CANCELED: February Tour: My Sweet Saga by Brett Sills (International)


My Sweet Saga
by Brett Sills
Publisher:  Admiral J Press
Publication Date:  September 2011

At 30 years old, Brandon is barely able to make it through life, much less enjoy it. He is weeks away from what should be one of the happiest days of his life, his wedding day to his fiancée, Clarissa, but his attention is distracted when his estranged, erratic and oddly eccentric father suddenly reappears with a bizarre demand: to accompany him to Stockholm, Sweden, where they will meet a man who he claims will change their lives.

Desperate for even a brief escape from his reality, Brandon reluctantly goes with his father, ready for a disaster. But his life changes completely the moment his eyes meet the mysterious Swedish man's daughter, Saga. On a cobblestone street in the middle of Stockholm, Brandon reawakens to life, though struggles to navigate the messy love triangle with Saga and his fiancée, which includes multiple arrests, hospital stays, terrorist bombs, acts of heroism and foolishness, family secrets and even a bit of public nudity.

"I aimed to capture that unmistakable feeling: just when you think your life is over, you fall in love, feel invigorated, do the stupidest crap imaginable and find the absolute beauty in both the happiness and pain of the entire experience," Sills says.

Sills believes that though his work may come off as solely entertaining at first, the story and struggles of Brandon have more heart than readers might expect. He hopes that it not only allows readers to realize that there is more to life than just suffering through it, but also gives them a romantic, American point of view of Sweden: a country that has had a sudden boom in interest and popularity due to the extreme recent success of crime novels like "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo."

"I want readers to fall in love with Sweden as much as I did," Sills says.
