My Writing/Publishing Plans for the Rest of 2015 @KarynGerrard #ComingSoon

So what are my plans? I will be able to request the rights back on a couple of books from Decadent Publishing this year, with more to follow into 2016, (I have 9 in total there) and by the end of 2016 all but one title will be eligible to revert to me as per contracts.

So, what to do with them? I don't write as hot as I used to, well, not quite as hot. Also, I don't write paranormal any longer. Do I bother to re-issue any of these stories? Decisions, decisions.

First up is My Vampire Cover Model, I got the official email and rights will revert on August 1 2015. I will have a look at the manuscript and will no doubt revise, re-edit and add more story. If and when I re-release it, I will self pub it. I imagine the title will stay the same, it is kinda cool.

The Blind Cupid. (1st in the Blind Cupid series) First off, this one will definitely get a title change. It was released through Decadent's 'The Edge' line (now defunct) so the story is extra hot and had to be kept under 7000 words. This book was published Dec 13 2012, so I will request rights back this summer. My working title is "The Spinster and Mr. Glover." When I release it, it will be re-written (more words added) revised and re-edited and it will be self-pubbed. I want it ready to go when the rights revert. This also means the Blind Cupid anthology will have to come down. Books 2 and 3 will remain at Decadent for now until I am contractually able to request the rights to revert to me.

What else is on tap? I asked for and got the rights back to my two time travels. A tip of the hat to Evernight Publishing. Generous of them to fulfil my request. So Timeless Heart should be released the end of May or around the first of June. Edits ongoing and more than 7000 words added. It will be self pubbed. (cover art above) No immediate plans for Timeless Love.

Next is my first (and hopefully not last) release with Kensington Publishing's Lyrical Press. Bold Seduction, comes out Sept 1st 2015. It is a hot historical romance of about 40,000 words

A clarification on Lyrical Press.(as I've had a couple of authors ask me about it)  It was bought by New York publisher Kensington Publishing Jan 2014. It is not a separate entity of Kensington, but rather the digital arm of the publisher much like Loveswept is to Random House and Avon Impulse is to Harper Collins/Avon. So you are not dealing with a small e-press at all. There are many layers of editors to get through to be accepted and the fact I was still floors me. Also, don't expect a quick turn around in publishing like you can get with smaller e-pubs. All digital releases (Romance and otherwise) are included in Kensington's main release schedule. Case in point, I signed the contract for Bold Seduction July 2014. The release date is Sept 2015. You get the idea.


At the moment, I have one manuscript out for consideration.

What am I working on? Another historical. First draft almost finished. Then I have to decide what to do with it.

Sometime this spring or summer I hope to start book 3 in my Wicked Men of Rockland series with Crimson Romance. Working title is "Wicked Cold Heart" I believe when a series is on-going, I like to keep it in one place. For now. Anything can happen to change my mind.

NOTE: I deleted my paragraph on e-pubs. I sounded too whiny and maybe a touch bitter, lol~

I am not in this for the money. My best year was 2013 and like most others have seen a dip in sales since then. I don't measure my own personal success in writing by the almighty dollar sign though I am fully aware publishers do. I do this for me. My enjoyment--plain and simple.

I've set goals for myself, and slowly but surely, I am getting there. When I opened the manuscript for Timeless Heart, (published in 2011)  I was shocked how much my writing has changed. But also pleased. I've made real progress and I hope to continue onward.

Cheers~

NEW RELEASE! #Victorian #Historical The Baron and the Mistress by @KarynGerrard #Sensual




THE BARON AND THE MISTRESS By Karyn Gerrard
Release date: April 7th, 2015
Historical/Victorian/Sensual
Approx: 29,700 words
KG Publishing
Great price! 1.99!


Forget the horrors. Remember...me.

A shivering young woman leans against a lamppost in the most notorious street of ill repute in all London. For Asher Colborne, Baron of Wenlock, this is a haunting vision of beauty and wretchedness. Uncharacteristically halting his carriage, he is shocked to discover the thin, dressed-in-rags creature is none other than Chastity Armitage, a beautiful angel who captured his heart at a grand ball more than two years past. For Colborne, her circumstance is a mystery he feels honor bound to unravel.

Chastity and her siblings have been on the run for more than two years. Desperate for food and lodging money, she is forced to sell herself. She never expected a tall, handsome man to appear as if from mist and change her life forever. She is given a choice, continue down the path of never-ending poverty or become the baron's mistress.

Though they are both determined the arrangement remain an emotionless business transaction, the attraction between them is scorching. Many barriers and obstacles lay in Chastity and Ash's path. Can the baron and the mistress embrace true love?

Heat Level: Very Sensual 



Excerpt: Chastity could not believe she allowed the well-dressed gentleman to take her away in his carriage. They did not go far nor did they speak during the short journey. They both sat in a private room at The Pig and Whistle tavern. Her stomach rumbled. The man, who introduced himself as Ash and insisted she call him by that name, ordered beef stew, ale, and extra bread and cheese.
Fifteen shillings? The obscene amount still rattled about in her bewildered brain. With proper planning the money would keep her and her brother and sister comfortable for some weeks. What in God’s name did he wish to do with her? Or to her? What perverse act would she be subjected to? His intense stare made her uncomfortable. This Ash was too handsome by far. After removing his hat and gloves, he ran his hand through his black-as-midnight hair. His eyes were the color of a fine cognac and the gleam of lust that shone from them sent waves of heat through her body. Ash removed his cloak. The silver lining appeared to be the finest silk. His tall frame was perfectly proportioned and how well it filled out the excellently tailored evening wear. A smartly tied silver cravat about his neck completed the look and he did look every inch the rake. Chastity caught a whiff of expensive cologne. The scent of bergamot and lemon invaded her nostrils. Her stomach dipped precipitously. Dear heaven, I find him attractive? Not wise. Chastity’s gaze darted about the small room trying to find a quick escape route.
“What is your name, my sweet?”
His voice was deep, resonant, and cultured. A sensual baritone as rich as melted dark chocolate. Should she give her name? What would it matter? “Chastity.”
The man’s eyes widened briefly as he shifted in his seat, but his concentrated gaze did not waver. “Interesting choice of name for a prossie.”
Fury boiled quick and hot in her veins. “It’s my real name and I’m not a...a...prossie!”
The corner of his mouth quirked in amusement. “Of course not, even though you offered me a quick tup—for coin.”
Chastity’s cheeks burned in humiliation. Before she could answer, the door burst open and the barmaid carried in a tray of foodstuffs. The tantalizing aroma of beef, grilled onions, and fresh bread made her salivate. For a meal such as this and fifteen shillings, she would agree to anything. And she would bet this arrogant, handsome man knew it.







AUTHOR INFO: Karyn lives in a small town in the western corner of Ontario, Canada. She whiles away her spare time writing and reading romance while drinking copious amounts of Earl Grey tea. Tortured heroes are a must. A multi-published author with a few bestsellers under her belt, Karyn loves to write historicals, particularly in the Victorian era. She also writes the occasional contemporary.
As long as she can avoid being hit by a runaway moose in her wilderness paradise she assumes everything is golden.


Karyn’s been happily married for a long time to her own hero. His encouragement keeps her moving forward.

When it Comes to Music, Canadians Rock! by @KarynGerrard #OCanada #HeartofRock

Let me reach back in the cobwebs of my mind to locate the memory of my very first rock concert.

April Wine in 1976. I still have the ticket stub, it cost 5.50.

Who is April Wine? Canadian rock, and how cool they started in my home province of Nova Scotia! See APRIL WINE here

So, There they were at the Halifax Forum. Smoke fills the air and 2 huge train signals rise up on either side of the stage. And the place goes nuts.

Their first hit was in 1971 and they are STILL touring! Listen to the song below.  I still have the album, though it is scratched all to hell. :)


                                             

 I've seen other Canadian acts through the years. The Stampeders. Prism. Trooper. Corey Hart, to name a few. In 2009 my hubs indulged me and brought along his earplugs and we saw Nickelback in Winnipeg. Also in Winnipeg two years later, we saw Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings.

Nickelback are much maligned, but they are a mega success worldwide. And I love the way they rock the house, they do put on a hell of a show. Now the hubs really loved the Bachman/Cummings concert.

                                          

Both these guys got their start in Winnipeg when they formed The Guess Who. Huge hits in the late sixties, early seventies. The group split, Cummings went solo and had a string of hits, and Bachman formed BTO, Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Both the hubs and I were on our feet pumping our fists in the air singing "Takin' Care of Business" with Randy and Burton.

This is the soundtrack of my youth, and at the forefront—Canadian Rock. Now, radio stations here in Canada are required to have a certain amount of Canadian content, which is restrictive in one way, but I think it's cool in another. Gave us a lot of exposure to some great home-grown talent. Outside of comedy, music is one of Canada's best entertainment exports.

Canadian movies and TV are hit and miss (mostly miss) But music? We rock.  Take a look at some of the acts:

60's-70's: Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, The Guess Who, The Band, Lighthouse, A Foot in Coldwater, April Wine, The Stampeders, Trooper, Five Man Electrical Band, Chilliwack, The Poppy Family, Terry Jacks, Andy Kim, Rush, Prism, Nick Gilder, Ian Thomas, Max Webster, Murray McLaughlin, Bruce Cockburn, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and many others.

80's-now: Loverboy, Saga, Tom Cochrane and Red Rider, Bryan Adams, Gowan, Corey Hart, Aldo Nova, Triumph, Glass Tiger, Honeymoon Suite, Frozen Ghost, Platinum Blonde, Helix, Toronto, Harlequin, Doug and the Slugs, Jeff Healey Band, Alanna Myles, Kim Mitchell, Streetheart, 54-40, The Tea Party, Matthew Good Band, The Tragically Hip, Crash Test Dummies, Blue Rodeo, Barenaked Ladies, Theory of a Deadman, Three Days Grace, Nickelback, Great Big Sea, Finger Eleven, Avril Lavigne, Alannis Moiresette, The Veer Union, Our Lady Peace, My Darkest Days, Monster Truck and so many others.

Rock on Canada!

My own rock star book!




HEART OF ROCK by Karyn Gerrard
  • File Size: 344 KB
  • Print Length: 80 pages
  • Publisher: Decadent Publishing Company, LLC (July 9, 2013)


Irishman Brogan Byrne is at the pinnacle of 1974 rock-music success. Handsome, charismatic, with a three-octave voice, you’d think he had it all. But Byrne sinks to new depths of depravity with women, liquor, and drugs.

Carly Montgomery is an ambitious record executive offered an opportunity to be manager for the last leg of Byrne's tour. Though she’s detached and tough as nails, Carly’s cool facade comes under attack. Somehow Byrne manages to slip by her frosty defenses.

Brogan, for his part, is broken inside. A past memory weighs on his soul, affecting his actions. Is Carly the one woman to help him forget his guilt and heal his heart of rock?



Warning: Light Bondage


Praise for HEART OF ROCK: Karyn Gerrard has a very strong writing voice. She paints a realistic picture of life as a rock star of the seventies and adds some fascinating secondary characters. She also touches on some more sensitive aspects caused by a life of extreme excess. Karyn does not shy away from telling it like it is and does so with skill and sensitivity.

Overall, the path Carly and Brogan travel that leads them through their love story is full of bumps and potholes culminating in a passionate romance. Heart of Rock is vivid, raw and gut-wrenching. A definite must-read! And I must add I LOVED the title - very fitting. ~Amazon review

COVER REVEAL: Timeless Heart by @KarynGerrard #Rerelease #ComingSoon #TimeTravel #RegencyHero




TIMELESS HEART
Regency/Contemporary Time Travel
approx 28,000 words
(re-release with 6000 words added)

Unofficial Blurb:

 Suffering from burnout, elementary school teacher Sandra Cranston is on leave and trying to eliminate stress from her life. That plan is blown when she discovers an abandoned carriage deep in the woods. Inside is a man, Jerrod Ross, who fuels all of her wicked Regency dreams and fantasies. Take him home? Sure, why not?

Jerrod Ross has been ripped from the only world he has ever known—1821 Cornwall, England. A mine owner with many responsibilities, all he wants to do is return to his time. But his growing attraction for the lovely lady who found him makes staying in the future a temptation he finds hard to resist.

Torn between duty and desire, past and future, the hardest thing Sandra and Jerrod will do is admit their feelings. Or say—goodbye.



Coming late spring/early summer from KG Publishing




This was the very first manuscript. It was accepted and offered a contract by a publisher (Evernight Publishing) in less than 24 hours after submitting. The story was released in Spring 2011. I was granted the rights back in Jan 2015 and have been working on it the last several weeks, editing, revising, and adding more than 6000 words so far. 

Also, this will be my first self-pubbed effort that is a re-release. I will certainly make sure I mark it as such in the blurb. I hope to release it late spring/early summer. I am not rushing. Taking my time and doing a thorough spiff and shine on it. Since this was my first, and it sold well and became an Amazon bestseller, it holds a special place in my heart.

From a marketing point of view, I should set release dates, but I really can't with my personal life in flux due to hubby's health. I can only take things one day at a time and that also takes in my writing/editing/releases. Take it as it comes, its all I can do.

Isn't the cover glorious? Done by Cora Graphics. The model is Kieran from Period Images. He fits my hero Jerrod Ross to a tee. ~Cheers!

Postmortem of Being in a Box Set: Did It Benefit Me? by @KarynGerrard #Sales #Opinion

I was in a box set, one of many Crimson Romance put together. It was available from August 2014 until March 2015.  The Wicked Bad (Wicked Men of Rockland #1) was part of it.

From what I see on Novelrank (I am aware it is no way accurate) but it appears it has sold thousands of copies in total, spending more than a few months in the 2000 range in sales rankings. Best ranking was 1345.

So, did any of this benefit me? (Now, I am talking of my own experience, not everyone's is the same)
In the short-term? Not really. And there is no money to be made being part of a box set, esp if you have to split pennies with 10 or more people. In the long-term? That remains to be seen.

Did I see a bump in sales or rankings on any of my back-list? No.

Did it cause a bump in sales with my new Crimson release, (released Oct 2014) Book #2 in The Wicked Men of Rockland series, HIS WICKED CELTIC KISS? Not that I can see or at least not in a huge way.

So all those thousands of people who bought Summer Heat did not feel compelled to continue with my series? I will bet you more than 85% of readers have this box set on their Kindles along with many, many other box sets, free reads, and 99 cent specials and they haven't been read at all. I only have to look at my own Kindle and there are 3-4 hundred free reads and 99 specials since I got the Kindle in 2011, and in that time, I've read maybe a couple of dozen. All this proves is there a major glut of e-books in whatever guise, and no way someone can read everything on their Kindle unless they read eight hours a day, everyday, until the grave.

So what exactly does box sets do besides make readers who love to one-click—giddy? I've read how box sets are merely a gimmick, a sales ploy to introduce authors no one has ever heard of before. A ploy authors use to 'cheat the system' to slip onto best-selling lists (NYT and USA TODAY) with very little effort. I've read these statements from bloggers and authors alike.

Is it true? Well, there are a lot of people I've never heard of that use the NYT (New York Times) bestseller moniker, but its never factored into my personal book buying anyway. And seeing "NYT Bestselling Author" is no guarantee of a quality product, traditional or self pubbed.

My opinion? Who cares how someone got on the list, kudos for getting there in the first place. The lists themselves now acknowledge e-book sales, so the game has changed anyway. Give congrats to the authors and move on.

Did this box set benefit me at all? In the short-term--no. Well, it did improve my Amazon author ranking. When the box set first came out I did see a flurry of activity at my website and some signed up for my newsletter. In the long-term? Still hard to gauge.

Will I be part of a box set in future?  If a publisher approaches me, and the book is more than 2 years old and not selling, what can it hurt?

In Conclusion: If a box set gets your name out there to a few people who have never heard of you, then bonus. If it slips onto one of the big bestseller lists—double bonus. Otherwise, you can bet the box set is languishing on people's Kindles, and maybe—just maybe— they will get to it.
Someday.

HIS WICKED CELTIC KISS by Karyn Gerrard
Book #2 Wicked Men of Rockland
File Size: 688 KB
Print Length: 181 pages
Publisher: Crimson Romance (October 20, 2014)
This is book 2 in my series, WICKED MEN OF ROCKLAND. Book 1 is THE WICKED BAD

BLURB: It took just one teasing wink and a sexy Irish lilt from bad boy Lorcan Byrne to turn Julie Denison’s world upside down. The problem is, he’s only in town for six months, and happily ever after isn't in this world traveler’s vocabulary.

Julie’s worked hard to get her life in a good place—dropping substantial weight and getting a great job at her friend’s bakery. But this handsome charmer is just as tempting as any of the decadent pastries she sells, and she can’t resist his advances for long. Julie fully expects Lorcan to break her heart—but she’s planning to enjoy every second she can of their explosive chemistry.

After years of danger as a soldier and a spy, Lorcan fled to tiny Rockland, Maryland for some boring downtime. He didn't count on meeting someone who could ignite his libido and soothe his damaged heart, and their passion soon leads to deeper feelings. But can Julie convince Lorcan he has more to offer her than just his wicked Celtic kiss?

Sensuality Level: Sensual




EXCERPT:

“Julie. You look beautiful,” he whispered with awe.The smile slid from her face and her lip trembled. Oh, damn. What did I say? He wasn't lying. He held out his hand, she took it and stood. “You've done your hair. Like ribbons of golden sun.” He dropped her hand and stepped close so her breasts brushed against his chest. He bit back a groan, then framed her face and stroked her flushed cheeks with his thumbs. A sheen of moisture glittered in her beautiful eyes. “Brings out those adorable gold flecks in your lovely eyes, darlin’."

 “Thank you,” she murmured.

Her vulnerable response touched him in a deep uncharted area of his heart. He lowered his head and tilted her face up. “I've been aching to do this since that night at the pub. Indulge me. Only a taste.” His lips barely touched hers, but it sent roaring heat to all parts of his body. Lorcan suddenly had a vision of sprawling her across the counter and plunging himself into her feminine heat. Where did that come from? Just from an innocent kiss? He didn't dare suckle those lips any more or he’d lose all control. He stepped back.

Julie’s eyes were closed and her lips still slightly puckered. A slight whimper of protest came from her when he moved away. "Thank you." Lorcan smiled broadly. “You’re welcome. You’d best prepare yourself, Julie. Whenever we find ourselves alone like this, I will be kissing you. You’ll never know when it’s coming or just how wicked it will be.”

Her eyes snapped opened. “Wicked?”

 “Aye, I've been told I’ve a wicked kiss.” He winked at her. “Shall we head out? Nick recommended this place so if it’s no bloody good, we can blame him.”

Julie smiled and nodded. He took her hand. Simmering flame, bloody hell.

Despite the mutual physical attraction - and a shared past - Nick and Veronica are wary of each other and have protective fences around their hearts.

 Can they break down the barriers of past heartbreak, or is Veronica just a good girl who longs to rub against "the wicked bad"?
