The Next Big Thing!

November 29  |  eBooks, News  |   Kay Jaybee

Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog today, which is giving itself over to the Blog Hop- The Next Best Thing!

The incredible erotica writing machine that is Janine Ashbless invited me to answer a handful of questions about my work in progress. These same questions will then get passed on to more writers (see below)- thus there is a host of information awaiting you on a wide variety of blog sites! What better way to meet new authors, or see what your favourite authors are cooking up next?

Let’s get started!!

What is the working title of your book?

Digging Deep

Where did the idea come from for the book?

When I was a fresh faced 19 year old student, I studied archaeology. I had so much fun! One of the digs I worked on was in Tunisia. Here we (students from my UK university, and another university from the US), excavated an Ancient Roman City called Lepti Minus, and field walked the olive groves that surrounded it.

Simply saying we had a lot of ‘experiences’ doesn’t do those months under the extreme heat of the day, and the extreme cold of night, justice! I haven’t included all my adventures in Digging Deep– but there are a few ‘real’ situations in there! The rest will pop up in another story very soon!

The Olive Groves of Lepti Minus

What genre does your book fall under?

Erotic romance.

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

Oh that’s hard! I think the lead, Dr Beth Andrews, would work well under the charms of the stunning Zoe Tapper.

While the equally delicious Sam Worthington, of Avator fame, would make a wonderful Dr Harrison Harris.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Dr Beth Andrew’s first foreign excavation as a site leader, which she co-run’s with the American archaeologist Dr Harrison Harris, gets off to a shaky start due to the jealous interference of Harrison’s ex, and an over zealous student… Love and lust really can cloud even the cleverest persons judgement!

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

Assuming they like it, Digging Deep will form part of the Xcite Secret Library range

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

A month.

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

Digging Deep is in the same vein as my previous Secret Library erotic romance, A Sticky Situation.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

As I said above, this new novella was inspired by my trip to North Africa – The entire excavation period was jam packed with unbelievable experiences just waiting to be used in stories!

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

As half the archaeologists on the dig I describe in the novella are British, and half are American, there is some interesting word play between the two cultures- all good natured of course! It might make you smile. (Well, I hope it does).

      The real dig- in the very place described in the book- was really amazing. I was very lucky to go there. Had many many adventures- including being the subject of a kidnap attempt! Sadly I saw no erotic action!!

  3. Congrats! Of course they did! They’d be daft not to!
