MY TAKE ON THE NOVEL (by Mishael Austin Witty):
What would you do if your spouse died, leaving you as a single parent to preteen/teenage kids? Would you date again? Would you get married?
These are the questions that both David and Annette must ask themselves when they meet after their daughters have been assigned to work on a school project together. The mutual attraction is instant, but so is the characters’ denial and running away from their feelings.
Ultimately, David and Annette do end up together (this isn’t ever really in question), and several of their children find romantic partners, as well. This is a heartwarming story with a satisfying HEA. And it portrays fairly accurately the emotions families go through when they experience such a tragic loss.
I liked the characters. I liked the story. In fact, I probably would have given this novel five stars, if it hadn’t been for the verb tense changes and other editing issues (incorrect punctuation, misuse of some words, etc.). This book is in major need of a good edit. But, if you’re not bothered by things like that and you’re looking for a read that will leave you with a good, warm feeling, check this out. I think it’s a great first effort, and I look forward to seeing what happens to the characters in the future!
MINI AUTHOR INTERVIEW:
1. What does your significant other and family think of your writing career?
At first, my husband thought it was a joke. Then all my husband complained about was how much time it took to write something I probably was never going to publish. Now that I’ve published two books, he’s letting me do this as a full-time career.
2. What was one of the most surprising things you learned while writing your books?
I learned that writing is harder than it looks! Putting a coherent story together, keeping characters straight and making it sound legitimate? It’s hard!
3. Who is your favorite author?
Debbie Macomber is my absolute favorite author! Her work has inspired me and helped me grow as a writer.
4. If you were to write a series of novels, what would it be about?
This is a funny question as I am writing a series of novels! This series is all about two families merging together and learning to live as one. The other books branch off, and you see other families connect, but you always come back to the main family. I would love one day to write another series about time travel, but that’s in the future.
5. Describe what it’s like to be an author in three words.
Really, really hard!
6. Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers? If so, what are they?
Just put your fingers to the keyboard and go! Don’t give up on your dream!
7. Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?
I am an honest, hardworking writer, desperate to share a story. My thoughts, dreams, and feelings are all poured into my work, mind, body and soul.
