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 bus...to 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* hey...it is Halloween time...muahahahahah
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 books...it 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?
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 Orgy...my 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 comparison...lol
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*)
(she allows me to stalk Shelton…*swoons*)
