Reth: Guest Post by Natalie Whipple

Or really rather less of a guest post and more of a guest COMPLETE AND TOTAL AWESOMENESS, by the lovely and talented Natalie Whipple. Besides being my unbiological twin and a fabulous YA writer represented by Nathan Bransford, Natalie is also a talented artist. She created Reth, Evie's faerie ex-boyfriend...ish...thing. He's one of my favorite characters to write, and seeing him on my screen, well, let's just say there's a little more drooling and googly-eyed grins than are normally present in my household.


"Everything about Reth was golden, except his laugh. That had always been silver."



Ooh la la! Natalie will also be posting this picture on her blog today, in case of technical difficulties or if my blog doesn't let you zoom in. Because admit it, you totally want to zoom in.

Truth be told, I want to zoom right in and steal his hair.

Everything I hear about Paranormalcy sets my hairs on end, fires them from my skin pores like javelins. With a hairdo like Reths, I could take a realistic stab at winning Britain's Got Talent.

Talking of which — great illo, Natalie.

Natalie makes me want ot jump into SPORK, and 5 Words and now PARANORMALCY, just so I can live with these characters every day.

Hmm.... I like it. It definitely captures his look and the intrigue... captivation... but the undercurrents of everything else is so there. Awesome!

Mary Clare said...
