CHARACTER BLOWOUT. Day Two. Ashlynn Monroe's, Vampire Gabriel Interview. Chance to win!!!
It’s DAY TWO of A Writer’s Mind, CHARACTER BLOWOUT!
What does that mean? Pretty simple. You’ve arrived here in the nick of time. How so? Well, you get to meet a vampire today. His name is Gabriel Leleux and he’s jumped out of Ashlynn Monroe’s latest tale, PRAY FOR ME, to spend some time with us and allow me to grill him with a few questions.
So why would Gabriel allow this? Well, he’s participating in, A Writer’s Mind Character Blowout and that means he’s subjected himself to what I like to call, 'The Newlywed Game’ done blog style. Gabriel knows that I interviewed his love, Harley yesterday and was willing to pop in today to answer similar questions. You’ll notice as you read that I added snippets from Harley’s responses yesterday so that you could enjoy comparing. I highly recommend that you check out HARLEY'S INTERVIEW afterward to really ‘hear’ her voice.
There’s a contest being held! Ashlynn Monroe would like to offer one random lucky commenter that comments on both interviews a copy of PRAY FOR ME.
Let’s learn a bit more about PRAY FOR ME…
Gabriel put his faith in his God and his king…That was centuries ago. Harley is proud of her heritage and when she has the chance to give her hometown historical society a boost by booking an eccentric Swiss expert, she has no idea she booked someone who actually lived the history. Immortality is a long time to have a broken heart. Unable to stop himself, Gabriel draws the brilliant historian into his life. Harley discovers far more than Gabriel ever expected about history, his history! A quest to give Gabriel an answer to an old question will introduce them to the danger of a new enemy. Is love enough when your love wants you body, soul and blood?
So are you ready to ‘meet’ Gabriel Leleux? I know I am. Here we go…
SKY: Gabriel, tell us a little bit about you.
GABRIEL: Thank you for this opportunity Sky. I was born in France during the eleventh century. My brother and I joined the order of the Templar Knights before the order was disbanded. We were in hiding until the Grand Master was burned at the stake. That was the night I died, reborn as a vampire.
(Harley’s response… I’m a huge history buff. I love my job, with the state of Wisconsin preserving historical sights. I’m divorced, no brothers and sister, but my parents are great. I’m just a quiet average girl.)
SKY: Remembering the moment you first laid eyes on Harley, what thoughts come to mind?
GABRIEL: I wasn’t expecting such a delicious little mortal. I assumed she’d be a bit…frumpy.
(Harley’s response… OH-MY-GOD Gabriel is the hottest guy on Earth and I was expecting some old guy. Instead this sexy young mouth-watering piece of eye candy is standing there)
SKY: Harley has one trait you adored from the start. What is it? Hands down, she appreciates one of your traits…what do you think that is?
GABRIEL: How that brilliant mind could go from serious to sexual in a heartbeat. Mmm, good question Sky, she’d probably say my mind, but I know it’s my body.
(Harley’s response… , his brain. He might be delicious and buff, but I love a guy who can think. Umm, I think I’m blushing but I’m going to say my curves. He’s a bit old fashioned in what he sees as hot.)
SKY: *Grins* I enjoy your… modesty, Gabriel. *snickers* Harley has one trait you’d change if you could. What is it? You figure there’s probably a trait she might want to change about you… care to share?
GABRIEL: Oh, I’m going to be in the doghouse, but that little imp can snore to wake the dead. I’m sure she’d say my oldfashioned alpha male ‘tude.
(Harley’s response… Ha, he’s going to kill me but I’d love to change how cold his feet get in bed, even under the covers. I’m perfect, and he’d totally agree.)
SKY: Snore! *chuckles* But love is in the air. What is the single most romantic thing you’ve done for her?
GABRIEL: I died for her.
(Harley’s response… He died for me.)
SKY: Harley has a feature that draws your eye every time. Care to share? She can’t stare at you enough… but where is she staring? Now’s the time to gloat about your thick head of hair. *Sky sniggers* Truth! Do you think it’s your eyes? Chest? Etc.
GABRIEL: Her round backside, oh lord I can’t stop looking at it. She’s such an innocent thing, but she’s always feeling these biceps, I’m guessing that’s what she’d say.
(Harley’s response… The man has the most soulful eyes.)
SKY: How do you think Harley would answer the following… Our favorite thing to do together is…?
GABRIEL: We’re a bit square, I’d say our weekly trip to the museum.
(Harley’s response… I’d say hangin’ in the library)
SKY: You and Harley don’t see eye to eye on what issue?
GABRIEL: **snickers**Her mother!
(Harley’s response… Who’s really to blame for the French Revolution.)
SKY: Harley said one thing to you that you’ll never forget. What was it?
GABRIEL: Gabriel, I’m yours, always.
(Harley’s response… “Thank you for enjoying my first sunrise in centuries with me. I love you Harley.”)
SKY: Gabriel, I can’t tell you how fantastic it was having you visit, A Writer’s Mind. You and Harley are a great match! Thanks so much for stopping by. I look forward to reading, PRAY FOR ME.

Contest winners are selected by me using the random generator shown below. Each commenter who follows the rules given each week-whether it's to answer a question or simply comment-is assigned a number according to when they left their comment. For example: Jane comments first, then Sue, then Maria. Jane becomes #1, Sue #2, Maria #3. If the contest requires an answer to be left and Jane and Maria answer it, Sue does not, then Jane and Maria have entered the contest. Therefore, Jane is #1 and Maria is #2. Make sense? All numbers are then entered into the Random Generator. The number selected is therefore the winner. Make no mistake, I welcome those of you who choose not to enter the contest. Kind comments are always well received by visiting authors! Thanks so much. ~Sky
