My name is MG Braden and I chose the Harmony card.

Or, rather, it chose me. Isn't she beautiful? As soon as I saw her my heroine, Kara Staten, came to me. No other card mattered. But, how could I make this vampire story different. How could I make it lighter? Harmonious, even?

When the idea came to me, I sat down, spinned it all out in the proposal and sent it off after having my critique partner look it over. To say that I was excited to have been contracted for this is putting it mildly. To be a Cobblestone author, to be part of this Vampire Oracle series, and in the company of the other amazing authors contracted for this - Wow!

Here's my (unedited)blurb for the Vampire Oracle - Harmony:
Recently engaged, Kara Staten and Marc Brodeur are in love, and life is good. Kara has a brand new business, and they have both worked hard to get to where they are. When things start to turn bad, they struggle for the harmony they once had.

The balance starts to unravel, secrets become harder to keep. Kara's skincare salon's "Take A Bite Out of Love (TBOL)" campaign results in several almost fatal love bites, and Marc doesn't know if he's the cause. He's a vampire trying to live a normal life.

As the vampire in him struggles to take control, Marc is only sure that he can't be the man Kara needs. She doesn't know he's a vampire--can't know. As their lives spin into separate paths, they will find that the thing that could tear them apart is the one thing that will ultimately keep them together.

I hope you will join me, and all of the Vampire Oracle authors, in celebrating the release of our books in 2008!
