Goodbye My Friends : the characters I’ll miss in 2014

As the year ends, I’ve been thinking about beloved shows that ended this year, taking with them characters I’ve come to love.
Some I had only just met and actually were cancelled a few years ago, but I met them this year on Netflix and will miss them in 2014 just the same.
1. Michael Weston: the bogeyman for many a Russian spy on Burn Notice, Mrs. Weston, Sam Axe, Fiona, and Jesse go with him. He always had a plan and pulled his friends from the fire (he’d probably threw them into) every time. I will never think of Miami again without thinking of him. Jeffery Donovan made him real for me.
2. Nate, Sophie, Parker, Eliot, and Hardison, the mastermind, grifter, thief, retrieval specialist, and hacker from Leverage. I discovered this show on Netflix and have been holding off on watching the last two episodes for a month because I don’t want it to be over.
3. Chuck, Casey, Morgan, Sarah, Ellie and Devon(Awesome) of Chuck. Funny, sweet, and full of action, this is another Netlfix find I wish I could go back and watch again for the first time.
4. Ethan Mara and Devon Daughtery, you haven’t met them yet. They’re the hero and heroine of my latest novel, ENTITY MINE, due out Feb/Mar 2014. I had great fun with my shape shifting hero who got stuck in between forms and believed he was a ghost and the lawyer turned medium who fell for him.

What about you? What great characters did you meet in 2013?
Who will you miss?

Which one of these is not like the other?

Find the “unseasonal” item

We put our tree up this weekend. Later, my daughter told me she had put up an “unseasonal” ornament. Can you find it in the picture?

What’s that you say? A prize? How about this–I have a big cast in Chimera 3 (draft title THE LION’S SHARE)  Shapeshifters Connor and his twin Tyler are coerced into robbing a bank. I need names. If you’d like your name or a family member’s name in the book, find the thing that doesn’t belong, then go to my Facebook page, Http://Facebook.com/KarinShahAuthor, like my page and I will number the new likes and randomly select someone to have their name in Chimera 3. If you’ve already liked my fan page, comment here or on my facebook page and I will have a separate drawing for you. So two people have a chance to get their name in a book.:-)

Deadline? Yes, there is a deadline. You have until December 12th at midnight pacific time. Hope you have fun playing the game!
