Mirabella’s Mardi Gras Ménage -- Next Big Thing

The lovely and talented Tara Lain tagged me in the fun Next Big Thing hop that’s happening. Here’s a sneak peak at my WIP (Work in Progress), and then I’ll refer you to four author-friends, who’ll post next Wednesday about their projects.

What is the working title of your book?

Mirabella’s Mardi Gras Ménage will be published in February 2013.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

As I was finishing up book 3 of The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: A Threesome Wedding Adventure, I thought book 4 The Wolfe Pack would be the end of the series. That’s when Mirabella, who is the niece of the Voodoo Queen raised her hand and demanded she find her love. Yes, ma’am.

What genre does your book fall under?

Erotic paranormal, and as the title implies, it’s a ménage. This story, though, is M/F/F

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?

Marguerite would be played by a redheaded Scarlett Johansson, and Mirabella is more exotic, such as Zoe Saldana or Megan Good. While Mirabella’s been protected most of her life, it’s time for her to break out. As for the male character, maybe someone like Jesse Williams, but I’m not going to share too much there.
An actress like Zoe Saldana would be good for Mirabella.
What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?

When Mirabella escapes from under the watchful eye of her aunt, the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans, she discovers a new world of mystery and ménage.

Will your book be self published or represented by a publisher?

The book will be published by Ravenous Romance.

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

I’m still working on it, but hope to be complete by the end of November.

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

I’ve noticed that people who read my books also like Carrie Ann Ryan’s Redwood Pack series, and the Vampire Werewolf Menage by Talyn Scott.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

The characters themselves inspired the book. Sometimes I feel like I’m the conduit for their stories.

What else about your book might interest the reader?

I’ve given the nod to four other worthy authors, who’ll be posting their responses, next Wed. Nov. 28. Check out their Next Big Things.

Thanks so much for visiting.

  1. Don't you love it when characters step up and yell "It's my time! Tell my story." You have no recourse but to comply. Love the story idea. ; )

  2. Thank you for visiting my friends. Yes, sometimes those characters can be quite loud. For being a "secondary" throughout the series, Mirabella spoke up when it was time!

  3. I'm excited to get my hands on this one. Love Jesse Williams.
