I've Been Interviewed

Ten Interview Questions for the Next Big Thing:

What is your working title of your book? 
Head Over Heals


Where did the idea come from for the book?
J made me do it when we were watching the Olympics this summer.

What genre does your book fall under?
contemporary. 
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? 
not sure about the girl, but i really like the dude who played Thor. :)


What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? 
How it happened, Zechariahs didn't know, but he was head over heals in love with Natalia.


Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? 
It will be published by Beautiful Trouble Publishing once completed.


How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? 
Too damned long. But altogether, maybe two months. (almost finished...)


What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? 
I'm not really sure I know of any. It's not what I'd call unique, but he's a construction worker and she's a gymnast. *shrugs* :D


Who or what inspired you to write this book? 
Well, the Olympics, obviously, but I was reading an article about a woman in her late 30's who competed in like a gazillion Olympics representing three different countries, all Eastern European, including the USSR. She represented Germany four years ago, but didn't make the team this past summer. One of the only modern competitive gymnasts I've ever heard of competing at that level at her age.


What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? 
It's sexy. :D

I tagged these authors because they're all fantastic and I usually make it my personal mission to torment them. :D

  1. Ok, that's definitely different to me. The gymnast was doing because she needed to make money for her son's cancer treatment, if I remember. I can just imagine the zingers that he'll be making about her flexibility and bed..lol! Sounds hot!
