Finding Jackson by Anne Holster 💕 Guest Post, Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Vintage New Adult Romance)



It's 1977 - Star Wars is breaking records at the box office, Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run tour is taking the country by storm, and born-and-bred Jersey girl Annalise Keller has fallen in love for the first and last time. Hot and charismatic with dreams of making it as a rock star, Keith "Ace" Foxx is everything a teenage girl dreams of. He falls as hard for Anna as she does for him and the two decide to run off to California in search of his big break. Fate has other plans though, and several years and three kids later, Ace has traded in his guitar for a job at the local post office and Anna has become a symbol of all he has given up. Ace spends most nights at the local bar, trying to drink away his anger and resentment.

Flash forward a decade, and their youngest child, Jackson, is headed nowhere fast. In a life filled with meaningless jobs and too much partying, music is his only true escape from the pain of a childhood that abruptly ended one rainy night. The accident had destroyed his family and left him with a slew of unanswered questions.

Everything changes the night Jackson meets Leah. Shy and reserved, she doesn't smoke and barely drinks; she certainly doesn't put out. Not exactly the girl from the Bon Jovi videos he watched as a kid. Yet, before he knows it, she has become his world.

Then, just when it looks like his dreams might come true, betrayal and loss once again threaten everything he holds dear. As Jackson struggles to keep his world from spinning out of control, he knows one thing for sure, the choices he makes now will either be the start of a whole new life, or it just might be the end of him.


What is your writing process?

I’m not that complicated so, in turn, my writing process is pretty simple. I usually start out writing on my laptop in the evening and most nights I keep going until I run out of ideas. On some nights when the ideas are flowing, I could literally write for hours, but then there are those nights when I seem to develop a bad case of writer’s block and on those nights, I just turn in early. I always keep a pen and pad on my nightstand in case an idea comes to me out of the blue during the night – believe it or not, this happens quite often. Of course, there have been many a morning when I had quite a hard time deciphering what I’d written the night before.
I also consider myself to be an avid, conscientious reader which I think is important because it allows you to learn from the experts in terms of storyline, character development and realistic dialogue. The more you read, the more you learn and it teaches you what you can get away with as an author and what you can’t. I learned just as much from books I didn’t like as those I did.
I’ve so far stuck with writing within the new adult genre although I haven’t ruled out writing in another genre at some point in the future – mystery, perhaps? New adult is what I mainly read, though, and you know what they say – write what you love to read!



It was Halloween the first time I laid eyes on him. I’ll never forget it because Halloween had always been my favorite holiday, maybe because for some reason I was allowed to run wild. Things I’d never get away with were suddenly okay to do on Halloween. For instance, staying out after dark or eating candy before dinner, dressing inappropriately, and by inappropriately, I mean going out without a coat when the weather dipped below fifty degrees. Things you think are cool when you’re ten years old, which was how old I was that year. Most people may not clearly remember their tenth Halloween, but I do and with very good reason, because it was the day I fell in love. You might think it crazy for a fifth grader to arrive home after a night of trick-or-treating and announce that she’s in love and you probably wouldn’t be the only one, but that’s exactly what I did – and I was totally serious.

It was dusk, and the air was electric with excitement. It had been a lucrative afternoon and my three friends and I had split up just long enough to empty our bags of candy, grab something to eat, then regroup in an hour to hit the other side of town. Not wanting to waste any time I decided to cut through the woods by my house, something I didn’t usually do with darkness approaching. It was a fateful decision that would end up altering the course of my life.

    1. I was inspired to write a story about 'love at first sight' when the object of affection isn't your typical classically handsome hero, but instead a regular guy (in this case a struggling musician) without much money and who's had a hard knock life. After I had that first scene written it just grew from there. Great question Kim!
