Author Special - J.H.CARDWELL

Today I have the pleasure in introducing aspiring author J.H.Cardwell to the Novel Cafe. Thank you to Julie for taking the time to write this piece, I for one are very much looking forward to reading your books :-)

Attainment and Atonement by J. H. Cardwell (the Attainment Series)

I, like most of you, am an avid reader of mostly contemporary romance, new adult books, and some chick-lit. I am not a fan of very slow reads though. I like the story to move quickly, keep my interest, and make me want to not put it down. While this drives me crazy from lack of sleep the next day, it is a welcome buzz in feeling like I have actually lived the story.

So, after years of reading two and three novels a week, I decided to pursue my interest in writing my own stories. I have jotted down ideas here and there over time; so when it was time to pick my debut novel storyline, I chose one that came directly from local headlines. See, I have three daughters, and reading about a date rape victim who decided to talk about her horrific life-changing story, in hopes of alerting other young girls, became the perfect starter. For those of you that haven’t read Attainment, be prepared for a shocking prologue or as others have termed it an ‘in your face’ beginning. Once the tragedy occurs, the rest of the story is totally fictitious on how this character may have lived her life – love, school, friends, family etc… in the weeks, months, years to come. You can read about love, lust, betrayal, and friendship. There is even a murder in the story. Overcoming this tragedy and finding true love yields to a challenging love triangle for Reese in the book Attainment. [Teaser…wait until you read more about Reese and the chain of events with those special guys in Atonement - now out!]

What have been some of your favorite basis for a good story? Do you have stories ripped from the headlines that would make for a great novel? I have many ideas for upcoming books that I can’t wait for you to read; but!! You can learn more by logging on to Follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Goodreads. Right now is a great time to join and win some nice giveaways during my blog tour for Attainment and special pricing events! I look forward to hearing from you all!
