#TheSoulThatRedeemsMe by Author H.J. Marshall
Blog Tour takes place:
21 January 2019 – 1 February 2019
Love, not time, heals all wounds, but the scars remain forever.
Josh Kennedy experienced a difficult childhood no one should have to endure. Losing his family at the age of twelve, Josh learns that family isn’t about blood but who loves you in life. Adopted into a loving home, he begins to realize that a life full of love and friendship, is a life worth living.
Emily Sheppard came from a loving home surrounded by friends and family who adored her. At the age of fifteen, she experienced something so horrific, the rest of her life was forever altered. Withdrawing into herself, Emily walks through each day with a fake smile and a broken soul.
Until Josh Kennedy.
When fate reunites Emily’s brother with his forever love, it also delivers Josh right to Emily’s doorstep. Josh knew from the first touch that Emily was destined to be his One but her painful past kept him at an arm’s length. Josh keeps chipping away at the wall Emily erected around her heart until he had proven to her that no matter the past, the future is always a new chance at happiness.
When ghosts of the past begin to swirl around Emily, Josh must fight her demons while confronting his own. When presented with their chance at forever, will the two broken souls find a way to heal as one or will they allow the past to ruin their forever?
Name / Pen name & little about yourself:
H.J. Marshall–I am a married, 44-year-old woman who believes in true love. I have been married for 18 years and am the mommy to 2 very high maintenance cats. I lived on a deer reservation for 15 years and dream of a cottage on the beach.
When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I realized I wanted to be a writer in high school when I won a scholarship to college for essays I had written. I changed majors and gained my business degree, but recently, I have found myself back in familiar territory of writing and it felt like coming home.
What genre are your books? and what made you write in that genre?
I write Contemporary Romance and ventured into the genre because of the realistic feel of Contemporary Romance. They are stories that you can imagine happening in real life and can relate to.
When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I wrote my first book in 2nd grade at the age of 7…it was about a farm pig and his adventures. 😊
Where do you get your ideas for your books?
My current series came to me while taking a walk through a century old park and saw initials carved into a tree. The idea of being someone’s forever resonated with me and the Forever Mine Series was born!
How long does it typically take you to write a book?
Typically, I can write a book in 6 weeks and have it fully edited within 8 weeks of starting the writing process.
How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I have written 3 books to date and The Soul That Redeems Me is my favorite book I have written.
Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? How do you overcome it?
I suffered from writer’s block while writing The Soul That Redeems Me so I began to take walks in the woods, allowing the peace of nature to overtake me. I also talked out my block with my alpha reader and was able to get back on track and finish strong with a book I am proud of.
Have you done any collaborations with other writers?
I have not collaborated with any other writers but I hope to in the future.
What do you think of reviews?
Reviews are helpful for readers to determine if they may like a book and they give the author insight into areas readers may love or hate. Bad reviews give me motivation to write better, stronger characters and plotlines.
