Watch the Video Pitch Logline for the Novel:
Get to know writer C.P. Munro:
1. What makes your story unique and also engaging?
A man sells his heart and soul for monetary reasons believing his life is going to change for the better. He cold-heartedly takes what he feels he deserves regardless of whose well-being he tampers with. Little does he know what karma lies ahead? He’ll face the ultimate sacrifice. To take what he never earned in the first place, or save a young woman from a depleting life in prison, a woman he discovers is his twin sister, a sister he never knew about. What will be engaging is what will he do? And what will be the outcome afterwards.
2. Why does the world need to know about your story?
The story gives a good idea of how the way things used to be. The story takes place in the 1940”s, therefore it captivates an older audience as they take a trip down memory lane with songs they once danced too, clothes they once wore, cars they once drove and the certain standard of ethics which followed in those days.
Example: A woman’s honor and how certain things were hidden in a closet.
The story also would educate a younger audience as the times have certainly changed since then.
3. What type of music do you see in your story if made into a movie?
The story takes place in the 1940”s so for scenes such as Virginia’s wedding, I picture an orchestra playing whatever was popular at that time. For suspenseful scenes, dramatic music with violins and piano add to the suspense. Soft music for romantic scenes, my favourite instrument sound is the piano. And of course the main couple should have a theme song ( their song )
4. What films have you seen most in your life?
My 3 Favorites are: Gone with the wind, Rebecca, Dead Ringer
5. What artists would you love to work with?
I have a vision in my head of what the characters look like, how they talk, and how each of them differs. But none are well known actors. Sometimes I feel a story is stronger when an unknown actor takes the part. To me my train of thought is never broken and I can actually place myself amongst them. The story becomes incredibly real; it’s as if it’s actually happening. Many times I’ve watched an intense scene where a new character is introduced, he’s about to make his appearance, and then suddenly it’s the actor who plays the part of Kevin on the Young and the Restless. Wow I recognise him but the moment got lost, the suspense which was building vanished in an instant. I’m now thinking about the Young and the Restless instead of the story itself. There are numerous unknown talented actors out there and I’m sure many would love the opportunity to start their career with a role as powerful as that of Joseph Hall, Edward Williams, and Margret Williams and of course Sophie Logan.
6. Other than writing what else are you passionate about?
I really enjoy TV Series. I’ve watched many and have a hard time limiting myself to 2 or 3 episodes a day. My favourites are: Breaking Bad, Nashville and Wentworth. I feel The Decision would make a very good TV Series; I am currently writing the second part, the continuing story of The Decision and named it Revenge in Manhattan. Both books combined I think an enticing title would be something like The Ambitious Mr. Hall. I can see the ladies around the water cooler discussing last night’s episode as they fall madly in love with him or madly love to ring his neck, whatever the case may be, and yes of course the actor playing Joseph Hall is drop-dead gorgeous, irresistible, a man many women could easily forgive.
7. Do you have a set writing routine?
No I write when the idea comes to me. Whether that’s 3 o’clock in the morning or while I’m grocery shopping, I always carry a pen and small notebook on me.
