Then Again, Maybe Blog Tour: Author Interview + Giveaway


Then Again, Maybe JustRead Blog + Review 

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Then Again, Maybe by Susan L. Tuttle, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

Then Again, Maybe

Title: Then Again, Maybe 
Series: Along Came Love
Author: Susan L. Tuttle
Publisher: BLING! Romance
Release Date: November 17, 2020
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Former beauty queen Belle Thornton knows what it is to think she has it all, only to discover she never valued what was truly important. Raising her daughter and building a thriving thrift shop that helps single mothers like herself has taught Belle what the word beautiful really means. Unfortunately, thanks to her shady landlord, Belle must toss those hard-earned dollars into the money-pit of a rental that houses both her tiny apartment and her business or risk the city closing her doors. When funds dwindle as quickly as her to-do list grows, she is forced to rely on the absolute last rescuer she’d choose: Micah Shaw. 

Leaving Belle at the altar, pregnant, was the worst choice Micah ever made. He returns home, hoping to reconcile with Belle and their toddler. While balancing his medical residency with caring for his ailing mother, he strives to win Belle’s heart again and ensure her business remains open. Helping with that is the easy part. Chiseling through the rock encompassing Belle's heart is more of a challenge, but one he’s determined to conquer. 

If only he could get her to realize that a new lease on love may be their best collaboration of all.

Hi Susan! Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and giving my readers the chance to get to know you and your new book- Then Again, Maybe a little bit better!  I like to start these interviews the same way with something fun to break the ice: can you share 5 random facts about yourself that we will NOT find in your bio?

I’m the youngest of 4.

I do not like to nap.

I love tacos.

I’m a Lions fan – though I’m not sure why at this moment ;)

I cannot do anything crafty to save my life.

Let’s talk writing! When did you first discover that you had a passion and talent for writing?

At a very young age! I won my first writing contest as a first grader and was hooked.

What drew you to writing romance and why was it important to you to include aspects of faith within your stories as well?

Ohhhh! This question has my heart! For me, Jesus is the biggest romancer of all. He pursues us and loves us lavishly, so my stories always tend to come from that angle of love and romance, because it just sets me up to talk about him. And as far as why I include faith aspects, well, my faith is such a central part of my life that I can’t separate myself, how I speak, or how I see the world, from it. So everything I do is going to come through the lens of faith, including my writing. And I hope that in some way it sparks readers to deepen their relationship with Jesus, because at the end of the day, that is what truly matters.

While I have only had the chance to read one of your previous novels (so far), I thoroughly enjoyed the authenticity of your characters- their flaws and seeing their growth in God made them all the more relatable. Will we see the same in this book?

Most definitely. These two characters, Belle and Micah, have a lot of change that needs to occur in their lives. A little has already taken place off-page, but their journey was far from complete at the start of this book.

Can you tell us a little bit about Then Again, Maybe?

It’s a second-chance love story. Belle and Micah were in book one of the series, At First Glance, and they most definitely did not get their HEA in that story. In fact, they weren’t the nicest of characters back then. They both had their reasons, and some of those you’ll discover in Then Again, Maybe as they work to find their way back to each other.

What do you hope readers will take away from the book?

A new perspective on forgiveness and reconciliation. Those are two really tough things to walk through, but there’s such freedom when we allow God to heal our hearts and help us release old hurts.

Then Again, Maybe is the second book in the Along Came Love series. Will readers who have not read the first book be able to enjoy this as a standalone?

100%. While the books are definitely connected, I wrote them as standalones that enhance each other rather than depend on each other. So jump on in!

Thank you again for taking the time to answer these questions. Before you go, are there any other projects you are currently working on that you can share?

I actually just finished the third book in this series which will be Rachael and Evan’s story. You’ll see that hit shelves the end of this year! Thanks SO MUCH for having me <3
