Hey everyone! I’m so, so excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for Forever for a Year by B.T. Gottfred (July 7th 2015, Henry Holt and Co. [BYR]). This book sounds incredible and I’m very, very excited to read it! Today, I’ll be sharing with you my description of what it feels like to fall in love for the first time. Plus, there’s a giveaway! First, here’s more about the book:
When Carolina and Trevor meet on their first day of school, something draws them to each other. They gradually share first kisses, first touches, first sexual experiences. When they’re together, nothing else matters. But one of them will make a choice, and the other a mistake, that will break what they thought was unbreakable. Both will wish that they could fall in love again for the first time . . . but first love, by definition, can’t happen twice.
Told in Carolina and Trevor’s alternating voices, this is an up-close-and-personal story of two teenagers falling in love for the first time, and discovering it might not last forever.

And now here’s my post! Enjoy!
“How would you describe the feeling of falling in love for the first time?”
Falling in love for the first time.. It’s different for everyone. It’s exciting and nerve-wracking, all at once. It’s fun and new and you don’t know where it’s going to lead. It means opening yourself up to someone and trusting that they won’t break your heart. Sometimes, it’s love at first sight – you just KNOW, deep in your heart, that there’s something special about that person. Sometimes, it even comes out of years of friendship.
For most people, the first time they fall in love, it’s awkward and messy because they have no idea what they’re doing, what to say or how to act. But no matter what, you’ll never forget your first love – hopefully for good reasons, rather than bad ones!
In the end, only one thing is certain: love is one huge uncertainty. If your first love ends up being the person you marry, that’s amazing! But it’s okay if your first love isn’t your last love. Follow your heart, but trust your gut. You’ll know if it’s right or not. Whether your first love is epic or just one of many, it’ll impact your life for years to come. You’ll learn from it, you’ll grow and you’ll find happiness. Because in the end, being happy and enjoying life are the most important things.

About the Author:
And… yeah… I’m crazy but can pretend really, really well I’m not. Sort of what I feel about everybody. (Except for the people who can’t pretend they’re not crazy. You know who you are. Actually, never mind, you probably don’t.)
Anyway, here’s some stuff I’ve done to help me feign sanity:
Wrote and directed the play, “Women Are Crazy Because Men Are A**holes” that has played over four years in Los Angeles and Chicago and just made its Off Broadway premiere at the historic Cherry Lane Theatre. Los Angeles Times said: “Seldom have I been a part of a more enthusiastic and vocal audience. Brad T Gottfred’s play about young couples stumbling through the minefield of codependency taps a universal nerve.”
Wrote, directed, and executive produced the feature film “The Movie Hero” which played at over 20 film festivals worldwide, winning numerous awards including First Prize at the Rhode Island Film Festival and the Audience Award at the Austin Film Festival.
My first play, “Marry, F**K, Or Kill” was called “a guilty pleasure for veterans of the single life” by the Los Angeles Times. It went on to an Off Broadway premiere in the fall of 2011.
First web series “Sex and Love Conspire to Destroy the World” was released by MyDamnChannel in 2013.
My first-ish novel, “Forever for a Year”, was released in July 2015 by Macmillan/Holt.
