Review Tales of Ever After 2 for 1

Today as part of the blog tour I’m reviewing not one but two stories from the Fellowship of Fantasy’s latest anthology.  The person who leaves the most comments across the blog tour will receive the chance to read special sneak peaks from several of the authors’ upcoming works! My first review is of Emily Martha […]

My New Favorite Hero

My New Favorite Hero

I have a new favorite hero (sort of). If you’ve followed me on NAF for any length of time, you will know that my ultimate hero is Gilbert Blythe from the Anne of Green Gables series. That has not changed, at all. You just cannot top the handsome, intelligent, earnest, and hard-working Gilbert. He missed […]

Don’t Mess with My Hero

Don’t Mess with My Hero

This post isn’t exactly spec-related, but it is about story. I’m a big fan of all things Anne. That is L.M. Montgomery’s Anne Shirley as in Anne of Green Gables. The book series ranks as one of my all-time favorites. The Canadian television movie 1980s series with Megan Follows and the late Jonathan Crombie is one […]

The True and Better YA Hero

The True and Better YA Hero

Guest Blogger: Shannon Stewart Sometimes I feel like my husband can read my mind. He can ask me, “Do you want McDonald’s or Burger King?” and tell which I want by the expression on my face. It’s nice. Of course, he loses this ability when my thoughts are hormonally irrational or so tangled up in […]

Alain Harper’s “Kryptonite”

Alain Harper’s “Kryptonite”

Guest Blogger: John Wheeler Both of my co-authors, one of my most loyal readers recently, some part of my mind that pays attention to what other authors are doing—all have asked me some variant of the question, “What is Alain Harper’s ‘Kryptonite’?” (Actually, one of my co-authors—devious fellow that he is—has invented some pretty clever […]
