The big news I have to share with you is that I have decided to create a pen name: Serenity Ackles.
It wasn't until I had committed to the Prophecy of Magic boxed set that I realised that maybe Cursed Luck should have been written under a different name.
If you've now read Cursed Luck, you'll know that it's very different from any of my other books - not only did I throw an adult story at you (as opposed to the YA you're familiar with), I also made it a reverse harem.
There are many people who don't like this and just want the YA C. L. Coffey - and that's perfectly fine! I also know I've got young readers and honestly, I'd put Cursed Luck at an 18+ audience. I say this aware that there are younger readers who will read it and enjoy it, but I do know there are parents who will read my books before letting their children read them.
I've always kept the Louisiangel series as clean as possible and with profanity to a minimum, and I want to keep C. L. Coffey (it is so weird talking about myself in the third person) as this 'brand'. You know when you read one of these books what you're getting.
But, during the writing process of Cursed Luck, I also realised that I enjoyed writing more adult books, and I adore reverse harem stories.
So, to keep things simple, I created Serenity Ackles and I intend on separating the two, effective immediately. Which means no more none YA books in this newsletter, or on my FB page / group.
This newsletter and Serenity's will go out on the same day. Both will feature tidbits of my boring and mundane life, and probably the odd picture of a cat, but the books mentioned will be appropriate to the audience, as will be the spoilers. As such, like the books, I recommend and 18+ audience for Serenity's newsletter, just in case of spoilers and teasers.
If you enjoyed Cursed Luck and would like to read the next book in the series, I recommend you sign up to Serenity's newsletter, and follow her on Facebook. And I'll conveniently provide links below:
