I've recently had the, er, privilege, to sit down with Luke, a character from Leah Clifford's A Touch Mortal, at the club where his band often plays for an interview. After this glimpse into Luke, enter for your chance to win a copy of A Touch Mortal!
Kari: Since you aren't a central character, why don't you tell my readers a little about yourself first? *looks around club* And why you love this place so much.
Luke: Tell you about myself? And kill the mystery so early? Let's not rush things, love. *leans back, stretching nonchalantly as he takes in Aerie with a grin* I prefer to play at Aerie because the crowds are always so...eager to please, and it makes me eager to please them. I play faster here, sing better. I give them what they want.
Kari: *smirks* Mystery, huh? How much mystery can there be in a lead singer who wears leather pants? And yes, I imagine you do give them what they... want. But for those of us who don't know the history, how did your band get started?
Luke: *chuckles* I like leather. There's something phenomenal about being covered in something else's skin, wouldn't you say? The band started out of boredom. I needed a hobby. *he winks* Idle hands and all that.
Kari: *rolls eyes* You're a real charmer, let me tell you. So let's get to the good stuff. Tell me about the Siders. Surely you know some good secrets on them?
Luke: The Suiciders are a mystery to us all. Personally, I'm doing my best to find out more information but so far we only know that their Touch works like a drug. The mortals can't control themselves when they're on it, for better or worse. It's a wonderful little talent. I'd love to put it to my own uses. *stares off* I mean being able to control chaos? As long as the Bound stay out of it, things could get quite interesting.
Kari: *shrugs* But Gabe's Bound, and rumor has it, he's been protective a rogue Sider. One with special abilities. Perhaps some abilities even you can't touch? *raises a challenging eyebrow*
Luke: I'll touch anything I like. *stands and slams his chair back against the table* Gabriel has a nasty habit of hording all the fun toys. One of these days it's going to bite him in the ass. *he grabs for an electric guitar leaned against a mirrored pillar* Well, love, it's been a time, but ours has come to an end. *Luke smiles* Soundcheck.
Ah, Luke, ever the charmer. But that, my awesome followers, is a small intro to one of the great characters in A Touch Mortal.
