The Next Big Thing originated on the She Writes site, as far as we could work out, and is designed to raise awareness of our work, or work in progress. We do that by answering ten questions about it. We graciously thank the person who nominated us, and tag five other authors whose work could well be that NEXT BIG THING.
Now, it's my turn to answer the questions and tag five more writers. So far, I've struck out on tagging anyone. If you are interested, please contact me. It's really not hard and a great way to spread the word about your NEXT BIG THING.
My latest novel, A Shepherd's Song, also debuted during the Thanks for Great Book Blog Hop, but since we are talking about the NEXT BIG THING, I'm going to preview the next book that will come out.
What is the title of your next book?
The title of my next book, which will come out in late spring, is CAPE CURSED.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
For more than 20 years, my family has vacationed on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Some years ago, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse was moved inland--a major engineering feat--to save it from the encroaching Atlantic Ocean. I wondered what would happen if a Yankee girl's company came to the Outer Banks to move a beloved lighthouse? Thus CAPE CURSED was born.
What genre does your book fall under?
CAPE CURSED is a romantic suspense.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Parker Swain is the handsome descendant of the lighthouse keepers. He's blond, soft-spoken and a Southern gentleman. Tim McGraw would be a good one or Matthew MConaughey.
Nancy Klempner is Bliss's faithful assistant. She's an athletic, blonde, older woman. If we could frump up Nicollette Sheridan, she'd be perfect.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to contact me if you'd like to be THE NEXT BIG THING.
