The Speed of Darkness was the title of a short novel I wrote a couple of years ago. I just have fun with how I can make things happen in this story and on a whim worked out some notes that could let me expand it into a 5-6 book series. At the moment I have a very early draft of what would make sense as the prequel to what I have already written. (I've taken down the original with plans to fix what others have complained about it along with just about doubling the its story to serve as my third book.)
I mainly took it down so I could fix one line I wrote about my character Bart Meyers who will play a major part in the second book. But we can worry about that later- here I'm talking about book one:
Go check out the fun work of the blogger who added me to this chain:
1) What is the working title of your book?
'The Illumination Query'
2) Where did the idea come from for your book?
When I wrote 'The Speed of Darkness' a couple of years ago, I wrote one scene where my fun mad scientist character (who I'm told acts a good deal like me) told a bit about what happened to him in the past, and I couldn't stop just expanding the story in my mind. Eventually I decided that I needed to work that story into a book as well.
3) What genre does your book fall under?
Would you call a book with lab testing on were-wolves fantasy or sci-fi?
4) Which actors would you choose to play in your movie rendition?
Ever since I saw 'Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog' I can't keep myself from casting Neil Patrick Harris as my Dr. Nigel Hunter.
5) What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
If they don't even blink an eye when Dr. Hunter suggests experimenting on himself, what exactly are the Eclipse Co. workers willing to do normally?
6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I am interested in finding an agency because I don't really have the inclination to advertize when I could be tinkering on a new story.
7) How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I'm still working on it and it's currently on the back burner as I finish editing my other book, Panoptemitry.
8) What other books would you compare this story to?
I wrote it as something different, can't really think of what it's like.
9) Who or what inspired you to write the book?
I just kind of enjoy writing, I think I started on it because the story would be fun to make.
10) What else about your book might pique the readers interest?
I've had a couple of people comment on my 'Speed of Darkness' book about how my werewolves aren't quite exactly like any they've seen elsewhere.
