The random musings of Kate Grace

The Character POV Contest!

I’m working on a bit Imageof a bonus for all of you wonderful, oh-so-patient Burden of the Soul readers to tie you over until the release of Book 2 later this year. Just a little fun to give you more from Book 1.

As I wrote the book, I focused on Clara and most is told through her perspective. But each character has a story. When they leave a room things are still happening. Their stories progress. It just happens to be within Clara’s life they all converge.

So for some end-of-summer fun there will be bonus reading as a great big thank you to each and every one of you who have supported Burden of the Soul, spread the word about it and waited patiently for this author with a day job and a labrador puppy to get a move on with the next installment.

We’ll release three new chapters to Book 1… each one from a section of the book you already read through Clara’s perspective. But this time, you’ll see it through another character’s point of view. Two are already selected: Dave and Brik.

Here’s the fun part: YOU all get to pick the third. Comment here, Tweet me or post on our Facebook wall which character you want to hear from in Book 1, and include your reason why. Each vote will count and the character with the most votes/best reasoning at the end will be our third character.

There are only two rules:

1. Devin is off limits.

2. So is Rex.

(Sorry, y’all. You’ll hear from them later!)

We’ll keep this sucker open until This Friday, July 20 at 9pm EST. Comment on this post, post to Facebook or Tweet me. Each counts for one vote… so get creative!

    Ugh, Devin is off limits…can I say you’re mean without you getting mad? 😉 I vote for her mom, Claire, because she knows some things and I want to pick her brain and see what she is hiding!

      You can say I’m mean, that’s fine. I promise you will hear from him though! And I loved your suggestion, and seeing as you were the only one that gave a “why” and I had never considered how interesting Claire would be, it’s going to be Claire. Thanks!

    LOVED your book! I would enjoy hearing events from Brick’s perspective….especially given the last scene in Burden with Grace.

    How about from Grace, I say Grace or Claire. They have the most info next to Brik, and grace lasts a bit longer than claire. but either of them would be awesome!

      The Character POV contest ended last week and the “winner” is Claire. In order you’ll have a bonus chapter from Claire, then Dave and then Brik over the next couple months leading up to Book 2’s release around the holidays! Stay tuned for the release info.

It’s looking like I’ll be asking a little more of your patience here soon, but a full explanation to follow sometime this weekend.
