Summer Wishes (DESIRE #1.5) by Kailin Gow will put the “D” in “DYSTOPIAN” – Releases on June 30!!

Hi Everyone,

I’m really excited to bring you Summer Wishes (Desire #1.5) as a DESIRE novella this summer.  If you like Dystopian and YA, you will like Summer Wishes. Where DESIRE tells the story of the perfect utopian society in the year 3010 through Kama Johnson’s eyes, Summer Wishes shows you the cracks in this society in one of the most shocking ways.

On JUNE 30th, Summer Wishes will be released

as an exclusive ebook on Amazon Kindle.

Get this, for the first 3 days, Summer Wishes will be FREE on Amazon, so get it and get it quick before you forget.

It’s my GIFT to you for the Summer for being well, you, my loyal readers and friends.  If you have any doubts how much I love my readers, know that I will not charge an ebook above $9.99 no matter how much marketing dollars and how much time and effort I put into writing the book.  At the same time, because there is significant marketing and because I have to pay a staff who help me with graphics, editing, production, etc., these books will be priced a little over .99 which would be reasonable.  Anyways, read… 5 REASONS WHY to find out how I am committed to this.  So…this will be a blog for another day.

New Year – New Series! 2 New Series Releases this Weekend!

Two New Books and Series Releases this Weekend!  First in Kindle and then Paperback.

The Alchemists Academy

 

“What do you learn here…at the Academy?” Wirt asks. “Magic? The responsibility to use your powers responsibly?”

“Uh…something like that,” his roommate Spencer said. “More like how to rule worlds.”

Wirt is used to being shuffled from foster home to foster home, adopting a devil-may-care attitude toward the world along the way.  Now he’s in a school he can’t escape, learning to develop his latent magical abilities, for what use, he doesn’t know…to save his world or to destroy it…

The Alchemists Academy Releases on Kindle this Weekend!

 

Harold the Kung Fu Kid

 

Harold may be the nerdiest kid in high school, but he’s just like every boy in school when it came to Francesca, the hottest girl in school. There’s something about her that draws boys to her like bees to honey. When she suddenly expresses an interest in him, life takes on a bizarre turn. Something strange yet amazing is taking hold of his life, and he must find out what before everything and everyone he cares for is destroyed.

Harold the Kung Fu Kid releases in Kindle this Weekend! Then in Paperback the following week.
