My Next Big Thing

I've been asked by the lovely Lacey Thorn to take part in the Next Big Thing blog hop - so I'll be answering a few questions about my WIP, and I've tagged a few more authors to do the same. You can see their posts next week Wednesday.

What is the working title of your next book?

Romany Nights: Gypsy Wolf.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

I’ve been fascinated with gypsies ever since I was a little girl, and I’ve always wanted to write a historical gypsy story – adding shifters seemed like a natural step.

What genre does your book fall under?

Historical, Erotic Romance and Shape-shifter…I like to cover all my bases. ;)

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Definitely Colin O’Donohue and Sophia Myles – they’re perfect for Misha and Catherine.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your books?

In the course of escaping from a betrothal she doesn’t want, Lady Catherine of Wiltshire falls into the arms of Misha, a wandering gypsy with a dangerous secret.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

It will be published by Resplendence Publishing.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I’m still working on it, so...lemme get back to you on that.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Bride of the Wolf by Abigail Barnette and Coyote Law by Kris Norris.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

My favorite stories involve the magical world colliding with the mundane. Typically, the stories I write are contemporary paranormal, but I really wanted to do a paranormal historical. Add in gypsies and shifters and it was a premise I couldn’t pass up.  

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Let’s see…it’s the beginning of a brand new series that’s full of breathless romance, adventure and a whole new cast of characters to fall in love with.

Here are some wonderful authors I’ve tagged to tell you about their Next Big Thing! Visit them on December 19th and see what’s coming up for them.
