The Next Big Thing Blog Hop Tour.
Thank you Kharisma Rhayne for inviting me to participate in The Next Big Thing Blog Hop Tour.
The way this fun promotion works is last Monday Kharisma posted news about her NEXT BIG THING.
Today is my turn. Next Monday, five of my author friends will post promo’s about their NEXT BIG THING, and so on and so on. What a great concept right?
Next Monday check out: for their excerpts and answers to questions about their projects in the works.
For now take a look at my NEXT BIG THING, Dar’kind Promises released Feb 3, 2013 by Rebel Ink Press via all fine ebook vendors.
Ten Interview Questions for the “Next Big Thing”:
What is your working title of your book?
LOL: Working Title was “The Fairy and Cat Story” is the humble way “Dar’kind Promises” started out.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I saw a beautiful graphic art piece by Anne Stokes and created my Dar’kind Fairy, Maura
and almost simultaneously I found a picture of these unusual wild cats, Caracal Cats. And Zelia’s character was born. However, my Tracker Shifter character has spots somewhat like a Clouded Leopard.
In her human form I see Zelia as this beautiful red haired woman.
What genre does your book fall under?
Erotic Paranormal Romance
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Oh, that’s hard. I really have no idea!!
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Can I cheat and say, from Zelia’s POV it would be:
“Zelia is willing to risk becoming trapped in feline form and even losing the love she’s found with Maura if it means she can save Maura from the evil hunting them.”
and from Maura’s POV it would be:
If they are unable to figure out how to gain control of Zelia’s shifting, all hope for success of their mission as well as any possibility of their future together is lost.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I am a Rebel Ink Press Elite Author under exclusive contract with that publisher.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I average a novel per year. This past year I’ve dedicated to writing novellettes.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I’m not quite sure, Dar’kind Promises is unique. I don’t know that there is anything like it out there.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
My Editor Dawn asked me to try my hand at writing a F/F love story. Dar’kind Promises was the result.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Zelia has another problem. Unfortunately, Zelia is experiencing unpredictable shifts between feline manifestion and her human one with some quite unexpected results.
Dar’kind Fairy Maura comes to the human dimension on a search and rescue mission for one of her race. The success of the mission rests on her wits and the aid of her skilled feline tracker Zelia.
Unfortunately, Zelia is experiencing unpredictable shifts between feline manifestion and her human one with some quite unexpected results.
Worse yet, an ancient evil targets Maura in a bid for power and control of her magic.
Zelia is willing to risk becoming trapped in feline form and even losing the love she’s found with Maura if it means she can save Maura from the evil hunting them.
Maura searches for the strength to abandon the quest for her lost ‘sister’ if doing so will save Zelia’s life and stabilize her shifting abilities. Maura distracted by the sultry woman in her bed, struggles to stay focused on their quest. If they are unable to figure out how to gain control of Zelia’s shifting, all hope for success of their mission as well as any possibility of their future together is lost.
