Hello Ever After episode 1 (I wrote it!)

July 2, 2020 - - 1 Comment


In my book What Kind of Day, one of my main characters, Naya, works in tourism, has her own travel business, although there is a hint of what could be a future career for her beyond the business. In this episode of #HelloEverAfter that I wrote, I give an update on that. Naya’s business has closed, the job offer isn’t happening, and the possible career…needs to be rethought.

This project was about writing our characters in quarantine, and I could have (was really tempted to) use characters whose lives weren’t directly affected. That would have been the happier, easier. But the senator’s staffer and tourism entrepreneur had more to say.

So much to say that I wrote it all down in mere hours, and I think the other #RomanceClass authors who wrote #HelloEverAfter episodes would say the same. Sometimes anger and frustration can lead to this. We can still turn it into romance and hope. (Well, we try.)

Episode 2 of Hello, Ever After is “We Will Be Okay” by Celestine Trinidad. It goes up on Friday, July 3, at 7 PM at
