I’m told I’ve been nominated for The Next Big Thing award. Twice!! Cool. I guess it’s a blog hop, where writers get to share their WIP and have to nominate a few other writers to do the same. Thanks to Danielle Taylor and Mitch Lavender for nominating me. Here goes nothing.
1) What is the title of your next book?
TWIST AND TURN. I’m currently in the editing phase of book two in The Twisted Trilogy.
2) Where did the idea come from for the book?
One day, after reading a series by a new author, I thought ‘I could do that’. So I googled hot celebrities for inspiration and started dreaming up a life for them. My novel TWISTED wasn’t ready to be finished, so it quickly became The Twisted Trilogy.
3) What genre does your project fall under?
New Adult Contemporary Romance with a paranormal twist.
4) What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
I picture Abigail looking like Minka Kelly. For Edwin, I’d like Channing Tatum‘s personality wrapped in Kellan Lutz‘s body. What? I can’t do that? 😉
Here’s who I’d choose if given the choice:
5) What is a one sentence synopsis of your work?
Sexy, playful characters, caught up in a love triangle, making a girl decide which relationship is better for her: the long-time friendship turned into love, or love at first sight.
6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I intend to self-publish the entire Twisted Trilogy.
7) How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
It took me about a year to finish the first draft of The Twisted Trilogy (three books).
8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
To be honest with you, I haven’t read a whole lot of New Adult novels, the genre being fairly new. I haven’t read a single trilogy in that genre. And I hate to compare it to Twilight, but for the lack of a better comparison, I’d say it’s like Twilight with more sex and no vampires or wolves, and exchange the school scenes for a lawyer’s office.
9) Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I’ve always loved to write, but reading is actually what inspired me to write a story myself. When I started writing, I never expected to share the story with anyone. It was for my own entertainment only. But once I was done, I felt like it was too good not to share and my friends and family agreed.
10) What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?
Strong, sexy, comical men. Soft, sassy, confident women. Throw in love at first sight, a gorgeous man with an adorable little girl, a jealous housemate not ready to give up, and a pair of bitchy sisters who haunt them all day and night, dead or alive, and you get TWIST AND TURN.
Thanks again to Mitch and Danielle for nominating me. If you haven’t already, you should check out their blogs:
