Bitter Frost is currently in Production and will be out in 2019. Mysterious Teacher is currently filming. There are some major stunts, wires, and fight choreography in both films. Amazing make-up, costumes, and even robotics will be used. I am blessed to be the Creative Head of both films as the writer and director. My former experience and training as a writer, producer, and director before I became a full-time author, really came in handy. Writing and Directing is something I really love as much as writing books. To me, it's another form of storytelling, and I'm blessed I was recognized by film festivals around the world with over 15 film festival Wins and 22 Official Selections, as well as screenings in theaters and tv in Asia, Europe, and the U.S. Filmmaking is art, where all the elements from visual, sound, effects, script, acting, and technology come together. Mysterious Teacher, which has some period/historical piece, is a complex film that spans decades, is a mashed up of genres, and touches on many significant events in our history. Not to mention awesome vampire scenes and female b$ass moments. Set to release in theaters and streaming in late 2018. (less)

I have helped other authors get started, helped other authors connect with other authors and even suggested authors to traditional publishers to publish. As an author who have been writing and publishing for almost 15 years, you see how things change and how things stay the same. I've seen authors come and go. Some do very well and leave, while others stay steady and still make a good living or at least a living with writing. The important thing is to stay true to yourself as an author (including don't follow fads but write what matters to you), and also make good friends with other authors and readers.

Author A Parody is my homage to the book industry where things happen so quickly and things change. I've encountered true blue friends in the industry (which is why I've been in it for 15 years and is still strong!), and is large a very POSITIVE and STRONG MESSAGE for people to see that someone like my character in Author A Parody could make it despite being what she is in the series.

I am not doing any signings for the rest of 2016, but I will be making appearances in person on a Meet-the Fans tour in Asia and around the US in 2017. Hope to be able to see you at one of them :D(less)

Discussion Questions for The Phantom Diaries by Kailin Gow (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 05, 2010 12:08AM
Description: What happens to the Phantom after the tragedy at the Paris Opera House is the basis for this fantastic tale of The Phantom Diaries, loosely based on Gaston Leroux's classic, The Phantom of the Opera, but with a new tale and a modern twist. This new series for older teens and young adults is told through the eyes of 18 year-old Annette Binoche, who lands a job at the New York Metropolitan Opera House as a seamstress' assistant only to become the lead singer of the Opera House, with the help of the mysterious, yet highly-seductive Phantom. The modern YA retelling of the classic Gaston Leroux The Phantom of the Opera with a romantic paranormal twist. This imaginative new sexy younger tale of the Phantom is a stand alone novel, with no need to have first read The Phantom of the Opera.

Hi Cici, Thank you for your friendship! Please do read The Fire Wars if you get a chance. It's now out, and if you want a feel for it, check out the Official Trailer now posted on my videos section. I do have a bit of everything because I love exploring new things and have an interest in many things. Phantom Diaries is one of my favorites because it is a complete twist in an old classic, a retelling. My other favorites are... the PULSE Series, the FROST Series, FADE, and now Steampunk Scarlett! Good questions :D

Cici Hi Kailin! Thank you for your friendship! I was browsing through on here and I found your book, the Fire Wars and I am VERY excited to read it, I can't wait for it to come out. I've never read any of your books before and they ALL seem pretty interesting, you have a little bit of everything.. You have the vampires and the faeires and angels and probably more. I don't know which to choose to read first, even the phantom diaries looks awesome. I was wondering which book of yours is your favorite?

Well we know something comes off in the first book that is on its cover. As far as the cover for the second book, Dark Memories, another object which is worn by either Eric or Annette comes off, and it is going to be on the cover :) We haven't decided yet on which one, though so stay tune.

Forever Frost's cover should be ready by next week.

Thank you Jamie! Forever Frost is coming soon before you know it. Since you asked about PULSE, it's coming out in August. It'll be on on B&N then. I'm so glad you enjoyed the books. Maybe you can help me decide who Breena from Bitter Frost ends up with. And if you read PULSE, you'll be introduced to some incredibly sexy vampire guys, too.
Glad to have you as a friend here and on FB, Jamie!

Kailin Hi Jamie! Thank you for getting Bitter Frost! I hope you will enjoy it. Forever Frost (Book 2 of Bitter Frost) will be released in September. PULSE will be released at the end of August. Both will be available for sure on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. Pre-orders are available on Amazon.com for PULSE now. Forever Frost will be available for pre-orders on Amazon.com soon.


message 3: by Jamie

Jamie Hi! I have a question. I just bought your book Bitter Frost. I was looking in it to see about other books and saw Forever Frost & pulse. I don't see them listed on here and when I went to your website I didn't see them. Wondering if they are out to buy or when they are going to be released and where can I purchase them. I buy my books from Barnes & Noble.com Thanks!
