3 Character Bucket List: Lisa Gail Green and Gabe from The Binding Stone

Today, our post is from Lisa Gail Green. She's a contributor here at Adventures in YA Publishing, and she is also a permanent mentor on the First Five Pages Workshop. In addition to that, she blogs over at Paranormal Point of View.


First a bit about the book:

"I dream of Lisa Gail Green! The Binding Stone is magical in so many ways. My Djinn asks for my third wish? The sequel, of course!" - NYT bestselling author Nancy Holder

"Genies like you’ve never seen them, THE BINDING STONE is a wild ride of treachery and deception. For my first wish, I’d like a sequel, please." - PERSONAL DEMONS author Lisa Desrochers

Tricked into slavery by the man she loved, the Djinni Leela has an eternity to regret her choices.

Awakened in the prison of her adolescent body, she finds a new master in possession of the opal that binds her. But seventeen-year-old Jered is unlike any she’s seen. His kindness makes Leela yearn to trust again, to allow herself a glimmer of hope.

Could Jered be strong enough to free her from the curse of the Binding Stone?

Most of my character interviews so far have been with Leela and Jered. It’s understandable because they are the main character and “love” interest. But I thought, why not give Gabe a chance to shine? He deserves it. He’s been Jered’s best friend for years after all.

Gabe, what do you have to say?

Seriously? I mean I appreciate the opportunity and all, but Jered’s the one who got the hot genie – uh, Djinni – sorry, Leela. Not that I’m bitter. I still get to do some uber cool sh- I mean stuff. *fidgets in seat* *adjusts clip on tie*

So. Bucket list.

1. Find a beautiful girl who’s really into me.

2. Be a hero.

3. Fly.

I guess in the grand scheme of things, if I’m gonna kick the proverbial bucket, I want to go out in a memorable way. So, yeah, definitely number two.

Thanks, Gabe! Good luck with that.
