What is the working title of your next book?The Poison Court
(Though I have also been working on Changeling Hearts
recently, and plan to open up Pinion
as soon as I have an S&3 on Poison.)Where did the idea come from for the book?
The original idea was Savedra and the Crime-fighting Demimonde. But then it grew too much plot for one book and split into two. This is Savedra and the Foreign Spies, and the next one will be Crime-fighting Demimonde.What genre does your book fall under?
Fantasy.What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
Sadly, Jaye Davidson is too old to play Savedra anymore. Isis King is too skinny (and I have no clue if she can act), but might do in a pinch. Varis continues to be Richard O'Brien, and the Iskari mage Zureyya is RuPaul. Nikos and Ashlin are Kal Penn and Katee Sackhoff. I haven't cast the Iskari court yet.What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Savedra must navigate foreign intrigue and treachery to protect her uncle, save the sister of a dead friend, and prevent an international incident that could lead to war.Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Unless something catastrophic happens, it will be represented by arcaediaHow long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
I don't know yet! Prior experience tells me it will take about a year. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Barbara Hambly is my constant inspiration, but in this case I'm drawing more from historical mysteries than fantasy novels.Who or what inspired you to write this book?
My love of Savedra, and my pathological addiction to spies. Also, the @($ fourth Isyllt book hasn't gelled yet.What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?
Spies, intrigue, politics, and pretty dresses.
I'm not tagging anyone, but go forth and meme if it makes you happy.
