Ten Interview Questions for The Next Big Thing:
Q:What is the working title of your book?
A: Heated Calls From Change Book #3 of the Dearhart Clan Series
Q:Where did the idea come from for the book?
A: The original premise behind the series started back in June of 2011. It was then that I answered a call out for short stories of a paranormal nature to be placed under one jacket along with multiple authors. They were looking for a 15,000 word limit and although mine was rejected on the basis it was not what they were looking for, I took the idea and started a series that increased in length with each preceding book into the series.
Q:What genre does your book fall under?
A: This question is most definitely under debate (lol). Since I am a nontraditional author, I do not follow most guidelines. Therefore, my books classifications often wonder to a loosely based origin consisting of dark primal paranormal fantasies.
Q: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
A: At this point, I can honestly say I have never thought about it. I think if I were chosen to pick the actual faces, I might turn to my readers and ask them to choose.
Q:What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A: Set free among us they walked along in our world, left to unfurl within the night where they hid their deepest darkest secrets in a quest for what had been lost and now can only be found within the lustful pelts that merge forth as their sought after unions are left spent.
Q: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
A: Most definitely self-published. I am very proud to be an indie author which allows me to wear all the work on my very own sleeves (as well as the oops that may follow…lol)
Q:How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
A: I had average three to six months per each book, just on the writing alone. However, this past year as created a few obstacles for me. Therefore, this last book took me around nine months to write due to my stop and go progress (lol).
Q: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
A: Every book should be opened without hesitation and without fear of recounting a prior tale. Therefore, with that in mind I would hope that my telling is something very different and wish that it would not take away from another’s great adventurous read.
Q: Who or What inspired you to write this book?
A: The blank page has always inspired me more than anything has. For within its never ending borders lies the clearest of peaks in which to rise.
Q: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
A: Far darker than the prior two books of the Dearhart Clan Series, Heated Calls From Change, dives deeper into a world where ‘ever after’ does not seem to exist.
