The Next Big Thing- His Admirer



 The Next Big Thing 

I was recently invited to participate in The Next Big Thing, you may have seen it hopping about on the net or twitter. It's a blog hop of sorts and here's how it works...October 24th, I was tagged in Havan Fellow's post with 3 other writers, my post today which consists of 10 questions about my current WIP tags 4 other writers. 




10 Questions:

What is the working title of your book?

The working title of my book is His Admirer

Where did the idea come from for the book?

Well, the original story came from a picture prompt provided for The Story Orgy by Jade Baiser

What genre does your book fall under?

His Admirer is mm romance, contemporary.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?

Ooh...let's see. I'd like Steven Strait to be Z, and um Chris Hemsworth to be Gabe...

What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?

Love is more valuable than gold.

Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?

It will be neither self published nor represented. It will be published, I hope, by an e-book publisher, Breathless Press

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I wrote it a chapter at a time week by week in response to prompts, so probably about two months.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre.

Er...I think it is a simple, sweet story, and perhaps it's best just to say that it's a typical Lee Brazil book?

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

The Story Orgy inspired this book- every step of the way  with pictures and prompts and encouragement.

What else about your book might interest the reader?

This book almost made it to completion without a bit of sex- I nearly considered making it a young adult story.


Mini-excerpt: 

So I told him. "I’m tired of being taken for granted. I think we need to spend time apart." The son of a bitch just flat out agreed. I think that will haunt me forever. His mellow voice, flat and unconcerned, echoed in my mind at all hours. He never even looked at me; his attention remained on the football game being replayed on ESPN classic. "Okay, Zeke, whatever you want."

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
