I would like to thank my friend Sarah Elle Emm for inviting me to join this tour.
What is the working title of your book?
THE SECRETS OF ALBION FALLS
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I have always loved reading and learning about the Aboriginal history, beliefs and ways. Last year I attended a Powwow, and while there, they talked about the skin-walkers. Being a fiction author whose main focus has always been on the supernaturals, it took little to no time for the story to develop.
What genre does your book fall under?
This story falls under no particular genre. It is more of a cornucopia of genres such as, Fantasy, Paranormal Romance mixed with Thriller and Suspense.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Hmm … now, that is something I’ve never thought about. I guess if I had the option, it would be Jonny Depp, in hopes that I’d be able to meet him.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Sophia believed that Alba (her best friend and a fairy); was the only secret in Albion Falls, she quickly learns that many different beings surround her, and that she is what the skin-walkers desire.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I am leaning towards Self-publishing this series.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
The first draft took only three months; however, this is a novella and a rough draft. The final draft will be ready in late November.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I would say it is a lot like Desired Nights, Book IV of The COTS Series. I would say it is most like that story due to the wide variety of shape shifters.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
The person who inspired me was the elder who told me the story of the skin-walkers. I added my own twist, but she inspired me because of her true belief in them.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
This is not your regular romance, paranormal, fantasy novella. This has all the elements of reality mixed with nightmares as well as dreams. Not every story has to be all butterflies and rainbows. This story may have some of those elements, but the fact is … life and love can be one hell of a scary ride!
