The Next Big Thing

I’ve been tagged by Natasha Alexander for the Next Big Thing. If you want to read about her next release, Moon Beach Magic, visit her blog @ Natasha Alexander: everything under the sun

Here’s my Next Big Thing:


What is the working title of your next book?

Precious Embrace

Where did the idea come from for the book?

I got the idea for Precious Embrace while writing Dangerous Embrace. I had these two secondary characters who I loved, so I decided to give them their own story.

What genre does your book fall under?

Romance or Romantic Suspense

What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?

That’s an easy question.

Ali Larter would play Alison Hayes. Ali-Larter-Wallpaper1

gabriel-aubry-1-sizedGabriel Aubry would play Johnny Rhay Bennett, or Josh Halloway. Josh is a little too old to be Johnny, but he’s certainly hot enough.Sawyer-lost-1

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

I don’t have a one-sentence synopsis, BUT I do have a one-sentence tag line.

A new love, a missing child, a family found.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Precious Embrace will be published by Sapphire Star Publishing. The release date is July 11, 2013.

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

The first draft took me about 45 days, editing that first draft has taken much longer.

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

Ohhh, that’s a hard question. If I had to pick, I would say Precious Embrace compares to Maya Banks’ KGI series, only without the military aspect.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

Ali and Johnny were secondary characters in book one, Dangerous Embrace. As soon as I put Johnny on the page, I knew he needed his own story. He had such charisma and charm. I loved him from the very beginning. Of course he also had great chemistry with Ali, I couldn’t resist putting them together.

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

Precious Embrace has a little something for everyone. It’s a sweet love story about an unlikely family coming together. You’ll find suspense, mystery, sex, intrigue, and a sweet little baby named Micah.
