Flaws. We all have them.
David Beckham, oh god of Armani underwear,
has a thing for skinny blonds with boy haircuts. Nora Roberts head hops like a Mexican Jumping Bean (although since I still adore her books, is this a flaw or just her style?) I fuss at my kids if they bother me when I’m trying to work - and man, will seeing Coraline ever give you a complex about that.
But there are flaws, and then there are Flaws. The heroine of my new book Flawed – coming this summer from Samhain Publishing – has some pretty serious ones of the capital Flaw flavor.
She’s a princess and heir to the kingdom; life should be pretty good, wouldn’t you think? But happenings in her world of Elfish magic and court treachery has her backed into a pretty tight corner. Her magic? Nonexistent. Her birthright? Seems to have deserted her. And even David Beckham up there wouldn’t be doing anything for her – she’s got a serious problem when it comes to sex.
I think I’ll take my short temper over her set of problems.
Have you got any flaws you want to admit to? Or maybe, as gamers are often sarcastically saying, they aren’t really flaws, they’re features!
