The Next Big Thing – Writers Discuss New Work
As part of ‘The Next Big Thing Blog Hop,’ I was tagged by the incomparable Sacchi Green in her post last week. http://sacchi-green.blogspot.com/ The purpose of this hop is to expose folks to writers and their work that perhaps they haven’t heard of, whether a new release or a Work in Progress (WIP). This is week 26.
According to the rules of the hop, I will be answering some questions (the same ones for every other blog hopper) about either my newest release or my WIP and then at the bottom of the post I’ll listed authors who will do the same thing in their blogs next Wednesday Dec 26th.
What is the working title of your book?
The working title of the book is Escapades. The title fits the book very well, so I’m hoping it’ll stick!
Where did the idea come from for the book?
The idea really just hit me one day. That’s usually how it works for me. Random thoughts float through my head until some coalesce enough to form the idea for a novel.
What genre does your book fall under?
Erotic Romance (What else? LOL)
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I’d have to go with Katherine Moennig as Joey and Portia DeGenerous as Samantha. I realize they’re older than the late twenty-something characters, but they could pull it off, I’m sure!
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Two women with painful pasts struggle to accept that true love could happen again.
What is the longer synopsis of your book?
Joey Scarpetti is set in her ways as a single, carefree playboi. Until she meets Samantha Brewer. She tries to convince herself she just wants to take Samantha to bed, and is surprised when she finds herself developing real feelings for her. The twist is Samantha is pregnant. Is Joey ready for a relationship, let alone a ready made family?
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
It will be published by Bold Strokes Books
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Working time, it probably took about 8 months. I say working time because I took about a three month break from it before going back to finish it.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
As usual, life inspired me. It’s set in a fictional town based on the area where I grew up, but outside of that, it really just grew out of an idea in my head.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Escapades has a strong erotic content, but it’s also a sweet love story between two women that you really can’t help but want to end up together.
