The Onslaught Of The Real World

C.H. Eryl Author Interview

The Valentine’s Dance follows a woman in charge of planning the dance, which she wants to use to set up her single friends. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

This is book 2 of the Hope Springs Series. The Valentine’s Dance is one of the events that the main character, Darci, is in charge of and she wants to keep the events fun and engaging, but she has to create a magical atmosphere that at least matches what she did for New Year’s with the Masquerade Ball, and it doesn’t come easy. When she finds there to be so many eligible single men in Hope Springs, all she needs to do is get them to agree to be auctioned off for a date at The Valentine’s Dance.

There is a sense of love and innocence throughout the novel. How were you able to capture those feeling and put them into words?

Thank you for that. You know, we are constantly barraged by all aspects that are negative on a daily basis. Reading should be a source of not only entertainment, but a break from the onslaught of the real world. I love that. I write the romance novels because in real life, not everyone has the ‘happily ever after.’ In books, I can create that atmosphere.

There is so much to be said about love in this book. What do you hope your readers take away from your story?

I absolutely love writing in the small town, second chance at romance genre because who in the world wouldn’t want a second chance to find love? I sincerely hope I’ve been able to give people a reason to smile, even if for a brief moment in their day. I hope that they’ve found some of the characters charming and at the end of the book, feel as if they made a couple of new friends.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

The next book is Blackberries and Brandi, book 3 in the Hope Falls Series. It’s available right now in paperback and hardcover. The eBook is being released April 25th, 2022. This story centers on Luke and Brandi, characters that the readers follow from The Valentine’s Dance. This story has romance, mystery and suspense mingled together for a fun read. It was an absolute joy to create.

Following it will be His December Bride, book 4 of the Hope Falls Series. It’s currently on pre-order and will be released by October 2022.

A small-town, second-chance romance novel. Darci thinks the next event for her as the Hope Falls Event Coordinator will be a Valentine’s Dance. Unfortunately, it can’t be a masquerade ball; they did that for New Year’s, but she needs something as intriguing. A thought whirls in her mind. Yes! They could hold a silent auction to win a date to the dance with one of the single men she’ll convince to participate.
It sounds like fun. What could go wrong?
This is book two of the Hope Falls series, following The Reindeer Ranch where Darci and Brian are introduced. In this follow-up book the readers will meet Darci and Brian’s friends, as well as other intriguing townspeople… Some who hold old secrets, and others who thought they’d rather be single, until they’re all brought together for the Valentine’s Dance.
