THE NEXT BIG THING BLOG HOP: Dawn Chapman

I’ve never tried this, but here goes. I got this from SOLOMON J. INKWELL which I found by search results.

I liked the idea so here we go… It is a blog hop, so I’ll check out the person who tagged them and see who else I can make friends with too 🙂 I’ve only had small stories published so this year will be a first for me with a novel…

The rules are fairly simple:

Give credit to the person who tagged you.

Post the rules for this hop.

Answer the following ten questions about your current WIP (Work In Progress) on your blog.

Tag one or more other writer/blogger and add his or her link so we can hop on over.

So, are you excited? Yep, me too. So, let’s get started…

What is the working title of your next book?

The Secret King – The Beginning

Where did the idea for the book come from?

I’ve been working on a TV series with a very good writer friend of mine. Steven Kogan over at

http://cinemasnackbar.wordpress.com/2012/12/07/dr-who-season-1-2005-or-when-does-the-fun-start/

titled The Secret King and I wanted to take part in Nanowrimo so it just sort of happened.

What genre does your book fall under?

Sci Fi / Fantasy

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a move rendition?

Kendro – Gerad Butler

Mika – Helen Hunt

Captain Hadi – Tim Rozon

Doctor Brie – Dana Delany (she looks like a friend of mine)

Octav – Luke Macfarlane

Chace – Justin Hartley

Wow, that was so much harder than I imagined, but such fun. Bonus.

What is the one sentence synopsis for your book?

With their sun dying, Kendro, King of The Aonise fights to save his people from total annihilation.

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

I am unsure yet. I will test the waters with traditional publishing first, then see alternatives.

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

Forty Seven days.

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

I’d like to not compare it to other authors, hoping it will stand on its own.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

The love for the world I’d already worked so hard on, and as a TV series script got its first recommend in early 2011. 🙂

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

It will appeal to anyone who loves… fantastic space battles and epic discoveries.
