Late, but doing Marie Treanor's bidding

THE NEXT BIG THING

I got tagged by about six people, all writers who'd been tagged.  We're talking chain letter promo. I first jumped on and agreed to do it a week after Marie Treanor. I must have meant TWO weeks after.

I'm honored that so many people thought to include me in the Next Big Thing Tag-You're-It party. I can't think of who else to tag, unfortunately. The buck is stopping here. More like petering out...the end of the line. The last of the great big things. 


What is the working title of your book? 
Kenway and Gerard. I'm writing it with Bonnie Dee. That won't be the title.


Where did the idea come from for the book? A panic attack. I was having one and thought it would be interesting if it was actually attached to something real, instead of bad chemicals. So one of our characters has them every time he goes to his family home in the country. 


What genre does your book fall under? 
m/m historical 


Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Ever see Lion in Winter? There's a very young Anthony Hopkins and Timothy Dalton in it and those are our guys. Or maybe a younger Daniel Day-Lewis and Damian Lewis. (the Lewis twins!)


What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
He's come home to face the past and finds a future. 
 

Where do you plan to submit your book, or will you self publish it? 
We talked about publishing it with our usual fabulous publishers (Samhain or Loose Id) but we think we're going to try for self-publishing. Now that we have a back-list, perhaps it will be easier. 


How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Still working on it and we're nearly done.  We should have the first draft done in a month, maybe less. We might not be publishing the traditional way, but we're going to make sure we get the book as close to professionally finished as we can, so we'll hire an editor and a proofreader.


What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
The other Bonnie Dee/ Summer Devon m/m historicals! Intense physical and emotional relationships.


Who or What inspired you to write this book?
The need to write every day? The desire to work with Bonnie again? 

I'd love to work with Marie Treanor. She's one of my fave writers.
 Some day, some day. . .
  

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
 We have a feral child in this book. It's been fun writing a nuisance of a kid who manages to tame two adult men.
