Hello and welcome!
Did you enjoy day 1 in the “Discover new worlds” for the KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle ? I hope so.
Welcome to day 2, my guest is somebody very new to me, wish me luck 😉
What is your full name?
Diealnor ip Orfan dua Tramki – it’s a mouthful, I know. I swear, I didn’t choose it, it was forced on me.
I am not even going to try to pronounce that.
Do you have a nickname?
Now that is better.
What is one word best describes you?
Alone. My name makes me an outcast amongst my people, and really everyone. My family, well, they weren’t good men and I’m tainted by their blood so I must not be good either. Most people stay away from me because of it.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
The author portrayed me as being hopeful. I left my homeland to escape the persecution I faced there, hoping that in a new land, if I lied about who I was, I could escape my past, but I know that’s not true. People always find out. I wasn’t hopeful when I fled. I am now though, so…I guess…yes, to my author.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Bubbles. Don’t share that and I will deny it if questioned. But they tickle against your skin when they pop and they make children forget the world around them for a few moments to chase after the shimmering ball of soapy air. They are magical and laughter is a wonderful form of magic.
SHHH don’t tell him I revealed his secret, but isn’t he sweet? AWWW
What is your favourite dessert?
What’s dessert? I eat berries after most meals. Does that count? And the baker in the city makes cinnamon rolls for breakfast.
Cinnamon rolls can be dessert, so can berries.
What is your favourite drink?
Mead, though I’m more used to just water. Humans brew good mead though.
What is your greatest fear?
That I will turn into a monster like my father and brothers and the world will turn against me like it did against them, deservedly so.
What is your favourite colour?
Silver, like Sagila’s eyes.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Why would you wear anything when you go to sleep?
I know, right?
When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Her spirit. There’s something about a shining soul that entrances me, draws me close like a moth to the flame. Strength and kindness shine out of someone like a gift waiting to be claimed, but that claiming is not a thing of taking. It has to be earned and given in return.
I am already falling in love with him…
Do you have somebody in your life now?
Sagila. She’s the most perfect creature I’ve ever met. She never turned from me, not even when she learned my name; she stood close. I never thought to love myself, nor for someone to love me. It is a gift beyond measure and I will cherish it for an eternity.
What is one word best describes her?
Strong. She fled an abusive relationship and had to start over on her own, bereft of money or family or friends. Yet it didn’t break her, and it didn’t dim her spirit. She worked hard to give herself a life of her own choosing. She is my inspiration and my strength. It is my honor to offer my own as a meager protection for her safety now.
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
I suppose… I am the start of the future. My grandson is to be a prince, someone the world will want to destroy, who will have to trust in fate and love to thrive. He will be charming and true and change the world with the way he lives. He will be a king like no other before him, and his children will be the only hope of my – of all – peoples.
Thank you Diealnor for chatting with me, hope you will return one day in the future with updates.
So? What do you think? Will you enjoy reading Diealnor’s story? I am looking forward to reading it. He hails from The Elf and the Shoemaker by Andi Lawrencovna.
Thank you Andi, for sending my future BBF (book boyfriend) for a chat 😉
Andi Lawrencovna lives in Northeast Ohio where she was born and raised. She has spent nearly her entire life in the same area, minus the semester she spent studying abroad in England. Though she has not gone back recently, her lifelong goal is to open a pub in one of the small little towns in the Cotswold’s and shear sheep in the backyard during the slow hours of the day. Or, barring that, write about a pub keep with sheep who gets abducted by trolls or enspelled by a siren. Either path works for her.
She recently finished her MFA in creative writing from a low residency program out of state. Her mad-schemes of world pub domination currently are on the back burner while she endeavors to pass on her love of literature and writing to local area writers groups and panels.
Come back tomorrow for part 3 in the “Discover new worlds” for the KaLiCon Reader’s Bundle.
