From Jason Cantrell @ Writing Possibilities
Lovely Blog and The Next Big Thing
(Rules for The Lovely Blog. Tell 7 things about you, nominate 7 people)


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.

1. Why do you blog?
I enjoy sharing my vampire knowledge.

2. What would be your dream job, regardless of how much money you made?
It’s not a job but I always wanted to be a mom. The hours are long, the pay sucks, and you never get promoted, But this is what I’ve always known I’d do.

To make sure the person they’re “Chatting” with know what was said was in a friendly manner.

It changes as I need it to. Right now, MUSE “Panic Station”

6. Are you a writer, reader, strictly blogger, or a mesh of all three?
All three!

7. What was your favorite book growing up and why?
The BFG. It was the only thing that didn’t scare me out of my mind.

8. If Hulk picks up Thor, and Thor is holding his hammer –has Hulk picked up the hammer?
Of course, he’s picked up the hammer. The real question is ‘Why did Thor allow Hulk to pick him up?’

9. Is there something you do every day out of habit, but is unnecessary? (e.g. check twitter as soon as you wake up)
Check my email repeatedly.

10. Do you wear socks to bed?
At times, my toes freeze and I wouldn’t ever get to sleep if I didn’t.

Sorry, I don’t like Bruce Willis.
