The Next Big Thing - Pam?

So, David Dunwoody approached me with this new ‘Tag you’re it’ thing for authors. A viral way for us to all get our stuff out there. For us to try to get those who follow us or subscribe to see the work of other writers. We’re all in this together so let’s help each other out.

The way it works is you answer the ten questions, then tag other authors, challenging them to do the same. They answer the questions and tag others. They also tag and credit the person that roped them into it. Okay, so allow me to say, if you do not do this, it’s ok, it’s not a chain letter. But if you do it, think of the dozens of new people that can see your work.

So here are my answers to the questions. I chose my book, Pam. Not that it’s anywhere near the next big thing, but I can dream.

What is your working title of your book?

Where did the idea come from for the book?
Out of nowhere to be honest and with the help of a fellow authors, Kirk and Sonia, it formed.

What genre does your book fall under?
Murder/Mystery or psychological thriller.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Charlize Theron as Pam.  Cameron Diaz as Sharon and Tim Daly (Wings) as Desmond Andrews

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A psychiatrist battles his sex addiction while helping his patient solve the murder of her children.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Self published

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

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Fifty Shades of Gray meets Helter Skelter

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
All the bad reviews that said I write gay porn and erotica over one implied scene in a pandemic novel.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It’s like nothing else I have ever written. It has sex in it, real sex, well fiction sex. But no implied sex. No beating around the bush in the book (No pun intended) That way if someone wants to review it and say I write erotica, they won’t be far off this mark.

And that’s it.

I hereby tag
