After a week off, I’m back to The List . We are up to 54,000 words. I’m past the stage of hating this WIP and the characters seem to know what they want to do without much help from me. This is a good thing as I haven’t been much help to them this week.
What is the working title of your book?
The working title is Fracture.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
This is a bit complicated. Fracture is a ghost story with a twist. I’ve always wondered what exactly are ghosts? why do some people see them and some don’t? Why is it some people claim to have seen ghosts of the living or that they often appear in different forms? Some are more substantial, some can interact, some are like a movie being played over and over with apparently no awareness of the living world.
I believe in the possibility we live in just one of an infinite number of dimensions. Some are alternate physical worlds where another us is living out a different life, and some spiritual. I also believe when our physical life ends that we pass over into one of the spiritual worlds. When people see a ghost or feel a presence, it’s the thinning of the veil separating these worlds. Some people are more sensitive to it than others.
It’s these questions and beliefs that formed the basis for the idea that later became Fracture.
What genre does your book fall under?
Fracture is paranormal romance YA.
This week’s question: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
This is a tough one. Basically, because I know that authors generally have little to no input on casting, I try very hard not to imagine specific actors in roles. If I absolutely had to choose, I would probably put Alexander Ludwig as the male lead. After seeing him in the hunger games, I think he could pull off the attitude. Mia Wasikowska with short, cropped hair as the female lead. She has a certain relaxed strength about her.
