… show me yours, and—I’ll show yeez mine…Authors’ Main Character Reveal Blog Tour… #TBSU…

 

…MEET MY MAIN CHARACTER TOUR : INTRODUCING : JACK CALDER…

…welcome readers and writers…

…a wee twist on the usual Blog Tour mechanism today… good friend, Christa Wojo, the author of The Wrong David, tagged me in a little game called Meet My Main Character Blog Tour…

… so, to participate, or not to participate… would be rude not to, eh?…

hello

…rules 

…the taggee must write a post answering the same seven questions about their Main Character… then the taggee becomes the tagger and chooses five other authors… sort of like a chain letter with all the potential to become a global virus…

…so, sorry, dear characters…

…yer personal secrets are under threat of exposure… better put on your shades and prepare to go into reclusion…

…now meet my main character.

…he’s the lynch-pin of the Jack Calder series… his name, surprise, surprise… Jack Calder… (bet that didn’t fool yeez for a minute)…

1. Tell us a bit about your main character? Is he fictional or a historic person?

…entirely fictional, except for the bit where he’s from my old tramping grounds in Docklands Govan in Glasgow… six feet two, blondish hair, blue eyes, usual chiselled features ready to be transposed to the silver screen in due course… thousands of yeez good people out there think he’s a dead ringer for this ol’ Jurassic Scots author himself… well, hundreds of yeez?… dozens maybe?… okay, one or two?… Auntie Mabel?… surely sumb’dy thinks there’s a passing resemblance to yours truly?…

Calder is a former SAS officer… served with distinction in dozens of covert black operations… now partner with two former colleagues in their own specialised security firm, looking after high value merchandise and personnel around the globe…

2. When and where are the stories set?

…the stories’ geographies stretch all over the world, and many other places… Asia, Europe, the Near East, North Africa, South America… depending on which novel yeez pick up… the stories are connected only by spinning around the core principal players, but are intended as stand-alone reads…

3. What should we know about him?

…he would prefer yeez know as little as possible about him… but the pages reveal him as a hard product of a tough Glasgow childhood upbringing… ruthless in operational execution… but he does have little emotional traumas occasionally… (that’s to let yeez know he is really human)…

4. What is the main conflict? What messes up his life?

…his early memory of losing a parent in desperate circumstances (no spoilers allowed here!) and those of the atrocities he witnesses during unpublicised war zones operations play havoc with his head from time to time… most of yeez as readers can prob’ly empathise with some of it…

5. What is his personal goal?

…keeping his family’s well-being sacrosanct, including his Chinese wife, May-Ling, who is also a partner in the firm… countering threats to her and his mates is one driving force in his life… as is the security of his clients’ business…

6. What are the titles of your novels, and can we read more about them?

…all three of the current crime thrillers are already available on Amazon Kindle, where downloads and sales have already topped 75,000 (who says yeez can’t get in a wee promo plug here and there?)…  here yeez go :

7. When can we expect the next book to be published?

…the fourth in the series, KILLER CITY, is Work In Progress, target launch on Kindle by the end of the third quarter this year…

And now, for the next victims…

1.  …first up, a great writer, John Dolan, he of the extraordinarily good Time, Blood and Karma series…

2. …yeez can’t miss Ailsa Abraham, a fun lady, with a remarkable attitude and resilience to whatever this ol’ life throws at her…

3. …try my buddy, Stephen Edger… yarn-spinner par excellence..

4. …include Alex Shaw, he’s seen a bit of stuff, let me tell me yeez… better still, let him tell yeez…

5. …not least, but lastly, Eric J.Gates… magnificent story-teller… what more do yeez need?…

…many thanks to Christa Wojo for press-ganging me aboard the Tour… check out her blog : http://christawojo.com/about/

  1. Ahggg! I’ve been tagged by That Man!

    Challenge accepted – Katie Lindon will answer the questions on July 3rd on my blog – she can’t do it before, she’s away on a covert mission… can’t say where, just that it’s a very green country, and was peaceful… until she got there!

  2. Thanks so much for participating, Mr. Gallacher! I was afraid to annoy busy fellow authors by tagging them and forcing them into more writing, but you are a gentleman, as always.

    I’m so happy to meet Jack Calder. I’m curious to know who you see playing him when he undoubtedly gets his moment on the big screen.
