Imogene Nix: The next best thing

Hi everyone.

The lovely Imogene Nix has answered the 10 questions for The next best thing for me.
She is the author of the brilliant series Warriors of the Elector.
Have a read of her responses:

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

2) Where did the idea come from for the book?
It was the natural conclusion to my Warriors of the Elector series.

3) What genre does your book fall under?
Science Fiction romance

4) What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
Jonathon Rhys-Meyers as Chowd and Jessica Alba at Meredith

5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
On the eve of the final battle 2 lovers struggle in a fight for good and true evil.

6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Nope it's released by Secret Cravings Publishing.

7) How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
This took the longest amount of time of any of my books - 6 months of back and forth.

8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Rebels and Lovers from Linnea Sinclair or even Freedom's Challenge by Anne McCaffrey

9) Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Wow... there wasn't any single person or single event that inspired it.  I was about halfway through Starline when I realised the book couldn't tell the whole story and it was meant to be a series.  It was then a matter of working out what happened... not an easy task for someone who doesn't plot :)

10) What else about the book might pique the reader's interest?
The science facts used throughout this series are all factually based.  Maybe the lines are blurred a little, but the basis is actually heavily researched first.
Then you need to round up five of your favourite authors so they can answer those questions next week!
Khloe, Donna Gallagher, Willsin Rowe?  I'm struggling a bit here though.  I guess if you like you could ask Kathrine... I'm not so sure though that should would participate :D
