Which one? The most recently “finished” would be False Prophet, which I’m working on rewriting at the moment. I have a couple of WIPs too. No titles.
My boyfriend. Seems weird to call him that because I imagine boyfriends as temporary things, and he’s been hanging around for more than a decade, but that’s a tangent. Kurt and I joke around with story ideas, usually with him tossing out ridiculous ones that are completely unwritable. So he was like “What if you had to eat shit or die, literally?” and the idea was formed. No one eats shit of course, but my brain traveled a winding path from there.
Science fiction, but not science fiction. If pseudo-apocalyptic were a genre, then that would be it. Sci-fi/thriller? I’m not sure. I’ll figure it out before I query anyone.
The logical me sees David Boreanaz playing Rayne, the protagonist, perfectly. However, the romantic me imagines Richard Armitage when I’m writing. As for the “villain” Markos, I would choose…wait, Armitage would play him very well. There, I can have my Boreanaz and my Armitage too.
Plane crashes on a mountain after an asteroid has allegedly wiped out most of the world, and the survival of the passengers depends upon one man’s ability to separate fact from fiction.
I hope it will be represented by an agency. I don’t plan to self-publish.
The first draft? A little over a month. The second, third, fourth and fifth drafts have taken slightly longer.
Um. See, I have trouble with this question when submitting my work because my goal when writing is to make it something that is unique. I know that’s impossible, but I try to write what I’ve never read before, so saying it’s like this book or that feels wrong because I don’t want it to be like anything else. I’m not sure I’d even like the book anymore if I found one that was similar. I don’t want to tell the same old story.
I think I answered that above.
Murder, deceit, humor and sex in the dirt.
Over the next week, take a wander over to these blogs. I’m sure their answers will be more interesting than mine. Or at least, more informative.
