Thursday Threesomes


Okay, yes. I cheated, but I really wanted to introduce you to this gentleman.

A fellow writer who wrote a screenplay then spent more hours in front of his computer to make it a novel. He had a story to tell, and he wasn't about to let logistics stand in his way.



Three things about Grand Central Publishing author

JEFF RIVERA




Tell us the basic storyline of Forever My Lady?

It's my first novel and I really wrote this from my heart. It tells the story of a teenager who feels like he has absolutely no body in the world until he mets a girl named Jennifer who is the one person who not only loves him just the way he is but promises never to leave his side. Then, one thing leads to another, Dio ends up in prison boot camp and promises her he'll marry her when he gets out. He's making all these changes in his life for her then he finds out from a friend that she has plans to marry someone else.

Why were you so passionate about telling that story in particular?

I felt it was a story that needed to be told, not one we see every day and it was one that I could relate to so I knew other people had to be able to relate to also.

Forever My Lady has been getting quite a bit of buzz even when it was self-published. Did you have any idea it would be so well-received?

No, I was scared that no body would like it actually but when I started getting great reviews from regular people then I knew it had struck a chord. Then the reviews from the pros came in and then that cemented things for me. I think as a writer you can feel a little insecure sometimes about whether people are "getting you" and it's nice to know when people are.
