Sincere apologies! It has taken me much longer than expected. I am delighted to report that book two, in my ‘Kylemore Abbey School’ series, is finally launched.
I find it hard to believe that book one, ‘K-Girls‘, was launched in 2013 and in today’s impulsive and impatient society, it has been a long wait for book two, ‘K-Girls Plus One‘. Thank you all for your patience.
You might find it as interesting as I did, to see what famous authors took years or more to follow up with their sequels. Not that I am not claiming to be famous by any means, but it is reassuring to know that I am not the worst when it comes to following up with the next book in a series!
To be honest, the loss of my brother did throw me for six, and I took two years to really recover from that (having written a memoir in between). So I am only thrilled to hoot my own horn and announce that K-Girls Plus One is now available on Amazon.
What I am most excited about are my new covers.
While I love, and appreciate, the work that Jonathon Parsons did on my original K-Girls cover when launched back in 2013 (possibly now a collectors item??) , feedback from readers made me re-think the cover and it was decided that, I should take a different approach.
As a result, I did my research and discovered Irish illustrator, Fergal O’Connor
I asked Fergal to come up with a new cover for both, ‘K-Girls’, and ‘K-Girls Plus One’ so that they would be similarly themed and reflect the different plots. Fair play to the young man as he took on reading both to get the ‘jist’ of the story line and then it was easy sailing for him to come up with these gems! I have to say he went above and beyond though when it came to uploading covers for Amazon KDP/Create Space for self publishing as an e-book and paperback. Both versions take a different format and tool and Fergal was super in taking that on too.
Thank you Fergal!
So at last, both books are available as ebooks AND as paperback with their fab new covers. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
It is worth saying here that I don’t plan to do a big media push on this as I have discovered that there are often snags that need to be sorted re Amazon and the product detail pages/promotions etc. I am choosing instead to have a ‘soft’ launch and share the news with my existing fans and followers. Next job then is to get my head around, and set up, some promotions on Amazon. I think it is only fair that there is something in it for the readers that have been so patient to date!
By the way, some followers have asked me why the title ‘K-Girls Plus One’?
Let’s just say it all becomes clear on reading it!
Enjoy and of course, please please leave a book review. They are gold when it comes to getting the book out there on Amazon. Thank you in advance!
