If your a regular reader or frequent visitor of Jorie Loves A Story, you know I’ve been smitten with the novelists who publish their relationship-based Romances with ChocLitUK for a good two years now! I love being on the cusp of learning about a ‘new release’ whilst I remain patient to see if the Digital First new ChocLit novel will make it to a print release further down the road of it’s lifetime. I don’t mind the gaps between the ebooks and the print editions – as it’s always given me the pleasure of balancing my ‘next ChocLit reads’ to include both Front List and Back List offerings.

I hosted Ms Browne’s Cover Reveal for “The Rest of My Life” last July [2015] as part of the reveal celebrations coordinated through Brook Cottage Book Tours. This year, I have the pleasure of joining the Reveal Team put together directly through ChocLitUK! I could not be more delighted – as I love having a bit of an advanced notice about what is upcoming by the ChocLit authors – as they all write across such a wide array of sub-genres, I am never at a loss for needing a ChocLit fix! If anything – sorting out which story to focus on and which ‘new’ author to explore next is the hardest part as a book reviewer for the publisher!

I get so giddy about making selections – it’s such a joy to take a bit of extra time throughout the score of the year to highlight the novelists I haven’t yet had the joy of reading whilst finding new threads of topics to converse about during my weekly Saturday #ChocLitSaturdays chat! I developed this chat to help bring a larger awareness about the publisher inasmuch as to help bridge together the bookish: writers, readers and book bloggers!

Today, I have the joy of re-highlighting Sheryl Browne – with a realistic romantic depth of story-line that is sure to touch your heart-strings – just by the premise alone!

On my connection to the author:

I happily have had the pleasure of interacting with Ms Browne through #ChocLitSaturday the chat off/on for the past year or thereabouts. She is a delightful presence to have in the chats and I am thankful she found a niche where she felt comfortable chattering with fellow ChocLit authors, Romance novelists, book bloggers, readers, and other bookishly chatty spirits who alight on Saturdays!

I am disclosing this, to assure you that I can formulate an honest opinion, even though I have interacted with her ahead of reading her novels. I treat each book as a ‘new experience’, whether I personally know the author OR whether I am reading a book by them for the first time. This is also true when I follow-up with them on future releases and celebrate the book birthdays that come after their initial publication.

Cover Reveal | NEW #ChocLit novel by Sheryl Browne “Learning to Love”!Learning to Love Cover Reveal
by Sheryl Browne

Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places …

Living in a small village like Hibberton, it’s expected that your neighbours help you in a time of need. But when Andrea Kelly’s house burns down, taking all her earthly possessions with it, it’s the distant and aloof Doctor David Adams – the person she would least expect – who opens his door not just to her, but to her three kids and slightly dotty elderly mother as well.

Andrea needs all the help she can get, dealing with aftermath of the fire and in the suspicious absence of her husband, Jonathan. But, as she gets to know David and his troubled son, Jake, she begins to realise that maybe they need her help as much as she needs theirs …

Ms Browne’s new story is releasing next month, in June – today is the world-wide reveal for her cover art and a pre-celebration on her forthcoming #PubDay! It’s a chance for new readers to discover ChocLitUK and for those of us who already love ChocLit to help give a wink and a nod to a publisher who understands the needs of readers who are seeking ‘something’ quite unique and lovely in their Romance Fiction Next Reads! It’s a joyful day for me – as I love uncovering stories of second chance relationships – where people get a renewing sense of wonder about falling in love and the joys of finding someone who wants to walk through life with you.

If you take a ganderment around my blog and the reviews I am featuring for Romance Fiction and Women’s Fiction – you’ll start to notice a bit of a threading of ‘hope filled stories’ where all is never quite lost and despite your obstacles, adversities and storm brewing difficult seas to navigate in life – there is a better tomorrow just about to surface on the horizon. I love stories of redemption inasmuch as stories of life affirming new possibilities. I love rooting out stories that make your heart lift and your spirit to feel a bit of an intact of joy as your reading about characters who are finding their way inside their lives – moment by moment, striving to arrive inside their tomorrow with a bit more confidence and a lot more affirmative conviction life is surely going to be alright.

I love finding families who are struggling to right what went wrong too, such as the family we are stepping inside to find occupying the story of Learning to Love. These are people whose spirits are on the lower end of the spectrum where hope feels like a far-off dream – not quite in reach and a bit difficult to fuse into their living reality. I like taking the healing journey with characters who aren’t quite sure how tomorrow is going to pan out but aren’t quite ready to throw in the towel either! Characters who have a bit of moxie or just a pure belief in themselves to overcome ‘whichever’ curveball life wants to hand them to face – to strengthen themselves through the journey.

I appreciate writers who are writing about non-traditional families, as there are so many routes towards parenthood as there is family – to root out the stories of everyday people and give back a bit of a shining light to guide a troubled ship into a safe harbour is a keen discovery! I am passionate about small towne fiction too! I love writers who write about community togetherness and the interactions of community members who have a genuine respect and care about everyone’s well-being – it’s the throwback to the way life always used to be, but isn’t quite as noticeable now.

Ms Browne never fails to ignite my curiosities about how her characters will live through their circumstances and find the will to right their sails towards a better tomorrow. She writes with a heart-centred focus on second changes and new beginnings. We all need stories like this to read, to re-bolster what we all know to be true – no matter how difficult our difficulties might seem, there is a way forward and through to an even keel of shared happiness with those we love most.

Similar to blog tours where I feature book reviews, as I choose to highlight an author via a Guest Post, Q&A, Interview, etc., I do not receive compensation for featuring supplemental content on my blog. I provide the questions for interviews and topics for the guest posts; wherein I receive the responses back from publicists and authors directly. I am naturally curious about the ‘behind-the-scenes’ of stories and the writers who pen them; I have a heap of joy bringing this content to my readers.

Reader Interactive Question:

Have you previously had the pleasure of reading a ChocLitUK Romance novel!? Did you now they regularly release novels with strong female leads and male characters who are a delight to find on the pages? ChocLit truly has found a niche for giving romance readers something hearty to chew on whilst seeking out uplifting relationship-based Rom with just a dash and a hint of intrigue, drama, and suspense!

What do you seek out from a romance novel?

The relationship-based drama, comedy, historical, or suspense? OR the strength of the setting, timescape, and dimensional eclipse of the characters therein!?

  1. Thank you so much, Jorie, for revealing my absolutely beautiful cover! Choc Lit’s covers are always as gorgeous as the stories between them. I think, I hope, Learning to Love, which is indeed a story of second chances and new beginnings, lives up to its enticingly divine wrapping. Thanks you too for your wonderful observations about my story. You are spot on! My hope is always for my characters to find a way forward and sail towards a better future, together! Have a lovely day! :) xx
