YES! Strong female characters! I want to see more of them in EVERY genre! :)
Leave it to you to mention naked and alcohol in your posts and call me over every time. It's like we were meant for each other! LOL...
It's been brought to my attention that I wrote 'kiss ass' instead of 'kick ass'! Oops - sorted now!Thanks, Alexandra! I think more and more genres feature stronger heroines now. Thank goodness. Jen, ha!I think we were separated at birth.
Just love taking a trip on Fridays!
I love your strong heroine, Talli.Karen
Erm... I left a comment over at Naked's just after Cap'n Alex's and I'm not sure it went through! Oh dear!!! Running away now! Take carex
Ha! You knew that naked thing would bring me running, yes?
NIce interview. It's obvious you have a deep understanding of your character, and what you want as a writer. Great read.
Hi Talli .. love the comedic mistake .. but am on my way over to see the Naked Friday full of strong characters .. cheers Hilary
Talli, I think you're right! I've been seeing more of them in the past few years. It makes me glad, because it's the only kind of heroine I write, and my favorite kind of book to read (I like any genre if I can really identify with the strong female lead!).
Have a lovely weekend, Talli.
Have a great weekend! :) Off to read your interview now!
Lately, it is difficult to exist in the blogosphere, and especially to leave comments. I wish you a great weekend.
Hooray kick-ass female characters! Brilliant, off to read that now!Have a great weekend too!
With a title like that, how can I not stop by?!
This is a good thing!In Fire's Daughter, I wrote a kick-ass character who doesn't really know she's kick-ass at the beginning of the story. But that's what makes it fun. Letting the reader find out along with her, or, sometimes even before her.Kick-ass women are good!
Fabulous post Talli. I really loved it.
I'll head over later today to read about your strong female characters. I already love Mattie, so I'm looking forward to it! Julie
Have a great weekend!
Have a great weekend too. I'll check that out.
Off I go - have a great weekend :)
Great post, and you can't beat kick-ass female characters. I can't wait to read Hating Game and your upcoming Willow Watts as well. :)Hope you have a great weekend too!
Here's to strong women. Just finished a Terry Pratchett book, Monstrous Regiment, with several strong female characters. (It's part of his Discworld series so there's lost of tongue in cheek.)
I love strong female characters. :) Have a fantastic weekend!
Well, now there's a blog title!
I love strong female characters, too. Happy Weekend!
Sounds like fun..I love strong female characters. Even in my m/g fantasy my girls are FIERCE....Have a great weekend Talli
ooh, I love kiss ass leads; we need more women like that~ I will stop by~Happy Weekend to you!
Strong women. The only kind to have. Years ago there used to be spark plugs advertised as "Tough but oh so gentle." Kind of like that. HaManzanita@Wannabuyaduck
...female heroines have gradually become all the rage in both the literary world, as well as in Hollywood. It has opened the doors for the likes of Katniss Everdeen and others to stand in the forefront of the action/drama genre.Heading over there now, Talli ;)EL
I'll go check it out!
Cool ... cI'll stop by and check it out.
Talli, I'm back! Boy have I missed you :DGoing there to check this post! Cheers my dear!
Hurrah for strong female characters... just wish I was one :) Ditzy, clumsy, disorganised, dithery... oh yeah, that's me ... Great article TalliLx
Great post, Talli. There's something about a strong heroine who stands her ground with an arched brow that just makes me go 'Yeah!' x
I read your Naked post and loved it! Can't have enough kick-ass heroines. (And if they yell a random "kiss my ass", even better.)
Hi Talli. I'm going over now. Is it hot enough to be naked over there, ha ha ha ha...
No wimpy characters for me; I like them with some serious personality. What a great post!
Sounds good, will by by shortly!
Going over to check the interview now....
Awesome. As a fan of kick-ass females, I look forward to checking this one out.
Hehe. I can't stop laughing at the title! I'm popping over to read your post now.Ellie Garratt
comments can be such a pain!
Coffee and wine for all!
