The lovely J.M. Stewart, Susie Medwell, Incy Black and Lindsay J. Pryor tagged me so I thought I better actually do it ;). I have to answer some questions about a current WIP or story due to be released and tag three other poor sods (babes beware!).
What is the title of your latest book?
Never Say Never, Book 2 (hopefully) in The Price of Fame SeriesWhere did the idea come from for the book?
Sander Chase, the hero, is a judge on the reality singing contest Do You Have What it Takes? in The Monster of Fame. I got curious about who he was when I wrote TMOF, so I did a character bio, and his story sort of grew from there.
What genre does your book fall under?
Contemporary Romance (on the steamy side, mind you!)
What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
Now, he doesn’t do it for me, but this is how I picture Sander…
And as for Chloe...
He needs a fake date, she needs a job, neither realise the spark between them will be so hard to ignore.
Is your book self-published or represented by an agency?
Hopefully it will sell to Beachwalk Press. *crosses everything*
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
Hahaha. Let’s just say far too long.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Hmmm, I’m not sure. How about the first one, The Monster of Fame? Cheating? :)
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
A whole heap of things. I’m a celebrity magazine junkie and eat up all the stories of the famous and unfortunate. Sander and Chloe are a whole compilation of things I’ve read about.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Chloe lived in LA, dated a movie star, but she was his dirty little secret. She came back to the UK when her mum was diagnosed with dementia.
Sander moved to the UK with his fiancé, who dumped him for his band mate. He’s forced back into the group and needs a fake date to take to their engagement party. But his family life is messy and Sander has a few secrets he can’t let anyone know.
