NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Waves of Him (The Sea of Her 2)

The waves are rising.
The ocean is awakening.

It seems that not only Leilani’s letters bind her and Keanu’s destiny together.

So do the Twins.
And so does the Crown.

 

 

Dear Weepers of Pearls & Wild Strangers from the Sea,

Yes, it’s true! Today we’re celebrating the release of The Waves of Him, book 2 in The Sea of Her Paranormal Romance series. After the major cliffhanger (please forgive me, I couldn’t help myself; I guess I like torturing my readers *evil grin*) of the first book, now comes the awaited continuation of the story…

Leilani has sacrificed herself in order to save Keanu’s life — but he’s not about to give up on her without a fight and certainly not planning on breaking his promise to her: to be the savior she has wished for all this time.

 

The Waves of Him is available as in ebook edition for $4.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Barnes&Noble
Google Play
Smashwords

 

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

Amazon

 

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• The Waves of Him (The Waves of Him #2)

To save Keanu’s life, Leilani has sacrificed herself and agreed to become the Bride.

As the Twins take her to their castle in the ocean, Leilani soon discovers truths and secrets about both the brothers and herself which she never imagined.

When the Twins announce that the wedding will take place in two days, Keanu gives in to his raging anger and slips back into his dark past in order to be the savior he promised Leilani he’d be — while receiving unexpected help from a mysterious force in the ocean.

But perhaps Leilani can be a hero herself, as the powers of the sea grow stronger in her veins.

The waves are rising.
The ocean is awakening.

It seems that not only Leilani’s letters bind her and Keanu’s destiny together.

So do the Twins.
And so does the Crown.

 


 

The Waves of Him was such an exciting book for me to work on. It also felt a little bit darker than book 1, as I got to explore the world from Keanu’s point of view and found out more details about his grim past. I truly hope you will all enjoy this sequel and that some of your questions will be answered… 😉

Also, book 3, The Tide of Her will release soon in eBook and paperback on October 26th!

Last but not least, I’d like to thank you — my readers — from the bottom of my heart for your support of this series! It has already received such wonderful reviews; I couldn’t be more grateful and happy ❤️ In all honesty, releasing a brand new series is absolutely terrifying and I’ve experienced some moments of mild anxiety at the start of all this (lol), but you guys give me the courage I need to keep going as an author and keep publishing new books! Thank you, thank you, thank you ❤️❤️

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! 🙂

The Magic of Going Off the Grid

The Magic of Going Off the Grid

• The Magic of Going Off the Grid •

 

Sometimes you just need a break.

 

Right?

 

Don’t get me wrong, I think the Internet is one of the best inventions ever made. Also, I enjoy social media and have mostly positive experiences with it. Then again, I like to share my words with the world. I like to share what I’m working on, daily.

 

But sometimes the endless chatter of other people, even when you can’t actually hear them, can be deafening. As you scroll through your feeds, you’re confronted with hundreds of opinions, so many different ways of thinking, so many eyes that perceive the world differently. And no matter how strongly you believe in your own opinions and perceptions, no matter that you’re absolutely certain about the road you’ve taken… all those voices still manage to find a way to creep into your mind.

 

And then the whispers begin. And soon those quiet voices turn to shouts and screams.

 

Before you know it, you start overthinking things way too much, you start to worry about other people’s thoughts, you start to imagine scenarios that haven’t even happened yet and probably never will… and then you feel tired. Burned out. And instead of seeking silence, which you actually long for, you return to those platforms again and again and soak up even more noise — only to fill your head with even louder shouts and screams.

 

Sounds familiar?

 

To me it certainly does.

 

I’ve had a crazy last couple of weeks. My summer holidays had started, but it didn’t really feel like it.

 

On my first holiday Monday I got my very first vaccination. The side-effects weren’t too bad. A sore arm for a couple of days, but mostly I just felt tired. I’d planned to, but didn’t write a single word, because I honestly couldn’t be bothered. Which was fine, right? Because it was the holidays.

 

Tell that to my brain: I just couldn’t fully rest, didn’t allow myself to, because I was still working on The Tide of Her, book 3 in The Sea of Her series. There was this constant voice in the back of my mind, nagging me to work on it, to just finish the manuscript…

 

So, I gave in to that voice in the second week of my holidays. And it felt great! I wrote chapter after chapter, everything was just flowing. And yet, at the start and at the end of every writing day, I felt utterly exhausted. First, I figured I was just tired from the creative process and needed a break.

 

Yet that wasn’t the case.

 

After a few days, I realized that besides writing, I was also furiously checking and updating my social media, while also constantly checking the number of downloads for The Sea of Her; the ebook edition has been available for free since the day of release, and it has been crazy. The book has already been downloaded far more times than I expected — which is awesome!

 

But, what happens in my mind, is this: I keep looking, daily, at the increasing downloads. Then, I start checking sites such as Amazon, Kobo, and Goodreads to see whether anyone has already read it and placed a review or left a rating. And even though The Sea of Her has already received several reviews, which have all blown my mind and I couldn’t be more grateful for, I start worrying about all those other people who have downloaded my book, are maybe reading it, and… Will they love it? Will they hate it?

 

That’s what was exhausting me. Not the writing. But really, worrying about how my writing could be perceived by others. Which is absolutely pointless, because it is out of my control, and every single book, every single author out there receives both good and bad responses. Because there are so many different people with different opinions and views, right?

 

Which is fine. That’s simply the way the world works.

 

Luckily, I realized this soon enough. I also realized that I am not writing for the people who possibly don’t like my books. I write for those who do love them and care as much about my characters as I do.

 

So, on Wednesday night I made a decision. I still had 5 chapters left to write for the manuscript, and I decided it was time to finish them all; to just sit down and finish the book. And to do so, without any distractions, without constantly reminding myself of all the different people and countless opinions out there, I had to go off the grid for a bit.

 

The next day, I immediately turned off my Wi-Fi, simply opened my manuscript, and began to write. It was just me and my story, just me and my characters, just me and the fictional world I have created.

 

It was awesome. It felt just like when I was still a teenager and simply wrote stories for myself (as I told about in my previous blog post). When I didn’t worry about other opinions. When I barely had any social media accounts. Long before I stepped into the world with my books, wanting to be seen, to be read.

 

Those five chapters practically wrote themselves, the words simply flowed, and I was so invested in my characters and world that I, just for a little while, forgot about everything else. When I finished the very final chapter, I swear my legs were actually shaking with the adrenaline of it (spoiler alert: the ending of The Sea of Her book 3 is INTENSE).

 

Writing like this again was such a wild ride, and I loved every minute of it. At the end of that day I went back online again, to celebrate finishing the book; that way I could still share the accomplishment with readers and fellow authors, but without all the unnecessary distractions.

 

Maybe this doesn’t sound all that special. I’m pretty sure that there are more people out there who go off the grid every once in a while, simply to catch their breath and distance themselves from all the noise. I actually used to do this more often, although this year, I actually can’t recall a single day that I haven’t shown up online.

 

Anyway, it was a valuable lesson for me, and I’ve decided to go off the grid during writing more often from now on, to treat myself to a bit of stillness, and to connect even deeper to the stories I want to tell — and then, yes, share with the world 😉

 

 

How about you? Are you constantly online, constantly wanting to share — or have you also experienced the magic of going off the grid every now and then? I’d love to hear about it, so please feel free to leave a comment down below ❤️

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Sea of Her (The Sea of Her 1)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Sea of Her (The Sea of Her 1)

Leilani has a gift:
the tears she cries all turn into pearls.

 

 

Dear Weepers of Pearls & Wild Strangers from the Sea,

Today I am so excited to announce that The Sea of Her, the first book in my brand new Paranormal Romance series, is now available as eBook and paperback!!

The Sea of Her kicks off the story of Leilani, also known as the Weeper of Pearls, a young woman who is trapped on an island ruled by the sinister Twins… and a mysterious young man who inexplicably washes ashore, and who may or may not be the savior she’s been waiting for all this time.

 

The Sea of Her is available as a FREE ebook download on:

Smashwords
Kobo
Barnes&Noble
Google Play

* The Sea of Her is also available on Amazon for 0.99; however, if you’d like a MOBI file, you can also download it for free on Smashwords

 

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

Amazon

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• The Sea of Her (The Sea of Her #1)

Leilani has a gift:
the tears she cries all turn into pearls.

Three years ago, her well-kept secret got exposed — and upon finding out, the sinister Twins who rule the island have claimed her as their bride-to-be.

The Twins stole the Crown from the King of the Ocean many years ago, obtaining powers no man should possess, holding everyone prisoner and controlling dark sea creatures that haunt the streets at night.

Desperate for divine intervention, Leilani throws a message in a bottle into the sea, pleading for the King of the Ocean to awaken from his slumber and save her.

The next day, she finds an unconscious young man on the beach.

Keanu is a mystery, quiet and seemingly cold-hearted, stormy-eyed and bearing scars, harboring deep secrets of his own.

Could he be the King?
Or could he at least be Leilani’s savior?

 


 

The Sea of Her is a story that has been on my mind for a couple of years, and it feels so special to me to see it has become an actual book now. The moment I held the eBook and then the paperback edition in my hands, it was so unreal. Every time I start a new series it feels magical — and I hope it feels the same way to you, dear reader, and that you will enjoy the start of this new story and that you’ll be there with me for the adventure ❤️ At the moment, five books are planned for the entire series.

And don’t forget, book 2, The Waves of Him will release soon in eBook and paperback on August 24th!

 

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! 🙂

JUNE 2021 Writing Update #1: Writing Days of Infinite Sunshine

JUNE 2021 Writing Update #1: Writing Days of Infinite Sunshine

Peace is the way to live. Violence is only a way to survive.

— quote from The Waves of Him (The Sea of Her #2)

 

June is here, marking the start of summer — and it really, truly does.

The weather has been amazing here in the Netherlands for the past few days, filled with sunshine and infinite blue skies. No more long sleeves, no more endless layers of clothes. We’re going summer style.

And, in case you didn’t know, I happen to LOVE summer. It’s by far my favorite season, simply because everything feels more alive. The vibrant colors of nature give me such inspiration for my stories, and the warm temperature fills me with energy; I swear it makes me write even faster than usual. (Really. It does.)

Except during a heatwave, maybe. However, on the other hand, I’ve also been binge-writing during several of them over the past few years 😉

So, now over to the actual “writing” in this Writing Update! The last couple of weeks have been quite busy for me, and even more bookish action is coming my — and your — way this month.

A new book has been finished.
Others have been edited.
Another one is being born.
And some are about to spread their wings and fly off into the wide world of the reading community…

You ready?

 

• Diving into the tragic past of the Insomnia Saga

If you’ve been following me on social media lately, you’ve probably already seen this — however, I’d still like to mention that a couple of weeks ago I finished working on the manuscript of The Origins Files. It is a short story collection that is a sequel to The Nocturne Files (Insomnia Saga 2.5), yet is also deeply connected to ORIGINS (Insomnia Saga 3).

As ORIGINS has only released in ebook and paperback last week, I cannot say too much, except that several new subjects on the dark past of Alain Somnus and the Night Angel Cult have been touched upon in the book, and I’ve turned those side-storylines in a detailed short story and novella that make up The Origins Files.

It was really fun and interesting to work on this, but also rather sad at some points, as I dug deeper in Orion’s and Nilisa’s past and relationship… and if you’ve read The Nocturne Files, you can probably guess it’s all pretty tragic, to say the least. I don’t think I’ve ever written such a complicated, messy love story before!

I’ve already picked a release date for the book, so I’ll let you guys know ASAP 🙂

 

• The Sea of Her: editing, publication & writing update

Last month I revealed my brand-new Paranormal Romance series, entitled The Sea of Her, and announced the release for book 1 (June 22nd) and book 2 (August 24th)… which means the series will start releasing THIS MONTH!!

In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m totally excited.

😀

Yes. So. Currently the preparations are in full swing. I finished editing the first book last week and am currently working my way through the final revisions on book 2, The Waves of Him. Usually I am not a huge fan of revisions, but I’m actually having lots of fun with these!

Meanwhile, I am already working on book 3 in the series, which I’ll probably officially announce later this summer. The rough overall plot outline for the entire book is done, and earlier this week I even finished the detailed plot outline for the first half of the novel. I’ve begun writing the first couple of chapters yesterday, and will work some more on it as I wrap up the revisions on book 2 this week 🙂

And next week, and probably the week after, me and my sis/awesome book designer will join forces again to turn the manuscripts into actual books! I can’t wait to see the ebook editions — and I’m even more excited for the paperbacks. What will they look like? What kind of interior design will they get? Even I don’t know yet! (THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME.)

 

So, that’ll be June — and after all that work is done, I’m going to slow down for a couple of months as I’ll be taking my annual summer break~ I am pretty sure there will still be a lot of writing going on, and of course, I’ll keep up my presence on social media and will stay in touch with my ARC team and other readers (uhm, when exactly will this become a holiday??), but… whenever I feel like taking a day or several days off to just read or play a video game or do whatever, I simply can without having to feel guilty 😉 (We all know THAT feeling, right?)

Also, a quick Covid-update; the vaccinations here in the Netherlands are finally progressing a lot faster, and I think I might be able to get mine this month. I just hope it’ll be after I’m done with all my work, because everyone seems to end up feeling terribly tired after getting their shot. We’ll see. Well, now that I think about it, it doesn’t really matter that much. I’ll make it work anyway. After all, your health is way more important than deadlines, right?

 

This is it for now! This’ll be my last blog post for the next few weeks, as I’m going to be really busy, but of course I’ll still be around on social media <3

I hope you guys are all doing well and are in good health! Please feel free to leave a message here down below; I always love reading them 🙂

(Also, I went for a long walk yesterday, and if you’d like to see some pretty pictures of trees and flowers and even more trees, head on over to my Instagram!)

MAY 2021 Writing Update: Quiet Times

MAY 2021 Writing Update: Quiet Times

Okay, so it’s been a while since my final Writing Update — exactly a month, which wasn’t the plan, as I always try to keep this blog alive with regular updates… but you know, sometimes you have to be honest with yourself and realize that, some moments, you just don’t have anything super interesting to share.

In all honesty, I’m going through a more “quiet” phase lately, in which I am working hard behind the scenes and everything just flows nicely. Which is cool, but leaves me wondering what to tell you guys.

However, I’ve just decided to give you all a quick run-down of my current projects 🙂 Let’s go!

 

At the end of April and the start of May, I worked together with my book designer (who happens to be my awesome sister, for those of you who didn’t know that yet!) to turn ORIGINS (Insomnia Saga 3) into an actual book! We made the ebook, designed the paperback, made the book trailers, and added some updates to my website to keep everything… well, up to date.

I’m super excited about how ORIGINS has turned out, especially the paperback edition, as it’s filled with lots of fun features such as in-story newspaper articles, blog posts and advertisements, that all contribute to the world-building. (Of course, these are also included with the ebook edition, but since there’s only so much design you can add to an ebook, it’s a bit less fancy than the paperback, naturally.) Feeling proud of this latest installment to the Insomnia Saga, and I hope you guys will all enjoy the continuation of Jodi’s and Kay’s journey ❤️

 

ORIGINS releases next week on May 25th in ebook and paperback!

 

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on writing The Origins Files (Insomnia Saga 3.5), the third short story collection in the series. Like The Nocturne Files, it consists of a short story and a novella, that follow up the stories featured in the earlier mentioned Nocturne Files.

It’s really fun to work on, as I dive deeper into Alain Somnus’s character — while his best friend, Frankie, also gets some special screen time, as well as Orion (an important key character as he’s the co-founder of the Night Angel Cult together with Nilisa Solovey)… and, I’m even introducing a brand new character! I’ll reveal more as soon as ORIGINS is out 😉

 

And, of course, last week I finally revealed my brand new Paranormal Romance series, entitled The Sea of Her. All information can be found here.

As book 1 and 2 are already finished (and currently being edited by my Editing Ninjas and myself!), I’m going to work on book 3 as soon as I’ve finished writing The Origins Files. I’m already looking forward to it, and I’ll keep you all posted on the developments ❤️❤️ It’s so nice to finally be able to talk about this series, now that I can share the titles, covers, and storyline. Makes it easier too, lol~

 

This is it, for now. Just a quick update. As I stated earlier, everything is simply going smoothly, calmly… quietly. Not much to report, except that all is going well 😀 That’s pretty nice too, right?

How are you all doing? Is life quiet, or is it busy?

Please feel free to leave a comment down below, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!

NEW PARANORMAL ROMANCE BOOK SERIES ALERT: revealing & introducing The Sea of Her

NEW PARANORMAL ROMANCE BOOK SERIES ALERT: revealing & introducing The Sea of Her

After teasing you guys for a couple of months, telling you about the brand new Paranormal Romance series I was working on and promising I would reveal it “soon” and “in the near future”… the time has finally come for me to reveal to you

The Sea of Her

a brand new series that will be launched this summer! ❤️

 

The Sea of Her takes place in a tropical setting, and starts off on the fictional island of Hibiscus, which is ruled by the sinister Twins, who have powers no man should have. Leilani, a sweet yet mysterious girl, also known as the Weeper of Pearls, is desperate to escape the island and the Twins who demand of her to become their Bride — and when an enigmatic, stormy-eyed young man bearing scars called Keanu inexplicably washes ashore near her restaurant, she can’t help but wonder whether he could be the savior she’d been wishing for all these years…

 

• the main protagonists are all in their twenties

• includes fantasy elements and lots (LOTS) of romance

• for those who love stories set in a tropical/beach/ocean setting

 

So, that’s the story in a nutshell — but if you’d like to know more, check out the official blurb below:

 

The Sea of Her (The Sea of Her #1)

Leilani has a gift:
the tears she cries all turn into pearls.

Three years ago, her well-kept secret got exposed — and upon finding out, the sinister Twins who rule the island have claimed her as their bride-to-be.

The Twins stole the Crown from the King of the Ocean many years ago, obtaining powers no man should possess, holding everyone prisoner and controlling dark sea creatures that haunt the streets at night.

Desperate for divine intervention, Leilani throws a message in a bottle into the sea, pleading for the King of the Ocean to awaken from his slumber and save her.

The next day, she finds an unconscious young man on the beach.

Keanu is a mystery, quiet and seemingly cold-hearted, stormy-eyed and bearing scars, harboring deep secrets of his own.

Could he be the King?
Or could he at least be Leilani’s savior?

 

 

And since I’m already sharing and revealing… here’s the cover reveal of book 2 in the series, entitled The Waves of Him:

 

 

 

The Sea of Her (The Sea of Her #1) releases in ebook and paperback on June 22nd… and the ebook will be available as a FREE DOWNLOAD!
The Waves of Him (The Sea of Her #2) releases in ebook and paperback on August 24th

 

I am so excited about this, and I hope you are too and will look forward to the release! 😀 Also, I’d like to add how much I just love the cover designs for my new series; as usual, they’ve been created by my incredibly talented sister, and they’re just absolutely gorgeous. Mysterious and dreamy, I promise you they fit the story PERFECTLY.

For now I have 5 books planned for the entire series — if anything changes (meaning, if there will be more books), I’ll be sure to let you all know, of course 😉

 

Remember: the ebook edition of book 1 will be available as a free download on June 22nd!

 

What do you guys think? Are you going to read The Sea of Her? Please feel free to leave a comment below, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask! Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d consider adding the book to your Goodreads!

• Kissing Monsters Collection #2 (Kissing Monsters 5—8)

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

While on the run from both angels and destiny, Kiss and Zane search 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 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.

Enemies gather, the sky darkens, and unlikely friendships bloom.
Kiss and Zane will have to decide.
Between the world. Or their love.

Read the epic conclusion to the love story of Kiss and Zane in a world of monsters and angels in this collection of the final four books in the Kissing Monsters series…

 


 

So, for those wanting to complete their Kissing Monsters paperback collection, here it is — or for those of you who have been patiently waiting to read the final four books in one go, I hope you will all deeply enjoy this finale to the series 🙂

Once again, thanks so much everyone who went on this journey with me, who fell in love with me as Kiss and Zane fell in love with each other, and who opened their hearts for all the other characters who joined the cast, such as Skylar, August, Nyokah, Chula… and even Lock ❤️

Why, you ask? Well, read on and find out!

(See? I even use tiny cliffhangers in my blog posts these days. I’m on a roll.)

 

• a 4-year anniversary

Four years ago, on April 14th 2017, I posted my very first blog post on this very blog, I tweeted my very first tweet, and published my very first post on Facebook, in which I introduced myself to the world as a freshly new indie-author.

Well, actually, I only introduced myself to the Netherlands, since I still wrote my books in Dutch at the time, but anyway — that day was the start of my journey as a published author and I will never forget it, because going down this road is still one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I remember feeling so excited that day, as I could finally start spreading the word of my first book’s release (which came out at the start of June 2017; it was the first installment to a 6-book Fantasy/Horror/Romance series entitled the Schimmenwereld Serie/“Phantom World series”), and everything started to become real. However, to be honest, it was also quite anticlimactic, because obviously, not a soul had heard of me and those first few months I practically drowned in a sea of tweets and posts without anyone noticing me.

But none of that matters! I’ve come pretty far since then, even switched over to English a year ago so I could reach readers internationally, and it has all been the beginning of realizing my dreams. I still have many goals to achieve and dreams to realize, but I’m working hard, and… well, to be honest, are you ever finished realizing goals and dreams? Once you’ve achieved one, a new one will pop up. There’s no rest for the wicked! And crazed writers, obviously 😉

Anyway. Happy anniversary to me! 😀

 

• The New Series

In the last Writing Update, I told you that I had finished writing the first book of my brand-new Fantasy Romance series, and that I had sent the manuscript to my beta-readers for their opinion. I was rather nervous, remember?

Well, turned out I didn’t really need to be, because they loved it! I was so relieved. ♥️

I’ve already begun working on book 2 and am about halfway through. I expect to have it finished before the end of April, so it’s all going rather smoothly — and my brain’s already brimming with very detailed ideas for book 3!

Also, I have seen the covers for the first two books, as they’ve already been made, and WHOA. Guys, they’re so beautiful!!! I honestly can’t wait to share them with you! It won’t be long now, I’ll stop teasing you real soon, I swear!

Some big reveals and updates are coming in May, so stay tuned! I’ll share some covers, the blurb for book 1, and of course a release date 🙂

 

• Insomnia Saga updates are coming too!

Apart from covers for my new series, I have also seen the final three covers for the Insomnia Saga, and as I stated on Instagram, they look freakishly gorgeous. I’ll share those with you as well (in May, probably? Otherwise June at the latest)!

Also, the revisions for ORIGINS part two are in full swing, which should be finished at the end of this month. The release of the full edition and so the paperback on May 25 is finally drawing near 😀

 

Let’s wrap up this update! I’ve probably teased you guys way too much with promises while I am not showing a single thing, but I swear the wait is almost over! I’m super excited about all the projects I’m working on (as you can probably tell, lol). I actually have a hard time believing it’s only been 4 years since I became a published author — to me, it kind of feels like I’ve been doing this for almost a decade or something 😉 So strange!

Well, in that case, I’ll see you guys on my 10-year anniversary in six years, right~?

Thank you for reading this update, and please be safe and well everyone! ♥️

MARCH 2021 Writing Update #2: A Month of Endings and New Beginnings

MARCH 2021 Writing Update #2: A Month of Endings and New Beginnings

Hey there Monster Kissers and Sleepwalkers ♥️

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last writing update, but to be honest, it feels like months — probably because I’ve been doing a lot of work… that will result in several new book releases 😉

So, what have I been up to?

 

• the release of KISSING PASSION

I know most of you already know this, but I like to touch on KISSION PASSION‘s release of last week anyway, because it is different from other book releases; after all, KISSING PASSION is the eighth and final book in the Kissing Monsters series, marking an end to my latest writing journey.

It still feels a bit unreal, to be honest! I’d actually already said my goodbyes to Kiss, Zane, and the others back when I finished the manuscript in December, but now I feel like I’m doing it all over again thanks to the reviews and words of readers. I just want to thank you all for your amazing support for this series, and for  loving the ending!

That’s one of the scariest things when finishing a series; I always do my best to tie up all loose ends and write an ending that will leave you satisfied, but I only know for sure I’ve succeeded in that as soon as I hear back from the readers — meaning, it is a RELIEF you all seem to have enjoyed it.

I will forever do my best to keep this up with my future series 😀

 

• talking of future series…

In my previous writing update I was still working on the first book of my brand new series… and I am proud to say that I have finished the manuscript last week!

Suddenly my manic writing skills kicked in again (as they usually do when I’m working on the final chapters of a book; it’s weird, but it just happens) and I wrote nearly 100 pages in three days. Now that I look back on it, it actually passed me by in a blur — especially that last day, when I wrote nearly 10.000 words. My brain was absolute toast as soon as I’d written that final sentence of the epilogue, but it was so worth it. Pushing through the last chapters of a manuscript at top-speed always gives me quite the adrenaline boost 😉

I’ve read the entire manuscript on Monday and yesterday, to check whether the overall story line was running smoothly as well as the scenes, and I must say when I finished reading I was feeling rather pleased with my work… but now the nerves have kicked in, because I have sent the manuscript to my beta readers and it’s time to see what they think of it. It’s nerve wracking, I tell you.

However, in any case, I’m planning to launch this new series early summer, so expect some news and revelations during the coming months 😀

 

• quick Insomnia Saga update

I’ve also been editing the first half of ORIGINS, and the ebook edition of part 1 will release tomorrow! (I’ll publish a blog post on that, of course, so if you’re interested, stay tuned!)

Next week I’m going to dive into the other half, so that one and the complete edition of ORIGINS can finally be released on May 25th in both ebook and paperback ♥️ Jodi and Kay are back in book 3 of the Insomnia Saga, learning to become stronger and braver than ever in a world that’s quickly turning against them, with dark clouds of the Night looming on the horizon…

 

All right, those are the most important updates for now! I’m going to work on outlining book 2 of the new series, as well as doing some brainstorming sessions for the remaining Insomnia Saga books that still need to be written. As always, I’ll keep you all posted 🙂

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.

 

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(at)lynnrobin.com); I always love hearing from my readers! Also, I’d appreciate it if you’d consider adding the book to your Goodreads!  🙂
