The Sea of Her

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 😉

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

 

 

Watch the official book trailer:

 

 

• 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!

 

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!
