I'm a USA Today Bestselling Author!


Yesterday, I cried real tears of joy. If you know me, I don't cry easily. But, yesterday was an exception. I've been at this writing gig for nine years! In that time, I've written over 30 novels and short stories. I've contracted books with publishers but now I'm mostly a self-published author. I've spent years watching the landscape of my industry change, sometimes for good and sometimes not so good. I kept plugging away, learning new tricks, taking courses, and focusing on my craft. The books I wrote nine years ago are not necessarily the books I would write today, but they are part of who I am as an author. Why am I telling you all of this? 

Because after years of pouring everything I have into my books, dealing with rejection, building a readership, making some amazing friends, and having days where I wanted to throw in the towel this happened...


I became a USA Today Bestselling author, joining the ranks of so many authors I admire. I've wanted to write for as long as I can remember. This title doesn't define me as an author but it gives me a sense of accomplishment that I've earned. 

Thanks to all of you who have supported me with not only this release  but for all of my books throughout the years. If we've just met, I look forward to connecting with you. Today, I have a renewed sense of purpose and I truly feel like I'm just getting started!

I didn’t plan to lie but now it’s my only option.

Kara
My husband left me.
Our life was perfect or so I thought.
We adopted a gorgeous little girl.
Our very own miracle.
After my divorce, I meet an intriguing stranger.
Rich, powerful, sexy, and determined.
He’s wonderful to my daughter.
He treats her like she’s his own.
I find myself in a fairytale.
Every story has something dark lurking at the surface.
Xavier has a secret.

Xavier
My late ex-girlfriend kept a secret from me.
She had our child but gave her up for adoption.
Four years later, I’ve uncovered the truth.
The woman raising my daughter is beautiful, loving, and intelligent.
Any man would be lucky to have her.
And then there is my child.
The love I didn’t know existed.
I don’t know how to disrupt their world and tell them who I am.
I insert myself into their lives instead, hoping to get what I want.
I’ve fallen for Kara but our beginning is built on a lie.
That’s my fault.
How can I tell her who I am, without losing her?
Without losing them?

HELP! I LOST 3,500 PREORDERS!



There was a GLITCH with AMAZON!  The Romantically Ever After Box Set was scheduled to release on Tuesday, May 12, 2020. On Sunday, we received an email letting us know that the preorder had been cancelled and customers were being notified. The book was pulled! Two days before release. Seriously?


As many of you know, my fellow authors and I have been promoting, marketing, and sharing about this book for over six months. There's a lot of money tied up in that advertising, most of it we can't get back. The toughest part of this whole thing? We WERE in a good position to possibly hit the USA Today Bestsellers list going into release day. We needed those preorders.

TURNING LEMONS INTO LEMONADE!

When Amazon glitches and tanks thousands of preorders, you call in your tribe!

I'm asking (begging) for your HELP. Amazon has fixed their mistake (sort of). They put the book back up in time for release day but they CANNOT reinstate those 3,500 preorders.  That's a devastating blow for this set. It took months to get those orders. We have a week, if we want to hit the USA Today list,  (trust me, we do now more than ever!) to get those sales back.

Here's where you come in. If you have already preordered this book, PLEASE repurchase it. You won't be charged twice. If you haven't bought it, and have $0.99 to spare, the book is available now. Please consider supporting us. 




If you preordered on nook, Kobo, or Apple Books, Romantically Ever After will be hitting your device as scheduled on May 12.

Any shares on this post would be greatly APPRECIATED! As always, thanks for your support. We may be down but we are not out. 

AUTHORS/BLOGGERS... if you have pages you can share this set in, we would really love it. If you have room in your newsletters, that would be fantastic!

Sleeping with his friend’s little sister is probably off-limits. Getting her pregnant definitely is. Tiana Hall has plans. She’s going to go to grad school, get a great job, and then find a man and start a family. Ty Morgan leads a great bachelor life. He has a good job, a nice home, and the freedom to do whatever he wants. So, the two of them are on the same page when it comes to an evening of hot sex at her brother’s wedding. One night. No commitments. Simple…as long as her brother doesn’t find out. Except this one night is about to turn into the biggest commitment of all. And there’s nothing simple about telling your friend you knocked up his sister. Relationship status: It’s Complicated. Where Did This Story Come From? Back in 2017, we wrote our first contemporary romance. Up until then, we had only written paranormal romance. The book, Friends with Benefits, was intended to be a standalone. But there was a couple who was friends with the hero and heroine who needed their story told, which you can read about in Rumor Has It. And then the hero in Friends with Benefits had a sexy and intriguing friend…and readers wanted his story. So that’s how Meant to Be came to be written. In that book, the hero, Nate, had a sister and co-worker/ friend that made their appearances and ideas began being formed. Big brothers are always protective of their little sisters, so what if the friend not only slept with the sister but got her pregnant? And what if this pregnancy was a result of a casual encounter? Would the two of them be enemies, work together, would she even tell him about the baby? Or maybe they’d fall in love. All while trying to get caught, of course. And that is the story of how one book is now four. We can’t wait for you to read Ty and Tiana’s story in It’s Complicated, found exclusively in Romantically Ever After.

About the Author

R.L. Kenderson is two best friends writing under one name. Renae has always loved reading, and in third grade, she wrote her first poem where she learned she might have a knack for this writing thing. Lara remembers sneaking her grandmother’s Harlequin novels when she was probably too young to be reading them, and since then, she knew she wanted to write her own. When they met in college, they bonded over their love of reading and the TV show Charmed. What really spiced up their friendship was when Lara introduced Renae to romance novels. When they discovered their first vampire romance, they knew there would always be a special place in their hearts for paranormal romance. After being unable to find certain storylines and characteristics they wanted to read about in the hundreds of books they consumed, they decided to write their own. One lives in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and the other in the Kansas City area where they’re a sonographer/stay-at-home mom/wife and pharmacist/mother by day, and they’re a sexy author by night. They communicate through phone, email, and whole lot of messaging.
