Fellow author Debby Lee (No relation at all) recently tagged me in a blog. She sent me a list of questions that I’m to answer regarding my next book and post them to my blog. Now since I already told you about my October 2013 release, Warning Signs, a Harlequin Love Inspired Suspense story, here, I will tell you about my next book after that one. So here goes.
WHAT’S THE WORKING TITLE OF YOUR BOOK?
In Too Deep to be released mid 2014 with Love Inspired Suspense. Title may change. In fact, knowing my editor, it most likely will. Warning Signs used to have a working title of Forever Silenced. That’s just the way it works.
WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM FOR YOUR BOOK?
Well, first I love a good forensic anthropology story, especially when my heroine anthropologist gets to butt heads with a handsome cop to solve the case. But because I also participate in many events with the Creation Coalition here in New England, I wanted a character that has a strong faith in God as her creator, even when some of her colleagues don’t believe. I hope to inspire readers to stay strong in their faith.
Now because I write romance, the romantic conflict ensues when my hero needs evidence to trust in her because of his own past betrayals, but my heroine doesn’t want to live her life with her actions always under the microscope.
WHAT GENRE DOES YOUR BOOK FALL UNDER?
Inspirational Romantic Suspense
WHAT IS THE ONE SENTENCE SYNOPSIS OF YOUR BOOK?
Bones have been unearthed on the island, but the real trouble begins when Anthropologist Lydia Muir and the handsome sheriff, Wesley Grant, start digging deeper.
A long-haired Bradley Cooper and a sophisticated Jennifer Garner.
IS YOUR BOOK SELF PUBLISHED OR REPRESENTED BY AN AGENCY?
This will be published by Harlequin’s Love Inspired Suspense.
WHAT OTHER BOOKS WOULD YOU COMPARE YOUR STORY TO WITHIN YOUR GENRE?
I hate comparing my stories to others out there. I don’t want to compare this story to the T.V. show, Bones, either, even though that is the first thing that comes to mind. Like most writers my stories are unique and don’t follow another writer’s pattern. It keeps things fresh and surprising!
WHAT ELSE ABOUT YOUR BOOK MIGHT PIQUE THE READERS INTERESTS?
I was excited to return to the Island of Stepping Stones where Warning Signs takes place. So I got to revisit some of the characters from the first book. I hope you like them all!
