When writing his novels, Nicholas Sparks aims to write a story that feels real and evokes genuine emotion.

The acclaimed author and Trent Woods resident soon will unveil his 18th novel — “The Longest Ride.”

The book will be available Tuesday — the day he kicks off a book-signing tour at 8 a.m. at Target in New Bern.

“It comes down to I hope they enjoy the novel,” Sparks said. “I write them because I want people to read them, enjoy them and remember them.”

“The Longest Ride” is the newest Sparks’ novel since “The Best of Me” appeared in 2011.

And it’s his first attempt at a dual love story.

The story documents two couples, ages apart, from western North Carolina. Not knowing each other, their lives cross paths in a surprising ending.
