Win a copy of my Christmas ebook, ”Clear as Glass”, and an original Danish Rosendahl Christmas ornament!

Later this month “Clear as Glass” will be released. To celebrate that I’ve decided to host a little giveaway.

THE PRIZE is a copy of the ebook and a silver holly Christmas ornament from Rosendahl. I did consider a glass bauble in true “Clear as Glass” style, but it’s been my experience that glass doesn’t always ship so well.


ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is follow me on Twitter (@jannielund) and tweet the following:
I entered the "Clear as Glass” by @jannielund Christmas GIVEAWAY! Details here:


leave a comment on my blog or Facebook post.

All posts must be received before December 9th where I announce the winner. I will ship the ornament quickly so it can hang on your Christmas tree this year if you win. The book will be available for download on December 20th.

The Next Big Thing Blog Hop

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

The lovely and amazingly talented M.A. Stacie tagged me in The Next Big Thing Blog Hop, which means it's time to reveal a little about what I'm working on at the moment.

What is the working title of your book?
It's called "Finding Eve". Initially it was just to call it something, but the more I think about it, the more I'm leaning toward keeping it as the title. At least until something better pops up.

Where did the idea come from for the book?
A while ago I read a series of articles about children in Spain that had been kidnapped. Some were taken on their way home from school or whatever, and some were taken at birth by hospital staff. The parents were then told that their childen had died at birth and were so deformed that they shouldn't be looked at. Decades later the truth is slowly being unraveled. Reading about it broke my heart, and the stories stayed with me until one day I formulated a loose plot idea and sat down to write.

What genre does your book fall under?
Contemporary romance.

What is the one (two!) sentence synopsis for your book?
 Who can find Eve? Her family, the man who loves her, or the woman who used to be Eve?

What are the central themes in your book?
Above all, love. Love between a man and a woman. Between parent and child, brother and sister, which leads us to another very central theme - family. And belonging somewhere. I said above that it was reading about kidnapped children that gave me the idea for the book, but the story is actually about the aftermath - about the kidnapped child - now woman - returning to the family she was taken from.

Describe a random character in your book:
Lucas Quinn. He's the twin brother of the main female character, and for almost thirty years he has lived with knowledge that few others believe. His sister, who was kidnapped when she was only a few months old, is alive. He feels her out there somewhere - he knows she's not dead. But he can't find her. He's stubborn and loyal, never backing down when he truly believes in something.

VJS 2012

Friday, November 2, 2012

I received my advance copy of VJS in the mail today. There are two of my short stories in there - "Det der virkelig tæller" (What Really Counts) and "Hjem til jul" (Home for Christmas).

"Det der virkelig tæller" is contemporary Christmas with a healthy dose of Murphy's Law. Sofie in her newlywed bliss decides to tackle Christmas dinner for the entire family for the first time. Enter Murphy and his law...

"Hjem til jul" is a nostalgic tale of the young Sine waiting for her beloved to come home for the holidays.

VJS 2012 will be relased on November 6th.
