As a writer or a reader, have you ever wanted to just talk to one of your favorite characters? Just the chance to sit and converse, not as part of the story but rather as something casual and informal to get to know them better. Well, I had the opportunity to do just that with Corsair, the infamous sky pirate captain from my award-winning steampunk historical fiction Corsair and the Sky Pirates thanks to Segilola Salami.
One of the many services she offers to independent authors is to post a one-on-one interview with a character from your book. This allowed me to further delve into the mind of my dashing yet mysterious sky pirate. You can read the whole interview HERE.
I’ve had the great opportunity to work with blogger, podcaster, and all around bookworm Segilola Salami over the past few years.

Loved reading this
This is such an interesting concept! Getting to interview a character from your own book sounds like a great way to get deeper into your own story. Have you found that doing so has helped you write the character more confidently in future stories?

It makes me understand my characters more as I write about them in future stories. This is a way to help get around those despicable episodes of writer’s block.
