Summer Fever: the novella

September 10, 2014

Hello, my name is TT Kove, and I’m here today to chat with all you lovely people! My latest novella (and first release with Dreamspinner Press) was released today, September 10th. It’s titled Summer Fever. It’s set in Norway (where I live!), and it’s a story that’s been with me for a few years now. It was rewritten many times, and has finally ended up the version that has been released today.

Some of you may wonder, why set a book in Norway? Well, because it’s my country and because no one else has done it before! (Or has someone other than me written a book set in Norway? In that case, please recommend it my way!)

This is a feel-good book, or at least that’s how I felt writing it. A sweet little insight of the burgeoning love of Axel and Folke and their love for the Norwegian mountains. I’ll get back to that in a later post, with some pictures and all!

I’ll leave off this blog post with the blurb for the book, in case you’re interested:




Basking in the long summer days, Axel hikes away from his worries through Norway’s idyllic mountain passes. He’s so at ease that he slips off his clothes and bathes in the cool lake water with no fear of being called out for his bright red hair or body full of freckles. Life is grand. 

Peace and quiet doesn’t come easy for mystery writer Folke. When he stumbles across his copper-haired muse naked in a mountain oasis, plans for his future novel are long forgotten in favor of love. Nature takes a bite out of the serenity the two find, and the real world encroaches, making the happy couple wonder if they didn’t just suffer a summer fever.

Question for you all: Have you ever been to Norway? Or any of the other Scandinavian countries? If so, what do you think of them?

    Good morning TT. I’ve never been to Norway or out of the state but I do like learning more about other places via books and stuff.
