Character Profile Sheet for Zek from Gabriella Zielke's ‘The Sound of Creation’


Years ago (and still applies today), the experts were telling fiction writers that in order to really know their main character, they must come up with a character profile sheet for them and definitely applies to all your characters as well.  This is a good practice because once you know all the ins and outs of all your characters, the book flows better and allows the author to get inside the head of each of their characters.

We decided to ask authors if they would like to come up with a character sketch of their main character, throwing in a few unique questions to make it really fun!

Today we have Gabriella Zielke stopping by on her blog tour with a character sketch of her main character, Zek.  Enjoy!

Character Mini-Interview:

Nobody knows I am: from the 7th dimension – at least most humans are unaware

I wish: all souls could ascend the dimensions with less turmoil

The worse part of my life is: having to defend my creations to the Guild

I want to teach my children that: all souls deserve to ascend

The worse advice my father guildmaster gave me is: don’t try to change what is

When I feel sorry for myself I: create a fun little planet full of puppies and play with them

My friends like me because: I’m honest.

My major accomplishment is: Creating Earth

My most humbling experience was: Being told Earth is a failure and I must destroy it.

Inside the Book

Author: Gabriella Zielke
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Genre: Science Fiction

Brilliant and relentless tech CEO Ava Lawson built a system to play the currency market and make her billions. Instead, it begins to play strange music and makes normally level headed people behave irrationally, violently, dangerously.

While on the run from a coup to steal her code, Ava meets an ethereal stranger who seems to know more about her than she does.

The stranger calls himself an apprentice. He pleads for her help to stop what they have started.

“The Sound of Creation is a mind-bending book filled with big questions about our existence. It takes you on a journey disrupted by action scenes and strange characters. You will find yourself floating on dimensions you did not know even existed. This book is a mind game. You have been warned.” ~ George Papa, author of The Manual and The Architect’s typist for The Code
