Next Big Thing - an Author's Meme

Sorry I haven't been on LJ/DW much, I've been trying to finish several projects at the same time. I owe lots of birthdays and I will get to them I promise. I also need to get back to the 100 Things meme :).

First of all I bring you an author's meme called The Next Big Thing.

Soph tagged me for this for next week (Wed 19th Sept) and her Next Big Thing post can be found here. It's all about her current WiP; a novel based on "Bonds of Fire". Check out her post to find out interesting things, like who she would cast in a movie version :).

Now I need 5 authors from my circles/flist to tag to post about their current work in progress on Wed 26th Sept. If you are interested, please comment (first come first served).

This is how it works:

1) You say yes you would like to be tagged.
2) From Wed 19th when I will officially tag you, you start looking for people to tag.
3) On Wed 26th Sept you answer the following questions on your blog about your current WiP (see Soph's post for a great example of how it's done) (it would also be nice if you linked back to my Next Big Thing post where I tagged you ::g::):
1. What is the working title of your book?
2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
3. What genre does your book fall under?
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
5. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
6. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
9. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
10. Tag you’re it! (this is where you link to the five authors you have tagged)

I hope there are more people who would like to play :). It's a great way to find out about other authors and what they're up to as well at highlight your latest work.

Official Rules:
***Answer the ten questions about your current WIP (Work In Progress)
***Tag five other writers/bloggers and add their links so we can hop over and meet them.
