DISCLOSURE: Freda's Voice received no compensation for posting. Post contains affiliate links.

Author, Aris Whittier is here today to tell us about her new book, Across Eternity, and answer a few of my burning questions. First up, let's check out the cover.


Brrr and beautiful! I love fall, and immediately think of it with the glow of the amber leaves. But brrrr for the snow.

Here is the synopsis from Amazon:
*Suitable for ages 13+*

Across Eternity is a beautiful love story that tells of love that transcends time....

Logan Richards is doubly blessed. Not only is he a genius but he has a rare gift, he remembers things and not just from this life but all his lifetimes. He lives a life of wealth and luxury and has never lacked any material possession. There has never been an obstacle his intellect couldn't overcome. But Logan has a problem: every night he dreams of the same woman, a woman he has dreamt of all his life. He knows she is real and he is determined to find her and convince her she belongs with him, forever.

Amber Lewis, a waitress for a five-star restaurant in Dana Point, California, is overworked and stressed. Her sister's death has left her weary and wondering if there's something more to life than mere existence. Then, one evening while working she meets Logan Richards, a chivalrous man who feels deeply familiar.

Fate has brought them together, but will their growing love prove strong enough to resist the forces that could pull them apart?

Now, let's learn more about the author. Here is a short bio:

Please tell readers about your current book, in your own words.
Across Eternity is a beautiful love story that tells of love that transcends time. It will pull at your heart.


Who or what inspires your writing?
My inspiration comes from my love of life, my imagination, and the fact that I absolutely love to write about the male/female relationship.


When did you know you would be a writer?
I never aspired to be a writer. However, I’ve always loved to read and write. Growing up, I would read anything from Readers Digest to Stephen King. When I was younger, I used to love to tell stories…my mom called them lies…but I considered it creative story telling… LOL. When I was 16 I pick up my first romance book and I fell in love with the genre. When I was in college I wrote my first romance novel and it was then that I knew I wanted to be a writer.


How long did it take you to write you first novel?
Almost one year. It was 78,000 words.


What is the hardest part of writing for you?
I write in spurts and that is very frustrating. Sometimes I’ll write thirty pages in a day and other times I can barely get a paragraph written.


Do you have any writing rituals?
Not really—though I love to have a cup of coffee by my side when I’m writing.


Have you written anything else?
Yes! I have three other romance novels out. Fatal Embrace and Secrets are romantic suspense’s. Fatal Embrace was featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine as a “Red-Hot” Read! If you loved the show “Ghost Whisperer” then pick up Secrets because there’s a little ghost whispering going on in it…LOL. I also have a contemporary romance out, Foolish Notions.


Any advice to aspiring writers?
My advice is to never give up. And write about what you love. Oh, and develop a very thick skin because you’re going to need it. Everything will be judged and nitpicked—your writing, your plot, your characters, your query, your book cover…get used to it. Some of the criticism will be worthy and some of it not. You’ll know what to take in and what to just let roll off.


Who is your favorite author?
Hands down Judith McNaught. She is why I write in the romance genre.


What is your favorite book?
Once and Always by Judith McNaught. I smile just thinking about that story!


What are you currently reading?
Love Will Find A Way by Barbara Freethy.


How do readers find out more about you?
You can visit at the following places; Facebook, Twitter: @ArisWhittier , Pinterest and GoodReadsI love to hear from readers so if you want to shoot me an email: ariswhittier@gmail.com.

Across Eternity was inspired by a dream! I dreamt the entire book one night and when I woke—at about 3 in the morning—I went to my office and immediately began writing—I didn’t want to forget it! This story is unlike my others. It was an emotional and amazing journey writing about Logan and Amber. My greatest hope is that when the reader is finished with the story that it has found a way into their heart and it lingers with them for awhile.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
