Forbidden Mind FREE & Major Event to Raise Books for Charity

October is my favorite month for so many reasons. I love the turning of the season, the colors, the leaves, the haunted houses and corn mazes, and I love all things pumpkin flavored. Also, I became a mother for the first time on Halloween 10 years ago. Time sure does fly!

This year is especially significant. As you noticed from my last blog post, the fourth book in my Three Lost Kids children’s series launched this week. The Three Lost Kids & The Death of the Sugar Fairy is a special Halloween present for my soon-to-be-ten-year-old, Maddie. And, just over a year ago, I started a journey with a book that was meant to be a short story.

Forbidden Mind.

I had no idea then that these teens with parnaormal powers would take over my life so completely. Sam, Drake, Luke and Lucy have lived closely with me all this time as I wrote their stories, and soon the final book in the trilogy will be available.

Forbidden Life is the third and final book in the Forbidden Trilogy, and I’m so excited to get it into your hands. Sadly, it’s been delayed a few weeks due to a combination of events, including the fact that it’s three times longer than the first two and my editors both dropped their jaws when they saw the word count. Needless to say, I want this book to be the best it can be before it gets in your hands, so I hope you’ll be patient and hang in there. It’s coming soon, I promise!

To celebrate the anniversary of this series and the launch of the final book, my publishers have put Forbidden Mind up for free on Amazon for 5 days! From October 3-8, get Forbidden Mind FREE!

This is a perfect chance to sink your teeth into this award winning paranormal thriller/romance trilogy. If you’ve already read it, then share this with your friends and get them hooked, so you can all read Forbidden Life together and call each other at 2 a.m. with such statements as “O.M.G. have you gotten to the part where you find out… ”

Well, you know I’m not going to finish that sentence and spoil it for you. 😛 But let’s just say that Forbidden Life will reveal more secrets than you thought existed, and take you on a thrilling adventure with romance, intrigue and surprises.

FORBIDDEN MIND, on Amazon FREE with a 4.2 star ranking out of 80 reviews, and winner of the Forward National Literature Award in 2011 for second place in drama. Grab your copy and tell a friend now!

Also, for the next three weeks, I’m working with 9 other authors to raise 1,000 books for charity. There’s a big giveaway happening with $200 Amazon GCs, 10 signed books, swag bags and more up for grabs. You get major points for buying Forbidden Mind and inlcuding the purchase code, and now you can ‘buy’ it for FREE! So check out my post on who I would be without books, and enter the giveaway. Let’s help raise awareness for Books for America and give the gift of reading this holiday season!

If you would like a different version of Forbidden Mind (such as PDF or epub for Nook et al) email me at kimberly.kinrade at gmail dot com and let me know which you’d like and I’ll be happy to send it to you. After the 8th, Forbidden Mind will be available everywhere, not just Amazon.

49% of Americans believe their government officials are honest. I don’t know these officials, or their supporters, but I know their secrets, and 49% of Americans are wrong.

My employers pay me well to be right, to know things others can’t. But I don’t know why they brought that boy in, strapped to a stretcher, barely conscious. He asked me for help when I could give none.

I’m a wealthy spy, a talented artist, a martial arts black belt, and a prisoner. They tell me that on my eighteenth birthday, I will be released, free to go to the college of my dreams. It’s my eighteenth birthday, and a man in black is at my door. I know he’s not here to free me.

I know, because I can read minds.

My name is Sam, and this is my story.

So begins the tale of Sam and Drake–from the time they link minds, forging a bond that leads to an unconventional romance–to their fight for survival against the corrupt, twisted organization known as ‘Rent-A-Kid.’

“…a thrilling, dark and deeply romantic read that had me sitting on the edge of my seat and eagerly awaiting the next installment.” ~ Refracted Light Young Adult Book Reviews

“The plot is very ALIAS and DARK ANGEL-like with X-MEN as its backdrop (awesome combo!). Forbidden Mind BLEW my mind!” ~Sour Skittles Book Blog
