The Next Big Thing ~ Week 19

The Next Big Thing is a concept brought to life by SheWrites that allows authors the opportunity to discuss their next book, whether it’s being published or not. When the wonderful writer, Natasha Head presented the idea, it seemed like serendipity as this gives me a way to introduce a project of mine that will be released soon. Below you will find the set questions I have answered in the style of an interview, which will hopefully make interesting reading.

Many thanks and gratitude to Natasha for tagging me in her post. You can read her interview here

What is the title of your book?


What genre does it fall under?

Poetry :)) (what else)

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

Maggie Smith, Orlando Bloom, Judy Dench, Kiera Knightley, Susan Hampshire, Hugh Grant

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

If you could walk wherever you wanted, where would that be?

Will your book be self-pub or represented by an agency?

The book will be published by Aquillrelle.

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

The first draft has been written over eighteen months.

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

It’s poetry – I would like to leave that to the reader to decide 🙂

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

I write poetry to look at life more closely – I have a penchant for lifting stones and seeing what lies beneath.

Thank you for reading this, and I hope it has made you a just little bit curious about my anthology.

And in honor of supporting The Next Big Thing and my fellow authors, here’s three awesome writers that have projects they would like to share with you too… do visit as they speak of their Next Big Thing!

  1. Ditto what Peter and Louise said! You’ve come across very well in this ‘interview’, Marsha, I like what you say about the book. Honest, straight up and sort of WYSIWYG 😀

      • Oh, tell me about it, Marsha. I am cracking on with editing ours now, but it has proved a labour of love for some time, and, for me, has been an illuminating experience. I do think I’m making progress now. Anyway, well done and looking forward to reading “Spinning”.

  2. Having been blessed with a sneak peek, I’d say some of these could be turned into fantastic short films. 🙂 I do think that this poem collection will be the next VERY BIG thing!
    Thanks for tagging my blog! Will have to think up some answers…
