I get to be Queen For A Day as I talk about The Next Big Thing. I’ve been tagged by fellow author Traci Hohenstein who writes terrific women’s fiction. I’m supposed to tell you about my next book by answering the following questions, and then I have tagged five other authors who will tell you about their Next Big Thing. Let’s get started!
What is the working title of your next book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
Years ago when I read the ‘bodice rippers’ paperbacks I moved from the European Victorian era to North American Historical and still love reading them.
What genre does your book fall under?
I think those in the know would say more fiction than romance. But, it is a love story. A love story about sacrifice.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Twenty years ago I could tell you. Today with the new actors you sent me to the Google search and after looking at the latest hot hunk actors, all day...What was the question?
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Cassie and her son after taken captive must learn to except life sometimes forces unforeseen heart rendering choices on us all.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
This one is self-published.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
To complete the first draft and a rough one at that about five months.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Books by Madeline Baker and Catherine Anderson... to insult a few excellent authors.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Being out of work and having reread all the books in the house. I had no choice but to entertain myself. I am not a big fan of daytime TV soaps. I a little something and then wrote some more.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Wolfkeeper’s Woman doesn’t follow the rules of the romance genre. The hero and heroine do not fall instantly in love. Once Wolfkeeper discovers his feelings for Cassie, the woman whose husband he killed and the child he gave away he knows he has to heal her heart before he can even think of claiming it.
Here are some more lovely authors I’ve tagged to tell you about what they’re working on. Look for their posts and consider trying…their Next Big Thing!
