Have you ever stopped short while writing a scene because you were worried about what fans would think of it?
"I try to stay true to what the character would do in a situation, rather than thinking about how the fans will react. However, in an earlier version of Everneath, one of the main boys in the book did something so wrong that I wasn't sure readers would be able to get past it and root for him again. And I needed readers to be able to forgive him. I ended up taking the scene out, more because in the end I didn't think it was true to his character." - Brodi Ashton, author of Everneath.
"Small Town Sinners was hard to write--I thought a lot about what readers would think. In the end though, I had to think about the characters and how to make their stories true. If you make it as real as you can, readers will respond well, I think." - Melissa Walker, author of Small Town Sinners.
