OK so my friend and fellow author Jax Cassidy tagged me in the Next Best Thing blog hop. Totally unexpected as you can see, so what I'll be doing is answering a few questions about the book I'm working on.
What is the working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I have thing for werewolves as heroes/ heroines add to that the trope of being an outsider and there you have an idea that nags me in my sleep and characters that demand their story be told.
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
You know I don't think in terms of actors. I know what my characters look like in my head and I know that my readers will eventually form their opinion of what the characters should look like. but Ria my Heroine looks a bit like Zoe Saldana with curly hair.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
a pack of werewolves, a half human isn’t exactly at the top of the food chain, but she's exactly what the pack and it's alpha needs to survive.
Will your book be self-published or published by an agency?
This series will be self-published.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I'm going to say three months, but really the process of editing takes a lot longer.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I'd love to say that it compares to some of my favorites, but honestly my heroine is a little softer than the heroines I read about.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It deals with change and self discovery and how a large family (the pack) comes together while under attack.
So I’m supposed to tag other authors to blog next week (1/02/13) hopefully you'll discover someone new:
Christopher Beats one of the guys that grace my table on occasion. Good friend, historian, devoted papa and awesome writer of steam punk noir.
Katie Reus another of my girlfriends and gifted writer of Romantic Suspense and Paranormal Romance.
KC Burn another of my friends and chapter mate and yet another gifted writer.
and last but not least
Charlee Aldeen another chapter mate, author and owner of the Smart Girls Love Sci-Fi blog.
