How I Made Fiona Robyn Cry

On her blog, Planting Words, Fiona Robyn posts a photo of me and then writes: "This is Michael Kimball. ... He made me cry by creating a character called Jonathon, and making me care about him as if he were a member of my own family."

After that, there is an email conversation about DEAR EVERYBODY how novels begin, how to present difficult material, and what it's like to be an author.

This is stop #7 on my UK blog tour.

i once made a girl cry. unfortunately, it didn't involve any characters i created. it involve her lease. i had told her i would take it over and then called back three hours later saying i had found another room. tears followed. i felt kind of bad about the situation, but forgot about it until now.
but yes, your story is beautiful
