Author Darcia Helle sure is creating a lot of work for me on the blog. 😉 First she tagged me for The Next Best Thing Blog Challenge. Then she tagged me AGAIN for the U Got the Look Blog Challenge.
Both challenges involve my work-in-progress On Best Behavior (The Conduct Series #3).
Author Gail Baugniet started The Next Best Thing HERE. The rules are:
Answer 10 questions about my current WIP (Work-In-Progress)
What is the working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
I decided to follow Gail by posting my answer to one question a week, with the hope of finishing the manuscript in ten weeks.
Sadly the past two weeks have been epic FAIL for me and I’ve forgotten to post my answers among all the giveaways I’ve been hosting. (And another giveaway starts tomorrow–stay tuned). So, I’m answering three questions today to catch up.
4) Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Actor Wentworth Miller is my absolute celebrity crush–he’s an easy pick to play Grant Madsen. I can’t remember this actress’s name but I can totally see her as Sophie Taylor.
5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Planning a wedding is never easy, especially when the Russian Mafia want you dead.
6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Neither–it will be published (I hope!) by Omnific Publishing, a small publisher I lurve.
And now onto U Got the Look!
The Look is a writing prompt, a game, another tagging event. This is how U Got “The Look” works: you take your current manuscript, search for the word “look”, and post the surrounding paragraphs. Lastly, you tag 5 blogging authors who you think will be a good choice for the game.
(I use the word “look” approximately 20,000 times in each manuscript so this should be no problem.)
And now I tag 5 author friends to get the “look”. No worries if you’ve already participated.
And finally, please join us on the Omnific Publishing Author, Author Blog Bounce! Instructions are HERE.

I love that Prison Break author. He has inspired several of my fictional heros.
Wentworth Miller = LOVE!I really like the sound of your new book! 😀
The Russian Mafia wanting you dead does throw a wrench in things.
Love your Grant and Sophie pairing!Great excerpt, too! Can't wait to read it! Which is, I'm sure you know, why I keep tagging you. 🙂
Angelina, I'm glad I'm not alone in being inspired (and turned on) by the brilliant Mr. Miller!
Thanks Kyra. Went was born in England, did you know that? I know all kinds of useless facts about him. *stalker*
Ha ha, Alex! Just a bit.
But Darcia, my writing slows DOWN when you keep tagging me ha ha.Thank you for your awesome support, chica.
You've got the funnest tags. 🙂 Thanks for including me. That totally looks like how I pictured Sophie! Love it when that happens. Nice excerpt from the book. Can't wait 'till Bad Behavior works its way up my to-read list.
My tags are funny? Oh no! 😉 I just slap every word I can think of up there–can you tell?I'm glad our visions of Sophie are in synch!I can't wait for you to read Bad Behavior, nor for me to read your next book!
