So, fellow author, A. Christopher Drown invited me to join in a blog hop.

Thank you, Aaron.

I'm a little late getting with it, but here goes.

To join in, first your left foot, then your right...

Really, here's a chance for you, the reader, to get introduced to myself, an author you might have trouble finding in bookstores, and, if you like what I have to say and the samples of fiction available on my site, a chance also to click on the links to some other authors I know and continue getting introduced to new authors.  

For you to get to know me, I've answered the following questions:

 1: What is the working title of your book? 

            Penultima (a short novel, or maybe just a novella) 

2: Where did the idea come from for the book?   

            The idea came from that foggy land from which all my ideas originate, the land of forgotten daydreams. 

3: What genre does your book come under? 

            Dystopian Sci fi/horror? 

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

            That’s one to which I’ve never given any previous thought.

                        The three heroes:  Chuck – Somebody middle aged but vigorous enough for action, maybe George                                                                            Clooney in a beard.  

                                                      Charles – An unknown actor would probably be best .  

                                                      Charlotte – Gemma Arterton

                        The Mayor of Penultima, our villain – Gary Oldman

 5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? 

Three survivors of a zombie apocalypse are late for the train that would take them to the promised land and are stuck instead in the dystopian town of Penultima from which there is now nowhere to go. 

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?           

            I fully expect it to be published by an independent publisher. 

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

            Six months, I think. 

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

            I wouldn’t hazard a guess.  I don’t think I’ve read enough in this particular area. 

 9: Who or what inspired you to write this book? 

            Most, though certainly not all, of the science fiction stories I have read leave religion and faith out of the future world they envision.  Zombies have been of particular interest to the reading public of late, so I thought I’d write a story which featured both.  The zombies quickly became a sideline to the main story. 

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

      The three main characters all have the same name, and the trains grow wings.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Below you will find authors who will be joining me by blog. Do be sure to bookmark and add them to your calendars for updates and exciting developments.  They are author/editor Herika R. Raymer, of Clockwork Spells and Magical Bells, author A. Christopher Drown, of A Mage of None Magic, and author Hilaire Smith of Dauhter of Destiny.                                                                                                                                                           .
