Authors Tagging Authors - The Next Big Thing

I got tagged by PK. I'm not thinking about a book (yet), but I am working on story number 2. It's harder than the first one, for some reason, but I'll get there.

 Here are the rules:

 • Give credit to the person/blog that tagged you

• Post the rules for this hop

• Answer these ten questions about your current WIP (Work In Progress) on your blog

• Tag five other writers/bloggers and add their links so we can hop over and meet them.

1. What is the working title of your book?

Hmm, if I ever get around to it, the working title would probably be "Susan's New Life". 

2. What genre does the book fall under?

Romance, BDSM, middle aged people having sex and enjoying it.

3. Which actors would you choose to play your characters for the movie rendition?

A Sean Connery for Jason.  Who would mind getting spanked by the likes of him?

Susan actually looks a lot like me. So where do I find a picture of a middle aged, dark haired, slightly overweight woman that is not me? But Sylvia Kristel would do, hadn't she died earlier this year.

4. What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

A mature woman's journey into BDSM.

5. Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

Self-published, probably, but I haven't decided yet. And how could I, when I've not even started writing it?

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

Still working on it.

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

I have no idea about books within my genre: I haven't read anything but short stories yet, and those were all on-line.

8. Who or what inspired you to write this book?

It's all PK's fault. When reading Fantasy Friday stories I decided to try my hand at writing as well. So I wrote "Susan's Debut", sent it to her and she put it up. So now, after encouragement from her and her readers, I'm struggling with story number 2.

9. What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

It's about people: love, attraction, insecurity, passion, pleasure, fear, trust.

Question #10 Tag, you’re it!

They're not all fiction writers, but I love the writing on their blogs. I would love to tag Cassie, but PK already answered the questions, so let's not do that.

Claire (1950's Wife)
Heather (Discipline & Dreams)
Lillie (At Ian & Lillie's Place)
abby (Finallly Finding Me)
Bas (New Life in DD)


  1. What????????
    Tagging me !
    I'm not an author. I'm supposed to be immune for these things.
    Got to be kidding me!
    OK,OK, cannot refuse a beautiful lady anything.

    1. Tough! Tag, you're it!
      And how do you know I'm beautiful? Have we met?

    2. Hi Julia,
      Now, as the nice guy I am, I accepted the tag and wrote the post.

      And how did I know you are beautiful? Easy: all women are beautiful.
      The few exceptions (like women with a lot of botox in their face) are free to respond and say: "No, Bas, I'm one of those few exceptions, I'm really ugly".
      I'll respect that.
      Doesn't make any difference though.
      Cannot refuse an ugly woman anything either.

    3. BTW, telling that you look like Sylvia Kristel did help too.

    4. Ah, Silvia, I knew you would remember her! Come to think of it, I don't think I ever saw an Emmanuelle movie, but I did read one of the books. Quite silly, actually, but there you go, there is nudity and sex so it must be put on the screen.
      You must be one of the kindest men I've never met, Bas, and I enjoy your compliments.

      Hugs, Julia

  2. Good post Julia. All the best as you write story #2! Take care.

    1. It's getting there, but it's slow going. Someday, soonish, it'll be done.

  3. I'm late as usual these days, I'm waiting anxiously to read your next story! Thanks for doing this.
