Thanks to the delightful author of Elixir Bound, Katie Carroll, I have been tagged to participate in this blog hop! You really should take a peek at Katie's post too--all sorts of fun things about her next book!
ALSO: there's a giveaway for a copy of Colors Like Memories going on at Fictional Candy here :)
So, here goes nothing:
What is the working title of your book?
>I'm debating about what book to talk about--I kind of have several irons in the fire at the moment :) But, I think I'm going to stick with my forthcoming release for next April: THE CHEMISTRY OF FATE.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
>It's a mash-up of a whole lot of different things, though journaling lies at the heart of things. I've always loved writing in my journal, so that coupled with the world of the Sary from Colors Like Memories all wound together in a giant mess.
What genre does your book fall under?
>YA/New Adult. The characters are in college, so it's in that terrifying territory that's above YA and not really "adult". Because apparently I have a marketing death wish.
What actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
|This pic really reminds me of them :)|
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
>“They are everywhere, can be anyone, and are always the last person you’d expect.” (Yeah, that kinda needs some work!)
Will you book be self-published or represented by an agency?
>It will be published through the same house as Colors--the awesome MuseItUp Publishing house :)
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
>I first wrote this as a novella, and that took me a couple of months (it was only 30k). Revising the crap out of it and making it into an actual novel-length book? That took about four months or so.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
>I'm going to go with Tempest by Julie Cross and Peeps by Scott Westerfeld. Chemistry of Fate is told in dual POV with Tom and Ari, and set in college. I really need to spend some time digging into more New Adult books!
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
>There were a lot of different things: journaling, the Sary world, and the desire to escape back to their world :)
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
>Okay, I'll admit it, I'm really nervous about the ending. It's *way* different from anything I've ever done, so we'll see if anyone even likes it. Eeep!
So, I'm supposed to tag some people to hand off the blog hop onto, but I'm seriously all kinds of bad at that. Anyone looking to be tagged for next Wednesday?? Pretty Please!
