I’ve just finished building this brand-spanking-new website! One reason I wanted to switch from just a blog to a full-blown website was that I wanted a way to give my readers more information about my books. I know it can get confusing when there are series and such, so check out the Books menu item. Hover over Books, and underneath it you’ll see sub-menus for each series. These sub-pages put the books in the order in which they should be read, along with links to the main eBook stores.
Another cool thing on this website is the Writing Progress Bar on the right-hand side of the page. I will update this every day that I write so that you can see how the book I’m currently working on is progressing. My goal is to write 4000 words per day, and I think having this progress bar will help to motivate me.
If you’d like to send me an email, go to the Contact Me menu item and fill it out. The email will come right to my inbox.
Another nice feature is the Publishing Schedule menu item. You can take a quick glance to see what books will be coming out when.
If you find any typos, or have any suggestions for information you’d like to see, please send me an email through the Contact Me page.
I hope you enjoy the new website!
Lily’s Story News
I’m pleased to announce that the final book in the Lily’s Story
Trilogy, Love At Last
, is now available!
I’ve also released a boxed set of all 3 full-length novels, which includes He Loves Me Not, Don’t Look Back, and Love At Last. If you’ve only read He Loves Me Not, you may want to purchase the box set, as it is less expensive than buying each book individually.
Another announcement is that Over You is now FREE. I’m working on a sequel to Over You, called Second Chances. Pick up your free copy of Over You.
Love At Last
Cover Reveal and Publication Date
I hope everyone’s December is going well! I’m finally ready to start my Christmas shopping. I’ve been putting it off because I’ve been working hard writing the final book in the Lily’s Story saga. The title is Love At Last, and it will be released on January 17, 2014! I’m super excited for everyone who loves the Lily Story series to read it!
Here is the cover:
Now that I’m writing full-time (YAY), I can better plan my upcoming books. My plan is to release a new book every 3 months. Below is my planned release schedule for the next year or so.
November 11, 2013 Hunted as well as the Boxed Set of The Complete Trilogy
February, 2014 Book 3 of Lily’s Story (I don’t have an official title yet)
May, 2014 and August, 2014: Two additional books related to the Parallel Trilogy. This is due to overwhelming requests by the beta readers of Hunted, who want to know MORE about the characters and where things go in their lives. I don’t want to give a hint about the subject of the books as that might give too much away for those who have yet to read Hunted.
November, 2014 sequel to Over You
I’m so excited to write these books, as well as other books that I’ve already started writing. I appreciate all of my readers SO MUCH and am SO GRATEFUL to each and every one of you who have bought my books!
This week I’m participating in a book sale.
Three of my books are on sale now for $1.99 (normally $3.99).
The sale price ends on Friday.
Also, there are a number of other books by other authors that are reduced for this sale. The official sale is Wednesday, October 16th through Friday, October 18th. Enter to win a brand-new Kindle.
Now that Hunted has been sent to the first group of beta readers, I can give a firm release date. Hunted will be released on Monday, November 11!
On that same date I will release a boxed set of the Parallel Trilogy. It will include all three books in the Parallel Trilogy. Here is the cover of the eBook boxed set:
Thanks to all of you who volunteered to be a beta reader. I have enough now to give me the feedback I need.
Soon I’ll announce a specific release date for Hunted.
After taking your suggestions into account, here is an updated cover for Hunted. What do you think?
I’ll be done with the first draft in the next day or two and then I’ll work on revisions. After that I will give the book to beta readers for feedback. (This should happen in the next week or two.) I have several beta readers that I use, but I’d like to have more input. If you are interested in being a beta reader for Hunted, please email me at: christinekersey at hotmail.com
If I get a lot of responses, I’ll limit it to the first ten people who respond.
If you would like to be a beta reader, here is what I need from you (and be aware that you will receive the manuscript as a pdf file):
- You need to have read the first two books in the Parallel Trilogy.
- You need to commit to reading Hunted and filling out the questionnaire within one week of receiving the pdf file of the manuscript.
- You need to promise to not send the pdf file to anyone else.
- If you are so inclined, once the book has been released, a review on Amazon would be much appreciated.
What you get from me:
- You get to be one of the first people to read Hunted.
- I will give you a free eBook of Hunted after all editing has been completed. This would be either an epub or mobi file.
- If I find your comments helpful, I may use you again for other books (if you would like me to).
- I’ll give you a questionnaire so you know what kind of input I’m looking for.
There’s no better feedback for me than from those who read my books, so it is a great favor to me if you’re willing to read an early copy of Hunted and give me honest feedback.
I’d love everyone’s opinion on the cover for Hunted, the final book in the Parallel Trilogy. What do you all think? By the way, I’m almost done writing the book. It will be done by the end of this week. The way it’s going, it will be released in mid-November. I’ll announce a specific release date once I finish revisions.
