I’ve recently been invited to participate in the WIP Blog Hop. Basically, this blog hop involves answering seven questions about my current work in progress, tagging five new participants, and linking back to the person who nominated me. I was nominated by Juliet B. Madison, author of the DI Frank Lyle series. Here’s a link to her blog where you can find everything you ever wanted to know about her series: http://julietmadisoncrimeauthor.wordpress.com/wip-blog-tour-murder-in-the-wings/
Here we go…
1.What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
My main character is Rowan Murdoch. She’s fictional.
2) When and where is the story set?
The story is set in modern times in a suburb of Los Angeles, California.
3) What should we know about him/her?
Rowan is a senior in high school who loves to perform in musicals and dramatic performances. Her father is the football coach, so between helping her dad with paperwork and her own extracurricular interests, she spends a great deal of time at school.
4) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
During the previous school year, Rowan suffered a traumatic experience that has resulted in decreased self-confidence and panic attacks. She thinks her life is moving forward when she tries out for the senior play and lands the part of Juliet, but her developing relationship with Romeo has dredged up some of the issues she’s tried to ignore.
5) What is the personal goal of the character?
Rowan’s goal is to graduate from high school, forget about the trauma from the past, and graduate with a teaching degree. She would ultimately like to be a drama teacher or choir director in a high school.
6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?
The working title is Sweet Sorrow, and you can read a sample on Wattpad.
7) When can we expect the book to be published?
Beats the heck out of me. No, really. I have no idea. I’m about halfway through with the initial draft, so it could be anywhere from six months to two years before I publish it. Be sure to subscribe to my blog and you’ll be the first to find out when I’ve completed the book.
