Finished writing The Sea of Her series + new books + am I neglecting this blog?

Finished writing The Sea of Her series + new books + am I neglecting this blog?

Dear Weepers of Pearls & Wild Strangers from the Sea; dear Monster Kissers & Collectors,

At last, I’m here with a new blog post. To be honest, I published two new ones back in March, so I suppose “neglect” is too big a word, still it feels like quite a while since I actually posted an update regarding my writing. There is a reason for that, but I’ll get into that at the end of this post.

First things first! ❤️

 

• The Sea of Her has come to an end

In the second week of March, I sat down to work on THE SHORE OF HIM, the 6th and final book in The Sea of Her series — and last Thursday, on March 31st, I wrote the final words for the book. Which means I’ve only worked on it for 3 weeks… yet it felt like months, probably because THE SHORE OF HIM is such an intense, emotional roller coaster of a book.

To be honest, I literally cried after finishing the manuscript. I’m not sure what came over me, actually — I always feel emotionally connected to my stories and characters, but something about Leilani’s and Keanu’s tale coming to an end just both made me happy and terribly sad at once. Kind of having to say goodbye to the best of friends. And I don’t really like having to say goodbye.

However, I’ve sent the manuscript out to my beta readers, and revisions will start later this month and run through in May. Which means it’s not a final farewell yet; I still have plenty of work to do on the book 😉

 

• Time for a new journey

I just realized I’ve never spoken of this on this blog this year (see what I mean? I AM kind of neglecting this place), but in January/February, I took a quick break from The Sea of Her to write the first book in a brand new Paranormal Romance series! I’ve talked about it for a bit on social media, especially on Instagram, even though I’ve never really shared any details.

And actually, I’m still not going to, because the time isn’t there yet. If everything goes according to plan, however, the cover for the first book should be designed this month, so I can schedule a reveal pretty soon, and finally share some details. These new characters have managed to steal my heart yet again, so I’m stoked to introduce them to you soon 🙂

Next to that, I’m brainstorming for 4 or 5 different book series at the moment, so, well… it’s going to be busy. I promise to keep you posted 😉

 

• To blog… or to vlog?

Now, to tell you the reason why I haven’t been blogging a lot lately: it’s because I have decided to start vlogging. Yes. Next to my writing, I’m going to be a YouTuber. I’ll be in front of the camera, no more hiding behind-the-scenes, and talk your ears off about my greatest passion… which is writing! I think it’s also called “AuthorTube”? I’m still learning the lingo here, guys, so bear with me.

Basically, I’m simply going to share my life as a writer with you all, in a more visual way than a blog will ever allow me to do. To be clear, I won’t be stopping this blog, but there will be more regular updates on my future vlog instead. I haven’t finished any video yet, but if you’d like to be the first to see them, you can already subscribe to my YouTube channel over here~!

I can’t say exactly when my first vlog will be up. The plan is May at the latest, but that means I have to get to work and start some serious recording 😉 I’ve already been practicing a bit in my Instagram stories, and I am super hyped about all this! Please stay tuned~

 

So, lots of exciting things going on! I have many plans for this year, and can’t wait to share it all with you guys 😀

 

I hope you are all very well, and thank you for reading this blog! Tell me, what do you prefer these days? Blogs or vlogs? Personally, I used to be a blog-enthusiast, but these days I rarely read them (oops), and watch lots of vloggers instead. I just feel that seeing someone, hearing them talk to me, and with the right images and music, I feel so much more connected to people. But maybe that’s just me! What about you? ❤️

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Pearls of Her (The Sea of Her 5)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Pearls of Her (The Sea of Her 5)

For so long, Leilani has been waiting for a savior.
Now, the time has come for her to become a warrior herself.

 

 

Dear Weepers of Pearls & Wild Strangers from the Sea,

Today I’m celebrating my very first release of 2022, which is The Pearls of Her, the fifth book in The Sea of Her series 🙂

To save both Keanu and Sora from the Deep, Leilani has to explore the darkest depths of herself in order to retaliate against the false Queen of the Ocean… but will she be able to stay true to who she is, or lose herself to shadows?

 

The Pearls of Her is available in ebook edition for $4.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Barnes&Noble
Google Play
Smashwords

 

The Pearls of Her is available in paperback edition for $10.99 on:

Amazon

 

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• The Pearls of Her (The Sea of Her #5)

For so long, Leilani has been waiting for a savior.
Now, the time has come for her to become a warrior herself.

Madam Deep’s mask has fallen, Kaholo’s true identity has been unraveled, and amidst the chaos, the turmoil of emotions, and the storm of confusion, Leilani has to give everything to prevent Madam Deep from selling her at the auction and taking the lives of Keanu and Sora.

And everything, is exactly what she has given.
Everything, is what she has lost.
Yet she has gained so much more.

As she dives into the darkest, unknown depths of herself, Leilani has to find a way not to lose all of her to the shadowy brothers she made a deal with.

But it is the only way to escape the Deep.
The only way to save her dear stranger from the sea, who is battling phantoms of his own and questions who he truly is, has always been, and is supposed to become.

Leilani, the Princess.
Keanu, the Guardian.
They both have their task to fulfill.

Although maybe, it is very different from what they ever imagined…

 


 

The Pearls of Her somehow felt a little different from the previous books. It’s action-packed, and barely gave me the chance to catch my breath before the next thing happened 😉 Yet it also slowed down when needed, and gave me the opportunity to explore many emotional themes and scenes which helped me flesh out Leilani’s and Keanu’s characters even more, making them feel even more raw and real to me. Hopefully, you will feel the same when reading the book!  ❤️

 

Also, this book means that Leilani’s and Keanu’s story is almost coming to an end — as book 6, The Shore of Him, will be the very final installment to this series and will release soon in eBook and paperback on June 21st in 2022!

 

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 ( contact@lynnrobin.com ); I always love hearing from my readers! Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d consider adding the book to your Goodreads and/or on BookBub! 😀

it was a strange summer

it was a strange summer

Hey there, Sleepwalkers; Monster Kissers; Wild Strangers from the Sea,

It’s me again. I’m back!

As I do every summer, I took a break off writing full time during the months of July and August — meaning, I don’t edit any manuscript or worry about getting them ready for publication; meaning, I usually keep on writing, though more on a casual level, without thinking about all the official stuff that comes with it.

But… this year was different, for some reason.

 

 

Without me realizing, I had kind of worn myself down the months before my summer break, as I’d been writing, editing, planning relentlessly, running to try and catch up with all the tasks I had set out for myself. Somehow, I hadn’t noticed how tired I was — until I forced myself to slow down.

The last couple of months have been strangely lazy and messy at once for me. Lazy, because I just dropped everything after finishing the third book in The Sea of Her series around halfway July, since I just needed to catch my breath and had just had my first COVID vaccination, which affected me more than I expected…

…0r wanted to admit to myself.

Telling myself to stop being a wuss, I just started to run around again, expecting myself to pick up the pace a few days after getting vaccinated, doing workouts and other chores, ignoring how tired it made me feel.

Yeah, well… that was a bad idea. One of the worst I’ve ever had, actually.

To make a long story short (because, really, I have far more interesting stories to share which I’d rather spend thousands of words on 😉 ), I was forced to park my butt on the couch and stop being my disciplined self, because my health was seriously suffering from it and to be honest, that really freaked me out. I just felt so tired, guys, I didn’t feel like me at all!

Also, I had to face reality and finally admit that I was trying to do too much on my own regarding my writing, only to get frustrated with myself for not accomplishing all of the tasks I had set out for myself, simply because there’s only so many hours in a day. This is why I’ve finally accepted some more help to support me in this entire writing adventure of mine, meaning someone will start helping me from now on with tasks such as promoting and also growing my ARC team. (I’ll share some more details soon~)

No worries, I’ll still be present personally on social media and my blog — so, when you’re talking to me, you’ll truly be talking to ME, as always ❤️

 

Anyway, since August I’ve been fully vaccinated after getting my second jab (and I don’t know about you guys, but the side effects from the second one were pretty awful if you ask me, I felt like a zombie for DAYS), but the weeks after I’ve been recovering in sudden, rapid speed — also mentally.

You know what? I’m feeling pretty good now 🙂

I’ve started going for regular walks during the final week of my summer break, which was when summer made a sudden comeback and painted the sky blue and warmed the air. It felt so great to be outside, be in the sun, breathe in some fresh air that smelled like both summer and autumn. This week the weather hasn’t been so spectacular, but that’s fine; I’m simply glad that I feel strong again, not just in body but also in mind.

With this post, I just wanted to give you all an update; although my presence on social media has remained rather steady this summer, I did kind of slack off on this blog. But I’m telling you now that I am back, have sent the third manuscript of The Sea of Her out to my Editing Ninjas for the final round of revisions, and have begun working on the fourth book! 😀

I’m glad to be working again — I mean, playing video games all day is incredibly fun, but… actually doing something, creating something… to me, that’s what life is really about ❤️❤️ Happy to be back!

So, like I said, it was a strange summer. But you know what? I’m more than ready for a wacky autumn 😉

 

Well, that’s it for this week! I’ve got some fun blog posts planned for the next few months, which will be a bit more “upbeat” than this one. (Hopefully it hasn’t been too gloomy and angsty, haha)

How has your summer been? Are you ready for autumn? And, better yet, for Halloween?

(*whispers* And… is it REALLY too soon to start mentioning Christmas…?)
