Duck! and News! and More News!

Hi Everyone,

Three posts in one, so if one part doesn’t interest you, keep reading another topic will turn up soon 🙂


Part One –

Duck! is out now!

image

It’s on Amazon, All Romance E-books and Goodreads. The print version is also on Createspace. Ever since midnight last night I’ve been waiting for it to go on line with Barnes & Noble so I could do all the links at the same time, but no luck yet. Will update when it goes on line 🙂

If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask in the comments section (or anywhere else where I’m bound to see it – I’m easy like that). If you’d like a review copy feel free to e-mail me.

In case you’ve managed to avoid reading it until now – here’s the blurb:

Raised among humans, Ori Jones only discovered he was an avian shifter six months ago. Unable to complete a full shift until he reaches his avian maturity, he still can’t be sure of his exact species.

But with species comes rank, and rank is everything to the avians. When a partial shift allows the elders to announce that they believe Ori to be a rather ugly little duckling, he drops straight to the bottom rung of their hierarchy.

Life isn’t easy for Ori until he comes to the attention of a high ranking hawk shifter. Then the only question is, is Ori really a duck—and what will his new master think when the truth eventually comes out?


Part Two –

I have an agent. Her name is Deidre Knight. Her agency is The Knight Agency and she’s really lovely. Huge shout out thanks to Tibby Armstrong for introducing us!

If you’re wondering what this means from a readers point of view, I’ll tell you where things stand at the moment.

I’m still going to be self publishing English language e-book editions and print on demand editions the same as I have been doing the last couple of years. I have four series on the go, and all of them will carry on as before – nothing cancelled, nothing altered. (Those four series are FIT Guys, Kinky Cupid, Avian Shifters and Werewolves & Dragons, btw.)

However, you might see foreign language editions of some of my books at some point in the future. Audio books are also a possibility.

Again, any questions, feel free to ask. I probably won’t know the answer, but you can still ask 🙂


Part Three –

I’m on Facebook. I didn’t actually kick or scream but a fair bit of dragging might have been involved, lol.

You can find my profile here – and friend me if you want to.

You can also find my author page here – and like that if you want to.

Everything’s a bare thin on the ground there at the moment, but I’ll add more as time goes on 🙂

Questions – well I know even less about Facebook than I do about agent, but you can take a shot if you like 🙂


And I think that is it for now…

Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!

Easy Maths!

Hi Everyone,

If you’ve read the dedication at the start of Axel’s Pup, you’ll already know that it was my 100th commercially available book (i.e. not counting freebies).

With percentages this easy to work out, I couldn’t resist.

Out of the 100 books…

By publisher:

  • 37 were published with Totally Bound
  • 38 were with Resplendence Publishing
  • 17 were with Amber Allure
  • 3 were published with All Romance E-books
  • 2 were with Riptide Publishing
  • 3 were indi/self published

By length:

  • 52 were short stories (Under 20k)
  • 37 were novellas (20-40k)
  • 7 were short novels (40-60k)
  • 3 were standard novels (60-100k)
  • 1 was a super length novel (Over 100k)

By sales (these are just based on comparing my books to my books, I have no idea how my sales compare to anyone else’s figures):

  • 21 had disappointing sales
  • 31 did okay
  • 17 did well
  • 11 did very well
  • 15 did great
  • 4 books had exceptional sales
  • 1 had sales that made me say wow!

By date:

  • 1 come out in 2008
  • 16 came out in 2009
  • 23 came out in 2010
  • 20 came out in 2011
  • 28 came out in 2012
  • 8 came out in 2013
  • 2 came out in 2014
  • 2 came out in 2015

By pairings:

  • 5 were MF
  • 1 was FM
  • 1 was MFM
  • 1 was MMF
  • 1 was FF
  • 1 was MMM
  • 90 were MM

Which means a whole 9 % of my stories have involved female main characters!

By genre/theme:

  • 85 were contemporary
  • 15 were paranormal
  • 5 had a Christmas theme
  • 4 had a Valentine theme

And it’s not a percentage, but another random fact – by my calculations, as well as taking me over 100 books, Axel’s Pup took me over 2 million published words.

And I think that’s enough numbers now!

*Hugs*

Kim.

P.S. If you remember me saying that my next post was going to be about what I’m planning to write next, that post will arrive tomorrow, as part of my April Newsletter-ish sort of post.
