Eva Winners - Everlasting Romance for Every Century
Eva Winners released her first novel Second Chance At Love in 2020 and has been writing vigorously ever since. She writes about everlasting romance for every century focusing on characters emotional development and always guarantees a HEA. She loves yoga, wine, and her kiddos. In her spare time, she seeks adventures either hiking through trails or exploring the beaches. As our Author of the Day, she tells us all about her book, Devotion: Isn't What.
Please give us a short introduction to what Devotion: Isn't What It Seems is about.
Devotion is book 1 of Love Isn’t What It Seems series. Each book in the series shows a different face of love and what it represents. It is not what it seems from the outside.
The main character, Eve Bailey, struggles to find purpose in life after losing her husband and her son. Hopeless, she is not living, but only existing. Then she finds a way to pick herself up with the help of an amazing family. Slowly, she picks herself up and finds her old strength and the desire to love and live again.
What inspired you to write this story? Was there anything in particular that made you want to tackle this?
Honestly, story formed in my head out of nowhere... and the rest is history, as they say.
Tell us more about Eve Bailey. What makes her so special?
To me, Eve Bailey represents hope. When she lost what she loved the most, she didn’t want to live on. But she had her sister to help her through. Finding love again was a way to show readers there was a way to continue in life, even when all seems lost. We just have to hang on, survive.
Readers say that tissues are a must when reading this book. Was this intentional?
No, it was not intentional at all. Honestly, I am still not sure how it happened. This story just poured out of me and I had it finished within a few weeks... on top of my intensive day job. LOL
Sisterly love also plays an important role in this story. Why?
Because sometimes it is that one family member and that one special friend that help you through the hardest times. If you have one of those, keep them close and never let go.
Do any of your characters ever take off on their own tangent, refusing to do what you had planned for them?
This is funny. I feel like every single one of the characters do that. I usually have an idea and run with it. As I write, I am on the journey of self-discovery, just as my characters are.
What is the best writing advice you've ever received?
The best advice was a recommendation to write at least a page per day. It became a daily exercise for my brain, just like running on a treadmill was an exercise for my heart.
What are you working on right now?
I am working on a mafia romance trilogy, Russian Sinners with first book coming out in April 2021, second in May 2021, and last one in June 2021.
