Happy July and middle of summer (for many of us)  Smiley

Our last featured story before we begin our top ten countdown to 100 will be Dodging the Daylight by KeepThisSecret .

At first I was really hesitant to read this story because right at the beginning, Nick is murdered and we all know how I feel about my Backstreet Boys being alive. I'm so glad I went ahead and gave it a try. You should all go check it out if you haven't yet, especially if you are a big fan of suspense, bromance, drama and good writing!

Here is the link: http://absolutechaos.net/viewstory.php?sid=11254

Happy Reading!

1) Tell us one thing about your story that no one else knows?

2) How long did it take you to write this entire story?

3) Give us a summary different from the one you have posted on AC, with a few more spoilers to make people tune in.

4) What made you come up with the concept of this one?

5) Who was your favorite character in this story and why?

6) You had to know this was coming, who was your least favorite?

7) Are all the boys in this one? If not why did you choose to exclude them?

First of all, I just wanted to say a massive "THANK YOU" for featuring my story this month. I also want to extend my thanks to everyone who is currently reading Dodging The Daylight. I really appreciate the fact that people are giving my writing a chance. I am new to AC and everyone has been so welcoming and the feedback that I have been receiving has been amazing. You have all made me feel seriously warm and fuzzy inside.  Grin

1) Tell us one thing about your story that no one else knows? I was originally thinking that members of Nick's family would be the villains in this story (tried to kill him for his money type of deal), but that idea quickly died as I got farther along. Looking back, I'm so glad that I went away from that idea.

2) How long did it take you to write this entire story? I have been writing this story on and off over the course of about four months. Although it is currently only a few chapters away from being finished, I am still going back and revising certain aspects before I post the chapters.

3) Give us a summary different from the one you have posted on AC, with a few more spoilers to make people tune in. * This new summary definitely contains a HUGE spoiler. I know that a lot of people probably stayed away from this story because of the whole Nick being dead idea, so I hope this new summary eases some of those fears and encourages those of you who were on the fence to give the story a shot.*  Wink -- When a Nick Carter look-a-like is killed due to a supposed case of mistaken identity, the boys find themselves ripped away from their families and placed in a "safe house". The events that follow require the boys to come together in a way that they haven't been able to since the early days of their career. As the boys struggle with the clear divisions that exist within their group, they are forced to fight for their lives while they wait for the police to figure out who is targeting them.

4) What made you come up with the concept of this one? I was actually watching an episode of Castle in which a celebrity look-a-like was killed due to a case of mistaken identity. So, I suppose I should send out a "thank you" to the writers of Castle for being my inspiration.

5) Who was your favorite character in this story and why? Surprisingly, my favourite character is AJ. I've tried to make him a little bit more prominent in this story by focusing on his respective relationships with Brian and Nick and the way in which he "interferes" with the whole Frick and Frack dynamic.

6) You had to know this was coming, who was your least favorite? I hate to say it, but it's Howie. I REALLY struggle to channel his character. I have tried hard to include his POV, but sometimes I actually find myself dreading his chapters because I feel as though I'm not portraying him very well.

7) Are all the boys in this one? If not why did you choose to exclude them? Yes, all of the boys are in this one. I made a conscious effort to make sure that each boy has a voice in this story.

I seriously believe that if you changed your current summary to the one you just put in here, even more people would check out your story. You should consider doing that!

Your Howie comes off great FYI.

Some of these questions are really tough ...  Huh?

Here is to getting to know you a little better!

1. Real name: Erika
2. How long have you been on AC? A little less then a year.
3. How long have you been writing fanfics? Oh God ... I used to write them back in high school, but I never posted any of those stories online (they were cringe worthy at best, but my friends seemed to like them). I started writing again about a year ago after taking a massive break.
4. Give us a list of stories you have written. On AC: "Fan Connection", "A Dash of Cinnamon" and "Dodging The Daylight" (in progress)
5. List some of your all time favorite stories you have read. We're talking the classics?? "Where Can We Go From Here?" by Whitney, "The Boys in the Basement" and "Everybody" by Eboni, and "Ground Zero" by Chaos are the ones that come to mind first.
6. Do you have your own site? Nope!
7. What are your favorite types of stories to read? I will give pretty much anything a chance. Drama and suspense are my favourite, but I like a romance if it is well-written. I'm a sucker for bromance as well.
8. Who is your favorite BSB? Brian  Grin
9. Do you find yourself writing about him more than the others? Yeah ...
10. What do you want to do with the rest of your life? This is a loaded question!! Ummmm ... I want to do whatever it is that makes me happy ...  Stick out tongue
11. Where are you from? Canada!!
12. What kinds of hobbies do you enjoy? Reading, writing, scrap-booking, and spending massive amounts of time with my friends and my hubby.
13. What's your favorite movie? Dirty Dancing!!
14. What's your favorite book? I, honestly, don't have a favourite book. I love too many authors/books to be able to pick a favourite.
15. Any hidden talents? Nope! I'm not that interesting. LOL
