What is the title of your book?
“Mused” is a 10,000-word novelette.
How did you come by the idea?
I wanted to expand upon the concept I had explored in my novel, Finding Poe, only switching to the author’s point of view.
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters if it were a movie?
I would prefer a cast of talented no-names, which I think would be fitting for a story written by a relatively unknown author.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
A writer gets more than she bargains for when she borrows the muses of well-known authors.
Will your book be self-published or traditional?
I currently have the story under consideration by a traditional publisher.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It took me roughly a month and a half to finish the first draft, slow by my standards, but forgivable given recent health issues.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I can’t think of any books that have tapped into this particular theme. The story is, as far as I know, unique.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
The muses inspired me; I wrote this story for and about them.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Readers who enjoyed Finding Poe will not only derive similar pleasure in reading this story, but they might find that it also sheds more light on the mystery behind the main character’s enigmatic identity.
