Blog Tour: Guest Post – Hereafter by Tara Hudson

Welcome to Author Tara Hudson.


Born and raised in Oklahoma, Tara Hudson graduated with a degree in law, mostly because she believed all the horror stories about English majors and their careers in the food-service industry. Luckily, she soon remembered how much she loved telling ghost stories, particularly to her girlfriends who liked visiting abandoned cemeteries as much as she did. Tara currently lives in Oklahoma with her husband, son, and a menagerie of ill-behaved pets.

Guest Post: When I’m Not Writing:

When I’m not writing (which is rare, since we’re on a pretty intense schedule for the HEREAFTER Trilogy), I’m doing one of the following: feeding my kid; changing my kid; watching my kid as he demands the attention of all who pass him by. Notice a theme, here? 🙂

You see, I got my book deal when I was about 3 months pregnant with my first child, and I had my son less than two months after finishing the final rewrites on HEREAFTER. So I save every spare moment I have for my writing!

However, before that Blessed Event (and hopefully again, some day soon), I loved to read voraciously, collect more music that I could possibly listen to in this lifetime, and rescue mangy, surly animals with behavior problems. What can I say? I have a soft spot for the outcasts of the animal kingdom. And who knows? Maybe, when my kid is old enough to join me, I’ll add hang-gliding to the list….

Hereafter by Tara Hudson:

Can there truly be love after death?

Drifting in the dark waters of a mysterious river, the only thing Amelia knows for sure is that she’s dead. With no recollection of her past life—or her actual death—she’s trapped alone in a nightmarish existence. All of this changes when she tries to rescue a boy, Joshua, from drowning in her river. As a ghost, she can do nothing but will him to live. Yet in an unforgettable moment of connection, she helps him survive.

Amelia and Joshua grow ever closer as they begin to uncover the strange circumstances of her death and the secrets of the dark river that held her captive for so long. But even while they struggle to keep their bond hidden from the living world, a frightening spirit named Eli is doing everything in his power to destroy their newfound happiness and drag Amelia back into the ghost world . . . forever.

Thrilling and evocative, with moments of pure pleasure, Hereafter is a sensation you won’t want to miss.
