Growing Up Geek: Melissa Grey

Originally posted at engadget

Sometimes, the formative moments in your life happen when you least expect them. One such moment occurred for me in 1997, as I watched my brother pilot Cloud Strife through the ruins of the Forgotten City while Aerith Gainsborough clasped her hands in prayer. We’d taken turns playing Final Fantasy VII on and off for days. He bemoaned my stubborn inclusion of Red XIII in every party and we both developed gambling habits at the Gold Saucer on the outskirts of North...

Five Female Characters of Under-appreciated Strength

Originally posted at Tor.com

Since my novel The Girl at Midnight came out in April, I’ve noticed one question—or one of its many permutations–popping up in quite a few interviews: How did you approach writing a strong female character? My answer tends to focus on Echo, the book’s primary point-of-view character (there are several). She’s only seventeen but she’s lived a hard life. It’s calcified her in some ways and softened her in others. I’ve got my routine answer down at this point, but e...

etrujii:

@yooleestruck - for supporting me and my artwork, and assisting me with replacement of my graphics tablet. I appreciate you and your support more than you know. Quick sketch of Atlas and MC. And all the concern I have in thinking that Atlas is convinced he doesn’t deserve her.

When you’re waiting for Skate Canada to continue and have waaaaay too much fun with the Prisma app. I’m not the biggest fan of selfies so I’ll probably take this down but, hey. Sometimes Atlas is just a Fucking Mood, y’all.

PS more people should enter the IG Halloween costume lovestruck has going on. Seriously so many of the characters wear normal clothes, go through your closet and have fun! I got to make use of a KY fish and wildlife patch I earned in fifth grade for this n...

What kind of music does atlas listen too and does he have a favorite song

That is a GOOD QUESTION. Honestly, I’m more interested in hearing from Starship fans on this. What do you think Atlas listens to, y’all?

I just finished “The Girl at Midnight” trilogy and I was wondering if you’ve ever thought of continuing the series? It’s just so wonderful and written so well. I fell absolutely in love with Caius and Echo together.

I’d love to write more of Caius and Echo but the decision to continue a series falls with the publisher not the writer. I’m grateful Random House gave me three books to explore Echo’s story (which is honestly more than I thought I’d get as a debut author) and I really did try to make it the best trilogy I could possibly write. I’m so glad you loved the books and these characters. It means the world to hear that!

I have just finished A Savage Dawn and I would like to ask you to continue the series. Please don't let it end so ambiguously with Caius and Echo. If you aren't going to continue the story, then can you please tell me why not?

I’m glad you enjoyed the book! But alas, publishing is a business first and foremost. The Girl at Midnight series was sold to my North American publisher as a trilogy and that’s what it’ll remain. The types of trilogies that get extended into longer series are ones that have sold bajillions of copies, making it profitable for publishers to continue them past three books. The decision to continue a series is at the discretion of the publisher, not the writer. I love Echo and her motley crew mo...
