Weekly Roundup of News in My Publishing World w/e Oct 25th @KarynGerrard #Sale #NewRelease

A roundup of news in my tiny part of the publishing world. So, what's new?

Going forward, I am dealing only with two publishers, Crimson Romance and Kensington/Lyrical.

So far, I only have the name of my self-pub venture, KG PUBLISHING. Next step is to get my EIN.


I have since found out the contract I signed in July 2014 for Kensington for Bold Seduction (historical), will not be published until Sept 2015 (tentative date) *Jaw Drop* So, seems I will be moving forward with self-publishing after all and at a quicker pace than I had intended.

In fact, I am editing a historical novella now and hoping to self-pub in early 2015. More later~

His Wicked Celtic Kiss released Oct 20th with Crimson Romance, See below for blurb and links. Also there are a few days left in the 99 cent sale for my two cover model books. Info below.

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?

MY VAMPIRE COVER MODEL

Words: approx 22,000

Release date: August 10th 2012

BLURB: 

Life changed for Deanna Brooks the night she attended a book signing for her aunt's best-selling paranormal romance series. There she met Burney "Burn the Cover God" Sheridan. The model for the fictional vampire hero, Burn is beyond handsome with an overabundance of Irish charm. 
Burn Sheridan, a man with scores of past lives, has a secret: He really is a vampire. Meeting Deanna was agony because for the first time in over two hundred years, Burn experiences the rarest of vampiric needs, the "mate of his soul" connection. Keeping people at a distance had been Burn's existence for centuries, but Deanna makes this pledge of staying detached impossible. 
Many obstacles lie ahead and the biggest of all may be Burn himself.   Can Deanna and Burn overcome them and find lasting love?

MY HIGHLANDER COVER MODEL 
~ Time Travel/Fantasy/Contemporary/erotic romance

Decadent Publishing Release April 9th 2013

Approx 22,230 words

BLURB:

Skye Bancroft is a hard-working assistant art director at Night Moon Publishers. Dealing with the occasional spoiled and egocentric model is part of her job description. She did not count on one so delusional to think he was a Scotsman from the highlands of 1814.

Time for a roundup in my tiny corner of the publishing world.
Cailin Thorburn is every woman’s dream—a highland warrior, who is fierce, passionate and wields a very large sword.  Rendered unconscious during battle, he awakens in another place, time, and seemingly in another man’s body. Was it all a dream? His convincing the bonnie lass, Skye, he is Cailin, the highland warrior, and not a pampered cover model is a daunting task.

Can an extraordinary man from another world prove he is who he claims? Will their attraction be enough or is Cailin just a highlander cover model?


Headdesk moment of the past several days? Where do I start?  To a NYT bestselling male author making excuses for sleazy 60 year old white guys who look at child porn to the YA author who tracked down a reviewer who gave her book 1 star by showing up at her doorstep to the media outlet that posted this disturbing, stalking diatribe for public consumption. To the elitist authors who will not just shut the F up about reviews, reviewers, and how everyone is out to get them. No, I am not mentioning names and providing links, they have received enough attention. I'm not adding to their on-line visibility.

 Insanity. The world is going mad.

And on that happy note, keep writing, keep reading, and keep cool~
