Guest and giveaway: Tere Michaels – The Heir Apparent

Thanks so much for having me!

Having the chance to go back and play with The Heir Apparent – and Henry and Archie – was an unexpected gift. All writers have a project they wish they could fix AFTER it was published and this was mine.

Henry is a man in a glass cage; trapped by expectation and emotion. In order to win his father’s approval, he has to accept the mantle of “the Heir Apparent” – the one who will take over when his father is gone. For all that he desires freedom, throwing off this title will mean … Continue reading

Guest with giveaway: Kim Dias – Breakfast at Midnight

Anyone who’s ever spoken to me about my writing for longer than five minutes know how much I struggle with plot. I write character-first, which means I come up with a character or characters and my plot grows from them. I don’t think up a plot and then fit my characters into it. Character-first is my favourite way to write—but it can make my plots awfully difficult to describe (which is why I will forever be grateful … Continue reading

Tour: J. Scott Coatsworth – The Stark Divide

What was your first published work? Tell me a little about it.

Kind of a trick question. I was first published in 1988 as part of a group of teenagers who wrote a book on parents and teens (though by then I was technically twenty) called Raising Each Other. You can still find copies on Amazon.

But my first fiction publication was the story “The Bear at the Bar” in the “A Taste of Honey” anthology from Dreamspinner – … Continue reading
