The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

I was tagged to participate in this blog hop by Kim Fielding. Be sure to check out her answers about her WIP on her blog!

What is the working title of your book?
Seeking Solace

Where did the idea come from for the book?
Back in 2006, my best friend died in a car accident. To cope with the grief, I started writing. This WIP is a rewrite of that original story.

What genre does your book fall under?
Contemporary romance and suspense.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?
oh gosh. I wish I knew more actors. Andrew Garfield and Matt Bomer are my usual default answers. I just love them both. Andrew Garfield fits Efren, the main character.

What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?
When Efren is drowning in guilt and sorrow, he meets Devlin and learns the solace to his pain is love. (Well, that was super cheesy)

Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?
I plan to submit it to Dreamspinner Press.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I honestly don't remember. Maybe a year. Maybe 6 months. It's been a long time since I finished the first draft.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre.
I'm terrible at comparisons, so I honestly don't know.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I had an online friend who suggested and encouraged me to write it as a way to vent. I guess she inspired me.

What else about your book might interest the reader?
Aside from the main character, it has a sexy private eye and a gorgeous Irishman.
