Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is happy to host Sean Michael here today on tour for the latest in his The Supers series, The Librarian’s Ghost.  Welcome, Sean.

Thank you to Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words for hosting me today!

When I started writing this story, I knew in my head what in general was going to happen. I knew there was a house the Supers would be called in to see, that this one was going to be the real thing, and that they were going to save the day, of course. I also knew this was Will’s story, and I had Payne slowly taking shape in my head as Will’s guy.

That’s usually about what I have in my back pocket when I start writing. Bare bones because I’ve learned that anytime I plan too much, the characters laugh at me and take off in their own merry direction.

So I start writing. The guys wrap up their latest case, they talk about their new case. They get to the MacGregor House where everything is supposed to be going down, they meet Payne. And Will turns into this huge asshole. I’m writing it and going WTF, Will? This is your forever man, why are you blowing it like this? And I’m focussed on how Payne is taking Will and it isn’t great, but then I notice that the other characters are also all going WTF, Will?

I keep writing, I try and turn Will around. I think I finally have when I get to a scene at a restaurant and Will is suddenly his usual self again and is being nice to Payne. Okay, cool. Back on track. And then they get back to the MacGregor House and Will turns into an big time jerk again. So I go, WTF, Will?

Then, of course, it dawns on me that Will is not being himself for a reason. At that point I stopped trying to fight it and let the characters do what they would, because clearly, they knew better than me. And in the end, they totally did!

I hope you enjoy The Librarian’s Ghost and if you haven’t read The Supers yet, you can still enjoy it, just know that Will is not usually a first class butthole.

Blurb:

Can love survive the perils of MacGregor House?

The Supernatural Explorers are back and looking for their next big paranormal case. They might’ve found it in a plea from Payne, a mild-mannered librarian who has inherited the family mansion—MacGregor House. Since moving in a few months ago, Payne’s exhausted the list of ghost hunters and experts in his quest for help. The Supers are his last chance.

So why does normally good-natured cameraman Will take an instant dislike to Payne? For that matter, why has he felt irritable and angry since they arrived at the site? It soon becomes clear that the answers they seek will be found in the basement—where nobody has gone since Payne was a little boy. As the haunting grows deadlier, things get sweeter between Will and Payne, but all hell’s about to break loose when they breach the basement door.

Will they be ready?
