The Next Big Thing Blog Hop Interview with ME!
1) What is the working title of your book?
MY SISTER'S REAPER
2) Where did the idea come from for your book?
I had a vision of a witch who didn't know she was a witch. In my vision, she brought her sister back from the dead, pissing off a Reaper. It took off from there.
3) What genre does your book fall under?
YA Paranormal/Urban Fantasy/Horror
4) Which actors would you choose to play in your movie rendition?
Ooh, fun! Okay, there are four lead roles, but I'll just name two of them, since I haven't found the perfect matches for the other two.
My ideal Zadie would be Kelli Berglund
And my ideal Gavin would be Douglas Booth
Don't they look dreamy together? *sigh*
5) What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
Sixteen year old Zadie brings her sister back to life, inadvertently angering her sister's reaper, now intent on claiming both girls.
6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
My book is being published by Month9Books in May of next year.
7) How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
About seven months (with some breaks in between).
8) What other books would you compare this story to?
I'm sure there must be other Reaper books out there, I just don't know of them. If I were to compare it to anything, I'd have to name the television show Supernatural.
9) Who or what inspired you to write the book?
I blame my muse. Always.
10) What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Well, there are two hot guys in it. How can you resist that? ;)
Now I'm supposed to pass the torch to five other authors. Here's my list:
