THE NEXT BEST THING~

I was recently invited to participate in The Next Big Thing, you may have seen it hopping about on the net or twitter. It's a blog hop of sorts...I will post my post which consists of 10 questions about my current WIP 
I was tagged by Gayl Taylor for this exercise, and unfortunately, the people I wanted to tag have already been tagged, lol! I will pick a couple and it is up to them if they wish to participate! Jessica E. Subject, JoAnne Kenrick and Layna Pimentel. All you guys have to do is use the 10 questions below and tag a few people of your choice~Apologies if you have already done this, just ignore~
Regardless, here is the answers to the 10 questions about my Current WIP~
  What is the working title of your book?
The Copper and the Madam

Where did the idea come from for the book?
I wrote a short story for Decadent Publishing's The Edge Line called THE BLIND CUPID (coming in December), a historical, and I wrote a prequel, now in submissions. The idea came to me while watching BBC America's Copper, what if I made the hero a detective with Scotland Yard? Of course, forgive me, he's Irish. (lol) His name is Rory Kerrigan. The heroine is the madam of the brothel, The Blind Cupid.
What genre does your book fall under?
It takes place in London in the late 1890's, so Historical/Suspense/Rubenesque/Erotic  also has a little voyeurism in it, not sure what genre that is~

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie?
Easy. Look above, lead actor in Copper, Tom Weston-Jones, he was the muse for Rory.  Hands down. For Rea the heroine, she is plump, so that is hard, as most actresses are stick-thin.  However if Naomi Watts was willing to pack on a few pounds, she would be perfect!

What is a one sentence synopsis of your book? 
Dangerously sexy London copper tangles with the owner of a brothel, can they overlook their pasts and look to the future?

Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?
I am almost done, and eventually will be subbing to Decadent.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I write at a leisurely pace, I don't impose words counts on myself. I am lucky I no longer have to work, so most of my afternoons are spent writing. I'd say about three weeks.

.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre.
I have no idea, I do not read romance suspense as a rule so this story was a challenge and I have none to compare it to. I know there are books out there with a historical detective, I just haven't read them. Eep!

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I love historical romances and anything to do with history. So every historical romance author I have ever read. And my teacher hubby for stoking my love of history. *cough*

What else about your book might interest the reader?
I mention actual events and locations, that was a lot of fun. Even Jack the Ripper gets a shout-out!
