The Next Big Thing!

I was tagged by the fabulous Faith Van Horne to do the Next Big Thing. Thanks, Faith!

 So, this is what I'm working on:

What is the working title of your next book?
Dirty Little Liars, to be released early 2013. 

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Where did the idea come from for the book?
It was inspired by two of my favorite tv shows: Scandal and White Collar!
Cast of Scandal ABC Thursdays @ 10PM

Cast of White Collar USA Tuesdays @ 10PM
What genre does your book fall under?
Contemporary Romance.

How long does it take to write the first draft of your manuscript?
This first draft only took 30 days! The revisions, however, have taken a lot longer. 

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Down to You by M. Leighton or Naked (The Blackstone Affair Part 1) by Raine Miller.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Juliette would be played by Jennifer Love Hewitt and Tyler Chase would be played by the dreamy Matt Bomber.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I simply wanted to write a sexy story, with fun characters and slightly questionable morals!
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
In preparing to write the book I did a lot of research on con men and politicians. It turns out, they aren't that different! But there is an incredible amount of research on body language, behavioral analysis and social engineering that I found fascinating. Some of  the subtle characteristics and techniques used in this "human hacking" are built into the key characters.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Juliette Morgan longs to know the truth about her parent's death, but an ambitious politician with killer blue eyes, and  a dazzling smile may prove to be the ultimate distraction.
