Please welcome today's special guests Percone of Earth Blend and paranormal author Lori Pescatore!
Lori: Hello and welcome. My name is Lori Pescatore and I am the Author of Human Blend and the newly released Earth Blend. I have with me today one of my characters from the books. He has graciously offered to sit down with me for an interview and talk about the new book. Percone, welcome, thanks for coming.
Percone: You make it sound like I actually wanted to do this.
Lori: Don't you?
Percone: Why would I want to spend time talking to you? You're a human. The people reading this are human. I hate humans.
Lori: Why do you hate us so much?
Percone: Isn't it obvious? You and your kind have polluted this Earth for far too long. You, as an Author, have killed trees to publish your work. The only good thing that has happened is with this e-book thing.
Lori: For those of you who do not know it, Percone is an Earthling. A creature created by the Earth to protect itself from the damage we humans have caused. Percone, I understand why you are upset, but I think the humans have taken quite a stand recently in trying to be more green. Does that not count for something?
Percone: Too little, too late. You are trying to put a band-aid on a wound that is seeping life from the abrasions caused by man.
Lori: Okay, I think we are getting off topic here. We can debate this another time. Let's talk about the book. You were first introduced at the end of Human Blend. Do we get to know you more in Earth Blend?
Percone: At least this time I get a whole chapter devoted to me.
Lori: And you are also in the book in a lot of other chapters as well.
Percone: Not enough.
Lori: Tell us about your Earthling abilities.
Percone: I'm Mother Nature. I can control the elements, although I'm not supposed to unless I am helping save the Earth.
Lori: Something tells me you do not always follow those rules.
Percone: Rules are meant to be broken.
Lori: How do you think people will react to Earth Blend?
Percone: I don't really care.
Lori: Percone, we agreed you would be nice and do this.
Percone: You threatened to kill me off if I didn't do it. I'm preserving face time.
Lori: Should I get someone else to do it? Maybe Eli?
Percone: You would, wouldn't you? You favor him just like Suron.
Lori: Suron is the leader of the Earthlings, correct?
Percone: More like a spokesperson. He is the voice of our Mother Tree.
Lori: I know the first six chapters are actually a prequel to Human Blend. The history of your people is explained.
Percone: Yes, I did like that part. We get to hear how those Blends came to be as well.
Lori: The Blends being part human, part something else.
Percone: I tolerate them more because they are not fully human. We have enough of those. Can we be done?
Lori: One last question... Why don't you wear clothes?
Percone: Why anyone wears those itchy, scratchy things is beyond me. Mother made us this way.
Lori: Some of the Earthlings wear clothes.
Percone: Only the stupid ones.
Lori: I've seen you interact with humans.
Percone: For purely nefarious reasons, I assure you. I thought you said one more question.
Lori: I did not ask any. I only made statements and you responded.
Percone: (mumbling something)
Lori: What was that?
Percone: You can't print what I said and that was another question, I'm done.
Lori: Okay, fine. Is there anything else you want to say before you go?
Percone: Save a tree, buy an e-book.
Lori: Thanks Percone.
