I got tagged into the Next Big Thing Award by my friend Julia the Writer Girl about a month ago. Apparently bloggers like to share these tags with each other? Anyway, Julia's an awesome person. She's also the only person right now who I specifically would choose to tag for this, so now that I have time, I'm just gonna answer the questions and move on.
Because there's a great deal of information about my current WIP, the CHOSEN FOUR series, on this website already, I'm going to talk about my upcoming project, my 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 come to me that way. See, I had this whole list of concepts I wanted to include in a future novel, genuine pieces that had shown up in less-decent novels I later scrapped. Then 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 never 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, to help make his/her name too.
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 anti-self-publishing. That should answer that 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 with varied interest. 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.
Thanks Julia! And thanks to all of you for reading! I'll see you Saturday for some opinions on classic literature.
