5-Star Pre-Release Reviews for Becoming Kerry

Becoming-Kerry-Lynn-KellingWOW! This week, 2 incredible 5-Star reviews have come out for Becoming Kerry from Gay Book Reviews. You can read the full-write up for both at the links below. I’m so very grateful for the feedback and glad to see Kerry being so well-received!

~* Ana’s 5-Star Review for Becoming Kerry *~

“It was an amazing book, maybe the best I’ve read so far this year. It has a beautiful message of acceptance.”

~* Tosha’s 5-Star Review for Becoming Kerry *~

“This was a great read. I dare say an inspiring read. The things that both of these men go through is heartbreaking but at the same time they use that heartbreak to help them each create something better, more pure… I truly believe that Lynn Kelling did an excellent job on this book and others will believe the same.”

Writing and editing this story has been at times such a monumental uphill-climb (for real, I lost count of the rounds of re-writes); it really makes me feel like all of the blood, sweat, and tears that went into making this book happen were well worth it to see it so appreciated. My heartfelt thanks go out to both reviewers for being open to Kerry’s story and sharing their thoughts on the book!

Cover Reveal Day for Becoming Kerry

BecomingKerry_RevealPDF-194x300Today the cover of Becoming Kerry was revealed at Sinfully Gay Romance Book Reviews! I love how the artwork captures the different stages or facets of Kerry’s growth throughout the book, showing in dramatic fashion some of the transformation underway as Kerry embraces his identity as genderqueer.

Please stop by to check it out and pre-order a copy!

The blog tour for Becoming Kerry is scheduled for August 6–11, and I’ve already got an interview with Kerry ready to go, as well as a dual interview with Ewyn and his mom, Erin. There will be even more lined up, including a deleted scene, so stay posted!

Arctic Restitution just got an amazing *5 STAR REVIEW* from Hearts on Fire Reviews!

“I absolutely loved that logic and reason won over stupidity – thank you for that! …I loved the growth that I saw in both men throughout this book. I loved their sexy time together. I loved the wonderful family and community that stood with them. I loved this entire series!” – Wendy, Hearts on Fire Reviews

Huge thanks to them and Wendy for the feedback on the book!

Now for some real talk… My family has been dealing with stalking issues lately (abusive extended family members and their swarms of enablers), which has led me to stop sharing personal details on my personal Facebook account and just generally keeping things closer to the vest. My kids just want to be left alone by these people and have had some anxiety about all of it, which is really hard to deal with as a parent, mostly because it becomes so difficult to just enjoy normal life events when creeps keep dropping by to try and make it all about them. Luckily, we’ve been laughing it off as much as possible and have been working with officials and the law to protect ourselves. In the meantime, we’re really looking forward to getting some beach vacation time, enjoy the sand, sun and hot tub, and do some serious board game playing.

I’m doing my best to stay on top of everything, but please bear with me in the next weeks when it comes to responding to messages. There’s a lot going on!

For the curious, I’ve recently submitted my MMM BDSM Romantic Drama, Life From Nothing, to Forbidden Fiction and have my fingers crossed that they’ll like it enjoy to give me a publishing contract for it. My current work in progress on the writing front is a prequel to Bare featuring Rune, Oliver and Jackson as the main characters. It’s been incredible to face the challenge of a deaf lead whose friends and partners are collectively not the greatest with sign language, but Rune has been rising above it all with an incredible sense of humor, raw and ferocious sexuality, fearlessness, and a calm but unwavering need for vengeance against the Neo-Nazis who hurt him and other vulnerable people in his community. I’ve got over 50,000 words written so far!

Wishing everyone a happy summer and really looking forward to sharing some good stuff with you very soon.

“I know it sounds hard to believe that a story about a 19-year-old boy having to spend two years in prison could be beautiful, but it is.”

~* 5 HEARTS for Arctic Restitution from Kimmers’ Erotic Book Banter *~

ArcticRestitution_CvrPDFfix2“Arctic Restitution and the entire Arctic Absolution series are so beautifully written, Lynn Kelling’s characters and their relationships are always my favorite part of her stories… The story of Dixon and Jaye will stay with me for years to come.”

LATEST REVIEW ROUNDUP

~* 4.5 STARS FROM SINFULLY GAY ROMANCE BOOK REVIEWS *~

“I love this series… This final installment is not as dark as what came before. The feel of the story has changed with Jaye’s mindset and is more hopeful and peaceful even with both still struggling to contain their demons…Lynn Kelling’s writing never disappoints.” – Debra, Sinfully Gay Romance Book Reviews

~* 4.5 STARS FROM THE BLOGGER GIRLS *~

“This is one intense and unique series that has kept me on the edge of my seat from the middle (Arctic Absolution) to the beginning (Caged Jaye) and now the end (Arctic Restitution)… Ms. Kelling has finished this story off with the same gusto as the first two and they will be in my mind for a long time to come. I highly recommend you read these.” – JustJen, The Blogger Girls

1st Pre-Release Review for Arctic Restitution

ArcticRestitution_CvrPDF*~ 5 STARS FOR ARCTIC RESTITUTION~*

The very 1st Pre-Release Review for Arctic Restitution has been posted by On Top Down Under Book Reviews & it’s full of delicious graphics & thoughts on all aspects of the book. Take a look!

“Arctic Restitution is compelling, dark, angsty, sexy, romantic, hopeful, and it brought my guys, yes, they’re mine, closure. I feel like if there isn’t another word written on Jaye and Dixon as primary characters that’s okay. I’m at peace with their amazing growth and where they’re at. I can’t – daren’t – ask for anything more. Crank up some angst-driven Halsey and/or Ali Barter while you read this book. Arctic Restitution is heart pounding and emotional reading.”

Many thanks to On Top Down Under Reviews for the awesome feedback!

The blog tour kicks off soon – May 22–26. The book is released May 23.
