The Next Big Thing WIP Blog Hop


Thanks to Elizabeth over at Elizabeth Lawrence, Author & Professional Oddity for tagging me in The Next Big Thing WIP Blog Hop. If you have a moment, please go over and say Hello!

So, let's get started:

What is the working title of your book?

The Clover Key

Where did the idea come from for the book?

The idea came from two places--a quote I read in an interview and photos of an abandoned castle.

What genre does your book fall under?

YA Historical

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

Mika Boorem as Kate Finch
Adam Wagner as Andrew Buchanan
Olivia Holt as Skye Ross
Angus McLaren as Ryan

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Kate and Skye live centuries apart, but a book and a curse bring them together to save an entire clan.

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

I'm in the process of querying for agent representation.

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

The first draft was done in about 4 months, but the entire novel was rewritten with different points of view and tense. That second draft took almost a year!

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

The Clover Key has dual points of view, and alternated between past and present. I'm not sure if there any YA Historical books that do the same thing.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

My BWFF Courtney Rene.

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

There's magic and evil and a really old book. Doesn't that sound like fun?
