An announcement!

August 29, 2014

I can today announce that the title for Book Six in the Never Forget saga is going to be……. ‘Better the Devil You Know’.

I’m not giving much away, except that it is now 1999 and Angel and Rio are headstrong teenagers who are determined to make their own way in the world.

Release date to be announced in the near future…

Ta Dah!!

August 12, 2014

As you know, this Saturday (16th) not only marks my birthday, it is also the day that Summerset and Winner Takes it All go out of publication. Thank you to everyone who has downloaded and enjoyed these two books over the past six years. But, even though it’s my birthday, I’m giving you all a present. My new freebie to replace Winner Takes it All is going to be………..Paradise Lost.

As usual, the book will only be free on Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Kobo and Sony, as Amazon refuse to play ball. In case you haven’t read it. This is what Paradise Lost is all about.

Paradise Lost by Karen Mason

Yay! Me!

I’m not one to blow my own trumpet but I wanted to share my news that I was indeed a runner up in the Good Housekeeping Novel Writing Competition. Readers familiar with my books will not be surprised to know that Never Forget was the one that scooped the prize and being named a ‘Writer to Watch’ is certainly an accolade!

An Announcement

June 14, 2014

New Lou Final Final 1After much consideration and a lot of soul searching, I can announce that from my birthday – Saturday 16th August, I will be withdrawing Summerset and Winner Takes it All from publication. Summerset has become a separate project for me, and I no longer want it in the public domain. In the place of Winner Takes it All, I will be making one of my other books free – more information on this nearer the time.

So, for the next few weeks, Summerset will be free on Smashwords and eventually Barnes and Noble, iTunes etc. Unfortunately I cannot make it free on Amazon as they control the pricing.

Thank you to all the people who have bought and enjoyed Summerset and I’m sure you will see it again in some form soon enough.

Book five of the Never Forget saga. It is 1985 and Ellie and Viva are true women of their time. Both are trying hard to have it all – a career, children and a great relationship with their new husbands. However, things aren’t going to plan. Ellie is struggling to be a step-mother to two teenage children as well as looking after her own daughter Angel, and Rio – the baby her cousin Viva had with rock star Jake Fairhurst, Ellie’s first husband. Viva is ruing the day she gave Rio to Ellie, so she could be with pop star Guy Fitzwilliam and is now desperate to get her daughter back. In typical Viva fashion, she doesn’t mind what measures she has to take to get her way.

 

When a rival record company starts a hostile takeover of Titan Records, Ellie and embarks on a business venture so risky, it could result in her losing everything – including her marriage.

 

Viva launches a new magazine and inadvertently opens a deadly can of worms, meaning a deadly secret is revealed that could tear her family apart.

 

And when a handsome stranger enters both women’s lives, things will never be the same again.

 

Where the Heart Is, is now available on Amazon (US) (UK) and also available on Smashwords This site will be updated when it is available on other sites such as Kobo, ITunes etc.

 

 

 

 

An apology

I’m afraid to say there will be no Phillipa Hardcastle release this summer. The decision hasn’t been taken lightly, but I have too many other things going on to concentrate on her properly. I can promise that Phillipa will be back, bigger and better than ever. Watch this space!

Where the Heart Is will still be released 26th May as planned.
