MY NEXT BIG THING by Vonnie Davis

Welcome and special thanks to Stacy Dawn, for tagging me to contribute to "The Next Big Thing"....a little trip around the blogesfere to see what we're all up to. I love it! Plus I get to share news of my next release.

Now, what's the Next Big Thing for me? A young woman battling her weight and trying to outrun a video of her undressing that’s gone viral. In dashing from her past, she darts into her future…

Ten Interview Questions for The Next Big Thing:
What is the working title of your book?

Where did the idea come from for the book?

I read a blog titled “Love Darts and Escargot” and I instantly got a visual of a guy in a bar, getting struck in the neck with a dart—a love dart, of course.

What genre does your book fall under?
Contemporary Romance

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

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
When a grown woman comes face-to-face with her teenage fantasy, secrets are revealed and passions unleashed.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
This is a novella. My agent only handles my full-length books. It’s contracted with The Wild Rose Press.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Two months or so.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Now, that’s a hard question to answer since every writer likes to think her stories are unique.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
This story also deals heavily with cyber-bullying and bullies in school. My hero has a teenage daughter who is a victim of this social ill.
While shooting pool at the Lonesome Steer Honky Tonk, rancher Tyler Desmond takes an errant dart in the neck. Ready to retaliate, he’s instead captivated by the blonde who threw it. Tyler isn’t interested in opening his heart, so why does he kiss the verbal buzz saw? Just to shut her up?
As a teenager, Lacy LaRoche had a secret crush on Tyler. When the dart brings them face-to-face, all she can do is chatter—until he kisses her. But Lacy didn’t come back to Texas to fall in love. She’s hiding another secret: her roommate surreptitiously videotaped Lacy undressing and posted it on the internet.
When Tyler’s daughter is bullied at school, Lacy must reveal the truth and face the emotional damage of cyberbullying. Over-protective of his daughter—and his heart—Tyler must learn to trust again. Can two scarred hearts find their way back to where they belong?
