As some of you may remember, last week I did a big giveaway for my birthday!

Using Rafflecopter, those who shared about the contest, liked my page, followed me on twitter or answered questions got points, and Rafflecopter chose the winners! So, here is the moment you have all been waiting for:


Congratulations EMMY BLUE for winning the Grand Prize: Signed copies of Forbidden Mind, Forbidden Fire, Lexie World and Bella World plus bookmarks from each series and a $10 gift certificate to Amazon

Congratulations to the 5 Runner Ups: Ranee Dillon, Georgia Summers, Sharon Stogner, Mindy Janicke and Brittany Carrigan. You each won a bookmark from each series and your choice of Forbidden Mind, Forbidden Fire, Lexie World or Bella World as an ebook.

The winners have been notified via email. Please reply back with the information requested to receive your award. If I don’t hear from you by next Monday I will choose new winners. You can email me directly at kimberly.kinrade at if you haven’t received my email.

And thank you to ALL OF YOU for making this such a hugely successful giveaway. I hope you were all able to take advantage of the 99cent sale on my books. I’ll be doing more fun giveaways in the future (I’m kind of addicted to Rafflecopter) so follow my site and keep a look out for more titles to come.

Here are some launch dates to pay attention to:

June 26th 2012: Forbidden Life and Maddie WorldThis closes out both the Forbidden Trilogy and the special edition Three Lost Kids Trilogy. So exciting! Parents, kids and educators, check out the Three Lost Kids website for more news about this series, free coloring book pages (coming soon), resources and more! Over there we deal with bullying, caring for the planet, forgiveness and anger, and more!

October 2nd, 2012: The Reluctant Familiar and The Three Lost Kids and the Death of the Sugar Fairy– This starts a new ongoing series (where each book is a standalone but there will be more in the series to come) and starts a new Three Lost Kids series that will also be ongoing.

November 26th, 2012: Blood of the Fallen (co-written with Dmytry Karpov) and The Three Lost Kids and the Christmas Curse — This starts a new trilogy based on two characters from my Forbidden Trilogy and co-written with my soon-to-be-husband, Dmytry Karpov. This trilogy is going to ROCK! It also continues my children’s series with a fun Christmas edition!

Ongoing: Keep an eye out each week for a new installment of The Kiss of Life, my YA urban fantasy romance serial novel that will be published once it’s complete. Get it free here first! (And in the raw!) It was going up on Fridays, but I’m changing that to Wednesdays. Also, I give away a free ebook each week to a random commenter, so don’t forget to leave a comment!
