I usually reserve this blog for hard core, gratuitous horror stuff under my real name, but “Becky’s Kiss” went live today, my paranormal teen romance story written under the pen name Nicholas Fisher.
At one point this piece was agented and at another it was looked at by Dial, Penguin’s young adult division. I got writing advice from QL Pearce, Tamara Thorne, Ken Bingham, Claire Evans, and agent Cherry Weiner, in other words, the base tale had potential and I did a lot of work on it with help from the very best in the industry. Altogether, it is one of my best works, an exploratory piece with difficult timelines and “world rules” to navigate. It is also my first piece to have a happy ending type of a feel, and while this is not the way I usually would go, I wrote what the story demanded.
Yo. Becky throws 90!!
