{November 20, 2012}   The Next Big Thing

I was tagged (nominated) by the wonderful Natalie C. Hancock to participate in The Next Big Thing.  Thanks for thinking of this newbie, Natalie!!

The Next Big Thing is an opportunity for me to talk about a work (or works) in progress, so let’s get this started, shall we?

Here are the questions:

What is the working title of your next book?

Sealed With A Kiss

Where did the idea come from for the book?

I love reading romance, comedy, and paranormal stories, so I wanted to emulate what I like.

What genre does your book fall under?

Romance, comedy, paranormal

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Rebel Wilson for the lead heroine, and Jensen Ackles for the lead hero.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

A feisty, voluptuous, blonde Amazon meets a half-selkie river guide and nature takes its course.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

I’m unsure, as of yet.  I have to finish it first. 🙂

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I haven’t finished, so no idea.  I’m hoping it won’t take very long.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I hope that it’ll be funny, silly, and romantic…I think it might be a melting pot of different genres, so we’ll have to see how it comes out.  😉

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

I went on a river rafting adventure with my bestie/sister.  It was terrifying and exhilarating.  I’m basing my characters and settings on our adventure, along with loads of embellishment.  And sex.  😉

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? 

I think it’ll be an interesting and new take on the Selkie legends. Plus, my heroine isn’t a stick-thin young lady.  She’s in her 30s, plump, TALL, and comfortable in her skin, however large it might be.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my WIP.  Please check out these other amazing authors and see what they have cooking up.
