Book Summary

Oh, that’s right, we talk about your love life. We sit with you in class. We know all about that thing you did last night. How do we know? We watch you. We go to those dance clubs with you. We scheme hideous outcomes for you. We know exactly what it is that will get you to our side. We create those wrong friendships you wished you never had. We invite you into those relationships that break your heart. We give you the life you never wanted, but it came at such a sweet price. We promised you the world and you took it like a kid wanting candy. All. Too. Easy. All I can say is, please, don’t let me get in the way of the worst ending of your life. I’m right behind you. I’ll open that door to frustration, nonsense and destruction.

Please. After You.

Guest Post from Sunshine Rodgers

Hello Everyone! Thank you so much for being a part of the Celebrate Lit’s Blog Tour of my book “After You: A Demon is Always Lurking Nearby.” This book is a modern day twist on the classic novel “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis. My book is a PG-13 novel told from a demon’s point of view on the many temptations and distractions the Enemy of our soul uses to deviate us from God’s plan. The demon in the story is after a girl in high school, so if you can imagine all the playground of resources the demons can play with around an insecure teenager just trying to survive peer pressure, boys and school! I invite you in to explore another realm outside of this one, as this story takes place in Hades and on Earth!
Now, I write Faith-based books and all of them are surrounded by biblical truth and accuracy (as much as I can for Christian fiction!). My other works include: “God the Father, Jesus the Big Brother, Holy Spirit the Best Friend,” “This is My Heaven” and “Last Night, When I Prayed.” In all of my books – even this dark one – I write about God’s pursuit of us, His personal and deep love and His sovereignty that He remains in control no matter what is happening around us!
I pray “After You, A Demon is Always Lurking Nearby” will open your eyes to the spiritual activity taking place around you. I hope you will begin to observe that following God and doing things His way causes the devil to get scared! And anything you do that impacts the Kingdom of God will attract demonic activity. But at the end of the day, God has the final word and we are saved and delivered under His amazing grace!
I would love to hear from you! Connect with me on social media! And I cannot wait to hear your thoughts on my book! Much love! – Sunshine

Book Review by Bree Herron

Well if there is anything to say for judging a book by its cover, it is that sometimes the covers hide a really good story that makes you think and see the spiritual warfare in a different light. Having enjoyed Screwtape Letters, I had an idea what to expect but I found it fascinating to read this book.


I really dislike this cover, and in fact, if I rated books by covers, I would be sending a 2-star review. But, covers are just 2% of a book and in this case,e it covers a gem.

Enjoyable Moments

I thought the approach to this topic was the best part of the book. It was interesting to have it from a demon’s point of view. The author does a great job with sentence structure and usage of words to grip the reader in each chapter.


Spirtiual warfare is not to be taken lightly and this book managed to paint it in light that many readers can follow and understand. It is creative and enjoyable to read. I haven’t fully processed what I have read and will go back to read it again, but I can say this book is one that leaves a reader with much to think about. I recommend this book.

I Rate it
