I want to start by saying thanks so much to Heather Bryant for tagging me! Make sure you guys check out her awesome website, "Into the Cuckoo's Nest"
Now, onto the questions about my WIP. :)
What is the working title of your book?
Haha…Well, a lot of my followers already know, since they helped me choose it. I had three choices but, in the end, I decided to go with: AGAINST THE FALLING MOONS
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I’ve always loved really strong romances and I liked the idea of a guy pining away for the girl he loves, rather than the other way around-- which is more typical for YA. I also really loved the idea of a character who was lost and needed help finding herself. I figured how much more lost could you be than if you came here from a whole other world, but had no idea what had happened? So I put those things together and out came my book.
What genre does your book fall under?
I’ve been querying it as a YA light sci-fi romance. It also has a dash of paranormal and fantasy (although I’m not including that in the query)
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in the movie rendition?
Ha ha...I totally had the cast picked for my first book, right down to minor characters. I haven't done that with Against the Falling Moons but--off the top of my head--I'd say that Fen (still using my fake names because I'm now in the top four kissing scenes at Luv Ya. Yay!) would be played by Zach Efron when he was the same age as in Seventeen Again:
(It's make-believe, so I'm allowed to make him younger.)
Fen's best friend, Sin, would be Logan Lerman:
And, more importantly than any of those, Digger the dog would be played by this big guy:
What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?
When Auri falls through a rip her world and lands on Earth, her memory is erased. Luc risks his life to find her, but she no longer knows him. (I know that's two sentences. I cheated.)
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agent?
I’d love to have an agent but, if push comes to shove, I’m willing to consider other alternatives.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
About six months.
What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
The fact that the so-romantic, extremely-hot Fen is willing to do anything to save the girl he loves, even risk permanent banishment from his home to travel to Earth and find her.
Seria’s the most important part of who I am. There’s no risk I won’t take, no chance, however small, I won’t grasp. If she doesn’t return with me, it won’t matter if I’m banished. Without her, my life seems pointless and purposeless, like I’m nothing but a gaping hole that walks and talks, but holds nothing real inside it.
My turn to pass it on!!
Tag! You're it!
