I was contacted by the ever lovely and talented Author Melissa Smith (and owner of Hypno Cat) to join her Next Big Thing Blog Tour, and without thinking I said yes. The Next Big Thing Blog Tour is an event that highlights some of the best Indie Authors you may not be reading, and Melissa’s works are very good indeed, check out the interview after the jump.
What is the working title of your next book?
Crossing the Divide
Where did the idea come from for the book?
From the idea of what if. What if what we’ve always known to be true, isn’t.
What genre does your book fall under?
Mystery; Suspense; Thriller
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Oh, wow. I’m only at the beginning of writing it, so I really haven’t given that much thought.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
What if the image on the other side of the mirror is the real one?
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Self-Published as an ebook sometime next year
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I’m currently working on that first draft right now! I’m writing it as I try to tackle NaNoWriMo!
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Again, I don’t know. Alice in Wonderland would be the closest.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
My youngest son. He asked me why I haven’t written anything he would want to read (I normally write paranormal romance) and I’d been toying around with this idea of a parallel world and decided, why not.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Well, of course because it’s one of my books! LOL I’d like to think people will pick up my book because they’re curious about what if too.
Here are the fabulous authors I’ve tagged to tell you about their Next Big Thing!
Please, make sure you check them out next Wednesday!
