I just finished Turn of the Story and I loved it. I have lots of questions but only one I need to know the answer to: Is Elliot’s crush, Simon Bae, a reference to the Darkest Powers? — laughingsmilez
I’m so glad you liked it!
… and yeah, it totally was. Nice catch! I love Kelley Armstrong and I love the Darkest Powers, and I love being engaged with and nodding to people writing the books I love, which inform the books I write.
Anthony Trollope once wrote a book with a character name borrowed from William Thackeray as a nod to him, and to make him laugh… and William Thackeray died before it was published. (SUPER SAD.) But Anthony Trollope was like, FOOTNOTE: I’M NOT TAKING IT OUT BECAUSE I LOVED MY FRIEND.
I don’t know why I told you that super sad story. Writers are terrible people. But we have fun. ;)
