It's time for the next big thing...at least according to the author that tagged me, Kari Gregg. http://www.karigregg.com/ ...:)
I love talking about upcoming releases, but I think for this next big thing, I'm going to talk about a work in progress.
1. What is the working title of your book?
Her Pirate Master -- This is not a historical. This is a space opera/futuristic/BDSM. It's the first book in the next generation of the Entwined Fates series.
2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
The idea came from 'Jack'...or better known as Jacquelyn Marcone, the daughter of Count Stephan Marcone and his wife, Krista (two characters from Entwined Fates/Star Crossed.) She was determined to have her story told and just kept pushing her thoughts into my head at some of the most annoying times.
3. What is the genre of the book?
The genre is futuristic/BDSM. And this one will be much more heavy on the BDSM than I've ever done in the past.
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie
My pirate...Haydrian Victis would be played by the same guy that plays hook in Once Upon a Time...:)
This would be 'Jack'...:)
Very feminine, but also very tough.
5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Taken as a submissive slave to lure an enemy, 'Jack' must keep hidden the fact she is the enemy her captor is looking for.
6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency/publisher?
I'm not sure on that one yet.
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I'm still working on it...:) But my average is usually 2 to 3 months.
8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Mercenary...Destined for Two...Crossing the Line.
9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I've been wanting to continue with the Entwined Fates series and I've gotten several emails from readers wanting to know if I would continue the story line with the children. 'Jack' is the first of the Marcone children to get her story told. And it's going to be a doosy...:)
10. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
The level of BDSM and dubious consent in this one will be more intense. Despite her situation, there's an underlying sense of tenstion between the two of them, that Haydrian at first tries to ignore. His intent was never to actually take her, but just make the man he was looking for think he did. But the pretty blonde who constantly fights him at every turn becomes too much of a temptation to ignore. 'Jack' will make a few discoveries of her own, such as her desire to sexually submit, her shocking reaction to flogging, and the fact that her Pirate captor isn't at all who she initially thought.
Desperate circumstances can make people do things they normally wouldn't and for this Pirate/King that rings all too true when he finds he must become a thief in order to save his people. He's survived many battles, but the one thing he may not survive is the hurt he'll feel when he finds out the delectable blonde submissive he's falling in love with is the infamous Captain 'Jack' Marcone he's been determined to get revenge against.
