#WickedAfterDark with a Guardian Angel and the Goddess Fate

Find more participants

Welcome back to the third day of the Wicked After Dark Halloween Blog Hop.  I've been asked to take over the blogging duties today for Tammy and Lia. Both are getting ready for Tammy's virtual promotional tour for her new release The Island (Now and Forever 2). Who am I? I'm one of the characters in this series, Daniel Quartermarsh. I'm not just an average character either. I'm a Guardian Angel given the task to watch over my family, friends and a few other charges.

I don't have to do it alone. Thankfully, the Goddess Fate has paired me up with another Guardian also intimately involved with our charges. Michael Hartley is the father of my sister Quinn's heart and soul, Jacob. It's their story that's told in The Island. On November 15th you'll be able to read it for yourselves, but until then, I thought I would give you a bit more background information, fill in more of our back story and give a little more face time to a few characters that seem to take a back seat, but really control just about everything. Today, I'm happy to welcome to Sassy Vixen the Goddess herself, Lady Fate.

Thank you for inviting me here today, Daniel. I just visited with your cousin, Brigid on Tammy's sister blog Behind Closed Doors. She had her hands full with myself and my brother, Lucius!

LOL! I'm sure Brigid can handle him. She's one tough cookie.

Yes, she does appear to be able to put him in his place. Maybe I should have her at our next meeting with Yeshua? That as she's said many times today, is for another story. You wish to ask me about Quinn and Jacob, no?

Sort of. Since humans have free will, how could you have been sure Quinn and Jake would decide to give up everything on the Island for a chance at love in the real world? Aren't you still afraid they will choose the wrong path again?

That's why I put you and Michael in charge of these two. I need you to present the choices they have in front of them, with the consequences of each, so they can decide for themselves. Some may call it influencing them to make a specific choice and that may very well be. But the bottom line here is both of them have to choose the path that leads them to each other, no matter what the cost, in order that their fated destiny can be fulfilled in this lifetime. 

If they choose to stay on the Island and just enjoy whatever time they have together and never go back to Earth?

Then they have to fight to find each other again in the next lifetime and the next until they get it right. This time though, there is a lot more at stake. Each must cross paths with specific people in order for many more destinies to be fulfilled this life cycle. Without Quinn and Jacob in their lives, these other people will also have altered futures. It's a bit complicated at times, but this is how it's always been from the moment time began.

I have to tell you, there were times I didn't think I could watch over some of our charges properly. I didn't know if it would be too hard for me to be with my family since they are still mourning my death. On the other hand, it does give me the chance to still be in their lives, even if they can't always see or hear me. I'm very happy you paired me with Michael. He'd passed on the year before, but had a bit more experience with watching over his family.

The two of you do make a wonderful team. You did a fantastic job protecting Jacob after his accident. It nearly broke my heart not to let Michael be there as well, but that was just something he didn't need to see. It's hard enough to have to see your child broken and hooked up to machines. It meant a lot to him that you were there.

There will be a time I'll need to lean on him when it comes to my family. Knowing that my dad will have to go through all that chemo and still lose that fight has been a bitter pill to swallow. 
(Fate takes both of Daniel's hands into her own.)

It will not be an easy task to watch that, but your father also has another destiny to fulfill, just as you did. With the help of Michael and both of your families, all of you will get through the dark spots ahead. Trust me. There will be many more bright spots for both the Quartermarsh and Hartley clans!

And that will have to be a story for another time and another book in Tammy's Now and Forever series.

  2. Tomorrow Daniel hands the blog over to his partner, Michael Hartley. He's going to give a bit more background on his son, Jacob. Michael also shares with us what it felt like knowing his son would be in a horrible accident and not be able to do anything about it.

    I love character interviews too. I think they give so much more to the story than what actually made the cut. ;)

  3. Love character interviews! I like the way this did address that it would be hard to watch over one's grieving family, which is what first came to my mind on reading the blurb.
