The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

Okay, so this is the first blog hop I have become involved in.

What is The Next Big Thing Blog Hop? Well, as an author I post information about a work in progress, giving you a look into what I am doing now as well as give a thank you to the person who told me about it and suggesting other authors. Okay, sounds simple enough! Let’s try this thing:

The wonderful person that tagged my blog is Thianna D! Check out her Hop!

What is the working title of your book?
To be honest, I never title a story until it is complete, so it has the unlikely working title of “story 542”. Engaging isn’t it?

Where did the idea come from for the book?
I loved L’Amore Perfetto and the response to it has been amazing. Since I enjoy writing humor filled, feel-good romances and I enjoyed writing a story about a dating service, this just seemed to work.

What genre does your book fall under?
It all depends on whether I make my character 28 or 16. I haven’t quite decided yet. Either way it will be a romance.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Oh dear. I don’t have any idea. The hero kind of looks like an older Taylor Lautner and the heroine, while I see her in my head – I can’t think of any actress that would be like her.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Kind of depends on the age to be honest. But it will go something like this:
Tired of the dates her sister sets her up with, a young woman gives online dating a try –  completely shocked to find out she has tapped into a paranormal dating service; when it all comes down, can she truly love a man from another dimension?

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I hope to get this one published by a regular publisher. I would like to see it in print, not just in eFormat.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Still writing… and writing… and writing… My heroine is a talkative little thing, but I haven’t had the time to finish it!

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
If I go young adult, I would say Twilight as it has that kind of feel. If not, I have no idea. LOL

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
The reaction to L’Amore Perfetto has been overwhelmingly positive and I still love reading it. I like to write things that I know people will read and re-read for years to come.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
There is a very bad character in this book. Positively evil – and he has had a hold on women in her family for centuries… she just doesn’t know it yet.

Okay, And now for some blogs you should check out because they are written by amazing authors!
