What is the title of your Work In Progress?
Where did the idea for your WIP come from?
I recently found an old manuscript of mine, and one of the secondary characters just needed to be broken out of that story and given her own fresh take on the world. Add to that a new angle on the traditional vampire story and it all came together nicely.
What genre does your WIP fall under?
Which actors would you chose to play the characters in a movie rendition?
I'll have that answer by the end of the book, but I'm not there yet.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your WIP?
Tortured firebug arsonist hunts an organization of energy-sucking vampires in a near-future Los Vegas.
Is your WIP due for publication or represented?
I'll do the normal query round with this book, and publish it on the Kindle in early 2014 if I don't get any takers.
How long did it take you to write?
Draft is due January 31st, 2013, but I expect to have it worked out and ready for beta-readers much sooner than that.
What other works in your genre would you compare it to?
Nothing actually comes to mind, as this is a very difficult kind of protagonist, and a very different kind of enemy for her overcome. There's elements of procedural in this, which gives the book it's own special kind of flavor.
Which authors inspired you to write this WIP?
Touch of Poppy Z. Brite, light touch of Stephen King.
What else might pique our interest in this WIP?
My own version of a Scooby-gang, a band of failing-yet-exuberant ghost-hunters who get drug into a war with vampires that they had no idea existed.
