Change is in the air. Not only are we bridging the gap between spring and summer (I can’t believe our kids only have 2.5 weeks of school left!), but our branding is going through some changes as well.

AlexLux-NewsletterHeader

If you’re a fan of Karpov Kinrade (the name under which all Alex Lux books used to be), you may have noticed in the last week that many of our books are now republished under a new name …Alex Lux! It’s not a mistake, and no, we haven’t been pirated. Fear not, dear readers, it is all part of our master plan. We’ve realized since launching Court of Nightfall that it’s become difficult to balance the marketing and branding of writing both fantasy/sci fi for most ages and romance for adults. The genres, readers and overall feel are just so very different. And balancing the launch schedule between the two genres, and what kind of energy we want our website, Facebook, Twitter and newsletter to have… it just made more sense to create a pen name for our romance so we can be ALL ROMANCE with Alex, and ALL FANTASY/SCI FI with KK. It’s all VERY exciting for us!

So that’s what we’ve done. Any book we had under our KK name that is sexually explicit and/or has a primarily romantic theme is now right here, under Alex Lux. We will continue to publish romance under her name, both in paranormal romance and romantic suspense primarily–and anything we’ve written in those genres has been switched to our Alex Lux name. So you will see The Seduced Saga, the Call Me Cat trilogy, the Hitched books and When the Heart Falls as Alex Lux. Our scifi/fantasy work will continue to be under Karpov Kinrade, and so you’ll still see The Nightfall Chronicles and The Forbidden Trilogy there.

Why the name Alex Lux? It’s special to us. Alex is the shortened version of my husband Dmytry’s middle name and Lux comes from our Nightfall series. Lux Aeterna, Nox Aeterna. Latin for Light Eternal, Night Eternal. It’s the emblem for the Twilight Court of Sunrise and Nightfall, which those of you who have read our fantasy and scifi series will be familiar with.

We have some BIG plans for both pen names in the coming months and years, so stay tuned. Make sure you’re signed up for the KK and Alex Lux newsletters so don’t miss out on exclusive giveaways and launch announcements!

And now for the even MORE fun stuff!

As a special limited time opportunity for our fans, we are making limited-edition, loaded “book date” packs available with the books that have Karpov Kinrade as their author name. These books are no longer in print as KK, since they’ve all been converted to Alex Lux. This is your ONLY chance to get copies of these signed books, and only while supplies last. We can’t even order anymore. They are GONE!

We’ll have TWO different options. Read about them below, and order yours HERE.
