Not Since You JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Not Since You by Dulcie Dameron, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Not Since You

Title: Not Since You
Series: Secrets of River Hollow #1
Author: Dulcie Dameron
Publisher: Independently Published
Release Date: May 31, 2022
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Sins and secrets are hard to keep hidden in a small town… 

When Claudia Clark was involved in a tragic accident in high school, it set her on a devastating path toward heartbreak. For the past eight years, she’s carefully guarded her heart. With her business now thriving, she doesn’t have time for any unwanted distractions. She’s learned from her mistakes. But when the biggest one of all comes face to face with her again, she starts to question the belief she’s desperately clung to for so long. 

Dorian Vance can’t get over his past—or the girl that it’s wrapped up in. So when a family emergency brings him back to the small town of River Hollow, he decides it's time to accept the truth and confront the girl he left behind. Unfortunately for him, she’s dead set on making him pay for his sins. 

As sparks start flying and well-meaning townsfolk meddle in their affairs, Dorian and Claudia are forced to resurrect old ghosts that lay buried in a mire of guilt and shame. But as they find themselves in the center of a vengeful scheme, the hope and forgiveness they seek seem impossible to obtain.

Q: What was the inspiration behind Not Since You?

Dulcie: Honestly, SO many things! This book felt like all of my favorite things rolled into one! Romance, faith, a misunderstood “bad boy”, strong family ties, a charming small town, and a fun festival to finish it off.

Q: How long did it take you to write this story?

Dulcie: I wrote the very rough draft of Not Since You in one month. Of course, editing and re-writes took me much longer.

Q: Do you have a favorite quote from this book?

Dulcie: I have many favorites, honestly. It’s too hard to choose just one! But one of my favorite moments was when Prue finds Claudia after she sees Dorian at her shop. It’s where you really get a glimpse into the funny workings of Prue’s mind.

Q: What do you hope readers take away from Not Since You?

Dulcie: I think the biggest thing I’d like for readers to take away from this book is that God doesn’t want you to live with the guilt and shame of your past. We’ve all messed up and done things wrong. But we also serve a God who specializes in second chances. For me, that’s what this book was about. It wasn’t just a second chance for Dorian and Claudia’s love, it was another chance for them both to be redeemed back to a fulfilling Christian life.

Q: Would you share something about yourself that most readers would not know?

Dulcie: Hmm. Most readers probably wouldn’t know that I LOVE being outdoors. If I could be outside all day long, I probably would be. But then, I wouldn’t get much writing done that way. 😊

Q: What are you reading now?

Dulcie: Right now, I’m reading a Christian Suspense story by Tawni Suchy. It’s called Secrets, Lies, and Deadly Ties and you can find it in Kindle Vella.

Q: How many bookcases are in your home?

Dulcie: This is a trick question because we JUST recently moved! In our old home, we had shelves along the wall that my husband built in his study. Now, I only have one, lowly bookcase and boxes FULL of books just waiting for their forever home.

Q: What do you like to do when you are not writing?

Dulcie: I love to spend time with my family and friends. My husband and I are active in ministry, too, so we enjoy spending lots of time serving in our local church.
