My Next Big Thing
Posted on November 18, 2012 by Pam Fudge
I have been tagged to write a post about my next big thing by DJKirkby The way it works is that I answer the questions below and then tag 5 other bloggers to do the same on their blogs on the 28th November.
What is the working title of your book?
I am currently working on It’s In The Cards which will be my eleventh novel.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
The idea for the book came when I sat down with a pad and played around with a few scenarios set around family life and threw in a few ‘what ifs?’
What genre does your book fall under?
Women’s fiction. I would say my writing style bears a passing resemblance to Cathy Kelly’s and Jane Elizabeth Varley’s because they also deal with family issues.
I would leave that decision up to whoever was in charge of the casting for the film.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Not everyone has a burning desire to fall in love and be married.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
So far I have followed the traditional publishing route and I hope that will continue.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
The manuscript is only half complete and so far it has taken 3 months.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I’ve always taken to heart the advice to ‘write about what you know’ and I know an awful lot about family life.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
A Comment from TheBookBag regarding a previous book was ‘If you’re looking for a deep book which you’ll ponder over then this isn’t the one for you, but if you’d just enjoy a good, light, well-written read then look no further.’ I would say that is what I'm aiming to achieve with each book that I write.
