Demonic Illusions in Print!

Demonic Illusions paranormal book series by K.D. Reed

Man! This fall is full of excitement!

You read right! The entire Demonic Illusions series will be available in paperback this fall. Here are the details:

The entire series will be sold as a collection in paperback. To justify the production cost and to save a few trees (because trees are friends!!) I decided not to print the individual books separately. It just didn’t make sense to me. However, when you put the three together, it makes a perfect novel-length book. Bam! Just like that. I know a lot of my readers prefer a book in hand, so I opted to do it this way. Sadly, they have to be a little more patient than my eReader friends. But that’s okay! They’re nice people. And they deserve love and books to put on their shelves. The wait is almost over you beautiful people. Demonic Illusions will be in print this fall.

There will also be an eBook of all three in a “box set” type of situation. I know I like to have an entire series in one place. Convenience, aesthetics, whatever. It’s nice to have them all there.

Individual eBooks will be available too. So, if you’ve already got Books 1 and 2, you can snag Book 3 as normal. You won’t have to buy the other two again in the “box set” just to read the third book. That’d be a jerk move on my part. And, that’s not what I’m about. I want to write stories that people like. Then get them to the people in as many ways possible. I JUST WANT EVERYBODY HAPPY OKAY?

That’s it for today’s announcements. Be watching, though. I’ve got release dates to announce, covers to reveal, and books releasing soon. So, stay tuned. There’s a lot happening in the next month.

Also, don’t forget about Kevin (my science fiction, and first, book). It’s been nominated for a Summer Indie Book Award! Voting opens up September 1st and I’ll be posting more about that when the time comes.

See you soon! Author out.

 

2016 Summer Indie Book Awards!

Summer Indie Book Awards

Kevin has been nominated (by more than one person, might I add) for a Summer Indie Book Award!

This award is determined by votes, so expect a bit of spam come September 1st. You can vote for Kevin once a day September 1st through 10th. I’ll post the links when they’re available.

I’m quite honored by this nomination. Probably not going to write an acceptance speech or anything. But, I’m pretty excited.

Thank you everyone, again, for your undying support. You are all special angels and I love each and every one of you.

Why Your Family Name Did Not Come From a Mistake at Ellis Island

Ellis Island NYC
View of Ellis Island from a boat

This is a super interesting little article for two reasons:

  1. My husband came over in 2007 (A HUNDRED YEARS LATER) from Europe and had a name issue due to alphabet differences.
  2. My first book Kevin starts at Ellis Island because he’s from another planet, so in an odd, slightly humorous to me way he “immigrated”. (Him being sent there against his will as a prisoner is a whole other issue.)

Anyway, check this out if you like. I thought it was interesting.

And, you can get Kevin HERE.

Pinterest & Me

I am quite the Pinterest user. I’m on it all the time. Some say it’s an unhealthy addiction, but I don’t heed that kind of toxic talk. They’re just jealous of my awesome Pinterest skills.

Any who! The point is, I use it frequently when writing to stir up my creative juices. It helps to look at what I’m talking about. Let me illustrate that point a little:

I have many Pinterest boards for my books. I have a New York board for Kevin, I have a complete collection of what seems like randomness to others for Maia, and I have a Delilah board for my Demonic Illusions series.

Delilah is the demon in the series (debuting  in Demonic Impulse due out this weekend, January 9th) and she’s really fun. To help me understand/visualize/have more fun with her, I created a Pinterest board to refer to. It’s great! I can pin things I want to mention about her. I can go back to it, and remind myself about a certain trait. Sometimes, I just scroll through it, to kick off the dust if it’s been a few days since I visited her story.

It’s not just Sam’s story, it’s her story too. That’s what makes this book so great. There’s double, almost conflicting, views to everything.

The point of me prattling on about all of this is twofold:

  1. As a writer, Pinterest can be an awesome tool. I highly recommend it to others for help. Also, it’s a fun way to explore your character, settings, or to find all sorts of writing advice. I’m there all the time for work related pins.
  2. If you want, you can check out my aforementioned boards, or just get to know me a little better, or follow me. I’m quite active there.

Here’s an example:

Delilah Eye

That’s a cool inspiration image I found for Delilah.

Fire Escape

This set me in the perfect mood when I was revising Kevin.

Thumbelina and Swallow

I love this. Maia is a retelling of Thumbelina. This illustration warms my heart, since my focus often centers on her relationship with the swallow. So great.

You get the idea. (And you can click the images to view the Pinterest boards.)

Keep an eye out for Demonic Impulse. I’m really excited, and quite proud of it. And fellow writers, do try Pinterest for career related assistance. I cannot rave about it enough.

 

Cyber Monday Sale!

Happy Cyber Monday, shoppers.

Since it’s the day of online dealsKevin is on sale for $.99. That’s not even a dollar! But it’s for Cyber Monday only! That means today. ONLY TODAY.

So, if you’ve been meaning to snag a copy of the ebook, now is the perfect opportunity. It can be gifted too, so for your friends and family who like to read digital content, it’s wonderful.

Thanks for all of your support. My readers mean a lot to me, and I’m really glad I can discount these for you guys.

 

We’re in Print!

FINALLY

The Cover!

Amazon came through, and has officially listed Kevin in paperback format! Now you can have a digital copy, a hard copy, or a signed hard copy. The last of those options will take a few weeks to get to you, as I have to first wait for them to get to me. But! If you want one, just comment below, or tweet me, or Facebook me, or email me at authorkdreed@gmail.com.

Either format of Kevin can be purchased by clicking on the link at the top of this page and to the right. Just click which version you want. (Alternatively, for a paperback, you can click the giant picture above you within this post)

I’m really excited about his. My happy dance was magnificent. I’d be a youtube sensation if anyone had been around (and able to stop laughing for 11 seconds) to record it.

I just want to give the whole wide world a hug and say THANK YOU for all of your continued support, and patronage.

Give-me-a-hug

Happy reading!

Good News!

And bad news

My proof copy of Kevin arrived today! It’s in print, and tangible and smells like a BOOK.

It’s also horrendous.

The page formatting is all off, it’s too big, and the font just isn’t what it should be.

But, the cover looks great!

The point is, we’re only a few agonizing short weeks away from a print version being available. Just a few… more… baby… steps…

baby-steps

Quite like Bob. “Baby steps onto the bus…”

Don’t Forget!

If you buy my book, and you like my book, you should review my book.

(If you haven’t bought my book, you can do so over there ——>)

Kevin is doing pretty well. I’m pleased. Amazon reviews are really helpful for reaching more of an audience. So please, leave me a review.

And, just so you know, those who do review Kevin get my undying love. I’m talking all of eternity, never ending, zombie level undying love.
