I have been tagged by my friend Christine Scott to answer ten questions about my WIP (work in progress). Here is the link to her blog, Marathon Writer, so you can check out her next big thing. Her WIP is very interesting.
Question #1: What is the working title for your book?
Time Control: Deception
Question #2: Where did the idea come from?
A combination of things; watching Star Trek, interest in time travel, etc. The first book was actually going to be about a president of the United States, but decided to write it as the second book.
Question #3: What genre does your book fall under?
YA science fiction
Question #4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?
I’d have to look that up. I don’t know enough about teenage actors to pick yet.
Question #5: What is the one-sentence synopsis for your book?
Sixteen-year-old Rachel Foster meets a time traveler from the future who requests her help in saving billions of people lives in the year 2080.
Question #6: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Not sure yet. I want to finish working on the manuscript before delving into it.
Question #7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I’m not finished yet. My husband and I started it three years ago and we changed it last year when we thought of a better way to begin the story.
Question #8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
The closest one I know about Lisa Mangum’s Hour Glass Door series.
Question #9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I read the Twilight Saga in 2008 after years of not reading (fiction) and realized that reading fiction was the best remedy for stress to me. The idea to write one came to me on Mother’s Day in 2009.
Question #10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
We use a time machine that resembles a touch screen cell phone. And the subtitle is Deception.
