Diverse Reader is happy to have author Kim Katil here with us today talking about her new book! Tis the season and she's offering someone a wonderful holiday gift pack of a gift card and two ebooks! Be sure to check it all out.
I had not planned to do a holiday story at all this year. But I had a glimpse of Kyle, walking alone on a beach searching for just the right piece of glass. And once I had that glimpse, I had to write his story and give him not only his sea glass but also his happily ever after. Not only with a man who would love him, but with his chosen family to support him.
St. Nicholas Day was the perfect backdrop for this story. It is a holiday that I have always associated with intimate family gatherings. It was never about wish lists or grand gifts, but rather small meaningful things and an excuse for time spent as a family. The holiday itself is a gift that Aunt Ollie shares with Kyle and his James.
I hope you enjoy the story!
Kyle has loved James, his best friend’s older brother, for as long as he can remember. Unfortunately, James is a player, and Kyle has no desire to be his latest conquest. When James suddenly turns the full weight of his charm on him, Kyle flees to Cape May Point to collect sea glass and Cape May diamonds to make a St. Nicholas Day present for his aunt.
James has always taken Kyle’s presence for granted and he’s shocked to find how integral Kyle is to his life and future happiness. Braving his families’ well-meaning attempts to help and a sudden winter storm, James heads to the shore to convince Kyle that the most precious thing they’ll find on the beach is each other.
About the Author
Kim lives in the mythical and contentious territory known as Central Jersey. Originally from South Jersey, she is still unsure if Central Jersey is a real place or a Fae construct. Her movement from the lower to middle band of the state was interrupted by time spent living in Ireland, Boston, Uzbekistan, Maryland, Trinidad, and Florida. So far, she has only been asked to leave one country.
Work-related travel is an unfortunate side effect of the day job but allows her to meet new and interesting people along the way. She has been known to have dinner with random strangers in airports and at street fairs. This level of “peopling” has caused shock and horror in her writers’ group.
A happily ever after is a necessity. Kim loves to give her characters a fun adventure to get them there and a plethora of family and friends to help them along the way.
She also has a writer dog ❤
