The Next Big Thing! Who’s Game then?

Ooooookay then. You’re invited here today because, once again—thanks, Kastil—I have been tagged in the very popular blog hop: THE NEXT BIG THING! 😀

trees pencil1The deal is, you answer the questions about your latest WIP, and then nudge other people into joining in to keep it rolling. And whilst I kinda considered not playing, because … well, because I’m still working on the same project I was when I did the last one, I’ve decided to come up with the goods anyway. Who knows? Maybe this time I’ll be a little more accommodating.

Here goes ….

1. What is the working title of your book?

Okay, so maybe I can’t be more accommodating in this area. Because my WIP is still Holloway Pack 4, and I still have no intention of revealing the title or MC(s) until the contract is in the bag and the announcement for that made. Sorry.

2. Where did the idea come from for the book? 

As stated the last time, I realised so far through writing Caged who the MC would be for book #4, and it didn’t take me long to figure out who the other MC would be (because, yep, this is the first Holloway Pack title that will contain two POV’s in one book)—and as soon as I had those identified, the conflict arrived right alongside.

3. What is the genre of the book?

It borders on being urban fantasy, though I suspect it leans more toward PNR.

4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

As always: Nooooooooo fricking frackin’ idea. I don’t see my characters visually beyond hair colour, eye colour, and build. When I write/read them, they are more of a presence to me. And not just my characters, but those written by others that I read, too. Unless it’s blindingly obvious due to an image being on the cover, or an eye colour being mentioned so many times we’re hit upside the head with it, I can rarely tell you what a character looks like by the time I reach the end of whatever book I’m reading. I only know these details for my own characters because I write them. Otherwise, I just remember what I loved about the characters—and it usually has zilch to do with how they look.

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Ach. I can’t even remember what I wrote for this the last time—and I’m naff at this kinda stuff. Naff at taglines. Naff at blurbs. But here goes: When you believe in something enough, even the forbidden, you will do whatever it takes to achieve it, no matter the costs. Totally crap, but you get the gist.

6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency/publisher?

Published by Indie pubber J. Taylor Publishing, who all the preceding Holloway Pack titles are contracted to.

7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay tooooooooooo looooooooooooooooooong!!!!!

Still working on it. Will have it in the bag soon.

8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

As I’ve said before: Hopefully none.

9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?

100% the two MC’s. And my fans. Since writing Caged, I’ve wanted to provide my readership with a title for each of my male pack members. That’s what the next few Holloway Pack books are going to be all about.

10. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Did you see the mention of ‘forbidden’ above? Some things are forbidden for good reason. Because they’re just plain wrong. It only takes one to disagree with that opinion, and it’s enough to start a war. 😉

Aaaaaaaaaaand that’s it for me.

So now I’m nominating YOU to have a play. Yes, yes, you’re supposed to tag X amount of friends to take their turn next, but truth is, my pals are probably sick of me tagging them. So instead, I’m leaving it up to you. Your choice. Play, don’t play—it’s up to you. But if you do, don’t forget to leave a link in the comments here so I can come check you out. 😀

  1. Yikes! There are so many of those questions I can’t answer about my latest project and I’m supposed to be the expert, for God’s sake.

    Great post.

  2. And I am not even going to try and pretend like I should participate – I am rewriting again so answering how long it took for draft one is a joke for me. But i do find these interviews interesting and a great look into an authors mind. Love your answer to who would play your characters in a movie. 🙂

    1. Everyone works at different speeds and in which way works best for them, so never feel bad about how long a draft is taking you. Thanks so much for stopping by to read. 😀
