The Next Big Thing Back to Blog
Last week, the lovely Vanessa Kelly (author of HIS MISTLETOE BRIDE) tagged me in THE NEXT BIG THING. In THE NEXT BIG THING, tagged authors chat about their current projects. So…here we go.
What is your working title of your book? GLITTER AND GUNFIRE
Where did the idea come from for the book? This book is part of my “Shadow Agents” series for Harlequin Intrigue–I love writing about the dark, dangerous heroes who spend so much of their lives hidden in the shadows.
What genre does your book fall under? Romantic suspense
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Tough call!!! Hmmm…I’d pick Jensen Ackles (from Supernatural) as the hero and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy) as my heroine.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? When Cassidy Sherridan is targeted for death, the one man who can save her life is also the one man she can’t live without…
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? This book will be published by Harlequin Intrigue.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? It usually takes about a month for me to write a draft.
Who or what inspired you to write this book? I’ve always been interested in the “protector” hero idea–and that type of hero is getting center-stage in this novel. But, of course, that doesn’t mean that my heroine is weak (far from it!). She’s a very tricky woman, with plenty of secrets.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? Secrets, death, a hero willing to risk his life for the heroine…lies, betrayal, and a love that can’t be stopped–all are within the pages of this book.
Now, according to the rules of THE NEXT BIG THING, I am supposed to tag five more authors to participate. Only, I’ve been snowed under by the madness of the holidays and writing deadlines, so I didn’t get to contact 5 other writers! Doh! So, if you’re a writer and you’re reading this post, please consider yourself tagged. Next Wednesday, you get to answer the same questions on your blog. If you want me to email the questions to you, I’ll be glad to do so! Just shoot me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great day!
