Be Inspired Meme

The awesomely talented Christine Rains tagged me in this, when she was talking about her fantastic paranormal romance FEARLESS. It's terrific, and if you haven't read it yet, you really must. It can be found here.

The meme is a great way to talk about your stories, either WiP or completed stories and all you have to do is answer nine questions, so here goes.

1) What is the name of your book? For now, it's tentatively called Cupid, but I'm playing around with something like, Sometimes being Cupid is just not cool.

2)
Where did the idea of your book come from? I was thinking about paranormal creatures, and which ones haven't been explored yet, when I look over to my Monster High doll collection and saw the lovely C.A Cupid I had for my birthday. It was like lightning struck, and I thought what if there was more than one Cupid, and they lived in the mortal world?

3)
In what genre would you classify your book? New Adult Paranormal Romance.

4)
If you had to pick actors to play your characters in a movie rendition who would you choose? I love this game. I always play fantasy casting with a story I'm working on. My MC Callie would be played by Anne Popplewell (of Narnia fame), and her LI Leto would be played by Jackson Rathbone (of Twilight fame).

5)
Give use a one sentence synopsis of your book. Trainee Cupid Callie must make a hundred couples fall in love, while juggling a job as a romance writer and dating local guitarist Leto, if she fails, she gets turned to stone.

6) How long did it take to write your book? Still writing, but I've achieved almost 50k in 4 weeks.

7)
What other books within your genre would you compare it to? Or readers of which books would enjoy yours? Probably the Paranormalcy series by Kiersten White.

8) Which authors inspired you to write this book? Again, Kiersten White. I loved the originality and voice she gave to her MC Evie.

9) Tell us anything that might pique our interest in your book. Cupid is new take on paranormal romances, with neither a vampire or werewolf in sight, but with a tattooed guitarist to swoon over, and a creepy Immortal stalker who'll turn you to stone and add you to his collection!

For this I tag EVERYONE! Anyone and everyone reading my blog, I want to know what you're working on, or all about a book you've just finished/ published/ got an agent for/ you're querying etc.

  3. You're right - I can't think of one book with a Cupid. You just might start a new trend!
