Blog Hop: The Next Big Thing

Yes, the illustrious Lada Ray has chosen me as the Next Big Thing and I now must pass this on. It is a blogger meme for authors who are awesome. Being awesome, I am now made privy to answering these questions. Here we go!

THE NEXT BIG THING!

Q&A:

1.What is the title of your new book? What’s next? 

The current book I am publishing is The Ancients and the Angels: Archons.  It is the second addition to the Ancients and the Angels series. The first is Celestials. You’ll have to read that one before Archons. Next up after that is a survey of my short- and micro- fiction tentatively to be called Everyone Must be Crushed. It’s a Bizarro review and unlike The Ancients and the Angels, it’s not YA. Archons is due to hit the shelves in March.

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?

I wish to wake young women up to the subversive oppression and veiled slavery that permeates the world to this day.  I hope that they can read my books and draw parallels to what is unfolding before their very eyes week by week. Tyranny creeps, but it creeps quickly. Most of the content is fueled by my knowledge of mystical, occult and esoteric topics that I’ve studied throughout my life.

3. What genre does your book fall under?

The Ancients and the Angels is fully YA, but may have some rough stuff in it. I don’t glorify it, though. It has been said these books can easily leap the gap between teens and adults, so readers of all ages will like it. My series is a blend of occult, paranormal, supernatural and, well, let’s call it “Rome-punk.”

4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Nicole LaLiberte would be excellent to portray Quen’die Reyliss. I mean, c’mon, Look!

Victoria Justice would make a fine Venn’lith Mitlan.

Quen’die’s mom, Glynna IS Carice Van Houten. Nobody else.

Ed Norton as Ferd’inn?

All other cast members will be portrayed by pornstars who are hard-up for straight work.

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

“INFERNAL INVASION! The bowels of Hell open wide and demonic forces attack the living on an ancient Earth not long before the dawn of mankind!“

Okay, that was two sentences, technically, but so what?

6. Is your book self-published or represented by an agency?

Novembermill is the label that pays me! Represent! It’s a small press.

7.  How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

Not even a year. I’m obsessed. Fast. I drink lots of coffee too. Like POTS of it.

8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Being horribly unoriginal, I would say I draw from Frank Herbert, G.R.R. Martin and Gravity’s Rainbow. A little J.G. Ballard too. Lots of P.K. Dick as well, because I’m paranoid-schizophrenic and proud of it.

9. Who or What inspired you to write this book?

I was dating someone who said that I should write. So I did… I’m so obedient. Then, she pulled out a bullwhip and… oh,  never mind.

10. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Sex, gore, vomit, behemoths. Oh, and elves. Everything is better with elves.

But fun for the entire family!

  1. Cool actor choices, MC! Good stuff! 🙂

  2. Heh! I like that last sentence.

    “Elves make everything better.”

    I totally agree!

    Almost everything WIP right now as elves in it for me. I love elves!

  3. I’m like an elf -farmer. You’ve come to the right place, Cheyenne.

  4. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

  5. A fascinating discussion is worth comment.
    I do think that you should publish more about this issue, it
    might not be a taboo matter but usually people
    do not speak about these subjects. To the next!
    Kind regards!!
