What is the working title of your book?
My current WIP is entitled 497 BC, but may be retitled Taming Theron.
Where did the idea come from for the book?
It is the prequel to A Spartan Love, Apollo's Men #3.
What genre does your book fall under?
It's a historical m/m erotic romance.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Andreas discovers that food really is the way to a man's heart.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I'm planning on subbing it to a historical m/m anthology.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
After two days, I'm approximately 1/3 done with the rough draft.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I haven't really read any similar stories so I would say Alexios' Fate, book 1 in the Apollo's Men series. Aleksandr Voinov's Spoils of War comes the next closest.

I wanted to tell the story of how Andreas and Theron met.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
The story takes place in Sparta during the beginning of the Persian War, approximately two decades before Thermopolae.
