My fab friend Gill Hoffs invited me to participate in this fun blogging round robin game of tag!
It's great because it gets me blogging again sooner than I planned and it gets me thinking about my current project in the same way a reader might....well....what exactly makes my current project interesting? lets see!
Gill can be found here. GO! Read!!! She is FAB (honestly):
What is the working title of your book? Harbinger or Death’s Door, can’t decide at this point.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
What genre does your book fall under? YA sci-fi/dystopian fantasy
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Ohhhh, great question!! Definitely NOT Kirsten heavy-breather Stewart. Maybe Emmy Rossum (a few years ago) as Rosie, but just bare faced with freckles and her hair plaited all messy. Evan…hmmm maybe Adam Brody, and Finn is definitely Zach Roerig. (Problem is, the fellas I find sexy are too old to be my characters ....Hugh Jackman or Robert Downy Jnr as late teens/ early twenty somethings???)
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Well, I have a book under consideration with a publisher at the minute so hoping they will want both of them! (are you listening universe?)
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
The first draft is currently 36k but it should be completed at the end of Nanovember! (National Novel Wtiing Month-www.nanowrimo.org/ )
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Arrrgggh no idea. It’s dystopian ,and fantasy so maybe lovers of Divergent or the Hunger Games might like, (or heaven forbid it would ever be that good, Patrick Ness) it but it is very different, and there are definitely no vampires.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Reading Patrick Ness- The Knife of Never Letting Go. I just fell in love with that book & the ones that followed, although mine is very different. It's more about the 'feel' and the idea of being young but still having power when a situation seems desperate or out of your control.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It has a teeny tiny teenage girl who can summon volcanoes, grow roses with her tears and who can either make it snow or start fires depending on who’s kissing her.
Oh! And read Patrick Ness- he's amazing. www.goodreads.com/author/show/370361.Patrick_Ness
