North Scituate, RI — September 12. Award-winning author Sebastian Cole will be discussing his journey through writing and publishing his debut novel, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Loveon Tuesday, October 22 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm as part of the 2013 Rhode Island Authors Series at the North Scituate Public Library, 606 West Greenville Rd, North Scituate, RI 02857. He’ll also be discussing what inspired him to write the novel, as well as the unexpected rewards derived from touching the lives of others through his writing. Joining him will be fellow RI author Julien Ayotte, author of Flower of Heaven.

Sebastian ColeCole’s novel has won numerous awards, including being the winner of the Beverly Hills Book Award, the bronze winner of ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Award, a finalist in the International Book Awards, and a finalist in ForeWord Firsts debut literary competition. Sand Dollar has a rating of 4.5 stars (out of 5 stars) on Amazon with over 100 reviews, and the eBook version recently made the list of Amazon’s top 100 best selling paid eBooks in the fiction category.

Set in Rhode Island, Sand Dollar is about an elderly man’s deathbed encounter with a hospital orderly, in which he professes his undying love for his soul mate and one true love, Robin, who also happens to be “the one who got away.” As his family members arrive to bid him goodbye, Noah’s story takes on new life, and he discovers a far greater truth about the past, present, and future. Things are definitely not as they appear as the pieces of a shattered love are put back together in the remarkable final chapter of Noah’s life.

Although Sand Dollar is considered to be a romantic fantasy — a kind of cross between The Notebook and The Sixth Sense — the book distinguishes itself from other romance novels in its genre by its honest portrayal of life as a recurring tragedy — a roller coaster ride of sorts between joy and heartache — and the faith needed to overcome it. As a result, Sand Dollar is a thought-provoking, emotional read that, among other things, might even have you yelling at the main characters at times. And not only is it filled with plenty of twists and turns, but the surprise ending is a real shocker.

Sebastian Cole never intended on being a writer. He graduated from Brown University in the 80s, then worked briefly in New York before returning to Rhode Island to work in his family’s business. Nineteen years later, he took a leap of faith and left the company to pursue his dreams, which has led him to where he is now: a novelist of romantic fiction. Cole writes from the heart, believing in true love, love at first sight, and finding that one person in life you’re meant to be with. Many have compared Cole to Nicholas Sparks, whom Cole cites as his favorite author and inspiration for becoming an author. Whether or not he ever achieves that kind of success, touching the lives of others through his writing has been the single most gratifying thing he has ever done.

RI Author Sebastian Cole Joins Local Authors for Book Signing at Barnes & Noble

Warwick, RI – April 08, 2013.  Rhode Island author Sebastian Cole will be doing a book signing for his debut novel, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love, on Thursday, April 25, 2013 from 6 pm – 8 pm at Barnes & Noble, 1350-B Bald Hill Rd, Warwick, RI. Sebastian will be joined by a host of other local RI authors, including Steven Porter, Rebecca Maizel, Laura Backman, Wayne Souza, David Marrocco, Karen Petit, Cris Pfeil, Ana Arelys Cruz, Jackie Hennessey, Cynthia Barlow, and Rachel McClellan.

Sand Dollar is an epic, heart-wrenching love story about the “one who got away”. It is best described as a romantic fantasy, kind of like The Notebook with a Sixth Sense twist. Similar to a Nicholas Sparks novel, but uniquely different,Sand Dollar is a thought-provoking, emotional read with real life situations that might even have you yelling at the main characters at times. A mixture of joy and heartache, this realistic portrayal of life is what sets Sand Dollar apart from other romance novels.

When the story opens, Noah, who’s old and sick in a hospital bed, tells his story of undying love for his soul mate, his one true love, Robin, who also happens to be the one who got away. Told from Noah’s point of view, the story has two timelines: when he’s old and when he’s young. After plenty of twists and turns that make it hard to put the book down, the two timelines intersect with a surprising plot twist, and the story moves forward with the most beautiful of endings – an ending that you’ve just got to read for yourself!

Author Sebastian Cole is a native Rhode Islander and graduate of Brown University. Set in Rhode Island, Sand Dollar reflects over forty years of personal life experiences. A true romantic, his life is defined by following his heart and pursuing his dreams, which is why he has become a novelist. Sebastian writes from the heart, believing in true love, love at first sight, and finding that one person in life you’re meant to be with.

Sebastian Cole’s novel is currently a finalist for the Book Of The Year Award in the Romance category at ForeWord Reviews magazine, and was also a finalist in the ForeWord Firsts debut literary competition for first-time authors. Sand Dollar has a rating of 4.6 stars (out of 5 stars) on Amazon with over 75 reviews, and was recently on the cover of the March 25th issue of Publishers Weekly. The book has been getting rave reviews, many of which compare Sebastian to his favorite author, Nicholas Sparks. Whether or not he ever achieves that kind of success, touching the lives of others through his writing has been the single most gratifying thing he has ever done in his life.

Sand Dollar is one of those rare books that makes you feel, laugh and cry all at the same time. This smashing debut by Sebastian Cole reads like the best of Nicholas Sparks with just enough schmaltz.” – Jon Land, best selling author.
