Demetria Foster Gray over at Shaken But Not Stirred has tagged me for The Next Big Thing blog hop in which you answer a set of questions about your WIP presumably with the thought it may be “The Next Big Thing”. I was honored that she thought enough to include me.
My WIP and I have been having a rough time lately, so I took a very long sigh before tackling the questions. So here goes
1. What is the working title of your book?
Ok, I really don’t have a working title yet. I usually don’t attempt a title until I’ve finished the first draft of whatever I’m working on.
2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
I’ve always been intrigued by love triangles. How do they happen? Can you really love more than one person at the same time? And what happens when those relationships falter?
3. What genre does your book fall under?
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
For the female MC, Cree St. John, I would say Kat Graham would best represent her. No male actors come to mind for my two male MCs but I did find two models who embody what I envision them to look like. The male lead, Gabriel Rawlings, looks similar to model, Keston Karter. Male model, Moneon Warren, would be a sexy fit to play the other male MC, Dazz Henderson.
5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Cree St. John, while trying to salvage the remnants of her singing career and her strained relationship with Dazz Henderson, unwittingly falls in love with Dazz’s best friend.
6. If you plan to publish, will you self-publish traditionally?
Right now I’m keeping my options open.
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Since I haven’t finished the first draft yet, I’m not sure how long my process takes yet but I know that it’s a slow one. LOL!
8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I love Eric Jerome Dickey. His books are always sexy and full of drama.
9. Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I don’t think anything or anyone inspired me but I do love a sexy story about relationships.
10. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
People tend to have a biased view of themselves and sometimes it takes the people around them to show them the good, the bad and the ugly.
Well, that wasn’t so hard! Now I have to tag a few writers to answer the same questions about their current writing project.
