Blog Tour: Revealing Hamilton by Sarah J. Carr - Character Interview

Hey guys! Welcome to today's blog tour. Its a little late, I apologise, I had an exam today. SO yes, Revealing Hamilton is a science-fic novel released by Ruby Lioness Press on the 1st of June. This is the first book in the JackRabbit7 series.

Revealing Hamilton by Sarah J. Carr

A conversation with a stranger changes Amelia Hamilton's life forever. When she learns her grandfather faked his own death, normalcy slips from Amelia's grasp. To make matters worse, he is coming for her in less than seven days. What she hasn't determined is why.

Amelia's grandfather, Marius Benedict, once headed The Physician Coalition, an elite group of doctors who threw the Hippocratic Oath out the window. Years ago, they used a low-risk medical research study as a front for their experiments. Without their consent, innocents were injected with JackRabbit7, a hazardous substance used to alter their DNA. The victims were left with less-than-desirable super-human powers or excruciating death. Years after he disbanded the group, Marius has a new plan and is reforming The Coalition.

Max, a mysterious stranger from the Insurance Agency, offers to help keep Amelia safe. He introduces The Agency as an underground government organization that contains and eliminates those who intend to harm the world. To protect The Agency, the truth of their activities are concealed and replaced with sugar-coated stories in the media.

Over the course of the next week, Amelia has to accept the truth and learn who can be trusted. At midnight on her 23rd birthday, a contract between The Coalition and The Insurance Agency will expire, giving Marius full rein to approach his granddaughter and finish the project he started with her so many years ago.

Sarah J. Carr

Sarah Carr is a novelist who can be found most evenings with a cup of tea in-hand and her imagination racing from plot to plot. When away from her work, part of her mind is constantly brainstorming her next story and she always has writing paraphernalia within reach.

She wrote stories as a child, but became more serious about her passion during her twenties. In her spare time, she likes to read, splash in mud puddles, smell bookstores and eat Honeycrisp apples. Yearly, she participates in NaNoWriMo and has mentored others through the program. Due to her dedication to National Novel Writing Month, she is part of an amazing writing group.

Born and raised in Washington State, Sarah still resides in the area. Her life is richly filled with her supportive, yet swashbuckling husband and their golden Nugget.

And now, let's welcome Amelia Hamilton, the main character of the book, to have a little chat with us! :)

Victoria: Hi Amelia! Welcome to the blog. Let’s start with something big. Can you tell me your first memory?

Amelia: Wow, you jump right into the heavy topics. **long pause** Well, I was three or four years old and it was a spring afternoon. The house was in disarray and I couldn’t find my parents after a nap. **shifts in her seat** My grandfather had this dishtowel and--- I’m really not comfortable talking about this. Can we change topics?

Victoria: Sure. Let’s go back to the basics. What is your full birth name?

Amelia: I suppose that depends on whom you ask. My real name is Amelia Noelle Hamilton. I don’t know the history behind my first or middle name. I assume Noelle is because my birthday is near Christmas. Since I turned 18, my identity has been a problem. I tried to change my name multiple times and it keeps coming back incorrectly from the state. I think it’s a sick game my grandfather plays from the grave.

Victoria: Speaking of your grandfather, tell me about your family.

Amelia: I was an only child and never found my parents after that first memory I explained earlier. Please don’t make me dive back into that topic. My grandfather, Marius Benedict, was in a massive accident and died when I was young. At that time, I was placed into foster care and shuffled from home to home.

Victoria: It sounds like you had a rough childhood. Has that affected your relationships? Are you in a romantic relationship?

Amelia: Romantic? I guess you could call it that. I’ve dated this guy named Connor for a while. We’ve been together for a while and I moved into his condo six months ago.

Victoria: Why are you frowning when you talk about him?

Amelia: He’s been distant lately. I know he’s under a lot of pressure at work, and when he drinks, he---never mind.

Victoria: Sounds like that’s a sore topic and there’s some fear on your face. What are your other fears?

Amelia: I used to fear my grandfather, but he can only haunt my memories now that he’s dead. My current fears are needles and mosquitoes.

Victoria: Who’s your best friend?

Amelia: I have two. The first is Kyra Thomas. She’s been acting odd lately. She has a toddler that keeps her busy so I don’t question it. My other best friend is Donovan Davis. We’ve known each other since elementary school and we work together at Ellie’s. He’s a little kooky, but has a good heart. I’m concerned he wants to be more than friends, but I do my best to not give him false hope.

Victoria: What’s the worst thing that can be done to another person and why?

Amelia: **silence**

Victoria: Is something wrong?

Amelia: This is off the record and don’t ask me to elaborate. The worst act someone can commit is **pause** being restrained on a table and injected with JackRabbit7. It felt like a lit match being thrown into a puddle of gasoline. I was four. You put the puzzle pieces together as to “why”.

Victoria: Since I’m not allowed to ask more about that topic, do you have any pet peeves?

Amelia: I HATE two things. First of all, I hate it when people lie to me. Second of all, I hate it when people answer questions with more questions.

Victoria: My last question is do you believe in superheroes?

Amelia? **smirks** Once upon a time, I thought they were fictitious and limited to comic books and TV; however, if you read my story, you might believe in them, too.

Victoria: Alright! I guess I've taken up enough of your time! Thanks so much for visiting the blog and I wish you all the best:)

So yep, that's about it for today! Go here to check out the other tour stops! You'll find loads of awesome stuff on the other tour sites too! :D
