The Ninja Tattoo by Dellani Oakes

I’ve joined THE NEXT BIG THING, thanks to Marta Moran Bishop who invited me. She’s the author of The Between Times   She was invited by Ben Woodward who is the author of Stairway to Danger.

WHAT IS THE WORKING TITLE OF YOUR BOOK?

My book is called The Ninja Tattoo

WHERE DID THE IDEA COME FROM FOR THE BOOK? It was inspired by an incident I had while driving back to my house one morning. It was such a strange occurrence, it really stuck in my brain. Although I used this incident in the book, fortunately, the other things that happen to Teague never happened to me.

WHAT GENRE DOES YOUR BOOK FALL UNDER?

The Ninja Tattoo is romantic suspense

WHICH ACTORS WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO PLAY YOUR CHARACTERS IN A MOVIE RENDITION?

Teague McMurtry = Eric Winters Vivica Rambo = Sara Shahi

WHAT IS THE ONE-SENTENCE SYNOPSIS OF YOUR BOOK?

Teague thought he was safe when he came home from Afghanistan, but an infamous biker gang had other ideas.

WILL YOUR BOOK BE SELF-PUBLISHED OR REPRESENTED BY AN AGENCY?

The Ninja Tattoo was published by Tirgearr Publishing.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO WRITE THE FIRST DRAFT OF YOUR MANUSCRIPT?

I originally wrote this book for the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) challenge two years ago. It took about three weeks to finish.

WHAT OTHER BOOKS WOULD YOU COMPARE THIS STORY TO WITHIN YOUR GENRE?

I don’t know of any other books like this in the genre.

WHO OR WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS BOOK?

I got the idea coming home one day from dropping off my son. I found myself in puzzling circumstances, followed by a biker who seemed intent on following me home. My mind clicked into high gear as I tried to figure out what the heck was going on. That’s how The Ninja Tattoo was born.

WHAT ELSE ABOUT YOUR BOOK MIGHT PIQUE THE READER’S INTEREST?

There are some steamy love scenes in the book. They aren’t Habañero hot, but they are Jalapeño hot.

Look for these amazing authors next week!
