The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

The wonderfully awesome Aisling Mancy invited me to participate in The Next Big Thing Blog Hop and I couldn't resist this ongoing game in which authors talk about their favourite thing: their work, more particularly, their Work in Progress.

1. What is the working title of your book?

PA to a Sex God

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?

I have absolutely no idea.. it just kind of happened... I was going to write a story of two guys at a convention, one the actor in a procedural cop show, the other a fan who volunteers as a helper. Turned into a bodyguard book instead. Go figure... Then it turned into a series of Bodyguard books under the banner *Bodyguards Inc*

3. What is the genre of the book?

Male/Male contemporary romance.

4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Matthew Gray Gubler and Jensen Ackles

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Bodyguard Adam Freeman poses as a PA to tabloid sex god Logan Brady and faces fans, rumours and guns.

6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency/publisher?

Love Lane Books

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

Still writing it!

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

My Sanctuary series with Love Lane Books

9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?

Watching bromance in procedural cop shows and Supernatural was definitely my inspiration!

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

Actors closeted because they think they will lose their jobs. A bodyguard who uses his brain as well as his brawn.

Here’s a list of awesome authors I think you should check out. They will be posting their own *next big thing* on the dates next to their names:

Diane Adams
Meredith Russell

    1. Thank you Debby... hope you enjoy... Hugs XXXX

  2. I can't wait. If it's anything like your "Sanctuary" series then I know it will be an awesome read. It is one of my favorite series. As for "Love Lane Books", the site was very easy to deal with. I had no problems once I got to it. The only trouble I had was actually finding it. I had to go through a link on a previous post. (The one announcing "Sanctuary 6" was available.) It shouldn't be a problem for me now since I bookmarked it as a fav, but I had a heck of a time before that. Anyways, I'm happy now that I have "The Journal of Sanctuary One". I'll be reading that tonight. Congrats again on the site!

    1. Thank you Jase... I hope as it goes along Google will index the site... Let me know what you think of the latest Sanctuary book.... Hugs RJ XXXXX
