Four Question Blog Tag

I was tagged by the prolific Barbara G Tarn – and when I say prolific I mean it. you should SEE the list of books she has out. Seriously. I haven’t managed to find time to read even half I bet. Yeesh! But that doesn’t mean YOU shouldn’t try. Seriously, check it out! http://creativebarbwire.wordpress.com

And now for the questions:

Question 1: What am I working on?

Clash of Legends – book seven in the Amaranthine series. I don’t have a nice synopsis written up because I’m only on chapter seven so I don’t know what is going to happen yet, but expect a few major changes for some of the characters. I think.

Question 2: How does my work differ to others of its genre?

There are vampire but it’s not YA. No one sparkles. There’s romance, but it’s not the number one focal point. There is fighting and gore and things blowing up ala an action movie, but the main character is a woman who is NOT a kick-ass heroine… So it’s a hard sell/tiny corner niche series. If I ever get time on my hands I’ll turn it into a manga.

Question 3: Why do I write/create what I do?

I write what I like. Hopefully other people like it too.

Question 4: How does your writing/creating process work?

It’s different for every book. This one doesn’t appear to want to be written in order. I have been writing a scene, then back tracking to fill in the things that go between it and the last scene and then editing the initial scene to fit with the stuff that went in between – it’s very timey-wimey for some reason.

 

I had a list of people to tag but after finding out that one of them passed away I am kind of in a bleh space, so if you’re reading this and would like to do it please take the tag and run with it. All my author friends have interesting WIPs worth sharing.

  1. And that’s why I started reading about vampires again when I stumbled on your series! 😉 I was stuck with Ann Rice’s Queen of the Damned and had completely lost interest in the topic – until Jorick and Katelina came along! 😀 Looking forward to book 7!

  2. Love your series, but you already know that. I’ve been doing a little bit of what you’re doing–writing out of sequence and then filling in the blanks. It helps get me moving when I’m stuck on a scene.

  3. I think your work is different because it’s a fantastic series. There’s love, but not gooey love, there’s friendship, but lots of enemies too. Well, there’s so many parts to your works.
