The first Kailin Gow’s Rockin’ the Holidays Indie Readers Bash signing event at the House of Blues Anaheim Downtown Disney was both fun and successful!

Rockin' the Holidays Indie Readers Bash Banner

Several authors sold out of their books, readers had fun, the band sounded great, the models looked better in person than their photos, and the charities – Breast Cancer awareness had a great raffle while an auction for a 8 foot banner signed by all the authors to benefit a local OC battered women’s shelter was auctioned off for a very good amount.

Here are some photos taken from Kailin Gow’s Rockin’ the Holidays Indie Readers Bash’s website (managed by my team). 

So here are some photos from the event:

Just Released!!!!

Giving up her dreams in Paris and returning to New York, Taryn Cummings finds herself immersed in the running of her family’s restaurant and her life as she knew it before her arrangement with celebrity Chef Errol King. As she delve back into her old life, her heart is still in Paris…along with Chef Errol King.

Devour Me (Master Chefs Book 1)

Devour Me (Master Chefs Series) by Kailin Gow

99 cents this week!

“It had super-hot sex AND a fabulous story. THIS is what erotica should always be like! Not only did this book have an amazing plot, but the cast of characters were all easy to get into. All the characters were so well done that I either wanted to hug them or slap them.” – Mama’s Reading Break

Taryn Cummings could not believe she was accepted into the prestigious International Institute of Culinary Arts culinary institute she dreamed of studying at in beautiful Paris, France. It was a far cry from her unglamorous life back home in New York where she helped her mother run their small family-owned restaurant called Sam’s. The International Institute of Culinary Arts churned out the top chefs in the world, including the wildly sexy and eccentric Master Chef Errol King, whose celebrity personality was larger than life.

She wanted excitement in a city of romance and thrills, but arrived to find her apartment barely livable and herself in need of a suitable place to stay. A chance meeting at the Institute brings her face-to-face with her new roommate…the devilishly charming Errol King, who would be guest teaching her class this term.

The attraction is as hot as the fire they cook with, and while Errol King, the notorious bad boy chef with an attitude, can get anyone he wanted into his bed, he wanted this woman more than anything. Something about her sweet innocence and sad eyes reach into his harden heart, but is it enough for him to forget his past?

What an Honor to be on the Front Page of Amazon.com as a Success Story!

I woke up this morning to find me profiled on the front page of Amazon.com.  As their Author Success Story.  Wow.

Kailin Gow Success Story on Front Page of Amazon on 4-30-2013

When I first became an author, I never thought I would be doing this as a living and getting recognized for something I have such a passion for:  writing books

I published my first book in 2001 as a means to help girls and teens to deal with social situations that were hard to talk to someone about by way of fiction.  By some fluke, my fantasty books and books for girls, teens, young adults, and women took off, and found a resonance with readers.

I’ve been fortunate in so many ways to get to this point. It had been a long journey filled with thrills and spills (mostly all good, though) but the revolution of KDP has helped me get there faster.

Here’s the rest of my story from Amazon, which I hope will inspire you to be more than you imagined, too!

Kailin Gow, Success Story on Amazon.com

The Protege is Having an Early Release – March 25!!! Perfect Summer is Now Releasing on April 11!

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I’ve been AWOL.  I’ve been busy with some all-consuming things like moving, and renovating my old home, getting situated into a new one as well as getting office space.

But that doesn’t mean I haven’t forgotten about all of you.  My books will continue to be released, but the dates for the releases have changed.

The Protege is having an Early Release!  March 25!!! 

The Protege (The Protege Series #1) by Kailin Gow

 

This is an Adult Contemporary book for 18+ and up and contains sexual scenes.

To celebrate the early release of The Protege and also to give you a taste of one of the characters – Sebastian Sorensen, I have written a short flash fiction called Seducing Sebastian Sorensen for Kelli Maine’s Dolls & Doms (18+ and over) site about Sebastian, which took place a year before The Protege takes place.

Here’s the story, and you must be 18 and up to enter the site and read the story.

http://dollsanddoms.blogspot.com/2013/03/seducing-sebastian-sorensen.html

The Protege

She was the young promising composer in search of a master to teach her and advise her. Serena Singleton was the beautiful up and coming talent brought to the attention of the eccentric, famous, and wildly wealthy Sebastian Sorenson, one of the foremost and most talented composers in Hollywood and in the Academics field. A chance encounter brings them into an arrangement that turns out beyond their expectations and desire, testing their boundaries.  Who is the student, the protege, and who is the teacher? Nothing is as it seems in this romantic exotic thriller.

Perfect Summer is now releasing on April 11!

9781597480567

This is for New Adult and is told Mainly through Summer’s eyes (If it was from the Donovan Brothers’ this would be Adult)

Two hot brothers, one steady and secured, groomed to take over their family’s billion dollar enterprise. The other, a rising football star whose body is well-known to women of all ages in print and in person. Both in love with the same woman, whom they can’t have – Summer Jones, their sister’s best friend since childhood, and the girl they promised to protect.

She’s never been so lost in her life, following the tragedy that rocked her steady and secured life. Always the perfect girl, the good girl who does everything to take care of everyone else, she’s now the one who’s fallen too far. Not Drew, not Nat, and not even Rachel. She knows she has to choose and make a decision. She knows she has to do the right thing, but as she decides with her mind, her heart rebels. Her desire for both Donovan brothers has grown insatiable and an addiction so much so that lines are blurred and nothing is clear. Just when everything seems bleak and hopeless, comes a revelation so deep, that what seems far from perfect becomes perfect in what turns out to be the Donovan’s most perfect summer.

Change in Release Dates ANNOUNCEMENTS and UPCOMING PLANS – Falling for Summer (Loving Summer: Donovan Brothers) – To Be Released December 15, 2012

Hi Everyone,

In the airlines industry, sometimes a flight gets delayed or a flight gets canceled due to special circumstances.  Well, in the ever changing book world, especially in indie publishing, that can apply, too.

As you know, and the fans/readers who have been following me on Facebook know where I do post things that are personal, I’d had a few family emergencies (father in hospital), and even a personal illness that came about afterwards, and then my editor’s family issues, that pushed writing to the back for a while.  I set out some deadlines earlier for Falling for Summer and for Finding You Finding Me that are tentative, and it looks like if all goes well, the delay for these two books will only be a few weeks.

Another reason for the delay for Falling for Summer is that I am going to provide 2 versions of Falling for Summer, or rather, an excerpt. Falling for Summer because of its POV from the Donovan Brothers can be pretty steamy to the point of being adult, but in keeping with the series being YA-Mature and New Adult, parts of Falling for Summer is being rewritten.

Hope this gives some of you more choices, as I know I have a mixed audience reading my books, and the Loving Summer Series is for age 16 and up.

Falling for Summer will be for age 17 and up and classified as YA-Mature/New Adult still.

 

Finding You Finding Me (You & Me Trilogy) has been moved to December 26, 2012 as well.

 

Due to the same circumstances.  Fortunately, what will release and has already released are the following, and I’m blessed these even got a chance to get released on time!!!

Just Released!  Hope you’ll be able to get a copy of this final book in the Bitter Frost Series!    This conclusion says so much about love and the ups and downs of it in real life. Although Bitter Frost is like a fairy tale, this series deals with real issues told in a way that will hopefully resonate with people going through some of the issues Breena, Kian, Logan, and Rose are going through.

DISCUSSION SHEETS and LEADERSHIP GROUPS and Group/Bookclub Materials for this Series will be available soon!  We are also looking for Women and Teachers who would like to start their own self-esteem/leadership group locally for teens and women, using the Frost Series books.

 

FEVER (FADE #4) is the Final Book in the FADE Series – my dystopian thriller series set in the future.  I’m really excited about this conclusion, and think it says a lot about hope for humanity and faith in love.  Releases DECEMBER 3rd!

 

 

 

 

The NEVER SAY NEVER (Never Knights Series) Music Video with singer AJ Rafael is Here!

So excited to finally bring to you this collaborated effort between AJ and me.

 

Here’s the description of the music video:

This is a music video spoof from AJ Rafael and Kailin Gow honoring the 80’s great musician Robert Palmer and other musicians who helped paved the way for music today. Music is still the vehicle of communication and expression it was back then as it is today. AJ Rafael’s Music Speaks brings awareness of the power of music for Autism awareness, while Kailin Gow’s Never Say Never books shows the power of music to heal, grow, and transcend gender roles.  AJ’s nephew has autism, and Kailin’s daughter was diagnosed as being on the spectrum but has recently been diagnosed as no longer on the spectrum. Enjoy!

View the Robert Palmer Simply Irresistible Video so you can see how gender roles has changed!

These guys in the Never Say Never music videos are so awesome and secure in themselves, they help to bring forth the message to other guys and to women, too, that:

“Real Men Are Secure In Themselves.

They Never Use Force.”

 

This is a message found in the Never Knights Series with Never Say Never being book 1.

What happens when a hot, but strong young woman takes over a band full of hormonal heartthrobs?  – the book series Never Knights is what happens!
