I Was Tagged and the Winners Are!

That's our photo of Ivy hopping. Now she's famous. Uh-huh.
 My blogging friend, Rachna Chhabria tagged me in the The Next Big Thing Bloghop Peeps!!!!!!!!!! I was supposed to post this last week. But *blows out a long, deep, sigh* life got in my way. But before I do that,  here are the winners of Lynn Kelley's super duper chapter book, Curse of the Double Digits. 

Pa rum de dummmm dum dum:

Sharon Mayhew - Signed paperback
Susan Kaye Quinn - eBook 

Yippee for y'all. Today is your lucky day. (I already blabbed this to Mayhew in an email!) So technically, yesterday was her lucky day. *ahem*
 On to the the questions.

What is the working title of your book?
Depends on which book you mean. I have several picture books and two MG novels in the works. I'll pick one. The first one.
Where did the idea come from for the book? From  my hubby, actually.
What genre does your book fall under? Contemporary. It's MG.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Oh let me think. Elle Fanning, Ryan Newman, and Chandler Canterbury. Okay the casting has finished. Let us make the movie! *wink*
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? Thirteen-year-old Anna doesn’t let anything hold her back--not her diabetes and certainly not a few wisps of grey cloud threatening her afternoon horse ride. 
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? Repped.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? Ack! One year.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Gary Paulsen’s HATCHET and Kathleen Duey’s HOOFBEATS
Who or What inspired you to write this book? My horses really. They are so fast and free. Two of them are in the story.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? It's adventure. If you love thrilling story line then this book is for you! Anna and Claire are alone in the Blue Ridge Mountains after a freako thunderstorm hits. They are lost, alone, and afraid.  They have to become strong in the midst of wild animals and no food. It's switches POV with Anna and her brother Ian. He's back at the ranch and means to find Anna and Claire no matter what.

Now I must tag some peeps. So I tag YOU! Happy weekend peeps! MWAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Ivy can really jump!
    I took over a year to write my first book, so don't feel bad.

  2. So excited and exciting for you. My daughter will love your book when it is finally out there. Hugs :O)

  3. Hi Robyn .. great for Sharon and Susan ...

    ideas, ideas, - good to have a few books on the go .. Sounds like it should be called 365 - if it took a year ... not 72?!

    I'd love to read the Blue Ridge Mountains lost and searched for parts - the Blue Ridge Mountains always sound so magical ..

    Happy weekend to you .. cheers Hilary

  4. @ Alex, she should. She gets plenty of experience here on the farm. Ha!

    @ Diane, when it's finally out there. My thoughts exactly! :-)

    @ Hil, Ha ha haaa. 365. Yep. But I was just glad to finish it. The 72 hours reference is to how long they are lost. I love the Blue Ridge Mountains, Hil. I live near them. Hugs!

  5. Congrats to Sharon and Susan! Fun to learn more about you and your writing, amigo. :) You will be repped someday. I just know it!
    Hugs and blessings,

  6. Look at your daughter! Love it!

    Congrats to Susan and Sharon.

    Good luck with 72 Hours. Sounds like you got something worth getting repped there.

  7. Thanks for sharing. Loved hearing about your book. And to learn you have horses. How cool!

  8. Ivy can really jump. You told me about 72 hours. I even read the query letter. It sounds cool. Good luck with it, Robyn.

    Thanks for participating in the bloghop. Enjoyed reading your answers.

  9. Congratulations, Robyn! I can't wait to read your book! A year is not long to write a good book. It's the rush jobs I worry about. I am sure it will be wonderful, BBF! Hugs to you!

  10. I love Ivy and her enthusiasm :) She is adorable! Now, how long before that book comes out?! Miss you!

  11. Sounds like a fun book with a strong MC. I don't read enough Middle Grade, but I did read a great one last week. The Upside of Ordinary by Susan Lubner. It was also a lot of fun with a smart and spunky lead character.

    Wishing you all the best with this and all of your other projects, Robyn!

  12. That's awesome!
    I can't wait to read your book someday!

  13. You wrote a book that is like "The Hatchet." It's bound to be a success. Congrats!

  14. Your WIP sounds fantastic. I can't wait to read the books I've seen in this tag. My blog friends have awesome manuscripts in the works.

  15. That's a great photo of Ivy! And Seventy-Two Hours is a rockin' title, and so is the novel. Can't wait till it's pubbed and made into a movie! Woot!

  16. OMGoodness! I'm a winner....(doing the winner dance)

    I love Hatchet! You'll have to "use" me when you are ready for a critique.

  17. it's a great story -- and I know it will be on shelves someday soon. hope you are well Robyn!

  18. Sounds like a great book, and I love the title!
