The Next Big Thing


Thanks to author Martin Crosbie for asking me to participate (http://martincrosbie.com/) in "The Next Big Thing" blog tour.

Ten Interview Questions for The Next Big Thing:

What is the working title of your book? -- What A Meth: Book 4 in the Gotcha Detective Agency Mysteries.

Where did the idea come from for the book? -- I like to pick a character that I want to kill off, and what kind of death would be best for the character. The next thing is the title. I love to play with words, so What a Meth seems appropriate, since a meth lab in a home blows up in this novel

What genre does your book fall under? -- Mystery Series

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? I try not to think of actors in the roles for my characters, because I see them as real people. Everyone in my novels looks like someone I've met in my life, though the description doesn't necessarily match up with the original personality. I could contemplate for hours and not be able to come up with the actors I'd like to see in the roles.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? -- Gotcha Detective Agency owner Mimi Capurro gets sucked into a scheme by a couple of meth head dope dealers and is determined to uncover what really happened.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? -- Published by LBB Company.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? -- 2 months (so far), it's not finished yet. Looking at January 2013 for publication.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Sue Grafton or Janet Evanovich

Who or What inspired you to write this book? -- I had a character in mind for the victim, so I just tailored the story to fit the person's lifestyle.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? -- It's an interesting take on meth dealers and addicts. Above all, the characters that inhabit the Gotcha Detective Agency are fun and colorful. I've had several people tell me they'd want Charles Parks to decorate their house for Christmas.
