The Next Big Thing December 26, 2012
Thanks so much to Gemma Wilford who tagged me in her blog to take part in this Blog Hop: The Next Big Thing and please do not forget to visit her blog at http://missuswolf.wordpress.com/I really enjoyed doing this Gemma , and thanks for selecting me as one of the ones who got tagged. This means so much as an aspiring author and also as a validation to myself that I am where I am supposed to be!
Well let’s me begin now with the questions….
What is the working title of your book?
The working title of my book is, “Battered Mind.”
Where did the idea come from for the book?
One day I had been tending to my kids and needed some down time, and
this story came into my head.
What genre does your book fall under?
I would have to say it is a type of suspense thriller with drama.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie
It is funny that you asked this question. Every time I see my book come
alive I see the main character of Sadie Martin Carlyle being played by
Rachel McAdams, and Dante Carlyle would be played by Mark Ruffalo.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Secrets from the past come back to haunt a young woman who is on trial
for an alleged domestic violence case that ends in murder.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I am planning to self publish this book through CreateSpace.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Actually, it has taken more time to work on it since I wrote it in 2010. This
has been my first book, and I have been learning so much from Published
Authors and Writers. I have to say that Melissa Foster, and the World
Literary Cafe- have helped me see things differently. I also appreciate the
support of authors like Emerald Barnes, Stacy Eaton, Micheal Rivers and
all the group from Melissa Foster’s Awesome Support Team. I also have
gained more knowledge throughout my Writer’s Group on Linked in, headed
by Heather M. Schuldtz and also The Book Doctor’s David Henry Sterry
who also advised me to get into a writers group. However, there are so
many of you and I appreciate all the support, also a big shout out to all my
followers on my blog, Facebook, Twitter and Linked in. Thank you!
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I think my book has a feel sort of like a “Gone Girl Gone,” by Jillian
Flynn. If you have not read it, please do so.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I had always loved to write. The inspiration for this story was that I was really motivated to write a thriller that had some twist in it.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Sadie’s life is not as it seems, and the more you read the more you will find
that not everything is as it seems.
Now it’s my turn to give a shout out in this tour and have them mentioned and also tagged and I hope you will visit them.
