1. What is the working title of your next book?
All the Things Left Unsaid

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
A combination of personal experience and my overactive imagination (division of subject matter withheld ;) ).

3. What genre does your book fall under?
See, that's a toughie. It's either general fiction or a non-tech sci-fi novel.

4. What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
All the actors I'm thinking of are technically older than my characters, not that Hollywood cares about such things. Ryan Gosling and Natalie Portman? Ugh. I don't want to do the casting... :)

5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
When Natalie Reed wakes up in the hospital after having a seizure and discovers she can hear what people are thinking, she quickly learns the only person she can trust is her best friend, Tucker Campbell, but even he has secrets left unsaid. (Look at me, writing copy!)

6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
That all depends on if anyone will pick it up. I intend to try to get it represented first.

7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
I don't have a completed draft, but the plan is to have it done no later than 8/15/2013 (my 40th birthday).

8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I haven't read anything like it that I can recall, but lately I read more nonfiction than fiction.

9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Since some point in elementary school I have thought I had at least one book in me. I have a good number of people encouraging me to finish, but not a single who.

10. What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?
The telepathy is proximity-based, only able to be "heard" in about a 10 or 12 foot radius. The thoughts are "louder" the closer a person is, and physical contact makes it nearly impossible for her to focus on anything but what the other person is thinking before she learns to compensate. In my head, it's more a study in human nature and how we present ourselves, both in general and in relationships more specifically. Even if you could control it, would you to know what everyone was thinking?

I love the premise of this story, but moreover, I love the relationship you've already started to build. It's wonderful.

I also know that you will reach your goal. You are so determined! GO A! <3

This sounds like something I would totally read! Especially because I have a weakness for male-female BFF relationships :D

There may or may not be "benefits" included in this friendship... :) Bantery BFFs are totally my jam, though! :)

This sounds awesome! I love your title and your concept. GO WRITE! *waves pom poms*

Pom poms and everything?! I need to clone myself so my family won't miss me!

My big fear at this point is that I finally have THE idea, but I won't be able to pull it off... It's great having so many supportive writing buddies on my flist! Thanks!
