My First Print Book. Sigh...

It's funny. I'm an ebook pundit all the way, but when I heard Ellora's Cave were combining my first three ebooks (PICTURE THIS, PAY UP and PLAY ME) with them into a print anthology? Well, I went all giddy and mushy at the knees :). Seriously. There's just something about holding a book, something about that tangible proof that screams I did indeed write a book. Actually, it's a lot more than that one book now, but the physical manifestation of all that work will be so cool to actually see, hold.

When they asked me to come up with a title for it, I drew a blank for awhile. The stories are all quite different, the characters diverse, but there was a common thread. The heroes and heroines of the three stories all found love when it was the last thing they expected, but the thing they all needed the most. It wasn't hard after that and Perfectly Unexpected just seemed so fitting. I haven't seen it physically myself yet, but it's started to hit some of the outlets. It's already up at Barnes & Noble and the other book sellers will follow suite soon enough. I'll probably do some giveaways when I get some copies in my hot hands! And I'm digging the cover. How about you?


  1. Love the cover! Congrats. :)


  2. OMG! That's so wonderful, Kaily! Congrats !!!!!

    The cover and the title are so awesome! And the great thing being they all start with "P" ;) and 2 words! Like all your titles.... Woo hoo!! So happy for you!

    And if you do a giveaway, I'll be there first ;) LOL!

  3. OMG that's awesome! Congrats!!! I think the title is 'perfect' ;) and the cover is definitely hot.

  4. Kaily, that's wonderful! Congrats to you!! Must go look for your third book - loved the first two. I have been sadly remiss in my reading...

  5. Thanks, Amber!

    Ju, I'm waiting to get hold of copies myself so as soon as I do... Yeah, the 'P' thing and the 2 word titles is no cooincidence. Guess I'm stuck in a groove there because I just wrote a book called PIN DOWN LOL!

    Thanks, Rula!! Hot is right.

    Jackie thank you so much. Actually, I have 4 books out now *tongue in check*. PLAY ME and POINT BLANK are my releases so far this year. Hard at work on more. Hope you're doing well!

  6. Kaily, a print book...your own anthology. That is wonderful. Congratulations!
