This morning, I had another lull at work. No one else was in the office, and I had two hours to kill.
I opened up Wings of Skell to edit it, but before I’d even found my place again, I was opening a new document, and typing out the details of an idea that I’d had Monday night.
This is my final set of answers for now – focusing on the novel I began in 2010, and am working on into 2013 (mainly to stop me editing the previous two). It’s not as detailed as the previous two, but as it’s actually my work in progress, I thought I should post about it.
1) What is the working title of your book?
It’s currently called The Mists of Shade.
2) Where did the idea come from for the book?
Watching Pocahontas on Monday night reminded me of an idea I’d had a few months or years again. It wasn’t new, but this new idea then blossomed over the last three days as I tried to write it down and then ignore it.
3) What genre does your book fall under?
I’ve only written one chapter, but I’d say fantasy as a loose category for now.
4) Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I only have two characters so far, and one of them’s an animal.
5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Kayla is a social worker in the county of Sussex, and looks from the outside as normal as anyone. But she has a gift that she cannot ignore. When she begins working on a case at work that stumps her colleagues, she discovers the war that’s going on under every person’s feet.
6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
At this point, neither. Both are possible though.
7) How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I began this morning… It’s less than 3,000 words so far.
8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I’ll let you know when I know what this one’s about.
9) Who or what inspired you to write this book?
One scene of Pocahontas, loosely.
10) What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
I already know what I want the cover to look like, and it’s EPIC.
