What I’m writing now
“What are you writing now?”
Johnnie Alexander Donely tagged me in this blog hop and asked me to play along. Thanks Johnnie. Johnnie has a book coming out in January with the same publisher, called Where Treasure Hides.
What’s the tittle?
Where did the idea come from?
Believe it or not from group Bible study one night.
Genre: contemporary women’s fiction
What actors would play your character in a movie version?
Zooey Deshcheanel would be my top choice for my heroine, she could pull of the quirkiness that would be required.
What’s the Short Synopsis?
Giving up her life in the carnival after becoming Christian, Barbie moves to Arkansas to live a new life. She sets her sights on owning her own business, but what kind is where the problems begin.
I am blessed to have Tamela Hancock Murray who is with the Steve Laube Agency, as my agent. She has the sweetest attitude about life.
How long did it take to write the first draft?
Ha! It’s not done yet! I’ve only just begun. Here’s a hint the first line is not: It was a dark and stormy night…wait that’s a good line, too bad it’s been used before.
What other books in the genre compare?
Maybe….Sandwich, with a Side of Romance by Krista Phillips or Mind of Madi by Lynda Lee Schab. I’ll know more when I’m finished.
Who or what inspired this WIP?
My friend John L. said something about being an Arkansas Barbie and poof a character was born in my mind. It’s a good thing Bible study was over because all I could think of was the story and the situations Arkansas Barbie would find herself in.
Anything to add?
I like writing all types of fiction, historical and contemporary. My characters are flawed (read sinful) and often trying to blend families. I’ve been told I write with humor, it isn’t intentional and I have trouble seeing it, but I’m not going to argue with those who are laughing.
