I Hate You Fuller James by Kelly Anne Blount
Publication Date: March 2, 2020 | Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush | Tour Date: March 2-13, 2020
I hate you, Fuller James.
I hate your floppy hair and your lopsided grin and those laughing blue eyes that always seem to be laughing at me.
I hate that you’re the most popular guy in school and I’m still the girl who sneezed and spit out her retainer on someone at a middle school dance. It’s just such a cliché.
I hate that I’m being forced to tutor you in English and keep it a secret from everyone. Because otherwise it might put our basketball team’s chances at winning State in jeopardy, and even though I hate you, I love basketball.
I hate that it seems like you’re keeping a secret from me…and that the more time we spend together, the less I feel like I’m on solid ground. Because I’m starting to realize there’s so much more to you than meets the eye. Underneath it all, you’re real.
But what I hate most is that I really don’t hate you at all.

Q.: Where do you get the ideas from, when creating personalities for your characters? How to Make Your Characters Believable?
A.: I draw inspiration for my characters from the world around me. It be as simple as observing a couple walking around Target or overhearing someone arguing with a friend over the phone, these moments inspire scenes and dialogue in my books. I also base parts of my characters off of people I know. If I have a friend who gives really great advice or is known for her great laugh, I may incorporate those traits into one of my characters.
Making my characters believable is an incredibly important task. You want your readers to get lost in the world you create, and nothing can pull you out of that quicker than stumbling into a character who isn’t believable! I focus on blending personality traits that I’ve observed in real life when creating my character’s personalities. Also, everyone has flaws, therefore, characters should have flaws too. Imperfections are relatable and personal. Writing a flawed character can lead to readers developing a deeper connection with the story.
Creating personalities for your characters and making your characters believable are monumental tasks that authors should not take lightly. It’s a skill that I’ve studied and plan to continue learning more about as I write more books.
Thank you so much for having me today! It’s an honor to be featured on your blog!
