Happy Release Day — One More Tomorrow

17 Sep

Happy release day for One More Tomorrow, Melanie Stevenson‘s debut novel! Please check out this exciting new book and its author below!

 

Sometimes a second chance is just an opportunity to get hurt all over again.

It’s been two years. That should be enough time to forget a first love. But Katie Banks is still waiting. Not even Justin Burke, her university classmate, has been able to erase the hurt Aiden Ford inflicted. When Katie accepts a scholarship to study abroad, it places much-needed distance between her and Justin. During her time away, Katie becomes an accomplished artist. But love still alludes her, until a stormy night, a tragic accident, and a hospital stay change everything.

One More Tomorrow explores how carrying hurt, regret, and holding on to our perfect ideas of love, can blind us to the true love that is right before our eyes.

EXCERPT

Without knowing it, she had built a wall, a fortress even, using the hardened bricks of past hurts. Somehow Justin had scaled that wall, and now he stood brazenly before her, inviting her to love him, and all she wanted to do was run for reinforcements. She could never explain it to him, and even if she could, he wouldn’t understand. It was a dreadfully familiar place to be. Hadn’t she tried to explain before, with Aiden? That had been agonizing enough. If Justin was supposed to be her soul mate, God would have to figure it out.

 

Born in England, Melanie Stevenson has never lost her love of British tea and gardens. Her family immigrated to Canada when she was five years old and settled in southern Ontario. Years later, she entered the University of Waterloo as an English major and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Growing up, Melanie was passionate about reading, writing, and drawing. She wrote her first novel at age twelve. Since becoming a Christian at age eighteen, she has filled countless journal pages with prayers which became the inspiration behind her devotionals.

One More Tomorrow (Summer 2019) is Melanie’s debut novel, the first line of which was conceived in an airport terminal. Her second book, Soul Focus (coming Fall 2019), is a selection of devotionals written over a span of ten years.

Passionate about the arts, Melanie is also an abstract painter who specializes in acrylic and oil. For over twenty-five years, she has been involved in theatre and has written and directed numerous stage plays. She continues to teach acting classes to young people and adults.

She and her husband, Ralph, are parents of four amazing humans: Kurtis, Konnor, Elanna, and Keira. For eighteen years, Melanie homeschooled and passed on her love of the arts to her children.

Melanie is passionate about telling others of the healing love of Jesus, and championing others in their faith journey through both the written and spoken word.
