The Next Big Thing

The Next Big Thing - Find Out What I'm Working On!

Michael Mandrake, a talented author that I know, tagged me for this little blog hop. The Next Big Thing is an on-going blog hop in which authors get to talk about their favorite thing: their work, and what their current Work in Progress.

Ten Interview Questions for the Next Big Thing:

~What is your working title of your book?

Moonlit Skies, which I’m co-authoring with Julie Lynn Hayes. 
~Where did the idea come from for the book?
I got Julie intrigued with the idea of aliens, lol, when she was the EIC for two sci-fi books for publication for me.She's also going through a series called The Harvest. And... it went from there.  
~What genre does your book fall under?
M/M science fiction/romance
~Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
For Reed: Ben Barnes from The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
For Taz: Travis Fimmel
~What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A Southern boy in the big city takes in a lost traveler and gets more than he bargained for when he discovers a whole new meaning to out-of-towner.

~Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Hope it will be with a publisher. We’ve submitted the first book in the series called Be My Alien. This cover is a little something Julie made for us.

~How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Ah, maybe 6 weeks. Not really sure, but I can tell you it went fast.
~What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Oh wow, no titles come to mind. But I'd have to say anything having to do with aliens coming to Earth.
~Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Julie is editing a story for me I plan to submit at the end of the year. It has to do with… aliens, lol. She became fascinated with them! 
~What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It’s a love story that takes place over Valentine’s Day.
The people I tagged for this: See? They're waiting on ya'll to check them out, lol! ~M
