Sidekick Saturday 6 (special Friday edition) SNARKY!


 
 
Sidekick Saturday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in this week's type
• Share a picture and information about the character
• Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• Put your link in the Linky thing and comment
This week's type is SNARKY!
Thanks to Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven I have the opportunity to participate in my favorite meme for the final feature of our Soul Walker Book Blitz Hop.
There is still time to enter the awesome Amazon gift card rafflecopter!
Jaclyn's sidekick choice is Grimalkin from
The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. You have to stop by her blog to read the quotes made by this snarky cat. I haven't read the Iron Fey series, but I want to now.

I'm choosing a character from my debut YA paranormal romance novel, Soul Walker. No one does snark better than Anna's cousin, Betsy. The last time I cast Betsy, I chose an angelic looking blond actress (AnnaSophia Robb who starred in Soul Surfer), but my friends vetoed my decision and went with attitude over yellow hair. So picture actress Anna Kendrick with golden curly locks.
Here's a taste of one of my very favorite characters.
 
"I am no longer needed here," Betsy said on a lazy stretch. "I've already beaten Ella into the ground, and you non-talking girl look like no fun at all." 
            
"Introductions are the sort of the thing you want to take care of before the panties come off,"
Betsy said from her coveted recliner.
 
"Betsy, get in here and make Anna another plate of food."
"Fine, but I'm counting it as her birthday present."
Today is the last day Soul Walker is FREE on Amazon! Pick up your copy and get your fill of snark.

    1. I loved her most in 50/50 but she was great in Pitch Perfect. I think she'd make a great Betsy. Thanks for another fun Sidekick Saturday!
