I was recently invited to participate in a "blog hop" where I answer some questions and invite others to join, in turn creating a chain of blogs. An author, Olyn Warfield, whom I recently worked with on a collaborative anthology that featured her story invited me to participate, thank you Olyn. Her story is of her Doberman named Omar Blue, his pack, and their adventures in K-9 town. If you have a love of dogs and are curious how they live when we humans are not looking, check out Olyn's work, you will not be disapointed.
I invited a few other writers to join the blog hop, but being so close to the holidays I think they are swamped with work. Instead I will recommend the work of a few writers I had the privilege to work with on Intertwine in hopes that they will take the reins and continue the chain. Brian T Shirley is a comedian and author who writes, you guessed it, comedy stories. I have read multiple stories of Brian's various comedic adventures and guarantee you will have a good laugh.
I also had the pleasure to include one of Beth Gualda stories from her Moonlit Wings novels. I loved the story she submitted to Intertwine. Her stories have a little bit of everything that I enjoy, romance, fantasy, paranormal, sex and humor. Her writing is wonderful and the stories are page turners.
So, if you have a chance check out their work. I believe them both to be up and coming writers that I am very thankful to have worked with.
Now, a little about me [:)]
What is the working title of your book? My first is Neveah A Broken Forever, 2nd Neveah Standing Broken, and the 3rd, soon to be released is Neveah Breaking the Wicked. I also have an anthology, Intertwine, available for download that features some fabulous writers.
Where did the idea come from for the book? The idea for Neveah came to me during one of my many commutes to work. I am lucky to live in a part of the country that has some really beautiful scenery. I am always in awe of the beauty and its image of fantasy so as I was driving I began to weave a story and Neveah is the product.
What genre does your book fall under? Fantasy, Romance with a touch of action/adventure
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? I have thought a lot about this and have a few ideas..so for the main characters I would cast: Lilly, maybe Emma Watson: Shep, Cory Montheith: Annie Levannah, Charlize Theron: Leah, Lauren Grahm: Jax Bane, Johnny Depp: Kelsha, Kate Beckinsal(sp): Denali, Charlie Hunnam: and Serephina, Ariana Garcia..
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? A fantastic journey of discovery, forgiveness, love and betrayal set in a magnificent parallel world called Neveah.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? Self Published, for now...fingers crossed
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? The first book took me three months to write.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? It has the magic of Harry Potter, the romance of Twilight, the suspense and sex of Nora Roberts, as said by a reader.
Thanks for the invite Olyn!
