I’ve had the pleasure of being tagged for “The Next Big Thing” Blog tour by two of my writer friends:
Helen C. Johannes: http://helencjohannes.blogspot.com/
Her new book is entitled Bloodstone, and it sounds like a great Fantasy Romance.
Connie Rhinehart : www.connierhinehart.wordpress.com
One of my Soul Mate sisters and author of Daughter of Phalon, a really cool cross-genre SF/Paranormal romance coming out this winter from Soul Mate Publishing.
So be sure to check out their websites to see their Next Big Thing posts after reading mine. Now, I’m excited to share what I’ve been working on.
Ten Interview Questions for “The Next Big Thing”:
What is your working title of your book?
Seeds of Immortality
Where did the idea come from for the book?
Seeds is the third novella in my Demons Rising series. It’s drawn from characters and events in the first two books: There’s no such thing as Werewolves and The Forsaken Templar
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Ryan Chamberlain, my serious minded Templar Knight, would be played by Ryan Reynolds.
Mila Kunis is my pick to play the exotically sexy sorceress, Salina Frye.
Admit it. These two in an action/romance would be hot.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Two mortal enemies must learn to work together to save the world.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
This will (hopefully) be my last self-published title, at least for now. Seeds of Immortality completes the Demon’s rising saga. After I publish it, I plan to concentrate on novels for my new publisher, Soul Mate Publishing.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
This one has taken me about four months, but I’ve also been working on other writing projects during that time as well.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
In my romance stories I have always tried to emulate the style and tone of Sherrilyn Kenyon and her Dark Hunter series.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
The world I created, when I started writing Templar (Yeah, the 2nd book was the first one I wrote) continues to draw me in. Even though Seeds of Immortality will be the last book in the Demon’s Rising Saga, it will certainly not be the last book set in this world.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Well, I expect to have Seeds of Immortality out and available in the next few days, hopefully before Christmas. The trilogy, while exciting and sexy stories in their own right, sets the stage for a dark future world filled with fun challenges for the Arcanists and the Templars. Seeds of Immortality is just the end of the beginning…
Now that I’ve had all the fun talking about my book, I’m passing the torch to two of my Soul Mate sisters and one of my WisRWA friends. Please visit their blogs and see what “The Next Big Thing” is coming from them:
