I have been tagged by the dark and marvellous Anne Michaud for this new circulating blog hop. It’s an opportunity to discuss my latest project, which I’m very excited to do because it’s new. Be sure to check out Anne’s work in progress as well – it sounds amazing!
What is the working title of your book? Under the Green Light
Where did the idea come from for the book? Recent personal experienced tied in with some day job experiences.
What genre does your book fall under? A bit out of the recent norm for me, but actually going back to my first written ms – good old traditional literary fiction.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Haven’t given this one much thought yet. I’m sure it’ll come to me in time and I reserve the right to update this post once it does.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? Four estranged sisters come together to honour their father’s deathbed request.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? I will give this question some very serious thought once I finish it.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? I will give this question some very serious thought once I finish it. …
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells and maybe Fannie Flagg’s Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
Who or What inspired you to write this book? Once the characters came into my head, I had no choice but to move forward with it. Then I found a model for the perfect cottage setting and now it’s the place that won’t leave my mind.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? It’s a story about life and all of the necessary traumas (family dinners, learning to swim, death of a parent) that go with it. I think everyone should be able to find something to relate to.
For step two of the blog hop, it’s my turn to nominate 5 wonderful writers. Be sure to check out what they’re working on next!
