Next Best Thing Blog Hop
I’ve been invited by the lovely author Yvonne Nicolas to join the sisterhood of the traveling authors in a ‘blog hop’. I’ve been asked to answer a few questions then share with you my reader friends the other sister/authors who have done the same. So here we go:
What is the working title of your next book? My next book is the third installment in the Battaglia Mafia Series. The book is called ‘La Famiglia’
Where did the idea come from for the book? The first two books in the series tell of a love between a Sicilian/Irish Mafia boss and a Black American woman. The third installment is all about the family they rule and the love that binds them.
What genre do your books fall under? All books I write fall under the multi-cultural romance genre. The books feature AA woman with men of different races!
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie? I love Kerry Washington. I would love her to be a heroine from my book. As for male leads, wow too many to name. I’d love to see David Gandy as a male lead in my book turned movie.
What is a one sentence synopsis of your book? Hot steamy romance with a dash of danger on the side.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency/publisher? I am a publisher and all my books are published by my company so this one will be as well.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? I wrote my mafia books in 2005 thru to 2007.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? My series has the dramatic flare of The Godfather and the steamy romantic flavor of the Thorn Birds because it spans so many years.
Who or What inspired you to write this book? This book was inspired by a soap fandom called Jovan.
What else about your book might interest the reader? It’s a series, meaning you will have more than 1 book to follow. I believe so far I’m committed to nine books in this series.
