I have been tapped by author Aria Bellamy for the Next Big Thing Blog Tour. She’s a new friend of mine and you might want to stop by her blog and check out her steamy upcoming release Alexa Stone Top Ten List.
Now, I’ve already done a hop on the Next Big Thing Blog Tour. You can find that post here: https://scmitchell.wordpress.com/2012/12/19/the-next-big-thing-blog-tour/
Looking back on that I realized that I have finished that ‘Big Thing’ but I could use this as a way to share my next ‘Next Big Thing’ with you. So, here goes:
What is the title of your next book?
The working title is Hearts in Orbit
Where did the idea come from for the book?
Probably from my love of Science Fiction/Space Opera
What genre does your book fall under?
Science Fiction Romance
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I’m right at the beginning of the writing process and my characters haven’t solidified in my brain yet, so I don’t have a clear picture.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A woman, doing what she knows is right, ends up on the wrong side of the law and is pursued and captured by a relentless bounty hunter.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I am hoping Soul Mate Publishing will be interested in it, otherwise I plan to shop it around.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It’s far from done. I’m only a few chapters in. It should occupy the next two to three months.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I would say it’s similar to the books by Linnea Sinclair, though she writes in 1st person and this is in 3rd.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
The way things rumble around in my brain, it’s sometimes hard to tell where an idea comes from, but I would say it’s a combination of Star Wars, Linnea Sinclair, and too little sleep.
What else about your book might pique the reader interest?
I’ve created a new race of aliens called the blarmings. In this universe all the cats and dogs were wiped out by a virus and people are looking for a new type of pet. The blarmlings are adorable furry creatures, highly intelligent and pacific. A ruthless galactic corporation has started trapping and caging the blarmlings and my heroin decides she has to take a stand. She needs to show the galaxy that the blarmlings are people, not animals.
So there you have it. My next Next Big Thing.
