AOTW- Greg X. Graves

Greg X. Graves
About the Author: It all began with a single, massive point, an unfathomable amount of energy contained in a lump the size and texture of a raisin [author's interpretation]. Then the Big Bang banged, spewing chunky pieces of universe all over the rapidly-expanding walls of the universe. Material began coalescing into the first generation of stars, and their death resulted in the birth of heavy elements. In the Sol system, Earth formed from the corpses of those stars.
On Earth, a few pieces of carbon had a cuddle puddle, and life began. Millions of years after that, sex was invented by two adventurous organisms that wanted the cuddle puddle to lead somewhere. Still more years after that, some pioneering organism said “Hey, oxygen in air? Bitchin!” and it climbed out of the sea and onto a piece of rock.
And that’s the story of why Greg has dry skin.
Greg X Graves is a young, angry man who is full of shit ideas. He’s a rebel, baby. You can’t tak…

AOTW- A.M. Harte

A.M. Harte
About the Author: I am an author with many aspirations, amongst which sampling chocolate from every country in the world and finally managing to catch up on my sleep. An avid reader, I’ve been writing fiction far longer than anybody’s been paying attention. I am fascinated by the untapped potential of digital content, particularly when it comes to indie publishing and the online fiction community. 
I am the Editor-in-Chief of 1889 Labs, commissioning projects and just generally ordering people around. I also have volunteered as an editor for Web Fiction Guide and run my own online publishing project, qazyfiction. And just to kill myself a little more, I try to do my bit in helping other authors by running a review blog, quillsandzebras. During the daytime I work at a legal publishers’. I live in London, a city not half as foggy as some seem to think.

Interview with Stephanie Tyler!!

HP: Can you tell us how you came up with the idea of your Hold trilogy? What inspired you to create these three men?

Stephanie Tyler: Jake, Nick and Chris had been with me for a long time – typically, my characters arrive and before I begin writing, I know all their backstory.  So I knew they were brothers by adoption, that they were SEALs.  I just didn’t know their heroines at first.  And I knew how important their stories would be to me and I wanted to wait until I could do their stories justice. 

HP: The Shadow Force series, loosely based off of your Hold trilogy, from the sound of it, it…
