Tess Bowery – Rite of Summer Interview and Contest

VBT_TourBanner_RiteOfSummerWhat is the most difficult thing about writing?  What do you do to help make that easier? 

For me, it’s very much about getting and keeping my focus. I always have three or four things going on at once, be it research, fiction or non-fiction writing, and a limited amount of time in my day, so being able to drop right in to where I left off is absolutely key to staying on track.

My trick … Continue reading

Laura Harner – Cliff’s Edge Tour and contest

CliffsEdge_1600x2400

We ask: What do you think of Navy attitudes towards LGBT today? 

Thanks for having me here on tour today, I appreciate invitation.

You’ve asked an interesting question. I was in the Navy for 20 years, and certainly saw changes, but never more than when Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was first enacted. It’s funny how that policy turned into a bad thing in it’s final years, because honestly, when President Clinton first signed it, that was a HUGE shift … Continue reading

If someone from your past who had bullied/hurt you showed up now with a changed demeanor, what would you do?

You mean after I punched them in the face?  No, seriously I am not the type to punch anybody, but I do know that if one of my bullies from school turned up in my life now, I would be super cautious.  It is very hard to trust someone that has hurt you before, and I … Continue reading

Interview and contest: Lily Velden – Heart Knot Mine

Heart Knot Mine features teachers in an exchange program. Have you ever considered an exchange? Where would be your ideal place?

Funny you should ask! More moons ago than I care to admit to, when I was studying for my Fine Arts degree, I was offered a scholarship to go for one semester to a British University. Sadly, at that time, I had to decline the scholarship as I was a single mum with three young children.

It was that scholarship offer, however, that did inform me on universities/colleges around the world that formed partnership programs. From what I learned, … Continue reading

Moment of Clarity hires

Kissing Scenes

There’s no doubt about it—kissing scenes are some of my favorite scenes to write. In most books, the first kiss is my favorite. I love first kisses. I love them in real life and I absolutely adore writing them. There’s so much tension and longing and anticipation. Sigh. There’s not a whole lot that’s better than a good first kiss.

Or is there?

What about a long awaited kiss that for one reason or … Continue reading
