Today my sixth book in the Second Chance Love Story series was officially released. This book is extra special because it also happens to the be long-awaited follow up to Searching for Glory.
When I first wrote about Glory, Johnny, Jake, and Vic, the story flowed out of my fingers. Despite the sometimes sad twists and turns, it was also a story of love and redemption. When it was done, I thought I had left the characters in a place of closure. But after moving on to write other stories, those original characters kept coming back to me.
I knew that I had to continue to tell their stories.
What happened to Jake after losing his wife? Did Glory give up her acting career? What does her life look like now that she is finally together with Johnny, the love of her life? How are Vic's kids handling life without their mother?
After Victory explores all of this, but most importantly the impossible challenge of moving on and learning to love again. The sequel took longer to write than the original, probably because of the pressure to stay true to the characters that readers grew to love in the first novel. I hope I've done them justice.
