The Next Big Thing Meme!

The wonderful Kyra Lennon tagged me in The Next Big Thing Meme. Thank you Kyra! ^_^ 
Go check out her blog, where she talks about her Game On sequel, all about Westberg Warriors' teen heartthrob Jesse Shaw!

Before I start talking about my current project, I just wanted to let everyone know about Deana Barnhart's
GUTGAA Critique and beta connections post, where you can sign up if you're looking for a CP or beta, and Deana will try her best to set you up with someone. Check it out if you're after a CP or beta! :D My sign up can be seen here.

What is the working title of your book?

Cupid

Where did the idea come from?

I was on a paranormal romance kick, having just finished Kiersten White's fabulous Endlessly, and got to thinking about paranormal beings that haven't really been touched upon. I looked over to my bookcase, where my collection of Monster High dolls sit, and saw CA Cupid. That got me thinking about Cupids, and if it was possible there was more than one. The rest kind of flowed from there. 

What genre does your book fall under?

New Adult Paranormal Romance


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

I love these types of questions, especially as when I'm planning a novel, I always have a fantasy cast list in my head saved on my computer!
My MC, Callie, would be played by the beautiful Anna Poppelwell of Chronicles of Narnia fame, and her LI, Leto, would be played by the gorgeous Jackson Rathbone of Twilight fame.

What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?

[Why are one sentence synopsis so hard?!]
Trainee Cupid Callie must make 53 couples fall in love, in just six months, while juggling work at the local newspaper, a soical life and her budding relationship with local guitarist Leto - if she fails she'll be turned to stone by anti-Cupid Abraxas. 
[Run on sentences for the win!]
  
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I'm hoping for/ will be aiming for traditional publication, probably through a small, independent press. 

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

It's not complete yet, but so far, it's taken me six weeks. 

Who or what inspired you to write this book? The support and encouragement from Kyra, my hubby and my friend Kim. And also, all the great comments I've received around the blogosphere whenever I mention Cupid! ^_^

What else about your book would pique the reader's interest?

Erm ... just that I think it's an original take on paranormal romances, as it's not your run of the mill paranormal being. :D

  3. Ooo, I wonder why 53 is the significant number of couples. Sounds like fun.

    1. Thanks for dropping by Suzanne. 53 is the significant number of couples because Callie's full quota is 100, and she's already connected 47 couples. :D

  6. The number 53 must have some kind of significance. All I know is that you said "juggling"--I'm sold.
