I’ve been tagged for The Next Big Thing

The Next Big Thing: News Worthy


(The cover is still a work in progress.)

Thank You for tagging me in an innovative writer meme where we each post ten answers about a work in progress.

1. What is the working title of your book?
News Worthy

2. Where did the idea come for the book?
I am the type of person who cannot stand watching the news, it’s too depressing for my spirit. Unfortunately the news has found a way to enter my life recently, so I decided to kick it up a notch and write about the blurbs I’ve been hearing on TV. So far I have 3 short stories and I am writing my fourth right now.

3. What genre does your book fall under?

4. Which characters would you choose to play your characters in the movie version?
Hmmm…They would have to be more “real people” characters, not already know movie stars. Remember News Worthy is based on every day people that are presented with the opportunity to be on the news,whether that be a good or bad thing.

5. What is the one sentence synposis of your book?
It’s not one sentence, but here it is:

I couldn’t help but write News Worthy. I rarely watch the news, but I have felt surrounded by it lately and caught many strange clips on the same day. I put those daily clips together to make some short stories. This makes the news a little more imaginative and interesting for me. Enjoy.

6. Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?
Self Published. My books don’t fit into the publishers “popular Genre” at this time.

7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
The short stories have flowed from me, so I could be still writing my first draft? Though I have read, re-read, and added to the first 3 stories.

8. What other books would you compare this story with in your genre?
None. News Worthy is a different writing style for me and actually started out as an exercises to tighten up my writing.

9. What or who inspired you to write this book?
The News. Most of their stories are about death, drugs, politics and things that are depressing. A lot of times you don’t get the whole story about the people who have made the news. I decided to spice the news up by combining the clips I catch.

10. What else about your book might pique a reader’s interest?
The stories give a different outlook on the news and maybe the way people watch it.

Now I get to tag five other writers so you check out their work and hopefully they’ll post about their new projects as well.

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
