The Nightmare Before Kissmas

Cat Sims illustrates the cover of Sara Raasch's sweet romcom novel.

Illustrated by Cat in a striking comic book style, the novel, published by Penguin will hit the shelves this October.

Following two royal princes and one staged competition, the author intertwines Halloween with Christmas – 

Coal, the Prince of Christmas, is disenchanted with the holiday, especially since his father, the reigning Santa, has reduced it to just another PR exercise. After one too many mishaps, Coal is caught off guard by a surprising twist: a marriage to his best friend, aimed at crafting the perfect holiday photo op to unite their families. But when a rival contender arrives to vie for the princess’s hand, Coal is confronted by a ghost from his past: Hex, the irresistibly charming Prince of Halloween. Will Coal upend Santa’s plans and fall for Christmas's most formidable adversary? Or will this holiday season turn into an absolute disaster?
