The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

I've been tagged by Twiysted Writer

Here are my answers to the Next big thing blog hop:
What is your working title of your book?

Love Remains

Where did the idea come from for the book?

It was this movie I've watched twice and each time I've kind of jumped in the middle of it, but Nicholas Cage is in it and he's this big shot and a sworn bachelor but he stops at the small store on his way and there's this guy behind the register that strikes him odd. The next morning, he wakes in the house with a wife and two kids. So, if you know the title of the movie I beg you, put it in the comments. 

What genre does your book fall under?

Since there's an angel in it, I'm characterizing it under a paranormal romance. 

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

Haven't thought that far yet. 

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

A single, career oriented woman returns home from her business trip and finds a husband and two children she has no idea how they've got in her house. 

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

I'm not agented yet, but will start querying once the book is completed. 

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

I'm not done with the first draft yet. I do edits as I go along so it will take a while. 

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

Anything that has to do with angels, or with single women who abandoned the idea of family for the sake of career. 

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

That would be my sister-in-law, but don't tell her. 

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

There's lots of great love scenes as always, some travelling to Croatia as my signature style and just general life exploring questions of what if...

  1. Zrinka, I like your idea of this book, its really intruging. I loved the movie BTW, and own a copy of The Family Man.

    1. Thanks Lyn. Now I know the title of the movie that's been haunting me for a few years. It's intriguing to me to see what would've happened to us if we chose the other way, the path less travelled, instead of well beaten one.
