Cover Reveal and Preorder LIVE!

Booyah! Here is the GORGEOUS cover for my upcoming release, Kraken My Heart! It’s #2 in my Sucker For Love Mystery Series, and it’s available for preorder now! I hope you guys check out the blurb below and don’t forget – it comes out May 18th, 2021!

~*~

It’s just Ted’s luck that he meets the love of his life while covered in the blood of a murder victim.

Funeral worker Ted Sturm has a foul mouth, a big heart, and a knack for communicating with the dead. Unfortunately the dead don’t make very good friends, and Ted’s only living pal, his roommate, just rescued a strange cat who’s determined to make his life even more miserable.  This cat is more than he seems, and soon Ted finds himself in an alternate dimension… and on top of a dead body.

When Ted is accused of murder, his only ally in a strange world full of powerful magical beings calling for his head is King Grell, a sarcastic, randy, catlike immortal with impressive abilities… and anatomy. The two soon find themselves at the center of a cosmic conspiracy and surrounded by dangerous enemies. But with Ted’s special skills and Grell’s magic, they have a chance to get to the bottom of the mystery and save Ted. There’s just one problem: Ted’s got to resist Grell’s aggressive advances… and he isn’t sure he wants to.

I literally have a book coming out every month for the next three months, and I am so EXCITED. I don’t think this will happen very often so I am going to enjoy the whirlwind of crazy while I can. This is really amazing. The first is Wishes for Rohi, releasing on March 26th! It’s available for preorder now! Like, RIGHT NOW! Go check it out! Next will be my short story “Playing For Keeps”, releasing as part of the Taking A Chance charity anthology April 23rd. I don’t have a preorder link yet, but I will post it as soon as I do. And last but certainly not least, Kraken My Heart comes out May 18th! No preorder link for that one yet either, but hopefully soon!

My current goal is to finish Strapped for Cash and possibly maybe hopefully have it release in June to keep up this awesome momentum. Like, that would be just amazing, but I’m trying to remain calm and not burn myself out again. I mentioned this in my last writing blog, but I am trying to complete at least one darn series before moving to a new one. Cold Hard Cash is the logical choice having been my very first, and I want Jimmy and Cold to have their final happily ever after. I am determined to complete the CHC series before the end of the year.

I will also be working on my Sucker For Love Mysteries, and I’m going to try and start outlining #5 when I finish the rough draft of Strapped for Cash. After that, I really don’t know what the hell I’m going to do. I have one more finished manuscript that is technically ready for editing and publication, Love Included, Heart Not Required. Because this is a complete rough draft, this may be next after CHC/SFL if for no other reason that it’s done. It’s been floating around my future project pile for a long time, and it feels silly to wait.

Speaking of my endless future project pile, heh, you may notice that Last One to Let You Down #2 is gone. I know a lot of you really loved Cypress and Tom, but I am not going to continue their story. It took a lot to write something so personal, and I knew from the beginning that some readers would be put off by the level of detail I wanted to include. I thought I was fully prepared for the criticism, and I was wrong. I will always be proud of that story, but that’s it. I might write some short stories or some other bonus content for them in the future, but I am not going to write another book.

On a brighter note, I’ve been having a lot of fun filling my new Patreon with all sorts of exclusive and sexy content. The first fifteen chapters of the Strapped for Cash WIP are posted there for your reading pleasure, and I even started uploading some of my old smutty fan fiction. I don’t write fic these days, but I thought it might be fun to share some of it. I wrote for a lot of different fandoms, including The Flash, Gotham, Dragon Age, and more. I’ll also begin posting some of the Nautilus Than Perfect WIP this month, and I may work on a little bonus story for Cypress and Tom. This is still very new for me, and I honestly have no idea what else to put on there, so we’ll just see what happens!

I’m really excited to share all of my new releases with you guys, and I hope you guys enjoy them! I hope you check out my new Patreon for even more awesome goodies and keep your eyes peeled for new preorder links! Also, if you want any goodies from my Redbubble Store, now is the time! I’m probably going to be shutting it down over the next few months, so grab that awesome Maury’s Pawn Shop stuff while you can.

Stay safe and healthy out there!

~*~

Ashley Mostrich gets one heck of a birthday surprise when the guy he brought home for the night turns out to be the twin brother of the prince he didn’t know he was supposed to marry. Unbeknownst to Ashley, his grandpa made a deal with a jinn and promised him off to the royal family before he was even born.

Zamir is the heir to the mystical kingdom of Palmyra and promises he will love Ashley in time, while his younger brother, Zaire, is trying to get into Ashley ‘s bed again. Ashley wants to be a faithful fiancé to Zamir, but he cannot deny the powerful chemistry he feels with Zaire. Additional jealousy flares when Ashley discovers that Zamir’s heart already belongs to another, but the pressure for the wedding is on because the future of the Palmyran people hinges on a royal union magically producing an heir.

Once Ashley realizes that Zaire’s feelings for him might be more than physical, he finds himself falling in love with the wrong brother and risking the fate of the entire kingdom. It’ll take a miracle—or one very powerful wish—for everyone to have a happy ending.

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.

Whatever.

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.

Anyway.

Hope you’re all doing wonderfully and staying safe out there! Take care, my lovelies!

Acsquidentally In Love makes Best of 2020 TWICE!

I’m beyond honored and humbled that Acsquidentally In Love made not one but TWO Best of 2020 lists! Agh! I am just so very excited and flattered and happy and – wow – proud. So very proud. Anabela M of Love Bytes Reviews said it was “full of hilarious banter, outrageous flirting and steamy moments“, and you can read all about her listing HERE! Elaine White of Divine Magazine said it was “a unique take on tentacle romance” with “a dash of romance, mystery and suspicion“, and her full post is HERE! <333

Funny thing about being an author: it makes you into a big ol’ fat liar.

Looking at my last update, you’d think I had a great plan for 2021, lots of new projects to work on, and bunches of shiny books coming out soon. I dared to ask what could wrong with having such a crazy lineup, and ohhh, look that. Lots went wrong. Between my health and the drain of being an essential worker, all of those wonderful plans are now in the commode.

Oops.

I’ve had to scrap everything I was hoping to do, and now I’m only working on the edits for my Sucker For Love series while writing the rough draft of Strapped For Cash, the CHC prequel. I wanted to write so many other things (gods, genies, etc), but I sort of overwhelmed myself with too many ideas and not nearly enough time to do them. So, sadly, I’ve had to drop everything except for the aforementioned projects.

My new plan for 2021 is pretty much to survive 2021. I’ll write as much as I can, but it’s not going to be nearly the same volume I was able to produce before. Once I finish Strapped For Cash, I’ll likely move on to the final book of the CHC series while editing more Sucker For Love stuff. I’m not going to start or work on anything else until all of this is done. I simply don’t have enough time now.

I do have an anthology that I signed up for: Take A Chance. It’s a charity anthology that will benefit the AIDS Healthcare Foundation releasing April 23rd, 2021. My contribution will be a short story between 10k-25k, and my rough draft is due in early March. I already have a pretty good idea of what I’m doing (5kish already written), and I still plan to participate for such a great cause.

That’s pretty much it for now! Ulgh. The new year is not being kind to me so far, but I’m doing my best to be seen and not viewed. I sincerely hope everyone else is having a kickass 2021 and staying safe.
