So about a week ago, we mentioned on Facebook that we had some news to announce and we’re excited to say it’s finally time!
You may be looking at the image above and wondering what a Kennedy Fox Bedtime Read is…and we’re about to tell you! To make a long story short, we’ve decided to merge our Brooke and Lyra brand with our Kennedy Fox brand. When we first decided to release My Week with the Bad Boy, we did it under our Brooke & Lyra names because we planned to make it exclusive to Amazon and Kindle Unlimited and we also knew this book was structured different from our usual Kennedy Fox stories, which is why we kept it separate in the first place. About a week after release, we decided being exclusive wasn’t our thing and pulled it out of Kindle Unlimited, which means MWwtBB is live on all platforms! Kennedy Fox has always had a wide audience, so making the change makes since for us now.
Since releasing this book, we’ve been trying to juggle both brands. That means double social media, double websites and newsletters to stay on top of, double advertising and promoting—basically double everything! This went against our “Work smarter, not harder” business mentality so we decided we needed a change and fast before we burned out.
This brings us to our new Kennedy Fox Bedtime Reads Series!
My Week with the Bad Boy is book #1 and the rest of the series we already had planned will now be released under this series. The Bedtime Reads Series is structured like this: Steamy Reads that can be read in one sitting! So once you tuck your littles in for the night (or your husband 😉), snuggle up in bed with a Kennedy Fox Bedtime Read and finish it in one sitting before you fall asleep! These are full-length standalone novels that are filled with humor, insta-lust, blistering heat, and are faster-paced, but still have everything you love about a Kennedy Fox book!
This was a hard decision for us to make, but we know it’s the right one. We love connecting with our readers as Kennedy Fox, Brooke, or Lyra, but branding-wise, we needed to stay consistent and make it manageable at the same time. We hope you understand this change and brace it with us!
A KENNEDY FOX BEDTIME READ, #1
We’ve adjusted the cover just a tad. We’ve put our Kennedy Fox name on it as well as the new series name.
So anytime you see one of our titles with this colored-strip at the bottom with the series name, you’ll know exactly what it is and what to expect: Steamy, fun, quick reads!
Side note: The eBook is currently in transition with the new cover and author name, so if you don’t see an updated version yet, hang tight it’ll be coming!
Never trust a man who answers the front door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.
That should’ve been my first sign.
I write about guys just like him for a living—sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic f*ckboy.
And I want nothing to do with that.
Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges all my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you.
One week is all it took. One week to realize that not everything is as it seems.
One week with the bad boy, and I wanted more.
Any paperbacks with our Brooke & Lyra names on it are now considered exclusive indies! That means they are no longer the most recent edition. So if you already have one, you have a super special one! If you would like a signed paperback of the original cover, you can still order them here thru December 31st. Once we’re out, we won’t be re-ordering them.
We still have some signed paperbacks + swag mini boxes left in our Brooke & Lyra shop! Once they’re gone, they’ll be discontinued. We’ll no longer be offering any swag boxes under the Bedtime Reads Series. You can find them here.
We will be changing the paperback cover on Amazon very soon, so there’s still time to order the original cover on there if you wish to have that one.
We also have the NEW edition up for grabs in our Kennedy Fox shop. You can order signed paperbacks here: kennedyfoxbooks.com/shop. Please allow 1-2 weeks for these to be shipped.
And lastly, in case you didn’t see, we’re having a holiday sale in our Kennedy Fox shop here! 40% off mugs, tumblers, & totes. Use the code: HOLIDAY40. We also have limited quantities of our Kennedy Fox Holiday Box left (A signed paperback + mug/tumbler + cookie), so grab them before they’re all gone! Only 16 left!
Between speaking events, book signings, and our release schedule, 2018 is going to be one busy year! We’re so excited about all of it, too!
If you wish to stay updated on all our future releases, you can check out our release schedule here! We make sure to keep it updated if any changes happen along the way.
