Hi everyone! Rachel at http://spilledxink.wordpress.com/ tagged me in a blog hop with the following questions about my WIP (work in progress)! Thank you so much Rachel!
What is the (working) title of your book?
Here with the Wolves
Where did the idea come from for the book?
For the last six years, I’ve written books all set in the 1800s or medieval times, so I really wanted to make a modern day book, which would require less research and I could include stuff like TV and cars!
What genre does your book fall under?
YA fiction/fantasy (someone called it paranormal because of the werewolves)
Which actors and/or actresses would you choose to play your characters in the movie rendition?
This is one of my all-time favorite questions.
Vanessa “Ness” Vancouver: Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss in The Hunger Games)
Kenneth (pack’s alpha): Jude Law (Dr. Watson in Sherlock Holmes)
Johnny (fellow-alpha): Chris Hemsworth (Thor in The Avengers)
Dustin (fellow-alpha): Liam Hemsworth (Gale in the Hunger Games)
Viviana “Viv” Vancouver: Anna Popplewell (Susan in the Chronicles of Narnia)
Keeton “Kite” Baptist-Murphy: Michael Welch (Mike in Twilight)
Gabriel Trojan: Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian in Chronicles of Narnia)
What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
Humans, wolves, and Slayers are the three species that live on earth: and it is the Slayer’s job to kill wolves and defend mankind, but being a Slayer isn’t all fun and games.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
It will be represented by an agent, I hope.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It took my about seven or eight months, but I was writing a couple other books at the same time.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I think Twilight would be similar, not that there are any vampires, but it’s about teenagers who aren’t completely human.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
That’s a hard question. I guess I just wanted to write a book that a movie could be based off of, something fast-paced and intriguing, but most of all, it was fun and entertaining for me to write.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
All Slayers (werewolf hunters) come from noble/notable bloodlines, Christopher Columbus, Sacajawea, Gorm the Old, Alfred the Great, and St. Patrick to name a few.
