When Los Angeles publicist Sydney Green convinces her boss to let her produce a documentary for the Save the Walrus Foundation, the only one Sydney Green is interested in saving is herself. The walruses are merely a means to improving her career and her love life, and not necessarily in that order. Sydney would’ve killed the project the second she learned she’d be the one having to spend a month in rural Alaska if it had been for any other client. But for rising star and sometimes boyfriend Blake McKinley, no sacrifice is ever too great.

But a funny thing happens on the way to the Arctic. A gregarious walrus pup, a cantankerous scientist, an Australian sex goddess, a Star Wars obsessed six-year-old, and friends and nemeses both past and present rock Sydney Green’s well-ordered world. Soon Sydney is forced to choose between doing what’s easy and doing what’s right.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

What a wonderful book. I originally bought the ebook for my kindle because of the title and the price. I did not expect to fall in love with this book, but I did. I have only had it for about 2 weeks and I have read it twice, contemplating a third. Loved the characters she created. Wonderfully written. Have already been recommending to friends and family!

What do you have when you take an LA Publicist, an ego driven movie star, an environmentalist and an island full of walrus?
You have the ingredients for a great book that will take you from the glitter of Hollywood to a remote, rustic island where you will find love, jealousy and a concern for the walrus.

The author manages to put you right in the heart of the Alaskan Island and in the midst of a romantic tale. This is really a great story and I highly recommend it.0

Beth Orsoff has quickly become one of my favorite Indie Authors. I started with Honeymoon For One and laughed all the way through the book. I quickly volunteered for reading an advanced copy of How I Learned to Love the Walrus and again completely got sucked into the story. Beth is an amazing writer and manages to develop characters as well as feeling like you are on location where ever the book takes you. I love that Beth creates characters that feel “real” instead of fantasy!

I’m not one of those people who knew from the age of three that they wanted to be a writer. In fact, my mother had told me since the age of five that I should be a lawyer because I liked to argue [with her] so much. But I didn’t buy into that philosophy until much later.

When I graduated from the University of Florida with a B.A. in English/Film Studies I didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do with my life. So I became a professional lifeguard. I had health insurance, a killer tan, got paid to work out, and my hair was actually turning blond naturally. It was a great job.

But then one day Mom and Dad came to visit and gave me the “we didn’t send you to college so you could be a professional lifeguard” speech. Although my parents swear to this day that they never encouraged me to be a lawyer, they did pay for me to take the LSAT prep class. (You can draw your own conclusions.) Somehow I managed to score in the top 1% on the exam and instead of attributing it to the fact that I’m a good standardized test-taker, I decided it meant the law was My Calling. Since I’ve always loved movies and was already dating a screenwriter wannabe, I decided to move to California, enroll in USC Law School, and pursue my newly acquired dream of being an entertainment lawyer.

Shockingly, things did go as planned. For a while anyway. Although the first book I purchased after finishing the torturous three-day-long California Bar Exam was entitled “How to Write a Novel.” That should’ve been my first clue that perhaps the law was not My True Calling.

Fast forward seven years. I was a regular attendee of UCLA Extension Writers Program workshops and working as an entertainment lawyer in the Warner Bros. Theatrical Legal Department when I decided to quit my job so I could finally write that novel. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Beth Orsoff and ENT appreciate it.
