I saw this meme on your WIP over at The Organic Writer and thought it would be a good way to start posting here again.
What is your working title of your next novel?
The Salt Lover’s Book of Magic
Where did the idea come from for this novel?
I like salt and I was wondering why I am obsessed with it. I will eat salt all by itself, as a food group. I thought maybe my craving came from some trauma in a previous life.
What genre does it fall under?
Fantasy, Self-Help and How To.
Which actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
Vincent van Kingmaker looks just like Gerald Gardner (not an actor.) Frank Hendersen would be played by Ian Somerhalder. They would both be the same all of the time except for when Frank looks like his demon self. Now, Mary would look different in each book. As Mary, in this lifetime, she would look and act like the mother in the movie, Muriel’s Wedding, the actress Jeanie Drynan. Then, depending on what life she’s relieving, will depend on the actor. In this book, she would be female and she would be Maisie Williams (Arya from GoT.)
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your novel?
Still in progress – Mary, a housewife in New Jersey, wants to die. Frank, demon/god, is obsessed with Mary. He causes her to be repeatedly reborn, once in an ancient Austrian salt mine.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I will self-publish on Amazon.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
I will have it all done and ready for publishing by the end of March 2013. The first draft is mostly in my head. But I have lots of time to write, now.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I think this will be a new and unique kind of book. Part stories of reincarnation, magic studies and a demon/god’s journal.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
My constant craving for salt and the possible reasons for it.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
The first half will consist of related short stories about reincarnation. The second half will be a how to book on magic with spells all using salt.
