Week 26: THE NEXT BIG THING BLOG HOP
There are the books everyone has heard about: Twilight, Hunger Games, Fifty Shades of Gray. But what about all those books written by people you’ve never heard of? Some of them are treasures, just waiting to be found, and that’s what this blog hop is all about: the books you might not have heard about, but that you might end up loving.
This blog hop is like a game of tag. One author posts and tags five other authors who link back to their website the next week and tag five new authors. If you follow the blog hop long enough, you’re bound to find some books you’ll love! Maybe you’ll even discover a book that ends up being the next big thing.
I was tagged by WT Prater. You can learn more about her book, The Six Sides of Love (The Chosen Family Chronicles- Volume One) on her blog!
And so, without further ado, the questions for this blog hop . . .
1: What is the working title of your book? Men of Tokyo: Forbidden Cravings (Series: White Tigers)
2: Where did the idea come from for the book? The two heroes, Mod and Tatou, are recurring characters in my White Tigers series and the time has finally come for their story to be told.
3: What genre does your book fall under? Contemp GLBT fiction, Drama, Erotic Romance, Multi-cultural and…ahem…Twincest
4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Ooh, hmm, let me think. For these guys I think Dean Cain in a dual role would work just fine, although I’m certainly open to suggestions. :)
5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? Some cravings will not be denied, no matter how taboo…
7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? I’m not even sure at this point because I am also a publisher and have to edit other authors’ work. It’s been close to a year and I’m just closing in on finishing.
8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Any M/M erotic romances that contain Twincest would compare.
9: Who or What inspired you to write this book? Honestly, my readers have inspired this particular title. I had thought the White Tigers series basically written out and wasn’t going to write Mod and Tatou’s story. But I’ve had so much praise and support from readers who love this series I realized that it would be selfish to end it there.
10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? Hmm, not sure. I guess for readers who enjoy yaoi style M/M and/or M/M set in Japan would enjoy this story. I write the elements that draw me to a story, so people of similar interests will be drawn too.
Here is a list of authors who will be joining the hop for week 27 on January 2, 2013. I hope you’ll visit their blogs next week and learn more about their books. Maybe one of them will become your new favorite author! And with that . . . Tag . . . YOU’RE IT! . . . .Mya and D.H. Starr
