New Romance Novel, Little Reminders of Who I Was, Suggests that Even Angels Need a Little Help Every Now and Then
WordCrafts Press and author Jeff S. Bray are pleased to announce the release of Little Reminders of Who I Was, the highly anticipated sequel to Bray’s contemporary Christian romance novel, Little Reminders of Who I Am.
The second installment of Bray’s Little Reminders series follows Derrick Anders, a college student who works in a south Houston chain bookstore. Between his studies, work, and a recent loss in his family, Derrick has little time for friends—much less a love life—even though Breonna, a coworker with a big smile, seems to have her eyes set on him.
…And then there is Carter.
As revealed in Little Reminders of Who I Am, the first volume in the series, Carter is a heavenly being assigned to Earth duty, and he has been sent to do what he does best; bring two hearts together. But there is something unique about Derrick that Carter did not anticipate; something that brings back his own past and causes him to question his mission, his motives… everything.
This time, maybe Carter is the one who needs to be reminded of who he was… and who he serves.
Continuing in the tradition of such classic “angels among us” stories as It’s a Wonderful Life and Angels in the Outfield, Little Reminders of Who I Was is sure to put a smile on readers’ faces, and keep them turning the pages long into the night.
From the Novel:
Derrick turned to see the familiar tweed coat and hat had not changed. It was the man he was searching for. “Yes sir, I found the book. It has an amazing story.”
“Oh, I do love a good story,” the man began to glow. He stepped toward Derrick. “We all have a story to tell, Derrick. Happy stories, sad stories, true stories, made-up stories, anything and everything. Life isn’t life without a good story. I have a story. You have a story. It’s what makes us who we are. And we need to tell people about our stories. Without telling our stories,” the man gestured to the bookshelf beside him, “we’re just books sitting on a shelf. And do I have a story to tell you…
“Say, are you hungry? There is a sandwich shop not too far from here. Davies Deli. They serve a great sandwich. And it’s Friday. They have a Reuben you need to try. Too bad it’s not Monday though, their meatloaf sandwich is spectacular.
“I’m sorry, where are my manners. The name is Carter.”
“Life is constantly going on around us, and we take it for granted,” Bray muses. “But we all have everyday moments in our lives that are special. I am afraid that most of us let life pass us by without seeing how special life’s little moments really are. Little Reminders of Who I Was is about getting a second chance to see what those small moments mean. And this time around it’s not just the humans who are impacted.
“I want to encourage my readers to live in the moment and make every second count,” Bray continues, “and I hope this book will be the spark, the little reminder, for folks to embrace those little things now and not wait for a second chance that might never come.”
