Another Big Thing

We’ve been tagged by the lovely Bronwyn Green to do this blog hop and answer question about our latest WIP, or work in progress to you non-writers. It’s actually a weird coinkidink because we’ve done 2 of these before and since writing our new novel, have been wanting someone to tag us in one of these so we can tell you more about Bleeding Empire. Bronwyn must’ve read our minds. Sorry about that! If you want to read Bronwyn’s answers, check out her blog here –

What is the working title of your next book?

Bleeding Empire. Fun Fact – we actually got the title from one of those Facebook games where you make a metal band name out of these words, depending on your initials. Cat’s was Black Zombies, Lynx’s was Forbidden Zombies and Ryan’s was Bleeding Empire. We loved it so much we wrote it down to use as a book title.

Where did the idea come from for the book?

We think it was after reading a Terry Pratchett book with the four horsemen in it and we thought it’d be cool to have novel based on the myth, but with entirely different characters. It wasn’t until we wrote the words ‘Chapter 1’ we figured out who Death would be.

What genre does your book fall under?

Horror, maybe urban fantasy.

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

Oooh tough one. Ian Somerhalder would be great as Aeron, one of the Deaths. (Death is twins). His sister, Morgan could be played by Rose McGowen. It wouldn’t matter who played Mac (Pestilence) as he’d be wearing prosthetics. Demi (Famine) would have to be played by an ultra skinny supermodel, and Marsden (War) by someone utterly gorgeous. Ooh we have a pic of a seriously hot male model. He’ll be perfect!

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your books?

The five horsemen descend on earth to start the Apocalypse and bring the world to its knees.

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

Self-published more than likely. That way we can retain control. We’re control freaks. If a publisher wants it, they’ll have agree to give us free reign over the cover.

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

35 days 😀 It was our NaNoWriMo novel.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

The closest we can think of is one we’ve written called Legion of the Damned, but that doesn’t count. Um…not sure.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?

NaNoWriMo. We wanted to take part, had a really vague idea of this one so just jumped in and wrote it. With NO plans.

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

It’s the four horsemen of the apocalypse but not as you know them. They’re actually the offspring of the original horsemen so they ride motorbikes instead of horses (health and safety won’t let them use horses) and they can’t stand each other. Morgan & Aeron are psychotic, Demi is a fame-hungry super model and a bitch, Mac is a nice guy but revolting and Marsden is funny, hot and has a very dark side. It’s got horror, comedy, blood and a sexy angel called Drew who wants to stop the apocalypse but is also in love with Marsden and knows that if he were to give into his desires, he’ll fall and take the world down with him.
