Slow and steady and all that, right? I’m happy to announce that editing for Kraken My Heart is done, the cover has been approved, and all I’m waiting on is an official release date. Once that’s been selected, I will pick a release date for Wishes For Rohi, my second self-pub currently in the capable paws of Elouise East of ClockTower Editing!
Wishes was a book I had put off releasing, but the fact is… well. It’s already finished. I’ve barely been able to write one new chapter for the CHC prequel over the last few weeks, and then over here I have this totally complete manuscript that’s just doing nothing except collecting dust. My health has not fully recovered, and I’m still working like crazy. I simply can’t write anything new fast enough, and sooo tl;dr I’m going to move forward with the damn book that’s already written.
Like a lot of my books, it started as fan fic, and I’m so excited about sharing it as an original work – not to mention all the awesome ideas I have for that magical little world and moving forward with it as a series. I really do hope you guys like it, and omg the COVER! The COVER! All my love to Reese Dante for being so patient and wonderful and making this COVER!
That you can’t see yet. But soon. I swear!
Something else that slowed me down from writing new book goodness was completing my short story (tentatively titled “Playing For Keeps”) for the Take A Chance charity anthology. I was aiming for 25k, tapped out at 10.2k (the minimum was 10k), but I’m actually really happy with what I created. It’s short, it’s sexy, and you can totally learn how to make your own dildo.
It’s now with Jennifer Griffin of Marked and Read for editing, and the anthology releases April 23rd! I do hope you guys check it out. It’s for such a good cause, and there are so many AWESOME authors participating. It’s gonna be freakin’ sweet.
So, blah blah blah, all of that is done and editing stuff and wooooo!
I’m going to try and refocus my current efforts on the CHC prequel (Strapped For Cash is what I’m going with at the moment). I have the outline done, I know the ending, and now I just have to write the damn thing. I’m hopeful that real world crap simmers down so my brain will make pretty words, but I will still have THREE books coming out in the next few months!
Four if you count Sucker For Love #4 which has already been accepted by my publisher, and I’m just waiting for the editing to begin. Okay, it’s more like 3.25 since the Take A Chance entry is so short.
New stuff is on the way.
If you’re with me for it all, awesome. If you’re just here for mafia shenanigans, also awesome but please be patient. I’m getting there, I promise! I’m trying so very hard! XD
That’s pretty much it. I’m ignoring the rest of my WIP pile because of how little time I have and how overwhelmed I got before. I must finish at least one damn series before creating any new ones, and Cold Hard Cash is the logical choice.
It’s the closest to being finished, and it was my very first book. It needs its ending. <333
”But Kat! I really need more mafia smut!”
Ah, never fear! You’ll meet someone very special in Strapped For Cash who will satisfy all your bossy type gangster needs, and they will star in their own spinoff series… Which I’m not starting until CHC is done dammit. Hopefully. No! I can do this. I am strong. So very strong. Strong like bear.
Hope you’re all doing wonderfully and staying safe out there! Take care, my lovelies!
