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!

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING SCARLET (Kissing Monsters 3)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: KISSING SCARLET (Kissing Monsters 3)

Kiss’s thoughts scatter when Zane starts to move; he advances, his steps lithe and graceful as a predator’s.
Like the monster he used to be.

He still carries that strength, that rawness, with every step he takes toward her.


“Kiss,” he rasps, suddenly before her, her name a sweet hiss floating off his lips. He is close enough to touch—and before she can think, before she can think of backing away or coming closer instead, he’s already doing just that: touching her.


“Kiss,” he repeats roughly, his gaze bright with emotions she can feel swirling in her heart, a wild dance. “What are you doing here? How have you found me?”

 

 

Hi monster kissers~!

Today is the official release of KISSING SCARLET, the third book in the Mature YA Dark Fantasy Romance Kissing Monsters series!

The love story of Kiss and Zane grows even darker and more complicated as both monsters and angels try to separate them… and in this installment a new key-character will be added to the cast! Meet Skylar 😉

 

KISSING SCARLET is available for $0.99 on:

Amazon
Kobo
Smashwords

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• KISSING SCARLET (Kissing Monsters #3)

Kiss’s thoughts scatter when Zane starts to move; he advances, his steps lithe and graceful as a predator’s.
Like the monster he used to be.
He still carries that strength, that rawness, with every step he takes toward her.
“Kiss,” he rasps, suddenly before her, her name a sweet hiss floating off his lips. He is close enough to touch—and before she can think, before she can think of backing away or coming closer instead, he’s already doing just that: touching her.
“Kiss,” he repeats roughly, his gaze bright with emotions she can feel swirling in her heart, a wild dance. “What are you doing here? How have you found me?”

 

After surrendering herself to the monster called Lock, all to save Zane’s life, Kiss is now forced to live in the demon’s lair as his obedient servant, bound to him by a ring made of bone.

Lock’s word is law. Her name is now Scarlet because he says it is.
And she is sent away to kill Zane and collect his blood,
because he tells her so.

Meanwhile, Zane is traveling the world in search for a human who could become the next Gifted One—a Monster Kisser, like him—which brings him to a sleepy seaside town, where he soon meets a young, blue-haired woman called Skylar.

Skylar has a secret to hide—yet when Zane starts to uncover it, he realizes that their paths crossing must have been a twist of fate.

Willing to do anything to free Kiss from Lock’s reign, Zane is ready to break every rule and make any promise;
even if it means the wrath of angels.

Even if it means giving Kiss his blood.

 


 

I almost can’t believe book 3 is already out today — writing it feels like weeks ago instead of months — and I’m excited to find out what you guys will think of it! This book had some twists even I didn’t see coming at first (yep), and I feel that Skylar’s story adds some rawness to the series, which I hope you can appreciate despite the fact that it adds a bit of a darker theme to the series 🙂 But, of course, there’s also plenty of romance to sweeten things up~

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!

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!

JULY 2020 Writing Update: Strange Summer Holidays Part 1 + Kissing Lots of Monsters

JULY 2020 Writing Update: Strange Summer Holidays Part 1 + Kissing Lots of Monsters

July was my first “summer holiday” month, and, well… things were a bit different than usual.

Normally I’d go out, visit my city’s botanical gardens a few times, maybe go to a museum, the cinema, or to the nearby park where I’d sit down in the grass with a book and a snack to eat. Not all that exciting, I know, but those activities are what make the summer feel like summer to me.

Yet with the world’s current circumstances, things are bound to be different this year. I’m indoors all the time—really, the balcony is starting to feel exotic—, which actually makes it harder for me to break with my usual routines and work. Next to that, my inspiration keeps on flowing (I don’t think it has even stopped for a day this year; no writers block for me) and new book series ideas keep rushing into my head.

But do I mind? Let’s find out…

 

• Writing: KISSING GHOSTS

Let’s face it, writing my books doesn’t feel like “work” to me at all. I just love it, the entire process is somehow addictive to me—drafting the plot outline, then writing the chapters in detail and seeing the scenes and characters come to life… It’s awesome ❤️

So I guess it’s no surprise I simply resumed writing this month. As the title suggests, I continued working on the Kissing Monsters series, and so I’ve written book 4, KISSING GHOSTS.

Since book 2 still has to be released, I can’t tell you guys anything about it, but let’s just say that book 4 was exciting to write! 😉 There were some developments in the story that even managed to surprise me (HENCE THE MAGIC OF THE WRITING PROCESS!!), and the story line allowed me to discover even more of the world I’ve created for the series. Also, Kiss’s character makes a massive development that will influence the rest of the books, making me excited to find out what more I’ll also discover about Zane and the other characters 😀

I can’t say too much yet, but you can expect the release of KISSING GHOSTS somewhere near the end of 2020… ?

 

• New book trailer premiere: KISSING MONSTERS

Yes! Indeed! Yesterday the official book trailer for KISSING MONSTERS finally went online, kick-starting the continuation of the series.

Honestly, as the author, just watching the trailer makes my heart pound:

 

 

More Kissing Monsters trailers will be published alongside the future book releases, so stay tuned! If you’d like, please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t already so you won’t miss a single trailer~

 

• Writing some more: KISSING NIGHTMARES

After finishing book 4, it’s hard for me to stop. My mind already started shifting the puzzle pieces for the next book into place and I actually finished the plot outline for KISSING NIGHTMARES, book 5, a couple of days ago. I began writing the actual manuscript yesterday!

It’s going well, and I’m actually wondering how soon I’ll be finishing this series, since it’ll be 8 books in total…

Well, you do the math 😉

 

img_1848

 

• And… relaxation?

To be honest, writing could very well be the ultimate form of relaxation to me (lol), but yes, since it’s the summer holidays, I have also given myself some time to do other things.

For example, I’ve been binge-reading for a bit! I actually feel like I haven’t read enough at all this year, too busy with writing books instead, and I really started to miss it. So, on that note, I sat down last week and read for three full days—I was reading House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas, which is the first book in her brand-new adult fantasy Crescent City series, and it was AMAZING.

Currently I’m reading Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan, which I’m also enjoying immensely. It’s a relief, really, to be able to read for long periods of time again. This way it takes me no longer than a week to read a book, instead of three 😉

To share my love for reading, I’ve started a new photo series online (on Instagram, for example~) called “Lynn’s Reading Corner”, in which I share my current reads. I’m actually working to add more of a personal touch to my social media appearance. which I hope you can appreciate 🙂 Just so, you know, you get more of an idea of “the person behind the author”. Even though most of my life revolves around my writing, I do have other activities 😛

Also, I’ve been playing some video games—at the start of July I ordered Pokémon Shield for the Switch (twenty years later and the games still manage to steal my heart; they’re SO much fun ❤️), and a couple of weeks ago my dad actually bought Ghost of Tsushima, which we’ve been playing together ever since; the graphics are amazing and the gameplay is really great; the combat dynamics are so smooth and effective. Loving it 😀

Meanwhile, I keep getting new ideas. I actually have 9 different book series I want to work on. Two of them are the Kissing Monsters series and the Insomnia Saga, so at least I’m working on some of them, but it’s a struggle not to give in and take on another project! x”D COME ON, LYNN. CONTROL YOURSELF.

 

Well, this writing update has become longer than I expected! Guess I had more to tell you guys than I initially thought.

The summer is strange, though not necessarily bad; I’m genuinely enjoying the things I can do while living in preventive quarantine… and hey, all this actually gives me more time to write, which I consider a very good thing for my mental health, because I have so many ideas my head feels like on the verge of exploding some days 😛 (Let’s hope it won’t, though.)

What is your summer like?

COMING UP NEXT MONTH: On August 18th we’ll be celebrating the release of KISSING SHADOWS, the sequel to KISSING MONSTERS! It won’t be long now… 😀

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…

• 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!

The Insomnia Files TEASER | File #2: KAY SOMNUS (Chapter 1)

The Insomnia Files TEASER | File #2: KAY SOMNUS (Chapter 1)

“Control. Focus. Be the master. Not the puppet.”

 

Hey there, Sleepwalkers, and welcome to Teaser Tuesday!

In anticipation to the April 7th release of The Insomnia Files (Insomnia Saga #1.5), a short story collection, I’ll be sharing a teaser today of the second file, KAY SOMNUS.

 

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?

 

Did you know? The first story, JODI COLLINS, is available as a free eBook! Find out more.

 

Today I’d like to give you all a sneak peek to the second story, written from Kay’s perspective — so hereby I’ll be sharing CHAPTER 1: BLOOD AND BROTHERHOOD.

 

[SPOILER WARNING: If you haven’t read INSOMNIA (Insomnia Saga #1) yet, the following chapter will contain major spoilers that could affect your reading experience. So… read on at your own risk — or quickly close this tab 😉 ]

 


FILE #2: KAY SOMNUS

 

CHAPTER 1

BLOOD AND BROTHERHOOD

Standing on the altar is a black cross, its surface inlaid with blood-red stones. It’s for my mother. Although she had been raised in Somnus, she was originally from Miller, our neighboring city filled with churches that tower into the sky. I had been there a couple of times with my parents, back when they were still alive. I can still vividly remember my mother telling me she enjoyed visiting Miller because she knew her father and mother had always been fond of the city—yet that to her, Somnus had become her true home.

    I swallow, recalling her face. It’s easy; next to the cross, there is a picture of her and my father.

    Recalling her voice, however, is getting harder.

    Two years. It’s been two years since I watched her and my father die.

    The blood—I can still smell it. Their screams—I can still hear them. The pain—I can still feel it.

    The scars—

    They’re still there. A part of me. No matter where I go, I carry them with me.

    I briefly touch my right shoulder, and I can feel the thick, raised edges of my scars, hidden beneath my shirt. Stiffening, I lower my hand. My gaze hardens as I look away from the cross, away from the picture of my parents—instead, I narrow my eyes as I watch the flames of the lit candles, shivering as though they can feel the November cold creeping in through the cracks of the rose window.

    Shivering, as though they’re afraid of something.

    Of me. The monster.

    I inhale deeply, but my lungs feel tight. I wrench my gaze away from the candles, blinking a few times to get the colored spots out of my vision, and stare at my reflection in the window instead.

    I’m at the top floor of the Somnus Academy, where I’ve been born and raised. It’s my home. My parents started living here after my father took over the role as principal from my grandfather, a man I can barely remember for he died when I was still little. My brother and I have never known anything else but this.

    It seemed fitting, after our parents’ deaths, to build this small, personal shrine right here; in the living room, where we once came together to eat, to… To be a family, even though a part of me has always felt removed from that concept, like I was an island all on my own. Although my parents and Aiden wanted me to come to theirs, I simply couldn’t cross the sea, no matter how hard I swam. All I did was drift farther and farther away from them.

    From my family. From everyone.

    I can’t remember anything else than that I feel different. Different, from everybody else. And I know it isn’t them. It’s me.

    And this feeling, this knowledge has only grown stronger ever since what happened two years ago. Since I got scarred.

    I am the monster that’s hiding in the shadows. The monster that pretends to be human by fighting the other demons. The monster that lies, every single day, not just to others, but to himself as well.

    You can be more than this, I tell myself over and over again. Deep down, you haven’t changed. You are still their son. You are still Kay Somnus.

    And that name—Kay Somnus—is the sole reason I’m standing here tonight, two years after becoming a Sleepwalker, readying myself for my final exam to become a Summoner, even though I am only fifteen years old. Students are supposed to take their finals at eighteen, but I am not an average student.

    And I will never be an average Summoner either.

    Again, my eyes stray to my right shoulder in the window’s reflection—and that’s when I see him standing there, watching me.

    I turn around to my brother.

    His hair is dark like mine, but where mine’s unruly, his is long and slicked back into a tail at the nape of his neck. He wears an impeccable white collar shirt, black pants, and his shoes are polished to a shine. With twenty-seven he’s twelve years older than I am—the youngest principal of all Summoner academies, and one of the best and youngest Summoners known to the world.

    The way he took over our parents’ role, the way he’s leading the school these days, would’ve made them proud.

    Sometimes, I wish I could tell him that. I know I should. And any other brother would have done that. But I am just his brother by blood—apart from that, I am an island. And no matter how hard I swim, I can’t seem to reach his.

    It’s not his fault. It’s me. All me.

    “It is almost time to leave, little brother,” Aiden says, his voice soft and familiar. He runs a hand over the back of one of the chairs in the left corner of the room, the brown leather soft and worn through time and use. “Are you ready for this?”

    His dark-blue eyes watch me carefully, as though he’s truly concerned, but I know which answer he expects to hear—and he should, since it’s the only answer I’ll ever give him: “I’m ready.”

    I am. Despite the nerves running through me, the unrest buzzing in my body even as I went for a run this morning, even while I was training this afternoon, finding my rhythm as I swung and caught the nunchakus, the chains ringing softly. I am ready.

    “Good.”

    “I should go,” I say, walking over to the coat rack next to the door to get my jacket. I reach for it, but pause as the wooden floor creaks and Aiden suddenly puts his hand on my arm. I look at him, frowning slightly.

    He reaches for his neck and pulls something out from under his shirt. I stare at the silver necklace with its small, gleaming cross that he’s holding out to me. My mouth turns dry. My stomach feels hollow and it’s not just because I barely ate anything tonight.

    “Take it,” Aiden murmurs.

    I stare at it for a long moment, unable to move. It was our mother’s. She always used to wear it, tucked beneath her clothes. For luck, she claimed.

    She also wore it the night she died.

    Luck.

    Such a useless word.

    “No,” I say tightly.

    “She’d want you to wear—”

    “I don’t believe in lucky charms,” I grind out, my voice suddenly rough, unable to look away from the gleaming thing. “You know that.”

    “I do.” Aiden doesn’t lower his hand though, and keeps holding it out to me. “But she gave it to me the night I took my final exam. And I know she would have given it to you too, tonight, if she were still here.” His words are spoken quietly, sounding brittle.

    The death of our parents is a wound. A wound that won’t heal.

    I suddenly feel cold.

    “Let’s continue the tradition, no matter how you feel,” Aiden goes on after a silence. “Please.”

    Please. He hardly uses that word. Aiden is proud. He never begs.

    I tear my gaze away from the necklace to look at him. These days, I’m nearly as tall. His eyes, however, are darker than mine. I can see and feel them scanning every inch of my face.

    “This is your final, Kay,” he says. “Make them proud.”

    His words make me glance over at the altar. Something rises up in me, something that’s cold and hot at once, and there’s a sudden ache in the back of my throat. I reach for the necklace and put it on. The small metal cross still feels warm as I tuck it beneath my shirt.

    I tug my jacket from the coat rack, shrug it on, and move to open the door. Yet before I can, I sense Aiden stepping closer. His shadow falls over me. “Watch yourself tonight,” he quietly warns me. “Don’t expose yourself. What happened last time during your mock exam—you can’t let that happen tonight.”

    I tense, my fingers tightening around the doorknob. “I know,” is all I say.

    “All right.” Aiden pauses. “Good luck, little brother.”

    For a moment, I don’t move. Perhaps I should thank him. Perhaps I should turn around, clasp his hand, or embrace him.

    That’s probably what anybody else would’ve done in a situation like this.

    But I—I simply can’t. I don’t know how to.

    I know what’s expected of me, a person, a human being. But it’s not who I am. I can’t take this step. I can’t cross this bridge, I can’t close this distance.

    Blood and brotherhood. I know what it means, and yet, somehow, it’s out of my reach.

    When I was little, Aiden used to pick me up, carry me on his back, and embrace me. Our parents, too. My father patted me on the head. My mother kissed me on the cheek. But I never hugged any of them back. I never went over to them myself to hold their hand or snuggle up to them, like I saw other children do. It never felt natural.

    Maybe my heart is a closed-off thing.

    I don’t know. I don’t know any better than being this way—and still… I do feel like, sometimes, I’m missing something everybody else seems to have.

    But I’m different. I lose myself in books; fiction and non-fiction, it doesn’t matter to me. I lose myself in endless hours filled with training. I lose myself in sparring fights, I lose myself in perfecting every Light spell I’ve been taught and those I taught myself. I lose myself in practical things, and not in emotions.

    I’m different—and so, I don’t say anything to Aiden as I open the door, and leave without looking back.

 

+ + +

 

The Somnus Academy is never truly quiet. The students are in bed, and so are the Summoners who are off-duty, but all the others are still out and about to either make their rounds in the city, or to sit in vigil when it’s their watch, awaiting the ever-possible emergency call that signals a Nightprowler attack.

    The same goes for tonight—but now, for the first time, I truly seem to notice how many people are still milling about.

    I slow to a halt at the foot of the wooden stairs. The entrance hall is large, with a Gothic rib-vault ceiling, and a large clock with Roman numerals. Earthenware vases line the terracotta-colored walls, though I can barely see those—there aren’t supposed to be this many people here.

    My frown deepens as my gaze skips over their faces, until I finally find the two I’m looking for:

    Martha Bates, forty years old, dark-blond hair that frames her face. Unmarried and no children. Former student of the Somnus Academy, who then became a Theory-lesson teacher. A strong soldier and also a mentor; every single student she takes under her wing grows out to be a great Summoner.

    Owen Radcliff. Seventeen years old. Short-cropped hair, broadly built, jeans stuffed into his army boots. Has already passed several mock-exams with flying colors, and is waiting for his eighteenth birthday so he can take his final, as are the rules. Has been scouted by one of the Somnus Academy’s talent scouts at twelve, when he apparently stood up for a boy who got bullied by defending him when he got attacked. Wants to be a teacher at the academy once he graduates, and these days he’s trying out for becoming a martial arts instructor. He’s Martha Bates’ best pupil.

    I know all about everyone who works here, as well as the top-students.

    Bates and Radcliff will accompany me tonight, to oversee my final exam.

    I want to walk over to them, but hesitate. Aiden and Abel Anderson—family friend and the school’s vice principal—came with me during my mock exam last September. That has been the last time I’ve been up against a Nightprowler. I did pass the exam, but not the way a Summoner is supposed to.

    I can’t let that happen again tonight. I can’t afford to slip up.

    Not tonight. Not with them.

    Drawing in a steadying breath, I make my way over to Martha Bates and Owen Radcliff.

    “There you are.” Bates smiles. “Are you ready to leave?”

    I nod.

    Her smile widens before she steps away, leading us to the back exit to leave the building.

    Radcliff falls into step beside me. “Just ignore everybody else,” he murmurs to me.

    I frown at him.

    He raises an eyebrow and gestures around the entrance hall. “Haven’t you noticed all these people? They’re all here to see you off—if you pass your final tonight, you’ll be the youngest Summoner in history.”

    Normally, it’s not allowed for someone younger than eighteen to become a full-time Summoner—but since I am Kay Somnus

    I quickly scan the hallway, again noticing the absurd amount of people gathered here. But now I actually feel their eyes linger on me. Some offer me a smile, while others fold their arms and shoot me skeptic looks.

    I stiffen under the attention, but then Martha Bates has already opened the door of the back exit and we step outside. We cross the parking lot, lit by multiple streetlights, passing dozens of black, gleaming academy cars. It’s late November and cold air bites into my cheeks, but I barely feel the chill. Nervous energy courses through me, and my jacket feels too warm. Stifling.

    Sliding into the backseat of the car Martha Bates has just unlocked, I briefly wonder if Aiden is watching me from the rose window on the top floor; I can feel the metal of the cross rest against my skin.

    But it does not feel like a wish for good luck.

    It feels like a warning.

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: INSOMNIA (Insomnia Saga 1)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: INSOMNIA (Insomnia Saga 1)

“I had become the monster of fairytales. A creature that was feared, and had to be locked away forever.”

 

Today is the day!: The official release of INSOMNIA, the first book in the Insomnia Saga series ?

The Insomnia Saga is an action-packed Dark Fantasy Upper Young Adult series, set in a fictional modern world, where people can wield actual Light as a weapon which they use to fight the greatest enemy of mankind—demons, called the Nightprowlers.

 

INSOMNIA is available worldwide in paperback and eBook edition; visit this page to find the direct link to your store of preference!

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

• INSOMNIA (Insomnia Saga #1)

I caught my reflection in the mirror and looked at the girl staring back at me. Long, brown hair, falling over thin shoulders; tanned skin; green eyes; arms wrapped in bandages, hiding scars.

And at once, I was able to see what everybody else saw.

I had become the monster of fairytales. A creature that was feared, and had to be locked away forever.

 

Jodi Collins is a Sleepwalker.

An outcast. A pariah.

Five years ago, she was attacked by a creature darker than shadows, a demon without a face, a monster hungry for her body: a Nightprowler.
A nightmare that comes to life as soon as the sun sets, drenching the world in darkness.

When a Nightprowler attacks you, two things can happen: it will either claim your body to use as a host, or it will mark you as a Sleepwalker.

Sleepwalkers are feared and despised, believed to conspire with the Nightprowlers and threaten mankind.

Stigmatized by the telltale scars of the Night, Jodi and her parents were forced to move to the slums of Reid, where the alleys are filled with vagrants during the day, and Nightprowlers during the night. No school or employer would have her.
And her parents blamed her for destroying their life.

Now seventeen years old, Jodi is working for the Summoners—the worldwide army that has been battling the Nightprowlers for centuries—who hire her to defeat a Nightprowler that lures countless of victims into its castle while disguising itself as a human; a Nightprowler too dangerous for an average human to fight. It seems like it can only be defeated by another creature of the dark: a Sleepwalker.

Unable to refuse this mission and the money it will earn her, Jodi sets out to find the Nightprowler—but not on her own.
Help comes in the form of the arrogant Kay Somnus, a young Summoner disgusted by Sleepwalkers. And yet, they have to find a way to combine their forces and exorcize this Nightprowler.

Jodi’s future depends on this mission—but what does Kay expect to gain from it?

A castle of darkness and storms, filled with whispers and skulls.
Secrets will be revealed. Lives will be changed.
Neither Jodi nor Kay will ever be the same.

 


 

I’ve been working so hard and long toward the international publication of INSOMNIA…; it actually feels a bit “unreal” 😉 However, I hope you will all enjoy this first book in the Insomnia Saga!

It’s dark, it’s freaky, I’ve been told by beta-readers that it can be downright creepy at times, yet I hope you’ll all be able to find the light (or actual Light) in this story as well. I’ve written INSOMNIA with a certain philosophy in mind:

INSOMNIA is about the never-ending fight between light and darkness, something I’ve taken quite literal in this book, but the philosophy behind the Summoners and their Light is one quite close to my own personal philosophy about life: I do believe in inner strength. I believe anyone can achieve anything as long as they don’t give up, as long as they keep fighting, and, especially, as long as they believe in themselves.

And on that note — thank you for your interest in INSOMNIA, and please enjoy this first installment in the Insomnia Saga; more releases are coming soon! ?
