Today I am thrilled to be hosting a stop on the Stung by Bethany Wiggins blog tour.

There is no cure for being stung.

Fiona doesn’t remember going to sleep. But when she opens her eyes, she discovers her entire world has been altered—her house is abandoned and broken, and the entire neighborhood is barren and dead. Even stranger is the tattoo on her right hand—a black oval with five marks on either side—that she doesn’t remember getting but somehow knows she must cover at any cost. She’s right.

Those bearing the tattoo have turned into mindless, violent beasts that roam the streets and sewers, preying upon the unbranded while a select few live protected inside a fortress-like wall, their lives devoted to rebuilding society and killing all who bear the mark.

Now Fiona has awakened branded, alone—and on the wrong side of the wall.

About Bethany Wiggins:
Bethany Wiggins has always been an avid reader, but not an avid writer.  She failed ninth grade English because she read novels instead of doing her homework. In high school, she sat alone at lunch and read massive hardback fantasy novels (Tad Williams and Robert Jordan anyone?). It wasn’t until the end of her senior year that the other students realized she was reading fiction–not the Bible.
Once upon a time, Bethany’s sister dared her to start writing an hour a day until she completed a novel. Bethany wrote a seven-hundred page fantasy novel that she wisely let no one read–but it taught her how to write.  She is the author of SHIFTING, STUNG (April 2013), and CURED (2014).
Today’s Blog Tour Post is a guest post from Bethany about her writing space!
I am sitting at my writing desk right now. I do not have a laptop, so I always write in my upstairs family room. There is a green smoothie on the desk beside me. There is a robot coloring book and a children’s Book of Mormon on my left, a little bag of hair stuff and a small crystal globe on my right. A hooked on phonics book is on top of my printer, with my daughter’s school reading log beside it. Coldplay is playing on I-tunes–no the song just changed to Beach House’s “Myth.” My two-year-old is sitting on the floor putting hair bows on her stuffed animal kittens.
That being said, my writing space is much more mental then physical! Being the mother of four small children, I have learned to write with a lot of distractions. I also typically only write after they all go to bed, but I have a lot of blog posts to do for this blog tour, so I am breaking my own rules!
Writing space is good music, a clear mind, a full belly, and having my family taken care of. When all those are met, my mind has permission to go wherever it wants! My writing space is 99% mental, and it can be any time, anywhere. If the story is there, the space creates itself!
