ALTERED Hot Guys: Sam

Wednesday, March 21, 2012
Last entry on the ALTERED Hot Guys posts!

I don't even know where to start with Sam. He was the hardest character for me to get to know, and in some ways, still is. And I think it's because he's the kind of person who will tell you what you want to hear, or need to hear, in order to keep the truth, his more personal answer, to himself. 

Everything Sam does is calculated. He'll think everything through before he does it. He is, in no way, spontaneous, or reckless. And he will be the first person to sacrifice himself if he knows it'll save others, but only people who deserve to be saved. 

Out of the four boys, Sam is the smartest, but he tries never to make that obvious. Again, he keeps all the important things, the details that make him who he is, secret. If he can manage it, that is. 

I am so looking forward to writing ALTERED #2 so I can dive a little more into Sam's past, and his character. I know there are still many things I can uncover about him. And yes, that includes his abs. I can guarantee I will uncover his abs in Book #2. 


1. If you could be any animal, what would you be?

A spotted owl

2.  Let's say you're walking down the street. You're wearing a thick coat. You have a sandwich in your hand and a $20 bill in your pocket and a frail man stops you, begging for some change. Do you give him anything?

I would give him the food and the money.

3. You've won the lottery. What's the first thing you buy?

A house. 

4. What's the one thing you couldn't live without?

Free will

Interviewer's note: Sam's answer to the 1st question was at first an interesting, and rather telling, answer. Upon exiting the interview, it was noted that in the waiting area, on the coffee table, there was a magazine with a spotted owl on the cover. 


That's it for the ALTERED hot guys posts! I hope you all enjoyed reading them as much as I did writing them. Though I suspect, for you and me, it had more to do with the visual aids, than it did the actual text. Amirite?

  1. OMG I CANT WAIT. >>>I can guarantee I will uncover his abs in Book #2.

    1. :D You know if there are hot guys involved, I will find a way to take off their shirt.

  2. I like the secretive characters! In a way Sam kinda reminds me of a guy character I have in my WIP. It seems the more I write, the more I keep learning about him and he surprises me a lot.

    1. Love those kinds of characters! And I'm liking the sound of this WIP of yours. :D

  3. Sam sounds like a fascinating character! Mysterious characters like him are always so fun to read about, since they never fail to keep readers on their toes. (I love never knowing quite what to expect!) LOL at his abs being one of the things you plan to uncover in the sequel. XD

    1. I hope he will be for readers! I do enjoy writing him, even if he IS frustrating at times.

  4. so there will be a #2! OH THANK HEAVENS!! i read #1 and now im dying to read 2! i cried thinking it wouldnt be a series bt there a #2! tht just brigtened my day!

  5. So happy there is a second one !!!!! I hope in the second one it explores Nick's personality and get to know him better and revel why he is so closed off and didnt seem to hope in the basement lab. I just finished Altered and am already dying for more! One of my new favorite books ! And if Cas Sam or Nick were real id be over the moon in love. Sexy guys, adventure, romance, all in a book! My dreams have come true! : )

    1. Hey Anon! So cool to hear you liked ALTERED! Nick's character will definitely be explored more in book 2. I can't wait for everyone to read it!

      Thanks for dropping by!

    I'm so excited~! Must get my hands on another arc! I have the Altered ARC and the Hardcover so naturally I gotta find the second one if I can!!! >3<!

    *sigh* Sam. I don't know I mean. He's so...mysterious and it would just bug me if he were my friend. I would just constantly be trying to help him and he wouldn't like it :(
