The Next Big Thing Blog Hop March 14, 2013

Welcome to the Blog Hop!

What is a blog hop? Basically, it’s a way that readers can discover new authors, because with bookstores closing and publishers not promoting new authors as much, we need to find a way to introduce readers to authors the may not see in their local bookstore.

Here you have the chance to find many new authors. You’ll find information about me, my blog, and my book. But that’s not all! Also see links below to other authors you might like to check out.

I’d like to thank fellow author A. Wrighton for tagging me to participate. Here are links to A. Wrighton’s blog, facebook, and the sire for the Dragonics & Runics Series.

In this particular hop, I and my fellow authors, in their respective blogs, have answered 10 questions where you get to learn about our current work in progress as well as some insights into our process, from characters and inspiration to plotting and cover decisions. I hope you enjoy it.

Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and questions. Here is my Next Big Thing!

  1. What is the working title of your book?  Unraveling the Aquatically Positive.

  2. Where did the idea come from for the book? I love aquatic life. It sparks a poetic side in me.

  3. What genre does your book come under? Silly Positive Poetry

  4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? I don’t have a movie in mind for this book, but all the creatures in the book are named after some characters. Mr.Beaker, Albert Einstein, Puff the Magic Dragon, Scarlet O’Hara, Patrick (from Sponge Bob), the list goes on.

  5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? This book is a silly view on silver linings and peace.

  6. Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency? It will be self-published more then likely.

  7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? This book is still in progress.

  8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Not sure an exact book this is like. The idea is very childish and lighthearted though.

  9. Who or what inspired you to write this book? The Fish Tank room we have progressively created.

  10. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? I am really working on some poems that bring a smile to your faces and your hearts.

Below you will find authors who I follow. Check them out, they may be joining me on this fun adventure.

Happy Writing and Reading!!
