No matter how well-developed or clever a story might be, readers get far more invested in the characters. What makes one character fully-formed while another falls flat? Author Bill Blume shows how he creates the casts for his stories, such as his “Gidion Keep, Vampire Hunter” series, and how you can use the same techniques to create characters your readers will care about.
Bill Blume discovered his love for the written word while in high school and has been writing ever since. His latest book Gidion’s Blood is now available from Diversion Books. His first novel, Gidion’s Hunt was released in 2013. His short stories have been published in many fantasy anthologies and various ezines. Just like the father figure in his novels, Bill works as a 911 dispatcher and has done so for more than 15 years. Prior to that, he worked as a television news producer and graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
