This week when I posted my novel Madeline Mann on Kindle, I also began the sometimes weary process of promoting the book.
But then I remembered that, way back in 2007 when I initially sold Madeline Mann, Maddy had started her own blog. I unearthed this online diary and found that she had a lot to say. After all, Madeline is a reporter with an appropriately inquisitive mind.
One of her challenges, however, is being saddled with the nickname "Madman." This moniker was given to her by her brothers when they were all very young, and Madeline has been trying (unsuccessfully) to live it down ever since.
I'll let her tell you in her own words.
I'm thinking that Madeline might be better at telling her own story than I ever could be.
Do you let your characters tell their stories?
