In most blog tours, a single author appears on a variety of blogs, moving around the Internet and allowing the readers of those blogs get to know the author.

In the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, the authors stay on their blogs and it's you, the reader, who takes the tour.

Each month, our participating authors from around the world agree to blog on a single topic throughout the month. By following the links in each month's post, you'll discover a whole bunch of new authors in a variety of genres, levels of experience, and styles of writing.

We hope you enjoy the trip and come back each month for a new spin around the globe.

The Idea That Came Out of the Blue

All right. So this month's topic on the blog tour is "Where You Got Your Latest Idea" . . . Cue a few moments of silence as I try to remember just what my latest story idea was. To be honest, I can't remember which idea is the latest since I simply have so many of them. I still know the inspiration for the story I'm currently working on, though. It all came when Lily--the girl I nearly dated in high school--asked me to write some sort of "what if" (or perhaps "could have been") story about a romance between characters based upon me and her. (So how did it go, then?)
