Gone at Zero Hundred Tour! Guest Post by C.R. Hiatt




Author, C.R. Hiatt has stopped by today with a guest post for the Gone at Zero Hundred blog tour!

THE CREATION OF VILLAINS AND VILLANOUS LOCATIONS
One of the most important things I learned when I wrote my first screenplay: To make a villain truly believable, he/she can’t just be evil for the sake of being evil. Telling a reader, he/she’s insane won’t cut it. Even if it is not crucial to the current story, a writer should hint at back story situations or actions, that might help explain despicable behavior. I don’t think it is necessary to give detailed information in order to prove the case of evil, but without providing certain traits and clues, readers might not buy into the characters.

In Gone at Zero Hundred 00:00 my villains were a group who called themselves, The Privileged Ones, and operated at an underground club called The Devil’s Door which was built inside on old run-down theatre. High-ranking members were tattooed with the face of a devil, and it could only be seen if held under a special ultra-violet light.
I can’t go into details here in this guest post because that would give the plot away, but I can tell you the reader will meet an unusual group, from various walks of life, who banded together and wreaked havoc upon the fictional location of Sutter Beach. When you read the story, the lines of good and evil will be blurred, and you might have trouble distinguishing between the good and the bad, and all for the sake of greed.

Greed is the desire to possess wealth, goods, or objects of value with the intention to keep it for one's self, far beyond the necessities of comfort. The ultimate goal: wealth, status, and power.

The high-ranking members set up a criminal underground enterprise where bored, rich kids could come and play, and drop their money down for their own gratification and pleasure.
It was up to McSwain & Beck to discover what was really going on at the facility, what was so dangerous, that it was causing innocent people to wind up dead.
