Now Available for a Limited Time! Somewhere Out There, a Short Story Anthology for Charity

More than 150 authors have teamed up to raise money that will sorely be needed by those families that are suffering under the current administration’s “zero tolerance” policies at our southern border, me included. My story features some familiar characters, including Abeni and Eren from Phoenix Burned.

Somewhere Out There Cover

K.I.N.D and Innovative Law Lab will receive all proceeds, to help immigrants with the legal cases that lie ahead of them as they fight to reunite their families. Immigration law is complex to navigate, even moreso as very few immigrants are able to have lawyers represent them, which drastically raises their odds of success in court- though the odds are still stacked against them.

Politics are difficult and contentious right now, and as Katie sees it, we all have to use all of our talents to try to protect our fellow humans from harm. Katie is proud to be a part of Somewhere Out There. Human rights are more important than ever, and Katie is committed to ensuring that the American Dream- give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses- remains available to all refugees in need, regardless of financial ability or country of origin.

Somewhere Out There is available from Amazon, B&N, Kobo, iTunes.

Cover Reveal: Fire & Fury

Hey, all!

Those of you who follow my facebook know that it’s been a doozy of a year, with new medical diagnoses, and ample chaos to go around. But amidst all that, I got to participate in a super cool project I’m thrilled to unveil…. the Lick of Fire series. Basically, Lick of Fire is a multi-author paranormal romance series with twelve contributing authors, each writing three books. We’re releasing weekly. Our first author, Kim Faulks just released her first book, Hell is a Harem this week. More on Lick of Fire through the banner. Otherwise, keep scrolling to learn more about Fire & Fury.

Coming April 17th, I have my own first entry, Fire & Fury.

Fire & Fury is the first part of a three part serial, Phoenix Burned. The second installment, Scorched Earth, will hit your kindles May 8th, and the third installment, Ashes to Ashes, will be out July 31st. Those of you who read Chameleon may remember Reza’s twin Eren. Well, it’s time Eren got a story of his own. Thus far, Eren’s been largely overshadowed by his twin- and with good reason. He’s got some shit to work through- and has been avoiding it for centuries. The reappearance of an old love’s gonna force him to come clean with himself about exactly why he’s been stuck punishing himself for so long- and exactly how he can move forward.

Without further ado…. check out the cover for Fire & Fury!

The Inkubus series is getting shiny new covers!

Sickness is a funny thing. Sometimes one task will be all but impossible, and you’ll have to shift to do something else. And even tasks that are both “creative” pull different things from the brain. Case in point, I can’t write while I have a migraine… but I can handle Photoshop. Go figure.

I tell you this because part and parcel with the pretty updated formatting I’ve been working on are pretty new covers. You can’t stare at the same piece of art for years without periodically getting the urge to try something different.

So that’s how the Inkubus series ended up with a whole new series of covers. If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen me sharing these already. But just in case…. taadaaaa!

Inky NYTTESTSMALL

I’ll be back soon with the covers for Reaper, and Chameleon, and maybe I’ll even show off a few cards from the de Long tarot. I’m still moving slowly from August’s surgery, and am still pretty sick, so you’ve got some time to catch up on your TBR list while you wait for new books from me.  And with so many awesome new books coming soon- (Any Lili st. Germain fans waiting for Gun Shy?) that list’ll be full again soon enough.

Next up, the new Reaper cover!

What’s going on with Inkubus?

 

As some of you may have noticed, I’ve slowed down on publishing books in my main Inkubus series. It took me a while to come to terms with why I was dragging my feet, but now that I know, it’s time to ‘fess up.
Those of you who’ve read more than one of my books know how much I love a good setting with vibrant characters whose interactions are fun even outside of their own romances. I prefer to create one world, and play out lots of conflicts within it, as old characters make cameos and throw wrenches into new characters’ plans.
So with each book in the main Inkubus series pushing that central conflict forward, I realized that if I wrapped it up too soon, I was gonna miss out on telling a lot of other stories while it’s raging its hottest. (No pun intended).
And that would have wrecked me.
With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to two new series in the Inkubus universe.
Born In Blood Banner
First up, Born in Blood, which will kick off in June with Siren’s Curse. Born in Blood follows Detective John Camden of Reaper fame, and his tough-talking only-a-friend-no-really leading lady Tia. Secrets, lies, and a curse that could claim their lives.
Siren’s Curse (Born in Blood #1) is available for preorder on Amazon, iBooks, Nook, and Kobo. You can also catch a sneak preview of it in This Is Indie, a free sampler containing sneak peeks at some of the most exciting books to hit your kindle this spring. Get it free from Amazon, iBooks, and Nook.
 Fly Away Angel Bannerr
Next up, coming some time after Siren’s Curse releases, Fly Away Angel, which will begin with Born Sinner. Fly Away Angel is an extremely dark romantic urban fantasy series following an ex-con and her frenemy trying to elude a murderous cabal of demons. Intrigue, repentance, and an answer to the question most of us hope we never have to ask: how long must someone suffer to become the best version of themselves?
Both of these will be multi-book series that are a little more Urban Fantasy-heavy than the main Inkubus series. They follow a single couple- not a new couple each book. You’re gonna get your HEA, and read lots of delicious smutty sex besides, but they’re more of a slow burn.
There’s more to come after that, but those are the two I’m cutting my teeth on. I intend to continue publishing Inkubus books as needed depending how these series move the overall world’s conflict forward. But that’s why you haven’t seen Stalker yet.
I hope you’re as excited as I am by all this. If not, I hope you will be once you’ve checked out an exclusive sneak-peek of Siren’s Curse in This Is Indie, available free from all retailers. Get it free from Amazon, iBooks, and Nook.
Also coming up is the re-release of Alliance, and the release of more Mated in Hell. With my medical stuff getting in the way, I haven’t had time to line it up yet, however that will be coming soon, as well. I haven’t forgotten about Tessa and Liam’s ongoing wary circling.
So that’s the update on all of the magical love stories you can expect to see from my K. de Long penname this summer. I’ve also got Black Roses ongoing, under Tiger Tarantino, and am cooking up a host of new books, as well. Thanks for sticking with me!

Magic & Mayhem’s now up for preorder!

I’m so excited to tell you guys about another awesome set! This one contains my novel, Chameleon, as well as 20 others. It’s a great deal, if you’re trying to do your reading on the cheap. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to discover new writers. Going through the ARCs for these things is one of my favorite ways to find new authors I want to follow along with. I think you guys are gonna love this collection! As a disclaimer, this is fantasy-targeted, so if you’re more interested in steamy alphas, you’ll have more fun with the books in 21 Shades of Night instead.

Title: Magic and Mayhem

Number of Novels: 21

Price: $0.99

Release: August 2, 2016

What makes this boxed set so special?

You might be asking yourself what makes this boxed set so special, and I’m more than happy to tell you. See, there’s nothing like this out there. Usually when you go looking for collections of books, one of two things happens, you either find the same novels you’ve seen everywhere else, most of which you can get for free, or you find a collection chock full of books filled with half-naked alphas and domineering vampires.

Now, both of those things are cool, but that’s not what this collection entails. No, the guys and girls in these novels are way more likely to punch a vampire in the face than make out with one. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with being saved, but sometimes a girl has got to take things into her own hands, like you know, a stake.

You will also find that each novel in this set is actually for sale on one or more venders for far more than the sticker price of this set. This isn’t a set filled with freebies designed to entice you into purchasing something you could find for free. No, this collection of over one million words retails for over fifty dollars, and it’s all your for a buck. If that isn’t a steal, I don’t know what is.

Some of the books within the set have sold thousands of copies by themselves, and almost all of them enjoy several four and five star reviews. Chances are you’ll find at least one of your new favorite series within, and likely more, all for only a buck. That’s a deal that’s hard to beat.

Trust me, with 21 novels from twenty-two New York Times, USA Today, and International bestselling authors, you’re getting more than enough bang for your buck. Just don’t start this set late at night if you value your sleep, because I guarantee you’ll be up WAY past your bedtime! This incredible boxed set is only going to be around at $0.99 for a limited time, so make sure you grab your copy today!

Beyond the Veil launches at $.99, including K. de Long’s Dreamers!

USA! USA! USA!

Yesterday, Happily Ever Alpha made the USA Today bestsellers list, coming in at #117.

Pics or it didn’t happen?

Eat your heart out, lovelies!

K.deLongUSATodayHEAlphaBestseller

This is my first time making the USA Today, and I’m simply thrilled! If you haven’t picked up HEAlpha already, you should swing by Amazon and have a look. I’m extremely proud to have had Inkubus featured in that collection; I’m still working through the other stories, myself, and am having a blast.

There’s gonna be more news coming soon; if you hang out with me elsewhere- Facebook, my mailing list, or ARC list- you have an idea of it already.

Releases are gonna be a little all over the place the next few months, as I’ve got some medical stuff happening that’ll likely interfere with my ability to stay on top of things.  I’ll do my best, though, and I hope to have a few new projects out there, as they’re finished.

2016 is off to a roaring start. I’m still all atwitter over the awesome news, grinning my ass off.

Thank you guys for getting my year off to such a spectacular start!
