I’ve been tagged by Sandy Wright for The Next Big Thing Blog Hop, where new releases and new authors get highlighted. Sandy’s SONG OF THE ANCIENTS, is a Paranormal Suspense currently making the rounds in finding a publishing home. Feel free to check out her blog at www.writersandy.com for all the nifty details on her first book.
So since I’m it, let’s get to it!
- What’s the title/working title of your latest book?
For those that are following, we’ll do SHADOW’S MOON, because I’m keeping my current WIP under wraps for a bit.
- Where did the idea for the book come from?
This will be the third in the Kyn Kronicles, but this time I decided to leave Raine and Gavin alone to take advantage of some downtime. Instead I got caught up in Xander and Warrick’s relationship. I’ve always loved the concept of magic and the supernatural existing alongside reality, so the world I created has some dark corners that you don’t want to face without a sharp, pointy object. For SHADOW’S MOON, I wanted to explore the relationship between the most dominant male wolf in the Northwest and his top female enforcer, Xander. What happens when two strong personalities meet? Do they bend, break or create something new? SHADOW’S MOON continues the twists and turns of the Kyn universe, but also allows the readers a chance to see the world through the eyes of the Shifter House. Plus the sparks from Xander and Warrick were a blast to maneuver through.
- What genre does your book fall under?
Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
- What’s a one sentence synopsis for your book?
As the Northwest Alpha wolf, compromise isn’t in Warrick Vidis’s vocabulary, but when his reluctant mate, Xander Cade, refuses to leave off the hunt for the one threatening their pack, will he be able to bend before they both break?
- How long did it take to write the first draft of the manuscript?
It took me about 4 1/2 to 5 months to get through the first draft. Then another month or so to fine tune it.
- Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Currently it is under consideration by a handful of publishing houses/agencies, so fingers crossed one of them picks it up.
- What other books would you compare this book to in your genre?
Hmmm…think Ilona Andrew’s Kate Daniels series or Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson or Alpha and Omega series.
Since I like to share the spotlight, here are my “MUST READ” new authors! Swing on over and check them out!
