The Next Big Thing!

Good morning, peeps!

How is everyone enjoying GUTGAA so far? I had heaps of fun yesterday and met some amazing bloggers - welcome to those who have followed me! I am still not done visiting everyone, and it's going to take me a while to reply to all the comments here, but I am getting through it bit by bit. :D

Today I was tagged by Cassie Mae in the Next Big Thing meme! It is an honour indeed, especially when it was someone as awesome as Cassie handing out the prize!

What is the working title of your book?

Haha, well, I have a lot going on at the moment, but I'm going to talk about the second book in the Game On Series, because I haven't said too much about it yet! The working title is very imaginative - it's currently "Jesse." :p

Where did the idea come from?

Mainly it came from the readers of Game On falling in love with Jesse Shaw LOL! I wanted to write something a little less intense than the first book, with a higher level of soppy, teenage romance! I think I failed at the first half and succeeded at the second!

What genre does your book fall under?

NA Contemporary Romance

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

I literally have every person cast, but I will just share the two main ones with you! And because we aren't supposed to post photos, I will have to link to Chad Michael Murray as Jesse Shaw, and Jessica Amlee as Isabelle Mills. 

What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?

After a successful first season in L.A, Jesse Shaw heads to London with his best buddy, but his world is turned upside down when a dangerous prank threatens his career and his blossoming relationshio with Brit chick Isabelle Mills. 

(Or something like that LOL! Writing a one sentence synopsis is hard!)

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

Self published :)

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

Around six or seven weeks.

Who or what inspired you to write this book?

As above, fans of Jesse from Game On! :D

What else about your book would pique the reader's interest?

Erm ... I think that it's a dual POV, and one of the POVs comes from a whole new character, who will feature in later books in the series. Also, there are some quirky side characters, and an appearance from Radleigh McCoy!

And I will tag:

Clare Dugmore
Laura (Stranger Than Writing)

That's all for today! :D


  1. You know I love Jesse (and his story) with all my heart. I'm so excited/ honored to be one of the first people reading this. I think you've got something really magical here! :D

  2. Sounds like a great story! I love that you picture Chad Michael Murray as Jesse. That makes me want to read the book even more! ;)

  3. Ooo, this sounds so good! Thanks so much for sharing my dear!

  4. Damn it, I can't wait to get some money in my paypal account so I can buy a copy. But I'm in love with the sample I read on my kindle. Can't wait to read about Jesse in your next masterpiece. NA rocks!

  5. I love dual POV book. And Jesse was a great character. I'm glad to know he's getting a book of his own.

  6. My titles are just as creative right now! I have one that involves faeries and it's guessed it, "Faeries". Hopefully soon I can make it a little more dazzling.

  7. Six or seven weeks? I am so slow...
    Always listen to the fans!

  8. Hey,

    Wow, you are *FAST* :)

    Good luck with number two, sounds like you are having fun, which means the fans will, too :)

  9. I am so envious of your six/seven weeks to write the first draft. It's taken me that long to write the first paragraph of my WIP.

  10. Sounds like you're on a roll, Kyra well done.

  11. Sounds great, Kyra! GAME ON is still on my to-read list. Man, I need to get to reading, so I can get to it sooner rather than later. :)

  12. Fun, fun, fun, Kyra! I love reading Q & A's about you! ;)

  13. Love your answers. Your one sentence synopsis is great, nice work.

  14. Love your answers here, Kyra, and I still have to read GAME ON!

  15. Sounds awesome, I will definitely be excited to read this :)
    Thanks for tagging me, you're so sweet. Will try and play along soon!
    Loving the sites new look to!

  16. I love that it's about Jesse, how awesome!

    Thank you for tagging me, will try and play soon yay! :)

IWSG: Performance anxiety

Welcome to the August edition of IWSG, hosted by the amazing Alex J.Cavanaugh ! So, as most of you know by now - because I haven't shut up about it LOL - my first novel, Game On, has been released. The blog tour officially starts next week (YAY!) but I find myself becoming increasingly nervous. A blog tour not only highlights my book, but me. What if people don't like me? What if my guest posts suck, and everyone thinks I'm boring? If I can't engage people in 300 words on a blog, they probably aren't going to pick up my book. And then there's the "what happens next" question. I plan to make Game On into a series, which feels a bit arrogant of me. I don't know how many people are going to like the first book, should I really be planning to keep the series going? So far, Game On has actually been incredibly well received. I've had great reviews, so maybe I shouldn't worry about people not liking it, but what if Book Two isn't as goo

IWSG: Books Sales

IWSG time! I'd like to start by thanking Alex J. Cavanaugh for this fab bloghop, and today in particular, it is just the motivation I need to get me blogging again! Today, I'm talking book sales. Now, I don't really know if there is any kind of "average" amount of books sales when you're an indie author. I don't know what is considered a good amount of book sales per month, or whether I am doing better or worse than others. What I do know, is that I am happy with the amount of books I've sold. I self-published because I want people to read my work - and people are reading it - yay! My concern is - what if the sales stop? I know after a time, everyone's book sales will slow down, but I have this fear that I'll check my sales every couple of weeks to find that nobody cares about reading my books anymore.The dreaded 0 will show on my Kindle sales, and I will plummet into a pit of despair. It hasn't happened yet, but Game On has onl

First Fight/First Kiss Blogfest

Yay, it's blogfest time! Many thanks to Danielle and Jackie for hosting! Here are the details: Share your 1 st FIGHT and 1 st KISS scenes in your MS’s or WIP’s. Crack open your current project or dive back into an old one. We want to feel what your characters feel. From the sting of their first fist-to-the-face to the tingling taste of their first kiss. Today is First Fight day, and I wanted to bring you a small excerpt from my NaNo novel which centres around Jesse Shaw, one of the characters from Game On. It's a bit rough, and a bit vague - mainly because I wrote it quickly, Jesse's voice still needs work, and this fight in full would be packed with spoilers, but hopefully it gives enough info to make sense!   Just to clear up a small thing - Georgia is Isabelle's twin sister. :)   ** “Izzy,” I said. “You know the right thing to do.” Isabelle looked down at me with those big brown eyes, and my insides twisted with guilt. Right away, I realised
