Maisey Yates Does Freo
Now there’s a headline Maisey Yates probably wasn’t expecting. Maisey talks screwed up heroes, shirtless cowboys and Ryan Gosling. Yeah, you don’t need any more prompting to read the story. But just in case you didn’t read that line – Ryan Gosling – she gives some good advice as well.

Kandy Shepherd (Reinventing Rose), puts backstory on the front foot.
She talks to Jaye Ford (Blood Secret), Isolde Martin (Mistress to the Crown), Sharon Archer (Single Father, Wife and Mother Wanted), Fiona Lowe (Picture Perfect Wedding), CC Coburn (The Cowboy, The Cheat, his Ex-Wife and her Vibrator), Annie West (An Enticing Debt to Pay), Anna Campbell (A Rake’s Midnight Kiss) and Cathleen Ross (Her Demon Prince) about the role and place of backstory and how to wrangle it into shape.
Beware. There is a little letting go and a lot of manipulation.
