Evade by Jessa Russo Blog Hop

If I were not an honest person, I would say that I had already read Ever. If I were a better person, I would have read, loved, and rated Ever before this blog post. Unfortunately, I am an honest person, so I will have to admit to my failures.

Frankly, I owe Jessa a HUUUUUUGE apology for not getting this done. Yes, I have been busy. Several life things have gotten in the well as getting sucked into the rabbit hole of my own writing.

Please forgive me!

That being said, I will not fail in recommending a character for Evade (the second book in the Ever trilogy). For what it is worth, I have read the first few pages and I'm totally hooked.

See, her instructions were pretty clear. Come up with a character. Pretty simple. The part I forgot to do was read Ever so I could ensure that my character could fit. Err....ok...well, we'll just have to use my warp imagination and see if I can come up with something. It's YA. I write YA. It has ghosts. I wrote a ghost story. I can do this.

It's a tough choice. Good or evil (or as Jessa says "Douchecanoe").

Although, I personally love being portrayed as a villain, I think I will put vanity aside and suggest someone else.


  • Name: Susan
  • Age: 16
  • Gender: Female
  • Good or bad? Good
  • Description: 5'9". Slender. Medium length wavy dark blond hair. Hazel eyes. Glasses. Smart, quiet, and a little shy. Can be goofy around people she knows. Comes across as fairly straight laced but has a wicked sense of humor in situations where she's comfortable.
So, there you have it. My character. And yes, I know this person quiet well. I've known her for about 20 years now. She still puts up with me. I made her a teenager since it is YA, but the real person used to be a HS teacher, so you can make her that was well. As a teacher, she was tough but fair. Student's would "hate" her, but at the same time love her because she would treat them with respect.

'Till Next Time
