The Next Big Thing Blog Hop
The amazingly talented Carly Phillips tagged me in this new blog hop … so I get to answer ten questions about my “Next Big Thing” and tag another 2 victims … and they continue the madness! The good news for you is that you get to find out a little something about what your favorite authors are up to while being introduced to authors who might be new to you. And you don’t have to do anything in return.
|Coming February 2013|
1. What is the working title of your book?
2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
I had to think of a way to get Sebastian Romanov to Holland Springs *and* how to work in the whole Christian and Sebastian's dad bought a title.
Turns out, after a little research, there are quite a few titles needing their heirs due to the Crown taking them (the titles, not the heirs) for committing treason during WWI. It was called the Titles Deprivation Act of 1917.
And since we all know Vladimir Romanov is ruthless as all get out...I won't spoil exactly how he claimed the title. You'll have to read the book. ;)
3. What is the genre of the book?
Contemporary, and while it's small town, Sebastian and Daisy take a long trip to England. :)
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Paul Walker and whoever this girl is beside him on my Holland Springs Pinterest Page. ;)
5.What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
The new earl of Spenserfield has a problem only a fake engagement to Holland Springs favorite caterer can solve, but as fake turns real will Sebastian's inability to reconcile himself with his past make Daisy serve him his just desserts instead?
(I also like to refer to this as 21st Century Downton Abbey meets one generation removed from Dukes of Hazzard. heh! )
6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency/publisher?
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
About one month. I wrote it during Nano. :) Now I'm polishing, polishing before I send it to my editor and beta readers.
8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I have no idea. :) Honestly, this book lets me indulge my historical fantasies with the whole aristocracy and commoner aspect, and I'm totally excited!
9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
My readers. They've been clamoring for Sebastian's story and I am more than happy to give it to them! :)
10. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Let's see...One Hot earl, a fake engagement, tattoos and a wicked piercing.
My tagged authors/victims up next are: Andris Bear
two genres or completely opposite works? (I'm still waiting to see the
Abraham Lincoln and Vampires movie. )
