Week 9 of The Next Big Thing

Thank you, Kai Wilson, for tagging me. This promises to be a lot of fun.

So here are my answers to the questions:

What is the working title of your book?

One Small Touch

Where did the idea come from for the book?

This story has evolved over time. It started as a mystery novel I attempted for National Novel Writing month a couple years ago. I hadn’t written anything since high school and a friend persuaded me to pick the pen back up.

I had issues keeping it a mystery story, however. Somehow, it morphed into a romance as the story progressed. Once the title came to me, paranormal elements were added.

What genre does your book fall under?

Paranormal romance is the closest category.

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

I’ve never really thought about it.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

When Laurel Wentworth’s husband is killed in a suspicious car crash it’s up to Lt. Aaron March to save her from a similar fate. (Yeah, it’s a bad synopsis. I’ll work on it.)

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

Self-published.

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

Roughly, 6 months of actual writing. I had lots of fits and starts so those 6 months of writing took a bit over a year to complete.

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

I’d like to be compared to Marjorie M. Liu but doubt it will happen. My romantic elements aren’t as ‘in-your-face’ as most romance books.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

Shanti Krishanmurty encouraged me to write again. My inspiration was proving to myself I could do it.

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

The mystery of what’s going on will keep the pages turning even while the reader falls in love with my hero and heroine.

And now it’s my turn to do some tagging:
Shanti Krishnamurty
Christine Hughes
Cree Walker
Spring Stevens
David Klenda
