Leeds Author Event 2019

BIG NEWS!

I will be back in Leeds next year – SATURDAY, MARCH 2nd – signing books and generally being bookish and all that.

Get your tickets…. click here

I know it may seem like ages away, but it’s never too early to pre-order books. Check out what I’ve got on offer, although there will be many more titles added to this list before next year… pre-order books for Leeds

There’s more than a slim chance I will be putting together another charity anthology for what promises to be, once again, a fabulous Hourglass Event. Put it in your diaries!

No More Editing . . .

books-bookstore-book-reading-159711.jpeg

As of April 2018, SML PUBLISHING SERVICES will be no more.

This has and it hasn’t been a difficult decision. Difficult because I won’t be working with my clients anymore, not difficult because WRITING is my one true passion and the direction I’m now going in is the one I’ve been working towards for a long time now.

I’m now in a position where I can focus solely on my own work and marketing it to readers. One thing I’ve had to put on the backburner all these years is marketing, because I simply don’t have time.

Any editing projects I’m already committed to will be honoured, but any new queries I receive from now on will be met with “sorry, I’m not editing anymore”. Neither will I be typesetting or formatting or any of that.

Saying that, I will still be available via email if current clients/fellow authors want to query me for advice.

But that’s it folks!

Writing is my game now, my whole game!

Watch out, because there are so many new titles to come!

Last Day in Kindle Unlimited . . .

nightlongfull

The Nightlong Series has been picked up by a publisher and will soon be going wide, meaning this series will be leaving Amazon’s exclusive subscription programme, Kindle Unlimited. Today is your last chance to get the full series for #FREE if you’re a KU subscriber. I’ve even put The Contract up for #FREE for everyone else who doesn’t have KU.

There are exciting times ahead and lots more books to come!

Read The Contract for free whether you’re a KU member or not!

Enjoy,

Lots of “blind date with a book” packages have gone out to readers this week and I’m so pleased they’re already getting stuck in, so to speak!

The above image shows the packages I have left: prices include P&P within the UK (as a special offer) because I need to clear out my office! Please contact me via FB message or through my contact form or via email sarahm.lynch@yahoo.co.uk if you’d like to purchase a book or two. Payment can be made via Paypal.

You’ll see on my website that I have an area for readers to buy signed books – you can order anything you like from there, but you won’t get as good a deal as you will ordering the Blind Date books! Readers familiar with my work will be able to work out which package contains what.

Leeds Book Signing

I was signing books last weekend and I was lucky to be doing so! Lots of other authors and lots of readers, too simply couldn’t make the event due to snow! How annoying when spring seems to have swept its way in this week (at least for us). Anyhow we made the most of the day and really enjoyed ourselves (see my Instagram for pics).

If you didn’t make the event, you can order signed books from me anytime. I sell them year-round from this website and all you need to do is visit this page: https://sarahmichellelynch.com/events/

Alternatively you can message me on FB any time or email me with your request for signed books, using: smlpublishinguk@gmail.com. I take payment through Paypal, but you don’t even need a Paypal account. You can pay a Paypal invoice using any debit/credit card.

Poems To My Younger Self

POEMS REVS

Our poetry book, raising money for Make A Wish, did splendidly last weekend and even reached #1 in new poetry releases on the Amazon US charts. If you’d like to specifically order a copy of the poetry books, please fill out this form.

I very much doubt I will be making it to another signing this year as I am very busy writing/editing and planning a house move, but fingers crossed I will be attending a few signings next year.

There are lots of exciting things in the pipeline so please keep your eyes peeled!

Love, Sarah x

NEW RELEASE: Poems to My Younger Self

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

So, it was summer 2017 . . . and I had this random idea pop into my head, suggesting I put together a poetry collection to raise money for charity. (Eventually I would decide our charity would be MAKE A WISH, as the Leeds Author Event is raising money for this charity.)

In September I started gathering poems to go in the book. Now, 28 authors later and we’re finally here . . . PUBLICATION.

POEMS REVS

You can read poems by some of your favourite authors including Anna-Maria Athanasiou, KA Hobbs, Claire C Riley, Audrina Lane, Lisa Hobman, ES Carter, Charlotte Hart, Andie M. Long, Eleanor Lloyd-Jones and many more. Some of our authors are published for the first time through this publication and are very excited and nervous to discover how it is received.

However, I am so happy with how this book has been received so far. In fact, I am thrilled. From small acorns and all that.

You can help support our fundraising efforts by one-clicking “Poems to My Younger Self” on Amazon.

OR, I will be selling this book in person at the Leeds Author Event on March 3rd, 2018 and you can pre-order your copy here (for pick up in Leeds only): CLICK HERE

I have no doubt this will be a roaring success and it’s been wonderful to organise something like this again, with such a supportive bunch of people!

Thanks all,

Sarah xxx

BLURB . . .

Laura is a bestselling crime novelist, but she hasn’t written anything new in years and her frustrations are making her rethink everything—including her marriage.

She isn’t getting what she wants from her husband Tom, so she decides to create her very own fantasy man—a perfect sexual partner, but also someone she can confide in.

Perhaps switching genre may help her combat writer’s block, but during the writing process, it becomes difficult to separate fact from fiction and the secrets plaguing her marriage threaten to bring her whole life crashing down around her.

On the page her fantasies run wild, but how can she apply them to real life? Or in real life, do her fantasies make her a bad person for wanting MORE?

In this plot-driven, challenging romance, Laura finds herself questioning whether the problem lies with her.

Is she asking too much?

The truth is, nothing is what it seems in this story.

Nothing.

Can she be redeemed? Is she truly evil…?

HIS DEADLY ROSEnewebookThe antagonist of the SUB ROSA SERIES comes under scrutiny in my latest release, His Deadly Rose, Sub Rosa #6, OUT TODAY!

This is the sixth book in the series and really should be read after books 1-3, Unbind, Unfurl and Unleash. It is my opinion (I’m the author, so I would say this), that you should read all seven books in sequence, because I have designed them to be read this way – and they transition into one another. However, understanding His Deadly Rose is not directly dependent on you having read Dom Diaries (#4) and Worth It (#5).

You won’t understand the impact of THE ROSE if you haven’t read Unbind, Unfurl and Unleash before His Deadly Rose, so MAKE SURE YOU READ Sub Rosa 1-3 before this one!

pablo (33).png

It’s important before going into His Deadly Rose that you take time to consider why I called this series Sub Rosa. Historically Sub Rosa means something of the utmost secrecy. In Latin, it literally means, beneath the rose. The rose, aka Claudia Matthews, is a confounding character, one many readers have asked me about. Nobody seems sure of her. She twists things with her words. One minute she has your sympathy, or your attention, and in the next breath she has you hating her and condemning her to hell for all eternity.

Well, this novel – His Deadly Rose – has been designed to change your mind about a lot. Her story is now told from the perspective of someone who loved her. Someone young. Impressionable. But someone not jaded, not stupid – a reliable narrator.

Is there a reason Claudia seems to make sense one minute, and then the next – she has you convinced she’s full of nonsense once more?

There might just be…epilogue ebook

But the final piece of the puzzle will not be revealed until Sub Rosa #7, EPILOGUE, which releases on Valentine’s Day.

Both novels are not to be missed. Trust me!

Please… enjoy.

***

Every single author has brought it for this project and I’d just like to say thank-you to them all for really getting what I wanted from them. I’m so happy with this book, and I think you will be, too.

ALL PROCEEDS of this book are going to MAKE A WISH, a charity granting wishes to terminally ill children. One of our own writers, KA Hobbs told me her sister was granted a wish before she died and it meant everything to her sister and their family. This is such a special charity and we hope this book provides hope but also a generous donation, too.

If you would like a review copy, please visit THIS FORM and fill out your details. Review copies will be sent in the form of a Kindle book – but please note – “Poems To My Younger Self” will only go on sale in paperback. Poetry needs to be read on the page. It’s so much more powerful that way.

The paperback will be available to buy from Amazon on February 20th but I’ll also be selling this in person at the Leeds Author Event on March 3rd, 2018. Many of the contributing authors will be in attendance that day. I’ll let you know how you can pre-order your copies for this event beforehand.

More details are to come… and I’ll be posting snippets of everyone’s poems on my Instagram account in the run-up to publication, so do not miss out!

What Does 2018 Have in Store?

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break with their families and loved ones! At Lynch Towers we ate, drank, had many lie-ins, and now feel refreshed, ready to take on another year.

You may have noticed that at the end of last year, many of my books underwent a complete rebranding. This coincided with me adding lots of my back catalogue to new vendors, including the iBookstore/iTunes, B&N, Kobo and many others.

I’ve updated the library section of my website with a drop-down menu detailing all my books, including how I’ve incorporated old editions into new ones. You can see which books have already been moved over to expanded distribution, including the Sub Rosa Series, Angel Avenue, Beyond Angel Avenue, The Chambermaid Series and The UNITY Series.

unbind freebie

In fact, Unbind (Sub Rosa #1) is now PERMA FREE and can be downloaded as such from Amazon and also from other vendors too.

All of the Sub Rosa novels are gradually being phased over into expanded distribution.

All buy links can be found in the aforementioned drop down menus of the library on this site.

HIS DEADLY ROSE (Sub Rosa #6) and EPILOGUE (Sub Rosa #7) release on January 16th and February 14th respectively.

My Review Team

I now have a section on my site where, if you are a reviewer, you can sign up to receive review copies from me in exchange for honest reviews. Check out the details here.

Poems To My Younger Self Project

I’m currently completing work on this brand-new charity anthology, featuring 28 authors including myself. More details are soon to follow…
