Welcome to the blog tour & giveaway for One December by Kyle Hunter, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

one december Title: One December  
Author: Kyle Hunter
Publisher: Monceau Publishing  
Release Date: February 10, 2018  
Genre: Christian Fiction, Contemporary Romance

Nikki has loved Mike for as long as she can remember (as early as age seven!) Mike has his own past hurts to resolve, having lost both parents in an accident when he was fourteen. He’s tried to escape those painful memories by leaving New York and starting a new life on the West Coast. New facts indicate, years later, that his parents’ deaths might not have been an accident.

At Christmas Mike comes back to New York for the first time in three years. He and Nikki rekindle the friendship they had as children and share their newfound faith. Under a Christmas moon romantic sparks fly . . . but their mutual attraction takes an unexpected detour.

Nikki is devastated, believing her one chance for a relationship with Mike is over. She impulsively takes a one-year teaching opportunity in Paris, so that she can face her own fears and get over Mike.

If Mike and Nikki run away, how can they find each other again?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

kyle hunter

I love to read and write stories about strong women who still have flaws, but are ready to pursue their dreams, even if it takes them out of their comfort zone . . . or their country.

I write inspirational romance novels and women's fiction with a twist: My characters sometimes go places. This led me to create the Love on the Move collection of novels. Readers can take a trip with them and experience their journeys. They can see how the characters' lives unfold as they make decisions to trust God (or not) in their next steps, learning about themselves and their faith, and finding love along the way!

I currently live in North Carolina but spent over a decade in France (where some of my books take place.) I also write non-fiction and teach French. In my free time, I enjoy doing pottery and salsa dancing.

AUTHOR INTERVIEW


Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I wrote my first fictional story at the age of ten, about a frog and a turtle who were best friends. I’ve wanted to write fiction ever since then, though it took me a while to actually do it. I lived in France in a ministry role for 13 years, so got to know the culture and country well. Several, but not all, of my stories take place there. I sometimes say it’s my second home. I returned to the US about five years ago and now live in North Carolina.
I also write non-fiction through a travel blog about, you guessed it, France! It’s called Oliver’s France (named after my cat, Oliver, whose name I took as a pen name for my non-fiction.) I love traveling, especially in Europe, and love to write stories that take characters to other places.
Despite my name, I am female. It’s been an interesting name to have all these years!
What do you do besides writing?

I also teach French to adults in a variety of locations, community college, retirement centers, and privately. For fun I like to do pottery and salsa dancing.

Do you have images you can share that come close to how you picture your characters? Do you like to find visual inspiration for your characters before or during your writing process?

The images I had were mostly in my head, and the graphic designer who did the cover for the book found images very consistent with what I had imagined! I do sometimes try to find photos that match what I’m thinking, but I don’t always succeed in finding a good match. It does help, however, to have a photo, but I’m not systematic about this.

What are some songs that you listened to or inspired you while writing your book?
Some authors have a playlist or specific songs they use for inspiration. My best inspiration is silence and maybe a cup of tea. I concentrate best if there is not too much background noise, and music with lyrics does distract me.
What message would you like readers to ultimately take away from the book?

There are different messages a reader could take away from One December, depending on his or her personal journey. The book speaks about God’s timing and our readiness for what He might have planned for us, and how we might need to grow (and trust Him) before receiving it. There is also a theme of dependence on people versus dependence on God. These are questions we all have to apply to various situations in our lives as we grow.
