Thursday... and Another Big Thing

Okay, you're probably wondering how many Next Big Things one author can possibly participate in by this point, right? 

Heh. Well, the truth is this one is my fourth, and I'm planning to do at least one a month for until the end of this year, and more often if I have more coming out in the meantime. Okay... um.... so my next big thing is actually my final for Italian Cinema class... but I'm trying to keep this all about the writing. 


So, in true Writing Cave fashion, here's the NEXT BIG THING... and it's coming in February... well, at least it's getting subbed in February... and then I'll keep you posted about when it'll actually be available. 

1: What is the working title of your book?


2: Where did the idea come from for the book?

Hmmm... Tracy Tucker Faul. She played a song for me, and told me she wanted a story to go with it... this is her story.

3: What genre does your book fall under? 

Contemporary Romance

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

Two scrumptious unknowns!

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

A man falls in love with his best friend, but takes eight years and travelling to the other side of the country to figure it out.

*I did say I suck at one sentence synopses* 

6: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

An Agency... MLR is where I plan to sub this puppy.

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

 Heh. Still writing it.

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?  

?What were we talking about?

9: Who or What inspired you to write this book?

The song Changeless by Carbon Leaf... and the song Time after Time by Cindy Lauper.

10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? 

It features some of the funniest moments in texting, ever. No, really.

I found a sucker... er, I mean another talented author to dive into the Next Big Thing pool after me! Jade Crystal is up to bat next week and you can find more of Jade's awesome by following the links on this page *Jade's Facebook stuff*


  1. Yay! 'Bout time! (& FTR, for anyone who's interested, some of the funny texting is lifted more or less directly from my Twitter. Cherie's sneaky like that. ;) )

    1. It's true. And we'll leave this up like an Easter Egg of trivia... when the book comes out, anyone who remembers where some of the more brilliant texts come from will be entered in a drawing... for a signed copy of the print version of the book... If they come to the blog and leave a comment about where the texts might have come from. :) *muhahahahaha*


What's your take?
