I’m so excited to share some fantastic news from author Rachel Van Dyken about her Wingmen Inc. series and Kindle in Motion! So what exactly is Kindle in Motion and what does it mean for books? I’ll let the author tell you about it herself. 😉
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Kindle in Motion so I figured, what better way to explain than to email everyone and give you a little run down on how it happened, what it really is, and what we can expect from Amazon Publishing in the future.
When I signed my contract last year for another four books with Skyscape they asked if I wanted to be a part of a new program. And left it at that. Fast forward to a few months later and they approached me with this idea…I of course went, “OH like Harry Potter?” Because really if it can’t be explained without using Harry Potter WHY bother? 🙂 They went over all the specifics but also warned me that because the technology was so new, it was something that could end up backfiring. But I KNEW my readers would dig it, so I was like yes, yes, a thousand times yes. Anything to help make the reading experience better, right? My only concern was, would you be able to turn off this feature if it distracts you, and since you totally can, I had no more hesitation. I’m happy to have 2 of the 6 books in the entire world that have this feature. Basically there are memes and video footage along with crazy graphics and animation while you read. There is no audio feature because well…The audio feature would make it an actual movie and since we just sold the movie rights (WOOHOO!) That would have been a breach of contract.
When you start the book you can easily turn off the feature, some of the feedback I’ve been getting is that it’s too distracting or the actors dont look like people wanted them too–which is all totally fine and it’s gonna happen 😉 So if you are the type who would rather leave it to your imagination then you are more than welcome to just read the plain version.
Okay with all of that out of the way—*takes deep breath* because this feature is so new and because I want to give everyone a chance to experience it, I wanted to host a really short week long giveaway basically giving readers a chance to win a $200.00 Amazon gift card so they can buy ALL the books, not just The Matchmakers Replacement.

The Matchmaker’s Replacement by Rachel Van Dyken
Series: Wingmen Inc. #2 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: August 9th 2016
Wingman rule number two: never reveal how much you want them.
Lex hates Gabi. Gabi hates Lex. But, hey, at least the hate is mutual, right? All Lex has to do is survive the next few weeks training Gabi in all the ways of Wingmen Inc. and then he can be done with her. But now that they have to work together, the sexual tension and fighting is off the charts. He isn’t sure if he wants to strangle her or throw her against the nearest sturdy table and have his way with her.
But Gabi has a secret, something she’s keeping from not just her best friend but her nemesis too. Lines are blurred as Lex becomes less the villain she’s always painted him to be…and starts turning into something more. Gabi has always hated the way she’s been just a little bit attracted to him—no computer-science major should have that nice of a body or look that good in glasses—but “Lex Luthor” is an evil womanizer. He’s dangerous. Gabi should stay far, far away.
Then again, she’s always wanted a little danger.
