The Next Big Thing (Week 27)

1- What is the working title of your book?

Lost in Time

2- Where did the idea come from for the book?

I have no idea, it was just in my head begging to be put onto paper.

3- What genre does your book fall under?

There’s lots of action, but ultimately, I believe, it’s a paranormal romance.

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

I think that either father could be played by Billy Connelly and/or and aged Craig Ferguson. I don’t know who I would pick to play the main female character of Elizabeth, but my vision all along was to have Gerard Butler play the main male character of William.

5- What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Love is worth waiting for.

6- Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

I would like to try the traditional route first, but I may consider e-publishing at some point.

7- How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

First draft was about 6 months. It’s taken almost two years to get it where it is now.

8- What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Any of the books by Lynn Kurland and possibly Diana Gabaldon’s but there isn’t near the history content.

9- Who or What inspired you to write this book?

A lifetime dream to write and a bit of inspiration during a very dark point in my life.

10- What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

I think that my story would appeal to many people. It has the classic parts of a love story but with a bit of a different twist.
I think Elizabeth would appeal to women because she’s not that different than most of us. We wish there was a guy waiting out there just for us who will cherish and love us and wait for us. Some of us are lucky enough to find that. Some settle for something less only to be disappointed. Elizabeth is weak, but gains self confidence through trials and when push comes to shove, she’s not afraid to fight for what is hers.
William might come across as a bit of a wuss, but he’s not. He’s strong and has self control, something lacking in alot of guys these days. He’s waited a really long time where most guys would have said, ‘screw that’. He takes his role as protector seriously. Ultimately love wins overall and is worth waiting for 🙂

Tagged for next week (Week 28) are some of my very talented writer friends. Check out their blogs next Wednesday, December 12th, when it’s their turn to post answers to these same questions about their own works-in-progress!
