The Next Big Thing Blog Tour

Hello, Therians!!

I was so honored when the fabulous Emma Mills, author of the WitchBlood series, tagged me in The Next Big Thing Blog Tour.

'What is this tour all about?' I hear you ask.
Well it is an ever-increasing, worldwide tour of author interviews. So a HUGE thank you to Emma for thinking of me.

TNBT: What is the title of your book?
Therian. It is the first book in The Bloody Crescent trilogy.

TNBT: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
All Amberlyn Darksky wanted was to be normal, but what if normal was everything supernatural and legendary?

TNBT: Where did the idea come from for the book?
I’ve always been fascinated by vampires and werewolves. I loved the idea of taking these mythical creatures and adding my own spin to the legends. I was also intrigued by the idea of combining the two, forming a new hybrid creature. That’s when Amber was born, and the rest of the story took shape from there. It changed drastically from my first idea to the final product and I had immense fun crafting and re-crafting along the way. It’s amazing how once you breathe life into your characters, they take over and write the story for you.

TNBT: What genre does your book fall under?
Young Adult Paranormal Romance, although readers of all ages will enjoy it :)

TNBT: What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
Wow! This is a difficult question. I’ve never really thought of it, but I’d probably go for lessor known actors. I can say that when I was writing the story I had a huge crush on Chris Riggi and he was my inspiration for Tayelon Cree. I think Odette Yustman is beautiful and she’d be my ideal Amber Darksky.

TNBT: How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
The first draft took roughly 6 months to complete. A few months more and it was ready for submission.

TNBT: Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I was going through a really tough time in my personal life. I’d just had my heart broken and I guess I needed a way to vent my hurt and anger. It was actually very therapeutic.

TNBT: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
My book combines romance, the supernatural and one girls battle to find herself, only to discover her true destiny. I think it has all the elements that work so well with this genre. There's no love triangle either! In fact, I believe the romantic element of my story is more a love square LOL.

Where you can stalk me:

And now onto the wonderful authors I've tagged for this event. Unfotunately almost every author I know has already joined this tour, but I'm excited to be tagging two fellow 48fourteen authors:

Happy Reading!!
