News Updates, Hot Reads, Hot Food, and Hot Guys w/e Aug 22 @KarynGerrard #UpcomingReleases #Sale


Hello! I am rather discouraged with the whole newsletter concept. Mailchimp is a bitch to use. Even when you think the newsletter looks great by sending a test copy to yourself, you send it out and the writing all overlaps *headdesk* I don't have the time or inclination to figure it out.

So, instead, I am going to post updates on my website. There'a a strange concept! Look to the top right of this site and sign up by email to receive updates.

I laid low most of July, I had editing and writing to accomplish, and YAY! I did it. Just finishing up a polish on a manuscript I hope to submit later this week, a contemporary. More info to come.

On August 31st, Summer of Love box set will release with Crimson Romance. It is available for about 6 months and HIS WICKED CELTIC KISS (Wicked Men of Rockland #2) is included. All contemporary romances. Though I primarily write historicals, I also write the occasional contemporary. Here's your chance to check one out! Special price of 99 cents (not sure how long that will last) Snap it up!

It's up for pre-order HERE: Amazon/Amazonuk/Amazonca/Amazonau/KOBO/iTunes



On September 1st, BOLD SEDUCTION releases. This is the first book of my The Hornsby Brothers series, and my first book with Kensington Publishing digital arm, Lyrical Press.

A few early reviews are in and it already has a 4.70 ranking at Goodreads (as of this writing) I am pleased. TO those who reviewed, thank you! It is a historical set in the later Victorian age, and a sensual read. And emotional. I hope all enjoy it.

A little back story. This had a different title, and I was offered a contract from Ellora's Cave in March 2014 for it, but my gut alarm told me not to accept. Glad I didn't considering what's going on.

I sent it to Kensington and very glad I did. They liked it! As a result, I've been offered multiple contracts.


The three contracts have been finalized, and THE VICAR'S FROZEN HEART (The Hornsby Brothers #2) will be releasing March 1, 2016. BELOVED MONSTER (The Ravenswood Chronicles #1) Sept 15th 2016, and BELOVED BEAST (The Ravenswood Chronicles #2) February 28th 2017.

Beloved Beast has yet to be written, and Kensington also expressed an interest in the final book of The Hornsby Brothers (also not yet written) so, it seems I am a full-time writer now. Yikes!

There will be a release blast with Tasty Book Tours Sept 1-3rd for Bold Seduction and Kensington has promotion planned as well, so gird your loins, as my social media will be inundated in the coming weeks.

I received official notice I will be given the rights back to The Blind Cupid from Decadent Publishing on December 1st. I am working on the story now, it will be revised, re-edited and re-released in Dec or Jan as THE SPINSTER AND MR.GLOVER. So far, more than 6000 words added. This will be self-published under my KG Publishing banner. Cover art coming soon from Cora Graphics.

HOT READS


Dark Skye by Kresley Cole (Immortals After Dark #14)

A very good read, though it seemed at times a rehash of other couples in the Immortal After Dark series.

I never checked out Kresley Cole's contemporaries, and I probably won't. I did take one of Gena Showalter's contemps out of the library and it was a DNF. Couldn't get into her angel series either, though I still read Lords of the Underworld.

I also tried Larrisa Ione's vampire series and that book was tossed in my "Take to the second hand store" bag. It proves the adage that just because you like a certain series from an author, does not mean you will enjoy every book they write.

Back to Dark Skye, It was an entertaining read, and I stand in awe of the world Kresley Cole has created. Recommended!

  • HOT GUYS

    I always feel weird when I drool over guys young enough to be my son (if I even had kids) But since I don't, I get over it quick enough.*wink*

    Cole Monahan is a 22 year old male model from  Tennessee, who played sports in high school, then became a fitness model by whittling down his body into Greek god proportions. (look at that back!) Also works for Elite Model Management.

    Imagine you take Charlie Hunnam and Chris Pratt and mix them in a blender. In fact, in pic below, his expression is pure Chris Pratt. (at least to me)

    Cole! Check the Buzzfeed drool piece on his hot self. HERE and an interview HERE
