Sh’Moore, author of A Lover’s Redemption: The Beginning
Does God forgive sinners who enjoy their sins? Is there forgiveness for the adulteress that indulges in the coveting of her lover? Can a marriage survive after infidelity?
Shamia Kennedy is in love with her husband as much as she is with herself. She knows that he loves her, but she misses the attention he once offered. In her means to occupy her time, she becomes intrigued by a conversation she has in an internet chat room. One that eventually leads to secluded hotel bedrooms!
As the lives of these individuals become more intertwined, how will the families survive the birth of the green eyed child? Those eyes are the elephant in the room.
“A Lover’s Redemption” forces one to ask, is the search for ultimate happiness such a selfish journey that one must compromise morality to obtain it? Could sex ever be so good that Hell is the price you’re willing to pay?
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write “A Lover’s Redemption: The Beginning”?
Sh’Moore: Life. Some of the story is fiction, and some is reality. As part of my self therapy, I wrote. Although the story is fictional and many parts have been flipped and changed, “A Lover’s Redemption” is one of those pieces that was born of real life experiences.
JP: What sets “A Lover’s Redemption: The Beginning” apart from other books in the same genre?
Sh’Moore: The layers of relationships that are represented. While you see into the lives of the Kennedy family, there are TONS of other relationships present – each relevant to the varied lives we all live. The layers of realistic relationships would be the “it” that sets “A Lover’s Redemption” apart.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to “A Lover’s Redemption: The Beginning” getting out to the public?
Sh’Moore: As an author, I am forever learning and never afraid to try a new avenue of exposure for my work. Networking and simply asking for feasible help has proven to me that the public isn’t too very difficult to appeal to.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish “A Lover’s Redemption: The Beginning”?
Sh’Moore: My writing process is simple. I find my quiet space away from all distractions, and I pray. Then the magic happens.
“A Lover’s Redemption” took a long time to publish. Once I got my healing from the writing, I let it alone and walked away. It was finally in answering my mother’s request that I finished the last five or so chapters and started the publishing process. Total time took about 7 years.
JP: What’s next for Sh’Moore?
Sh’Moore: “A Lover’s Redemption” is the first book of the trilogy. So, I have 2 more installments for this family. I also publish under Passion Ink Press, and I have my first anthology due out by the beginning of summer with some WONDERFUL talent!
