I now write sensual which I suppose is classified as more mainstream, whatever that means.
So as I slowly get back the rights to my early erotic romance releases from Evernight Publishing and Decadent Publishing, a decision had to be made. Do I keep the heat level for some stories and change it for others? Yeah, I think I will do exactly that.
I rec'd the rights back for That Christmas Feeling. Thanks Evernight! So I will be re-doing this hot short story to be more mainstream and also lengthen it (from 8900 words to about 13,000) I hope to release it later in the fall and it will be a KU selection, only available at Amazon. New cover already ordered!
Since I will also be eligible to get back the first book in my paranormal series this fall, I decided to keep the hot heat level for those and release it under a pen name I haven't used in 1.5 years.
The surprise reveal! I have a few releases under the pen name Karly Germain. Click HERE to check out the blog. I wrote a handful of MM books published with Evernight. I now have changed the pen name to also encompass MF and MMF in addition to MM. I will use this pen name to re-release the paranormal series as it reverts back to me. The titles will be changed. And I have a completed book that has been sitting on my computer for three years that is part of the series that will be revised and released at some point.
This pen name will be secondary, not used that often, and when it is it will be to self-pub re-releases (or the rare new release) under my KG Publishing banner.
I have a lot on my plate. A lot of re-releases to rework and revise and also new releases under Karyn Gerrard. But now I have re-branded myself and split myself in two, my work will have a more cohesive look (and heat level) for each pen name. Karyn Gerrard is my main pen name. I will continue to write sensual historicals and contemporaries. There is a lot coming up for both pen names in the next two years.
