So hello, my name is Eryn LaPlant. Last year I had the privilege of pursuing my dream of being a full-time author and mother. Currently, I have three completed stories. Two are still being edited and one is finished and ready to go. That book is entitled, The Blue Lute. In the last year I have been actively trying to catch the attention of literary agents around the country to read my book. I have had some good leads but nothing that I can formally say have wanted to give it a go. But I am determined that this WILL happen. I can feel it in my bones that this is what I was meant to do.
Maybe it’s my family given talent of artistry and writing that has been passed down through many generation: my grandfather, my mother, my sisters – they are all writers. Or maybe it’s the Irish storytelling in my blood, but I love creating and writing stories. When I was at meaningless jobs all I could think of was that I’m wasting my time! There I was just sitting at a desk working for some dumb company where I made absolutely no difference and could never be appreciated for the talents that had. I hating working those places, but I didn’t hate working. I wanted to be home so I could do the things I loved for a job and not for a hobby.
Anyhow, back to the books. The Blue Lute is probably my favorite story that has come to me. I love it not only because it’s a fun story, but it combines all or the things that I love: history, music, time travel, romance, and most importantly the 1920s. Here’s my little blurb of its plot: Think you have life figured out? Brandon Crowley did until the night of August 31, 1928. Fleeing into a dark alley, after being chased by Nick Abruzzio’s thugs, the man holding his fiancée, Christine Hutton, captive; Brandon emerges 70 years later in modern-day New York City. With his friends long gone, and nowhere to turn, Brandon is stranded in an unfamiliar time.
He is at a dead-end until he meets Lilly, a soulful graduate student at New York University, majoring in history, two years later. She sees Brandon as a mysterious stranger obsessed with the past. Only to Brandon, it’s his present and Lilly is soon caught up in a decades-old mystery they must solve. Through twists and turns they find out that the truth was a far cry from what Brandon thought his life was like in 1928, instead it was a vicious lie created by the one he loved the most.
Through this blog I would love to tell you about me and about the stories I’ve come up with as well as the origins of the ones I’ve already written. I might even throw a few fascinating history lessons in there too! 🙂 Stay tuned tomorrow for more!! Thanks for reading.
