FIREWALKER Countdown--COLBY--A Dragon

I have a winner for Day Five--Judy (magnolias_1)

The FIREWALKER Giveaway continues!

DAY SIX--(a new character) COLBY

Colby to Janet: “You’re bubbling with power, and sooner or later, you’re going to blow. I was willing to give Micky the benefit of the doubt for not offing you, and then I met you.” His smile was gone, his eyes darkening like Mick’s did. “Now I think it wasn’t his fault he couldn’t kill you. I’m betting you wouldn’t let him.”

Meet Colby, another inked biker who can turn into a fire-breathing dragon. He and Mick tangled years and years ago, and parted enemies. Now Colby might be Mick's only chance to survive his coming tests. Janet doesn't trust him, but she has no choice but to work with him.

Colby is dark-haired, blue-eyed, full of muscle and inked all over. He's snarky, smart, and up to something. I introduce him for the first time in FIREWALKER, and you'll see him again in SHADOW WALKER (coming in June).

As I sat down, Mick flashed me a warning look and said, “The magic mirror showed him everything.”
“Everything.” Colby’s grin became a leer. “It was stimulating, even if I had to watch through a lot of cracks.”
My face heated. “I swear I’m melting that thing.”
“Don’t be embarrassed," Colby said. "It was beautiful. Way better than anything I can find on that motel TV.”

I love writing new characters and lots of them. Do you prefer books that focus solely on the H/H with a few characters for spice, or do you like a lot of characters, with depth, running around?

Lol, oops for got the question. I like lots of characters with depth. The variety makes the story all the more interesting!

I love characters besides the H/H. It gives more depth to the story for me and I think it adds to the story. Besides who doesn't love at least a few sexy Heroes to hang out with. lol
Love these characters so far. :)

I totally agree with you Carol! You have to have a main character but having other in-depth characters makes the story more engaging and exciting. Besides, what female could resist being surround by very attractive males.

I agree with the others. A great story not only has the central H/H but a well developed supporting cast. It makes the story more believable.

Thanks for the comments. I love multi-character stories, hate "cardboard walk-ons" Not everyone likes the secondaries in the story too much, but I too think it makes things more realistic.

I'm having a great time with this contest. Thanks for playing!

I like a bit of both. I like stories that focus on the main characters with well rounded secondaries that support the main H/H and yet can hold their own so we can hope for sequels for more info.

I enjoy a bit of both because I want the main characters' story to be told and enough focus to be on them while at he same time it's enjoyable when family or secondary characters butt in.
