In this particular hop, I and my fellow authors, in their respective blogs, have answered 10 questions where you get to learn about our current work in progress as well as some insights into our process, from characters and inspirations to plotting and cover decisions. I hope you enjoy it!

Please comment and share your thoughts and questions. Here is my Next Big Thing!

1: What is the working title of your book?
Firebrand Trilogy #3: Dragons of War

2: Where did the idea for this book come from?
The original idea came from the Edgar Allan Poe story The Fall of the House of Usher. It started as a short story with two beginnings that I couldn't decide between. Then I realized that what I had was two different stories that ended up being two trilogies

3: What genre does your book come under?
YA Fantasy/ Sword & Sorcery

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Jada: Vanessa Marano (with amber contacts)   Carlan: Logan Lerman (with blonde hair)     Verdin: Jason Dolley (with red hair and blue-green contacts)   Darlois: Steven Strait      Zazere: Jake Abel (with black hair and black contacts)   Rinitha: AnnaSophia Robb      Esren: David Henrie   Vaughn: Robbie Amell    Gaden: Freddie Stroma (with blue contacts)   Tarel: Tom Felton   Sky: Molly C. Quinn (with blonde hair and brown contacts)

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
The war for the Ten Kingdoms has begun.

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?
Independent publisher.

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

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
This trilogy bears some similarities to the Dragonlance books.

9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?
The Edgar Allan Poe story The Fall of the House of Usher. Although, the trilogy is absolutely nothing like that story.

10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
The two main characters, Jada Suvari and Carlan Andrassis are firebrands; they can create and control fire.

Below you will find authors who will be joining me by blog, next Wednesday. Do be sure to bookmark and add them to your calendars for updates on WIPs and New Releases! Happy Writing and Reading!
