- Tag five other writers/bloggers and add their links so we can hop over and meet them.
#1. What is the working title of your book?
Dragons in Space. I suck at titles.
#2. What genre does the book fall under?
Fantasy/Space Opera mash up.
#3. Which actors would you choose to play your characters for the movie rendition?
For Sonya: Natalie Portman
For Tal: Uma Thurman
For Alvin: Taylor Lautner
For Jelani: Usher
#4. What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
Sonya Lee, a Moon Dragon Rider, takes a group of soldiers and researches to the planet of Chung-sea to investigate an alien outpost where they discover that there is life beyond their solar system and where Sonya begins to unlock the secrets of their new alien neighbors.
#5. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Hopefully, I'll get an agent and be published by one of the Big Five. Nothing wrong with self-publishing, but that would be my last option. Too much work for me. I'd rather be writing.
#6. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Well, the first draft isn't done yet. I started it a year ago for last year's NaNoWriMo. Then I worked on another project for a while and had a baby, so it's taken some time to get back to Dragons. I do plan on having the first draft done by the middle of next year, at the latest. :)
#7. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
The only one I can think of is the Pern series by Anne McCaffrey. If anyone knows of other Fantasy/Sci-Fi mash ups with or with out dragons, I'd love to hear about them.
#8. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Well, my husband always inspires me and encourages me to write. But for this particular story I just got this image in my head of a woman riding on a dragon and looking down at a planet from space. And my brain went, "Oh hell yeah!"
#9. What else about the book might pique the reader's interest?
Well, there are aliens, and space ships, and space battles, and a love story, and political intrigue, and fun characters. Oh yeah, and DRAGONS IN FREAKING SPACE! :D
#10. Tag You're It!
Um.... All the people I know who write and have a blog have already been tagged..... So I open this to everyone. Steal this and pass it on! And then come tell me about it and I'll add your blog link here. :)
