The “Meet My Character” Blog Tour

I am so glad you stopped by to “meet my character”.  Christopher is anxious to have you know more about him, as am I, so let’s get started!

1) What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?Christopherpaintedright

Look up the name Faramund and you will find that it means “journey”. That’s how I got the name of my young main character for The Ultimate Treasure Quest I: The Jewel of Peru. I wanted a young character to lead readers on an incredible journey of intrigue, mystery, danger and adventure. Though fictional, his character has many of the same qualities, fears, and traits that many twelve year old boys would have. The name suits him perfectly as the story opens with him finding out that his parents and ship crew have vanished! While searching the ship for clues as to their whereabouts, he finds an enchanted treasure chest that “chooses him as its captain” and  leads him on a journey to find them and the Ultimate Treasure! As Christopher sets sail as the captain on his father’s ship, the Discovery , he  and his crew of  orphaned stowaways, must face their fears and venture into the unknown.  Who knows where they will end up?

2) When and where is the story set?

The story begins in early eighteenth century England. A time when ships sailed the seven seas and there was ever-lurking the fear of pirates. But the adventure really heats up when they are chased through the Devil’s Triangle and something very strange happens! The setting then changes dramatically, but I can’t give it away.

3) What should we know about him/her?

Hmmm. Just like any of us, Christopher is definitely not a “perfect” antagonist.  He has a few flaws that are revealed over the course of the journey.  Perhaps his most pronounced flaw is that he ventures ahead without considering how his actions affect others.  That leads him and the others  into a fair bit of  “trouble” on this perilous adventure. But fear not, he will find he has the “powers” that he needs to move forward on his quest.

4) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?

What would you do if  you were twelve years old and your parents were missing?  That’s what happens to Christopher in the very first scene of the story.  Everyone thinks that his parents and their crew were lost at sea, but Christopher doesn’t buy it.  Especially not after finding the Ultimate Treasure Chest that beckons him to set sail!

5) What is the personal goal of the character?  Christopher’s main goal is to find his parents and it would be cool to find the Ultimate Treasure, too! After all, who doesn’t like treasure?

6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?  Yes!  It’s called The Ultimate Treasure Quest I: The Jewel of Peru and new revised edition has just been released on Create Space, and Amazon on September 29 ,2014!  You can read more about it on my blog here at www.questteaching.com/wordpress/ or check out my author pages on Amazon or Good reads.  I would love to hear what you think about it after reading it. Will you fall in love with Christopher and the other stowaways as much as I did while writing it? Other readers say they have,  I you will too!New Release Special: 99¢

7) When can we expect the book to be published? The Ultimate Treasure Quest I: The Jewel of Peru has just been released on CreateSpace and Amazon in both print and ebook.  For a limited time until October 6th,  the kindle ebook is available for only 99¢.   Click the cover to get it quick at this price!
