So, before all that happens, it's time for me to talk about The Next Big Thing! No, I haven't suddenly turned into Simon Cowell (God forbid - I'll take his money though...) and discovered south west Durham's answer to The Wanted. No, it's a lot more exciting than that!
OK, maybe it isn't, but it all depends on whether you actually like my books or not, because The Next Big Thing is all to do with my latest Work in Progress.
Last Wednesday I was tagged by the fabulous author, and friend of mine, Mandy Baggot in her The Next Big Thing post, so this week it's my turn!
The Next Big Thing works like this - I answer ten questions about my current Work in Progress, and then tag five other writers who will, hopefully, tell you all about their latest projects next Wednesday.
So, here we go then...
So, I spent quite a bit of time last week trawling the internet for pictures of hot young men that could play the part of professional footballer Ryan Fisher (it was such a chore!), and then I found him. Somebody who could really pull it off. He had to be British, he had to be hot and handsome, and he had to be under 35 because the character of Ryan Fisher is twenty-eight. Stand up Mr. Tom Hardy!
Now, as far as finding an actress that I would love to play the part of the main female character, sports reporter Amber Sullivan, this was a much easier choice. Only one name came to mind for me, and that was the fantastic Sarah Parish.
my absolute favourite British actresses - is the only person I would want to play her. She'd be my ideal choice. No question.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
This is another hard question, because it's something I've not given a lot of thought to at the minute. However, as the book is set in and around the world of professional football, I've got to use some footballing terms, haven't I? So, how about...
When extra time isn't enough to win the game...
I quite like that one actually... considering I've just thought of it now...
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
So, there you have it. A little bit of an insight into what I'm working on right now, a book I'm hoping to have ready to publish in the early part of 2013. Watch this space for updates and more details as the writing continues.
Want to find out what a few other authors are working on right now? Well, here are the five fabulous writers I'm tagging, and links to their own blogs so you can check them and their books out, and then hopefully find out next Wednesday just what it is they're all working on at the minute...
*The title of the book has now been changed to 'Striker' and is now available to download from both Amazon and Kobo!
