First, I'd like to wish a very happy birthday to my father-in-law! <3
Second is this:
What is the working title of your book?
The Paper Magician
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Forced to give up her dreams of enchanting metal to become a paper magician, Ceony spends two days apprenticing under Magician Thane before his angry lover literally rips his heart out, leaving her to save his life.
What genre does your book fall under?
Young Adult Fantasy. Could call it YA Romantic Fantasy, though we're staying chastely on the Jane Austen side of romance.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
For Ceony, Emma Stone. Though I might be biased because of her hair color.
Magician Thane was harder to pinpoint, but Brandon Hillock is pretty close.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Aiming for agency/publisher.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Uh... a month-ish. Not sure on exact time.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Dianna Wyn Jones's Howl's Moving Castle. It was my inspiration.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Part one was Howl's Moving Castle. After I got the idea for the book, I wanted it to have the same feel.
I had wanted to write a book that included a character who could enchant origami for a while. In my head I always saw him as a side-character to another story, but then on a long trip from Salt Lake City to Moscow I came up with an idea that made the book entirely about folding paper. :)
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It's really short. That means less commitment. ;) And my protagonist is about a millimeter tall for the bulk of the story.
Anyone who wants to do this hop should, and then link me to their post! Always interesting to learn about others' books. However, I am going to specifically call out Hayley Stone for this one. TELL ME YOUR SECRETS!
