If you happen to be the type who watches my Twitter—and come on, why wouldn’t you be?—then you may have noticed a trend when it came to the sorts of questions I was asking. If you also happen to be the type who can put patterns together—and come on, of course you are!—then you won’t be surprised by what’s coming next.
Because what’s coming next is a brand new me.Introducing Rin Daniels
She’s a lot of sassy and a little sweet, with a habit of writing sexy books! Best part? She’s totally me.
I’m officially launching my brand new self-publishing venture, featuring New Adult and contemporary romance already called “criminally sexy” by a few early readers. Interested to see more? Wander on by Rin’s website—I mean my website!—and see if anything catches your eye.
The first book, Can’t Buy Me Love, will launch in October of 2014!Can’t Buy Me Love
Forget the fact that Kat Harris comes from a family of con artists. Never mind that she tried to scam billionaire Adam Laramie once already—and failed. This time, she’s going legit. It may cost her everything, but he might just be worth risking it all.
That’s right, I am tearing right out of the gate with a billionaire hero and the con artist that got caught trying to scam him. In Sulla Valley, second chances come with strings and love is definitely on the line.
If overcoming the odds, persevering on dreams, and unabashedly steamy intimacy between the sheets—and elsewhere—is your jam, then I think you’re going to love these stories. Swing by and give them a chance!Bloggers and Reviewers
Does this look like a fun read for you? Are you looking for some New Adult romance to review? I’d love it if you’d like to try it!
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the request and a link to your review site. Be sure to include your preferred file format—digital only—and she (I mean I) will be super deliriously happy to send you the book for a fair and honest review.
If you would like to be subscribed to a newsletter specifically for you which will announce when a new Rin Daniels ARC is available for early review, let me know! I’ll send you the link. Thank you so much!Delicious Readers
If you like what you see, and want to be informed when a Rin Daniels book releases, but aren’t sure how to keep track of when Can’t Buy Me Love is supposed to come out, I have the solution for you! Just put your email into this box right here—this very newsletter box!—and I will send you an update with the newest Rin Daniels release.
If you don’t like newsletters, that’s okay—you can stalk the Rin Daniels twitter at @rindaniels or Like her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/rindanielswrites. I’ll be announcing book releases (but no spam!) there, too.Pre-Orders
Right now, there is no pre-order option, but I am investigating these as we speak. It may not be something I include immediately, but if you have strong opinions about a pre-order, feel free to let me know!DRM-Free?
For those of you who prefer DRM free, you’ll have two options at launch. You can order from Smashwords, or you can order directly from me at the Rin Daniels website. There will be buy links and a safe and secure checkout option with no middle-man. I love DRM-free, and I’m super excited to be offering this to you!
For now, the newsletter is probably the best way to get a heads up on when the book officially launches—and I’ll include links to all the usual retailers when it does. I do all the hard work for you, what’s not to love? <3FAQsA different name?
Totally a different name. Frankly, the voice for the Daniels books is so completely different—not to mention you’ll get some bona fide Happily Ever Afters over there!—that I didn’t want to accidentally mislead dedicated readers. If you like dark and twisty, I’m your jam. If you crave a sexy, fast read wherein love conquers all, Rin’s your girl.Why self-pub?
Several reasons, but chief among them was the fact that I could be master of my own timeline. For that reason, I can release a few self-pub books in quicker succession than I could if relied on the traditional publishing machine for all of it. I also wanted to gain some experience hybridizing, to see how all the sides of the industry work.
It’s definitely been a lot to learn, and I’ve enjoyed it!Will you continue with this name or is this a one-off?
Definitely not a one-off. I intend to release three books in fairly quick succession to launch the whole project. You can look forward to the first three books in the Right Side of Wrong series to release as follows:
- Can’t Buy Me Love, October 2014
- Don’t Let Me Go, December 2014
- Won’t Give You Up, February 2015
And I am so beyond excited to be doing this!Is this the same newsletter I’m already signed up for here?
No, different one completely. The Karina Cooper newsletter—which will see a little more use!—will be for, well, Karina Cooper books. The one over at Rin’s place is just for Rin. See? Separation of church and state!
Erm. Maybe you shouldn’t ask me which is which…This is great, but I’m not so into New Adult or contemporary romance…
That is totally cool. It’s part of the reason I made the name different! I won’t fill the Karina Cooper blog with too much Rin Daniels evangelism—I’ll be saving that for her newsletter and whatnot—and vice-versa with Rin’s stuff.Is this a secret? Can I talk about it?
No. Yes. In that order. Feel free! The name isn’t to disguise that I wrote it—Karina to Rin isn’t too much of a stretch, after all—but to ensure that people who are used to one style or the other don’t pick up one of my other books and completely lose their minds.
Trust me—my Cooper stuff is dark, my Daniels stuff is not. It can be a total mindjob to anyone not expecting it, right?Can I call you Rin even when you’re you?
Leave them here or email direct. I’ll be happy to answer!
