To All My Readers – Thankful for Your Continued Loyalty and Support! PULSE is FREE!

I rarely make my books free because of how much time, labor, and soul I put into my books. Plus, like anyone who works for a living, we all have to somehow make ends meet for the family.  For authors, our books are our means.

But, once in a blue moon, we have to remember to thank everyone who helped us along the way.  Whether you read my books and helped spread the word about them, whether you gifted your friends a copy of the book, whether you attended one of my events, or whether you have reached out to me to just give me an encouraging word; I want to Thank You, readers for your continued loyalty and support.

So I am making PULSE, available for free for you, and for your friends, neighbors, mom’s groups, classmates, etc. on Amazon.com.

I don’t know when it would last, but I hope you and your friends will be able to download a copy on Amazon.com,  read it and let me know at:

kailingowbooks (at) aol (dot) com

Whether of not you’d like to see this book series get made into a film or television series.

Your opinion counts, as we are figuring out which books and series to put on production.

Thank you again, and I hope to be hearing from you soon!

Sincerely,

Kailin

Blood Rights (PULSE #7) Correction on Release Date – June 18, 2012

Hi Everyone, There’s been a bit of confusion about the Release Dates for Blood Rights (PULSE #7). It had been posted as June 16 on my Official Website Kailin Gow Books, but the corrected date is June 18, 2012.

I know it’s been a long wait, but it is a worthwhile one. A lot happens in Blood Rights that will be shocking. Questions will be answered, someone from Octavius’ past will surface, and one of our beloved main characters will die.

Here’s the Description:

The search for the Life’s Blood Carriers have gotten desperate now that two of the Greystones have unwittingly been affected. Right at the start of their journey back to Rutherford, a crisis hits Kalina, Justin, and Max, which causes a rift between the Greystones. Kalina’s strange change is taking over, and now she finds herself in need for answers, fast, before she can commit herself to the one she truly loves.

And we’ll have a Release Party June 19! Stay Tuned for Details.

 

 

 

Taste Of Tuesdays – Valentine’s Day Edition

Happy Valentine’s Day!

To Celebrate Valentine’s Day, this Taste of Tuesdays teasers post will consist of some teasers from the lovely men from some of the more romantic series I have available.  Their words will keep your heart warm, but better yet, their stories and devotion to their women will make you fall head over heels in love with them.

From DESIRE…

“I’ll be here for you, always.” He kissed me again, hard and possessive, as though he feared I’d disappear from his life. “You’ll never want for anything, Kama. Whatever you wish for, I’ll make sure you have it. Whatever it takes to make you happy, I’ll do all I can to make it a reality. You’re my past, present, and future, Kama.” – Liam, DESIRE

From SILVER FROST

“We are meant to be.” He pressed his lips to mine again; against myself, against my worry, I once again succumbed to the power of his kiss. “I know that now. Our love is stronger than magic, stronger than the laws of all Feyland. It will survive this…whatever the future brings.” – Prince Kian, Silver Frost (Frost Series #3)

From BLUE BLOOD (PULSE #4)

“Maybe it’s better this way,” he said. “I can protect you like this, protect Justin, in a way I never could if I were human. I had my chance to experience what it was like to be human for the first time in seven hundred years, even if it was only for a few days. And yes, it’s true, I loved it. But not because I was human, Kalina. But because I was with you, because I could be with you without being afraid of my bloodlust. I want to be with you, human or not. I only want you.” – Jaegar, Blue Blood (PULSE #4)

From HEAVEN AND HELL (Beautiful Beings  #2)

“Moore, I…” The words caught in my throat.  I wasn’t ready to discuss my emotions… not yet.  There was still too much to find out, about him… about Brax.

He stroked my cheek with the back of his fingers.  “Why can’t you just say you love me?”

My tongue poked into my cheek, stubborn in its refusal to speak.

“Do you love me, Lux?” He persisted.

I nodded and was rewarded with a broad grin.

“Don’t gloat,” I warned.

“Never.”  He brushed his lips over mine and then winked. “Now let’s get you down from here before you hurt yourself.”- Moore, Heaven and Hell (Beautiful Beings #2)

 

Happy Dreams and may love live on forever!

If I WAS a Bookseller, Which of My Books Would I Recommend?

Wouldn’t it be great if we had more information available when we make a purchase?  This is especially true when it comes to buying a house or even a car.  If you’re like my husband, who researches everything before a big purchase, then wouldn’t it be great if information will be available right at the point-of-purchase, right at the tip of your fingertips?

Well, buying a book to read for pleasure is not quite the same as buying a house or buying a car.  Although believe it or not, many homebuyers and car buyers do less research on a home or a car than people who buy books.  I’ve been a real estate broker and have sold million dollar homes to people who would just have a sheet of paper, a photo of the house, and an one-time visit.  I’ve bought a house based on an one-time visit, and it turned out to be the house we loved most and lived in the longest in so far.

Now when it comes to buying a book, we rely on booksellers and the information they provide.  Many times, it’s just the blurb and some reviews.  And recommendations.

Who knows a book better than its author?  If authors were booksellers, how would they describe their book?

This is HOW I Would Recommend My Books:

1) The PULSE Series – Want sexy vampires and a girl with the special blood that can turned them human again?  PULSE is a series for age 16 and up that critics have been comparing to Vampire Diaries, Twilight, and any other vampire books to film or television show they have seen.  Because that’s the type of vampire world people are familiar with right now. The difference with PULSE is the vampires’ characters, the history between vampires and Life’s Blood Carriers like Kalina, and the romance.  PULSE now has 9 books out in the series and spin-off, and is read all over the world.  The film for PULSE begins development in 2012.

2) Bitter Frost, Frost Series – Want to enter and escape into a world of magic, fantasy, and romance?  Enter Feyland, the enchanted land of the fey where beautiful and dangerous fey and fey-like creatures live.  Feyland was first introduced to the world through the Fairy Rose Chronicles in 2003, when I began my fiction-writing career writing middle grade to teen books.  Fairy Rose Chronicles was written for age 9 and up, with the later books more for teens.  When Bitter Frost, the first of the Bitter Frost Series was introduced, with some of the characters from the Fairy Rose and a Feyland that takes place 5 years later from the Fairy Rose Chronicles, Feyland’s War of the Seasons is well underway, and has escalated to the taking of royal prisoners, which led to the Summer King’s banished daughter being brought back to Feyland after having grown up in the human world.  Bitter Frost is Breena Malloy’s story and how she navigated the dangerous political world of the Fey to become one of the most legendary leaders of Feyland.  The Frost Series has been contracted to become a multimillion dollar MMO Game. Release of the game is scheduled for 2013 or 2014.  Currently, there are over 14,000 fans and growing for the Frost Series as buzz about this under-the-radar book franchise is gaining more attention.

3) Desire – Escape into a perfect world where everyone’s life is planned out for them.  DESIRE is a dystopian fantasy romance that has a bit of paranormal. It melds genres and people are calling the DESIRE series “Original” and “Literary Genius”.  There is an incredible romantic triangle in DESIRE between Kama, her best friend and long-time boyfriend Liam, and a sexy stranger who knew more about Kama than she did named Torrid. There are already 3 books out in the DESIRE Series with another, Passion, set for release in 2012.

4) Fire Wars – Fire Wars is Greek and Roman Mythology in a Dystopian world.  The world takes place hundreds, perhaps thousands of years in the future when the land has eroded into islands.  Mackenzy Evers is a girl who has moved from place to place with her single mother, who has steadily climbed the career ladder as an Events Director at luxury hotels.  The latest place they move to is Aeros Island, which has more lush vegetation and natural beauty than anywhere else on Earth.  There Mac meets Chance Cutter, son of her mother’s boss, the wealthy Antonio Cutter of Cutter Imperial Hotels. He’s mysterious, sexy, and wants nothing to do with Mac, except for the intense attraction they feel whenever they cross paths.  Then there’s Varun Cutter, the down-to-earth cousin of Chance, who lives and works at the hotel, too.  Both of them have connections to Mac stronger than she can ever imagined, and as she finds out more about who she is, and what she is, she learns that her role in Earth’s future is critical.  The Fire Wars had its world premiere at the Orange Country Children’s Book Festival this year!

Here’s where you can watch the Trailer

And of course, I would recommend the following book series as well:  Beautiful Beings, FADE, Steampunk Scarlett, Stoker Sisters, Phantom Diaries, Harold the Kung Fu Kid, Queen B Superheroine, The Wordwick Games, and Wicked Woods.
