I'm knee-deep in the last read of my WIP before I submit it to my publisher. My nerves are...well, they're doing something like jangling, quivering, buzzing, freaking out....LOL
I thought today would be fun to participate in a fun bloghop I was invited to join by two other authors:
Here we go:
What is your working title of your book? Family On The Range
Where did the idea come from for the book? I don't know...ideas just show up. :-)
What genre does your book fall under? Inspirational historical romance
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Eeek! That's so hard!! I'm not visual. I do think my hero looks kind of like Brad Pitt. Not sure about the heroine....
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? A reclusive housekeeper defies the employer she's in love with in order to rescue a child.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? Represented by me and submitted to a traditional publisher.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? WAY longer than it should of. *shamefaced*
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Oh dear, that's a tricky one! There are actually a lot of Love Inspired Historicals that have had a bit of suspense to them, and that's what mine is. Mostly a love story but there elements of suspense/mystery.
Who or what inspired you to write this book? What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
The characters probably inspired me. They were part of the cast in Love On the Range and I wanted them to have their own Happily Ever After. :-) I don't know what might pique a reader's interest, but I do think the time period is intriguing. It's set right at the beginning of Prohibition and there was quite a bit of political unrest happening.
I don't have anyone to tag but would love if you'd choose a question or two to answer in the comments. It's a New Year and we're all working on something, I'd bet. What are you working on in this New Year?
