Why I Wrote the Novel Falling for Chloe

27 Aug

Falling for Chloe is set to launch on September 2nd, and I’m excited. Here’s a brief description of the story:

A total life do-over, that’s what Jake needs; a chance to unmake his past mistakes. Because in his zeal to fulfill his beloved dream of wealth and fame, Jake lost Chloe, the one he loved above all else.
First he betrayed her. Then came the drugs. And in the real world, opportunities to undo things like that just don’t happen.
Or do they? Could a paparazzi-induced traffic accident actually provide an opportunity for Jake to restore his ruined life? Set against the glitzy backdrop of the recording business, Falling for Chloe
 tells the story of a young man’s dream to restore the dream he lived before his dreams came true.

I have a long-time friend who left her husband for no better reason than she felt the desire to explore greener pastures. She and her husband had always been good to one another, but she became haunted by a nagging feeling that she was missing out on the good life.

So she left him. Partied it up. And found out the good life wasn’t all that great. But now it’s too late for her to go back, because he’s with somebody else.

This is a little like Jake’s story in Falling for Chloe. He leaves his girl Chloe to follow his dream of fame, and then, wonder of wonders, winds up actually catching it – fame, that is. But afterward he learns that a life of celebrity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. There’s the paparazzi, and the constant pressure, and the never having any time for yourself, and the temptation, and the drugs. Soon Jake’s only real dream is to get back to the dream he left behind, his true love Chloe, whom he betrayed.

But despite appearances, Falling for Chloe isn’t really a sad story; it’s more of a Nicholas Sparks kind of thing. Bittersweet. But it’s not only that, it’s also humorous, fast-moving, and inspirational. And as far as the ending goes, well, it contains surprises I know you’re going to love.

So ultimately, I wrote this story to help those of us who live in envy of others. I want them to experience gratitude; an appreciation for their own lives. Because the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence. In fact most times it just has different weeds.

Hope you enjoy it!

    David, I really like how you worded this: So ultimately, I wrote this story to help those of us who live in envy of others. I want them to experience gratitude; an appreciation of their own lives. Because the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence. In fact most times it just has different weeds. #averygoodread!

    I like your comments about being happy and finding joy by allowing the Holy Spirit to give you that joy. If Jesus comes and makes His home in our hearts and gives us the Holy Spirit then that means that we have the fruits of the Spirit available to us. Ask and ye shall receive. Easy to say harder to accept and put into practice. That’s when we need to Be Still and Know that He is God. Deborah Bost
