The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

So I am a total slacker and didn't realize today was Wednesday until I woke up this morning. Whoops! Otherwise I would have had this completely finished and ready to go but nevertheless. Here it is:

Welcome to this blog hop.

What is a blog hop? Basically, it’s a way that readers can discover new authors, because with bookstores closing and publishers not promoting new authors as much, we need to find a way to introduce readers to authors they may not see in their local bookstore.

Here you have the chance to find many new authors. Here you’ll find information about me, my book and what I’m working on now Also see links below to other authors you might like to check out.

I’d like to thank fellow author Komal Kant for tagging me to participate. You can see her Blog Hop post here.


In this particular hop, my fellow authors and I, in their respective blogs, have answered 10 questions where you get to learn about our books or our current work in progress as well as some insights into our process, from characters and inspirations to plotting and cover decisions. I hope you enjoy it!

Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and questions. Here is my Next Big Thing!

1: What is the title of your book?


I recently published my first novel: Lark

2: Where did the idea come from for the book?


I dreamt one of the scenes in Lark and it just sorta branched out from there.

3: What genre does your book come under?


YA Fantasy Romance

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Oh gosh, right now I have no idea. I can picture the characters in my head and I like Chace Crawford for Jacoby but no idea who would play Mia.

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Mia thinks she is completely ordinary, until she discovers she is the illegitimate daughter of the Light Elf King and there is a prophecy predicting her role in the battle between good and evil.

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?

It is self-published.


7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

It took me 3 months to write the first draft of Lark so I'm hoping for the same time frame this time around (I'm busy writing the sequel!)

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

Well, going off of a few of my reviews I suppose it could be compared to Amanda Hocking's Trylle Trilogy.

9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?

I remember telling Komal that I wish I could write a book because I had always wanted to but lacked the confidence to try. She told me that I was writer and that I could do it and she made me believe her. A few months later I had the "dream" and the next day I started writing my first novel.

10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

Though there are two "boys" (and I use the term "boys" loosely since one happens to be a 187 year old elf) it isn't really a love triangle. I know some people are really "anti-love triangle" (though I know others who love them). I wouldn't consider it to be one because I think it's pretty obvious that one of boys really isn't right for her and Mia knows it too.



Since I'm a total slacker blogger these days, I forgot to invite 5 other authors to participate BUT I might have some links to share with you later! :)

  1. I always knew you were a writer! And I enjoy love triangles if they're done well, and yours definitely is! <3
