Tyler Cook, Franklin native and Western Carolina University alumnus, will release his debut novel, “The One,” at a special release party on Saturday, Feb. 21, at 11:30 a.m. at the Macon County Public Library.
“I am very excited about the release,” said Cook. “All of my life, I have always wanted to be an author of fiction, and now I can say that I am.”
The book, which took Cook five months to write, is a story of love, heartbreak and moving forward.
In “The One,” Eli Cooper never expects love to be this difficult. When someone from his past suddenly reappears, he can’t help but notice the attraction between the two of them. But sometimes, the people that you love may not love you back. Eli must find his way back from heartbreak, and discover a life where his love can be returned. But in order to do that, he must also face his demons, and overcome his greatest fear: Revealing his deepest secret to the world.
