Any James Bond fans out there? Amy McCorkle's new story is Another Way to Die, a sexy, nail-biting thriller from MuseItUp Publishing. She kindly agreed to share some thoughts about the process of writing this story.

Writing Another Way To Die wasn’t supposed to end in publication. That wasn’t the plan at all when I started it. I was putting together a screenplay and movie package and wanted something to do with my time while I waited for an actor to get back to me with an answer as to whether or not he would attach himself to that project and I needed something to keep me busy. And I wanted to write a James Bond story. More succinctly I wanted to fall in love with a character who looked suspiciously like Daniel Craig and voila, Daniel Logan was born.
Well, it wasn’t quite that simple. I thought I also wanted to tell a marathoning story. In the subsequent rewrites the only running involved were the chase sequences. And Daniel Logan turned out be the hero I fell in love with.
At the time I was reading The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. That, combined with my own personal experiences, and a dash of high drama the core of the heroine’s (Almira Sands) backstory was settled on. And while the story is gritty and dark there is a HFN* involved and there are plans to eventually create stories for Luke Logan and another character.
I love my cover, I hated the editing process, not my editor, but the process, and am hopeful I never lose that much of a story again. LOL.
