Next Big Thing Blog Tour: Tales of the Executioners

senyaIs this getting out of hand? Well, it’s a matter of opinion, but when the awesome Victoria Hudson asked if I’d take the tag I had to say yes! you can check out her post about her forthcoming book The Republican, and also look into her other books while you’re there!

Since Heart of the Raven is pretty much done and just going through the final edits, I am answering this about my next big thing. 😉

Here are the questions:

1) What is the working title of your book? 

Tales of the Executioners is my working title, but I may try to “morsel” it up so I can get some fun puns out of it, like “Tasty bites of fiction” or “re-vamped” or “more fang for your buck” or any of the other really bad ones I’ve used so far.

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

After I finished the Vampire Morsels short stories I thought it would be fun before I launched into vampire Morsels 2.

3) What genre does it fall under? 

Paranormal Short Story Collection

jamie4) Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Hideaki Takizawa can play Verchiel. My brother wants Kate Beckinsale for Senya, but I’m not sold on that. As for everyone else… I have no idea.

5) What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?

A collection of 14 (I think) stories about the dreaded Executioners

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

Self pubbed as always because I like it that way!

7) How long did it take you to write the first draft?

I haven’t actually started it yet but, if I do one a week we’re talking fourteen weeks or more. I’d say four months to be safe.

beldren8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I have no idea.

9) Who or what inspired you to write this book? 

Honestly? I just think it’s a fun idea. I like to see where the characters came from.

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

It’s vampires so there’s bound to be some blood, some death, maybe a murderous rampage, probably at least one set of tragic lovers, and I guess Verchiel will finally get his own story.

As for tagging anyone, I don;t know who hasn’t done it yet, so if you haven;t then you’re tagged!

  3. Can’t wait. I love knowing that little ‘extra’ about the characters. Especially Verchiel and Jamie 🙂

  5. omg, you couldn’t have picked anyone better for Verchiel! An executioner book? Interesting. You know I’ll grab it when it’s done.

  6. Yay! More about Verchiel! *clears throat* I mean, yay on learning about all the executioners. 😉 Seriously though, this is an awesome idea.

    I agree. Self-publishing is what makes writing so much fun. Not only can we write the story we want, but we can publish it. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
