Last week Gail Z. Martin (http://disquietingvisions.com/2012/12/11/big/) tagged me on her blog, as part of a chain of authors (or creative people) recommendations called THE NEXT BIG THING. Today it’s my turn to reciprocate. I’m going to answer questions about my new project Awakening the Wolf .
What is the working title of your next book?
The working title of my newest book is called Awakening the Wolf: A Two-Natured Novel and currently I’m writing the sequel to it called Awakening the Lion.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
The idea for the book came from a dream where the shape shifter characters were able to turn into two different animals instead of just one.
What genre does your book fall under?
My book falls under the Romance genre with a little bit of erotic and shape shifters.
If you found yourself in an elevator with a movie director you admire and had the chance to pitch your book to them, what would you say?
I would tell the movie director that no movie has ever been done about characters that can turn into two different animals. And there is a great love story to boot? It’s a cross between Twilight and Underworld except without the vampires.
Every writer dreams of their book being turned in a movie or a TV show like Game of Thrones. If this happened to your work, which actors would you choose to play your characters?
If Awakening the Wolf was turned into a movie, I would see Illiana, the heroine, being played by Scarlett Johansson. Belik, the main raven shifter, would be played by Orlando Bloom, and Christopher, main wolf shifter, would be played by Alex Pettyfer.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Once the characters started talking to me, they were the one to inspired me to write the book. I loved the story line and could not stop it.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
It took me a month to write the first draft of the manuscript.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Hmm…I can’t think of any specific books that I can compare it too.
When will your book be available?
This book will be available some time in the spring of 2013.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Well, if the readers enjoy a good love story with plenty of character development and a moving storyline, then this book is for them.
