Today we are excited to be a part of the Before and Ever Since Blog Tour with Sharla Lovelace. Sharla, take it away!
Hello to everyone and thanks for letting me come over and play!
People frequently ask me what my stories are about. Now that I’ve written two novels and a novella, I can see that I have a style. A trend. My stories are about coming home in some way. About facing your past. And about secrets.
I love secrets in a story. For me, the promise of the unknown, especially with multiple levels of lies and/or deceipt, can make the best plots.
In my latest book, BEFORE AND EVER SINCE, Emily Lockwood has alot on her plate. She is successful in her own right, with a solid real estate career, but has a headstrong daughter, a mother who marches to her own drummer, and an ex-husband who needs sex therapy. Enter into this picture a house with an agenda, and the return of her first love, rocking a tool belt and a paintbrush and dark eyes full of secrets, and Emily just flat out has things to get through and get over. The biggest, being a massive secret of her own.
These deceptions can change lives. Change futures. Secrets are powerful like that. Something as simple as keeping an assumption to yourself, can create a domino ripple effect that is still felt twenty years later. That’s what Ben and Emily encounter in BEFORE AND EVER SINCE.
Have you ever had a significant experience with secrets? Was the power of it for good, or for bad?
Thanks for having me, and I hope you enjoy the book!
