THE NEXT BEST THING, #3
Tagged by my dear blogging friend, Cher Green, Footsteps of a Writer, I’m pleased to present you with THE NEXT BIG THING.
10 Questions about my Work in Progress:
What is the working title of your book?
One Wrong… (as in one wrong don’t make a right)
What genre does your book fall under?
What actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
For Jason Sinclair, I’d choose David Duchovny or Anson Mount:
Mike Canaday: aka David Cubitt
And Brigitte would be portrayed by
What is the one sentence synopsis for the book?
Jason Sinclair doesn’t believe his wife’s death was an accident and is bent on risking his life to prove it.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I’ll try traditional first because self-publishing can get expensive, not to mention the hassle with distribution. It’s a lot easier to have the publisher pay to have the book printed and distributed. At least that’s been my experience.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It’s taken me forever just to write 50K. At this rate I should have the 1st draft done by the end of 2013. Slow writer is an understatement.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Get Carter, strange choice but I see the similarities. Despite everyone convinced it was an accident, Carter investigates his brother’s death and discovers it was murder.
What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?
First I love my characters. They’re ordinary people (endearing) caught up in extraordinary circumstances. I even like my antagonist Junior O’Malley. The entire cast is very family-orientated.
Second, the settings are spectacular. If you’ve never been to Vancouver’s Gastown, I hope you enjoy the tour. As I’m sure you will in Stow-on-the-Wold.
Now it’s time to tag a few authors and see what their next big thing will be: (if your name’s below and you’d rather not participate, not to worry)
