Aaaaand it's Saturday again!
I am doing something slightly unusual for the next few weeks. Normally, I talk about the human characters in my novels, but, for a little while, I am going to talk about Rockybado, Dacston and his comrades, and Marty and his best friends. In case you may not know, Rockybado comes from....well....Rockybado; Dacston and his comrades come from The Jazzy Island of Dinosaurs; and Marty and his best friends come from The Magic Video Game.
As I have said before, the plot lines are very similar but very different at the same time. The characters, of course are very different in many ways.
In Rockybado, Rockybado himself is the robot who is King of Texamilio, a supposedly fictitious island near Hawaii. He assumes full power on his throne, but at least one knucklehead, who goes by the name of Claude McSmith, wants Rockybado's position in order to get even with him. Rockybado was valedictorian of his high school class, and Claude was salutatorian of the same class in the same high school. They were once friends until one day when they both had a heated argument about certain laws of physics. Rockybado, of course, won, and Claude has been mad at him ever since. Rockybado is amused when he finds out that Claude is married to a lady named Susan. This lady is not very smart, and she often takes what Claude says literally, especially when they are both trying to devise a plan.
Rockybado is what many would consider a great leader in many ways, and he will never let anyone get in his face about certain problems, including the potential of losing his position to Claude McSmith, which he would never let happen. Rockybado also has two fairy accomplices. One is an actual fairy, and her name is Sparkle. The other accomplice is a frog, whose name is Sassio. They rarely appear in any of the novels, but when they are given orders by Rockybado, they usually take his orders the wrong, but goofy way.
Unfortunately, Claude McSmith is not the only one who wants Rockybado's position. As a matter of fact, a horde of aliens called the Naughty Blue Aliens are also thirty for Rockybado's position as King of Texamilio. The Naughty Blue Aliens hail from the south side of the island of Texamilio, where they all live in their own area called Blue World. The place is really called Dumigal, but some Naughty Blue Aliens live in the neighboring suburb called Benjamilio. The main leaders of the Naughty Blue Aliens include Mildred, the only female Naughty Blue Alien to actually have a leadership position among the horde, Lester, who acts as the bouncer, and Roy, who is the only Naughty Blue Alien actually in want of the throne.
Among Rockybado's best friends include Mr. Cobado, who is almost exactly like Rockybado in terms of his looks and personality. As a matter of fact, Mr. Cobado was in Rockybado's and Claude McSmith's high school class, and Rockybado and Mr. Cobado have been best friends since elementary school. Another friend who hangs around Rockybado and Mr. Cobado a lot is Alfredo Parmesano Tortellini. He is the founder of Tortellini's Pizza Parlor, a popular pizza parlor in all of Texamilio.
Another type of creature that lives in Texamilio include Bobinos, that take the goofy form of a human. Some Bobinos look similar to humans, while others look like personified creatures from children’s books. Many Bobinos resemble puppets in many ways, both by their looks and by how they present themselves. Some also look just like aliens, only they don’t have the same attributes as aliens. As a matter of fact, some Bobinos have been confused for the Naughty Blue Aliens in the past. Other Bobinos look like random objects, such as a hot fudge sundae, a meatloaf, a slice of cheese, and a book. And yet, many other Bobinos look strictly like animals. Despite how different these Bobinos look from each other, they all carry similar personalities in one way or another. They all have at least some sense of humor. Some Bobinos are funnier than others, while a large sum of these weird creatures could be the next best comedians in all of Texamilio.
These are the main characters who live in Texamilio. Next week, I will talk about Dacston, his comrades, and other main characters from Galavanti Island (The Jazzy Island of Dinosaurs).
Also, The Magic Video Game and its sequel, The Tennis Summer, are free on Amazon today and tomorrow, so please check them out!
The Magic Video Game: “Summer of 2006 begins in Valparaiso, Indiana, and two siblings acquire a video game that lets them go to the island of Wakahakai to meet a cool polar bear and his friends, including a forensics science fanatic, an athletic walrus, a crazy penguin, a distinguished snowman, a simplistic Eskimo pig, and a beautiful princess. Together, they must keep Darveda, Nelson, and Hilda from taking part of Winderplassic Estate.”
The Tennis Summer: “It is summer of 2006 in Valparaiso, Indiana, and Levi and his friends have to prepare for the upcoming tennis season as freshmen in high school. With two new boys who join Levi's group of friends, a date gone wrong with his girlfriend, a renovation of his family's garage, and the beginning of many tennis practices, this summer proves to be very eventful.”
Have a great rest of the weekend!
