The Next Big Thing Blog Tag

I was recently tagged by the very lovely Krista Walsh to participate in this fun blog hop.  It’s cool because I get to talk about my next big project, and since so many developments toward getting it published have occurred in the last couple of weeks, I’m pretty damn excited.  Before you jump into my responses though, be sure to have a look at Krista’s too—looks like she has a very interesting book in the works! What is the working title of your book?  

Soul Avenged (Sons of Wrath, #1)

Where did the idea come from for the book?  

I’m not exactly sure.  The main character, Ayden, has been rattling the cages for a while now and back in January, I finally sat down to find out what all the noise was about.

What genre does your book fall under? 

Paranormal romance but probably a bit more on the side of urban fantasy.

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

Oh man, I have no clue.  Maybe once it’s released, my readers will tell me who fits the characters.  Ha!

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? 

After being brutally attacked by Lycans, a female teams up with a brood of Wrath demons for revenge.

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


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

A little over six weeks

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

JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood, Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld.

Who or What inspired you to write this book? 

Just the unrelenting draw of the characters in the story.  As they became more distinct, I needed to know more about their world.

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

The story is set in gothic Detroit.  Even though many parts of Detroit are abandoned and run-down, it has its little diamonds embedded within the city.  In fact, I’ll be blogging about Detroit coming up. 

This book also falls a little outside of my usual writing – it’s very dark, much more violent and the sex scenes have a bit more steam.
