Please welcome the amazing Elle Kennedy to the ‘vert today. And bonus!!! She’s giving a book away! Woo Woo!
Hey everyone! I’m happy to be riding with the top down today—my hair looks really good windblown. Actually, it doesn’t. Also, I’ve never ridden in a convertible before (I know, right?), which, incidentally, sets the tone for this guest blog.
I’m a total wimp. I really, really am. I don’t do anything exciting, unless you count playing board games, or taking an occasional vacation to an all-inclusive resort. Or watching a lot of TV. Reading. Walking my dog. Yes, people, I’m a real daredevil.
But when you’re a wimp, there are also a lot of benefits. Like, nobody will be pointing guns at you, you won’t have any broken bones because goons won’t be torturing you, you’ll never be locked up in a sociopath’s Colombian prison. Um, what else…oh, pretty much everything that happens to my heroine in MIDNIGHT RESCUE.
I have to admit, I might have been a little tough on Abby. Fortunately, she is fully capable of handling all the horrible situations I threw her way. As an assassin, she can handle herself, thank you very much.
I think it’s ironic, the things my dark imagination will come up with, when in reality, I’m more of a hiding-in-the-corner gal than a running-toward-danger one. Don’t get me wrong—I’m no pushover. I’ll stand up for myself, defend my family and friends until my dying breath, and I’ll fight for what I believe in. But come on, one time I FAINTED after stubbing my toe (In my defense, it was the worst stubbing ever and I’m pretty sure I broke my little toe because of it, so don’t judge!)
That’s the beautiful thing about writing fiction, though. You can create whatever crazy, dangerous, terrifying situation you want, and then live vicariously through your characters—all the while remaining in the wimpy safety of your home, putting an ice pack on your baby toe!
So, I’m curious—any daredevils out there? Any fellow wimps? What’s the most dangerous thing you’ve ever done—or always wanted to do but haven’t? Anyone who comments today will be entered in a draw to win a copy of MIDNIGHT RESCUE, so don’t be shy! Giveaway ends at midnight eastern time.
