The gift is part of an ongoing contest by the Independent Author Network and all books preloaded into the Kindle are by IAN authors. How cool is that?
But before you rush off to grab the prize, let me quickly share with you five awesome-sauce authors you must read.
First, Frederick Lee Brooke. He tagged me as the Next Big Thing and you can read his work here. His blogs which covers anything from reviews to tips for writers can be found here.
Second, Aliefka Bijlsma. She's the brainchild behind the smoking hot book, The Consul General's Wife which you can read here.
Thirdly, Kate Campbell. Journalist, photographer and novelist, her latest release Adrift in The Sound is a must-read and you can read it here.
Then there's the Laura Lee. Her way with words will leave a lasting impression and her latest release, Angel offers readers emotional insight and you can read it here.
Last but not least, there's Guy Magar. Remember, your childhood favourites like A-Team and Blue Thunder. He directed episodes from the series. And he even almost decapitated Drew Barrymore. You can read all those inside Hollywood stories, here.
Now, if you'll indulge me a wee bit more, here are some quick answers about my upcoming piece.
What is your working title of your book? My Mother Sang, The Devil Danced.
Where did the idea come from for the book? Waiting in a hospital for my shunt check-up. I know, depressing but as I observed the different types of relationship around me, the story developed in my head.
What genre does your book fall under? Women's Fiction.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Gemma, the lead character would be played by Anne Hathaway. Her father Ray, will be played by Liam Neeson and Russell, his brother will be played Adam Levine. (I know he's not an actor, but the tattoo covered body is based a lot on him). Gemma's mother, Katie, is still changing in my head but I would probably go with Heather Locklear.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? About three months but the editing is taking at least ten times longer between my second guessing and repeated changes. I'll get there, I promise.
