FFBC Ink by Amanda Sun: Q&A with Amanda Sun

Book Addicts,

Today is all about Q&A with Amanda Sun. The best part? We're just introducing what you can find in the book! 
It's really interesting knowing the point of view of the author towards their book. What inspire them, was it difficult... Those are things we don't usually think after reading the book, we are just focused on the hot badass boys (*wink, wink*) and then... we keep thinking about the gorgeous badass boys. Yep, we have to dream about our fictional boys!
However, not leaving our hot fictional boys behind, we would like to introduce you into Amanda's world. The world of the writer. Some people may think this is an easy task. You have an idea and you start writing, right? Not at all. Well, if you want to make a huge impact in your readers you have to know everything about your story, your settings, the place you're talking about... Not an easy task, right? It may be easy for the authors when words flow without thinking about it, however there's a really hard work behind every book, Book Addicts! Always remember that! That's why we love every single book that comes to our hands. Above all, we appreciate that work.

What do you think are the best qualities of your main characters?

I think Katie’s best quality is her bravery. Here she is without her mom, in a country she doesn’t fully understand, and she’s doing her best to keep moving forward. Even when Yuki gives her the option to speak English, Katie keeps trying to speak Japanese, to push herself and rise to the challenge. She knows there’s more to Tomohiro, too, and won’t let anything stop her from reaching the truth. I also admire that she’s a kindhearted person and a loyal friend who does the right thing simply because it’s right.
For Tomohiro, I think it’s his perseverance. Despite the struggle with his power, he keeps fighting. He doesn’t want to be a monster. He’s living under a dark shadow and yet he wants his life to matter and to belong to him, and he won’t let anything or anyone stop him. I know how hard it can be to keep going when life looks bleak, and Tomo’s courage inspires me- and I hope it inspires you, too!

We would love to keep writing more Q&As, but we don't want to bring some spoilery topic here. So, Book Addicts, you'll have to wait until you have the book to know more about Amanda Sun & Ink.

"You have read about Tomohiro's and Katie's qualities. What do you consider is a good quality for a main character to captivate you and make you fall in love with them and the book?"

Want to know our answer?

We really like that the main characters are strong-minded. No matter what they deal with or how big their problems, they overcome them. They stand up and fight for what they believe or think or desire. That's the reason we are very fond with Katie.

  1. A strong-willed person who would do anything for the people he/she loves.

  2. Someone willing to take charge of a bad situation and try to make it better.

  3. I like my main characters to have minds of their own but to not be either too timid/meek or too arrogant/overbearing. The ability to remain positive in the face of adversity is also an admired characteristic. I also love my main characters to have a sense of humor. :-)
