The Next Big Thing Blog Hop:
 Interview Questions:
 
What is your working title of your book?

Ghosts on the Prairies

Where did the idea come from for the book?
Oh a few ghostly places like a conversation with a friend, an image I couldn't shake that's been haunting me for twelve years, a picture that gave me nightmares, and some things inside me that snap when someone puts a keyboard under my fingers.

What genre does your book fall under? Historical Romantic Suspense. Heck yeah.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Well, um... I'd rather ask them first, those hot boys and girls are rather busy these days.
 

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Antoine refuses to leave a woman he loves to a life of slavery, but after fighting Clement for her freedom, will her and her son fit into his world? 
 
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? I'd let my agent handle things. I would if I had one.
 
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? I didn't count the minutes, hours or even days, but I'd say a few weeks. It was a writing binge, so everything is just a blur.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? notaone comes to mind. Go figure. 
 
Who or what inspired you to write this book? My ancestors. They haunt me. Maybe a past life too, hard to say, I was binging at the time.
 
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? Running through tunnels, burning crosses, ghosts in every possible form, churches exploding, bootlegging, drugs, and a romance that haunts my sleep.

Great manuscript plot! I'm VERY jealous that you completed a first draft in just a few weeks!

You don't need their permission to act out your story in your mind's eye. I actually always cast actors (or models) just for consistency's sake. They don't have to like it or even know about it. My first book stars Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman even if they're too busy to know or care. :)
Your book sounds awesome. Seriously intriguing. Thanks for playing!

Thanks for the tag.

Sounds like your book contains every genre known to man, and then some.

lbdiamond said...

Excellent answers--your WIP sounds fascinating!

Teresa Cypher said...

Ooooh, it sounds good, Tanya. And it's one of those stories that burned in you until the words were set down! Cool! :-) :-)

Okay, okay, I'll play.

WIP title: The Woods
The pitch: When Angie Ross’s ex-boyfriend disappears, she fears her sleep-dancing in the woods may have something to do with it. And if she doesn’t uncover the truth, she might lose her new love, her freedom, and her sanity.
