A New Book Contract: Go, Oskar!


Yay! The Wild Rose Press has offered me a contract for Sweet Magik, book #2 of the Klaus Brothers Series. It will be coming out for the holiday season in 2011. (For Christmas 2010, Penelope will be stringing cranberries and popcorn for the tree, drinking low-fat eggnog and listening to Celine Dion's xmas album.....bring it on!).

Book #2 is Oskar's story (that's a photo of him.....nice!!!!!!!!!). Here's the book blurb:

***


Sweet Magik


Job Title: Director of Elfin Resources

Location: The North Pole

Employer: St. Nicholas

Description: Babysitting a bunch of ornery, cussing, crotchety elves

Oskar Klaus' job is killing him. Not even his favorite hobbies (extreme snowboarding and browsing old bookstores) are enough to snap him out of his funk. It's not easy living in the shadow of four successful older brothers and a father named Santa. Little does he know that an unexpected kiss on New Year's Eve is about to turn his life upside down.

Kiana Grant's Manhattan life is a world away from her childhood in Oahu. She traded stunning sunsets and bad boy surfers for a respectable career in library science. Oskar Klaus poses a temptation to her heart that's hard to resist. Does she have the courage to take a chance on love? Or will a vengeful elf turn her North Pole adventure into a nightmare?

I am going to try and whip off a quick freebie short story about Sven Klaus for this xmas and post it on my website. In the meantime, I am working on L'Araldo di Primavera, my botanical paranormal, and gearing up for the New Jersey RWA conference in Oct.


Happy Weekend, Everyone!

Congratulations! Yay Oskar! I'm sad we won't have a Santa son this year, but I know it'll be worth the wait, and so will the botanical paranormal. Yeah! This is great news!

Thanks, Mandi! At the rate I'm going with this series, the brothers will be 95 years old by the time I'm done. Romance with walkers!
