Book Tour - When I Remember Love by Trish Silver

Trish Silver is my guest author today.  She has written romance novel with a lot of originality,  When I Remember Love.  Please give Trish a warm welcome as she guest blogs today.  Welcome Trish.

Bio: I was born and raised in Whitefish Bay, WI. I went to college at the University of Cincinnati. I moved to Los Angeles in the turbulent 1960's and met my husband Ed. We have been happily married for 41 years and have two sons, Matthew and David. We also have two grandchildren, Jack and Sarah.
 
Book Info: When I Remember Love is my first book. It is a contemporary romance novel about a rock superstar, Aidan, who realized fame by winning an American Idol type of television reality competition. He falls in love at first sight with the beautiful Jenna and together they navigate through the rocky road fame presented them. You can learn all about it on my website: http://trishsilver.com. It can be purchased on my site, Amazon.com, and BarnesandNoble.com, and SmashWords.com. There is a Kindle version.
Who would have thought that I would ever write a romance novel? I am a big fan of American Idol and after watching the show one night, my story unfolded in a dream. It was like watching a movie; at that moment, I knew that someday my book would become a film. I could see the look on the face of my handsome pop star, Aidan, as he saw his beautiful Jenna for the first time. Jenna, star struck whispered in my ear," He's the one!" As the story came to me vividly scene by scene, I became a fan of my characters.
Personally, I wanted to help Jenna build Jenna's House, a home for the homeless. Also, I wanted my characters to overcome the many obstacles that sudden fame bestowed upon them. It's not like the usual romance novel; I took a chance and wrote outside the box. It was my intention that my readers look upon married love in its purest form without cheating or abuse of any kind. 

I wanted my readers to hear the music that Aidan sang to his audience and to Jenna and was lucky enough to become part of a brilliant songwriting team. You may hear it on my website: http://trishsilver.com. And you can get a preview of the story by watching the book trailer video on my site and hear one of our original songs sung in the background too. If you like a good love story like I do, you will adore this book. 

I was born and raised in Whitefish Bay, WI. I went to college at the University Of Cincinnati, School Of Journalism. I moved to Los Angeles in the turbulent 1960's and met my husband Ed. We have been happily married for many years and have two sons, Matthew and David and a wonderful daughter-in-law Kathy. We also have two beautiful grandchildren, Sarah and Jack. I always dabbled in writing and was told that I had a gift. I finally found my passion in writing my debut novel, "When I Remember Love." I'm in the midst of writing a sequel, "Price Of Love." and a children's book. Life has been good to me.

 
I'd like to share this excerpt from my book, “When I Remember Love.” It's long, but I believe worth the read. My songwriting team wrote the beautiful song that fits appropriately into the storyline. I hope you enjoy Jenna and Aidan's love story as much as I took pleasure in writing it. Trish Silver
 
Dinner was delicious. They whispered in each other's ears, entwined their arms, exchanged flirtatious glances and laughter, and looked like a couple who had just made love. 

After dinner, for entertainment, there was a pianist. Aidan was in the corner of the living room speaking to Alex about the tour. Harry and his significant other, Paul, were still seated at the dining room table where they were engaged in a heated conversation. Rita and Jenna leisurely walked hand in hand and sat down on the sofa next to the piano. 

Alan Tate introduced himself to Jenna and Rita before he began to play. Alan was an average-looking, middle-aged man who wore glasses and was balding. He tried not to stare, but he couldn't help himself. He couldn't believe how beautiful Jenna was in person. He had seen her on television and in magazines with Aidan. He had thought then that she was very pretty. In person, however, her beauty was equally flawless, and to add to that, she seemed very genuine and sweet. Alan had trouble concentrating on his music after seeing this gorgeous goddess, but he had promised his girlfriend Judy Dee (who was a devoted Aidan Price fan) that he would play the song that they had created together. When he started to play “First, Last, and Always,” Aidan strolled over to the piano to follow the melody. He sat down next to his wife and smiled at her as he reached for her hand and brought it to his lips for a quick kiss. 

After Alan finished playing, Aidan let go of Jenna's hand, stood up, and applauded. Jenna introduced Alan to Aidan. Aidan quickly shook his hand. 

“What a beautiful song,” Aidan said. “Do you have lyrics for it?” 

Alan nodded yes and took a folded piece of paper out of his back pants pocket. 

Aidan swiftly glanced at the words and asked Alan a little about the song. Alan told Aidan that it was a love song and that his lady had written the lyrics for his music. The song was about a man who wanted his wife to be a virgin before they got married and to be forever loyal to him. Aidan glanced at Jenna, raised his eyebrows, and winked. 

“Can I sing the lyrics while you play the melody?” 

Alan excitedly said that he would be honored to accompany Aidan. Alan went over the lyrics with him to familiarize Aidan with the song. Aidan started singing with his beautiful melodious voice: 

Take my heart,
It was yours,
From the start,
Forever more.
It's you I'm first and last and always thinking of.
Forever, first, and last you'll always be my love.
It doesn't matter how or why or where I've lived before.
My life began with you.
And every day I'm thankful for this time we share.
The thought of losing you is more than I can bear.
Please tell me that I am the one and only one for you,
First, last, and always, too.
Now that we have found each other,
We are making every day
Memories to last a lifetime,
To lovingly replay when we're old and gray
And now our souls have joined together,
All our dreams are coming true.
Blessings that I first discovered
The day that I met you.
I knew that
I've never loved another
How can I love another?
It's you I'm first and last and always thinking of.
Forever, first, and last you'll always be my love.
It doesn't matter how or why or where I've lived before.
My life began with you.
And every day I'm thankful for this time we share.
The thought of losing you is more than I can bear.
Please tell me that I am the one and only one for you
First, last, and always, too.
You are my first and last and always and forever love.
Please tell me I'm yours, too.
 
After Aidan belted out the beautiful ballad, everyone in the room stood up and gave him a standing ovation. Jenna had tears in her eyes. She knew that this song had been written about their love.
