First of all I want to congratulate Alysha on the release of her fantastic self-published novel. I’m so happy for her! To celebrate her achievement, we’re doing a giveaway! Scroll down the bottom to enter to win a signed copy of her novel!

Jude and Nina are the epitome of that whole raw, unflinching love thing that most people are jealous of. That is, until Jude dies and wakes up in The Waiting Room, surrounded by other souls who are all waiting to pass over into their next life. But unlike those souls, Jude’s name is never called by the mysterious “receptionist”. He waits, watching Nina out of giant windows. He’s waiting for her. What is this place? How long will he wait? And what will happen when and if Nina does join him? The Waiting Room is a story of not just love, but of faith, predestination, and philosophy, friendship and self-actualization, of waiting.

The Waiting Room had the most unique, believable and fun approach to the afterlife I have ever read. I find myself hoping that’s it’s true – hoping that I, too, get to visit the waiting room and remember all of my past lives.

The stories of Jude and Nina’s lives outside of the waiting room were compelling, and the whole novel is neatly written, but it’s the relationships that Jude forms within the waiting room that captivated me. Friendships blossomed as he watched the reception staff grow and age.

I couldn’t put it down. In the end, I only had one complaint: there wasn’t enough. Decades passed, and I would love to have read everything that happened in their lives, or in the waiting room. It could have been a 700 page novel and I would have devoured it (and probably still asked for more).

It’s part romance, part philosophy. What is the waiting room? Who controls it? Who decides what happens in the next life? Whether you’re interested in the romance that transcends mortality or the mysteries of the waiting room, Alysha Kaye’s terrific debut has something to interest everyone and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
