Prior to my return to writing and publishing my novels, there had been yet another paradigm shift in the marketing world for self-published fiction. Needless to say, I wasn’t privy to what transpired, so I just didn’t keep up with what was going on. I fell out of touch with trends, particularly as they pertained to marketing, which is the life-blood of successful independent authors.
Since I’ve been back, I’ve learned that none of what I thought I knew works anymore! Thankfully, I kept in touch with some of my contemporaries who have figured out how to maneuver in this new world of novel marketing. My first move at the suggestion of one of my longtime author friends, is to separate my contemporary romance and paranormal romance books into separate pen names. Thus, LaVerne Lewis was born. Yesterday!
I have changed my name on the cover of Book One of The Caster Prophecy and Book Two is available for pre-order and will soon be under my new nomme de plume. Thank you for all the readers who didn’t mind that I was dipping into two wells as L.V. Lewis. I hope that you will continue to read my contemporary romances if you like them, but if you’re also a lover of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, please give my new pen name a chance to continue Stellan and Leilani’s story, as well as new series’ featuring other supernatural beings.
I also want to welcome new readers who will be sent in my direction by reading my yet unnamed Caster Prophecy Prequel, which will be available to new subscribers signing up for my Laverne Lewis Newsletter.
