Danielle Ellison, author of THE CRUSH COLLISION, shares a deleted scene

I am a plotter when I write. I really love writing characters, and I usually know them before I know the story because I allow them to drive the story in my outlines. The Crush Collision was no different. This time, I knew Jake really well because I’d met him in the The Sweetheart Sham and knew he’d have his own story next. Haley took a little more time, and I’d actually tried to put her with another love interest first. Because I do write from an outline, I rarely have any deleted scenes from my books. Everything I keep…

Amber Mitchell, Author of WAR OF THE WILTED (Garden of Thorns #2), Talks About Books and Writing (with a giveaway!)

Welcome, Amber! What 5 things should readers know about you? I write fight scenes and kiss scenes almost the same way. They are both about action and feelings and high stakes so I approach them with a similar mindset! When I’m not writing, I make 3D papercut shadowboxes and travel to different comic conventions to sell them. I love nerd culture and participating in conventions is such a wonderful way to foster that. I talk about Scotland… a lot. I recently took a trip to Scotland, fell madly in love, left part of my heart there and am constantly scheming…

Author Liz Flaherty Invites Us to Meet the Protagonists of NICE TO COME HOME TO (with a giveaway!)

On Tour with Prism Book Tours Meeting the Protagonists of Nice to Come Home To Thanks for having me here today! Characters, and the development thereof, are my favorite parts of writing books. They usually come to me pretty fully developed, scars and all, long before I know their stories. This is fun. But then the characters do exactly what everyone else does—they change. When I first met Cass and Luke before finding out what their story was, Luke was a cranky engineer who owned half an orchard he had no emotional investment in. Cass was a victim of life’s slings…

Reading for Inspiration … Authors I Admire By Davina Lacey Author of Love & Alliances I enjoy reading the works of so many authors. It was hard to break this list down to a select few.
