Next Big Thing: Find out what my next book is
The Next Big Thing
1- What is your working title of your book?
"From the Depths."
2-Where did the idea come from for the book?
Silver publishing had a submission request called a different kind of love. It involved characters who have physical or mental challenges. My story deals with something very personal to me, depression.
3-What genre does your book fall under?
it's a m/m contemporary story.
4- Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
There are two TV actors who I think would do a great job. Stephen Amell (he plays the Green Arrow on "Arrow" ) and Josh Dallas (he plays Prince Charming on "Once Upon a Time.")
5- What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Can someone struggling with depression find a way to be happy?
6- Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
This book is published by Silver Publishing (all of my books are published by wonderful publishers)
7- How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It took about a month to get this story together, this had to be one of the hardest books to write because I put alot of my own feelings and some events into the story.
8-What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
"Falling into Place" by Tia Fielding (available at Dreamspinner Press)
9- Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I was inspired by my desire to address what can happen within the mind of a person with depression. I want people to have a better understanding of what self image is like for someone with depression.
10-What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
My main character is able to find someone who loves him warts and all.
