Thank You

Ice Kissed has been out for almost a week, and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who picked up a copy and/or left a review for making the first week so great. As an author, it’s always a terrifying releasing a new book, because you never know for sure how people will react to it. Will they like it? Will they hate it? Or worse – what if nobody reads it? 

But thanks to fantastic readers like you, you’ve Ice Kissed‘s first week in the world a great one. I’ve gotten so many lovey, excited, and supportive messages from readers (and I’m still replying to them all, so sorry if I haven’t gotten back to you yet), and it makes all the nerves, anxiety, and sleepless nights that accompany the launch of a new book worthwhile. So thank you guys, VERY MUCH.

If you haven’t picked up Ice Kissed yet, check out this post with links for excerpts, trivia, and places to buy: Ice Kissed is Out!

For those of you that have picked up a copy of Ice Kissed – whether it be ebook, paperback, hardcover, audio, or even a library book – you can enter the Ice Kissed in the Wild contest. It’s going on until Friday, so enter while you still can. The Watersong giveaway has ended, and the winners have been contacted via email. I will have more giveaways to come over the course of the summer, though, so keep an eye out on the Giveaways & Contests.

If you have questions at the end of Ice Kissed – as I know some of you do – I’ll be answering spoiler-y questions over at Goodreads all week, about the Kanin Chronicles and the Trylle Trilogy. So if you want to stop by and ask questions, it’ll be fun. Ask: here.

And finally, people have been asking when the final book in the Kanin Chronicles – Crystal Kingdom – will be out and if it’s available for preorder. The answers are: August 4, 2015 (which is only 85 days from today), and yes, it is available for preorder!

Here’s the official synopsis of Crystal Kingdom, and preorder links below.

The one person who can help Bryn Aven is her greatest enemy, the enigmatic Konstantin Black. Konstantin is her only ally against those who have taken over her kingdom and threaten to destroy everything she holds dear. But can she trust him?

As Bryn fights to clear her name, the Kanin rulers’ darkest secrets are coming to light… and now the entire troll world is on the brink of war. Will it tear Bryn from Ridley Dresden, the only guy she’s ever loved? And can she join forces with Finn Holmes and the Trylle kingdom? One thing is certain: an epic battle is underway—and when it’s complete, nothing will ever be the same…
