Read a romance about spring in Norway - and support breast cancer research!

It’s been a month since the anthology LOVE IN BLOOM was published and what a month!

This is the first time I’ve ever published anything so I must admit there was some nailbiting going on. What if everyone hated my story, Cosplay? What if it didn’t make sense to anyone?

Would people from other countries understand Scandinavian romance? Would they get the humor?

Luckily it seems they did. The book is out and the reviews are in, and I’ve been dancing around myself ever since (and writing on my next Scandinavian romance)!

Five star reviews for the anthology

The whole anthology had some amazing reviews. And I can certainly see why. I didn’t get to read most of the stories until after LOVE IN BLOOM was published, but I was amazed with how great they all were. Steampunk battleship captains, vampires, police officers, dog handlers and cosplayers all found true love in the spring.

Buy a book, support a great cause

LOVE IN BLOOM has been such a fun project to be a part of, especially for a newbie like me. I’ve learned so much from all the more experienced writers in the project.

It was also great to be a part of a project that can actually help people. Every cent we make from LOVE IN BLOOM will be donated to breast cancer research and that means a lot to me. Several of the reviewers seemed to like the charity part of the book.

Cosplay – a Scandinavian romance

My short story, Cosplay, is about online friends who meet offline for the first time. It takes place in Norway, but the heroine is from Arizona, USA. She’s traveled all the way to Norway to meet her online friend, but how well does she really know her friend?
