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)
Kailin Gow Aww Thank you so much for knowing I have sponsored and even put together book signing events I have invited other authors to be part of to raise…moreAww Thank you so much for knowing I have sponsored and even put together book signing events I have invited other authors to be part of to raise awareness for issues that concern teens, women, and children (all very special for me). 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)

The Study Series by Maria V. Snyder

Poison Study Magic StudyFire Study



goodreads summary for book 1-The Barnes & Noble Review
Like the deadly toxins sought out by the ill-fated food taster Yelena in Maria V. Snyder's debut novel, Poison Study is a powerfully compelling romantic fantasy that will slip under readers' skin, invade their bloodstreams, and seize their heartstrings.

Yelena, convicted of murdering the son of a powerful general, awaits execution. But with only a few hours left, she is offered an incredible reprieve -- and agrees to become the new food taster for Commander Ambrose, the military leader of Ixia. Living in a palace and eating only the best meals is a dramatic change for Yelena, who spent the last year locked up in a rat-infested dungeon, eating gruel. But she soon realizes that she has more to worry about than ingesting potentially lethal poisons in the commander's meals. The general whose son she murdered has vowed bloody vengeance, and everyone in the commander's retinue look at Yelena as an untrustworthy criminal. The longer she stays alive, however, the more she begins to understand her own perplexing abilities -- all of which will be put to the test when cunning rebels plot to take control of Ixia.

While many genre-blending novels seem to unintentionally dilute the literary domains involved, Poison Study is both a riveting romance and a spellbinding fantasy. The richly historied and vividly described realm that Snyder has created is completely convincing and large enough to encompass (hopefully) many more novels featuring Yelena, an enigmatic heroine with so many secrets and so much promise.

Frost series by Kailin Gow

Bitter FrostForever FrostSilver FrostFrost Kisses



Goodreads Summary for book 1-All her life, Breena had always dreamed about fairies as though she lived among them...beautiful fairies living among mortals and living in Feyland. In her dreams, he was always there the breathtakingly handsome but dangerous Winter Prince, Kian, who is her intended. When Breena turns sixteen, she begins seeing fairies and other creatures mortals don't see. Her best friend Logan suddenly acts very protective. Then she sees Kian, who seems intent on finding her and carrying her off to Feyland. That's fine and all, but for the fact that humans rarely survive a trip to Feyland, a kiss from a fairy generally means death to the human unless that human has fairy blood in them or is very strong, and although Kian seemed to be her intended, he seems to hate her and wants her dead.

goodreads summary for book 1-This is not your typical boybites-girl love story.

Technically Sunshine can't get killed-because she's immortal. Well, not quite yet. Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with her dark-side-loving twin sister at a Goth club called Club Fang, Magnus, a vampire hottie, went for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite.

And now, after the unfortunate slaying of the vampire leader, Sunshine, her sister Rayne, and Magnus must find the one thing that can solve her problem: the Holy Grail. They wish it were a joke but it's not. It's absolutely necessary that Sunshine gets out of this in time, because somehow she scored the hottest prom date in her school, the mouth-watering Jake Wilder. So she just can't be a vampire for the prom-let alone the rest of eternity.

goodreads summary for book 1-In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

goodreads summary for book 1-Nikolai Wroth, once a ruthless human warlord in the 1700s and now a general in the rebel vampire army, needs to find his Bride, the one woman who can render him truly alive. As a turned human, he doesn’t enjoy a heartbeat or breaths and is consequently weaker than fully blooded vampires. He wants his Bride for the power she will bring him and can hardly believe it when his heart beats for Myst the Coveted, a mad, fey, mythological creature.

Myst is known throughout the world as the most beautiful Valkyrie, part chillingly fierce warrior, part beguiling seductress who can “make you want her even as she’s killing you.” She has devoted her life to protecting an ancient, powerful jewel and to fighting the vampires, and she now sees a way to torment one—for with Wroth’s heartbeat comes consuming sexual desire that can only be slaked by her.

She eludes him for five years, but he has finally chased her to ground and stolen the jewel which commands her, giving him absolute power over her. While he possesses it, he can make her do anything, and he plans to in order for her to experience first hand the agonizing, unending lust she’d purposely subjected him to for half a decade. Yet when Wroth realizes he wants more from her and frees her, will she come back to him?

The first in Cole's Immortals After Dark series was originally published as one of three novellas in "Playing Easy to Get". It was also available on its own as a special promotional ebook from Simon & Schuster.

The Luxe (Luxe, #1) by Anna Godbersen Rumors (Luxe, #2) by Anna Godbersen Envy (Luxe, #3) by Anna Godbersen Splendor (Luxe, #4) by Anna Godbersen



goodreads summary for book 1-Pretty girls in pretty dresses, partying until dawn.

Irresistible boys with mischievous smiles and dangerous intentions.

White lies, dark secrets, and scandalous hookups.

This is Manhattan, 1899.

Beautiful sisters Elizabeth and Diana Holland rule Manhattan's social scene. Or so it appears. When the girls discover their status among New York City's elite is far from secure, suddenly everyone—from the backstabbing socialite Penelope Hayes, to the debonair bachelor Henry Schoonmaker, to the spiteful maid Lina Broud—threatens Elizabeth's and Diana's golden future.

With the fate of the Hollands resting on her shoulders, Elizabeth must choose between family duty and true love. But when her carriage overturns near the East River, the girl whose glittering life lit up the city's gossip pages is swallowed by the rough current. As all of New York grieves, some begin to wonder whether life at the top proved too much for this ethereal beauty, or if, perhaps, someone wanted to see Manhattan's most celebrated daughter disappear...

In a world of luxury and deception, where appearance matters above everything and breaking the social code means running the risk of being ostracized forever, five teenagers lead dangerously scandalous lives. This thrilling trip to the age of innocence is anything but innocent.

“The passion I feel for you is more than you’re prepared for. - Eric”
Kailin Gow, The Phantom Diaries

“There is no law stronger than that of
magic. - Kian”
Kailin Gow, Bitter Frost

“Change back to your ugly self before I change your face for you,” Logan said, Silver Frost.”
Kailin Gow, Silver Frost

“Hush,” I said. “I’m here, and I’m not letting you out of my sight anytime soon so keep holding me tight.” I looked down, a little more than afraid of plummeting hundreds of feet down.- Breena to Kian, Silver Frost”
Kailin Gow, Silver Frost

“We are meant to be.” He pressed his lips to mine again; against myself, against my worry, I once again succumbed to the power of his kiss. “I know that now. Our love is stronger than magic, stronger than the laws of all Feyland. It will survive this...whatever the future brings.” - Prince Kian, Silver Frost.”
Kailin Gow, Silver Frost

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


message 24: by Cici

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?

Kailin Mable wrote: "i'm curious to know what the cover of the second book to the phantom diaries will look like"

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.


message 9: by Mable

Mable i'm curious to know what the cover of the second book to the phantom diaries will look like


Kailin Amanda wrote: "When do we get to see the cover of the next book?"

Forever Frost's cover is now up on Amazon.com. Forever Frost releases soon (September 1, 2010).


Kailin Amanda wrote: "When do we get to see the cover of the next book?"

Hi Amanda!

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

I'm waiting anxiously for it, too :)


Kailin Jamie wrote: "Thanks, I seen them on amazon now but not b&n. I'll keep watching though. If not I will get them from amazon for sure. I loved Bitter Frost, could not put it down only for work & sleep. Keep up..."

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!


message 5: by Jamie

Jamie Thanks, I seen them on amazon now but not b&n. I'll keep watching though. If not I will get them from amazon for sure. I loved Bitter Frost, could not put it down only for work & sleep. Keep up the terrific writing!


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!
