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!

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!

How the Amazon Kindle Fire HD has Brought My Dream of Providing An Awesome and Fun Reading Experience to Life!

Hi Everyone,

For the past 10 years since I’ve been writing books, I’ve been going non-stop, writing books and creating series I haven’t published until digital book technology improved to the point it was a seamlessly enjoyable experience for the author, the publisher, and readers.  Although I published some books throughout my 10 years as print books, the logistics of it have been painstakingly time-consuming, and having ebooks was and is, the way to go for someone like me, who had been in digital marketing before in the corporate world. I understood the digital world, and I knew digital books will be the wave of the future just like music and film.  I saw the writing on the wall back in 2001 when my books were first published, but didn’t have the distribution channel, the devices that would make digital book reading as good as or better than a physical book.

So many of the books I had written was backlogged, waiting to be published. But with over 80 books at the time, it would be tremendously costly to print and publish. So, they sat.

Until the Kindle came along in 2010, and I was able to immediately place a bunch of my books out on Kindle, with my publishing partners, theEDGEbooks.com.

Today I got a chance to experience the new Kindle Fire HD, and it is amazing to see how beautiful everything is on that screen.  The colors, the clarity, and the non-glare.  Plus, my books looked great with the fonts, the formatting, and the way the covers are presented.

If you wanted more information about me as an author or what other books I’ve written, just go to X-ray or other information.  If you have a favorite character you want to keep following throughout the book, you can find out where he or she shows up through X-ray, too.  All this is coming up, along with some amazing features.

If you purchased an audio book of the Steampunk Scarlett series or the Alchemists Academy or the Wolf Fey and more titles coming soon, you can sync the audio book up with the ebook right where you left off.

I’m so excited that finally, there’s someone out there who can provide this amazing reading experience for readers and authors alike.

Amazon.

 

As an author and publisher, I am excited about the possibilities of more innovative features that would take the reading experience to a new high.  Although there are more features I would love to see happen (I’m a futurist what can I say?), this is a pretty darn good start.
