I’ve been tagged by the lovely Lauren M. Barrett, who I met during WriteOnCon and who’s also participating in GUTGAA.
So although I’m no longer actively participating, I thought I’d answer the questions for my MANY new bloggie friends. Thanks for following, by the way! X
Also, because this tag has been going around, I’m just going to open it up to whoever wants to answer one or two questions in the comments section.
What is the working title of your book?
I’m assuming this refers to the book I entered into GUTGAA. It’s called Doorways.
It’s actually quite a punny title, but you’d have to read the book to know why…
Where did the idea come from for the book?
Well… I was reading Chronicles of Narnia and Darrion (one of the main characters) appeared and refused to leave unless I paid attention. Actually he lied. He never left after 6 years.
What genre does your book fall under?
YA/NA Epic Fantasy. I name both because the story seems to lie comfortably on the cusp.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Can’t really tell you. My characters walked in pretty much fully formed, so they look like themselves and no one else. Would be a bitch to cast them.
What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
When sixteen-year-old Callan Blair ends up in a fantasy world and meets her last remaining relative, she has to choose between loyalty to her family and staying true to herself.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
…. That still depends.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Four and a half years. I was at University for most of it. Rewrites took a year and edits and revisions another.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Mmm… interesting and complex characters. One hell of a plot. 😉
Okay your turn… Pick a few questions and answer in the comments section. Pretty please?
