Weekly Roundup of News in my Publishing World @KarynGerrard Oct 4/2014

So what happened this week? Ellora's Cave (erotic romance publisher) is suing a blog, Dear Author, and the owner of that blog, with the pen name of Jane Litte for defamation. To say the shite has hit the fan blades and spattered all over the wall is an understatement. Not only in the romance community but in many areas of the publishing and legal world at large. Story already made the LA Times.

This will not end pretty. Personally? (yes, my opinion) I think EC made a epic miscalculation here and will suffer big time for it. Want to know more? Google, search in Twitter Feeds, use hashtag #notchilled. Meanwhile, I think Bugs and Sam sum up the internet and social media in general for me.

This week saw the release of WILD PITCH co-written with Gayl Taylor.

This was previously published in another incarnation as The Hero Sandwich, but it got a rewrite and a mega-edit.

Released in Decadent Publishing's 1Night Stand line. Cougar/Erotic/Menage (no FF interaction)


There is a sale on my two cover model books with Decadent Publishing. for the entire month of October. My Vampire Cover Model made the All Romance newsletter on Wednesday and as a result made it to #8 on All Romance's top 50 bestseller list! And hit all 3 of its category bestsellers lists as well. Very glad some bought it and hope they enjoy. :)





His Wicked Celtic Kiss is up for pre-order at Amazon and 20% off the list price!  Release date is October 20th

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?

Heat Level: Sensual

This is book 2 in my series, WICKED MEN OF ROCKLAND. Book 1 is THE WICKED BAD


No word on BOLD SEDUCTION (historical) as yet. I did hear from my editor to expect 1st round edits by the middle of the month. Can't wait to share this story with everyone. My first beta, virgin but very sexy hero!

This is set in the later Victorian era (my fav to write in) And I am interested to work with a new publisher, especially the digital arm of Kensington Publishing. When I have more info, I will share.

Over at Erotic Romance News blog we spotlighted some wonderful books this week! Drop by and check them out, some have giveaways that may still be active!
