IR Approved Author H.L. Cherryholmes Tells All About His Book

Overmorrow received a 4+ star review, making it an IndieReader Approved title.

Following find an interview with author H.L. Cherryholmes.

What is the name of the book and when was it published?

Overmorrow. 10/20/23

What’s the book’s first line?

“Here’s the thing, Evan.”

What’s the book about? Give us the “pitch”.

At the rehab facility it was suggested that Meredith’s recovery may have stalled because she’s clinging to her past, so she decides to sneak off to try and find answers. She least expects to find herself escaping a freak summer snowstorm by sheltering in a freeway-side bar that she could have sworn wasn’t previously there, but that’s where the story kicks off. Meredith’s colorful past gradually begins to be revealed as she is joined by two other travelers with equally compelling tales. 

What inspired you to write the book? A particular person? An event?

One of my earlier novels, Come Back for Me, tells the story of three brothers who were separated as young children but brought together later in life by a contact from  a mysterious sister who they unite to try and locate. I felt it was time for the mysterious sister’s story, which stands on its own whether or not readers are familiar with the prior story.

What’s the main reason someone should really read this book?

Most people can probably relate to the fact that as we get older and maybe more self-aware, we accept that only we ourselves can course-correct the road we are on, and that involves taking honest accountability for our actions. This book really goes in hard on that concept, but with quite a bit of mystery and other-worldly elements thrown in.


What’s the most distinctive thing about the main character?  Who-real or fictional-would you say the character reminds you of?

Meredith has lived through more than her share of stressful situations and, until recently, hasn’t engaged the healthiest coping mechanisms. With help, she’s beginning to learn that she doesn’t need to avoid her past by burying it. Yet she’s willing to risk her sobriety and all that she’s accomplished while getting clean to try and find the siblings she was taken from years ago. I think Meredith’s mixture of grit, humor, and street smarts make her someone most of us would end up enjoying chatting with if we sat beside her at a bar.

To fellow indie authors, I’d like to say there are a great many advantages to going the indie route and you should free yourself to explore them. For me, though this is my fourteenth book, Overmorrow both stands alone with its singular focus on a first-person narrative, which I’ve not done before, as well as builds an elemental bridge to my other books. Some time back I started to have a great time building a unique universe in which all of my tales live – occasionally going back to make minor tweaks in previously released novels as the connections become more apparent to me. That would be something that is not possible to do outside of the indie world.
