Girls Just Wanna Have Fun: Princess Dalia!


I am so very excited to participate in Jaycee and Victoria's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! Blog-HopThe idea is to interview the heroine from your manuscript, WIP, or novel.  Your featured heroine can be interviewed by her best friend, a heroine from another one of your written works, a sister, the opportunities are endless!

My interview features Liora and Princess Dalia, the two ladies from my novel, "Nameless".  Though I am currently working on Princess Dalia's shining moments in the second book of the series, you get to meet the girl that gave up everything to help the healers.  Our heroine has a lot of hard changes in her life, but she's a unique character.  The novel is written from Edom's perspective, but we get to read Dalia's perspective in the second book.  (I haven't revealed the title yet, so it will just be referred to as Book Two.)  

Hello, my name is Liora and I am Edom's little sister. Today, I will be interviewing Princess Dalia - the spoiled princess that changed the life of my brother and she made me think differently about the people living in the shelter of the capital.  She's stubborn, but she's innately kind, despite everything.

How I imagine Dalia looks, source
Thank you Liora.  That's too nice, but I'll take it.  My name is Princess Dalia Genevieve, daughter of King Alined and Queen Marisa.  I used to live in the palace, but I made a choice to help a boy and it changed everything.  

You're right.  I'm sorry.  Let's start with the first question.  How would you describe your hero?

My hero... would be Edom, your brother.  Although ironically, I tried to save him and he kidnapped me for helping him.  It wasn't the best beginning, but there was something about Edom.  Granted, he is more stubborn than me and he doesn't smile.  I deceived him and... Edom forgave me.  I've hated him and fought with him, but he hasn't given up on me.  I don't deserve his grace, letting me live with the healers and taking care of me.  He's... a secret angel.

That was a little awkward for me, but Edom is a great big brother.  Next question; What's the best date 
you've ever had?

I've actually only been on one date.  When you're the daughter of a monster, there's not exactly a line of guys waiting for you.  Edom took me on my first date.  He made me jump into freezing cold water from behind a waterfall and we laid in the sun, just talking.  It was perfect.

What is one thing you believe can tell a lot about a person?

Edom, source
Eyes.  They can't really lie to you.  I've seen my father's eyes when he orders a child to die and his eyes are cold.  Edom is different.   His eyes... the color of the sky before a storm, grey.  You can see that he's passionate about protecting his people and he loves his baby sister.  When he looks at you... you know that Edom is speaking to your heart and he means everything he says.  

(Liora smiles)  He looks at you the same way.  Anyway, next question is boxers or briefs?

Umm... I'm not really sure what that means... is that a type of fighting?  I'm familiar with blades and bows, but not with boxers and briefs.

I have no idea what that means either.  Hmm.  The last question is, what can the readers expect to see from you in Book Two? 

Oo, great question.  I can't reveal much about Book Two, but I can tell you that it's the second book after "Nameless" and it's written from my perspective.  So, you get to find out a little bit more about the spoiled princess that became a little more vocal.  My heart goes through some pretty big challenges; there's a big secret that I have to deal with and it won't be easy.  I become more than a princess.  I even get to kick butt some.  At the same time, Book Two is a little darker and I am even flogged in the first chapter, but I do go through a lot of growth. 

Awesome!  Thanks for letting me interview you, Dalia!

You're welcome! 

So, you've now met my lovely heroine, Princess Dalia and Edom's sweet little sister, Liora.  Here's her song:

    1. Thanks Christine! :) I've always kinda wondering what people would think if boxers and briefs didn't exist in their world. It would be a strange question.
