Author Interview over at M.S. Wordsmith | A Little Bit About Me

Dearest Sleepwalkers, Monster Kissers, and Wild Strangers from the Sea,

This week is starting off strong, as today I am featured over at the blog of M.S. Wordsmith with a very fun interview in which I share some things about me, tell about my writing process, and talk about my favorite authors and books!

 

Read the interview here~

 

Well, that is it for me! I’m going back to work, as this week I will be very busy preparing THE DEEP OF HIM (The Sea of Her #4) for its release on December 21st. Only a few weeks left until the story of Leilani and Keanu continues — and let me tell you, in this book their journey is taking them to dark, dark places…

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Origins Files (Insomnia Saga 3.5)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Origins Files (Insomnia Saga 3.5)

“The Night Angels will have their revenge.
And you will meet the destiny you deserve, Summoner of Light.”

 

Dearest Sleepwalkers,

At last, here’s another new release in the series of the Insomnia Saga: The Origins Files, book 3.5, the third short story collection that connects to the historic story lines referred to in ORIGINS.

The Origins Files contains a short story written from Orion’s perspective, and a novella in which the story continues from the eyes of Alain, his best friend Frankie, Orion once more, and a brand new character called Eleanora… who prefers to be called “El”, actually. If you’d like to meet her, grab your own ebook or paperback copy here!:

 

The Origins Files ebook edition is available for $1.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Smashwords
Barnes&Noble
GooglePlay

 

and can be found in paperback edition for $8.99 on:

Amazon

 

 

Watch the book teasers:

 

 

• The Origins Files (Insomnia Saga #3.5)

The Origins Files contains a short story and a novella, told from the perspectives of Alain Somnus—the first Summoner of Light to ever rise—, Orion Fleming—the founder of the Night Angel Cult—, Frank Miller—a young man struggling to find his place in the world, no matter how much it has changed with the arrival of the Prowlers of Night—, and Eleanora Smith—who moves through the night like a thief and dreams of vengeance.

“The Night Angels will have their revenge.
And you will meet the destiny you deserve, Summoner of Light.”

In File #1 Orion Fleming remembers when he first met Nilisa Solovey, a wealthy girl who never should have had eyes for a poor boy like him, and yet fell in love with. Now the mother of his child, she has offered herself to be the Queen’s human host… but is Orion prepared to sacrifice the love of his life—or will desperation and heartache cause him to reach out to the world’s strongest Summoner, Alain Somnus… and betray the Night Angels?

The story of love and betrayal, secrets and guilt continues in File #2 as Alain finds out that Nilisa has given her body to the Queen of the Prowlers of Night, and he decides to step in as the savior the people believe him to be—though not without the help of Frank and his other friends, while having to deal with a young woman called El who knows more than she should.
His secret is on the verge of being exposed.
And the greatest battle he has ever fought is awaiting him, long-limbed and dark as night… and disguised as a girl of shadows.

 


 

The writing experience of each of these Insomnia Saga short story collections is a special thing for me. It’s actually quite different from the tales I usually write, as the history of this series isn’t a happy one, and so it forces me to explore darker themes and settle for sad endings, rather than the (bitter)sweet ones I tend to choose — simply because that makes me feel good.

Just as was the case with the previous two collections, The Origins Files was once again interesting to write, and maybe even a little challenging, because it was so sinister and sorrowful. Still, I really enjoyed myself, and in some cases I believe it’s fine to step out of your comfort zone for a bit.

The cast of this series is ever growing, and I hope you all feel just as connected to the new voices of Orion and El as I do. Please enjoy reading this latest installment to the series ❤️

 

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment down below, on social media, through email; I’ll get back to you ASAP 🙂 Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d consider adding the book to your Goodreads!

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: ORIGINS (Insomnia Saga 3)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: ORIGINS (Insomnia Saga 3)

The first step of the ritual has been completed.
Only two remain. And time is slipping.

 

 

Hi there Sleepwalkers,

The day has finally arrived! The third full-length installment in the Insomnia Saga, ORIGINS, releases today in ebook and paperback edition! The battle against Annabelle, Damian, the other Nightprowlers and the Soulless Army continues as Jodi and Kay find themselves in a race against the clock. Every minute counts. Darkness is gathering.

Could their Light be strong enough to save the world?

 

ORIGINS is available in paperback for $14.99 on:

Amazon

 

ORIGINS is available in ebook for $3.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Barnes&Noble
Google Play

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

• ORIGINS (Insomnia Saga 3)

Our world is changing.
It is already turning into a darker place. And darker still.

The first step of the ritual has been completed.
Only two remain. And time is slipping.

It’s only been a day since Kay sacrificed his all in order to save the world; only a day since Jodi rose to fight her greatest enemy once more; only a day since Aiden’s betrayal; only a day since Annabelle and Damian achieved their first step in the ritual of the Infinite Night.

Realizing they need to take risks to keep the Infinite Night from falling, no matter the cost, Jodi, Kay and their friends have rallied the army of Insomnia to destroy the remaining two Stone Circles and plan to travel to the Circle in Miller themselves—but the entire world believes the Sleepwalkers are the enemy and refuse their help.

While everything is already working against them, Damian ups the stakes when he invites two of his companions to assist him with the remaining steps needed to complete the ritual, awaiting Annabelle’s recovery from Jodi’s unprecedented attack.

Jodi, however, has opened a connection between her and the Nightprowler.
And she can sense Annabelle already growing in strength.

Upon black shadows, the Night arrives, claiming the streets of Somnus and Reid, and possibilities start to look bleak until an unexpected invitation from an Insomnia soldier finds Jodi and Kay: they are not alone—an entire army is waiting to fight along with them in this war.

As Kay struggles with his brother’s betrayal, Jodi with her growing connection to Annabelle, and both of them with their unspoken feelings for one another, they let the mysterious invitation lead them to the tropical city of Maina, where darkness lurks in the rainforest… and perhaps even in broad daylight.

Jodi and Kay soon realize they are more than mere soldiers in this war against the Night—they are leaders; they are the voices that need to be heard.

But is either of them strong enough to keep the promises they have made to the world—and each other?


 

Originally (see what I did there?), ORIGINS had been planned to release in February this year, but because of other book releases, I had no other choice but to postpone it to May — I hope, however, that you will find it has been worth the wait 🙂 ORIGINS was an exciting project to work on, and I’m even more excited to see it all polished and finished like this. Please enjoy the continuation of Jodi’s and Kay’s story ❤️

Do you have any questions? Just have something to say? Please feel free to reach out to me on my blog, on social media, through email ( contact(at)lynnrobin.com ), or just leave a message down here; I always love hearing from my readers! Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d consider adding the book to your Goodreads and/or your BookBub!

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING PASSION (Kissing Monsters 8) — the final book

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING PASSION (Kissing Monsters 8) — the final book

The world is on the verge of drowning in darkness.
Kiss’s passion might not be just Zane’s, but everyone’s salvation…

Or their demise.

 

My dearest Monster Kissers,

To be honest, I can barely believe it — but the day of KISSING PASSION‘s release has arrived; the eighth and final book in the Kissing Monsters series is out today. KISSING PASSION wraps up the storylines, it’s the grand finale, it is the definitive conclusion to the story of Kiss, Zane and all monsters, angels, and Gifted Ones working against or with our beloved star crossed lovers.

As the author, this is an epic day for me. A year ago I was only just working on book 2… and now, the series has come to an end.

But not for you, dear reader! Not yet! As you still got to read this final installment… 🙂

 

KISSING PASSION is available in ebook for $1.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Barnes&Noble
Google Play

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

KISSING PASSION (Kissing Monsters #8)

 

This is exactly what Lock wanted.
His plan works; already, he has driven them apart.
And begun to shatter her heart.

Kiss was the only one in the world who could defeat the Collector, the strongest monster in recent history.

Now, she is the only one who can vanquish the Great Nightmare.

Or so Seraphim and the others believe, but Kiss silently doubts whether even her love is strong enough to turn Lock into an angel—because how can she muster any passion for the monster who destroyed her five years ago; for the beast that has now taken Zane away from her?

Being his creator, Skylar knows how mighty Lock is, and to atone for her mistakes before the angels will take her life, she tries to do anything in her power to make sure the world’s greatest threat will be eliminated—in case Kiss will fail.

She seeks the help of August, but will their plan work,
or be torn to pieces once again?

The world is on the verge of drowning in darkness.
Kiss’s passion might not be just Zane’s, but everyone’s salvation…
Or their demise.

 

I sincerely hope you will enjoy this conclusion to the Kissing Monsters series and that you’ll find it a worthy finale to the story. Thank you so much for starting this journey with me, Kiss, and Zane, and for sticking with us to the very end. I hope this world will forever remain in your heart, as it will in mine ❤️ Writing this series has been quite the adventure and I can honestly say I have enjoyed every single step of it.

 

• Kissing Monsters Collection, books 5—8

For the paperback lovers out there (because who doesn’t love them?), the second Kissing Monsters Collection, which includes books 5 to 8, will release on April 20th on Amazon! An ebook edition will also be released, and can be found on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes&Noble and GooglePlay.

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING NIGHTMARES (Kissing Monsters 5)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING NIGHTMARES (Kissing Monsters 5)

“Looking at you has always made me feel different.

It wakes me up, yet makes me dream.”

 

Hey there Monster Kissers,

The final weeks of the year are rushing by fast, meaning that the official release day of KISSING NIGHTMARES, already the 5th book in the Kissing Monsters series, has arrived! Kiss and Zane travel the world in search of the Wandering Artist, which brings them to the wondrous Snowlands… and closer to danger.

 

KISSING NIGHTMARES is available in ebook for $1.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Barnes&Noble
Google Play

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• 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.

 

Nightmares have come to life. Angels are falling.
But love burns bright.

Traveling the world for weeks now, Kiss and Zane are still searching for the Wandering Artist to help them make a ring to tame the monster in Kiss’s heart who wakes up every single night, always hungry for a demon’s or a human’s blood.

Skylar tries to track them down, determined to make Lady Scarlet—and any other monster—disappear from the world, unaware of the trail of nightmarish creatures she’s leaving behind while doing so.

It seems that Skylar’s kisses might not turn monsters into angels after all… but into Nightmares instead.

Following the rumors about the Wandering Artist into dreamy snowlands, Zane and Kiss first believe Skylar and the angels are the only ones who stand between them and their love—but soon they realize there are worse opponents out there; those who would do anything to tear them apart.

Even if it results in blood.

 


 

Though I wrote this installment during the summer, I already knew it would have a December release, which is why I took care to add some wintery elements to the story 😉 Count on lots of snow for a Christmas vibe — despite the monsters.

I hope all of you will enjoy the fifth part of Zane and Kiss’s love story, and thank you for reading ❤️

Do you have any questions? Just have something to say? Please feel free to reach out to me on my blog, on social media, or through email; I always love hearing from my readers! Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d consider adding the book to your Goodreads! The book has already received a couple of pre-release reviews that simply blow my mind… 😀

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!

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING GHOSTS (Kissing Monsters 4)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING GHOSTS (Kissing Monsters 4)

Playing his music brings a sense of freedom.

    It gives him strength, a power that has nothing to do with monsters.

    This simply is the song of his soul.

    And his soul once was lonely and tragic and heavy, but now it’s shimmering with hope and light and love—yes, love.

 

 

Hi, dear Monster Kissers~!

Today is the official release of KISSING GHOSTS, the fourth book in the Mature YA Romantic Dark Fantasy Kissing Monsters series!

Let’s celebrate this book birthday together!

 

KISSING GHOSTS is available for $1.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Barnes&Noble

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• KISSING GHOSTS (Kissing Monsters #4)

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.

Kiss is Scarlet; Scarlet is Kiss.

After revealing himself as Julian, Lock has returned Kiss’s memories to her—but the past is more painful than the agony she had to endure not remembering, as a tale of toxic love unravels in her mind.

As Kiss finds herself trapped in dark recollections and a version of herself that threatens to take over her new identity, Zane brings along Skylar as an ally as he enters Lock’s lair, determined to find his one true love.

And free her.

But Lock has surrounded himself with all the monsters once belonging to Zane’s collection, unwilling to relinquish Kiss as he savors her heartbreak, and will do everything in his power to keep Zane from reaching her.

Confronted with their own shadowy pasts, Zane has to battle loneliness once more and Skylar has to choose to remember her old self or embrace the slumbering powers inside her… while attracting the unwanted attention of Lock.

The games have only just begun.

 


 

With this fourth release, we’re already halfway the Kissing Monsters series! I’m so excited 😀

KISSING GHOSTS felt especially dark and intense for me to write, as I had to dive into the mind of Lock — and let’s just say it is a dark, wicked place. No surprise there, considering he’s a monster 😉

I hope you will enjoy this installment! I’ve already received some wonderful pre-release reviews, so I couldn’t be happier… but of course I hope my other readers will like it just as much~

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!

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Nocturne Files (Insomnia Saga 2.5)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Nocturne Files (Insomnia Saga 2.5)

First, the Nightprowlers brought them together.
Then, they divided them forever.

 

Hi there, Sleepwalkers! Today we’re celebrating the official release of The Nocturne Files, book 2.5 in the Insomnia Saga and the second short story collection to be featured in the series!

The Nocturne Files contains a novella and a short story written in dual perspectives, diving deeper into the series’ past and the lives of Nilisa Solovey and Alain Somnus, whose names we’ve encountered in NOCTURNE (Insomnia Saga #2)…

 

The Nocturne Files ebook edition is available for $1.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Smashwords

and can be found in paperback edition for $8.99 on:

Amazon

 

 

Watch the first book teaser:

 

• The Nocturne Files (Insomnia Saga #2.5)

The Nocturne Files contains a novella and an accompanying short story, told from the perspectives of Alain Somnus and Nilisa Solovey; a young man who became the world’s savior when he discovered powers with which he could battle the darkest creatures ever known to man—and a girl who believed them to be angels instead.

First, the Nightprowlers brought them together.
Then, they divided them forever.

File #1, told from dual perspective, revisits the night Alain Somnus performed a ritual of shadows, opening a gate to the realm of Night and accidentally inviting the demons to spill into his world.
The Masters of Night, the monsters are called—yet Nilisa Solovey, Alain’s unwilling fiancée, knows them as the Night Angels instead, for her secret lover, Orion, has been able to see them since he was a child.
And the moment Alain starts fighting them, Nilisa knows it is up to her to protect them—even if it means losing her family, her wealth, her life. Everything.

Nilisa’s story continues in File #2, as she struggles to live in a new world where angels are viewed as devils. Alain has opened the Somnus Academy and is teaching the people how to become Summoners of Light, making Nilisa realize she needs to gather like-minded men and women to stop the slaughtering of divine creatures.
As she crosses paths with the Queen of the Night Angels, an opportunity presents itself for Nilisa that enables her to become a soldier in this war of Night and Light, and save all that she loves:
A man, broken in the eyes of others. A child, who she believes deserves a better world. A queen, destined to rule.

 


 

Writing this short story collection has been a lot of fun and rather interesting, as it allowed me to explore the history of the Insomnia Saga‘s universe even deeper — and writing from Nilisa’s perspective was especially intense, considering she’s on the side of the Nightprowlers and regards them as actual angels (!). Let’s just say it was freakishly cool to live in her head for some time 😉

If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line here on my blog, on social media, through email; I’ll get back to you ASAP ❤️ Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d consider adding the book to your Goodreads!

“Jodi,” I can still hear her drawl, “my precious, little Sleepwalker.”

 

Jodi Collins and Kay Somnus return.

 

Three months ago, they defeated the strongest Nightprowler the world had ever seen; three months ago, they were accused of conspiring with Annabelle, and had to run for their lives; three months ago, they decided to raise their own army: Insomnia.

Jodi and Kay, still living in hiding, secretly travel from city to city to exorcise Nightprowlers and spread the name of Insomnia. Their army is growing, but so is the hatred towards Sleepwalkers—new laws have been passed, rights have been stolen, and the world is becoming a divided place.

But Jodi has changed. While fighting them, she fears the demons of the Night in a way she never did before, and she might be on the verge of losing the only weapon she has: her Light.

Meanwhile, both Kay’s family and his own dark past catch up to him, forcing him to fight the hardest battle he has ever fought in his life: opening up to those around him, while he knows a piece of the Night is still clinging to his soul.

With the arrival of the mysterious but violent Soulless Army, Jodi starts to believe Annabelle might very well be alive—and as the world grows darker, enemies gather, and Jodi’s and Kay’s paths divide, any-thing seems possible.

Jodi will have to fight for her Light, Kay will have to save her, and together they will have to accept they are both soldiers in an inevitable war.

They might have defeated Annabelle.
But the fight is far from over.

 


 

Writing NOCTURNE has been intense, and the book has gone through many changes; as some of you probably know, I actually started writing the Insomnia Saga books in Dutch, and at first I had planned to write only two books since it was supposed to be a duology.

The story kept on evolving in my head, however, the characters began to grow and turned out to have many more sides to them and secrets that had to be unraveled, and I soon realized I simply couldn’t fit all of this into just two books — which was why I began writing the second book time and time again, until I finally realized what I had to do:

If I wanted to do this story and my characters any justice, I had to add more books to this series 😉

After that decision, I began working on book 2 once more — and this time, everything just flowed. And that has resulted in the book I’m releasing today: NOCTURNE.

As I said, writing NOCTURNE has been an intense experience, not just because I had to start over several times, but also because it felt a bit darker than INSOMNIA and because I got to know Jodi and Kay a whole lot better… and discovered some painful moments in their pasts, yet also in their present life: as the blurb says, Jodi has changed, and I could truly feel her struggling with that while writing.

I sincerely hope you, my readers, can feel it too — and will keep on rooting for her along the way 🙂

• The Insomnia Files (Insomnia Saga 1.5) paperback release OUT NOW

As I released the Insomnia Saga‘s first short story collection back in April, entitled The Insomnia Files, COVID-19 had just broken out all across the world a few weeks prior. We all experienced a certain amount of anxiety — and, well, so did I, which made me feel a little uncomfortable ordering physical copies of books, etc., online. Which was why I postponed the release of The Insomnia Files‘ paperback.

In hindsight, I might’ve been a bit (well, VERY) overly cautious and let my anxiety talk a bit too loudly — I apologize for that! ^^”

However, to make it up, I’m releasing The Insomnia Files in paperback today! It’s available on Amazon worldwide 🙂

 

• You can order your copy here for $8.99!
