The Next Big Thing…

Standard

Eep! I’ve been tagged by Patricia Lynne to take part in the Next Big Thing, where authors get to talk about their work in progress. I have to answer then questions and then tag another five authors. So here goes!

Questions:

What is the working title of your book? Staying Alive (Life & Death, book 2)

Where did the idea come from for the book? It’s a sequel to my first book, Near Death.  There wasn’t originally going to be a second book, but a friend expressed how she’d love to see more of a certain character and so I got the idea to age them and bring them all back!

What genre does your book fall under? It’s YA, but I tend to dub it contemporary fiction with a paranormal twist

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?  oooh this is hard.

Maybe some Alexander Pettyfer for Jackson? (although he might be a bit too old)

How about Carlos Pena for Gabe?

Sterling Knight for Chris(toph).

Victoria Justice for Marisol.

Eri Tokunaga for Aya.

I think Dianna Agron would make a good Sarah.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?  GAH! Only one sentence? *sigh*

Depression sucks college student Jackson Moore into a pit of despair, but his Guardian Angel must keep him alive until he completes his purpose in life.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?  It will be self published since the first book in the series was as well.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? Umm..I’m still writing it? Hah! It’s almost done. The majority of it was written in a month.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Good question! I’m uhh..not sure?

Who or What inspired you to write this book?  My friend who wanted to read more when she was done with Near Death!

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? It’s a book about struggling with guilt and insecurity in life, school and relationships. The paranormal twist keeps it interesting and suspenseful as the reader won’t know exactly where it’s heading until it gets there.
