Today I have the immense pleasure of introducing Author Rewan Tremethick today as he discusses his new release, Fallen on Good Times (being release the day after this post is live!).
When Fallen on Good Times is released on the 31st of May, you’ll get to meet an array of different characters. Each has their quirks and their flaws, and I hope that they all fit together nicely, and that you find yourself warming to them. It is, after all, the characters that really draw us in to a story or a world. We feel that we have become part of the gang, that we have a unique group of friends, held together by the tightest bonds imaginable – those of adversity and determination, success and failure, tragedy and miracle.
So, without further ado (whatever ado is), here are a few of the people you’ll meet when you enter the city of Pilgrim’s Wane.
Laslo may not be the world’s greatest detective but he does at one talent. Unfortunately that talent is getting caught right in the middle of the wrong sorts of things. Laslo is close to broke and fed up of having to risk his life on a daily basis just to make a living. The truth gives him nightmares, but many of his friends just think he’s crazy. Laslo only wants three things from life: safety, an easy job, and to win back the affections of his ex-girlfriend Kitty.
Once Laslo’s long-suffering girlfriend, Kitty finally realised she had no choice but to end things. She doesn’t know what it is that Laslo has been keeping from her, but she knows it must be pretty big. She’s determined to get on with her life, and not waste time pining after their lost relationship. She wants to forget about Laslo, but this is made impossible when dangerous developments in his latest case mean they are thrown together again.
Rita is one of Laslo’s closest friends. She is a journalist with amazing mental capacities, yet she knows nothing of the dangerous world in which Laslo walks. She puts up with his seemingly deluded comments, and is often the first person he turns to when he needs advice, guidance or information for a case. Rita doesn’t understand why Laslo doesn’t quit his job if it gets him down all the time. But then again, she doesn’t realise that in Laslo’s line of work you don’t leave: you escape.
When you spend your whole life being surrounded by dead people you tend to take it for granted. So when Misty Joe was knocked over by a bus one day and woke up surrounded by ghosts, he didn’t notice a difference. Several years later this Spiritualist Medium has still yet to realise the fact that he himself is dead. His status as a spirit allows him to communicate with the other side much more easily, and he is often a great source of information for Laslo, particularly when there is a murder victim who needs talking to.
Darius is a successful and wealthy investor with an almost endless supply of good luck. Almost, that is, because the murder of his business partner by the Pottelli crime family has certainly put an end to his lucky streak. With the mob going to extreme lengths to draw Darius’s attention to the money they keep paying into his bank account, it’s obvious he’s vital to their future plans. Not wanting to sit by and wait for them to start calling in favours, Darius decides to get some answers. And when you’re in a desperate and dangerous situation, you turn to someone equally desperate.
Adamar is the head of the biggest crime family in Pilgrim’s Wane. His fearsome size and strength are rivalled only by his intelligence and ambition. He has an army of paranormal horrors at his disposal – werewolves, vampires, and ghostly hitman to name but a few – however Adamar’s real threat lies in his master plan for the city. And when Laslo discovers what it is, he’s going to realise that the line separating right and wrong isn’t always so easy to find.
Fairy tales are warnings. Legend is history. Monsters are real.
Paranormal detective Laslo Kane learned this truth the hard way. He’s had enough of the supernatural trying to kill him, but his latest job offer could provide him with a way out. A desperate investor has come to him for help investigating the murder of his business partner, and the money he is offering could change Laslo’s life forever.
It quickly becomes apparent that the killing is just one of several and that they are all linked. Laslo must follow the trail, even though he knows exactly where it ends: the mob.
