ISWG Update: A couple of months ago I posted about setting the best price for ebooks. I'm happy to report that when my publisher lowered the price from $6.99 to $2.99 for two of my novels, sales improved for all three of my novels! Now, it's not to the level where I can consider quitting my day job as psychologist (not even CLOSE), but it makes me happy to know that more readers are finding my books.
Today's post is in response to author Darcia Helle tagging me for the blog challenge THE NEXT BIG THING. It all started from author Gail Baugniet HERE. The rules are:
Answer 10 questions about my current WIP (Work-In-Progress)
Tag five other writers and link their blogs so we can all hop over and read their answers.
What is the working title of your book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
What genre does your book fall under?
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
I liked Gail's idea to answer one question a week, with the hope her WIP would be finished at the end of ten weeks. I'm 70,000 words into my WIP, so that's a challenging yet realistic goal for me with my full-time job.
So, today's question is: What is the working title of your book?
On Best Behavior (The Conduct Series #3)
Now I'm tagging five writers for The Next Best Thing Blog Challenge. Tell us about your WIP...

Two announcements to end this post:
1. I'm giving away an ebook of YA sports romance Streamline at Laurie's blog until 9/22. Stop by to hear why I use a pen name and other strange information.
2. Thanks to fellow author Carol Oates, my free YA short story Swim Recruit has a new cover and wider availability on Smashwords.
This is my first story up on Smashwords and I'm finding it to be an awesome site. If you enjoy an Irish faerie short story, check out Carol Oates The Summer Prince HERE.
Writers, here's to being bold and confident this month. *cheers*
