Reviews for One More Tomorrow
"ONE MORE TOMORROW is a wonderful vampire romance. S.A. Martin has done a truly outstanding job of showing the tormented life of a vampire through her character of Galan. I also love the abilities she has bestowed on her vampires, they can enter any door without being invited, they can transport themselves anywhere, to any time period in which they lived and they have amazing strength. The characters are realistically portrayed, the story line is enthralling and the love between the two characters gives us all hope of a soul mate. I highly recommend ONE MORE TOMORROW to all lovers of romance."
"Vampire romance fans will not want to miss the delightful ONE MORE TOMORROW, a fine tale starring two star-crossed lovers and the evil that shadows their every step. Galen is an admirable soul who drinks blood from only criminals while Stevie is a courageous person wondering if she truly loves the vampire. Although Moloch seems too intelligent and malevolent not to recognize the essential goodness of his apprentice (one can soundly counter argue that it goes against his blood to believe a vampire would love instead of hunt a human), readers will want more tales like this strong love story."
"One of my favorite themes is the enduring power of love beyond time. As such, I eagerly took up ONE MORE TOMORROW and instantly fell in love. It is a deeply satisfying story that resonates on many levels, as well as a surprisingly sweet romance set within the oftentimes-brutal world of vampirism. While Stevie was a fun character, I connected most deeply with Galan. I felt his tormented hopes and fractured sacrifices as though they were my own. Each time Galan was forced to reject his love, his heart, his dreams, I would wail my distress. And yet, each time dear, dedicated, and eternally loving Galan would return to Stevie, drawn to the love of his life like the moth to the flame. It's an enchanting read."
"An enchanting story with the charm of a fairy tale and an ending that's pure gold."

An Interview with Shirley Martin
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Shirley, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is One More Tomorrow. Where did you get the idea for this moving love story?
SM: First, Holly, thank you for doing this interview with me. As for One More Tomorrow the idea actually just popped out of my head. I wondered what it would be like for a vampire to fall in love with a mortal woman.
HH:What do you like best about Stevie and why will readers relate to her?
SM: The heroine, Stevie, is a spunky gal, estranged from her family and wishing she could reconcile with her father. She helps the homeless in downtown Miami.
HH: What do you like best about Galen and why will readers love him?
SM: Galan is dashing and gallant, very much a gentleman. He is immediately attracted to the heroine, Stevie, and sees in her a resemblance to a woman he loved centuries ago. Readers will love his old world charm.
HH: What makes your story stand out in a sea of vampire romances?
SM: This vampire romance deals with a historical perspective, showing when Galan was first changed against his will. Unlike other male vampires who delight in their vampirism, he wishes to regain mortality, so that he can love Stevie as he wants to love her.
HH: What was your favorite part of writing this emotionally-charged tale?
SM: At first, Stevie doesn't know that Galan is a vampire. When she finally realizes what he is, the realization of his vampirism is at odds with her love for him. This is my favorite part of One More Tomorrow -- Stevie's conflict.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
SM: If anyone checks my website, they will see that I have a variety of genres--historical romances, paranormal romances and fantasy romance novels and novellas. www.shirleymartinauthor.com You can also check my books at www.amazon.com.

SM: At www.amazon.com Or they can order from http://bookswelove.net Also, they can order from my site.
HH:What would we find in your to-be-read pile?

HH: What in person or online appearances will you be making this year?
SM: None so far, but whenever I make the NY Times best-seller list, you'll hear from me!
HH: When you're not reading or promoting you like to __________?
