The Next Big Thing – Authors Tagging Authors!
I am thrilled to take part in The Next Big Thing: Authors Tagging Authors! I was tagged by the fantastic Caron Rider and I’m excited to keep this going! So now I have to answer the questions below, tag a new set of 5 authors, then they answer, tag authors, etc. I’m answering questions about my Urban Fantasy novel, The Emerald Dragon, coming soon!
What is the working title of your book?
The Emerald Dragon, Book One of the Dragomeir Series
Where did the idea come from for the book?
It came from an incredibly vivid dream that I had. I thought that it was time for not only books about dragons, but to explain that dragons are actually smarter than we are and interact at the human level.
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Main character – Tanis: Viggo Mortenson
Queen Mother : Morena Baccarin
Demi – human form: Dakota Fanning
Basiliskos – human form: Ving Rhames
Invectum – human form: Chris Hemsworth
Dragons – in dragon form: Themselves
And for the authors I have tagged:
Eden Baylee, Author of Spring Into Summer
Kay Glass, Author of Just One Bite
Michelle Muto, Author of Don’t Fear the Reaper
Alex Laybourne, Author of Highway To Hell
J.A. Schneider, Author of Embryo
Many thanks to my friend and fellow Indie Author Caron Rider for tagging me! I hope you’ll keep it going…there are so many talented authors out there!

Tanis and Demi contacted me with what I thought was a joke. Okay, so I’m not laughing now, but anyway…several people at Mt. Drago have recently gotten sick, and I mean really sick. Turns out it’s the peanut butter. Not every brand, and there are some that don’t have Salmonella. Yeah, you heard me. Nearly all of the food that gets eaten by the people at the mountain comes from the outside world. From the same manufacturers as the ones you buy for your family. This is a wake-up call to all of our friends and their friends. Contact your local food stores and inquire. Get on-line and do some research. I’m going to give as much information as I’ve found, but I need you guys to spread the word. Little kids aren’t supposed to die from peanut butter.
The manufacturer that seems to have the highest number of recalls is Sunland, but it doesn’t stop there, oh no not by a long shot. Okay, let’s take this one step at a time. The first thing you need is a web address to prove to yourself the severity of which I speak.
The above address will show you the number of products that have been recalled and a lot of other pertinent information. This is not restricted to just Sunland, it has become more widespread with multiple companies such as: Justin’s and General Mills among others. Please check your recently purchased food to make sure you don’t have one of the recalled items. Thank you for listening to Tanis, Demi, and of course…me.
