FAQs

Where can I go to stay up to date with your work?

There are several options! If you're on Facebook, you can join my reader group. Or if you'd prefer email updates, you can join my mailing list. On the other hand, if you'd prefer to be only notified about releases and new books, you can follow me on books2read or Bookbub.
You can find all of the links to follow me here:
==> https://www.authorlauragreenwood.co.uk/p/follow-laura-greenwood.html

Is there a complete book list?

Absolutely! You can find it here (with lots of pretty covers!):
==> https://www.authorlauragreenwood.co.uk/p/book-list.html
For more information about books and series, you can check out this handy spreadsheet.

Is there a recommended reading order?

Each of my series can be read on its own, but I have several “worlds” which encompass more than one series, and there is a suggested order for those - normally it’s simply the order I published them in, but to make it easy, I do have a list on my website:

I've found an error in one of your books, what do I do?

First, I'd like to apologise. Every effort is made to ensure each and every book is error-free. Unfortunately, errors are pesky creatures and sometimes slip through. If that's the case, please fill out this form and I'll get it fixed! 

Your book was originally in a boxed set, but now I can’t find it.

Most anthologies/boxed sets are only available for a limited time and then go off sale. In most cases, the book is already back out in the world. There is a list of titles on the page below. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please ask and I’ll point you in the right direction!

Your book isn’t in Kindle Unlimited, will that change?

No, that isn’t going to change. Being in Kindle Unlimited means that I would have to keep my books exclusive to Amazon, which not only excludes readers who use Apple Books, Kobo, Nook, Google Play, and other purchasing sites, but also those who can access my books via library sites such as Overdrive, or subscription sites like Hoopla and Scribd. Not being able to have my books available on as many places as possible is a deal-breaker for me, which is why I choose not to do it. I regularly run sales and have some free book ones and prequels for readers to be able to try before they buy.

Do you have any audiobooks?

I do! I'm an audio listener myself, so I love getting my work in audio. You can find more information about them here:
==> https://www.authorlauragreenwood.co.uk/p/audio.html

Do you have any completed series?

Yes, I have multiple completed series, both solo and co-writes. Some are also complete in audio. More are planned soon (you can find out more information on the completed series page of my website

Complete Solo Series:
Complete Co-Written Series:

Do you have any free books?

I do! Mostly because I know without KU it's a risk for people to try my books. The following books and stories are free. Please note that these do all lead into paid series, though some of them are able to be read as standalones. You can find them here: https://www.authorlauragreenwood.co.uk/p/free.html
You can also sign up to my mailing list to get a free chapter of my newsletter serial every week (sent until the book itself is finished!)

Is there any news on the next book in XXX Series?

(Swap out XXX for a series of your choice!) 
I will finish every series that I start. For series that follow the same main character, all the books in the series are available for pre-order by the time book one launches, so you can see when the series is going to be complete (in general, I try to make this period of time less than six months). For series that change main character between books, I spread them out further (but will always finish a series). Of the currently on-going series of standalones, The Black Fan will have six books in total, The Paranormal Council will have fifteen in total, The Shifter Season will have eight books, and the Forgotten Gods series is on-going with no set amount as it is a passion project series for me.

Why are some of your books 99 cents but not others?

Books of mine which are 99 cents are at a sale price. Sometimes, I have limited time sales on backlist titles, or I have a special pre-order price for a book one. This is to give people a chance to try a series at a cheaper price. There is no guarantee about the when or length of time a book will be 99 cents, or if/when a book will go on sale. 

Can I join your ARC team?

We only open up spots in my ARC team once a year, but there is a form on my website that you can fill in, and you’ll be contacted when those spots open up! My ARC team operates an opt-in system (e.g. if you don’t like paranormal romance, you can choose to skip that ARC without losing your spot on the team). Reviews on Amazon, Nook, Kobo, Apple, Google Play, Goodreads, or Bookbub are accepted in any combination to join my team.
==> https://www.authorlauragreenwood.co.uk/p/join-lauras-arc-team.html
If you use Booksprout, some (but not all) of my books are also posted there. You will be required to leave reviews on two sites of your choice if you go this direction. You can follow me here:
==> https://booksprout.co/author/1971/laura-greenwood

Do you write all your books yourself?

Yes! If it has my name on the cover, then I did an equal share of the writing. E.g. if it’s just my name, I wrote all of it, if there’s one co-author listed, I wrote half, if there are two co-authors listed, I wrote a third...you get the picture! I have far too many ideas and take far too much joy in writing to let anyone else near doing it for me!

How do you write & publish so much?

Being an author is my full time job, and as I'm sure anyone with their own business will tell you, it's too easy to work too much. I write every day, and plot in advance so I know where a story is going. For me, it makes the process a lot quicker! 

Do you have any pen names?

No, this is the one and only pen name I write under.

Do you go to signings and events?

I do, but mostly in the UK where I live. You can find the ones I’m going to on my website:
==> https://www.authorlauragreenwood.co.uk/p/signings-events.html

Can I order signed paperbacks/swag?

You can! I have a form on my website. Postage varies based on the number of books and is the lowest I can manage from the UK with careful packaging. I offer discounts on multiple books purchased.
Most of the items you see during giveaways in this group are also available for purchase!
==> https://www.authorlauragreenwood.co.uk/p/shop.html

I have a question that isn’t answered here, what should I do?

You can either post in my Reader Group, or fill out the contact form here!

Do you write dark/bully romance?

No, I don’t. It isn’t for me for personal and professional reasons, so you won’t find dark/bully romance among my books.

Why has your cover/title changed?

There are several reasons I’ve done this in the past, including:
  • The designer asked if they could make some tweaks (e.g. The Paranormal Council, Grimalkin Academy: Kittens)
  • To make the covers more genre appropriate so they can reach the right readers (e.g. Return Of The Fae/Blessed, Spell Caster, ME Series)
  • Rebranding a planned standalone into a series (e.g. Ashryn Barker, The Fae Queen Of Winter)
  • Moving books into the same series (e.g. Forgotten Gods
It’s never done without a lot of thought and consideration as I know it can be confusing for readers.
