For WW2 spy thriller readers!
I welcome your opinion about the race of a hero in a book I am writing called
The Glass Beacon.
Does it matter to you, or anyone actually that the hero is German and goes to Britain to carry out his mission.
It is important to understand that although this is a historical fiction about spy activity, the underlying theme is a romance.
In simple terms, German spy meets German girl and unintentionally, they fall in love. He has to go off on the mission with two men and a woman he has trained to Britain. He also had a fling with the woman, before he left. There will be the usual sneaky spy stuff, but because of betrayal, the hero tracks down and (well, you know!) Eventually he meets up with the girl he fell in love with and wants her to run away to Brazil and leave the war behind them.
I have taken great care to write from the German or British characters point of view and NOT TAKE SIDES. There is no "my side won" aspect to the story. I hope as the plot develops, the reader will switch allegiance, many times, I hope the German Hero wins, then I hope the British agent wins...
The question is, if you are British, does it bother you the hero is German or if you are German, are you bothered the British are damn smart too?
I would love to hear from you, your considered views are most important to me. johndayauthor@gmail.com

Wow, so am I, "in my dreams". Ha ha!
I am afraid I was limited to bugging and commercial spying. It was against the commercial background that prompted me to write the Max & Carla series. Effectively, they were trouble shooters for a global concern. They were required to cover up mistakes or discoveries that would cost their employer money. Of course this was written so they had a spy-like or agent role.
I hope you will read and enjoy The Glass Beacon at Beta stage, I would welcome your criticism. I will make a not to send to you in the near future.
Drop me an email so I don't lose you.
Kind regards
John Not my real name, of course.

Writing On Hard-To-Hear Topics

+C.S. MacCath writes on a variety of topics, and is widely published in both scifi and pagan markets, but in "The Vegan Pagan" series she exercises her skills in discussing difficult truths with less than receptive audiences. After having observed the mixed reception these articles have received (both positive and not so positive) in various venues, I'm now sharing it around by way of asking a question to others in the craft: What techniques do you use when writing on subjects for potentially antagonistic audiences?

The next installment of The Vegan Pagan blog series is up at PaganSquare. #csmpsblog
This is the last full installment of The Vegan Pagan before I finish the series next month. I made the decision to post it last because I\'ve been a vegan activist long enough to know that many non-vegans expect the animal rights argument first, and many also don\'t realize there are other reasons for making the ethical choice I have. But while it was useful to place health, ecological and humanitarian arguments for veganism at the forefront of t...
