Ten Interview Questions for the Next Big Thing:
What is your working title of your book?
My current release is titled Steam.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I’ve always been a classic black and white horror movie lover. This story has been rattling around in my head for three years now.
What genre does your book fall under?
That is a fantastic question and one I’ve had some trouble answering! I would say Steampunk/Science Fiction but a love story at its core.
I had to take a small people poll! In my head Viktor was Matthew Grey Gubler, literally the moment I began writing him. Vincent reminded my sister of Nick Zano. As for Charlie I imagined her very close in physical appearance to Emilie de Ravin.
Steam is a love story about one girl mending her broken heart.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Steam is a short story. It took about 5-6 hours.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I have absolutely no idea. Science Fiction is a completely new realm for me.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Anyone who has ever felt as awkward as I have inspired this story, and there are lots of us. I wanted to portray a character that was more vulnerable than any other MC I’ve written. Charlie (MC) has a steam powered, mechanical heart. She has had it since she was a child and she has always resented it. Charlie feels like a stranger in her own skin and having to monitor her emotions because of her mechanized heart is a constant reminder. It made her feel less than human and I think a lot of regular people feel “left out” of life like that. Many people think different=bad, which is rarely true.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
(I think) that everyone likes a love story, but even more so, everyone likes a relatable character. I believe that many people will see their own fears in Charlie. In Steam, Charlie is wary of a happy ending, she’s scared to trust it and so part of her runs and hides.
