What is the working title of your book? Like Suzie, I'm between WIPs right now, not because I don't have tales to write, but because I'm swamped with edits and favors for friends. So I'm going to talk about the book coming soon that I'm most excited about. It's an anthology some talented writer friends and I have banded together to write and self published. It's called Cauldron of Tales.
What genre does your book fall under? It's an anthology of Halloween short stories, all revolving around witches, spelled, potion, love... Some is erotic, some dark, some funny. It falls under so many tags, I can't list them all here.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? I have two short stories in it. I think I would choose Keira Knightley for Sabine in The Devil's Berries and A Sappho Spell...hm. Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez are what I visualize. They were smoking on screen together, would be smokin' in my tale.
What is the one sentence synopsis of your book? When five witches with wild imaginations get together, the pot boils over with trouble, romance, and sensuality.
Will your book be self published or represented by an agency? Self.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? I can't speak for the others, but we've been corroborating since August to put this together. Some of the tales were already penned, some weren't.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? I really can't say as this an antho and it's all different. I'd say The Devil's Berries will raise a few eyebrows though. Not quit Selena Kitt, but not for the faint of heart.
Who or what inspired you to write this book? Things happen for a reason. I wrote my stories for a publisher anthology. I encourage some talented writers I knew to join the anthology. They all wrote stories too. The publisher crashed. So we did our own thing.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? There's something for everyone in this. You want darkness? You want to have goose bumps? You want to laugh? You want to get aroused? This may be for you. :)
Cauldron of Tales releases on Amazon October 1st. It is, however, available on Smashwords (perfect for you nonKindle users. :) )
Blurb: When five witches with wild imaginations get together, the pot boils over with trouble, romance, and sensuality.
In The Devil’s Berries, readers are taken back to Renaissance England where Sabine, facing her last night alive, reveals how the witch really came to be associated with the broomstick. Will her nightly visitor bring her more trouble or will he give her peace?
Cindy can’t decide if she’s Hexed Or Vexed her longtime friend, Killen. All she knows is that one second he was her very manly friend, and the next, he’s a dog. Can her Witchy Group on Facebook help her fix the mess, or will she be burdened with a comical canine companion the rest of her days?
Willow Vance is a poor excuse for a witch, and by some stroke of luck, the six-year-old Past Potion she crafted worked. When the hexed warlock finds out about Willow's curse, he will stop at nothing for her to lift the spell. Willow can run, but does she want to?
Alone for Halloween, Bryn is ready to take some frustrations out on her purple battery-operated toy, but she’s in for a surprise when the Toy Soldier becomes a flesh-and-blood man. Grateful to be free of his plastic curse, Byron will do anything for her...no matter how naughty.
A dance of seduction under The Light of the Moon turns into a night of passion, but will that be enough for Aponi to keep the man of her dreams enchanted? Or will the flame that was ignited die out just as quickly as it sparked?
Danica finds herself confused after a trip to the carnival with her best friend and coworker. She’s been attracted to Lisette for months, but are her feelings really being reciprocated, or was there A Sappho Spell cast in Madame Lilith’s tent?
Thank you for stopping by and I'm tagging....
