Jo Huddleston - Wait for Me - eBook Giveaway!
Good Monday Morning Readers!
Today, Jo Huddleston visits Lagniappe to discuss her latest release, Wait for Me.
Tell us a little about Wait for Me
Can Julie, an only child raised with privilege and groomed for high society, and Robby, a coal miner’s son, escape the binds of their socioeconomic backgrounds? Set in a coal mining community in West Virginia in the 1950s, can their love survive their cultural boundaries?
This is a tragically beautiful love story of a simple yet deep love between two soul mates, Robby and Julie. The American South’s rigid caste system and her mother demand that Julie chooses to marry an ambitious young man from a prominent and suitable family. Julie counters her mother’s stringent social rules with deception and secrets in order to keep Robby in her life. Can the couple break the shackles of polite society and spend their lives together? Will Julie’s mother ever accept Robby?
What Bible verse speaks to you the most?
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Give readers your brand/tagline and share how you came up with it.
Sweet Southern Romances. I’m a born-and-raised U.S. Southerner—I write stories set in the American South and about people who live there.
What author's books do you enjoy reading?
I keep an updated list of my all-time favorite novels because the story stays with me and I love to read books by the author. Here’s my current list (alphabetically by author): Christina Berry-The Familiar Stranger, Cassandra King-Same Sweet Girls, Margaret Mitchell-Gone with the Wind, Francine Rivers-Redeeming love, James Rubart-Rooms.
What is your hope for the readers of your books?
That they will be entertained while reading my stories and that they will learn of God’s love through my characters.
What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
When readers enjoy my book, I hope they will tell others about it and leave a short review why they liked it on the book’s Amazon page. Both are very much appreciated.
What can we expect from you in the future?
I’m working on book 2 in the West Virginia Mountains Series. Don’t have a title yet. I usually get my titles from a scene or chapter while I’m writing the book.
