Today’s a two-fold blog.
1. I’m being interviewed at: Rogues Angels
I hope to see you there. Remember at the end of the tour, one lucky commentor will win a $25.00 Amazon gift card and an e-copy of Mystic Ink (either Kindle or Nook version).
2. I’m also participating The Next Big Thing Blog Hop.
The point of the hop is for authors to answer 10 questions about their current work-in-progress and to give readers a little taste of what’s coming up. I was tagged by PJ Sharon.
Faithful readers, you will not be surprised to learn there are rules:
- Post the rules.
- Answer the provided ten questions about your current WIP (Work In Progress) on your blog . Note: I did not modify these questions. I’m answering as is.
- Tag five other writers/bloggers and add their links so we can hop over and meet them.
- Link back to the person who tagged you.
Easy peasy. Now to the main show!
What is the working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
It’s the next book after Mystic Ink. At the end of Mystic Ink, Zephyr, God of the West Wind was cursed by the Fates. You have to read Mystic Storm to find out what happens next.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I have no idea! I don’t actually visualize real people when I created my characters. I leave that up to others to decide.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Dude looks like a lady and he isn’t happy about it! And that’s the only hint I’m giving!
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Neither. I’m currently published with Soul Mate Publishing (Mystic Ink) and Pink Petal Books (The Undead Space Initiative).
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I’m still writing it. Normally it takes about 6-8 weeks for me to actually write a book (but that is after a month or two of plotting). Mystic Storm is taking longer partly because I wrote another novel, Misfortune Cookie, this summer.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
My editor at Soul Mate has compared my writing to Harry Dresden (Jim Butcher) mixed with the TV show Charmed.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Since the is the second book, expect more romance, action and Gods behaving badly in the modern day world. Since Zephyr owns an Inn/day spa in Stonington Point, CT expect new locales and new characters along with the return of old favorites like Devlin Ward, Satyr, and proprietor of the local pawn shop in downtown Mystic.
