Here are the rules:
- Give credit to the person/blog that tagged you
- Post the rules for this hop
- Answer these ten questions about your current WIP (Work In Progress) on your blog
- Tag five other writers/bloggers and add their links so we can hop over and meet them.
1. What is the working title of your book?
I Heart Robot
2. What genre does the book fall under?
YA science fiction with a dash of romance
3. Which actors would you choose to play your characters for the movie rendition?
Hm, tough question. Think I’d choose Saoirse Ronan for Tyri (but picture her with dark hair) and maybe a 17yr old Zac Efron look-alike for Quinn. This question is a lot harder than I thought – so out of touch with teenage Hollywood!
4. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Tyri thinks she’s finally met the boy of her dreams – a guy who not only understands but shares her passion for the violin – but, although Quinn might be perfect, he also might not be human.
5. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Hopefully represented by my wonderful agent, Jordy Albert.
6. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Still writing. Started in September and plan to have a first draft complete by the middle of November at the latest.
7. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Gosh, I don’t know. I have read some other robot stories but they were so different from mine. Perhaps the new release Eve and Adam might be comparable in terms of romance and funky science.
8. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
No idea. I was happily writing another book when this idea just attacked me, forced me to cease everything else and devote attention to this story. I’ve always loved robots and androids – they’ve popped up in two of my other novels so perhaps I’ve just always wanted to write a book where the android gets a starring role.
9. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It’s set in a futuristic post-war ‘Skandia’ which is a fictional blend of Norway and Sweden. I’ve tried to include as many cultural references as possible without alienating readers. I think this unusual setting might pique reader’s curiousity.
And the five I’ve chosen to tag are:
