The next big thing

Today,
I’m bringing to you the Next Big Thing. I was tagged by the lovely Yelena Casale. (Check out her Next Big Thing post here). This is the 17th week of this blog hop, designed for writers to connect with readers and reveal a little bit about their current work in progress.

What is the working title of your book?

I know it will be ‘something’ storm, but I haven’t quite decided yet. I’m calling it Vamp 4 (Heart of a Vampire, book 4).

Where did the idea come from for the book?

When I get a book idea, my mind automatically wonders how it could be turned into a series. So, the HoaV series came with an idea for my first couple. In book 4, readers get to know Brandon Wulfgar, one of the Viking twins who guard the vampire king.

What genre does your book fall under?

Vampire paranormal romance

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

Salma HayekThis is hilarious to answer, because I actually have pictures of my characters for my own reference. Brandon Wulfgar would be played by Chris Hemsworth (from Thor of course). Celeste Wilder would be Salma Hayek.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Hmm. I don’t actually have one yet. Okay, made up on the fly: An old-school Viking warrior must convince a mortal detective that the paranormal is real in order to save her family, and her soul.

What do you think? Yeah, needs work.

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

My plan is to self-publish this entire series.

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

I’m writing it right now. I started on October 9th, with the goal to be done before the end of the month… at least with this first draft, LOL.

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

Um, I have no idea. I generally don’t compare myself to other authors. Anyone who’s read the books in this series want to answer?

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

The characters. They’re always the culprits. They get in my head, demanding their story be told and refuse to go away until I comply.

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

I know what I wonder about. How can an immortal vampire and a mortal homicide detective find their happily ever after.

Okay, this was fun. Thanks for listening to me 🙂

For next week (#18) check out who I tagged in The Next Big Thing:

Amber Kallyn’s stop on the Did I notice your book? Hoppity

Did I Notice Your Book Blogfest, October 17, 2012

We all love books, at least I assume since you’re here, you love reading as much as I do.  The rules for this hop were easy.

1) It can’t be my own book

&

2) It can’t be on any bestseller lists

The book I chose is one I’ve read and loved.

Shadow’s Soul by Jami Gray

The Kyn Kronicles – Book 2

Buy Links:
Amazon     B&N

Blurb:

All she had to do was keep one man safe…

Raine McCord has no problem taking down the monsters of the world, it’s one of the reasons she’s so good at her job. So playing bodyguard to Cheveyo, head Magi of the Northwest, as he consults with the Southwest Kyn should be an easy assignment. Unfortunately, the simple task turns into a nightmare when Cheveyo is kidnapped and Raine is left for dead by one of the Kyn’s most feared beings, a Soul Stealer.

The Stealer’s attack leaves lasting wounds, undermining Raine’s confidence as a warrior and damaging her unruly magic. Her ability to heal her mind and spirit hinges on the one man who can touch her soul, Gavin Durand. Compelled to face the emotions raging between them, they must embrace not only their stormy relationship but their evolving magic to escape the twisted threads of murder and betrayal to find Cheveyo.

As Raine and Gavin come together and begin to unravel the complex web of secrets and hidden vendettas haunting the Southwest Kyn, they discover unsettling new truths that threaten their very existence.

Reviews (From Amazon)

I enjoyed the second book of the Kyn Chronicles even more than the first. ” C. R. Adile  |  2 reviewers made a similar statement

Interview with Shane Spencer, the hero of Bloodstorm.

Amber: Hi, everyone. *waves* So glad you could stop by. And thanks for chatting with me and Shane today.

Shane: *Swaggers in and takes off his cowboy hat, then sits across the table*

Amber: Hey, Shane. Thanks for swinging by.

Shane: “No problem.” *Shifts uncomfortably*

Amber: Can I ask you a few questions?

Shane: “You can ask.” *raises an eyebrow as if warning me not to get too personal*

Amber: *Shivers* So you’re an Apache Shaman, right? How does that work?

Shane: “The magic comes from the Earth and is passed down from father to son.

Amber: But you have an older brother who was supposed to inherit, right?

Shane: “Yes.” *Scowls*

Amber: Why do you think it skipped him?

Shane: “Everything comes down to the Fates.”

Amber: And you’re a big believer in fate?

Shane: “The Fates. They like to screw with people, but things generally turn out in the end. My brother will find his path.”

Amber: One can hope.

Shane: *Glowers* “You better make sure it does.”

Amber: *swallows as his eyes heat up and glow golden* I-I’ll try.

Shane: *Nods decisively*

Amber: How do you balance your duties between your tribal obligations, being the town sheriff, and an appointed Keeper of the Peace by the Magic Council?

Shane: “It’s not easy, especially when duties conflict. I guess it’s just doing my best. Being the sheriff in such a small town isn’t hard. Keeping the peace between the werewolves and vampires however…”

Amber: I can imagine. Has it changes since you fell in love with a Vampire?

Shane: *smiles* “Not really. Niki knows where my duties lie. Besides, she’s not on anyone’s side either.”

Amber: What it’s like to have a vampiress as your true love.

Shane: “Niki is stubborn and feisty, but I like that about her. We have a normal relationship, the only difference between us and mortals is she likes to have me for dinner.” *eyes twinkle as if thinking about last night*

Amber: *Grins* How does it feel to have her drink your blood?

Shane: “Delicious.” *voice deepens* “It’s a bond, a connection no mortal could feel.”

Amber: Since you’re not a vampire, how does her strength affect your relationship?

Shane: “It doesn’t. She knows the powerful magic I bring to the table. It’s a non-issue.”

Amber: One of your magics is harnessing the spirit of your totem animal, right?

Shane: *Shifts in the chair * “Yes. I can call on brother bear’s power.”

Amber: *Leans forward* What happens when you do?

Shane: “It’s as if his spirit enters my body. It’s not like a shapeshifter, exactly, though some with spirit vision can see his shape just above my own. He allows me to use his strength.”

Amber: Since both you and Niki are long-lived, tell me how you keep the relationship interesting.

Shane: *Raises his brow again* “With a woman like Niki by my side, things never get dull. She wouldn’t allow it.”

Amber: Could you give me an example?

Shane: “No.”

Amber: *Fidgets under the intense stare* Okay, well thanks for answering some of my questions.

Shane: “No problem. Just remember what I said about my brother.” *After a nod, pushes to his feet*

Amber: Will do. *Watches him swagger away trying not to fan self*
