What is the working title of your book?
Already spilled that one.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
Hmmm... should I admit this? Haven't shared this before. So, I had read Twilight recently (no, don't groan, it's not going in the direction you think it is). And suddenly this voice just pops into my head and starts chattering away. Since Twilight is all about a 17-year-old falling in love so desperately she wants to become immortal to stay with this person, the sarcastic voice in my head wanted to know what happens when you're so sure of something, and you become immortal - and then you get dumped and have to spend eternity contemplating your stupidity. So, it was around this loud, sassy, sarcastic voice that the whole story was born. Zyan would simply not leave me alone.
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Actually, you can see my characters on my Pinterest board for Martinis here.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Haven't really polished my one-liner yet, so this is a bit rough: A rogue witch/vampire must choose between the revenge she's sought for over 200 years and working within the law to save the planet from a demon invasion.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Repped by an agency I hope. I'm still working on that :)
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
It has some of the snark of the Anita Blake series, but without the (IMO) over-the-top sex and violence that developed later in the series.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Kind of covered this above - I guess you could say it was Twilight in a way. Mostly my main character bugging me relentlessly until I wrote her story.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Martinis is a fun, sexy, fast read. It has a great mix up vamps, witches, shifters, weres, faeries, angels, demons and even cyclops. I've had a lot of people that have read an excerpt say they loved it even if they're not usually fans of fantasy or vampire books.
So, that's it for my answers! I have tagged my dear blog friend Rachna Chabbria for next week's post! Please go see her post next week, and don't forget to check out my tagger Yelena, especially if you like urban fantasy.
Hope everyone has a rad week!
