NO LONGER AVAILABLE: Black Desire and The Riding Crop @KarynGerrard #RightsReversal #BackList




My backlist shrinks further! Having met the terms of the contracts, two books from Evernight Publishing have been returned to me. The free read (Only available at certain vendors, not Amazon) The Riding Crop, and Book 2 of my 4 book paranormal series, Black Desire.

So what is the plan? First off, these are erotic, and in the case of The Riding Crop, BDSM and more, and I just do not write this heat level any longer. I wrote a sequel to The Riding Crop, A Riding Crop for Two, and I will be able to get the rights back next year. When I do, it is on my long to-do list and I will someday revise, combine the two, and probably self-publish it.

As for Black Desire? I lost all interest in paranormal, even in my reading. I still half-heartedly follow Gena Showalter's main series Lords of the Underworld, and on the fence about continuing Kresley Cole's Immortals series, so this book is yet another being shoved on the back burner. I stopped reading JR Ward a few releases ago. It appears in my case when I lose interest in reading a certain genre or heat level, it carries over to my writing as well.

I cannot request book 3 and 4 until next year. Book 5 is written. Half of book six is written. Then...poof. Lost interest. It happens. Again, yet another project hanging in the wind. Do I finish and self pub under my second pen name? (currently not being used) Do I allow my agent to shop it around? Do I want to add yet another genre to this pen name? Decisions, Decisions.

The good thing about being hybrid is I have options and am in no hurry to explore them right now. So on the burner they go with a growing pile of other stories

Meanwhile, I will soldier on fulfilling my contracts, working away at The Copper and Madam for re-release.

Cheers!

 Even at a young age Karyn’s storytelling skills were apparent, thrilling her fellow Girl Guides with off-the-cuff horror stories around the campfire. A multi-published author, she loves to write sensual historicals, particularly in the Victorian era. She also writes contemporaries. Tortured heroes are an absolute must. 

 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 and loving support keeps her moving forward.
