I normally don’t participate in this stuff, but a dear friend, Sandra Cox, an author who has stuck with me since the day I signed my very first contract, tagged me, so here I go. (Quick answers!)
The Next Big Thing Blog Hop (or Blog Tag)!
Ten Interview Questions for The Next Big Thing:
What is the working title of your book?
Ack! I have a bunch – finishing up my Daughters of Persephone Series- Exile, Return, Reborn and The Red Demon. I have two WIPs in process – Kerosene (Romantic Suspense) and Salvation (Futuristic Fantasy). I’m also working on One Hour (Science Fiction), Emma (Paranormal Romance) and the sequels to a couple of other books.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
Haven’t a clue – but all my books begin in real life, even if they are science fiction/fantasy. As far as Daughters of Persephone is concerned, my inspiration comes from my love of science fiction and fantasy novels. I simply decided to turn the concept around and put the focus on female warriors and saviors rather than males.
What genre does your book fall under?
Daughters of Persephone is definitely SFR (Science Fiction Romance).
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Think Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Time is relative.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
One month for each of the four books.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Um… nothing I’ve read in my genre. Outside of SFR, maybe Dune.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
See the answer to question two.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Think kick ass heroines who can travel through time and retain the memories of all their ancestresses. And the sexy men who are blood-bonded to them.
Now I’m supposed to tag five authors. Jeez, I hate doing this because we are all so busy -
