Traci L. Slatton - The Love of my (other) Life - Blog Tour Stop

Today, we welcome Traci L. Slatton and her novel

The Love Of My (Other) Life.

From the blurb:
The latest offering from critically acclaimed author and Yale and Columbia graduate Traci L. Slatton, The Love Of My (Other) Life follows the beguiling and uncompromising Tessa Barnum, a 30-something would-be painter struggling to find her rightful place in the city that never sleeps: the ever-bustling, always-magical backdrop of New York City.

Frustrated by a world that champions meaningless post-modernism and money over truth, beauty and transcendence, Tessa is about to be evicted, too insecure in her own talent to let her Turner-esque landscapes leave her closet, and emotionally exhausted by a recent divorce. When she is suddenly faced with Brian Tennyson behind every corner – a disheveled yet devilishly handsome man who, out of virtually nowhere, claims to not only be a Yale physics professor who has uncovered a gap in the time-space continuum, but also her husband in an alternate universe (!) – Tessa finds herself on a rollercoaster ride the likes of which she never in her wildest dreams imagined she would have to be prepared for.

A touching and immersive portrait of a young woman reconciling her passions, convictions and realities with an impossible love story unfolding around her, The Love Of My (Other) Life is a surprising, funny and engrossing addition to any romance lover’s bookshelf, digital or otherwise.

A little Q&A:

Q: What’s the deal with Brian at Yale and Brian in NYC?

A: We get to see Brian Tennyson in a few chapters set in his universe. Chapters 2, 4, 6, 8, 11, 15 & 27 take place in a world where the same choices have been faced, but different decisions were made…. The rest of the novel shows Brian here in our world.

Q: What's Tessa’s first impression of Brian?

A: That he’s a scruffy homeless man, but not bad looking, with a smile on his face. And that she should be more creeped out by him than she is.... Q: How long does Brian have to see Tessa and convince her that they’re married in his universe?

A: 5 days, 4 hours, and 22 minutes. Not a second more. There's slime involved.

Q: What’s special about Brian?

A: Absotively, posilutely a lot! He’s a big-hearted physics genius who builds a device for traveling into parallel worlds. But he’s terrible at cooking, singing, and performing magic. He’s also a hugger. And a devoted husband.

Q: What’s Tessa’s story?

A: She’s a talented painter who’s broke, homeless, divorced, and the hapless star of an art porn video. She’s got to reach inside herself and find her own strength.

Q: Who’s hotter, Brian from the other universe, or Brian from ours?

A: That’s the personal choice of every reader!
