I got tagged by Anne Michaud in The Next Big Thing Blog Tag and I’m happy to play along. Please stop by Anne’s blog and read all about her. She has a book release coming up early in the new year and her website is well worth a read.
Without further delay, here is my required Q&A:
What is the working title of your book? The Curse of Sight
Where did the idea come from for the book? I’ve wanted to write a book about a guitarist in a band for a long time now and I can’t write anything without a creepy element so I mixed the two.
What genre does your book fall under? YA Paranormal Thriller
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Easy! Their pictures are in their character profiles. Kaya Scodelario and Chase Crawford (even though I’m usually inspired by characters with black hair, not blonds).
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? The only way Patrick can get the strange visions out of his head is to write them into his lyrics but when the horrors of his songs come true and he becomes the main suspect, Elsa has the answers he needs to understand his abilities and clear him of the crime he’s accused of committing.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? Good question!
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? I just started and I’m on target to finish in January 2013.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? It’s like the Darkest Powers trilogy by Kelley Armstrong in that my character also has a paranormal ability that he doesn’t understand but it’s different because there is a crime solving element.
Who or What inspired you to write this book? Music. I love characters who use art to express their pain and suffering.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? While it’s not central to the plot, the book will carry a strong theme of romantic tension because after all, I am its author and I love that stuff.
In the spirit of this blog tag, it is now my turn to nominate other bloggers. I hope they will answer these questions and share their WIP’s with us:
Please stop by their blogs and learn more about them and their projects.
