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!

JUNE 2020 Writing Update: NOCTURNE’s book birthday + KISSING SHADOWS & SCARLET + my books on Kindle Unlimited + writeaholic

JUNE 2020 Writing Update: NOCTURNE’s book birthday + KISSING SHADOWS & SCARLET + my books on Kindle Unlimited + writeaholic

And here we are yet again: at the end of another month.

June has been very busy for me (though I think I keep telling you guys that about almost every month, don’t I? xD), but it has been great and another month for me to look back at with a sense of satisfaction and excitement.

Let’s dive right in, shall we? 😀

 

2000_MU_Nocturne_Pink

• Celebrating NOCTURNE’s book birthday

This month I could finally celebrate the release of NOCTURNE, the second full-length installment in the Insomnia Saga, in which Jodi and Kay return and their story continues, picking up three months after the end of INSOMNIA!

The first half of June, however, my book designer and I were working hard to make the release actually possible, by creating the ebook edition as well as the paperback and book trailers. The process has been incredibly fun, even though at some point we had a bit of a setback regarding the paperback; there were some unexpected technical issues with the publisher, which is why—even though the book has already been officially released last week on June 23rd—I  got my copy of the paperback in the mail only last weekend. It kind of disrupted our careful planning, but well; the book is here now, and once more, it is such a rush to be able to hold a physical copy of my own book in my hands ❤️

If you haven’t already, check out NOCTURNE‘s book trailer!:

 

• NOCTURNE is available on Amazon worldwide in paperback edition for $14.99

 

• NOCTURNE is available on Amazon worldwide in ebook edition for $3.99

+ NOCTURNE’s ebook edition is also available through Kindle Unlimited!

 

2000_MU_KissingMonsters_v2

• Developments on the Kissing Monsters series; it’s growing!

As you might have read on my blog and social media, I’m also working on another series next to the Insomnia Saga.

Kissing Monsters is a Dark Fantasy Romance series (which, I repeat, heavily focuses on romance!❤️), from which I released KISSING MONSTERS (book 1) earlier this year on Valentine’s Day. It was supposed to remain a stand alone short story, but Kiss and Zane stole my heart and their story began to grow in rapid pace.

Which is why I can now announce that book 2, KISSING SHADOWS, is coming this summer in ebook edition only (just like book 1)!

Also, last week I finished writing book 3, which is entitled KISSING SCARLET… and will also be released this year 🙂

After some planning and looking at the developments in the story line, I’ve decided that the series will consist of 8 books total. All of them will be released in ebook only, but I’ll also be releasing two paperback editions in which the first four and the last four books will be included—so for those of you who just love physical copies of books (like me!), they are coming!

I’ll announce the official release dates for KISSING SHADOWS and KISSING SCARLET next week, so please, stay tuned! 😀

• Decisions to make as a Writer: my books now on Kindle Unlimited!

While working on the publication of NOCTURNE, I’ve also made a final decision about something I’d been thinking about for a while now.

I’ve decided to enroll all of my ebooks in KDP select.

This is a special program on Amazon, and enrolling in it now gives me the opportunity to offer my ebooks for free (for a limited amount of days every three months) on Amazon. Also, it automatically makes my books available through Kindle Unlimited, which allows readers to read as many books they want for—I believe—$9.99 a month; so readers who are subscribed to KU can now read my ebooks, and I’ll receive royalties of sorts from Amazon for every page that has been read 🙂

Me enrolling my ebooks in KDP also means that my ebooks are, from now on, exclusively available on Amazon, and can no longer be found on sites such as Kobo and Barnes&Noble. At first I was convinced it was very important for me to be featured in all kinds of online bookstores, but after doing some research on the last five months or so, I realized that of all the books I’d sold, had all been sold through Amazon. Not a single one had been ordered through another store, and my readers and buyers have come from all over the world—from the United States to the Netherlands.

This made me realize my decision wouldn’t be an inconvenience to my readers at all; and I believe the KDP program and Kindle Unlimited will certainly be able to help me grow in my career as an author ❤️ I’m very excited about this, and weirdly enough, have already noticed a (careful) increase in sales in the past week. Coincidence? Don’t know, but I’m not complaining, and I’ll just see what the future brings as I’ll release more new books 😉

 

JAN'20_WritingUpdate

• Writeaholic: I CANNOT STOP

It’s true. I don’t know what’s happening to me the last few months, but I honestly can’t seem to stop writing.

Sure, it has always been my passion, but the last few years (ever since I started publishing my books) I found myself wanting some time off whenever the summer came around, feeling tired and needing some time to find some fresh inspiration.

Not this year.

As always, I’m granting myself a summer break of sorts in July and August. My holiday starts next week, and although I do plan to make some time to get some more reading and video gaming done (and perhaps even a bit of drawing for the fun of it)… I don’t think I’ll be able to take a true break off writing.

I just don’t feel like it.

The only change, however, is that I’ll be living on a slower pace (not getting up as early as usual!) and that I won’t have to do any editing on manuscripts. All I can focus on the next two months is writing, which, let’s be honest, is my most favorite part of the entire writing process 😉

So. Yep. I’m an official writeaholic (even though my spelling check keeps arguing with me that isn’t a word), and one of the projects I’m excited to work on in July will be the fourth installment to the Kissing Monsters series!

 

Well, I guess this was a fine update on June 2020! The world has gone insane around me. The government is already easing up on restrictions. But really, I am staying indoors this summer to keep my family and myself safe (no matter what some people claim, the virus “not being so dangerous” and all), and I’m convinced I’ll have the best of fun writing and simply enjoying my time off 🙂

I hope you’ll all have a great summer too, despite our current circumstances, and that you’ll remain safe and healthy.

 

• Don’t forget: I’ll be announcing official Insomnia Saga and Kissing Monsters release dates next week, so stay tuned! There is a summer release among those…

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: NOCTURNE (Insomnia Saga 2) + The Insomnia Files paperback edition

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: NOCTURNE (Insomnia Saga 2) + The Insomnia Files paperback edition

I have changed.
Castle Insomnia has broken something deep inside of me.
“Jodi,” I can still hear her drawl, “my precious, little Sleepwalker.”

 

Jodi Collins and Kay Somnus return

 

Hey there! Indeed, Jodi Collins and Kay Somnus return in today’s anticipated release: NOCTURNE, the second full-length installment to the Insomnia Saga, in which the story continues three months after the events of INSOMNIA.

 

• NOCTURNE is available on Amazon worldwide in paperback edition for $14.99

 

• NOCTURNE is available on Amazon worldwide in ebook edition for $3.99

+ NOCTURNE’s ebook edition is also available through Kindle Unlimited!

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

• NOCTURNE (Insomnia Saga #2)

I have changed.
Castle Insomnia has broken something deep inside of me.
“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!
