I am delighted to be hosting YA author Katlyn Duncan on her debut release tour.
Take it away, Katlyn…
Hello everyone! I am so happy to be on Sarah’s blog today!
My topic for today is about the phrase “digital-first”. This is a near and dear topic to me since my publishing company, Carina UK (newest imprint of Harlequin UK), is a digital-first imprint. So what does that mean to you?
- My books will be published within a few months of each other. Skipping the printing process brings my words to you sooner rather than later. It keeps the excitement of the series alive knowing you will get the next installment quickly.
- Affordable pricing. Again without printing costs, the price of the book becomes more affordable for everyone’s budget, which is something important to me. I want my book to be available for everyone and what better place to start then the price?
- On the go! With a click of a button you can have the book in your hands. With the ability to read it on your smart phone or e-reader you can pull it out quickly at a moment’s notice to continue reading whether you are in between classes, waiting at the doctor’s office, at your kid’s soccer game, or on your lunch break. The possibilities are endless!
I have always been on top of new trends when it comes to reading and I am so excited to be a part of an innovative imprint that is moving up with the times.
So what if you don’t have an e-reader? Do you have a smart phone? You can download free reading apps to your phone for free! No smart phone? Do you have a computer? You can download my book to your computer to read it!
Want your book digitally signed? There is a way!
Authorgraph is a website where I can send a digital signature with a swipe of my finger and even personalize a message for you. It sends a pdf and BOOM! There you go. Want your copy of Soul Taken signed? Go here.
Now if you are oh so dying to have Soul Taken in your hands so you can feel and smell the fresh pages…there is a way. Carina UK is digital-first, not digital-only. If there is a strong enough demand for my book to be printed, it will. And you have the power to make that happen. But that is completely up to you. If you want it, tweet and Facebook about it. If you are okay to enjoy the book on your phone, e-reader, or computer that is awesome too!
So even though I won’t see this book on the bookshelves in my favorite bookstores on June 4th, I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the success of Harlequin UK’s newest imprint and to share it with some pretty amazing ladies, like Sarah (whose book is now available digitally too!).

After-life just got a lot more complicated
Maggie is a Soul Collector. It’s her job to transport souls from the Living Realm to the After – but during a mission to find a stolen soul, she ends up stuck in a teen mean girl’s body.
Trapped, Maggie’s soul is catapulted into Ally’s life – and the human world she hasn’t experienced for one hundred years. But, as a descendant of the most powerful beings in the After, Maggie must rescue Ally before the girl’s soul dies…
To survive, Maggie must uncover devastating secrets – because with one soul taken by a terrifying enemy, Maggie’s could be next!
