Tag! You're an Author and You're "IT"
You may know this game, but not played in quite this manner before. So, Tag you're the author who is now "IT". To play this game you have to share your Work in Progress (WIP) or it's a smacked bottom and straight to bed with no supper! Alexandria Szeman tagged me, and these are the rules
Q 1) What is the title (or working title) of you book
The Prophecy Unfolds (Dragon Queen)
Q 2) What genre(s) does your book fall under (or land near really!)
Paranormal Romance, Erotica, Steampunk with werewolves, dragons and their riders
Q 3) What actors would you choose to play the characters in the film version of your book (should you ever, ever get that honour really)
OMG this was such a difficult one to answer really. So many gorgeous actors out there to play my werewolves and dragon riders too!! The heroine would be a good role for Rachelle Lefevre who played Victoria (the baddie vampire ) in Twilight. She looked good with mad red hair. The dragon rider would be a good role for Ian Somerhalder out of Vampire Diaries. The werewolves would be good roles for Alexander Skarsgard and Joe Manganiello from True Blood and finally Stephen Amell out of Arrow could play the main werewolf. OMG my mouth is watering at the mere thought of them all doing the sex scenes lol. Drooling really badly now. For the extras I think I would call upon lots of Steampunk enthusiasts (cheaper that way as they would already have the wardrobe!)
Q 4) What is the main outline for your book? (Alexandria calls it a pitch as a synopsis includes spoilers and I hate spoilers!)
Alex is the heroine who is kidnapped from Earth by three werewolves. The werewolves are called Aston, Leon and Vanda. She then gets abducted by a Dragon Rider called Patros, and his Dragon Talos. The whole story revolves around a 200 year old prophecy.
Q 5) Will your book be Indie published, self published or represented by an agency and sold to a traditional publisher?
Well I am still debating this as I have been approached by a Traditional Publisher who has promised no cost to myself and will promote the book and handle all the advertising for me too. But after hearing so may horror stories I may try to self publish. The jury is still out for that question. Hopefully it will be published this year sometime about June/July time.
Q 6) How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
A little over 6 months I would say. Although it has already changed a little following beta reading and feedback from fellow authors.
Q 7) What other books in this genre would you compare yours to?
That is a difficult one to answer as I haven't really read anything similar although there may be out there somewhere but I haven't come across them yet.
Q 8) Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Strangely enough, dreams mostly! I have dreamt vast portions of this book. on awakening I wrote down details that I could remember as best I could. Keeping a notebook at the side of the bed. They were awesome dreams btw.
Q 9) What else about the book might pique the readers attention?
The book is told in the first person, from the heroine's point of view.
Q 10) Thank goodness!! Phew I've ran as fast as I can and these are the author's I've caught (and any who don't have a Blog of their own are welcome to have a sleepover at mine and post their answers here)
Now for my five victims... erm five other authors who will tell you about their WIP
