Blog Hop


Week 23: THE NEXT BIG THING BLOG HOP

So, what am I doing with this? I’m going to let the very articulate Victoria Roder explain this one.

The past few years have been full of high profile reads—50 Shades of Gray, Twilight, and more. Love them or hate them, you have to admit you have at least heard of them.

As Independent Authors we all dare to dream we will be next, and well let’s face it, you never know … right?  With some hard work and the right marketing any one of us could be the next most talked about Author.

With that thought I jumped on this Hop, what is a blog traffic hop? Well I didn’t know until I asked.

Basically, it’s an Independent Authors game of tag.

One author posts, and then tags five other authors, who each link back to them. Exponentially it is a marketing gold mine, and you my fair reader have hopefully just increased your to read list. Finding new and exciting authors you may never have found otherwise. Some of us are still writing, others are just being released. 

Either way, for you Fiction Lovers, a treasure trove awaits and I’d like to thank fellow Author Victoria Roder for tagging me to participate.

In this particular hop I and my fellow authors each in their perspective blogs have answered 10 questions where you get to learn about our current WIP (Works in Progress) as well as some goodies as to our process, from characters and inspirations to photographic/cinematic eye candy! I hope you enjoy it!

If this or any other items pique your interest, please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and questions.”

Without further ado, here are my questions answered…

HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS

1: What is the working title of your book?

Right now? The War of Faith. Mind you, it’s been a WIP since I was 15, so I guess a better title would be ‘The Time-waster Project: A study in 10 years of novel evolution.’

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

Bitzah. Bitzah this and bitzah that.

3: What genre does your book fall under?

Historical romantic sci-fantasy western with a dash of horror-thriller-erotica. It’s a series about gods and men, women and elementals. It has everything. And when it has nothing, that’s what you call ‘high-art literature’.

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

Hmm… Keridwen/Electra would be me (honestly, who could get down the sass you need for Keridwen, if not for me? Or maybe Emma Stone…). Thor/Khan would be… that guy from Game of Thrones, king of the horsey-people. Yeah, him. And the others are bit-parts that I haven’t really thought about yet. I spend enough time-wasting for my quota on the actual story :)

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

“When the world ends, what would you really believe in?” or, for the alternate-title, “How story telling evolves from half-hidden fanfiction into an okay story.”

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

Holly Hunt will be representing it. As for where it will be published… I think ‘When’ would be a better question.

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

Aah…. still going at 8 years.

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

Eragon, Game of Thrones, Jericho and the bible rolled into one (without the boring bits). Or a game of D& D. either way.

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

Bad writing :)

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

As you read through, keep an eye out for your favourite figures and stories from world religions, small religions and fictional religions. The series is an excercise in seeing how they’re all intertwined in reality (or as close to reality as the Gods’ Realms can get with all the nuts over there).

 

Below you will find authors, who will be joining me by blog, next Wednesday. Do be sure to bookmark and add them to your calendars for updates on WIPs and New Releases! Happy Writing and Reading!!
