What is the title of your book?
Pandora - Book 1 of the Jayne Pheare Series
Where did the idea come from?
I've never been a huge fan of this question, but that's mostly because I don't always remember where I get my ideas from. Thankfully I do actually remember where this one came from, so I can answer the question. Last nano I was hanging out in our chat room (which I may be slightly addicted to during November) where we have an awesome name generator for all of those character naming emergencies you have during nano. (If you've never done nano, trust me, these do happen. More often than you would think.) Anyway, one of the other regulars (we're having the room tested for drugs...so far it's clean) was randomly generating names. I don't know if he was actually looking for a name, or just procrastinating, but regardless, many a name was being brought up, most of which were being made fun of or just out right rejected. And then Jane Fear popped up. I was hooked immediately. I knew I had to make that character, though I honestly didn't know anything else about the character (as you may have noticed, I have since changed the spelling of the name.). I took the idea and ran with it.
What genre does your book fall under?
What actors would you chose to play your characters in a movie?
Honestly, this is probably the hardest question on here, as I don't cast my characters before I write the book. I prefer to imagine them exactly the way I want them, rather than equating them with a face that isn't exactly right. But, as it's a question being asked on a challenge I've committed to doing, I suppose I'll do my best, though I guarantee nothing.

What is the one - two sentence synopsis for your book?
A conscience can make an assassin's job hell.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I'm definitely hoping to be represented by an agency. Not that I have anything against self publishing, and will probably self publish if the traditional route doesn't go anywhere, it's just that I don't particularly trust myself to do everything correctly. To have a solid book that I wouldn't cringe while reading if I had bought it. To be able to advertise it enough to make any kind of profit. So, I would prefer to have an agent and publisher.
What else about your book will pique your readers' interest?
While assassins and werewolves have both been done, putting them together isn't something you see very often. Add in a conscience, some sexual tension and a bit of a mystery, and I think this is a book any Urban Fantasy reader would love.
Alright, so here are the tags. The person who tagged me tagged three people, so I'll do the same:
