Where the Happily Ever Afters Are Always In Color

My Jill

I think most people are particular about the way they do things. I’ve mentioned before that I really, really need to have a clear picture of what exactly my characters look like in my head before I can start writing their story. When I first saw Melissa Debling, I KNEW she was my Annie. (Melissa, if you’re reading this I know you’re your own person and my casting you as one of my characters was not at all creepy. I swear)

My Tokyo/Miyoko

Once I have my characters in place, I also like to come up with music that makes me think of them and their story. I have some really depressing music in mind for VSS Book4. Sam is in a pretty dark place. I had some great R&B; tunes for Benny and Cleo, though “I love You” by Lenny Williams can and should be listened to at least several times a week just to add a little bit of drama to your day.

Yesterday, while I sat prepping for another adventure in reality tv, a song came up on my pandora station that was just too perfect for my next sorority girl/vampire lady adventure.

Readers have already told me a bit about how they feel about these two. Please feel free to read the first two books in the series to get a glimpse of what they’re getting at. Jill is annoying. So annoying, but I love her so much. A clingy little freshman when we meet her, who has issues with personal boundaries and a verbal bluntness that I personally love. Tokyo too is a bit of an asshole who has a habit of getting in the way. Am I bringing them together as a couple? YOU BETCHA! And I’m really excited about it. So what song is the perfect fit for them?

Why? You’ll just have to read VSS Book 3 to find out. Oh and I should probably start writing it. :)

It seems I’ve been tapped for The Next Big Thing Blog Hop. YAY!
The purpose of the hop is to find out what an author is working on and next and maybe get linked to authors you aren’t familiar with to hear about their next project. Yvonne Heidt and Jeffrey Ricker.  I feel special :) So here’s what I’m working on next. 

What is the working title of your book? 
Soul To Keep: Vampire Sorority Sisters: Book 3
 
Where did the idea come from for the book?
Vampire Sorority Sisters: Book 1 and 2 :)
 
What genre does your book fall under? 
Erotica Paranormal Romance
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Jill in my head is Fefe Dobson and Miyoko/”Tokyo” is model/actress Sayaka Isoyama
 
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
What would you do if finding the love of your life meant sacrificing your soul?
What is the longer synopsis of your book??
Oh, I haven’t written it yet. I hate synopsisessss. Essentially, after seventy years as a vampire, Tokyo meets the one human who only wants her for her body, with out the aide of a blood bond. In order to win over college junior, Jill,  Tokyo must face her past and the crippling PTSD she suffered as a human during World World II. She must show Jill her true personality and expose herself to an evil that could kill them both.
 
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency??
Hopefully my publisher, Bold Strokes Books, will be into it.
 
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Uh, eight weeks? Let’s go with eight weeks.
?
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
Jill popped up up in book two as such a vivid character. She’s sweet, but so annoying and I love her. I knew her and Tokyo could be an amazing couple if they could get over some crucial issues. Throw in some vampire sex and well, you know.
 
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest??
Murder? I’m going to kill some people in this book. :) There will also be some fun sex.
That’s all I got.
