The Next Big Thing

Thanks so much to AM Griffin for tagging me in this game, The Next Big Thing
 Writing can be a solitary business, and I’ve found this game useful because I can follow each author’s tags, and trace the authors who have tagged them. It also gave me an opportunity to extend the opportunity to other authors.

The Next Big Thing is a game where authors spend a bit talking about their books, works-in progress, likes and dislikes.

Here is the link for AM Griffin. Don’t forget to check it out. She’s an awesome writer and great talent. Her first book will be out soon through Ellora's Cave, and it absolutely ROCKS! 




So, let’s get to it!

The Next Big Thing... 

 Bound at the Ball

What is your working title of your book?

Bound at the Ball


Where did the idea come from for the book?

Actually, this book was started as a really sexy, smutty version of Cinderella, but the characters wouldn't let me go that way with it. So, it ended up a sci-fi, BDSM-lite book.

 
What genre does your book fall under?

Sci-fi, BDSM-lite, Erotic Romance


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

Oh, geez... I'm never good at picking actors. But, Sabar is a warrior of the highest caliber, and hot, of course. Rella is a spitfire with long black hair. You can pick actors for me if you'd like. LOL


What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Rella, born to a submissive race, has caught the eye of Sabar, a dominant warrior.


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

I'm hoping for Ellora's Cave to pick it up, but its still sitting with my editor. *crossing fingers*

 

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

 Honestly, I usually have a couple going at the same time, so perhaps 2 months.

 

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
 There have been lots of fairytale spin-offs, but I think I did a unique twist to mine.

 

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
 Cinderella is the inspiration for this book, but the characters drove it.

 

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

It's got everything. Evil sisters, lots of sexy interactions, a servant bent on hurting Rella...

 

Now for those I tagged. Be sure to check out their The Next Big Thing Blog the week of November 19, 2012.
