Yesterday I featured author Cameo Renae's book in my Bargain Book Bin. If you missed my review of In My Dreams by Cameo Renae you can read it here.
Renae's book is a touching tale of a boy who is trying to protect the girl he loves from beyond the grave. A stroy that reminds us again that true love doesn't die. If you are a sentamentalist and a fan of the movie Ghost, you will love this poignant story. Best part, you can grab an ebook on Amazon for $1.99, or stick around to enter to win a copy at the end of this guest post.
Now here with a multi character post is Cameo and some of the characters from her book: Lizzie and Michael, the young lovers, parted by an untimely death and Liz's best friend Emily and their friend Tyler. Take it away gang:
If you had to change something in your life what would it be?
Lizzy – We ALL know what that would be… for Michael to be alive, of course.
Tyler – And me dead?
Lizzy – I didn’t say it… YOU did.
Tyler – But I know you were thinking it.
Emily – Could you two please give it a rest?
Michael – Hello!? I’m still here!
Lizzy – But not physically. And that totally sucks - I can’t even touch you!
*Lizzy tries to grab Michael’s arm but her hand goes right through him. She bursts into tears.*
Michael – It’s alright.
Lizzy – No! It’s not alright! *sobbing*
Emily - Heidi… Could we please move on to the next question?
If you could meet anyone in history, who would it be and why?
Tyler – Ghangas Khan. Because he was totally kick ass.
Emily – Cinderella, because she went from rags to riches and got to marry a Prince.
*Tyler and Michael glance at each other, then burst into laughter*
Lizzy – Emily. Cinderella is make-believe. She’s not real.
Emily – But I thought –
Tyler – You thought wrong, babe.
Michael – Next question….
What would describe your personality...give an inanimate object… Ex. I'm like a book....So much more inside once you get to know me.
Tyler – I’m like a gun. Sometimes I’m loaded, sometimes not, but I always get my target.
Lizzy – Not every target. *sneers*
Tyler – Thanks for the reminder.
*Michael chuckles to himself*
Emily – Loaded? Tyler?
Tyler – Not anymore, babe. It was just an analogy. I’m clean. Totally clean.
Michael – Well…I’m like a glimmer. Seriously.
Lizzy – Well, I love the way you glimmer.
Michael – Thanks Liz. *They stare endlessly into each other’s eyes*
Emily – I like the way you glimmer too, but not as much as Lizzy does.
Tyler – And what about me?
Emily – I like that you’re not loaded anymore. *Emily smiles – Tyler huffs*
Lizzy – I’d have to say that Emily… well…she’s like a grab-bag gift. You never know what to expect.
*Emily glances at Lizzy with a dumbfounded look*
Lizzy – But she’s totally fun and my best-friend.
Emily – Thanks Lizzy! You’re the best… And Lizzy’s like a strawberry - pretty on the outside and sweet inside.
Lizzy – Oooh-kay? *Raises eyebrows and shrugs* Thanks, Em.
Emily – Of course! *winks*
Tyler and Michael – NEXT!
Do have a special place to write or read?
Tyler – I don’t read OR write.
Emily – That’s not good Tyler. You should try it. I write in my diary every day, and love to read in my bedroom.
Emily – Yep.
Tyler – Am I in it?
Emily – I’m not telling you! Hello! It’s a diary… you know… secret.
Lizzy – *Clears throat* I used to like to read at Lake Liz.*tears stream down face*
Michael – It’s okay, Liz. *trying to comfort her*
Tyler – I said I was sorry, Liz.
Lizzy – *Sniffles and dries tears* I know… I’m still trying to deal with it all.
Have you ever experienced continuous writer's block? How did you escape?
Tyler – I think this one’s for Cameo Renae. She’s in the waiting room outside.
Emily – Should we go and get her?
Lizzy – Yeah… we should.
Michael – I’ll get her! Hold on…
*Michael disappears, and re-appears a few seconds later with a distressed look on his face.*
Lizzy – What’s wrong?
Michael – I think she’s pissed cause’ I popped in and scared her.
*Cameo Renae walks in with her hand over her heart and shoots Michael a dirty look.*
Cameo – Michael, you scared the bejesus outta me! Don’t just appear unannounced like that! At least give me some kind of warning!
Michael – Sorry. I didn’t mean to.
Cameo – *Sighs* It’s alright. So what’s up?
Lizzy – Heidi has a question for you.
Emily – Yeah… she wants to know if you’ve experienced writer’s block, and if you did… how’d you escape?
Cameo – Ummm- Well, I actually never experienced writer’s block for In My Dreams *knock-on-wood*, but I have had a bout with it on the new book I’m writing. If I get stuck, I usually go through the outline and pick a spot that I know I can write about, and then go back to the troubled spot later.
Tyler – That’s a cool plan of attack.
Cameo – Thanks. So… how did you guys do?
Tyler, Michael, Lizzy and Emily – Good.
Cameo – Cool.
Emily – Cameo, can I ask you a question?
Cameo – Sure Em. Shoot.
Emily - Is Cinderella really make-believe?
*Cameo looks at all the others in the room with wide eyes. They shrug and roll their eyes.*
Cameo – Yes, honey. Cinderella is make-believe. Why?
*Emily sighs and slinks back into her chair.*
Emily – Nevermind.
*Cameo glances at Heidi* I hope they behaved themselves. Thanks so much for letting us visit!
