The Next Best Thing Blog Hop

Hi folks…I’ve been tagged by my good friend Layne Macadam in TNBTBH!

So here goes:

1: What is the working title of your book(s)?

My next best thing is my new MUSES ACROSS TIME series, and book I  (Chasing Terpsichore) I’ve already spoken about on another post, so I’ll talk about the book 2 now – it’s called Calling Calliope


2: Where did the idea come from for the book?
I wrote the first story several years back for a themed anthology that never eventuated and I really liked it. One of my beta readers suggested I make it into a series because she wanted to hear what happened to the other Muses, so I thought..why not?

3: What genre does your book come under?
That’s tricky because it’s contemporary and it’s Greek Mythology…

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

The hero is easy – because I based him on Chris Hemsworth (Thor in the Avengers!)

The heroine is a little trickier. I am thinking Jennifer Garner – she has the height and the heart for it.

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

Can love survive across time and place?

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?
When it’s finished *vbg* I’ll be sending it to Total-e-bound

7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
About 4 weeks for the first draft. Hopefully! I’m still writing it LOL

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Chasing Terpsichore reminds me a little bit of The Stone Prince by Gena Showalter.  I’m not sure if I can compare any others with Calling Calliope

9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?
As I mentioned above, it was one of my beta readers…and then of course, my editor was enthusiastic too :-)

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

When Callie is found wandering the streets of Melbourne, she has no memory of who she is. When a larger than life man appears, claiming he’s her husband, Callie immediately assumes they’re not together for a reason.

But a violent criminal is angry with her for hiding his family and plots revenge, so keeping this giant of a man around seems like it might be a good idea after all.

Gus might be a King in his own land, but this strange place is a different story. It took him six months to find his beloved Calliope and he is not leaving without her. Even if she can’t remember him.  Now that she’s in danger, the need to rescue her is greater, but the stubborn woman won’t believe him. To win her back he has to play it by her rules, or risk losing her forever.

Thanks for tagging me Layne!

So what do you think?

A goddess loose in modern times? Sounds like trouble to me…

Great news everyone!

My Greek Mythology/Contemporary fantasy story CHASING TERPSICHORE will be released later this year with Total-e-bound Publishing  This is Book 1 in my Muses Across Time series.  It’s so exciting to have a series!  My first ever :-)

Here’s the blurb:

 

When a goddess lands in modern times there’s bound to be trouble. 

Banished from her home in Olympus and trapped in modern day Australia, Terpsichore does her best to fit in, but when she is mistaken for a prostitute she needs the services of straight- laced solicitor James Barrington to help.

James Barrington is a man on a fast track to a stellar legal career. Being involved with a pole dancing tango teacher is not part of the plan. 

Together they fight a Titan rebel and a journey through the Underworld but can they find each other on the way?


Release dates are:

Preorder: 13th September 2013

Prerelease: 27th September 2013

General Release: 25th October 2013

It already has a gorgeous cover, but I’ll keep it a surprise for now!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

I’ll be back next week with some wise words about revising that manuscript :-)  That’s because it took me a few rounds to get this baby into shape, but it’s not too shabby now. I’ll tell you all about it next week.
