The Next Big Thing

The Next Big Thing

 A very good friend of mine, Gail Baugniet, author of "For Every Action There Are Consequences", invited Kenn Hoss to join in on this blog event (TNBT - The Next Big Thing), and he could not turn her down. Kenn tagged me. Gail was originally invited by Laurie Hanan, author of the Louise Golden mystery series.The event consists of 10 questions about your current WIP (Work in Progress.)

Here’s the plan:
 A. Answer the ten TNBT questions listed below about your current WIP (Work In Progress)
 B. Tag five other writers and link their blogs so we can all hop over and read their answers.

It’s that simple. The handbook, Writing Mysteries, edited by Sue Grafton, lists the rules of mystery writing and which ones can be bent. The only one I actually break is having more than two characters in a scene. For the rules of The Next Big Thing, I will definitely tag five other writers and link to their blogs so you can hop over and check out their sites. Gail has tweaked the rules and is breaking up the ten questions. The way it will go is, answer one question per week and tag five other authors each time you answer a question.

 I was tagged by Kenneth Hoss, author of Storm Rising and the sequel WIP Storm Warning. He had included these authors for his five. And now for the five authors whose work you will definitely want to check out: Carolyn Arnold - Author of the Madison Knight series and Eleven Everett Powers - Author of Canals and The Mighty T Patti Roberts - Author of the Paradox series Jennifer Chase - Author of the Emily Stone series Reggie Ridgway - Author of In the Midnight Hour

 Here is a list of five names I have chosen to tag

 3. Stephen Hise Author Twitter    FB

 4. Stacy Green author  twitter FB

 Here is the full list of The Next Big Thing questions for you to copy and paste to your blog, along with your answers. Just tag five awesome writers and add their links so we can all follow along.

1. What is the title of your book/WIP?
2. Where did the idea for the book come from?
3. What genre would your book fall under? 
4. Which actor would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
5. What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
6. Is your book published or represented?
7. How long did it take you to write?
8. What other books within your genre would you compare it to?
9. Which authors inspired you to write this book?
10. Tell us anything else that might pique our interest in your book.

 The answer to number 1. Moon Glow It is actually just a WIP in my head as I have been busy getting Moon Shadow ready for release in a few weeks. This will be a series centered around a couple of characters picked by the President to head up a black-ops-style task force to investigate biological threats to the USA. It is an interesting concept and full of possibilities for a series. Stay tuned and thanks for your interest.
