The Next Big Thing
What’s the working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I thought I should write a book about werewolves. I sat the idea to the side for awhile, because I was so busy writing my other novels.
What genre does your book fall under?
Ya or Na paranormal romance.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
As with the other WIPs, I don’t see any actor as my characters.
What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
What is a girl who holds the weight of her kind on her shoulders to do when she falls in love with the wrong guy.
Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?
I’ll look for an agent.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I’m still working on it.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I haven’t seen anything similar. That doesn’t mean there isn’t one
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I had the intention to write it much later. I heard Pink’s Try from the “Truth About Love” album. The story had to come out. I wrote an outline that night. I waited a few days for Nano, I wrote close to13000 words before the stress of it all took me under (about 2 weeks) .
What else about your book might pique the readers’ interest?
My MC Miranda is a strong woman. She has more power and control in her life than most young ladies her age.
