Gull Harbor released on Kindle Select! Kathryn Knight

I'm officially multi-published!  Last evening, while waiting for my son's soccer game to start, I hit refresh on my phone's search for Gull Harbor on Amazon.  I had been told by my publisher to expect it to go live within the week, but thus far only a similarly-titled cookbook showed up in my searches.

This time it came up--what a feeling that is to first see the novel you worked so hard on make it from your computer to an enormous marketplace.  I scrambled to start promoting from my phone while following the soccer game as best I could.

I still can't believe I've had 2 full-length novels release within 6 months.  I don't imagine I'll ever have that happen again, so I'm trying to enjoy the feeling now.  I'm about 7,000 words into a paranormal YA romance right now, so my third novel is a long way from even a completed rough draft.  But I know that since August, I've been very busy promoting Silver Lake and editing Gull Harbor, and that has cut into writing time.  It's tough to balance it all with a part-time job and family and pets, but I'm not complaining--this journey has been rewarding in so many ways, and has resulted in a dream come true.

Silver Lake was not part of the Kindle Select early release, so I'm interested in how this will play out, sales-wise.  If anyone has any tips for me for the next 3 months, I'd love to hear them!  If you'd like to purchase a Kindle version of Gull Harbor, the link is below.  And if you don't have a Kindle but can't wait till June, you can download a FREE Kindle App from Amazon for your laptop.  I have one and it's great.  I've included that link too.  Thanks for stopping by and celebrating with me!

  1. It is difficult to come up with the right words to describe Ms. Knight’s sophomore novel, but the best I can supply is just “Wow!”. With, Gull Harbor, she both increased the Romance and the Paranormal. The book was a page turner through and through. The plot developed quickly and stayed on pace throughout. What I really enjoyed was that she tied up every loose end by the conclusion. (Including a few that I had forgotten about.)
    As in Silver Lake, Ms. Knight fully developed her characters. You got to know them inside and out. Claire, Max and Dan were real people that you would expect to exist in a New England coastal town. I felt that I could almost anticipate their next moves and was pleased to see that most times I was right. What I never expected was the development of the paranormal aspect. Without giving away any of the plotline, I felt that I could really understand what Claire was feeling.
    Don’t get me wrong with saying that the next moves were always predictable. The story took many turns that I did not expect. Many of my early thoughts about the storyline were completely wrong, however I thoroughly enjoyed the way they came to a conclusion.
    In the end, Claire and Max make a great team. I would love to hear more of their story. Do I see a series in the works? Maybe something along the lines of Coulter’s FBI series… instead of Sherlock and Savich, we have Claire and Max?
    All in all, this was a great read. A real pleasure from beginning to end. As I said about her first book, I cannot wait until the next one. Kathryn Knight, You have me hooked and you have a big fan!!!

  2. So glad you enjoyed Gull Harbor Jamie! Thanks so much for the fantastic review.
