What is the title of your work in progress?
Torn (Bound Trilogy Book Two)
Where did the idea come from for the book?
Torn is the sequel to Bound… I haven’t decided yet how much I can say without giving away book one spoilers. But the idea came partly from my dislike of insta-love in YA romances and a desire to see characters forced to stand on their own and learn who they are before they get their happily ever after. The plot continues a few months after the end of Bound, and sends the main characters (and a new addition) away to continue the task they left off there.
Was that vague enough?
What genre does your book fall under?
Mature YA Fantasy. It’s a bit darker than Bound, and one character deals with some decidedly non-YA issues at the beginning, but we’re leaving it there for now.
What is a one sentence synopsis for your book?
Working on it…
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Self-published. Independent publishing has been a fantastic experience for me so far, and I look forward to seeing what comes next!
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I wrote the first draft of Torn during November and December of 2012. Revised in November/December 2013, but still looked rather sparse. So it’s been over a year and a half, but the poor book was shelved for most of that time while I worked on Bound.
No official release date yet, but I’m aiming for March 2015.
What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?
Readers should prepare themselves for big surprises, new characters as well as old friends and enemies, bigger adventure, a few darker turns, and a whole lot of fun.
…I’ll come back to this when I figure out that whole spoiler thing. 😉
