I got tagged in the Next Big Thing Award by my friend Julia the Writer Girl about a month ago. I'm not sure where the "award" part comes in, but I'm supposed to answer some questions and tag other bloggers? Julia's an awesome person, and she's also the only person right now who I would choose to tag for this, so now that I have time, I'm just gonna answer the questions and move on. There's a lots of information about my current WIP focus, #ChosenFourStory, on this website already; as such, I'm going to talk about my upcoming NaNoNovel 2012 instead.
What is the working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from?
A dream, mostly. I've had a few books come to me that way. I have this list of concepts I want to include in future novels, good pieces that showed up in less-decent novels I later trunked. One night, I had this crazy dream, and when I woke up, I was like, That's it! That's how I incorporate all those ideas!
What genre does your book fall under?
It's YA epic fantasy.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?
I don't pick actors for my books. Okay, I have seen a few that I'd like for my male leads at different times, but generally, I stay away from that because the actors get too old pretty quickly, and I'd rather an unknown get the part.
What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
Hmm. I always hate that question. Um... "A girl discovers her legacy as Princess of the Afterworld and must fight against a choice made in the past in order to save her earthly family and return to her birthright home."
Will your books be self-published or represented by an agency?
I'm against self-publishing. That should answer the question.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Seeing as it's not November, I haven't written it yet! Let's answer generally.... hmm, I think the longest it's ever taken me to write a book is four years, a period in which I was working on it on and off. The shortest was a month and a half.
What else about your book would pique the reader’s interests?
Well. It's a combination of Greek mythology, Mormon theology, and demon/angel fantasy. If that doesn't pique your interest, I don't know what to say, haha.
