My author friend Michelle Diener was nice enough to ask me to participate in The Next Big Thing, in which authors talk about their latest projects. Michelle’s new book is The Emperor’s Conspiracy, and you can check out her post over at Magical Musings. Thanks, Michelle!
And here is some info about my next book:
Where did the idea come from for the book?
What genre does your book fall under?
Young adult urban fantasy
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I think Emma Watson would be good as my heroine, Gwen Frost, and I like Ian Somerhalder for my hero, Logan Quinn.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Gwen Frost is put on trial for crimes she didn’t commit and has to figure out how to prove her innocence – or face the consequences.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I am represented by Annelise Robey at the Jane Rotrosen Agency. The book will be out on Dec. 24 from KTeen (Kensington).
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It usually takes me a couple of weeks to write a very rough draft. Then, I go back and spend several months adding to and revising that first rough draft.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I’ve always been interested in mythology and all the stories of the gods, goddess, warriors, and creatures going on these epic quests and battling each other. One day, I thought it would be cool to write a young adult series with mythology. So that’s what I did.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It’s about myths, magic, and monsters.
