Next Big Thing - A Beautiful Forever by Lilliana Anderson

The Next Big Thing is a great big spider's web of authors linking up and sharing information about their current works in progress or books that they're promoting. I have been tagged by Anthony Wood, you can visit him at Want For Words where he has a wonderful showcase of flash fiction for you to read. 

Here are my answers to the ten interview questions about the book I am currently working on 'A Beautiful Forever'

1) What is the working title of your current/next book?

    A Beautiful Forever, it's the sequel to my current release - A Beautiful Struggle

2) Where did the idea come from?
    Originally it came from one of the ladies that helps me with Beta Reading, I have been joking that perhaps she is actually a muse because all of the authors she works with   tend to end up with series after planning only one book! 
     Then, after the release of A Beautiful Struggle, readers were contacting me to ask what happens next so I bit the bullet and started writing this one while the characters were still alive inside me. 

3) What genre does your book fall under?
    Contemporary Romance/ Drama

4) What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
    My characters are Australian, so I thought I had better stick with Aussie actors. 
For Elliot, the best match is Chris Hemsworth
For Paige, it's a toss up between Isabel Lucas and Phoebe Tonkin - although I think Phoebe might win out - I think she might do more justice with Paige's attitude.
5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
    After ruining the best relationship he had ever had, Elliot finds himself heading to London where he meets the enigmatic Paige, another Aussie, whom he can't seem to stay away from. 

6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

   It will be self-published via Amazon, Createspace and Smashwords. 

7) How long did it take you to write the first draft?

   20 days

8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

   A Beautiful Struggle! lol - I find this question hard for Contemporary Romance because really all of the books follow a very similar formula, the characters and the problems they face may be different but essentially they're about two people over coming their hang ups to find a way to be together. 

9) Who or what inspired you to write this book?

    A lady that helps me beta read and my readers all asked to know Elliot's story. 

10) What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest?

      The female lead, Paige, is a tough woman - she's faced a lot of challenges in her life and come out on top. She's not a 'puddle at your feet' type of girl and she more than holds her own throughout the story. 

To keep this going I will tag

A.V Scott - Author of the High Heels series (In progress)
Dennis Higgins - Author of Katya & Cyrus Time Pilgrims (available on Amazon)
Kristin Mckittrick - Currently working on an adult paranormal romance called Kissing Darkness
Sybil Watters - Currently working on Dixie: Open Roads

If you can spare them a little time, check out their work - I will add a link to their Next Big Thing Post as soon as they have popped their answers up. 

Thanks for reading!
