Tagged - Chaos Has His Say
I got tagged! I'm it! I'm it!
Thanks to Tyrean, I get to share about Chaos, or rather, I get to let Chaos have his say. He's the dragon that grumbled when I shared about MINGLED in the other post about a work in progress.
Here are the questions and my answers...sorta lol!!
What is the working title of your book?
The current title is AMONG DRAGONS AND MEN.
What genre does your book fall under?
YA high fantasy. Yeah, talking, flying dragons, swords and sorcery and a girl mixed up in the middle.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?
I honestly haven't given this any thought. I have no clue who I would want playing Faith, the MC. I'd need a cavalier strawberry headed fellow to play Icel, and I would want James Earl Jones to do the voice over for Chaos. I would want Anika Noni Rose to play the part of Queen Scintian. That's about as good as it gets for now lol!!
What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
Discovering certain truths about yourself can be a little terrifying when you're only fourteen and find out your decisions can determine the fate of four realms, as Faith is finding out the hard way.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
No clue right now. I'm in the middle of my umpteenth rewrite of this story so will decide later if I want to seek representation or take this one straight to the readers myself.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It's been years since I started the first draft so I can't remember.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I'd finished my first revision of KINGDOMS OF AZURNOTH and, at the time, there was a person in my life who thought it might be a good idea to try something similar to Azurnoth but different, because Azurnoth was very Tolkienesque. So, I pondered this for a bit and started jotting notes about a world unaware of the relationship it shared with three other realms and things built from there.
What else about this book would pique the reader's interest?
Chaos. I love Chaos. He is a wonderful dragon with personality. Readers who enjoy dragons, elves and journeys of discovery may find this story to their liking.
So there we have it. Chaos, you can rest easy. I will get to you. I really will. Just please be patient with me and the overbearing voices in my head. Only a writer can type something like that and know others will understand exactly what that means lol!!
I'm supposed to pick a specific handful of people but I really want to know from one and all, how are things going with you WiP?
