The Next Big Thing!

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?

Self pubbed. 

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 -

In the Queue.

Oh my gosh.  Some of you may be wondering how I work.  Well, not always well because I am a.  busy and b.  easily distracted.

I can’t whip the books out like some authors.  Wish I could.  Maybe if my books were 5-7K…  I can’t do it with a longer work.

However I do have a schedule of sorts.  It’s more of a queue.  The stories have to get in line and wait their turn.

I’m two-thirds of the way through Stay, the book that will tie up the story I began in Incorporeal and continued in In the Flesh.

Then, my dears, it’s on to the final re-writes of the Daughters of Persephone series, which I don’t think will take me long since it’s only Books One and Two that I will be focusing on.

After that sci/fi-fantasy romance series is complete and published, I’m picking up where I left off on my work of romantic suspense, Kerosene.

And then it’s on to another work of fantasy, already begun – Salvation.

I’ve got a time travel series planned.  And I’m considering a work of humorous, tongue-in-cheek extreme erotica… hmmm.  Am I up to the task?

We’ll see, won’t we?

 P.S.  If you haven’t read my work of women’s fiction?  Romance?  Romance suspense?  (hard to categorize) And you have a Kindle, you can pick up a copy of Come Back to Me for a mere 99 cents right now!
