Interview of a Character: Imogene from Harvest (Includes a Plea and Spoilers)
While digging through the old posts recently I remembered having finished posts and never gotten to posting them. This is another one of those.
Character interview of Imogene from The Blasphemer Series: Harvest (book two).
The Interviewer: When you’re introduced into the book you’re struggling with withdrawals, do you wish you’d been introduced in a different way?
Imogene: It’s how the story went. I can’t change it or how I was living my life at the time. You’d try and find an escape too if you have my curse they call a gift.
The Interviewer: Can you share with us something we may not know about you?
Imogene: I liked cheesecake and coffee.
The Interviewer: Is there anything that upset you about the book?
Imogene: It seems I was almost forgotten except for Margot and Isiah. I miss him.
The Interviewer: Will we see you in future books?
Imogene: Perhaps. Not all of the stories have been told yet. It’s up to the author to discover a way to bring me back into the fold. I’m not sure how I would or my purpose. It’s not like I had much of one in the first place.
The Interviewer: Well that’s just not true. A lot of people like you. They wanted to know about you, your relationship with Isiah, and some even asked the author to do a book of just you. As a side-story type of thing.
Imogene: Interesting. It’d be interesting to see what the author would have to say about me in a side-story book. What would that even be called? A companion novel?
The Interviewer: Yes, that’s what those books would be called. So, Imogene, we know what happens near the end of the book. So is there something you wish all the readers knew that perhaps got left out of the story?
Imogene: There is something, but I’m not sure how well it would’ve done. You see the writer writes in a certain style that may leave out things. If the main character can’t witness it then sometimes it doesn’t make it in. It’s a mix of third-person narration and first-person. I’ve personally never seen a book written like it. I wish she would’ve left how I fought hard. How even when ingested I was kicking, screaming, and fighting.
The Interviewer: Do you feel you were given no justice?
Imogene: In some ways yes and in some ways no. I don’t want to really go into it. There’s nothing that can be done now.
The Interviewer: Since you’re on the other side is there any knowledge you can give us that those still living may not know?
Imogene: There’s a spy among them, but he’ll get his. He’ll flip and ultimately help them.
The Interviewer: Will you say who?
Imogene: I’m not allowed to.
The Interviewer: Is there anything you’d like to say to the remaining Seers, Briar and Dante?
Imogene: Dante’s going to be just fine. I am not allowed to say too much, but without him the world would truly fall apart. Briar is in good hands even though she doesn’t realize it, being possessed by anyone else would destroy her.
The Interviewer: Is there anything you’d like to say to readers or potential readers?
Imogene: I’m gone, I pass in this book. That’s no secret, but what many don’t know is I can now live on because of them. The author’s a bit weird, but she has done good by me by telling my story. If you read it I can live on in your memory and thoughts. I do hope you’ll read it. Please read.
The Interviewer: Is there anything you wish to say perhaps to Margot or Isiah if they read this interview?
Imogene: I am sorry Margot. I did love you and still do. You didn’t have to take me in and you did. You were a mother to me and I never appreciated you. To Isiah, I guess I’d say, I miss and love you.
Margot has gotten to read the interview and it helped her with her mourning. Isiah was too busy to read it.
