By now, most of you have already heard about the next book I have coming out. For the last couple of months, I’d been hinting about something special coming up that I couldn’t reveal until I got the green light.
On 9/9/16, I made the announcement on my Facebook author page. My next book, Going for Wilder, is a Kindle World novella, and I can’t tell you how excited I am.
For those of you that don’t know, Kindle Worlds are defined as follows by Amazon: Kindle Worlds is a publication platform where you choose a licensed World, read the Content Guidelines for that World, write your story, upload that story, create a cover, and click through a publishing agreement with Amazon Publishing. Once published, every Kindle Worlds story will be featured on Amazon.com, as well as on Kindle devices and apps.
Most authors create their own worlds, and the stories published in that world are often written by them. Some authors have been generous enough to open their worlds to other authors. In doing so, the authors that created that world allow their peers to write stories using their settings and even allow their characters to make an appearance in the guest author’s story. I’m writing in one such world.
Going for Wilder is part of the Sapphire Falls Kindle World which was created by N.Y. Times, USA Today and Amazon best-selling author, Erin Nicholas. It features a group of characters born and raised in the small town of Sapphire Falls, Nebraska. There are a few transplants, but they’re welcomed to the fold with open arms. Erin’s contemporary, erotic romance novels were well written and such a big hit with fans that she thought it might be fun to bring other authors into the mix. I was one of the lucky authors she asked to participate.
I can’t tell you how honored I am. When Erin first reached out to me, I was so excited by the invitation I scared my husband with the loud squeal I let out. Even though I didn’t hesitate to say yes, I will admit that I have some reservations. I consider myself a decent writer, but I don’t know that I’m in Erin’s league. There’s a reason she has such a loyal and large fan base. Not only am I afraid of letting her down, but I fear disappointing her fans.
Despite my reservations, I’m going for it. I’m throwing my hat in the ring with a group of immensely talented authors. On October 18, 2016, my Sapphire Falls Kindle World novella, Going for Wilder, will appear alongside everyone else’s, and I can’t wait.
By the way, if you haven’t read an Erin Nicholas novel, and you like your contemporary romance with a lot of heat, then you don’t know what you're missing. You need to start reading Erin’s books today.
