Virtual Tour ~ Starting New by S.C. Wynne ~ (Author GuestPost + Giveaway)

Virtual Tour ~ Starting New by S.C. Wynne ~ (Author GuestPost + Giveaway)

Title: Starting New
Author: S.C. Wynne
Pages: 196
Publisher: Riptide

Life hasn’t been good to Francis Murphy. He’s survived twenty-one years of homelessness by hooking and taking handouts where he can find them. When the local shelter is vandalized, he’s forced to seek food at the Grace and Light Church, where he runs into the pastor’s son, Randy.

Randy Wright believes the best in others. He's immediately drawn to Francis, even though Francis is hardened and wary. When Francis is attacked by one of his johns, Randy and his family take him in and offer him temporary work. Randy always thought he was straight, but something about Francis has him yearning for more than just friendship, and realizing he might be bisexual.

Francis is attracted to Randy too, and Randy and his parents say they’ve always believed in gay rights. But talk is cheap. What are the odds that these Christian parents will remain open-minded when it's their own son in a relationship with another man?

I tend to write the minute I get up at six thirty in the morning until seven at night. I’m a tiny bit driven.

I’m very much a panster. When I get a story idea it usually hits me suddenly and I’ll have the first few sentences in my head. After the opening line is written from there the story sort of writes itself for the first few chapters. Once I get a little further in, it becomes more necessary that I slow down and think things through better. But the only time I really do an outline is if the story has any sort of mystery or suspense element. Painful Lessons and Home to Danger definitely had outlines because it was important all the elements lined up and made sense. But sometimes I find the idea of an outline anti-climactic. Maybe even boring.

About S.C. Wynne

S.C. Wynne started writing m/m in 2013 and did look back once. She wanted to say that because it seems everyone's bio says they never looked back and, well, S.C. Wynne is all about the joke. She loves writing m/m, and her characters are usually a little jaded, funny, and ultimately redeemed through love.

S.C loves red wine, margaritas, and Seven and Sevens. Yes, apparently she is incredibly thirsty. She loves the rain and should really live in Seattle, but instead has landed in sunny, sunny, unbelievably sunny California. Writing is the best profession she could have chosen because she's a little bit of a control freak. To sit in her pajamas all day and pound the keys of her laptop, controlling the every thought and emotion of the characters she invents, is a dream come true.

If you'd like to contact S.C. Wynne, she can be found amusing herself on Facebook at all hours of the day, or you can contact her at
