The talented Jessica Freely invited me to participate in this and it sounded like fun. I have several projects in various stages of progression, so I’ve decided to answer these questions about a novel that will be released in February or March.
What is the working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
The book is set in Venice, with forays to other places in central Europe. The idea came to me last year, when I was lucky enough to live in Croatia and to spend a week in beautiful Venice.
What genre does your book fall under?
Contemporary m/m romance with a suspense twist.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?
Jeff would be a young Paul Bettany, I think, but with a California accent.
And Cleve looks a little like Raffaello Balzo, only with sleeve tattoos and an American accent:
I’d never actually heard of Raffaello Balzo before, but that link up above has some really nice photos. 🙂
What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?
When Jeff Dawkins is dumped by his boyfriend, he takes a solo trip to Venice, where he meets mysterious Cleve–a handsome and potentially dangerous man.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre.
