Kissing Monsters Collection (KM Col. #1) & KISSING NIGHTMARES (Kissing Monsters #5): Official cover reveals and release dates

Kissing Monsters Collection (KM Col. #1) & KISSING NIGHTMARES (Kissing Monsters #5): Official cover reveals and release dates

“Her name is Kiss”

 

Dear Monster Kissers ♥️

Today I am excited to reveal the covers and announce the official release dates for two new additions to the Romantic Dark Fantasy Kissing Monsters series!

 

• Kissing Monsters Collection #1 (PAPERBACK EDITION)

As all Kissing Monsters books are being released in eBook format only because the titles are simply too short to be published in print separately, I’m happy to announce that the first four books have been put together and now make up the very first Kissing Monsters Collection! My designer has done a terrific job designing the cover as well as the interior of the book — I honestly couldn’t be happier with the way this book has turned out, and it’s so surreal to see the words of Kiss’s and Zane’s story now printed on actual pages 🙂

 

Kissing Monsters Collection #1 releases in paperback edition for $11.99 on December 8th, 2020 on Amazon

 

Also, mainly for readers who are new to the series, an eBook edition of the Collection will also be released on December 8th and can be pre-ordered:

Amazon for $4.99

Kobo for $4.99

Barnes&Noble for $4.99

 

• KISSING NIGHTMARES (Kissing Monsters #5)

“Half-dreaming, Zane reaches out expecting to find Kiss’s body next to him, to let his hands roam over her soft, round curves and satin skin, his arms aching to pull her closer so he can bury his face in her hair and then sink back into sleep, into a dream in which he can kiss her shoulder, her collarbones, her neck, her cheek, her lips.

He reaches.
But the bed is empty.”

 

The love story of Kiss and Zane continues in this fifth installment of the Kissing Monsters series. On the run from Nyokah and the other angels and trying to find a way to tame Lady Scarlet, they soon cross paths with Skylar… and creatures so dark, the world has never seen them before.

 

KISSING NIGHTMARES releases in ebook edition for $1.99 on December 22nd, 2020

 

• PRE-ORDER NOW:

Amazon for $1.99

Kobo for $1.99

Barnes&Noble for $1.99

 

 

These two books will be my final publications of 2020 — all other sequels of both the Kissing Monsters series and the Insomnia Saga are scheduled for 2021 (possibly even 2022, but let’s not think that far ahead yet, lol).

I hope you’re all looking forward to KISSING NIGHTMARES and/or the Collection ♥️ If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line!

KISSING GHOSTS (Kissing Monsters #4): Official cover reveal and release date

KISSING GHOSTS (Kissing Monsters #4): Official cover reveal and release date

For a wild moment Scarlet considered brushing her mouth against Julian’s—something urged her on, a need she couldn’t say she ever felt before.
Perhaps it was his beauty.
Or perhaps it was the mystery that surrounded him, something that told her there was more to him than met the eye.
Something broken.

 

 

Hi there, monster kissers~

I hereby present to you (once more, in case you are reading this blogpost through email, which doesn’t show the post’s featured image, sadly)… the cover for book 4 in the Upper YA Dark Fantasy Romance Kissing Monsters series, entitled KISSING GHOSTS:

 

 

If I say so myself, I am completely IN LOVE with it. The color is absolutely gorgeous and I just love how this cover’s atmosphere perfectly fits the book. It somehow looks both a bit spooky and melancholic, which is exactly how writing KISSING GHOSTS felt to me ❤️

 

KISSING GHOSTS releases in ebook edition for $1.99 on November 17th, 2020

 

• PRE-ORDER NOW:

Amazon for $1.99

Kobo for $1.99

 

In case some of you haven’t read book 3 yet, I’ve decided not to share the blurb in this blogpost — but if you already have and are curious, check it out here! (Simply scroll all the way down~)

 

This is it for now! I hope you’ll all look forward to book 4 — I think it’ll help us all remain in a Halloween-ish mood for a bit longer 😉 If you have any questions or just have something to say, feel free to drop me a line!

My books are available EVERYWHERE once more!

My books are available EVERYWHERE once more!

Hey there, shadow darlings!

 

A few months ago — in June — I decided to remove the Kissing Monsters series and the Insomnia Saga ebooks from sites such as Kobo and Barnes&Noble, all so I could enroll them in Amazon’s “KDP Select” program. With my books exclusively for sale on Amazon, it would mean they would also be available on Kindle Unlimited, where members can read an unlimited (hey hey~ xD) amount of books for, I believe, around $10 a month. I figured this would give more people the opportunity to discover my books without them having to buy them, which could possibly boost future sales.

What I did not realize at the time, however, even after careful research (enthusiasm makes one blind, I guess), was that this gave Amazon way too much influence on my promotion — mainly, how I wish to promote my books to readers. In a nutshell, I find out that as long as my books were enrolled in KDP Select I wasn’t allowed to give away my ebooks for free through — for example — my website or email. I wouldn’t even be allowed to host online events in which people could win one of my books for free. Also, I wasn’t allowed to reach out to readers and give them a free copy, because the rules state that you can only ask “professional reviewers” for a review. I could, however, pay lots of money to Amazon to use their special “Amazon advertisements”. Which sounds great and all, but in all honesty I’m rather cynical when it comes to that kind of impersonal promotion. I’m more of a believer of word-of-mouth-marketing!

So to be honest, I wasn’t too charmed by all this. Four years ago I made the decision to go indie because I was sick of others telling me how to write my books, how many titles I was allowed to publish in a year, and even how to promote them; I went indie because I love the freedom of it. Sure, it’s hard sometimes, because you don’t have a publisher behind you to plug your book and push your sales — but the freedom is totally worth it and what I like about the hard work is that once it pays off… well. That just feels damn awesome.

Anyway, I’m going off topic here: For these reasons I have removed my books from KDP’s program last week and published them again on Smashwords. I can now happily announce that both the Kissing Monsters series and Insomnia Saga ebooks are again available on Amazon and Kobo, Barnes&Noble, and of course Smashwords.

 

I hope my decision of last summer hasn’t affected any of my readers negatively, making it harder for you to obtain my books. If I did, I apologize! As an author dreaming of sharing her stories with readers from all over the world, I keep looking for more effective ways to promote my books. I thought this could be it, and hey, maybe after some time it would have helped, but there were simply too many restrictions.

 

The pages of the Insomnia Saga and Kissing Monsters series have been updated and the links to the stores have been added to the information column on the right (or if you’re on your tablet, underneath)! I still have to add Barnes&Noble to the list, but it tends to take some time for ebooks to show up there. Soon, though!

I hope you’ll all understand 🙂 Have a lovely day! ❤️

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING SHADOWS (Kissing Monsters 2)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING SHADOWS (Kissing Monsters 2)

“Come home with me.”


At that, Kiss tilts her head back to look at him, startled.
Zane gazes back at her—and there it is again, that rawness from those days they spent together, that honesty, that realness that was never part of the game they were playing back then.
Their emotions, at least, had been true.
But she has changed.

 

Hello there, shadow darlings! ?

It is finally there; the anticipated sequel to KISSING MONSTERS (Dark Fantasy Romance), which released earlier this year on Valentine’s Day. In KISSING SHADOWS the story of Kiss and Zane continues; they found love, but shadows are gathering, threatening to tear them apart as they both have to face impossible choices.

 

KISSING SHADOWS is available on Amazon worldwide in eBook edition; get it here for $0.99!

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• KISSING SHADOWS (Kissing Monsters #2)

“Come home with me.”
At that, Kiss tilts her head back to look at him, startled.
Zane gazes back at her—and there it is again, that rawness from those days they spent together, that honesty, that realness that was never part of the game they were playing back then.
Their emotions, at least, had been true.
But she has changed.

 

Kiss has left.

Zane thought he would no longer know loneliness—but he was wrong, and now he roams the earth kissing monsters into angels. Being a Gifted One, humans no longer recoil from him but instead are drawn to him like moths to a flame, begging for a touch of his lips; yet with every touch, all that he’s kissing are shadows.

He wants Kiss back. He craves her love.
But she has changed.

As he discovers the truth about her, Zane sets out to find a way to tame the beast in her heart, so he can once again claim her kisses—without turning her into an angel.

Yet as both monsters and angels try to come between them,
Zane and Kiss have to make a choice:
To give up on each other. Or to fight instead.

 


 

I actually wrote KISSING SHADOWS about a month after releasing KISSING MONSTERS — to be honest, I’ve written it during the first week my country officially went into lock-down because of COVID-19. Feeling anxious and having a little bit of trouble concentrating on tasks that first week, I was so glad to have this project to focus on. Writing KISSING SHADOWS has been nothing but sheer fun, and I hope you’ll experience the same reading it ?

 

Thank you so much for reading, and don’t forget — book 3, KISSING SCARLET, will release September 29th this year! 😉

Feel free to drop me a line anytime; on my blog, on social media, through email; I always love hearing from my readers ❤️ Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d consider adding the book to your Goodreads!

 

Again, thank you — and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Mad World | The Insomnia Files paperback release postponed

Mad World | The Insomnia Files paperback release postponed

Hello everyone,

It’s a mad world out there, isn’t it?

Schools and universities have been closed, people who can are supposed to work from home, and even restaurants, cinemas and other shops and places had to close their doors. Barely anyone uses public transportation, and the streets are eerily quiet.

Really, I had no idea the world could be this silent.

When I woke up this morning, all I heard was birdsong — while I’m used to hearing people, mainly parents yelling at their kids to get a move on. This morning? Nothing.

It’s scary to think that a thing like a virus can shut down our world and lives like this… and meanwhile, nature doesn’t seem to care; the sky is blue, the sun is shining, the weather is lovely. And yet, I hardly dare stepping outside, because suddenly the outside world seems menacing to me, every person you meet a hazard.

Like I said on social media last weekend, my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook feeds are filled with anxiety, people panicking, and others arguing whether we’re overreacting or not. I myself am a rather cautious person, so I must admit I feel a sense of anxiety as well — and while I’ve always been a bit of a hermit, it’s even worse now. I’m staying indoors as much as possible, and don’t even risk going out for a run. I did last week, though, but the atmosphere was strange; everyone was watching the other, and I got the sense everyone just wanted to get indoors as soon as possible. Myself included, to be honest! 😉

And on that note…

 

2000_MU_TheInsomniaFiles

• The Insomnia Files paperback release postponed

Some might think I’m overreacting and that this precaution isn’t necessary, but I’ve made my decision anyway: on April 7th the short story collection The Insomnia Files (Insomnia Saga 1.5) would be released in both paperback and eBook edition, but I have decided to postpone the paperback release to later this year.

I publish my paperbacks with Amazon, and looking at the fact that my latest book, INSOMNIA, was first printed in Poland, then shipped to Germany, and then again shipped to the Netherlands to get it to me, I simply don’t feel comfortable placing any orders online for the time being.

 

>>> The eBook release of The Insomnia Files, however, will still be published on April 7th! <<<

 

I even thought of postponing the release entirely, but I read a Tweet last weekend in which someone said that the world needs creative people the most right now, and so I realized that publishing a new eBook would actually be a nice thing since everyone is mainly staying indoors these days 🙂 (In any case, I know I am really enjoying reading and other indoors activities at the moment, now more than ever.)

So, if you really want to get your hands on The Insomnia Files paperback edition, I apologize for the delay in the release, but I believe you should do whatever you feel comfortable with, which is why I made this decision. As soon as things normalize again (and I really hope that’s sooner than later), I will publish the paperback ASAP — however, the eBook will be available in any format you prefer in many online (book)stores ?

In anticipation to the release (which will be in 3 weeks!), I’ll be sharing sneak peeks of both Kay’s short story as well as Alain’s, which are both included in this collection! To find out more about The Insomnia Files, check out this page! (Third in list!)

 

• Stay well, stay safe

With this post I also wanted to check up on you guys; how are you doing, and how are you experiencing everything right now? I hope you’re well and in good health 🙂

Stay well, stay safe.

(I even came up with a cool mantra for myself: KEEP CALM AND WRITE ON. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?!)

 

Wishing you all the best of health ❤️

— Lynn

The Insomnia Files & NOCTURNE (Insomnia Saga #1.5 + #2): Cover reveals and release dates

Dear Sleepwalkers,

Today is an exciting day (well, I sure think so 😉 ), because I’ll be officially revealing the covers of the next Insomnia Saga releases, The Insomnia Files and NOCTURNE, as well as announcing the release dates!

Read on for more ?

 

2000_MU_TheInsomniaFiles

• The Insomnia Files (Insomnia Saga #1.5)

As you can see, the cover for The Insomnia Files is based on the cover created for the short story JODI COLLINS, as that is one of the stories featured in this collection!

 

The Insomnia Files contains three short stories written from three different perspectives, diving deeper into the Insomnia Saga universe.

FILE #1 tells the story of Jodi Collins and takes place four years prior to INSOMNIA: Thirteen years old, Jodi has just started working for the Miller Academy. As she’s sent on a mission on a dark, wintery night, she has no choice but to confront the demons of the Night—and fight them.

In FILE #2 fifteen-year old Kay Somnus is about to take his final exam to become the youngest Summoner in history… but in order to succeed, he will have to pretend—and believe—he is someone he’s not, and forever deny himself his true power.

Alain Somnus, the very first Summoner of Light, is the voice of FILE #3. Hundreds of years ago, he opened a gate and allowed dark powers to spill in that would change the world forever… creating the darkest secret ever kept. Haunted by nightmares and his failure to protect the only girl who had ever managed to touch his heart, he opened the Somnus Academy—but could he live with the lies?

 

>> The Insomnia Files (Insomnia Saga #1.5) releases in eBook and paperback edition on April 7th 2020! You can preorder the eBook on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords <<<

 

 

2000_MU_Nocturne

• NOCTURNE (Insomnia Saga #2)

Here it is! The cover for the second installment in the Insomnia Saga, NOCTURNE; I already saw it last month, and I’ve been in love with it ever since ❤️ It perfectly captures the mood of the sequel to INSOMNIA, and I absolutely love the colors. My designer rules 🙂

If you want to read the blurb, please visit this page (scroll down, and then you’ll find it!); I’m not sharing it in this post, because it contains various spoilers regarding the ending of INSOMNIA. So, for those who haven’t read or finished INSOMNIA yet, please tread carefully 😉

 

>> NOCTURNE (Insomnia Saga #2) releases in eBook and paperback edition on June 23th 2020! You can preorder the eBook on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords <<<

 


 

That’s it for now! I hope you enjoy, will enjoy, or have enjoyed reading INSOMNIA, and that you’re looking forward to these next installments!

The Insomnia Files is great for those who’d like a bit more background information about Jodi, Kay, and Alain, whose name is mentioned various times in INSOMNIA. By writing these stories, I, as a writer, felt like I got to understand my characters even better, especially Alain Somnus ❤️

NOCTURNE, the sequel to INSOMNIA, picks up the story about three months later, and is written from dual perspective — Jodi’s voice returns, and is joined by Kay’s, as we dive even deeper into his past and personality. Also, Jodi has some things to deal with, and I think I got to flesh out her character even more in this book, especially by adding Kay’s point of view and the way he perceives her and everything else.

I’m already looking forward to releasing these installments!

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING MONSTERS — free eBook!

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING MONSTERS — free eBook!

“You can be more — so much more than a demon’s servant; so much more than an instrument of shadows.”

 

Today is the official release of KISSING MONSTERS, a dark yet romantic short story written for Valentine’s Day — and best of all? It’s a FREE download ?

Find out what it’s about…:

 

“When you kiss a monster, you turn them into angels.
If you’d kiss the Collector, he would turn you into a monster.
So… what happens if you would kiss a human?”

Her name is Kiss.

She travels the world to find monsters to kiss and turn them into angels—for the world has too many monsters and too few angels, she believes; too many shadows and too few stars in the sky.

But then she crosses paths with Zane, a young human man, a lost and lonely cello player, who tells her about the Collector—a monster who would turn her into a demon if she’d kiss him.

The Collector wants and claims everything that catches his attention.
And so, he starts hunting for Kiss.

Will she run? Will she stay and fight?
Or could Zane, a mere human, save her instead?

 

>>> KISSING MONSTERS is a free eBook! Find your preferred download link here <<<


 

The concept for this story had been in my head for several months, and early January I suddenly realized that Valentine’s Day was coming up and that this story would be perfect for it 🙂 Perhaps it’s not your usual Valentine’s tale, because no, it’s not a sugary story filled with roses and blushes, and yes, it involves actual monsters. But don’t worry, plenty of kisses are shared ?

 

I hope you all enjoy reading KISSING MONSTERS! I had a great time writing it, so I hope it’ll bring you joy as well 😀

(Don’t worry if you don’t have the time to read this on Valentine’s Day — you could read it any time, really, because monsters and romance are never out of season, right?)

INSOMNIA | Officially Publish-ready!

INSOMNIA | Officially Publish-ready!

This is just a quick in-between update concerning INSOMNIA‘s release next week! Normally I save these kinds of things for my monthly writing updates, but I felt like sharing a small peek behind the scenes with you guys today 🙂

 

JAN'20_WritingUpdate

If you’ve read my January Writing Update, you know that my team of beta-readers and I were working hard last month to edit the manuscript of INSOMNIA for the final time. Then last week I sat down with my designer — who honestly helps me with everything, concerning the eBook, the paperback (interior design and cover), my website, book trailers, you name it (yes, she’s bloody amazing, that one).

However, this morning we wrapped things up, which means that everything is ready for the official release of INSOMNIA!

Ever since 2020 has started, we’ve been working at this crazy, relentless pace, because so much had to be done before the 11th of February, which is the release day of INSOMNIA. I’ve also been working through weekends, editing, writing, scheduling things, but after finishing all of the work today, it looks like things are about to settle down a bit.

Well, “settle down”—there’s still much work to be done; of course, INSOMNIA releases next week, and I even have another small release planned for Valentine’s Day (more info coming soon!), which means posting blog posts, sharing promotional ads on social media, and lots of other small things. Also, there are even more releases planned for the nearby future and I already have the release dates, so there is much I need to share with you all 🙂

 

What can you expect the following weeks?

INSOMNIA release (eBook & paperback)

• a Valentine’s Day short story release (free eBook)

INSOMNIA‘s official book trailer and several teasers (the book trailer will be up on YouTube next Tuesday, and the following weeks after I’ll be sharing some cool teasers! Stay tuned and subscribe here)

The Insomnia Files and NOCTURNE release date announcements

NOCTURNE cover reveal

• special INSOMNIA blog posts (short posts in which we’ll dive deeper into the Insomnia Saga universe, explaining about the Summoners, Light spells, Nightprowlers, the fictional city of Somnus, and my philosophy and inspiration behind the concepts)

 

I believe that’s about it! (what, is that all? :P) I don’t think 2020 is going to settle down at all, although I will be sailing some calmer waters after next week, when I’ll have the opportunity again to focus on editing manuscripts and writing new projects; I’m looking forward to it!

 

BEHIND THE SCENES SEP 2018 - Brainstorming

It kind of feels anticlimactic now that all the work has been done, which is actually the main reason I wrote this update; it just felt good to write it all down, to create an overview of all the things my team and I have done and I’m about to do during the next couple of months ? I feel tired as well as excited!

It’s only February, but already 2020 feels like an awesome year to me, especially creative-wise, and the entire year is filled with releases and other things I’m already looking forward to. Gotta love the positive vibes ⭐️

All right, guys, this is it! Are you also looking forward to the release of INSOMNIA? And what cool things have you been doing the last few weeks? Tell me!

 

BE CREEPY. STAY FREAKY.

It’s 2020: A battle of Light and Night

It’s 2020: A battle of Light and Night

First of all…

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

 

Here we are, the first of January; the very first day of 2020.

Let’s take a deep breath. Because, I mean, this actually is a pretty special day, right? Yeah, okay, every new day can mean a brand new start; every single day you can decide to do something you’ve never done before or always wanted to do. You don’t need an actual “new year” to do that.

And yet, I can’t help but feel excited about the fact that it is now officially 2020, because I have some really cool plans for this year—and today, I’d like to tell you guys a little bit about them 🙂

• First release: INSOMNIA (Insomnia Saga #1)

My very first release this year will be INSOMNIA, the first official installment of the Insomnia Saga.

I’ve been working on this project since the summer of 2017, so I’m really excited that the series finally is going to get an official “lift off”, so to speak, and that I can share this dark story of mine with all of you. I feel like INSOMNIA is going to be a great first release to start this year with—for me, anyway. I just love this story and my characters to pieces, and I hope you guys will too!

 

INSOMNIA will be released on February 11th 2020

 

If you’re curious, you can download the prequel short story JODI COLLINS for free, an eBook that also includes a sneak peek of the first few chapters of INSOMNIA!

 

INSOMNIA is available for pre-order worldwide (eBook only) on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. Check it out!

 

On the day of release, INSOMNIA will also be available in paperback edition!

 

• More INSOMNIA SAGA releases on the way…

This year I’ll be focusing entirely on the Insomnia Saga, which means there are many more releases on the way! I can’t give actual dates yet, but to give you an idea of what you’ll be able to expect…:

The Insomnia Files, a collection of short stories accompanying INSOMNIA, will be released April 2020 (both eBook and paperback edition)

NOCTURNE, the second installment of the Insomnia Saga, is planned for a June 2020 release (both eBook and paperback edition)

The Nocturne Files, a collection of short stories accompanying  NOCTURNE, is expected September 2020 (both eBook and paperback edition)

ORIGINS, the third installment of the Insomnia Saga, will be published December 2020 (both eBook and paperback edition)

 

I’m incredibly excited about all this, and I hope you guys will be with me during this journey through the Insomnia Saga universe 🙂 There will also be a fourth installment to the series, entitled SOMNUS, which will be released in 2021 — but hey, let’s focus on 2020 first, yeah? 😉

 

Will you be fighting alongside Jodi and Kay in their battle of Light and Night?

 

Well, in short, this is what 2020 is going to look like for me. In January I’ll be working on both The Insomnia Files and The Nocturne Files, and I expect to start on ORIGINS in February! I can’t wait 😀

 

I hope you guys all have a wonderful, productive, and fun year as well. Sure, every year will be filled with ups and downs, but let’s focus on the ups instead — negative vibes won’t serve you after all; it’ll only attract more negativity. Or should I say darkness? To use some Insomnia Saga lingo — summon your Light, your Inner Strength, and hold on to it; use it to fight the shadows.

Let’s all work hard to make our dreams come true 🙂

 

BE CREEPY. STAY FREAKY.
