I was tagged for this interview by an author friend, Anne Holly. I’m always willing to jump in, do something silly, and help my fellow authors and Anne is a great friend, so here I am. :)
What is the working title of your book?
The working title is Marcus. It is because I haven’t come up with the title yet for this book. I know that it is Marcus’s story so hence the hugely exciting name!
Where did the idea come from for the book?
When I finished Protecting His Wolfe, I decided that Marcus and Luke needed their own stories. Jonah, Marcus and Luke are the three Pigg brothers who own and manage the Pigg Detective Agency. It is a play on the story of The Three Little Pigs.
What genre does your book fall under?
My current WIP is a contemporary romance, a twist on an old fairy tale.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Marcus is a fun-loving guy who is always trying to charm the ladies. I could see a guy like Gerard Butler in the role. Red is a strong woman who will do whatever it takes to protect her family. I felt that Anne Hatheway did a great job with that type of character in The Dark Knight Rises and could see her as Red.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A Pigg brother must unite with Little Red Riding Hood to save the day.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Protecting His Wolfe was published by Rebel Ink Press. I really find them to be a wonderful company and would love them to publish this work as well. But we will see. It is too early to tell yet.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Who says I’m done? I’m still working on the story. However Luke keeps popping into my head with his own story and wants that one done first. Who knew that the littlest Pigg would be so demanding!
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Obviously I would compare it to my story Protecting His Wolfe, but I would also compare it to stories like The Bear and Bunny by Eve Langlais. It has crime and capers as well as romance.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I have always loved the different perspectives of fairy tales. I love that the characters can be different animals or even genders. Each change, puts the story into a different perspective that gives the reader a different look on what they know and believe.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
There are guns and evil afoot in the story. Not too mention that romance blooms!
Thanks, Anne, for letting me play along!
Now, “Tag! You’re it!”
