Meme borrowed from Charlie Cochrane
Charlie’s answers are over here.
What is the title of the book you’re currently working on?
The Glass Floor (temporary title as the actual glass floor got left behind in an older idea for the plot.)
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I have absolutely no idea. You can’t expect me to remember stuff like that.
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Frank – Alex Pettyfer, Radu – Julian McMahon, Zayd – Burak Özçivit, Mirela – Neha Sharma, Ecaterina – Alexis Raben
What is a one-sentence synopsis of the book?
A Romanian lord fights for his country’s freedom from the Ottoman Empire, using an army of vampires.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
It’ll be represented by the L.Perkins Agency (providing my agent doesn’t wash her hands of it because she told me vampires were a bad idea and I went and wrote them anyway.)
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
I haven’t finished it yet.
What other books would you compare this story to in your genre?
I… wouldn’t. Maybe Barbara Hambley’s first ‘Travelling with the Dead’ book, but not really. Of course I would compare it to Dracula, though. That’s inevitable since both feature Wallachian noblemen with vampiric associations.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Julian McMahon – saw him in the Fantastic Four films and thought that, while he made a terrible DOOM, he might make quite a good sinister hero of some other sort.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Atlantis. The vril accumulator. A total lack of flying carpets. All the best parties include tortoises.
