Emily Kendal Frey tagged me in the interview project, The Next Big Thing.  Here are my answers to the questions regarding my current project.

1. What is the working title of the book?

Journal of Ruin and Repose

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

Hauntings, love in the ruins, the perspicacity of human emotions, the possibility that one needn't get everything one wants in order to be happy, leaving an inner exile to rejoin the world.

3. What genre does the book fall under?

Poetry, prose poetry, lyric essay.

4. What is a one sentence synopsis of your book?

Fortune's wheel as a turning blue mirror.

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

Not sure.  The book is divided into sections and I wrote each individual section fairly quickly, in short bursts, but with breaks in between.

6. Who or what inspired you to write the book?

Certain autobiographical considerations, Stargate and self-help gurus, the necessity to examine the reality of the many manifestations of love.

7. What else about this book might pique a reader's interest.

You can read a poem here.  It's from a section of the book called 'Love in the Ruins.'

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

I hope it will find a publisher.

For next week I am going to tag...

Guhroovalish blog title, girly.
I wanna gonna show you MY thang.

I giveth unto thee,
my just and worthy liege,
a wild, odor-free, exaggerated ride;
yet, intoxicatingly illustrious:

Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
You’re creative, yes?
Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

Whether you obtain moralityB4mortality to wiseabove
or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
An IQ much higher than K2?
An anti-establishment, savvy victory +
avant-guarde-humility =
withe extraordinarily explosion of maelstrom mellowdramatic??
Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
(with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love –
jump into faith…
and you’ll VitSee with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.

Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.
Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

PS “It is impossible that anyone should NOT receive all that they have believed and hoped to obtain; it gives Me great pleasure when they hope great things from Me and I will always give them more than they expect”
-our Lord Jesus to Saint Gertrude

…think about it, girl…
1-outta-1 perishes in 88ish years;
1-outta-1 shall be Divinely Judged;
1-outta-1 goes in either direction then,
depending how WE sinfull mortals
have lived, is where WE go for eternity:
Seventh-Heaven -or- the Abyss o'Misery.
Yes, dear, life’s extremely tough now;
yet, life’s extremely short now:
then, WE have the length and breadth of eternity
to consider where our decisions have placed U.S.
And Satan’s working overtime to steal your indestructible soul.
Don’t let that sly, smooth, sinfull Liar.
I choose Heaven.
