What I'm Working On, Inspiring Blog Award + Giveaway Winners

September was quite a month, a rollercoaster in every sense of the word. I look forward to getting back to blogging regularly very soon. Even though my online presence in Septemeber was sadly lacking, I enjoyed reading your comments. Thank you for dropping by. :)

1. Preet @ A Written Rhapsody - Crochet bag 
2. cleemckenzie - book depository
3. Kelly Hashway - Amazon GC
4. Julie - eCopy of Truly, Madly, Deeply, You

Congratulations! :)

I was tagged by two wonderful friends of mine: Emaginette for the Inspiring Blogger Award,  and Stephanie Keyes for What are I'm working on. Both are wonderful people I love to stalk - on the web. Thanks, Ladies. 

What I’m working on:

What is the working title of your book?

Reaper's Novice

Where did the idea come from for the book?

It all started with the question: What happens when someone dies? What happens to their souls? That, and sitting inside the Watchman Chamber at St. Stephen's Cathedral here in Vienna-- about 61 feet above ground -- tossing the idea around inside my head.

What genre does your book fall under?
YAUrban Fantasy

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

Goodness, I can only think of one, because I pictured him the whole time I was writing the scenes. Alex Pettyfer - a younger version of him. I think he'd fit with his moody/tortured look about him.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Would you trade your soul for the ones you love?

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

Self- published

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

About 4 months

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

Can't think of any.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

Grim aka, Ernest. He is a nice guy, despite how he appears in literature.

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

There is a little bit of everything in the story; mystery, romance, danger.

Now, “Tag! You’re it!”

Here are some great authors that I've tagged in this game. Hopefully, they'll have some time to tell us what they are up to.
