During the A to Z challenge last month, I received some fun awards. I am finally getting around to thanking the bestowers and passing them on... (This post got to be too long so I only got half of the awards done and will continue the award ceremony in another post. Good grief, there were a lot of questions!)
But first, let me pause. It's Memorial Day. Please remember that freedom is not free. Many have sacrificed for us to have what we have. Thank you, Military!
=====================================And now, on with the show!
Eww was my reaction to this first award from Mark and Heather - the Zombie Rabbit... It's cool and hip, but Eww! Thanks, guys!
For this award, we are supposed to list our top ten blogs from the A to Z challenge (or now that it's over, I'm resurrecting the award and pronouncing that you can promote any ten or so favorites!)
I met some great new bloggers during A to Z and this is the perfect time to highlight those I clicked with most (and was able to find again, some disappeared or didn't link back to their blogs...)
(and these last two are long time friends that had great themes, hard to pick just 2!)
The Next Big Thing was passed on to me by Brinda. Thanks, lady! I am going to answer questions about my next big WIP!
- what is the working title? SIMULATION
- where did the idea come from? An offshoot of POP TRAVEL
- what genre is it? techno thriller
- what actors would you pick for a movie rendition? I think I'm changing from Leonardo DiCaprio to Chris Hemsworth...
- what's a one sentence synopsis? Cooper must stop an infamous, crazed campaign manager and his clone android candidate from taking over with their army of droids.
- how long did it take to write the first draft? TBD, outline is done, hopefully will write first draft during camp nano...
- will it be self-published or represented? hoping Curiosity Quills will keep me going!
- what other books would you compare it to in your genre? I don't compare in quality, but in genre, with I, Robot and in this case, the movie Trading Places
