The Next Big Thing #2

Here it is! Cody answers ten questions about upcoming novel, Omorphi!

In a stunning turn of events, authors Jamie Deacon and Will Parkinson were ruthless kind enough to seek revenge on me and tag me in the Next Big Thing blog hop again! This is my second opportunity in this serial victimization blog hop to answer ten questions about my next big thing (O.o) and prey upon tag other ill-fated authors to perpetuate this chain letter blog hop under the threat of certain demise. It's a way of getting a chance to stalk find out about what attention seeking^your ^favorite authors who you have never heard of are up to while being introduced to authors who might be new to you. So, here goes...

What is the working title of your book?

     The working title of the novel that I would like to share with you today was Pretty. As the novel is now complete, its title is Omorphi ©2012.

Όμορφη. Ómorphi. Greek. Meaning pretty
Pretty. adj. /pritē/ Pleasing by delicacy or grace 

Where did the idea come from for the book?

      I wanted to write a story about the love and acceptance of a gay boy who likes to wear pretty things. In developing the story, I came across a picture that, to the best of my knowledge, is entitled Stairway to Heaven and defined the very beauty of what I had in mind.
I do not own the rights to this picture. 
It is a professional photograph
and I have been unable to locate its owner. 

What is the genre of the book?

     Gay Young Adult, Contemporary, Action-Romance

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

    For the role of Michael Sattler, it would be Nico Tortorella, and for the role of Christophoros Castle, it would be supermodel, Andrej Pejic.

Nico Tortorella                                      Andrej Pejic

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

     Pretty Christy has traveled several thousand miles to escape his abusive captors and has landed in Michael’s arms; and Michael will do almost anything to keep Christy from being dragged back to a life of hell.

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

     I am not certain yet.

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

     Two weeks.

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

      There is no story that I can truly compare it to.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

     We often disregard the undefined shades that exist between each of the bright hues of the QUILTBAG rainbow and I wanted to write a story that focused on one of the many shades in between each color of the rainbow.

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

     What extremes, peril, or devastating sadness, would you go to save the life of the one you love?

Look for The Next Big Thing blog posts from these awesome authors on or before February 13th!
