The Smallest Thread of Hope, an interview with Feather Stone #Forbidden

I'm thrilled to be taking part in the tour for this wonderful, wonderful novel. You can click on the graphic below to read my five-star review at Goodreads. For my part of the tour, I asked Feather to answer one question:  If you had to pick one song that best captures the essence of Forbidden, which song would you choose and why? Feather Stone: What an honor to be a guest on the blog of my mentor. Thank you, Nicki. Forbidden required that I unleash my very best writing skill to expose Forbidden’s characters’ unforgiveable worst, deepest sorrow, most twisted truth. Hopelessness permeated the plot. I gave Forbidden’s protagonist characters the smallest thread of hope. Together Captain Sharif and Eliza discovered something that has no form, not bound by rules, and is without corruption. It is more powerful than weapons or armor. It is the power of love. Only through love did Hashim Sharif and Eliza MacKay discover the truth about their past and move be

Now she thought she might understand where it came from. “Afraid you might be replaceable?” she asked. “I would be if I thought it was in any way possible—which it’s not.” “I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree on that.” She looked down at her bottle, swirling it. “Do you want the rest of this? I’m not in a mood to drink tonight.” Hayden shrugged and took the bottle, tilting it for a long pull before he set it next to the empty near his feet. Whe

I Quit! #IWSG

Welcome to the June 2017 edition of IWSG. We're just trucking through the year, eh? I love this month's optional Question: Did you ever say “I quit”? If so, what happened to make you come back to writing? Yes, I did intend to quit writing once. But I wasn't shouting it with a big exclamation point. I was whispering it to myself. It happened just a few months after I discovered my passion for writing fiction - when I'd learned how much time writing takes away from everything else. I had young kids at the time and a thousand-and-one other responsibilities  I told myself I had to stop. That decision made me very, very sad. It didn't feel right, but while I was still trying to convince myself to stop, this song came on the radio. I'd heard the song a hundred times before, but this time every single word zinged straight to my heart. The song was giving me permission to release my inhibitions and write my own story - figuratively as well as literally - r
