Inner Harbor, Baltimore, MD
Alicia Dean tagged me in the fun activity The Next Big Thing. It’s a blog circle where authors tag each other, giving fellow authors an opportunity to share their current Works in Progress (WIP).
Here are the questions I was asked to answer….

What is your working title of your book?
Ghostly Voices

Where did the idea come from for the book?
My daughter. LOL. This is the third book in my Hauntings at Inner Harbor series, and I knew books one and two right away. My daughter helped me flush the main idea for this book.

What genre does your book fall under?
Contemporary paranormal romance.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Ian Somerhalder and Rumer Willis

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A psychic-medium whose painful experiences with ghosts have left her empty and disheartened must choose between keeping a promise to herself and helping a handsome doctor rid himself of a dangerous ghost.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
This book will be published as part of a series at a publisher.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Still working on it. Hope to be finished within four weeks.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
It’s a little bit like Grey’s Anatomy-meets-Ghost-meets-The Wire.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I have always loved the city of Baltimore and knew its history would lend itself to some fun ghost stories.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
The heroine is a psychic-medium, but circumstances have made her hate her so-called gift. I think she is going to have some fun conversations with Edgar Allan Poe who lived in Baltimore for a few years, and died there, too. Hereafter, book one of this series, releases in early December!

Tag, you’re it…
