He sounds like an interesting character, and I'd love to know the details of him not being human.
oh man, i already love him! Also, daym, he's hot. I enoy me the blondes.I really can't wait to read your book!
Honestly from that picture I thought you were talking to Ellen Degeneres.
Sounds like an interesting character . . .
so interesting. He's not human? what is he???
Despite the fact he murders people - that's devotion!
An alien hockey player who is best friends with an assassin...what's not to love! Great character. Truly.
Sounds interesting. I wonder if all hockey players are aliens? Sometimes I think so :)
Fun interview Michael. I think you have a creative MC--makes me want to go watch some puck.
Hey, that is one cool interview.
Sounds like an interesting character!
So cool Michael. "That I'm human." Uh-yeah! That caught my attention!
Jordan's the man. I didn't know he was such a stance on who he was though. Figured he was more of a go-for-it-and-ask-questions-later type of guy. Good to know him a little better, though.
Hey, you won!http://www.thinkingthelions.com/2012/02/now-to-really-actually-announce-winner.html
Um, he sounds awesome! Marking TBR right now! Dude. :)
A non-human who wants to play hockey? You totally played to my Canadian side. Ha!
That guy does look a bit like Ellen.Your ability to convey lots of information in very few words has me in awe. I think I used my 250 words up talking about how unfair it was to limit me to 250 words.As usual, "Slipstream" continues to amaze me and make me anxious to read it. It's truly the Prometheus of sci-fi books, or the "Next Album from Slow Club" of sci-fi books, if you were more an audiophile. Or "the McRib of sci-fi books," for those of you (like me) who like rib-shaped "meat." Or the "Slipstream of sci-fi books," if you want be meta.And who doesn't want to be meta?
What position does he play?
Michael, Jordan sounds amazing! A non-human trying to get back to earth to play hockey. And a best friend who is a hit man!? How cool is that! Thanks for entering :)
He is a man of few words, but the words he says are very interesting. I am intrigued by the fact that he seems to have human emotions, and yet he isn't human. Excellent stuff!
Sounds so good. Love that his best friend murders people for money and that the mc acknowledges the character flaw and loves him anyway.
He sounds like a devoted friend. I like the voice in this interview.
He sounds intriguing. Make it back to earth? Adding to read :)
That is not a normal kid. Maybe he should sit on a couch more ;)
Nice! Great pic, too!
@Pagel: Ellen is so beautiful.
Of all things why hockey? LOLHe sounds very intriguing, I want to learn more about this "dangerous" inhuman boy.
How dare you call Canadians non-human!Sounds like an intriguing storyline - killing for money and a non-human hockey player afraid of the dark...
Much food for thought here.
The hockey answer threw me at the end. Didn't see that coming at all. Now I need to know why he wants that more than anything else.
The interview format for your character is a brilliant idea... I should have been more aware.
so he's the opposite of a vampire.love the pic, i need one. visual is more real.good luck w/his dream, but i bet he doesnt need luck!great interview!
Love the "when I make it back to Earth."! He's been going on talking about average things like trying out for hockey and he's not even on the planet, awesome!
A lot of writers are writing characters that are not human with the same personality and I thought this would be another one of the same, but he likes hockey! That totally threw me and I liked it.
I love the "human" answer. Intriguing! I've added your book to Goodreads and to my recent YA SF survey of books! (up to 175 books now.) Sounds like a great concept - I haven't found any other YA books that deal with a parallel world yet.
Great character interview. Short and to the point, just like Jordan's character in the book.Loved the picture too :).........dhole
I have loved people who have done heinous things. I get that. He sounds like an interesting character.
Great interview... just received your book...woohoo... can't wait to find out more about Jordan now:)
Love how you bordered your interview. Your character sounds fascinating.
Your character did a great interview! Cheers!P.S. I was bummed that the Pats didn't win yesterday but it was a valiant effort.
Any character who likes to live dangerously has got my attention.
Fun character interview. "That I'm human." Definitely piques my interest! Can't wait to read the book. :D
He looks human enough--which makes it very intriguing that he isn't. And the answer to the redeeming quality question was striking.
Love the sound of this guy and his story! The answer to the last question amused me for some reason :D
Man...not human and wants to play hockey...really interesting combination.
Did not see that last answer coming! Such a twist! He's very interesting, I really like the tone I was getting.
I'm getting this book for my birthday :-)
Jordan is YUMMY!
Oooh intriguing. Not human, huh? I'd love to know what he really is.
OK ya got me. TBR now.
Interesting interview, nice to meet you!
Jordan sounds like someone that would be fun to hang out with. Even if he;s not human. Thanks for sharing him with us!
Wow not human huh? and he skates? I'd love to try skating on his home planet!
This characetr sounds very real. Great answers.
