Since this Wednesday is set aside for the IWSG,
I thought I’d post a little light fluff for today.
What is the working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
From song lyrics—30 Seconds To Mars’ Hurricane.
What genre does your book fall under?
Adult psychological thriller
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
When I wrote the book, I had Andy Whitfield in mind for my male protag, Tyler Karras. Alas, Andy has since passed from cancer, but I still can’t picture anyone else. RIP Andy.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Vengeance tastes sweet the day Tyler Karras pledges his wife's killer to sex-traffickers in San Francisco's Russian Mafia, but when he mistakenly targets the wrong woman and jeopardizes the deal to secure his brother’s freedom, Tyler’s forced to protect them all from the very enemy he's unleashed.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
It will be traditionally published by Sapphire Star Publishing and released on October 18th.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Including the outline, 3 months.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Hurricane’s lyrics—“Tell me, would you kill to save a life? Would you kill to prove you’re right?” made me wonder what could drive a decent man toward violence. And from that, The Mistaken was borne.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
From my CP, Lisa Regan: “The Mistaken’s protagonist goes on a pretty despicable downward spiral, and the reader is with him from high to low to high again. The book questions how far decent human beings are willing to go in the name of revenge and how to put one’s life back together after horrible tragedy. It asks questions about forgiveness, for others and ourselves once we’ve crossed the line. The main characters aren’t police or military or special ops forces. They’re just regular old people.”
And tag, you're it!
