The Stuff Heroes Are Made Of
Posted by mahalia2010
We discuss a lot how we come up with heroes and what makes that male such a crucial part of the story. Sometimes we run into males who exude that effortless humility that make us blink and re-evaluate our first impressions.
I met one tonight while out celebrating three days of feeling really good and breaking in my new fabulous heels for the Erotic Authors Association at the Flamingo Hotel on the Vegas Strip Sept 9-10th. My best girlfriend and I chilled out and danced a bit, her more than I since I’m really not supposed to be walking a lot. I am non compliant lol. While we were relaxing and meeting others, and new potential readers….I kept seeing this man come in and his presence alerted my stare-stalker’… you know not really stalkin’ but sometimes someone catches your attention and you happen t o notice if they are in the vicinity. I have that affliction bad 😛 I When he ‘Spider’ as he calls himself came up to the DJ booth to talk to the DJ I in my normal ‘Hales’ Charm blurted out that I couldn’t take my eyes off of him.
First Impression was he’s a nice looking man. I wasn’t prepared for what came out of his mouth followed by a sincere grin. “Who me? I ain’t nothin’ to look at’ close to what he said if not word for word. Slack Jaw but with my mouth closed since I’m a lady. I simply asked for him to take a picture for my site. He asked what kind of site it was and I said um facebook or my site I’m an author. So I stood next to him and he said “If we’re gonna do this we’re gonna do this right.”
Total Alpha hero moment. Because he has some nice guns and had me tucked right under him for the cheezy moment. I found his modesty refreshing. There’s not enough of that left now a days.
What is the definition of a hero. I’ve often chatted with readers and such and for Makhi’s release we had a great talk about why paranormal is such a great genre.
Today I want to know. What do you do when you run into a local man with the qualities of a great hero in a story?
I know how I think but I can’t tell you cause it’s too easy!
