3 Through the 21st Century: the Blog Hop

Today I’m taking a moment to participate in a “blog hop” – A colleague gets interviewed on a blog and links to this page. This gives me, dear reader, practice for my interview with Terry Gross (are you listening, Terry?)

What is the working title of your book? 
            3 Through History: Love in the Time of Republicans
Where did the idea come from for the book? 
            I lived through a real love triangle like this once. I was aching to tell the story and get the   late boomer/Gen X history  in!
What genre does your book fall under?
            I call it a historical romance, knowing that the term “historical” usually means fifty years or longer ago.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
            Rafi has to be Jeremy Irons, and Dimitri I see as Sacha Baron Cohen. Anna (who is in the process of being renamed Frida) gets
            Salma Hayek.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
            Two late teens meet, drift, meet again, and both meet the girl of their dreams – but it’s the same girl!
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
            Agency. I can’t sell firewood to Eskimos.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
            OY! Two years. If it weren’t for my writers’ groups, I never would have done it.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
           Good question. I don’t know of any book like this one. I know historical novels, and love triangles, but not both.
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
           Like I said before, I had to suffer through the wrong vertex of a love triangle once.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
           The characters are really deeply thought out, and there are at least four hot love scenes!
