My comrade in magic writing at Boroughs Publishing Group shares inspiration and fairy allure….
It’s Publisher Week at the romance fiction blog, Romance Lives Forever. Today, they’re featuring books from Boroughs Publishing Group with those irresistible guys who know what they want and how to get it. What is it about a hero that makes us want to hold out for one? Well, hold out no more. Here are some great books that deliver a hero…
Escaping for some love in the afternoon is a nice thought for a free spirit without a job, school program, kids, or obligations. But why can’t we hard-working souls steal away for a little afternoon delight? The answer is: We can!
And I don’t mean the kind of tryst that Kristen Stewart had with director Rupert Sanders. Stay out of trouble. My suggestion is to download some short romance stories to your ereaders. For cheaper than the cost of a cup of coffee, you can enter an idyllic romance replete with gorgeous locales, heart-thrumming emotion, and intoxicating characters. I download my shorts onto my Android phone. Size doesn’t matter. I’m still able to achieve reader satisfaction in small words loaded with passionate moments.
Download a quick tryst. Be voracious. Some major digital publishers already have a specified short romance line, like All Romance eBooks. The other majors, like Carina Press, Samhain Publishing, and Hatchette’s Forever Yours imprint make it a bit harder to find the novellas because they don’t break them down by length. Go directly to indie romance publisher websites, and search short stories or novellas.
My romance publisher, Boroughs Publishing Group, is tailoring their shorter romances for lunchtime rendezvous. On September 14th, Boroughs launches their Lunchbox Romance line with three new short stories: Vertigo by Elisabeth Silvers, Some Like it Haute by Jillian Leigh and The Shop Girl and the Vampire by @First Sight Grand Prize winner, Ciar Cullen.
And stay tuned. I’ll be submitting my own fictional liaisons for your afternoon delight.
Enjoy your trysts!
I’ve been working with an amazing marketing consultant, Lisa Pietsch, to create a new look for my website/blog. Summoning Magic on the Page is the tagline for this oasis of genie lore, fiction, history, and photos related to all of these things. Please click the follow button on the right side of this page and join me on this magic carpet ride of discovery and exploration into the world of the jinn.
Over the coming weeks and months, you’ll read some shocking facts and fascinating tidbits about a realm that is mostly misunderstood. I’ll share the stories that I uncover in my research (some of them will be actual news accounts of genie encounters, some will be archaeological finds, historical facts, or ancient superstitions) and I’ll keep you posted about the new stories I’m creating based on the jinn.
Currently, The Genie Ignites is available from Boroughs Publishing Group for ereaders, phones, laptops, and most other digital divination. Pick it up today if you haven’t already. Meanwhile, I’m currently onto the edits for book two of the Zubis Chronicles series, which is titled The Genie Smolders. The editor on this book is the sharp and insightful Editor-in-Chief Christopher Keeslar, formerly of Dorchester. That fact alone is a guarantee of a hot, happenin’ and very well written romance.
Take a look around the site and let me know what you would like to see or feel free to share your own fascinating facts about genies.
Sincere thanks to Lisa Pietsch for unleashing this vibrant genie world with her extraordinary marketing savvy. I highly recommend her marketing services. If you’re an author like I am who mostly wants to write but also recognizes the need to get my books into people’s hands, you’re going to need some help. Lisa Pietsch is that person. She built a new website, linked all my social networking, and quadrupled my Facebook reach to readership in less than a week.
Let’s get started. Go click “follow” and fasten your silky sashes.
Join me in a toast!
The contract is signed! The Genie Ignites, my new paranormal romance novel, has been bought by Boroughs Publishing Group. Champagne all around! I’m excited about partnering with Boroughs to bring this book to readers. Boroughs is a new and savvy digital romance publisher that launched in December. They have a good handle on the market and on the narrative, with an eye on especially solid writing. It’s true, as their tagline announces, that this is “Where Story Matters.” The cover isn’t ready yet, but as soon as it is, you’ll be the first to see it.
The full title of this novel is The Genie Ignites: Book One of the Zubis Chronicles. And where there’s a book one, there’s bound to be a book two, a book three, and possibly a book four. I’m already hard at work on the second story and carefully unfurling the fiery romance between Bethany O’Brien and Zubis.
Relationships are hard, especially one between an enigmatic genie and a sassy but intrepid human. Bethany is a 21st-century woman with a career, ambition, and bills. She doesn’t remember how she once felt about a nearly 4,000-year-old genie named Zubis who suddenly invades her world, but he certainly remembers her. In a previous incarnation, Bethany was an important temple priestess who apprenticed to the jinn. Zubis is powerful, alluring, and infuriatingly bemused by Bethany’s skepticism. He once vowed to love her forever and has no plans of breaking his vow. Along with returning glimmers of this past life, Bethany must soon confront a citizenship in shambles, a job in jeopardy, and a mandate from an ancient society to kill the genie of her dreams. Although the priestess she once was had been taught that a romance with a jinni must never be, Bethany gradually realizes that her love for Zubis must never be forgotten. She will risk her citizenship, her job, and her life to save him.
I’m rooting for Bethany and Zubis and I hope you will, too. Watch this space for release information and news about my book blog tour in March.Best Wishes, Kellyann
