What is a blog hop? Basically, it’s a way for readers to discover authors new to them. I hope you’ll find new-to-you authors whose works you enjoy. On this stop on the blog hop, you’ll find a bit of information on me and one of my books and links to other authors you can explore!
My gratitude to fellow author, Sheri Fredricks, for inviting me to participate in this event. You can click the following links to learn more about Sheri and her books.
In this blog hop, my fellow authors and I, in our respective blogs, have answered ten questions about our current book or work-in-progress (giving you a sneak peek). We’ve also included some behind-the-scenes information about how and why we write what we write–the characters, inspirations, plotting and other choices we make. I hope you enjoy it!
Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and questions. Here is my Next Big Thing! And current work in progress.
1-What is your working title of your book?
2-Where did the idea come from for the book?
First off, I love Reynner, he appeared briefly in my first book, Absolute Surrender. After reading various legends of the pantheons, the one from the Sumerian pantheon caught my attention. A goddess who’d send her consort to Hell… what would stop her from sending a lover who spurned her, there too? My Machiavellian mind went to work and Darkness Undone was born.
3-What genre does your book fall under?
4-Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Honestly, I have no idea. But it wouldn’t be fair to put set images in readers mind when they can form their own, now would it? But I’d go for unknown actors. It would be fun. But if you find one close enough to resemble Reynner or Eve, I’d be quite interested to look at them 🙂
5-What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A fading realm, a warrior bound and the woman who’d save them both…
6-Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
It’s at querying status right now, so, I’ll be sending out to both agents and publishers of my genre.
7-How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Amazingly, six weeks for the rough draft.
8-What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
It is a paranormal romance. My stories have a different spin to them.
9-Who or what inspired you to write this book?
My daughter ♥ Her absolute faith in me. And of course, my hero, Reynner.
10-What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
What happens when a mortal takes on a goddess in a battle of life and death? More, it’s about choices in life. And yes — love, redemption.
Happy Writing and Reading!
