The Next Big Thing

Exciting new author Jerrie Alexander tagged me in this interview game. Her new novel is GREEN-EYED DOLL, due out December 7, 2012. You can check her out at  .

I tagged some other authors at the bottom, so be sure to check out their answers and their books too.

Amazon eBook and Print
Q. What is the title of your book? 

A. TIME OF DEATH. It's available now from Amazon.

Q. Where did the idea come from for the book?

A. Psychic phenomena have always interested me, and I love Charleston and the coast. Art is another interest, so when the three things came together in my head, it seemed like a natural. I love the characters too. 

Q. What genre does your book fall under?

A. Suspense with a little romance.

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

A. Teri Hatcher is Isobel, maybe Jason O’Mara for Connor, and the cover model, whoever she is, for Alex. Her face, especially the eyes, is perfect.

Q. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A.  Artist Alex Jenrette draws scenes of violence with uncanny accuracy, but will anyone believe she never saw them happen?

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

A. Self-published, my choice for the foreseeable future.

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

A. Of and on for more than a year.
Q. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

A. Maybe a bit like Nora Roberts's Carolina Moon. May I mention my own? Haunting Refrain, which will be free Nov 14-18. J

Q. Who or what inspired you to write this book?

A. My grandmother, who had a psychic ability much like Rosalind’s in the book. It really does run in the family, but I didn't get the fuzzy gene. 

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

A. The bad guys. I could see them so clearly, and one made me cry.

I've read Time of Death, and it's a fast-paced, well-plotted story. The hook is original. This book is well worth reading on so many levels.
