Blog Hop

My friend, Lilliam Rivera, asked me to participate in a blog hop.  The object of the hop is to talk about my writing, so here it goes.

What is the working title of your book/story/whatever?

My book has no working title.  It was called “The Tectonics of Clouds,” “The Terra-ists,” and “Ecomancer Blues,” but they were all shot down by the editors who have read it.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

The idea for the book came from my many angsts about my years in Los Angeles and my worries about the near future in terms of climate change, war, and new disruptive technologies.  At the moment I live in the near future.
What genre does your book fall under?

It would definitely be categorized as some sort of science fiction.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

Hah-hah. Affleck, The Rock, and we’ll find something for Emma Thompson because she’s one of my favorite humans on earth.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Oh, we are nowhere near that yet.
What is the longer synopsis of your book?

We are even farther away from that.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

I will shop it around the formal routes before I self-publish.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I am still entrenched in the first draft. So forever.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?

My wife. You may think that’s hokey, but, I was done with writing, I met her, and now I’m in fancy writing programs. Life’s a lot easier with a muse.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

It’s about addiction, Hollywood, reality television, terra forming, assassinations, and screenwriting. I would read it, and I’m very discerning.

According to the rules of the hop I have invited other writers to post their answers to these questions on their blogs.  I’ll update this post to let you know who is participating.
