Character Interview – Karma By Donna Augustine (@DonnAugustine)
Today Karma from Donna Augustine’s Karma stopped by for an interview. There’s also a giveaway to celebrate. Check out the blurb:
People say karma’s a…well, you know. Personally, I don’t think I’m that bad. It’s not like I wanted this job. I wasn’t even in my right mind when I accepted it. Now, I’m surrounded by crazy coworkers like Lady Luck, who’s a bit of a tramp, and Murphy’s Law, who’s a bumbling oaf.
But the worst is Fate. He’s got a problem with transfers like myself and I have to see him constantly. It’s unavoidable, since we’re hunting the same man, my murderer.
Available at Amazon!
I was immediately drawn into the story and once I started I couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. ~ Review by BookGirl
Karma: Who are you? Are you supposed to be in our office? I don’t recognize you. Bad things happen when you aren’t Universe approved.
Interviewer: Harold sent me. I’m here to interview you.
Karma: Harold? My office manager? This should be a good one. Where’s your stack of papers?
Interviewer: I feel like I’m picking up on some hostility. Do you have a problem with Harold?
Karma: I don’t have a problem. He does. He might be the most high strung, irritating—
Interviewer: This is going to be put in your work file so maybe we shouldn’t talk about Harold. Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?
Karma: Really not that much to say. I was an attorney in my human life until I was killed way too young and got tricked into working at this dump for Unknown Forces of the Universe. Now I’m Karma. I make sure people get what’s coming to them, good and bad. Well, unfortunately for them, it’s usually bad.
Interviewer: What about your other coworkers? Do you get along with them?
Karma: Yes, most of them. There are the Jinxes who can be a bit of a pain and Murphy’s Law who has his rough edges. Lady Luck is a close friend. Overall, they’re a good group. The only one I watch out for is Cupid. He’s got his own agenda.
Interviewer: I noticed that you didn’t mention Fate. I’ve heard rumors of something going on between you two. Is that true?
Karma: My coworkers have the biggest mouths. Is there anything left to say? They probably told you everything, already.
Interviewer: It wasn’t anything in particular. Just whispers.
Karma: Well, we’re only friends. Yes, there have been a few slips, but it was nothing. I’m not looking for a relationship. He’s got some good points once in a while but that is a far leap from being compatible.
Interviewer: What do you mean slips?
Karma: It was nothing. Just something that happened. It’s not like I’d meant to. Cupid couldn’t mind his own business and there Fate was and it’s not like he’s hard on the eyes.
Interviewer: So you find Fate attractive?
Karma: That’s not what I meant. I mean anyone would but I don’t like him. You know, I’d rather not discuss him at all if you don’t mind.
Interviewer: Sure. How’s Paddy?
Karma: How do you know about Paddy? Wow, look at the time. I’ve really got to get going.
