Set after the events of Blount’s debut memoir, Once Upon A Road Trip, this short story anthology focuses on the unusual courtship of Angeli and Vincent.
When Angeli left Minnesota on a post-high school road trip, all she wanted was to see the East Coast and finally meet some of her online friends. She didn’t expect to end up in a long-distance relationship with a computer-savvy Southern boy. Yet Vincent seems determined to defy the odds. To prove his intentions, he sets off on his own quest to visit Angeli and win her family’s approval. But along the way he’ll have to contend with her offbeat friends, trigger-happy father, and a few questionable run-ins with Northern hospitality.
South meets North this time around, and “normal” isn’t anywhere on the map.
With a thousand miles and radically different upbringings between them, can Angeli and Vincent forge a forever-worthy bond? Or are the roadblocks they face too much for either of them to overcome?

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Although my first two books have been memoirs, my particular style produces more of a fiction feel. Readers can easily forget they are taking in a true story.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Surround yourself with other writers in various stages of their careers and draw inspiration and assistance from that camaraderie, read often and read widely, develop a thick (yet not impenetrable) skin for criticism, and never give up.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This continuation anthology was something I’d been kicking around since shortly before the release of my debut, Once Upon a Road Trip. As reviewers and fans repeatedly mentioned wanting to know what happened after the events of the first book, I decided I would go ahead with a continuation to help satisfy some of that curiosity and provide readers with more decisive closure.
Though it is immediately related to the first book, it does stand on its own and can be read as a chronological short story compilation.
