Character Interview: Madison from Madison's Song by Christine Amsden







Title: Madison's Song
Author: Christine Amsden
Publisher: Twilight Times Books
Pages: 275
Genre: Paranormal Fiction
Format: Kindle

Her voice is enchanting; his soul is black...

Madison Carter has been terrified of Scott Lee since the night he saved her from an evil sorcerer – then melted into a man-eating monster before her eyes. The werewolf is a slave to the moon, but Madison's nightmares are not.

Despite her fears, when Madison's brother, Clinton, is bitten by a werewolf, she knows there is only one man who can help. A man who frightens her all the more because even in her nightmares, he also thrills her.

Together for the first time since that terrible night, Scott and Madison drive to Clinton's home only to discover that he's vanished! Frantic now, Madison must overcome her fears and uncover hidden strengths if she hopes to save him. And she's not the only one fighting inner demons. Scott's are literal, and they have him convinced that he will never deserve the woman he loves.

Praise for Cassie Scot: ParaNormal Detective "In this entertaining series opener, Amsden (The Immortality Virus) introduces readers to the eponymous Cassie, a decidedly mundane member of a magical family. ...Readers will enjoy Cassie's fish-out-of-water struggles as she fights magical threats with little more than experience and bravado." ~ Publishers Weekly

Thank you so for this interview, Madison. Now that the book has been written, do you feel you were fairly portrayed or would you like to set anything straight with your readers?

I guess it was fair. I mean, the chapters I told were definitely fair. Scott seems to think I'm prettier than I am. And braver. Not sure I want to correct it, but  it seems so weird to see yourself through someone else's eyes.

What do you believe is your strongest trait?

I'm really good at music. My voice is literally enchanting – I used to feel bad about it but lately I think it's kind of cool.

Worst trait?

I'm shy. I still find it hard to stand up for myself. Scott told me the other day that it was great I could stand up for others, but it would be nice if I would stand up for myself.

Do you have a love interest in the book?

Scott. He scared me for a long time because, well, he's scary! He's a werewolf. (I'm not sure if I'm supposed to tell you that, but most people around here seem to know it.) Anyway, he saved my life a couple of years ago but then he turned into this monster and I thought he was going ot eat my alive! Longest night of my life. I didn't go near him again for two years, when my little brother told me a werewolf bit him and I had no choice.

But when I started to get to know Scott I realized that he's pretty amazing. Too good for me (but don't tell him I said that). The best thing? He loyal. I've been betrayed by a few people in my life, but I honestly don't think Scott ever would.

At what point of the book did you start getting nervous about the way it was going to turn out?

Page 1!!!! An evil sorcerer had me tied up and was trying to take my soul!

If you could trade places with one of the other characters in the book, which character would you really not want to be and why?

My brother, Clinton, the one who was bitten by a werewolf. I can't tell you why, though, because it would be a spoiler. Just trust me on this one.

How do you feel about the ending of the book without giving too much away?

Good. I mean, mostly good. I guess nothing comes without a cost, right? I'm still not sure how I'm going to deal with … well, you said spoilers so I'll just stop there. But I am happier than I was at the beginning.

What words of wisdom would you give your author if she decided to write another book with you in it?

Oh, please don't! I don't think I can handle it. I mean, I guess if you want to write another story about Cassie or one about Kaitlin, I'll show up, but I've had enough. I'm really just a music teacher, not a hero.

Thank you for this interview. Will we be seeing more of you in the future?


You're welcome. And yes, I am told that I'll be in Kaitlin's Tale, which is coming out next year. But just briefly (whew). I'm also in the four-volume Cassie Scot series, which take place before Madison's Song
