This morning, a colleague asked me this:
So, you’re an avid reader. Which character in a book impressed you most this year?
I encountered many great characters (as usual), my spontaneous answer to this question (drum rolls, please!):
Lisa is a cop, she is a robot. She is incredible. ❤
You’ll find her in C. S. Boyack’s awesome book ‘Wild Concept’ and on his blog http://coldhandboyack.wordpress.com/.
Be ready to read my review in a few days. I’m just reading it for the second (and definitely not the last) time. 😀

I’ve already bought this book and it’s sitting on my Kindle right now, waiting to be read. 😀 Definitely coming up next in my TBR – so many books, so little time, but if Lisa is that impressive then there’s no way I can postpone reading about her any longer!
Lisa is adorable. There are some hilarious moments. 😀
And I love how she develops. Lisa will be a guest in one of my upcoming short stories. Afterwards, there will be an interview with her on this blog.
Have fun reading, Topaz!
Lisa and I thank you for having faith in us.
What a great idea for a blog post.
Thank you very much, Rosie. The second I told my colleague the answer – I knew I had to share it here as well…
Boyack has a great blog, as well. All his books are on my TBR list. He has an awesome imagination and tells a good story.
Thank you so much for that.
Craig is a great writer. And Lisa is awesome. If he didn’t write his own Lisa fan fiction – I’d do it right away.
I give you permission. I’ve loaned out the raven of Doubt before, so why not. (to S.K. Nicholls)
Reblogged this on Entertaining Stories and commented:
Check this out Science Fiction fans. Karen reads a ton of books, and is very insightful. She chose Lisa Burton as the character who impressed her the most in 2014. I have a theory Lisa will be talking about this on my blog this weekend.
Thank you. I feel very honoured.
Holy Cow! I feel like I’ve won a prize. I’m going to reblog this. Thank you so much.
Well, the question came right out of the blue – the answer was spontaneous. And thanks for letting her be my guest.
She will help me solve a case (inasmallcompass) and be interviewed about it (mytrainofthoughtson) – if it is all right with her and with you.
Sure! I can’t wait to read it, and promise some reblogs. Give me advanced warning, and I’ll give you a lead in at my blog. You have my email address so we don’t spoil it for your followers.
Thanks! This is awesome! I’ll start this operation right after my review.
Have a fab weekend!
You too. It sounds like fun.
That’s a really interesting question and one that makes me think back to what I’ve read. Your question is also interesting in that fictional characters could have an influence on non-fictional lives. For me, so far, it has been Jodi in The Silent Wife.
The longer I think about this question, the more interesting it becomes. There are so many outstanding characters in the books and/or stories we read. The most impressive ones do not have to be the heroes, they may be secondary characters and still be most important to us.
As in real life! ❤
