Emma Mills – “Next Big Thing” Interview

So a couple of weeks ago my lovely friend and fellow writer Aurelia B Rowl tagged me for this blog hop which I believe was started by Litbridge consisting of an ever-growing chain of writer interviews spanning the globe! Cool huh? Anyway me being ditsy old me… I completely forgot I’d been tagged until yesterday when another writer friend of mine from America, Christiana Miller also tagged me! So a big hello and thank you to both Aurelia B Rowl who writes modern romance novels and the lovely Christiana who has written one of my favourite books Somebody Tell Aunt Tillie She’s Dead!

How it works is that I post my interview and then I tag five more writers… although this may be tricky as everyone I know seems to have done it already!

TNBT: What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?

WitchLove is the third book in the WitchBlood YA series following 18 year old Jess, a half witch / half vampire as she fights evil and finds love.

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

I’m not really sure… my warped imagination maybe? Once I began writing WitchBlood the characters just grew and plot lines developed organically.

TNBT: What genre does your book fall under?

YA (Young Adult). Paranormal. Fantasy… maybe New Adult as there is some romance. Age 14+

TNBT: What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie?

I have a whole post on this coming up soon on my latest blog tour but to make it quick : Emma Watson would play Jess, Dean Geyer would play Daniel, Mila Kunis would make a great Eva and maybe Zac Effron would play Luke.

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

With WitchBlood it took me about 10 months, but I wrote WitchLove during NaNoWriMo so completed the final 3/4 of the book in 30days!

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

I’d say my amazing fans who reply to my posts on my Facebook page, write me amazing reviews and are constantly asking when the next book will be written. They keep me writing!

TNBT: What else about your book might pique your readers interest?

I think a lot of my American fans love the fact that my series is based in the UK, and are also entertained by Jess travelling to the US in WitchLove. Equally I think my British fans like the fact that they are reading about British places… especially Northern UK.
