The Next Big Thing

Hello and a great big Happy New Year to you all.  I hope you all have had a great break and are now all ready and geared up for 2013.  Wow it's going to take me a while to get used to writing that!

Firstly, I would like to thank Jennifer Paetsch author of 'Ghost of Doors'.  Who very kindly invited me to join The Next Best Thing blog.  Please drop by and take a look at Jennifer's blog questions and see what else she will be up to this coming year.
All very exciting.

Right now onto the questions.........

The Next Best Thing! 

1. What is the working title of your book?

Hmmmm… yes well, that I’m not saying, but it is the second book in my new paranormal series. Smile

2. Where did the idea come from for your book?

My over active imagination, the one that used to get me in trouble with my English teacher. Whispers oh and the voices….. lol  

3. What genre does your book fall under?

All my books are romance.  I have historical, modern and paranormal.  I’m also planning a teenage romance series and a fun children’s range….. but I’m not saying any more on than that right now either! Smile

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

Wow.....mmmmm.... I’ve never even put any thought to it. Shrugs shoulders Sorry!

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Passionate love, heartache and adventure.

6. What is the longer synopsis of your book?

Hmmmm… I’m not telling right now, but as I said before it is the second book to my paranormal 1st series. Smile

7. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?


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

Once my fingers are tapping away on the keyboard, it really doesn’t take very long at all to write a manuscript really.  My brain wont let me stop until its finished anyway!  It’s the rewriting and editing that takes the time….. and boy does it feel like it take’s forever some times.

9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?

My own over active imagination some good fashioned daydreaming…. You know, shrugs shoulders the normal way! 

10. What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?

Ooooh well.... I’ve reinvented the vampire world…. but it’s not just their world I’ve messed around with.  I’ve also played around with a few of the other supernatural’s worlds too.  Its all very exciting, I want to plug my brain into a computer and let it just write for me, so you can see and feel the adventure here and now, that I have waiting for you. Smile.

Now that I have successfully answered 10 questions, without really telling you anything about my next book…. It’s still a secret.  Looking very pleased with myself.

I’ll hand you over to the next eager to talk authors.

  1. Cool post, Maxi! I read and liked the first book of your paranormal series and I hope it does well for you. Keep up the good work!
    All the Best,
    Jennifer Paetsch

  2. Thanks for the invite, Maxi. I will make sure to post it during next week. From your post, I like the reinventing bit, seeing as you've not really revealed much else, stirring the mystery juices here, so I'm looking forward to that. Cheers!
