We’re thrilled to have here today Corinth from Andrew Cratsley’s new fantasy, Keepers of Runes and the Tower of Shadows. Corinth is a 120 and a Sage Knight, living in Enzlintine on the continent of Ithmilar.
It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Beyond the Books!
Thank you so for this interview, Corinth. Now that the book has been written, do you feel you were fairly portrayed or would you like to set anything straight with your readers?
I feel the story was adequate, however my knowledge of Terranesit (my world) would have been more accurate if the author had updated the archives in my local library. Why he created a world so different from what I read about I will never know.
Do you feel the author did a good job colorizing your personality? If not, how would you like to have been portrayed differently?
I was written appropriately, but was it necessary to make me look so dry? I know how to enjoy myself! How do I rest when Terranesit has gone mad?
What do you believe is your strongest trait?
The training I received from Master Tessius
Why must I answer that? (Shifts uncomfortably) It was my inability to defeat Mortiscet, however that business is far from over.
If you could choose someone in the television or movie industry to play your part if your book was made into a movie, who would that be (and you can’t say yourself!)?
Why not? If you insist I suppose I look much like Jason Stackhouse from True Blood, except for my hair of course.
Do you have a love interest in the book?
Well…(coughs and turns away from the smiling priestess) Who has time for that while battling across all of Ithmilar?
At what point of the book did you start getting nervous about the way it was going to turn out?
When we met the true threat of the region. Rest assured; he will be dealt with.
If you could trade places with one of the other characters in the book, which character would you really not want to be and why?
Norman. His virile stench of dragonfire wine is enough to offend every creature in the region.
How do you feel about the ending of the book without giving too much away?
What words of wisdom would you give your author if s/he decided to write another book with you in it?
Give me a chance to handle one crisis at a time! Mortiscet and Khalid? What were you thinking?
Thank you for this interview, Corinth. Will we be seeing more of you in the future?
Most definitely. There is much work to do.
