Blog Tour


Hi,
If this is your first time on my blog, let me introduce myself. I'm Kay LaLone author of a great middle grade novel Ghostly Clues. You can find it at www.museituppublishing.com and www.amazon.com.
If you want to know more about me, you can visit my website at www.kaylalone.weebly.com

Join me and five other authors on a blog tour to see what we are up to. I'm sure you will find us all busy working on our next work in progress. Below I have answered ten questions about my work in progress. After the questions you will see the other authors involved in this blog tour. Visit their blogs and see what they are working on.

1: What is the working title of your book?

 

Mysterious Visions

 

2: Where did the idea come from for the book?

 

The idea came from a dream I had.

 

3: What genre does your book come under?

 

YA paranormal

 

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

 

This is always a hard question to answer. I’m not sure what actors would play these characters in Mysterious Visions. I never really thought about it.

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

 

A terrible vision of Nicole’s parents’ fatal car accident reveals her secret, and sends her on a terrifying adventure of pirate ghosts, betrayal, forgiveness, and finding true love.

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?

 
A publisher.

7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

 

Maybe a few months to write the first draft, but the revisions are taking a long time because the story has changed so much from the first draft.

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

I have read a lot of pschic books where a teen has visions, and they are all different. If I have to compare this story to other books, I would have to say The Seer series by Linda Joy Singleton.
 

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

 

A dream I had one night while camping inspired the story.

 

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

 

This book is about a young girl that is trying to cope with the tragic loss of her parents. She’s doing good at keeping her secret and trying to live a normal life with her grandparents on Mystic Cavern Island. But then she has this terrible vision of her parents’ car accident that reveals her secret. Now she has to deal with people thinking she’s a freak and figuring out who caused the vision and why. This path leads her on an adventure where she is faced with seeing pirate ghosts, figuring out what is in the caves that scared her mother, and dealing with the betrayal of someone she thought she loved. Hopefully by the end of the story she will find true love with someone that shares her past or maybe she’ll chose the one who betrayed her.

 Now below is a list of five authors who have joined me in this blog tour. Be sure to stop by their blogs and see what their next work in progress is.
