The Next Big Thing...hey! Eyes Up...hehe

Well lo and baby sweet lovey lady Allison Cassatta has done gone and called my assets out. It's all okay though...cuz that hottie can do anything she wants to my assets *winks and nods knowingly*

So—what is this Next Big Thing you ask? Well...someone answered the questions below *points below* and then threw four of their friends under the which those four answered the questions *still pointing* and repeated the whole tossage of friends thing...and so on and so forth...*breaths deeply*...and now Allison was put in that bus pile and has proceeded to drag me in with her (I think it's because she likes to cuddle with me...I'm quite cuddable you know...hehe)

So here I am with these 10 questions I have to answer about my current WIP...and then I get to bring four of my friends along for the crazy ride...woo hoo!!!!

I'm answering these questions in reference to my story being edited right now...because technically that is a work in progress still...*big smiles*

*cue spooky music* is Halloween time...muahahahahah
The Questions

What is the working title of your book?
Wish Me Nothing

Where did the idea come from for the book?
I was talking to my muse...we're members of the Story Orgy and our group wanted to do something paranormally for October last year...I always wanted to explore the old school Djins—the type that aren't all sweet and happy and doing for people because they can...Wish Me Nothing is the first in what will be a series of Djin is actually just a short novella—but it gets your feet wet with the way the series will happen...and these Djin may not be openly evil...but they aren't ones you'd dream about either...hehe

What genre does your book fall under?
we've got paranormal happening here...but it may dabble into fantasy slightly...those two genres are close cousins in my opinion

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?

Oh yeah...there is my Shan...hehe
Oh boy... I couldn't say Ar and Vaughn off the top of my head...but Shan, well I think I could so see Dwayne Johnson as Shan—Shan is a smart asset Djin with great comedic all honesty he seems like the wiry type because of his light, humorous personality...but his human form looks a lot like his brother Ar, big and muscular. Dwayne Johnson really has the smile that Shan would give you when he called you his little chocolate truffle while feeding you to the beast...*shakes head giggling*...oh and he would rock the dreads/braids when he Djin'd out...totally hehe

What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?
Whatever you do, don't say "I wish".

WIll your book be self published or represented by an agency?
Breathless Press is publishing it

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Can't say for sure—I wrote it as a blog story for the Story best guess would be about 8 weeks...but that soooooo isn't counting rewrites and edits...lmao

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I'd shy away from comparing my book to any other book for some very simple reasons...I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to up my ego with the pecking game, I'm not better than anyone else or worse, I'm me...and there are so many different stories out there, plenty for all the diverse readers, that it seems unfair to limit any of them with a

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I've always liked paranormal...and I love the idea of making a world that I'm the grand poobah of...feel my power minions...*throws head back and cackles* um...that is until Shan starts jabber jawing in my head reminding me who actually calls the shots *heads desk giggling*

What else about your book might interest the reader?
Not only is this the first book in the Djin series...this is also the first book in a collection I'm doing that adds other series in it...a paranormal world to visit and enjoy—where the heroes are not always good but they always do satisfy...*winks*

Well…was it good for you too? You know…rooting around in my mind like that? Hey! I've gots a smexy mind…the voices say so all the time…*giggles*

Now for the fun part…time to bring my friends to the party! Next week we'll get to visit their pages and see what they are up to! Because that is the next big thing! hehe…So let's see…*picks up megaphone and smiles all big Cheshire cat like*

(my amazing muse…*holds closely*)
(Raven and Havan…hehe…we've been in a tree together *winks*)
S.A. Reid
(simply beautiful…*sighs*)
(she allows me to stalk Shelton…*swoons*)

  1. I'm really looking forward to reading this book! It sounds like that whole 'be careful what you wish for' thing happening. And I love that cover! Thanks for dragging me into The Next Big Thing!
