Welcome to the book tour for The Last Chapter by Michelle Alstead! Today she took a little bit of time out of her busy schedule to tell us a little bit more about her new book. Please enjoy and be sure to follow the rest of the tour. I have a review coming up next week over at Andi’s Book Reviews!
What kind of research did you have to do for this book?
This book is based on my own life experiences.
Which character was your favorite to write?
Ethan was my favorite character because I was able to be creative.
To which character did you relate the most?
Emma is really based on my life experiences and shares a lot of my qualities.
What was one of your favorite scenes?
My favorite scene is where Ethan confronts the past.
Will we see these characters again?
Yes, you will see Ethan again. He will turn up in a later novel and might bring Emma with him. He has a production company with Jag Winchester (One Last Try) who is featured in The First Sunset and should get his own book later in the series.
What do you hope people will get out of your book? How do you make yourself stand out in this genre?
I really hope to educate people about autism. My worst experiences as a parent have been dealing with people who lack understanding and therefore don’t show compassion for my son’s situation.
Emma Barton is drowning. A single mother of a son with a genius-level IQ and Autism, she’s given up on love to focus on the child who needs her. Her writing aspirations—the only dream she hasn’t abandoned—withers as her latest novel bombs, and she’s dropped by her publisher.
Ethan Wise, an A-list actor, wants an Oscar, but he’d settle for being something other than a romantic comedy lead or a beefcake superhero. Discovering Emma’s novel happened by chance, but it could also be his opportunity to finally become a serious actor.
When Ethan seeks Emma out to buy the movie rights to her novel, they fall so passionately in love their lives are turned upside down.
Emma wants to be with Ethan, but there’s her son to consider and the secrets she’s kept to protect him. She’ll do anything to keep her little boy’s world safe and happy.
She’d even give up the love of her life.
