The Next Big Thing Blog Hop!

I was recently tagged in a blog "meme" called The Next Big Thing by soon to be published blogger Kate

So, here's my question and answer session!

What is the title of your next book?"Beast", although the publisher may change this.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

The novel is the fourth book in the Ethan Warner series. All of the books in the series take subject matter than people believe is myth, and reveal the facts behind the legends.

What genre does your book fall under?


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

All of my manuscripts have been sent to Hollywood, which is encouraging. If a movie did come out of it, the hot favourites are Hugh Jackman for Ethan Warner, and Eva Mendez for Nicola Lopez.

What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?

Not every other species of human died out....

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

I am represented by Luigi Bonomi of LBA, and the books are published internationally by Simon & Schuster and Touchstone USA.

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

6 months, including all research.

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

I think the late Michael Crichton's Congo might bear a resemblence to Beast at some levels.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

My imagination! I enjoy revealing unknown facts within novels, especially when those facts concern things that people believe to be paranormal or supernatural.

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

The fact that we as humans are surprisingly less capable than many of our most recent ancestors. We're not as unique as we once believed...

And in turn I tag:

Hey cheers, Dean (I hope you're right!).

Glad to see you're going from strength to strength, bud.
