Why aren’t Wake Up Married & Fight Their Feelings in KU with the other books in the Wake Up Married serial?

The Wake Up Married serial is FINALLY complete! All of the episodes are available on Amazon currently and several bundle options will be released in the next few weeks.

Originally, due to the wait between episodes, etc, my co-writer and I chose to make them available in Kindle Unlimited to make it easier and more cost effective for people to follow along. If I had my druthers, I would leave the entire serial in KU for another month, but due to Amazon’s requirement that each KU agreement last for 90 days, I’ve had to choose between pulling out the books as they end their most recent 90 day cycle, or commit to another three months. I chose to pull the books as they end their current cycles because:

  1. There are some readers who have been waiting patiently for the books to come to other platforms, like All Romance Ebooks or Barnes & Noble or iTunes.
  2. It will be easier for us to apply Kindle Unlimited effectively in the future if we can free all of the books entirely, and then resubmit them later this year so they will all have the same end date at the same time.

Which means that currently, every book in the serial except for Wake Up Married and Fight Their Feelings are in Kindle Unlimited for at least a few more weeks. The end date for the remaining books are:

Meet the Family: 5/8

Do the Holidays: 5/22

Fight Their Feelings: out of Kindle Unlimited now, but not on other vendors yet; I’ll wait until the others are released so it will be available in order

Meet the Mob: 6/1

Happy Ending: 6/13

My plan is to have the books out to other vendors as soon as possible. I’m also discussing with Amazon currently whether or not pre-orders for the books on other vendor sites violates the Kindle Unlimited agreement, so long as the books aren’t actually released until the KU term is up.

As of today, Wake Up Married is available on All Romance Ebooks (ARe)! And will soon be available at B&N, Kobo, iTunes, Scribd and more. (This reminds me that I need to add it to Smashwords today, too. So much to do!) I’ll put out another message when the book is available on those platforms.

Today, I wanted to take the time to explain why WUM and FTF are not available on Kindle Unlimited with the other books. This could be frustrating for some readers, I understand, but I want to emphasize that it is not meant to be. It’s frustrating to me, too! I wish Amazon offered either a month long option for Kindle Unlimited or that they didn’t require exclusivity at all to participate in that program. Regardless, things worked out the way they have, and so this is the result. We’ll get all the books out of KU and out to other vendors as soon as possible.

In the meantime, thank you so much for your ongoing support and love for this series! Our readers are the best!

Coming Soon! Will & Patrick Wake Up Married: Episode 1 | A Vibrant Rom-Com Serial by Leta Blake & Alice Griffiths!



Join the fun in this vibrant first installment of the new romantic comedy serial by best-selling author Leta Blake and newcomer Alice Griffiths!

After a drunken night of hot sex in Vegas, strangers Will Patterson and Dr. Patrick McCloud wake up married. A quickie divorce is the most obvious way out—unless you’re the heir of a staunchly Catholic mafia boss with a draconian position on the sanctity of marriage.

Stuck between a rock and a hard place, Will and Patrick don’t like it, or each other, but they have to make the best of it until they can find another way out of their marriage. To ensure the trust fund Will’s charitable foundation relies on isn’t revoked by his mobster grandfather, he and Patrick travel to Will’s hometown of Healing, South Dakota, posing as a newlywed couple in the throes of true love at first sight.

Complicating their scheme are Will’s unresolved feelings for his all-too-recent ex-boyfriend Ryan, and Patrick’s desire to get back to the only thing that really matters to him in life: neurosurgery. Will they fool everyone? Or will the mafia get wind that their marriage is a fake? Throw their simmering attraction into the mix and all bets are off!
