I've Been Tagged: The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

I have been tagged by my RT Con Pal Katherine Skye for this circulating blog hop. It’s an opportunity to discuss my latest project. Be sure to check out Katherine’s work in progress as well.

     What is the working title of your book? 

       Magnetic Shift

     Where did the idea come from for the book? 

       I’m a NASCAR junkie and they always tell us writers to write what we love. :)

     What genre does your book fall under? 

       Young Adult Paranormal Romance

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

       Not sure, but I did write this story while hubby was deep into playing Resident Evil 6, the video game. So the hottie in my story closely resembles Leon Kennedy from those games… lol

     What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? 

       A teenage girl adamant about keeping her magnetic ability a secret must embrace her emotions and her ability and risk exposing herself to save the boy she loves.

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

       I will be seeking agent representation for traditional publishing.

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

       Three weeks for the first bone dry draft… much longer to revise and edit though. Still working on it.

     What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

       Not sure…

     Who or What inspired you to write this book?

       My dreams, my need to write, my love of the sport and my hubby

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

       It’s a paranormal set in the world of NASCAR with a yummy stock car driver. What more could a girl want? :)

Now for step two of the blog hop, it’s my turn to nominate 5 wonderful writers. But the ones I know have already participated. I’ve nominated 1 awesome writers and I’m leaving it open for anyone else to join in.
