Okay okay…I realize you have to sell a lot more than 3 million books to be a favorite…
A literary genre consists of books which fall within a certain central theme such as romance, mystery or crime, among others. According to the Romance Writers of America, romance fiction may be further classified into seven various sub-genres depending on setting and plot elements.
“I wanted to make selecting a book from the millions out there to tuck into your beach bag this summer less expensive and easier,” Kathy Clark said. “I have compiled and released nine different Romance Collections that also have similar attributes beyond genre and sub-genre.” These include:
- They’re all part of her romance novel back list of 21 books originally published globally by major publishers. Their paperback sales exceeded 3.25 million copies originally and reader feedback over the past twelve months has confirmed they are still very popular today. She has re-edited and updated them to make them current and relevant.
- The books within each collection are all full length, unabridged romance novels and have been grouped together under common themes.
- Individually they fit the definition of a contemporary-single title romance. She has since broken the genre barrier by creating two new series, that, while still containing romance, are not in the romance genre. One is an adult suspense series that takes place in Denver and the other is a young adult / teen time travel mystery series where the lead characters have the sand from Fort Myers Beach between their toes until it is dropped into some time period in the last hundred years.
- Within each collection you will find books that were recognized as a New York Times Best Seller, or USA Today Recommended, or received a book of the year award. All were translated into multiple languages and sold around the world.
- The collections of two or three books is bargain priced as compared to the cost for the books if bought individually.
The Romance Collections are being released exclusively on Amazon.com during the first week of June 3rd through June 7th. “I have written a personal introduction for each collection about why the books were grouped together and a little background on each. I am happy to present this to you in early June because it’s the perfect time to give you a great deal on some sexy love stories that will make you laugh and cry while making your summer reading a little less expensive,” Kathy concluded.
“The easiest way to explore my Romance Collections is to go to my website and read about each one to see if there is something a reader might spark to. Clicking on the Icon will take you to Amazon where you can also read the blurb on each Collection and each book in detail. Have a great summer. I hope you share it with one of my favorite characters.”
Here’s a quick rundown on each of the Romance Collections.
Romantic Comedy is a collection of two of my books that are sweet, romantic and sexy with a healthy dose of humor mixed in. Tempting Fate is about a woman who tries to make her dreams come true in a creative way. Most of A Private Affair takes place in the magical kingdom of Disney World which is one of my favorite places to visit and pretend to be a kid again. I hope these books will make you laugh and make your day a little brighter.
Unexpected Circumstances is a collection of two of my books that are sexy romances, but with surprise twists. Stroke of Midnight is a modern-day Cinderella story that is loosely based on a real-life event when a waitress inherited a huge estate from a kind stranger. Cold Feet, Warm Heart is a story of two people who are looking for love in a most unusual place, Antarctica. Both have a touch of modern-day fairy tale with sensual love stories about lonely people who have not given up on the chance of true love. Meticulous research was done on both books, which I feel makes them more fun to write and more informative and interesting to read. I love both of the heroines because they are strong women who took control of their lives in creative ways. Fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride!
This one I’ve titled Best of the West because the two novels take place in the modern-day Wild West states of Colorado and Montana. Goodbye Desperado and Cody’s Last Stand were two of my favorites, partly because they both have lots of horses, but mostly because the two heroes are super-sexy macho studs. For those of you who love sensual, but emotional love stories, I think you’ll enjoy spending some time with Matt Montana and John Cody.
These three novels are about several men and women who served in different branches of the military and how that experience affected the rest of their lives. They were set against the Vietnam era but could apply to any time our soldiers were involved in a conflict thousands of miles from home and family. These stories will make you laugh and cry and understand the depths of wounds a war can cause. I truly love these people and their stories and hope you will, too.
Single Dads consists of two of my all-time favorite novels. These are both romantic comedies because any time you have a child in the mix, things seem to quickly get out of control.
The three boys in Count Your Blessings are actually based on my own three sons, Greg, Adam and Scott. It was a lot of fun to write their characters.
Nashville Nights, Texas Days share characters that cross over from book to book and also the fact that they are all set, at least part of the time in Texas.
Another Sunny Day and Golden Days are about the Dayton twins, one of whom is a successful country singer and the other who just wants to live a normal happily-ever-after life, out of the shadow of her famous.
Born to be Wild is about a young woman who has devoted her life to save and rehabilitate wild animals before setting them free. Her path intersects with the Daytons. I love stories about twins, animals and singers, so I combined them all into a fun, sexy, emotional series of novels that have plenty of laughs, some tears, a little heartbreak and a lot of love. Spend some time with these characters and you’ll be wishing you could meet someone wonderful like Tyler, Dillon or Garrett. If you like the TV series Nashville, you’ll love this collection.
Pregnant and Alone consists of two of my all-time best-selling novels. In both books, the heroines find out they are pregnant. Neither are married, but both are delighted at the prospect of becoming mothers. Their circumstances are very different, but each is faced with the complications of adding the father back into their lives. Caution: these books are emotionally charged. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry along with Lauren and Jessica. They will touch your heart forever.
Romantic Suspense is a collection of two of my books that are mostly sexy romances, but also have surprises and suspense.
Starting Over was my all-time best seller when it was first printed. It was loosely based on a real-life event that I, of course, tweaked to make it sweet and romantic, but with a surprise twist.
Sight Unseen has strong elements of the paranormal mixed with a light mystery and lots of sexy romance. It is based at the beautiful haunted Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado and is part of the Rocky Mountain Magic series that I wrote with two of my best friends, Emma Merritt and Julie Kistler. We even got to stay in the infamous room 418, but were disappointed (sort of) that we didn’t actually bump into any ghosts.
After getting a taste of suspense, I have written After Midnight, my first true suspense . . . heavier and darker but still with a strong, hot romance that is also available on Amazon. I think everyone will agree that life is better with a little mystery and a lot of romance! When the first three Denver After Dark books are published they will be put into a collection.
. Go For Your Dreams is a collection of three of my books that are sexy romances about women who achieved very unusual dreams. Risky Business is the story of a woman trying to hang on to her inheritance. No Satisfaction is every woman’s dream about meeting that sexy rock star you were so in love with as a teenager. But now they’re all grown up. Starry Nights is based on the civilian-in-space program during the early days of the space shuttle flights. All three have a touch of modern-day fairy tale with sensual love stories backed by meticulous research. I lived my own fantasies while writing these books and hope you will get lost in dreams of your own while reading them.
