The Next Big Thing

Ten Interview Questions For The Next Big Thing

What is the working title of your book?

Ransom (The Diamond Mini-Series, Book 3)

Where did the idea come from for the book?

The Mini-Series developed from writer's block. I was working on my full length novel Winter Rayne and couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. I thought of the idea, ran it by my oldest daughter, and here we are on #3.

What genre does your book fall under?

YA/fiction/dystopian

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

Diamond- Kristina Akheeva
Obsidian- Cody Longo
Mica- Mackenzie Foy
Gypsum- Robbie Amell (with contacts)
Azure- Louis Hunter
Amber- Tiffany Dion

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

When one of the group members is kidnapped and the core is the ransom, how will they ever find Diamond to get the core back in time to save a life.

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

Self-published

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

I don't know. I tend to go back and edit as I write. So I can't really give a time frame. I can tell you that I started in July.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I haven't really read any books like these, but there is a new TV series this fall called "Revolution" that is very similar to the idea behind The Diamond Mini-Series.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

It was an idea that came to me when I had writer's block.

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

It's not only a story of survival, it's a story demonstrating that sometimes family isn't always blood related. Don't miss the print version coming in October!!
