Thanks to the wonderful Camelia Miron Skiba for nominating me to participate in the Next Big Thing Blog Hop. The blog hop serves to highlight new releases and introduce other authors. Cami’s new book is called Born in Sin. Fabulous cover!! The blog consists of a series of questions about the author and his or her book.
What is the working title of your book?
The title is official: The Necromancer’s Seduction.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
My protagonist, the necromancer Ruby, just started speaking to me and telling me her story, which included raising people from the dead. Not sure what that says about me 🙂
What genre does your book fall under?
Urban Fantasy with strong romance.
What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
That’s a hard question. Maybe the red headed version of Rachel McAdams for Ruby. And for the hero, Ewan? Joe Manganiello probably has the right body type, although I finally watched Vikings, and am liking it! The brother character, Rollo, played by Clive Standen, would be good, although his morals are questionable, Rollo that is. He’s definitely got that dark, swarthy thing going on though!
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Ruby, a necromancer unleashes her power and reignites a legacy that threatens the entire supernatural community as well as her own soul.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
The entire Necromancer Series will be published by ImaJinn Books.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
When I first started writing the story, I never thought I’d make it this far. I had time to treat it like a hobby, so I’d say about two years.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I can’t think of specific books, but there are some Urban Fantasy authors I read that provided some inspiration: Kelley Armstrong, Stacia Kane, and Diana Rowland.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
The character Ruby and my love of reading paranormal fiction.
What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?
