Maybe Tomorrow


Maybe Tomorrow
by Erin Cawood

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Women's Fiction

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Does a heart ever really heal from its first break?

On an unseasonably hot night in late September, Dr. Keon McGowan is called away from a family gathering to a hospital emergency. Amongst his patients that night is a blast from his past he’d rather forget. He’ll certainly never forgive butterfly hunter Darcia Davenport for leaving him alone as a single father while she chased butterflies through the Amazon rainforest.

Coming face to face with the woman who broke his heart after all this time, Keon realises that he has never fully healed from it. But any chance of finding closure is ripped away when Darcy chooses to end treatment and live her final weeks without regret. Can Keon let her go? Or will he fight for the tomorrow they might never have? Maybe Tomorrow is an emotional journey of love caught between fate and destiny.

EXCERPT


Vibrations shot Dr. Keon McGowan’s hip as he placed a sterile gauze pad against the head of the frightened teenager sitting in cubicle nine. “I think there’s more blood than damage,” he reassured the youngster with a warm smile. Although the fifteen-year-old would need stitches, he’d been lucky on all accounts. Keon looked up at the boy’s parents and continued. “I’d still like a couple of scans. It's routine with head injuries, and it's likely the on-call neurologist will want to keep him overnight for observation just to be on the safe side.”

Keon gave them a nod as he removed his latex gloves, tossed them in the medical waste bin, and washed his hands. He didn’t want to cut their time short, but as the head of London’s largest trauma centre, Keon was acutely aware there were too many patients still awaiting first assessments, and there wasn’t a single cubicle free in the accident and emergency treatment area. He fielded calls between treating patients, unable to move more than ten feet without someone calling his name. It was all in a day’s work, except today, things were more hectic than usual, due to a massive traffic accident involving almost 200 people less than three hours ago.

“I’ll arrange for a porter to come as soon as possible,” Keon promised the parents of the fifteen-year-old at the end of the consultation. “But I’m sure you can appreciate they’re stacked out at the moment, as is the imaging department. I’m sorry it’s going to be a bit of a wait.”

They nodded, and Keon swiftly left the cubicle as his mobile vibrated against his hip again. Quickly, he glanced at the name on the screen. He wouldn’t normally take a personal call in the middle of a crisis like this, but this caller resided on the other side of the world. “I’m sorry, Sarah, but I can’t talk now.”

“Oh, hello, Sarah. How are you? I’m fine, Keon, thank you for asking.” Her sarcasm was not missed, but he was just too busy to acknowledge it. “But I thought I’d make this really important phone call to remind you the doctors at Mount Cook are still waiting for your call.”

“I’m sorry, but I’ve got seventy-three people who were in an RTA three hours ago. I can’t talk about this now.” He didn’t mean to be short, but the board had too many patients for his liking, and his staff grew weary. He didn’t need Sarah on his back right now. He returned to the nurses’ station. “Heather? Can you arrange for the patient in cubicle nine to have a CT scan and page neurology, please?”

A Word From the Author:

1.What's the best and worst part of being an author?

The best part of being an author is getting feedback from readers. Whenever I get an email, or a post on Facebook, or a tweet, I go all fangirl, do a happy dance at my desk, and get some very strange looks from the people I work with. But hearing from readers is definitely the most awesome thing about being an author.

The worst part…? I don’t know, if I had to pick something, I’d say it’s the administration side of it. I’d happily pay someone else to handle the repetitive tasks such as submitting to promotion sites. Researching new site s

2.Which book of yours is your favorite? Why

I guess here I’m supposed to say Maybe Tomorrow, right? And its by far the best book I’ve ever written?
But honestly, that’s like asking a mother to choose between her children. I love Faith from Tainted Love, she’s so strong and goes through so much heartache, as she lives through a marriage that slowly deteriorates over a number of years and she suffers physically, mentally, emotionally, sexually, and financially, as she loses her husband to his rage. Julia from Blurred Lines, for all her faults, really comes into her own, by the end of Crossing Lines. And Darryl, who’s the main character of Crossing Lines finally understands what his sister, Faith, meant when she told him to live and love and be loved the way he deserves. But Keon and Darcy from Maybe Tomorrow, they’re always going to have a place in my heart because they go through so much heartache before they find their happy ever after. So much that I have a butterfly tattoo.

3.What are your favorite authors in the genre that you write?

In terms of romance, I love to read anything by Amy Andrews. When it comes to Women’s Fiction I seem to go through phases. I enjoyed Marian Keyes for a while, then Sophie Kinsella/Madeline Wickham. I don’t tend to have favourite authors, I tend to read the blurb and choose whether to buy.

4.Which of your characters is most like you?


I don’t think any of my characters are like me. But they all seem to have something in common; they’re all quite strong willed and determined.
