For Mac by Brynn Stein Blog Tour.



Branson Farrell lost his parents when he was thirteen, and for the last ten years his brother, Mac, eight years his senior, has taken care of him
But Mac’s love came at a price. Both brothers were raised to believe being gay was completely unacceptable, and Branson has almost convinced himself he can be what Mac expects. When he looks at a man in a bar and Mac notices, Mac drags him off in horror.
Mac’s distress and disgust leads to a car accident that leaves Branson injured and Mac in a coma. Branson heals and stays at Mac’s bedside, but when Mac doesn’t recover, he is moved to a long-term care facility. There, Branson meets openly gay, confident, and attractive Liam Sullivan. Liam stirs feelings Branson thought he’d rid himself of, and to honor his brother, Branson fights tooth and nail against his attraction. When the cost of denying who he is becomes too high, Branson must battle a lifetime of hatred that’s been beaten into his body and mind to try for something of his own.

Author interview

What inspired you to start writing?
I know this is kind of a silly answer, but I’m really not sure. I’ve just always been writing. Even as a kid, I’d write new episodes of my favorit TV shows even before I knew what fan fiction was, then I wrote fan fiction as an adult even before I knew there was an audience for it. Then I found numerous online communities and the feedback was wonderful.  I really like feedback. What author doesn’t?
Then a friend, who read all my fan fiction, told me to strip what little fandom was in one of my stories (I usually wrote Alternate Universe anyway) and submit it to dreamspinner, and my first story, Haunted, was born.
So that’s the answer to HOW I started writing, but it doesn’t really address the inspiration part. That’s the part I don’t know. I’ve just always been driven to write... something...anything.
How long have you been writing?
LOL. See above. Pretty much all my life. In addition to writing fanfiction before I knew what it was called, I used to take pads of paper and pencils with me anywhere I went (or my mother did when I was younger still) and even in doctor’s offices or whatever, I’d write stories. Often in offices, I’d take magazines and write stories stringing the pictures together. My mother claims to still have some of them. I think she’s keeping them for blackmail purposes.
What advice would you give a new writer just starting out?
I don’t feel qualified to give advice in a professional capacity but to anyone who wants to write, for whatever reason, I say ”WRITE”. It doesn’t matter what. It doesn’t matter if you think it’s good. You can make it better later. Grammar can be fixed. Plot holes can be filled. Characters can be developed. But none of that can be done until you write SOMETHING. So just write.
Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?
Perfect question to follow my above advice. Yes. I do sometimes suffer from writer’s block, and I’m as guilty as anyone about procrastinating (*cough* hanging out on Facebook *cough*) but, when I take my own advice and actively try to work through the writer’s block, I just start writing whatever is in my head...stream of consciousness style if needbe. I’ve been know to start off with grocery lists in extreme cases. It’s funny how that can break through and actually lead to a story. You wouldn’t think it would work and it sounds silly, but it does work. At least, it works for me.
Who is your favorite author and why?
Isaac Asimov. For many reasons. I love science fiction, for one, and he was one of the pioneers. He coined terms used by other writers and even by scientists. And he was prolific. I lost track of how many books (fiction and nonfiction) he wrote. He’s credited for having written or edited over 500. And non of the ones I read were dull, so it wasn’t like he was just cranking out substandard stuff. He was knowledgeble in I don’t know how many fields. Just truly a modern Rennaisance man.

I've always loved to write and wrote fan fiction before I even knew what it was called. When computers came along, with online communities and places to publish fan fiction, I wrote even more. Then a friend convinced me to try to have an altered version of an AU (alternate universe, meaning all but original) published. My manuscript was accepted and now I'm a 'published author'.
