The Sea of Her

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! 😀

OFFICIAL COVER REVEALS & RELEASE DATES: The Sea of Her 5 and 6 | the final books

OFFICIAL COVER REVEALS & RELEASE DATES: The Sea of Her 5 and 6 | the final books

Dear Weepers of Pearls and Wild Strangers from the Sea,

At last, the time has come for me to reveal the final two covers in The Sea of Her series: book 5 THE PEARLS OF HER and book 6 THE SHORE OF HIM ❤️

Those of you who have read and finished book 4 have most probably already seen the cover for book 5 as it’s announced in the back, and the cover has been out there on Goodreads for a couple of months now — but today marks its official reveal and that of the very final book in the series, which hasn’t been shown anywhere before 😉

 

Leilani’s and Keanu’s battle against false Kings and Queens in order to save the ocean continues in book 5, and comes to a grand finale in book 6 — but there is more for them to fight against but the curse that has been poisoning the sea for so long: as their pasts and true identities unravel more and more, they both have demons to conquer and choices to make. It brings them closer and deepens their love—but will it last, will this war bind them together forever… or tear them apart instead?

 

Ready for the covers to be revealed?

You’d better be, because here they come!:

 

 

 

Personally, I’m so happy with my designer’s work and how the final covers came out ❤️ I’m having a hard time believing this journey with Leilani and Keanu is almost coming to an end; it’s been a year now that I began working on it, and I still remember those first few weeks of dipping my toes into this tale and meeting them both. It’s making me rather nostalgic, actually.

Sorry. Emotional writer’s brain talking. Moving on:

 

Release dates (mark your calender!)

• THE PEARLS OF HER releases on March 15th in ebook and paperback

• THE SHORE OF HIM releases on June 21st in ebook and paperback

 

Please look forward to these final two installments of The Sea of Her 🙂

A Belated Happy 2022 — a year of creative freedom

A Belated Happy 2022 — a year of creative freedom

No, I hadn’t forgotten about this blog. No, I wasn’t planning on remaining silent for so many weeks.

Yet I have, and here is why 🙂

 

Usually, at the end of every year, I always post an overview on December 31st in which I look back on the entire year. I revisit every single month and tell about the books I’ve written and published, as well as summarize all the things I’ve done and achieved.

However, at the end of 2021 I simply didn’t feel like doing so. Because I had been revisiting the year over and over in my head, and for some reason the feeling crept up on me that I hadn’t enough to tell you guys. That I hadn’t achieved enough that year.

Which isn’t true. In 2021 I published the final books of the Kissing Monsters series, published two new installments of the Insomnia Saga, and began publishing The Sea of Her series. You could say it was a year in which I said goodbye, kept going, and gave life to something new. Also, I published 10 new titles. If that’s not an achievement, then I don’t know what is.

But the fact remains that 2021 wasn’t a particular spectacular year for me. Nothing truly grand happened. All I’d built up in 2020 just calmly kept going at a steady, easy pace. And as the final weeks of 2021 crept up, I started to feel disappointed with myself because… because why? Well, that’s a very good question, because I worked just as hard as I had other years, and there was no reason to start blaming myself.

As New Year’s Eve came around, though, I’d managed to clear out my messy thoughts, and felt a lot lighter: I simply had to realize that it’s okay if some years are a little slow. In hindsight, 2021 was a year meant to slow down and just work quietly behind the scenes. A year that wasn’t meant for noise and grand happenings. And that’s fine.

Anyway, I could’ve posted something on New Year’s Day, of course, but I still needed a bit of extra reflection and quiet time for myself. I took a break from social media as well, and haven’t shared anything about my plans for 2022 yet.

I do have plans, though. Oh yes, I certainly do 😀

 

Of course, I can’t predict what 2022 will bring me — it can go absolutely crazy. But either way, I have granted myself permission to go absolutely crazy in my writing. Meaning, I am giving myself some creative freedom this year: I am allowing myself to work on ANY project that calls out to me.

Last week I’ve already finished the fifth book in The Sea of Her series, THE PEARLS OF HER, which will be prepared for its release on March 15th in the next several weeks. But instead of diving straight into the sixth and final book, I am first going to work on the opening book of a brand new series (which I’m going to keep absolutely secret for now 😉 ). Also, this year I’ll be working on the final books in the Insomnia Saga, SOMNUS and The Somnus Fileswhile also working on brand new projects.

In 2022 I will probably publish less new works than I did in the past two years. Due to some personal circumstances I’ve fallen a bit behind on my writing schedule, and the reason I felt down at the end of 2021, was because I found myself stressing a bit because I was working from release to release and writing on deadlines.

This year, I will take the time to “stock up”, so to speak, on brand new series which I can then publish over the following years in a more rapid pace, just like before 😉

I am absolutely stoked about this, and of course I’ll keep you all posted! The books that will definitely release this year are books 5 and 6 of The Sea of Her, as well as books 4 and 4.5 of the Insomnia Saga. Whether there’ll be any surprise releases, I do not know yet — but never say never; anything can happen ♥️♥️

 

Thank you for reading, and a belated happy 2022 everyone! Let’s make the most of it 😀

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Deep of Him (The Sea of Her 4)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Deep of Him (The Sea of Her 4)

The Queen of the Ocean has risen.
Once more, the Crown has been claimed by a tainted soul.

 

 

Dear Weepers of Pearls & Wild Strangers from the Sea,

And here we are, in the final month of 2021… which means that today I am celebrating my final release of this year! The Deep of Him, book 4 in The Sea of Her series, a Paranormal Romance in a tropical ocean setting, is out today! ❤️

The Queen of the Ocean has risen. Once more, the Crown has fallen into the hands of a tainted soul. In book 4, Leilani is taken to the sinister world of the Deep, where nothing is as it seems and the truth of Keanu’s past is slowly unraveling…

 

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

Amazon
Kobo
Barnes&Noble
Google Play
Smashwords

 

The Deep of Him is available in paperback edition for $10.99 on:

Amazon

 

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• The Deep of Him (The Sea of Her #4)

The Queen of the Ocean has risen.
Once more, the Crown has been claimed by a tainted soul.

As a new curse comes to life, Leilani feels the sea slip into shadows darker than ever before, and realizes it is up to her to defend it.

But how can she fight back against the most powerful queen all of mankind has ever known?
How can she fight back, when her Guardian, her dear stranger from the sea—the one who has been chosen to protect her, the one man she has given her heart to—is wearing a mask she cannot see behind?

Leilani is taken to the sinister world of the Deep, where there are countless secrets to be unraveled, violent games are being played, and where she will have to choose whether she will remain the girl she has always been… or embrace the side of herself that she’s been running from for years.

Maybe only then, she can save Keanu.
Perhaps only then, she can save the sea.

 


 

The Deep of Him takes the story of Leilani and Keanu into darker depths. Writing it felt very different from the previous three books — and yet, it simply felt right for their tale to take on such a sinister twist, as I’d been hinting at it since book one. Confronting them with their own shadows and that of the world around them, really made them grow as characters and I enjoyed seeing them change, even though sometimes it was painful.

It was such a special manuscript to work on ❤️

Many questions will be answered in this book — yet many more will be raised 😉

 

Book 5, The Pearls of Her, will release soon in eBook and paperback on March 15th in 2022!

 

As this year is coming to an end and The Deep of Him is my final release, I just want to thank all my readers for their unwavering support. I keep repeating myself, but it truly means the world to me to see you enjoying my books 🙂 Thank you, thank you, thank you!

 

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! 😀

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Tide of Her (The Sea of Her 3)

NEW RELEASE | OUT NOW: The Tide of Her (The Sea of Her 3)

The King is lost.
A curse is unleashed.
Leilani’s identity is unraveled.
And Keanu’s past is watching them from the shadows.

 

 

Dear Weepers of Pearls & Wild Strangers from the Sea,

Months are going by fast, time is running, sprinting, rushing on, and here we are, in the final week of October — which means that today, on the 26th, we’re celebrating the release of The Tide of Her, book 3 in The Sea of Her series, a Paranormal Romance in a tropical ocean setting ❤️

Leilani and Keanu have fled to Cosmos Island, where they live in secret for they can’t let anyone find them. Meanwhile, Leilani is trying and failing to get much-needed answers from the sea, and Keanu keeps his eyes fixed on the shadows, constantly afraid that his past will soon catch up to him…

 

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

Amazon
Kobo
Barnes&Noble
Google Play
Smashwords

 

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

Amazon

 

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• The Tide of Her (The Sea of Her #3)

The Twins are gone.
Leilani and Keanu have taken the Crown.
And they can’t let anyone find them.

The forces of the sea are keeping them on Cosmos Island, where they try hard not to get noticed and live their new life in secret, while keeping the Crown safe and out of anyone’s reach.

But Keanu sees danger in every face and every gesture, and Leilani is trying but failing to get answers from the sea. She has no idea what is expected from her, no idea where she’s supposed to go, what she’s supposed to do.

Or where to find the King of the Ocean.

Then Leilani and Keanu meet an enigmatic woman, who claims to have all the answers they need—but it soon appears to come at a cost which neither Leilani and Keanu are sure they can pay, especially when it seems that while Leilani is growing stronger, Keanu only grows weaker and weaker still.

The King is lost.
A curse is unleashed.
Leilani’s identity is unraveled.
And Keanu’s past is watching them from the shadows.


 

The Tide of Her marks the first half of the entire series, and it was such an intense book to write. On the one hand, the story slowed down and I got to explore the relationship between Leilani and Keanu and add some more details to the overall world-building, while on the other, the pace drastically picks up near the end and I finally got to write some scenes that were in my head ever since I began working on book 1 at the start of this year.

Without giving away any spoilers, let’s just say that Leilani’s and Keanu’s journey is still far from over, and that they’ll have to face many more challenges.

Book 4, The Deep of Him, will release soon in eBook and paperback on December 21st!

Once more, thanks to all my readers who are supporting this series, and with that I mean both who leave wonderful reviews, as well as the quiet ones who I know are out there, even if we don’t speak (just know that you can drop me a message anytime you want!) 😉 Thank you~

 

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! 🙂

COVER REVEAL & BOOK RELEASE: The Sea of Her 3 and 4

COVER REVEAL & BOOK RELEASE: The Sea of Her 3 and 4

Dear Weepers of Pearls and Wild Strangers from the Sea,

Today I am officially revealing the covers for THE TIDE OF HER and THE DEEP OF HIM, books 3 and 4 (out of 6) in The Sea of Her series!

Of course, if you’ve read/finished the second book, chances are you’ve already seen the cover for book 3 in the back, as is the case in both the ebook and paperback edition… but I’m officially revealing it nonetheless (please bear with this excited writer). The cover for book 4, however, hasn’t been shown or leaked anywhere yet, so prepare to be surprised! 😉

 

The story of Leilani and Keanu continues in books 3 and 4 of The Sea of Her (Paranormal Romance), as Leilani unravels more and more secrets about her identity, Keanu desperately tries to outrun his past, and together they’ll have to find a way to accept their shared destiny and answer to the ocean’s demands, while trying not to let anyone or anything force them apart and drown their love…

 

And here we go… the cover reveals:

 

 

There they are, in gorgeous vibrant colors that scream ocean and magic ❤️ (screaming in the most pleasant of ways, naturally.)

What do you all think? Personally I totally love them; I think that they fit the previous two covers perfectly, and the color scheme is spot-on for the overall mood in both of the books. I just love that THE DEEP OF HIM feels a bit darker despite the bright shades of blue and purple, because it really fits the storyline, as I talked to you guys about in last week’s blogpost.

 

Release dates (mark your calender!)

• THE TIDE OF HER releases on October 26th in ebook and paperback

• THE DEEP OF HIM releases on December 21st in ebook and paperback

 

I’m looking forward to these releases, since I cannot wait for you all to read these installments of Leilani and Keanu’s story! Hopefully you’re just as excited as I am 😉

 

Please feel free to leave a comment down below, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask! You can also reach out to me on social media, or through email ( contact(at)lynnrobin.com )~

writing THE DEEP OF HIM

writing THE DEEP OF HIM

“I have failed the sea,” she whispers.

“Oh, dear Princess… haven’t we all?”

— The Deep of Him (The Sea of Her 4)

 

Dear Weepers of Pearls and Wild Strangers from the Sea,

If you happen to follow me on social media, you probably already know this… but last week I’ve begun working on the fourth book of The Sea of Her series, entitled THE DEEP OF HIM ❤️

I thought it would be fun to dedicate a blog post to tell you all a bit more about the writing process of this manuscript, such as what is currently inspiring me and how it feels to me to be working on this book 🙂

Shall we dive in?

 

Since book 3, THE TIDE OF HER, isn’t published yet, I can’t go into details as that would mean giving away a lot of spoilers (and nobody likes spoilers!), but I think it’s safe to say that going into the second half of the series (as this is book 4 out of 6) is pretty intense.

To be honest, as I was taking notes of all my ideas for THE DEEP OF HIM over the last summer while also working on the plot outline, filling out the details and deciding where the story would take the characters, I was equally excited and a little bit worried about where it was going.

Although the first three books certainly have some darker themes going on, there was also room for a lot of magic and (most of all!) romance. It made them quite relaxing projects to work on for me, as my characters actually had a chance to take a breather from time to time and even enjoy some cozy scenes, such as Leilani working in the restaurant, or her and Keanu exploring Hibiscus Island by visiting other towns and spending lazy afternoons in beautiful forests.

THE DEEP OF HIM, however, feels much grittier as it explores the darker themes that were mostly hinted at in the first books, forcing Leilani and Keanu into situations neither wants to be in, confronting them with choices of life and death. This made me a little apprehensive at first, as I wondered if this book would fit the other three and would answer the readers’ expectations (yes, you guys!).

But as I wrote the first few chapters last week and as I’ve been working on the manuscript this week as well… I’ve come to the realization there’s nothing to worry about. Leilani’s and Keanu’s characters are bound to grow and evolve, that’s what series are for after all — yet they still feel like the same persons to me, and the things they’ll be going through in this book have been inevitable from the very start.

The funny thing is, I was worried about the very same thing when I worked on book 2, since it has way more action than the first and also felt a lot darker to me — yet the reviews and responses I’ve received so far for this book have been nothing but enthusiastic, as many readers even said they enjoyed THE WAVES OF HIM even more than THE SEA OF HER, while already loving that one.

Working on THE DEEP OF HIM is absolutely awesome. I’m enjoying myself so much, because the chapters are filled with tension and shadows. The writing flow has been amazing from the very first day I began working  on it — today is the fourth day of writing, and I’ve already finished 15 chapters. Need I say more? 😉

 

Even though The Sea of Her series isn’t “Halloweenish” at all, this time of the year is certainly inspiring me, mostly because of the book’s darker atmosphere that just suits the autumn season so well.

But let’s talk about my other great source of inspiration when it comes to writing: MUSIC ❤️

To let you guys get a feel for this book, I’d like to share two tracks which I’ve been listening to non-stop while writing the first chapters! The first one has a bit of a sci-fi vibe going on, which may seem like an odd choice for me since The Sea of Her has not a single sci-fi element in it (how could it, if it’s a Paranormal Romance book, right?), yet the mood is simply perfect. The second track is a more tragic one, which I feel fits Leilani pretty well 🙂

 

 

I hope you enjoy this music as much as I do~

 

It’s time for me to wrap up this blog post, and get back to work on THE DEEP OF HIM 😉 I’m really enjoying the writing process (the flow is just magical), and super excited to see where this journey will take Leilani and Keanu — even if it leads them to the darker side of their world. I’m sure they’ll only come out of it stronger ❤️

 

Please look forward to THE TIDE OF HER, book 3 in the series, coming very soon on October 26th! I can’t wait for you all to read it 😀

Thanks so much for reading today’s post~

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

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 Waves of Him is available in paperback edition for $10.99 on:

Amazon

• The Waves of Him (The Sea of Her #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 ❤️❤️

 

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! 🙂

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!
