What Motivates Your Characters By Dana Delamar

How to Make Your 
Characters Believable
There are many theories and techniques for building great characters. I like to mix and match from various sources. Here are some of my favorites:
Archetypes: Many characters fall into or are a blend of common archetypes: the Bad Boy, the Warrior, the Seductress, the Waif. Studying these archetypes and their common characteristics can help you figure out who your character is, what sort of decisions they’ll make, and what role they’ll play in your story. A good resource for learning the archetypes is “The Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes and Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes,” by Tami D. Cowden, Carolyn LaFever, and Sue Viders.
Zodiac signs: Another fun way of figuring out who your characters are is to read up on the various signs of the zodiac and figure out which one best reflects your character. Some great resources are “The Secret Language of Birthdays” and “The Secret Language of Relationships” by Gary Goldschnieder and Joost Elffers. Another popular book is “Sun Signs” by Linda Goodman.
If you’re writing romance, once you’ve chosen zodiac signs for your hero and heroine, you may have fun reading “Sextrology” and “Cosmic Coupling” by Stella Starsky and Quinn Cox. These books go in-depth into the sexuality of the various zodiac signs, and “Cosmic Coupling” gives detailed descriptions of how any two given signs will interact when it comes to sex and relationships.
 Research: Figure out what your character’s profession is, and then research it! What we do for a living heavily influences who we are and our worldview--and vice versa. Learn the details of how your character does their job. You won’t need to put all those details on the page (please don’t!) but giving your readers a sprinkling of the specialized jargon or procedures that your characters use will go a long way toward making them seem real.
If possible, try to meet with experts in your character’s field. For example, if your character is a cop, see if you can interview an officer or go on a ride-along. This will also give you a chance to make friends with an expert who may be willing to vet the details of your book (or answer questions) to make sure you got them right.
People you know: You know plenty of interesting people. Would any of them make great characters? Do they have fascinating or distinctive behaviors, mannerisms, beliefs, or speech patterns that you can give to a character?
Character interviews: Sit down and “interview” your character. What makes them tick? Why do they do the things they do? What matters to them? In a crisis, how will they react? What lengths will they go to if they feel threatened? What’s their favorite book, movie, ice cream flavor? How many times have they been in love--and with whom? And why?
There are a whole bunch of templates on the Internet that have reams of character questions that you can fill out. Aside from establishing your character’s age, height, build, hair color, eye color and other physical characteristics, these templates can help you dig into your characters and learn what’s going on with them.
Some places to start:
Character diamond: Another technique is to develop a character diamond. There are a couple different ways to do this:
o   The first method is to assign a character two primary characteristics, one quirky or unexpected characteristic, and another that masks their greatest fear or flaw. These form the four points of the diamond. You’re looking for characteristics that don’t change from moment to moment, but rather are stable. Think of traits, not moods. For example, your character’s primary two characteristics might be Loyal and Pessimistic. Their quirky characteristic might be High-Strung, and their mask characteristic might be Aloof (because they’re afraid to get close to anyone).
o   The second method is to focus on how the character’s traits influence the plot. With this method, the four points of the diamond would be: 1) the flaw that masks the character’s greatest fear, 2) the character’s biggest inner fear, 3) the character’s biggest need, and 4) the plan the character devises to achieve that need. This plan of course, doesn’t work as intended!
Some useful resources for developing your own character diamonds:
Goals, Motivations, and Conflicts (GMC): Understanding what motivates your characters will not only help you create believable characters, it will also help you create a believable plot. What are your character’s goals? Why does your character have these goals (motivation)? What is standing in your character’s way of achieving these goals (conflict)? How do your character’s GMCs intersect with the GMCs of other characters? Which characters will be allies, and which will be foes? A great resource for understanding how to apply GMCs to your characters is “GMC: Goal, Motivation and Conflict” by Debra Dixon.

Genre: Romantic Suspense (Mafia romance)

Heat level: Hot (RT Book Reviews scale), 4 Flames (All Romance eBooks scale)

Description:

REDEMPTION: A mobster seeking redemption. A woman on a mission. A powerful enemy ready to pounce...

Antonio Legato has always been an outsider, even though he's moved up in the Lucchesi mob organization. When he falls in love with Bianca Lucchesi, Antonio may at last become part of the family, but he's hiding an ugly secret about her father's death. Telling Bianca the truth will pit blood against blood and annihilate the family he loves.

Bianca Lucchesi reluctantly agrees to help her brothers ruin Antonio so they can take their rightful place in the organization. As assistant to the don's wife, Bianca seduces Antonio while pursuing her brothers' revenge. But her loyalty is divided--she and Antonio share a secret that he's unaware of.

When Bianca and Antonio learn that her brothers have rashly allied with a cunning enemy who is plotting against the Lucchesis, can they heal the family's wounds before everyone they love is destroyed?

Reviews:

"Redemption knocks it out of the PARK!!! This is the novel I was waiting for!!! I bugged, harassed (in the most loving way), prodded, messaged, emailed and generally made a pest of myself for MONTHS until Dana got this novel done; and get it done she did. WOW I was blown out of the water on this one." -- Steph's Book Retreat blog, 5 stars

"This series is awesome!!! If this series was ever made into a movie it would put the Godfather to shame! I am always pulled into the lives that Dana creates in her books. Heart beating so fast it is like I am part of the story line!!! If you are looking for fantastic writing style and being pulled into a story this is it!! I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. I WANT TO GIVE IT MORE THAN 5 STARS." -- Julie's Book Reviews blog, 5 stars

"When I compare the quality of the writing, the complexity of the plot and the development of the characters in this series to other books I have awarded 4 or even 4.5 stars to, this one is clearly worthy of a much higher rating than many of them.

Excerpt:

Her heart pounding, Bianca Lucchesi smiled at the man she’d come to see while doing her best to ignore the one she’d never wanted to see again. Antonio Legato. She’d arranged to meet her uncle at the bank instead of at his home because she’d hoped to avoid Antonio. And here he was anyway.
Dio mio, would her heart never slow down? One glimpse of him had been enough to bring everything back. Everything she’d tried so damn hard to suppress. To forget.


She widened her smile. “Zio Enrico,” she said as her uncle came around the desk and embraced her, kissing her on both cheeks. Marriage had agreed with her godfather. He was still lean, still handsome as sin, with that black hair and those chocolate eyes. He looked happy again—not stricken, the way he’d been at the funerals for her father and her brother Fedele.

Prego,” he said, motioning to the chair beside Antonio. “I don’t believe you’ve met my capo di societĂ , Antonio Legato.”

Would Antonio say something about their past? She stuck out her hand and tried to appear mildly interested. Anything but infuriated. Or hurt. “Don Legato,” she said.

Antonio rose and took her hand in his large one. Cristo, he’d grown. He was a man now—at least six feet, with the broad shoulders and slim hips of a male in his prime.

His blue eyes met hers, a shock of unruly blond hair falling just over them. A wave of heat rolled through her. How many nights had she dreamed of him? How many times had she relived those moments they’d spent together?

He flashed her a casual smile, as if he were completely unaffected by her, and pressed a kiss to her knuckles, the light brush of his lips reminding her of other places he’d kissed.

“Signorina Lucchesi. It’s a pleasure. I haven’t seen you since secondary school.”

“I wasn’t aware you knew each other,” Enrico said.

“We had a class together,” Antonio said. “Chemistry, I believe.”

Bianca wanted to kick him in the shin. Was he trying to flirt with her? Chemistry! Yes, they’d had it. But outside of class.

“You’re mistaken, signore. It was biology, not chemistry.”

“My error.” He was still grinning at her—the arrogant bastard. Did he think she still wanted him? Well, if he did, he was wrong.

Antonio released her hand, and they retook their seats. Bianca’s skin tingled where he had touched her, and she resisted the urge to press her hand to her mouth, to feel that tingling against her lips. 
Damn him. Antonio Legato was a hundred different kinds of infuriating.

And he knew it.


Other:

The prequel to the series, MALAVITA (Blood and Honor, Prequel) is available FREE at all retailers. Note that MALAVITA is more on the PG-13 side, whereas the other books in the series are all R-rated for sex, language, and violence.

Wild Rebel, Tequila 10 By P.T. Macias




Check it out!  

OMG! Wow, check out this review!! 
This made my day!!

Wild Rebel, Tequila 10: Tequila 10 Supernatural 

I admire author Patricia Macias; her De La Cruz and Razer 8 series seamlessly meld into the new paranormal series Tequila 10. These can be read as stand alone works, but are so much better when read together...

Her style is consistent and her characters epitomize "insta-love" when the heroes and heroines find their soul mate. Ms. Macias can write seduction hotter than 100 proof tequila laid out on a six pack in a packed bar on spring break.

Wild Rebel is the story of the Vhampier Emperor Vlastimir's youngest son, Prince Gregory who is an operative on the Tequila 10 team. The object of his desire is a werewolf which is an issue due to his title and the demand by the Emperor that he find a an appropriate mate to bring heirs to the thrown.

There is action, there is all kinds of sexy times with a little plot and intrigue mixed in to make for a smooth flowing story.

If you are at all familiar with this author - you know what you are getting with Rebel's story and if you do not know Patricia Macias' work - what are you waiting for - get to it!

Tequila 10 is a new series that’s full of paranormal entities. Werewolves, vhampiers, dragons, and a sorcerer are the supernatural realm enforcers. The special operatives work with the government, using their special abilities but also have their own agenda. Special operative monitor the supernatural community, even as they are swept into a whirlwind of love, truths, and untold passions. The supernatural realms are threatened and endangered. Time is running out! The enforcers are desperate to stop the menace.

Rebel, the youngest Vhampier prince, loves his independence, his life, and his women. His Father, the Emperor Vlastimir, has commanded Rebel to stop his wild rebel ways and select a mate, to procreate.


Rebel continues to enjoy his chosen lifestyle until he meets the beautiful, sexy, passionate werewolf, Amber Johnson. Rebel and Amber merge as one, against all odds. Their passion explodes. Their souls bond. Secrets are exposed.


Excerpt!


A few days later, Gregory anxiously drives down the coast to the Hell’s Night club that’s located across from the ocean front in southern California. The waves crash against the golden sand, foaming into bubbles like champagne. The night is clear and the moon shines on the sea creating a shimmering, black satin ribbon.

The club is full of young adults having fun, dancing and drinking. This club is the favorite haunt of the supernatural entities. Humans are allowed to enter the club but only with a supernatural escort.

The strong rock music blasts in the room, pumping up the mood and blood in their bodies.

Hell, this place is rocking crazy, thinks Rebel. He walks down the room towards the bar. He leans against the counter at the bar. He turns to order a glass of whiskey. He then turns around, and he taps his fingers on the counter to the beat of the song. Rebel watches the couples move to the beat in sensual dance.

Hell, I know she’s here. I can feel her. He turns to the right to watch a beautiful, sexy girl sway to the music in a fluid sensual movement. She raises her delicate feminine arms and waves her hands up in the air, smiling a small sexy smile. She closes her eyes, her incredible long thick eyelashes fan above her fair flushed checks. Her hands sway along with the beat, as she feels the powerful musical pitch seep into her body, vibrating in every muscle. The fact that she’s a werewolf magnifies the sensation as her hearing is extra sensitive.

She’s wearing a sexy black skirt and a silver top that clings to every curve. Her long, golden-brown hair glimmers with the lights, swaying softly and silkily around her shoulders with each move. The huge silver hoops in her ears swing along with her moves, drawing attention to her beautiful face. She’s a sexy and passionate young beauty.

She gazes into his beautiful brilliant blue eyes, smiling her small sexy smile. I’m waiting for him to make the first move. I know that he’s a Vhampier. I know that he’s Prince Gregory Vlastimir. And I know that he knows I’m a werewolf. Oh, but how sweet this mutual passion feels, thinks Amber.

His eyes glow, drinking up the sight of her passionate dance. He takes a drink of his whiskey, 

nodding. Hell, yeah, she’s mine. I know I shouldn’t mess around with Amber but I can’t help it. I’ve been seeing her every week. We dance a couple of songs, and I take a couple of sweet kisses. I’ve learned all about her. We talk a little. We spend some time together. Then I force myself to leave when it gets intense.

Amber opens her huge green eyes, smiles her small secret sexy smile. She gazes into Rebel’s eyes.
Oh yeah, he’s what I’ve always dreamed of. I can’t wait to make love. I know we will because our souls cried out from the moment that we ran into each other on the dance floor weeks ago. I’ve returned every week to see him. She continues swaying to the intense pounding beat.

Rebel squints his eyes, slowly scans her body, and pushes away from the bar. Amber wants me as much as I want her, I know it. I can feel it.

Rebel walks over to her and pulls her into his arms. He holds her close, leans close to her ear. “Amber, I want to dance all night with you,” he whispers.

Amber shudders as she feels the intense burning sensation run through her body. Oh yes, I know that when we finally make love there’s going to be an inferno.

“Gregory, I want to dance all night with you,” whispers Amber. She reaches up and nibbles his ear, enjoying his groan. She wraps her arms around his neck and they sway to the music.

Rebel holds her close, erupting into a fierce inferno. He shudders from the intense emotions running rampant.

They dance for a couple more songs, holding on tight to one another, and kissing.

Hell, this is exactly what we’ve been doing, kissing and dancing. This is not going to be enough tonight, not when I’ve made up my mind to have her. I’m not fighting it anymore.

He moves to a corner of the dance floor, holding her closer. He pulls away to kiss down her neck. “Amber, I want you.” He shudders, clenching his jaw to control the intense emotions erupting out of control.






Meet P.T. Macias

I’m P.T. Macias (Patricia), I reside in Sacramento, California with my loving husband, children, and family. I adore my four beautiful grandchildren. I was born and raised in San Jose, California.
I love going on cruises, concerts, white peaches, pistachio ice cream, and margaritas. I’m an avid reader and I love paranormal romance suspense thrillers.

I love writing about drama, suspense, and intrigue. I throw in a dash of love and passion. I'm intrigued with the different types and depths of love. Love is powerful and motivates an individual. I'm fascinated with the physiological, spiritual, and psychological process that love creates. The range and facets of love an individual is capable of feeling is what I strive to illustrate in my stories.

I love the paranormal genre. I find this genre an exciting challenge and I enjoy writing about the sexy vhampiers, werewolves, dragons, and other entities. My greatest thrill in the paranormal genre is the limitless range of characteristics, powers, and weaknesses available to develop my characters' and entities' realms.

My champions are amazing, strong men. They're intelligent, sexy, and passionate men that love with their entire beings.

The lovely ladies in my stories capture the men's hearts. They're smart, sexy, and full of love. My ladies blossom, mature, and complete my heroes.

C.A. Tibbitts Author Tells Us All

First and foremost, it is a pleasure to have you here. 
So, can you tell us what makes C.A. Tibbitts tick?  What got you started on the path to becoming an author?

Growing up, English and Literature were my favorite subjects in school and college. After I got married (almost 18 years ago!), the internet and instant messaging were getting pretty popular. I created a "fan fic" writing group based on the first television version of La Femme Nikita (Peta Wilson version).  It is still active at present!
When I quit my last 'outside of home' job (a paralegal for a District Attorney), I decided to write a short story and publish it, just to see if anybody besides me would read it.  That short story is Shifted For Love, and it is the first book in my current series Pepper Valley Shifters!
This current book, Shifter Under Cover, uses my 'sweet spot' for writing, as it has a lot of elements I use in my writing group.  It is my favorite book I've written so far!

What are you currently working on?  Would you care to share a snippet?
Currently working on a short story for the next Mystical Box Set Babes anthology that will publish May 1, 2015.  Tentatively titled "Ghost Of A Chance", here is a small excerpt: 
On her way to the front desk, she tried in vain to shift away the strand of hair that kept falling over her left eye.  A large shadow fell over the desk.  "Hello, and welcome to the…"  She finally looked up.  Oh, this day just keeps getting better and better!  Sarcasm, her dearest friend.
Grant Harrison flashed that hundred-watt grin at her, and though it had been almost fifteen years since she'd last saw him, her panties dampened and her nipples hardened to the point of cutting glass.
"Hi, Ness."
"What are you doing here?"  Harsh, maybe, but he was the one that left.  She often daydreamed about what might have been if her high school sweetheart, her first for everything, hadn't left to play football at the University of Oklahoma.  Never mind that he had begged her to come with him.  Missouri was her home, and she was content to live her life in the only home she'd ever known.
His smile faltered and a sadness crept into his features.  "Momma died last night."

Do you include some of your own personal experiences in your books or do you prefer to use your imagination?
Mostly my imagination, but I admit that a good portion of my female characters are very stubborn and sarcastic (like me).

What genre do you typically write in and why did you choose this over others? 
I typically write in paranormal romance, though I am beginning to branch out in contemporary.  I write the same genres that I read.

Do you have a specific process or a ritual you go through when sitting down to write?
Since I am a visual person, I decide on an actor or sports person (someone in the public eye) that my character(s) will look like.  I gather several pictures of them into a file for the book, and if stuck, I will look at those or watch interviews and such - and that helps me get going again!

Where do you find your inspiration for your plots?  Do you have any tricks of the trade you would care to share? 
Usually, I am just doing mundane things, where you mind wanders (like doing dishes or cleaning), and I'll come up with things that I think could be great.  The idea grows from there.
I would say you need to figure out what inspires you. Are you a visual person (like me), or do you like to sit down and plot out the entire story, etc.  Go with what works best for you and your own style.

What is the oddest place/situation where an idea for a book/plot has come to you?
Some of my best plot points have come from my husband's dreams!  He had this awesome dream of a belt that turned into a motorcycle - and I used that for an alien visiting Earth story!  He has the craziest dreams!  Hey, take inspiration where you find it! ;)

What makes a book stand out and perk your interest?
First and foremost, I look at the cover.  Then I will read some/all of the blurb to see if it interests me.  If I am unsure, I'll look at some of the reviews.
I have a new book blog, and it has taught me that I like all sorts of things I would never have chosen for myself!  It's okay to venture out of your comfort zones sometimes.  You just might like what you find!

We all have our favorite authors.  Can you share some of yours and tell us why you like them?
Eve Langlais:  I love her stories because they are hot, but also tend to be very humorous.  I love that!
Laurann Dohner:  Her ongoing "New Species" series is my all-time favorite!  (I think it's up to mid-teens in number of books)  Always hot, tons of action!
Rebecca Zanetti:  So sad to see her vampire "Dark Protectors" series end, but it was also SO satisfying!  Super hot, lots of action!  I am also not-so-patiently awaiting books from her other series - a super soldier series, and a cowboy series. Both are awesome!
I have so many other favorites, but can't list all of them here!

We all have a pet peeve, care to share yours?
At home, I despise when I am in the zone writing, and I get tons of phone calls! Most tend to be unsolicited sales. Ugh!

When you’re not writing, what are the things you enjoy doing to relax?
Watching TV with my husband, social media sites (Facebook addict here!), shopping, swimming in my pool (sadly, only in summer), and most of all - READING!  I always am in the middle of reading a book. When finished, I WRITE A REVIEW AND POST EVERYWHERE, then begin another book! J

Thank you so much for joining me here today. Good luck on all your future books. 

Where can we find your books?
Currently, I am exclusively on Amazon.  I am slowly making headway for printed books as well.  Shifter Under Cover will be the first in print, and should be available during this blog tour!
The Mystical Box Set Babes anthologies are everywhere online!

We would love to reach out to you, please share your social media active platform.

Wicked Blush, Tequila 10 By P. T. Macias


Available! Check it out! Wicked Blush!


Wicked Blush, a beautiful dragonette, is sad and frustrated. She refuses to return to her realm to marry the stranger that she was promised to at the time of her birth. Blush has reached the fork in the road and now she has to make some soul wrenching decisions.

A handsome stranger at the Christmas party draws her in and she chooses to forget her fiancĂ©. This Christmas, there’s a special gift for more than one of the elite operatives.

Her decision takes her on an incredible journey of secrets, deep passions, and truths. Will she be able to keep her heart? Can she escape her destiny and her soul mate?

Blush is one of ten special operatives that work with the government, using their special abilities but also have their own agenda. These special operative’s monitor the supernatural community, even as they’re swept into a whirlwind of love, truths, and untold passions. The supernatural realms are threatened and endangered. Time is running out! The enforcers are desperate to stop the menace.



Here's a little excerpt 

Connor leans against the wall next to the window watching Josephine aka Blush.
Blush stops in front of the huge Christmas tree. She looks for Storm or Cassie. Geeze, I just saw them, where did they go?

Blush is wearing a beautiful silky shimmering dusty rose dress that shimmers when she moves. The sweetheart bodice is fitted down to the waist, the dress has straps that fall off her shoulder in a cascade of material, and the skirt is a beautiful sheer chiffon that flares out in a cloud around her thighs. She’s wearing incredible silver strappy shoes that sparkle.

She moves her head and the beautiful diamond chandelier drop earrings sparkle as she moves. Blush moves her right hand up to her waist and looks around the room. The beautiful diamond bracelet that looks like a wide cuff sparkles brilliantly.

Connor takes a drink of his coke. Ah, I love her beautiful sapphire blue eyes. Hell yes, she’s wearing the diamond cuff bracelet that I sent her for her birthday. I wonder if she’s aware of this.

Geeze, almost everyone is a couple. Only a few of us on the team are still single. Hmm, it’s not like I can fall for someone when I’m already engaged. Yeah, to someone I don’t’ know. This sucks. She moves her hand to adjust a strand of hair that escaped her diamond clip.

Hmmm, I can feel someone watching me. Who could it be? Wow, I know everyone here. She slowly turns to look around and notices the handsome young man leaning against the wall near the window. Uh, I don’t know him but I can tell that he’s a dragon.

She looks at him glancing down to his black shiny leather shoes. She then moves her gaze up his black slacks, up to perfectly fitted black classic tuxedo. She narrows her eyes, nodding her pleasure. 
Oh yeah, the tux fits him perfectly.

Oh yeah, my dragonette is a beauty. I love her style and her black hair is silky shiny beautiful. Connor takes a drink of his coke.

Blush gaze moves up to scrutinize his perfect square jawline that has a short black goatee framing his luscious full red lips. She bites her lower lip, moving her gaze up to his eyes.

He moves his gaze up to her beautiful face and gazes right into her beautiful eyes.

Hell yes, she’s noticing me. She doesn’t have a clue she’s mine. I love her blue sapphire eyes.

Omg, those eyes are truly clear turquoise, my favorite color. I’ve only met a few people that have that beautiful shade of clear turquoise that sparkles.

Blush gazes into his eyes falling, falling deep into his soul. She blinks rapidly, she’s shaken, and blushing. She turns around and walks over to Storm and Dawn walking into the hall with the babies in their arms.

Omg, omg I felt his soul and I swear mine merged with his. I can’t do that. I’m engaged and I can’t fall in love with someone here on earth even if he’s a dragon.

Connor pushes away from the wall and shoves his hands into his pockets. Oh Hell yes, she recognizes that she’s my soul mate. She felt our souls merge. I want to run after her so badly but I can’t. I know that she’s afraid of her feelings.

He turns to walk over to the bar to get another coke. Oh hell, I need another drink.


Meet P.T. Macias

I’m P.T. Macias (Patricia), I reside in Sacramento, California with my loving husband, children, and family. I adore my four beautiful grandchildren. I was born and raised in San Jose, California.
I love going on cruises, concerts, white peaches, pistachio ice cream, and margaritas. I’m an avid reader and I love paranormal romance suspense thrillers.

I love writing about drama, suspense, and intrigue. I throw in a dash of love and passion. I'm intrigued with the different types and depths of love. Love is powerful and motivates an individual. I'm fascinated with the physiological, spiritual, and psychological process that love creates. The range and facets of love an individual is capable of feeling is what I strive to illustrate in my stories.

I love the paranormal genre. I find this genre an exciting challenge and I enjoy writing about the sexy vhampiers, werewolves, dragons, and other entities. My greatest thrill in the paranormal genre is the limitless range of characteristics, powers, and weaknesses available to develop my characters' and entities' realms.

My champions are amazing, strong men. They're intelligent, sexy, and passionate men that love with their entire beings.

The lovely ladies in my stories capture the men's hearts. They're smart, sexy, and full of love. My ladies blossom, mature, and complete my heroes.
