Special thanks to author Brenda Janowitz, RECIPE FOR A HAPPY LIFE (St. Martin’s Press July 2013)
for inviting me on a new round of the Next Big Thing Blog Hop. This time I’m promoting a book by my younger alter ego, Lena Brown, (younger because I feel like a teenager when I write teen books!) I’d also like to thank author Ka Hancock for including me in her blog hop:

A blog hop is like a giant game of tag to help readers discover authors who are new to them. For this hop, authors are answering 10 questions about what we’re working on now. This week, I’m it.
I’M GIVING AWAY FIVE ADVANCE COPIES OF THE BOOK TO READERS WHO WOULD BE WILLING TO REVIEW IT, SO LEAVE A COMMENT FOR A CHANCE. :)I was tagged by Brenda Janowitz ( Visit her blog to see who else she tagged. At the end of this post, I’ll tag more authors who will be joining the hop next week. Follow the hop long enough and you’re bound to find books you’ll love!

Here is my Next Big Thing!1: What is the working title of your book? TWIN FALLS, a young adult paranormal novel
2: Where did the idea come from for the book? I’ve been fascinated with two things all of my life: twins and angels, so decided to combine them.
3: What genre does your book come under? contemporary paranormal, young adult
4: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? Just shy of her 16th birthday, a girl moves back to the family ranch in Twin Falls, Texas after her mother is mysteriously murdered and discovers she’s part of a legacy that goes back to the beginning of time.
6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency? Buzz Books USA trade paperback and ebook
7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? The first draft took about six months. I worked on it every day to keep my head in the story.
8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Series by Tara Hudson, Rachel Vincent and Cassandra Clare.
9: Who or what inspired you to write this book? Secret identity and hidden powers and really wishing I could fly.
10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? Really hot teen cowboy angels – good and bad boys. And haven’t you always wondered if you had an identical twin out there somewhere?
