The Next Big Thing! The Secret Door - paranormal romance

I just want to give a shout out to Jude Urbanski who invited me to The Next Big Thing Blog Hop. You can find Jude at:  If you have a minute stop on by her blog and find out what her next big thing is.

Now for my "Next Big Thing" 

What is the working title of your book?

The Secret Door

Where did the idea come from for the book?  

            This is book 4 in the Budapest Moon series and it was born out of book 3.  In book 3, Zoltan Kristos is the "bad" guy. He's a werewolf intent on making Morgan Duma his, but she doesn't want him. Zoltan does some questionable things - including turning Morgan into a werewolf herself. I wanted to tell Zoltan's story in book 4 and go about redeaming him. 

What genre does your book fall under?  

          This is a paranormal romance with werewolves and witches.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?  
Joseph Finnes inspiration for "Zoltan"
            For Zoltan, I'd pick Joseph Finnes. For Sophia, I'd pick Amy Adams as "Amelia Earhart" from Night at the Museum. 

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?  
            Can Zoltan save his witch from being hunted by an evil werewolf with Sophia's help. 

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

            This book is published with a small press and is now avail. as an ebook. 

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

            About 3 months. 

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

         I haven't read too many other books, but I have read Karen Michelle Nutt's paranormals and I loved them.  I love Karen's writing. 

Who or What inspired you to write this book?  

           The inspiration was to tell Zoltan's story. 

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

There's a lot of action, adventure, and secrets that spill out as Zoltan works to keep his witch safe. There's never a dull moment.
