*NEW* The Disintegrated House by Nicole Castro

Carter Linsey will never trust anyone ever again. After being betrayed by his wife and committing a felony because of it, Carter starts his life over and concentrates on his successful bar, Levity. He refuses to date or even have meaningless sex, afraid it will lead to yet another lapse in judgment. But when sexy, now grown-up, redhead Alexi Dancic comes back into town and his life, he can’t resist the pull she has on him. When the thin thread of trust Alexi gains is snapped, Carter pushes her away, unwilling to have his world ripped from him- again. Knowing exactly the kind of devastating experiences the big bar owner has endured, Alexi refuses to let him go. But tearing down walls is so much harder than building them up.

Have diverse characters in your novel

Hi there! It’s been a while since I have posted. I am working on my National Novel Writing Month project, The Disintegrated House, and because I am a “pantser” (I don’t outline much), I am constantly finding out new things about my characters. Danny Blacksmith (actor Daniel Henney) is a half Korean, bisexual, spent time in prison, bartender/bouncer. I think that branching out and making your characters have qualities that aren’t generic make for a more interesting story (DUH!). Danny is my main male character’s BFF since they spent time together (no, not in THAT way) in prison. Get wild with your peeps. They can be/do/have done ANYthing. No, really. ANYTHING. Don’t limit yourself in writing strictly with what you have had experience. Characters are like trees- they have their main (trunk) qualities, but they have branches and leaves too. Even different color leaves if you want to get super detailed! Ask questions. Interview. Take things that you may not find appealing and apply them. No one in real life is perfect so your characters shouldn’t be either. Happy writing and reading! ❤

I’m pretty dang fortunate…

I'm pretty dang fortunate...

How many people can say that they are in the thank yous of their favorite band’s debut album? … can text their favorite singer/guitarist/merch bro? Can jump in the van and have great conversations about life after the show? Eat dinner with the band before and after the show? Always get their name mentioned on stage? Are trusted enough to have things mailed to their house because of tour timing? I’m so lucky that I can have these experiences and am eternally grateful for them. I’m not bragging, it’s just crazy. How is this my life? I don’t care- I love it! I’m not a groupie, I’m a super fan. These guys are like my brothers and I want the best for them. I’ve seen them grow so much in the past several years. I just love them to pieces! What a fantastic night! https://www.facebook.com/conditionsband
