The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

I was invited by the lovely ViviDumas to join this blog hop and have invited four more wonderful authors to participate. Please, stop by and enjoy the fun!

I'm giving you a quick peek at my upcoming release Diamond Mine. This is a futuristic story of love between a human slave and her alien master. 

What is the working title of your book?

Diamond Mine

Where did the idea come from for the book?

From my muse...don't tell her but she's a slave driver!

What genre does your book fall under?

Futuristic/Sci fi

Which actors would you choose to portray your characters in a movie?

I'd choose Hugh Jackman and Sanaa Lathan to play Calen and Lithia (Diamond)

What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?

Can a human slave and her alien master find love on planet Tares?

Will your book be self published or represented by an agency/publisher?

I am self publishing Diamond Mine

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

It took me several weeks until I felt comfortable enough to pursue publishing this piece

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I'm unsure. I haven't read any other futuristic books. I'm just on a science fiction kick lately.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

Besides my muse, my significant other because he loves me unconditionally. 

What else about your book might interest the reader?

I think readers will be interested in my heroine, Lithia. She's a slave who has been mistreated not only by the alien overseers, but by humans too, simply for befriending and falling in love with a young Taresnian warrior. She sought to change how the Taresnians mistreated slaves. When that didn't work, she adapted to her situation and never gave up hope while trying to protect her fellow humans even though they cared nothing for her.

Thanks so much for hanging out with me at my blog to learn more about Diamond Mine. Please visit the ladies below next Wednesday, 12/12/12 to check out their works in progress!
