I had the honour of sitting down with Whispering Stories blog this week and doing an interview where I talk about my recently released book, "Where I'm Home," my writing process, my inspiration behind the title, and so much more!
To read my interview, click here
"Where I'm Home" is now available on Amazon:
It's been three years since Aoife O'Reilly decided to leave her life - and her love, Michael Flanagan - behind in Ballyclara for a promising career in New York. With a new career and a new man in her life, Aoife is seemingly at peace with her choice. However, when a phone call comes to let her know someone close to her has passed away, Aoife finds herself rushing back to Ireland. Confronted by all the ghosts she thought she put in her past, Aoife now finds herself questioning her decisions and wondering where her home really is.
Are you ready for some exciting news?
Here it is: the long-awaited sequel to "All That Compels the Heart" is going to be released on June 3rd! The new book is called "Where I'm Home" and will pick up with our favourite Ballyclara residents three years after the first book.
"Where I'm Home" will be available on Amazon on June 3rd in print and ebook formats.
I know we're all facing an unprecedented time right now of staying home and practicing social distancing, which is having people searching for ways to keep their minds and bodies active. So, in the spirit of wanting to re-connect with you all again, I wanted to share with you a new section I've added to my website: My Reading List. Now, you can follow along with me as I work towards my Goodreads Challenge for 2020 and see what it is I'm reading. Because we're already approaching the month of April, I went and backdated my lists so you can see which books I read in January, February, and March.
Hope you all enjoy! And if you want to share your reading lists with me, feel free to add them to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and tag me: @AuthorErinBowlen (Facebook), @erinbowlen (Twitter) @erin.bowlen (Instagram)

The Upcoming Project - When's it Coming Out? What is it? For the love of God, Erin, just tell me something!
As the title of this post implies, this is an update about my upcoming novel. Yes, I realize that when you go through and read this post that there are a lot of "I don't knows" in it, but that's the joys of writing. Despite popular belief, novels don't write themselves, you know. I have to actually have the time to sit down and put pen to paper (or, in this case, type out words on my computer) in order to get it finished. However, I do hope you find the answers to your questions below, helpful:
What's it called?
- I don't know. For now, its working title is NaNoWriMo Project #2 (bet you can't guess that it's called that because it's the second project I began working on for NaNoWriMo about 4 years ago. I'm just kidding. About the "you not figuring out why the working title is what it is part," I mean. You get my drift). Anywho, once it has a proper title, I promise that you'll be the first to know (well, after my best friends, closest confidantes, etc.)
When's it coming out?
- The short answer? I don't know. Sometime in January (at least that's the plan).
What's it about?
- Well, at the risk of giving you spoilers (I've been told that I inadvertently give out spoilers to things when I really don't mean to), all I will say is that it's about a girl, it's set in Ireland, and that's all you get to know for now. Don't worry, there'll be more info available closer to publishing.
Speaking of publishing, do you have a publisher?
- No, but that's ok because I never intended to have a publisher when I decided to release this novel. Why did I decide to do self-publishing? Well, mostly because I wasn't quite ready yet to give up creative control over things like cover art, pricing, etc. With the number of tools available to aspiring or established authors, it's easier than ever to go the self-publishing route, and so I'm going to give it a shot.
And those are the answers to the most frequently asked questions about the novel so far. Stay tuned to this page for further updates!
