Welcome to the Next Big Thing Blog Hop where we will be hopping our way to various blogs to find out what fellow authors are working on. At this stop, I will be answering 10 questions on my work in progress. Thank you Jeanne Bannon for tagging me to participate.
Here are my 10 questions along with the answers. Enjoy! And as always, feel free to let me know what you think.
What is the working title of your book? Make it Last
Where did the idea come from for the book? I wanted to write a New Adult Romance and had been listening to a lot of Country music, and the idea to write a contemporary romance set in a small Texas town sounded like the perfect fit.
What genre does your book fall under? New Adult Contemporary Romance.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? I have been pinning people that resemble my idea of the characters to a board in pinterest, you can see it here. Not all of them are actors.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? When her first love returns and wants a second chance, will Briana be able to put aside the hurt and follow her heart?
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? The first draft took about a month. I was really excited about the concept, so the writing came pretty naturally.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? This will be the first in a trilogy, which I have written with the many trilogies written by Nora Roberts in mind. All of the characters will be in each of the books, with each book telling one couples story.
Who or What inspired you to write this book? Nora Roberts and Country music.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? This is my first attempt at New Adult, third person past tense, and my first sex scene. I am really enjoying experimenting with my writing and pushing myself outside of my comfort zone. Hopefully the readers will enjoy this tale of second chances.
Thank you for stopping by. Next week be sure to stop by Marilyn Almodovar's blog, Writing on the Sunny Side of the Street to see what she is working on.
