The Next Big Thing

THE NEXT BIG THING is a chain of book and author recommendations. Each author answers some questions about their work, then recommends other authors…


1. What is the working title of your next book?


The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Lost Ones. It’s book three in a series of four books. Books One (The Prophecies) and Two (The Return to Anaedor) have already been published. If they weren’t, I’d be annoyed if I were you.


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


I was living in the city at the time, which was not my favorite place, being that I’m a country girl at heart, but it had this wonderful park full of ravines and streams that totally saved me.

What’s that? I think I hear someone having an anxiety attack.

Developing Your Story Idea

I wish I had a dollar for every time someone has told me that they would like to write a book someday. I’d have at least a $100 by now. My question is: Why wait? Do you have an idea? Do you have an idea, but have no clue where to start?

Personally, I’ve never had too much of a problem coming up with story ideas. My head is filled with them (perhaps overfilled, one might say). Most writers are the same way. We just can’t turn our imaginations off. Maybe that’s why people look at us funny. Our minds are so stuffed with characters and ideas from our fictional worlds, that sometimes these things just start slipping out. On occasion, my husband has to say to me, “Come back, Kristina. Come back!”

Okay. I’m back. So you’ve got lots of ideas. Now what?
