i not entirely sure i done this right ^_^

i am lucky enough to have met some of the most wonderful friends here online and i value them all tremendously, one of them has tagged me in some thing called ‘The next big thing’ i think it is called it is a series of connected blog posts that has the ambition of going viral let’s help it along ^_^ there’s questions and stuff so here goes:

firstly a little about my gorgeous friend her name is Nene Davies and she is an author from Australia and she can be found here along with details of her work   she is such a sweetheart and a wonderful friend i count myself lucky to have her as a friend and she is gentle and kind and caring.

now i suppose i best get on with some of the questions

1.  What is the working title of your current/next book?

ok, the book i am working on right now is called Saudade and it is in the editing stage now.

2.  Where did the idea come from?

well it is a mixture really i have always loved the slenderman story which is a sort of urban legend that has various episodes happening around the net but it went quiet at the same time as having scouted every last bit of information i could and devoured everything in sight i was bemoaning the lack of slenderman and was still writing my fourth book and my husband came up with an idea that i loved but won’t reveal now as i don’t want to give away spoilers ^_^ suffice it to say both my love of slenderman and my husbands idea came together and produced Saudade ^_^

3.  What genre does your book fall under?

Sigh this is always a difficult one for me i always have to pick the genre horror but it never sits well with me, don’t get me wrong i love being a horror writer but i prefer words like sinister, spine tingling, there isn’t really a catagory i have felt happy with yet, you see horror means something different to others they expect gore and slash happy stories/films and i do not like such films or books, i like stories or my stories anyway to have something to them i like scene setting, i like build up and i love to chill and spook people but i don’t like gore and i only include it when the story itself demands it, i still suffer stories taking control they write themselves through me ^_^ often have a paranormal edge although again i never write about vampires or wolves, i prefer ghosts ^_^ i love all things ghostly so the best label/genre i can think of is ermm ghosty kinda horror but not gore unless the story calls for it writer ^_^

4 .  What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?

hmm a hard one that umm i suppose for my main character i would want someone like kate hudson perhaps as for the other characters i would have to have help from my director and i would want only one director Terry Gilliam my fave director of all time ^_^

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

Ouch! that’s a nasty one ^_^ ok i shall take the opening page of my book and show you oooh a sneak preview coming up folks ^_^

ok this is quoted direct from my opening page of my book:

Saudade (Portuguese): The feeling of longing for someone that you love and is lost. Another linguist describes it as a “vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist. (from the book Saudade copyright kizzy lee 2013)

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

it will be self published

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

about two weeks but i then spent about two months so far editing it ^_^

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

ermm i don’t know i haven’t read anything quite like what i have written so as of yet i have nothing to compare it to.

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

slenderman i loved the whole thing so much i had to write my own extension of that on the first page i have written this book was inspired by slenderman ^_^

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

not sure it all depends on if they like murder, and of course slenderman ^_^

phew the end of the questions now all that remains is for me to hand over to the person i consider the Next Big Thing so i will have a good think there are such a lot of talented writers out there

Jess Sturman Coombes a wonderful author of thriller action books i have read and loved her work so to me after careful thinking i have put forward this wonderful writer as my considered Next Big Thing.
