Guest Post & Giveaway: "Love Travels Forever" by Jaye Frances

I'd like to welcome back Jaye Frances to the blog. She is a frequent visitor and has a new book out called "Love Travels Forever" and I'll let her tell you a little more about it. She is also going to be giving away a Kindle copy of "Love Travels Forever" so make sure to enter.

Thank you, Danielle, for featuring me today with my new release Love Travels Forever. The book is a collection of my favorite short stories and essays, exploring the boundaries of courage, the joy of romance, and the enthusiasm of young love.

“A Love For Summer,” captures the hopeful dreams that reside in a teen-age girl’s imagination, and the insight of maturity when reality deflates the bubble of expectation. Here’s a short excerpt:

Although I didn’t realize it then, I had just received an introduction to the awkward and confusing world of dating, with all its passion and heartache, apprehension and disappointment, and where most beginnings inevitably fade into forgettable endings. Those early summer crushes and puppy loves delivered important lessons and, in affairs of the heart, there is simply no better way to learn.

So what happened to Nick? Did I get another chance to explore the possibilities? I did. Even though I kept my feelings a secret, I continued to nurture my hopeful expectations. Three years later, as a fresh-faced sixteen-year-old, I often daydreamed about our first physical encounter, my over-active imagination placing him on the crest of a perfect wave, the water carrying him within a few yards of where I waited on crystal white sand, ready for him to take me in his arms. All that summer—between my junior and senior year—I dreamed of such a coupling and how I would lie there, perfectly still, as the glow from my body illuminated his hard-chiseled features.

Our eventual union was a far cry from my romanticized illusions, but it brought a much-needed dose of reality to my quixotic and starry-eyed notions. And while I still cherish the brief and never-repeated encounter, not once did I ever imagine Nick—captain of the football team, Thespian’s member, and owner of a midnight blue 1973 Z-28 Camaro—growing up to become a Dolly Madison route driver, destined to spend the next 30 years of his life restocking grocery shelves with Wonder Bread and Hostess Twinkies.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

In Love Travels Forever, Jaye Frances captures the reader’s heart with an inspiring collection of seventeen stories filled with romance and passion, the hopeful innocence of youth, and a love so strong that it transcends the mortality of life. Here are just a few of the people you’ll meet:

Evan and Frankie, a loving couple traveling through life hand-in-hand, are unaware that the shadow of fate is about to tear them apart. Helpless to change their shortened future together, one of them makes a promise—a promise of devotion and courage, honoring a love that surpasses the boundaries of time.

Mark and Janice, the perfect couple with the perfect life, are on the threshold of finally seeing their dreams come true—until an unexpected circumstance changes their lives forever.

Danny, a young soldier fresh out of boot-camp, is desperate to find a way to travel home and marry his sweetheart before being shipped overseas. Stranded in a train station on a three day pass with no hope in sight, Danny meets Wanda, an incredible woman who vows to find a way to bring Danny and his fiance together.

Nora and Georgia are two eight-year-old best friends who share giggles, dolls, and secrets. But when one of them faces sudden danger, the other responds with an unconditional act of love and forges a lifelong bond between them unaffected by fear or prejudice.

So find a quiet spot, get comfy, and grab a box of Kleenex. You’re about to take an unforgettable journey of the heart, to a place where compassion and hope have no limits, and where love continues to travel forever.
