Hot Off The Press…

Crazy Beautiful Kiss, part of the anthology, Story of a Kiss is live! Thirteen of us put together a collection of stories of unforgettable kisses just in time for February, the most romantic month of the year.

I’m so excited on the second day of release it’s doing amazing! We climbed the charts on Amazon to take the #8 spot for books (Literature/Fiction/Holidays), #9 for Kindle eBooks (Literature/Fiction/Holidays) and #48 Kindle eBooks Romance/Holidays.

First publishing Crazy Beautiful Lies in December 2015, and now Crazy Beautiful Kiss has had me on the seat of my pants. I was afraid to fail and what if my writing lacked connection to the reader?  That I was only a wanna be writer…but then the the emails, messages, blogs, tweets, FaceBook posts, and amazing reviews came in. I was awed and I’m still in awe. They helped me realize, I’m not only a wanna be writer, I am a writer!

CBL REVIEW TEASER

Amazon/Kindle Direct Publishing provides a nice graph of sales and watching Crazy Beautiful Lies keep trending upward has kept the butterflies fluttering in my stomach. When I hit the last button to upload it on Amazon/Kindle, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo, I vowed if only 50 people bought it, I would do a happy dance…AND I reached that goal on the very first day of publication. Over one month later, the sales are still making me smile. It’s like a dream…People a/k/a readers are buying it and loving it! Thank you all for your fantastic messages, comments, and reviews! I loved receiving each and every one.

I’ve been asked if I were going to write a sequel in Blake DeLuca’s point of view. The answer is no. BUT, I am going to do some excerpts and post them here on my blog. I’ll facebook and tweet about them so you don’t miss out on reading some of Blake’s dark and twisted reasoning. And how he felt when Jenna brought him to his knees and gave him redemption.

I’ve also been asked if Colin Williams and Calista DeLuca from Crazy Beautiful Kiss are going to get a full length novel? YEP! I don’t have a release date to give you as of yet, but it’s in the works and I’ll keep you updated. 🙂

Until next time,

Kathryn L. James (KJ)

Author: Kathryn L. James

I write contemporary romance under the name Kathryn L. James with a steamy edge. . .some say it borders erotica romance. I'm writing my first novel called Crazy Beautiful Lies and have fallen in love with my own characters Blake DeLuca and Jenna Capwell. I love a happy ending with angst along the way. My characters go through hell getting them to the HEA. When I'm not writing, I'm enjoying family time or at the day job as a nurse. Fortunately I have a day job, I happen to love! I married my high school sweetheart and after all these years still have it bad for him. :) We have three amazing kids who are grown and blessed with two little ones who visit often. And if we're going to tell everything about me, I can't leave out my sweet poodle who is usually in my lap while I'm pecking away on my story. I have an addiction to chocolate, love Moscato D'Asti and hates coconut cream and pecan pies.
