A game of TAG...

Tag! You're an Author and You're "IT"

You may know this game, but not played in quite this manner before. So, Tag you're the author who is now "IT". To play this game you have to share your Work in Progress (WIP) or it's a smacked bottom and straight to bed with no supper! Miss Scarlett Flame tagged me, and these are the rules
  • Give credit (including URL/link) to the person or Blog that caught you and who made you "IT" I was caught fair and square whilst running away.
  • Play by the rules - no pinching, kicking, spitting, Chinese burns, crying and definitely no tantrums! Which also means you must post the rules
  • You must answer 10 questions about your current WIP, no matter the genre, because possibly we may like to get to know each other a little better (to be honest it's only 9 because  as the 10th question is really only the next step)
  • List 5 other authors or Bloggers with their hiding places (URL/Links) so that they can be chased down and made "IT" so we can all go home now we've finished playing. Go in, eat supper, and check out THEIR books.
Q 1) What is the title (or working title) of you book?

RETURN (The Evolution Trilogy)
Q 2) What genre(s) does your book fall under?

Paranormal Romance & Suspense, New Adult, Science Fiction

Q 3) What actors would you choose to play the characters in the film version of your book?

I'll give this a stab... but I might suggest different ones tomorrow! LOL

Steven Thorn - David Boreanaz
Caitlin Chance - Emma Stone (with red hair as she looked in THE HELP movie!)
Ingrid Clausen - Katherine Heigl
Lucy Santos - Minnie Driver
Ian Roberts - Chris O'Donnell
Catherine Roberts - Nicole Kidman
Q 4) What is the main outline for your book?
It is the finale of The Evolution Trilogy...

Readers will find out what happens to Steven & Caitlin and whether their love is meant to be? It also wraps up the story of the Amazonian community to reveal the future of the new species...
Q 5) Will your book be Indie published, self published or represented by an agency and sold to a traditional publisher? 

Self published via Amazon, Createspace (paperbacks) & Smashwords
Q 6) How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? 

Still in process obviously... I think it's likely to be a year.

Q 7) What other books in this genre would you compare yours to?

Twilight, The Hunger Games ... although it is more like a TV series like Heroes or Roswell
Q 8) Who or what inspired you to write this book?

Stephenie Meyer... she was also a stay at home mum who choose to write in her spare time. The ideas come from all the different book & Scifi series I have watched over the years.
Q 9) What else about the book might pique the readers attention?

A new vampire theory to throw into the midst...
Q 10) Thank goodness!! Phew I've ran as fast as I can and these are the author's I've caught (and any who don't have a Blog of their own are welcome to have a sleepover at mine and post their answers here)

Now for my five victims... erm five other authors who will tell you about their WIP

Susan Buchanan
Terry Tyler
James Smith
Lydia Aswolf
Kaykay Obi

ENJOY GUYS... and if you can't take up the challenge then try and pass it on to another author that might be interested, thank you :) xx
