Character Confessions: Damon Kalon complains about author Sarah Lampkin + giveaway

Character Confessions: Damon Kalon

SARAH: First off, I just wanted to say thanks for letting me join you on I Smell Sheep as a guest! I was going to write about my process and how I came up with the Dead Dreamer series, but Damon is standing over my shoulders. With his arms folded, and foot tapping, he’s ready to give me some of his complaints.

All right, Damon. What are you complaining about now?

DAMON: My mother, for one.

SARAH: What about her?
DAMON: You’re demonizing her! The woman is a devout Christian and has never done anything deserving of the reputation Brenna is giving her. She’s worked hard as a single mother to raise me. It’s not fair that you’d just talk bad about her. Or at least, let Brenna talk bad about her.

SARAH: First off, calm your tits. No one said you mom wasn’t a good person…I think. She’s just involved in something a little insidious. She made her choice. Good mother or not, she’s kind of working against the universe here.
DAMON: Put Brenna back in her shell. I’m talking to you, not her. My mom just doesn’t know that what she is doing is bad. Why can’t we tell her the truth and help her? It would be easier than all of this stupid sneaking around.

SARAH: I’ll let you tell Brenna and Aeria that suggestion. You forget, it isn’t just your mother involved in all of this. There are so many others, and she’s leading them. The last thing she is going to do is listen to some freshmen telling her about the secrets of the universe. Even you know that.
DAMON: I can’t argue with that, no. She wouldn’t even listen to me when I tried to tell her I could see the dead.

SARAH: Exactly! My guess is she was trying to keep you as far away from that world as possible. At least until you were older. She does love you. But she’s making some very poor decisions.
DAMON: You can have your way this time, but I have one more bone to pick with you.

SARAH: Let me have it.
DAMON: Why is Brenna mean only to me?

DAMON: Okay. Everyone except Aeria.

SARAH: Brenna has been through a lot. It’s extremely difficult for her to trust anyone. I’ll admit, she’s a little rough around the edges. Dying does tend to do that to you. Something about it makes your natural filter disappear. Brenna says what she thinks fairly often because she can’t physically help it. Think about Wilson! He was just as short-tempered, if not cruel.

If we’re being honest here, she is mean to you for a very specific reason. Technically, she doesn’t know why she’s so mean to you, on a conscious level. Don’t worry. She’ll get over it.
DAMON: What is the reason? Maybe I can tell her, so she can be a little nicer.

SARAH: I wish I could tell you, love. But sadly, I cannot. Some secrets have to be revealed over time. Life can be tricky sometimes. You can’t always get the answers you want right off the bat. You have to live life to discover the answers.
DAMON: That’s cryptic and stupid.
SARAH: Love you too.

DAMON: Then what is the next installment going to be called? At least give me some sort of hint as to what I’m in for.
SARAH: Glad you asked. The next installment of the Dead Dreamer series will be called WAKING DEAD.
DAMON: …Waking? Not Walking?

SARAH: No, no. Not Walking. How is the dead supposed to walk?
DAMON: Seriously?

SARAH: This isn’t a zombie novel! Well…not really. I guess Brenna does call herself a zombie sometimes. But she’s being sarcastic.
DAMON: When is she not sarcastic?

SARAH: Fair. Either way, you’ll have to wait until October for your sophomore year at Nephesburg College to find out what will happen.
DAMON: Considering the title, I’m guessing Maura is going to cause more trouble.

SARAH: Always, love. Always. Now! Get back home. The last thing we need is your mom discovering what you’ve been doing.
DAMON: Yeah, yeah.
