Some time ago, the very nice Calinda Be told me about this Blog Hop event and asked me if I was interested. Well, I am always interested in getting involved in things that imply either writing or talking about writing, so I said yes. It has been fun to answer this questions, but at the same time it has been a bit difficult too. Some questions are hard for me: a one-sentence synopsis? Please, I am a chatterbox, how am I suppose to sum up a whole novel in just one sentence LOL Jokes apart, it has been a pleasure to be part of this Blog Hop event.

Now for the Rules:

***Answer the ten questions about your current WIP (Work In Progress) on your blog

***Tag five other writers/bloggers and add their links so we can hop over and meet them.

***Thank the person who tagged you in this Blog Hop.

It’s that simple.

Thanks Calinda Be for tagging me!

Ten Interview Questions for My Next Big Thing:

What is the working title of your WIP book?
Wired to You.

Where did the idea come from for the book?
The idea for this book came from my own experience. After finishing a long relationship, I felt I needed to write about it. So this book is a semi-autobiographic love story, based on facts about my real life that I am turning into fiction.

What genre does your book fall under?
Romance (but I am trying it not to be a piece of chick-lit).

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
The male protagonist is Italian, so I think that Gabriele Rossi would perform that role just perfectly well.
As for the female protagonist, and taking into account that it is a semi-autobiographical story, the actress would have to perform the role of me. I really don't know which actress I would choose to be me in a movie, but I think it would need to be a really independent and spunky actress.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A romantic story about two people whose hearts belong to different parts of the world, and who will fight against everything to make their love succeed.

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?
I’m about 7K words into my first draft, which I started for NaNoWriMo last year. I hadn't worked a lot in this novel since other projects were keeping me busy and I kind of forgot about this story, but I am hoping to finish it next November, since I will participate in NaNoWriMo once more.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I wouldn't like my novel to be similar to any other, but I guess that sometimes that is very difficult to achieve. We cannot control people thinking that our books reminded them a certain novel or story. But maybe I would compare this story to Danielle Steel's books (I hope I didn't sound too pretentious :D)

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
As I said before, this book has been inspired by my own story. It is semi-autobiographical, so the background of the story is real. My own love story and later break-up made me think that maybe I should write this book. I consider it like a kind of therapy. It is my way of closing that door to my past.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
People who like romance will like my story. Especially people who like romance that is not the conventional love story. I am trying to make it as original and different to the rest as possible. There are more and more long-distance relationships, so maybe people can be interested in reading a story about one of those relationships.
