When’s your next book, and how do I keep track?

I seem to always have a new book coming out, and as soon as I have a few details about the book, I include it in my "Book Releases" list. ("I" being my awesome assistant, Melissa.) You can check that out here:

Questions about Contacting JK

How can I find JK on social media?

JK loves interacting with readers, fans and friends on social media!  Please keep in mind that she has two kids and a hefty writing schedule, so she tends to pop over in fits and starts.  At the same time, JK can procrastinate with the best of them, so she is frequently sighted at these locations:

 

How can I get in touch with JK?

The best way to get in touch with JK is via the contact form on this website. The contents of that form get emailed to JK and the form functionality helps her make sure nothing gets lost.

Please be patient! JK receives more emails than can be dealt with on a daily basis. If you haven’t received an answer within 3 months, feel free to email again. And be sure to read through this FAQ. Your question may already be answered!

Facebook comments (either on the Julie Kenner page or the J. Kenner page) are also welcome and appreciated!  But please do NOT send a message via Twitter direct messaging, JK’s Facebook profile, or her Facebook Page message box. Conversations or questions through Twitter and Facebook messaging is simply too hard to sort through. Chances are good it will either get missed entirely or disappear down the thread of messages into the bog, never to be seen again. While JK and/or her assistant try to answer those messages, we can’t guarantee!

Questions about JK's books

How do I read your digital books without an ereader?

I'm glad you asked! Some of my books are digital only, but that doesn't mean you have to be out of luck. So long as you live in a territory where that digital book is sold, you can read the book without an ereader. All you need is access to a smart phone, tablet, or computer. I wrote all about it here: http://bit.ly/ReadWithoutAnEreader

What is the reading order for all the books in the world of Damien Stark?

(Links coming soon)
Original trilogy:
Release Me
Claim Me
Complete Me

Novellas: 
Take Me (Nikki and Damien Stark Ever After Novella ... You meet Evan from Wanted)
Tame Me (Jamie and Ryan's story)

Have Me (Nikki and Damien Stark Ever After Novella)
Play My Game (You meet Jackson from the Stark International trilogy)(Nikki and Damien Stark Ever After Novella)


Stark International trilogy (novels, Jackson & Syl) (can be read as a stand alone trilogy ... BUT you learn some key stuff about Damien, so best to start with Release Me <G>)
Say My Name
On My Knees
Under My Skin

MORE Nikki and Damien Stark Ever Novellas (can be read without reading Stark International, but there will be minor spoilers!)
Seduce Me
Unwrap Me
Deepest Kiss (You meet Dallas from SIN trilogy)
 *Steal My Heart is a FREE short story available in Take My Dare or from JK’s newsletter (about Jackson & Sylvia)

SIN trilogy (can be read entirely as a stand-alone trilogy without the others)
Dirtiest Secret
Hottest Mess
Sweetest Taboo

More Novellas
Take My Dare (Jackson/Sylvia Novella)
Entice Me (Nikki/Damien)
Tempt Me  (Jamie and Ryan's Novella) (can be read right after reading Tame Me, but there will be some minor spoilers re what has happened to other characters during the passage of time)

Nikki and Damien novel soon to be released:
Anchor Me (full length novel, includes story elements from all novellas but can be read even if you’ve only read the original Stark Trilogy.  Really!)
Hold Me (novella following Anchor Me)

 

Also, the Stark World series launching in July with Wicked Grind is set in the world of Stark International, but those books will be stand alones, so you can read any of them in any order, though you may hit a few spoilers about the characters from the main series above 🙂

 

Also, also, the Most Wanted books (Wanted, Heated, and Ignited) are set in Chicago, but it's the same world.  As noted above, you meet Evan from Wanted in Take Me.  And there is a brief cameo of Nikki and Damien (after Take Me, but before Say My Name) in Ignited.

What is the reading order for the books with Nikki Fairchild and Damien Stark?

I'm glad you asked!

Damien and Nikki's story started with the original trilogy. The reading order is: Release Me, Claim Me, Complete Me.  After Complete Me, you can also jump to the fourth full-length N&D novel, Anchor Me.  You can find these books here.

Because both fans and I enjoyed spending time with the characters, I created "Stark Ever After" which follows Nikki and Damien after their primary story concluded with Complete Me.  The Stark Ever After novellas are digital-first stories, shorter than a novel, and intended to give readers a peek into the continuing lives of Nikki and Damien.  The Stark Ever After novellas are here.

You can read the four full-length books without reading the novellas.  But if you want the full, chronological experience, then follow this order:

 

The reading order is:

  • Release Me - novel
  • Claim Me - novel
  • Complete Me - novel
  • Take Me - novella (also introduces Evan Black from Wanted, book one of the Most Wanted trilogy.  That series consists of three stand-alone novels. Damien and Nikki  make a cameo appearance in Ignited, book 3 in the Most Wanted series.)
  • Have Me - novella
  • Play My Game - novella (this novella introduces Jackson Steele, who is the hero of the Stark International trilogy)
  • Seduce Me - novella (This novella was originally on sale for a limited time as part of the Sweet Seduction box-set, the proceeds of which went to charity. That box-set is no longer available, but the story is available for purchase individually.) (Though published after Say My Name (Stark International #1), chronologically, Seduce Me comes before the events in that novel.
  • UnWrap Me- novella
  • Deepest Kiss - novella
    • Dallas Sykes plays a significant role in this novella. He's first introduced in the Jackson/Sylvia trilogy, and his full story is set out in the SIN Trilogy, Dirtiest Secret, Hottest Mess, & Sweetest Taboo.  If you want to follow that path, this is where to do it.
  • Take My Dare - novella (Technically, this is a Sylvia and Jackson novella, but Nikki and Damien have a significant role.
  • Entice Me- novella
  • Anchor Me - novel
  • Hold Me - novella

 

 

 

 

Is it better if I read your books in a certain order? If so, what order?

For some series, yes, it's better to read them in order - for others no. [[[[[[ MORE INFO HERE WITH LINKS TO SERIES PAGES ]]]

I love how you list the characters in your books on this site, but you’re missing someone! Where can I go to suggest an addition?

Yay! I'm glad you're enjoying the new character information supplied for various stories. For instance {{{ link to specific character page with good details }}}.

We've been going through and adding primary and secondary characters but could easily have missed some people. If you have a character you'd like to see on the site, contact me through this form and I'll see what I can do!
