NEW! Revised Edition of Bold Seduction by @ KarynGerrard #ComingSoon #Historical #CoverReveal #amwriting

Okay, so what is going on? What is wrong with the 2015 edition published with Kensington/Lyrical Press?
Nothing, in theory, but there is an explanation.

BOLD SEDUCTION was my first book with Kensington's digital line. It was originally a standalone story. When Kensington contacted me to see what else I had, I was writing THE VICAR'S FROZEN HEART. So I pitched it as book 2 in a series. Sold! But by the time I got around to pitching the third and final book, too much time had gone by, so Kensington passed, (though they did offer me contracts for another series) At the time, I didn't have an agent, what did I know about 'length of time' between books?

The publisher said I could release book 3 myself. Cool. But because of real life and contract obligations I wasn't able to get around to finishing book 3 until recently. THE MARQUESS OF SECRETS is releasing April 23rd.

So, I wanted to link all three books as a series on Amazon. Nope. Because there is two different publishers. (me and Kensington) Amazon said Kensington had to okay it. Kensington said Amazon had to okay it. I've seen other authors get series linked before (mix of publisher and indie) but I wasn't in the mood for a drawn-out argument.

Best to have the complete series under my control is the conclusion I came to. Besides, my writing has changed so much since 2014 when I wrote this. So I asked for the rights back. BOLD SEDUCTION will be disappearing from vendors in the next week or two. I've also asked for THE VICAR'S FROZEN HEART back as well. More to come on that.

The new cover is above, and I am working on revisions now. BOLD SEDUCTION will be back soon.

I have two other series with Kensington, they are staying put. I have no plans to ask for rights back anytime soon, if at all.

The future? As far as traditional publishing, I have no idea. Not even thinking about it, for I have enough on my plate on the indie side of my writing.

Moving forward!
