Blood Clan… all 3 books in ONE!

Hello beautiful readers!!

I have been waiting FOREVER to share this news with you!

And FINALLY after months of planning, cover art revisions, rewriting, formatting problems, and drinking all the wine…

I can officially say (drumroll please…)

THE BLOOD CLAN CHRONICLES is now ONE BOOK!
That’s right, all three novellas have shifted into one full length novel with one hell of a new fang-tastic cover!
Are you ready to see it?
Here it is, another gem created by the amazing Sotia Lazu!

I am so in love with this cover. From Tori’s tattoo, to Bryce’s clan kilt I couldn’t be happier. I can’t wait to hold it! That’s right! The Blood Clan Chronicles will be available in PAPERBACK as well as digital!

And there’s more… as well as being completely revised this version also has a special treat! A sneak peek at A Crown of Flames book one of my new series.

These projects have been a labor of love and I am so happy to finally share all the good news with you guys!

The Blood Clan Chronicles officially releases everywhere August 7, 2015. But you can pre-order the digital version now!

Simply One-Click!

It’s selling at an introductory rate of $1.99, but unlike my vamps, that price will NOT last forever!

Love & naughty nibbles!

Where I’ve been and why

Hello beautiful people!!

*waves*

I know I’ve been quiet lately. Real quiet.

I’m practically nonexistent on twitter. My pinterest boards have fallen to the wayside, and although present on Facebook, I’m not really present. I’m the kid who shows up for class, but prays the teacher doesn’t call on her. Here’s why:

I got a job. Ye olde 9-5

Yuck, right?

Yeah. It’s pretty yuck. It sort of feels like I’m moving backwards in my career, but sometimes life throws us situations we weren’t prepared for. We can sulk, kick, and scream, or we can learn how to turn those lemons into lemonade. But it’s also sort of a neat job because I’m still working as a writer. I’m a ghostwriter. (No, I don’t write about ghosts.) If you don’t know what I mean by “ghostwriter”, here’s a definition. Yeah. It’s a lil weird. But it also means I work from home and make my own schedule which is nice.

So what does this mean for my readers?

It means I had to put my books to the side for awhile so I could work on several books for clients. I can’t get into who I write for or what I’m writing, so please don’t ask. I just wanted you to know that I have never, nor will I ever, give up writing. It just means that (for now) I can’t produce books at the speed I used to.

But because of this, I decided to do something for you, my precious readers.

NEW BOOKS ARE COMING!!!!

No… I don’t have a release date. But when I do release, I will be releasing…

 ALL THREE BOOKS in my NEW SERIES at the SAME TIME!

Good deal? I hope so.

So what am I working on? Well I’ve stepped away from paranormal (after 2 demons and 3 vampire books, I needed a break) and ventured into the fantasy realm. It’s a really cool genre and I love it. Basically it means instead of mentally hanging out with sexy vamps like Damon Salvatore:

I mentally hang out with rugged warriors like Jon Snow:

Not a bad trade.

So here’s the good news… I’ve written books one AND two already. I also have covers for one and two. (SOOO PRETTY!) I outlined three and I’m getting ready to dive into that one as well. All three books are STANDALONE novellas with NO CLIFFHANGERS.

Sound good? GOOD!

But maybe you have a few questions. Some have been addressed to me already via email, twitter, and Facebook, so I’ll answer them now.

So Kat, why not give us what you already have?

Patience. Good things come to those who wait. You see, although the stories are standalone, the characters are interrelated. Unlike The Blood Clan Chronicles where there was a four month lag between the release of books 2 & 3, this series will give you (hopefully) instant satisfaction by having all three available.

What about more Blood Clan Chronicles?

My vamps have been put to the side for now. It is VERY possible that Erin & Kane will get their own story as well as Liv & Kyle. I had a reader ask for more Bryce and Tori and for that, you have given me the highest compliment. Sadly, I don’t foresee any more books about them. (See what I did there? *wink, wink*) I told their story, and gave them the HEA they deserved. Anything else seems like just clinging to them, and putting them in unnecessary danger. (Haven’t they been through enough? Silver chains on Bryce’s neck… my poor, Scotsman!)

Wait! You didn’t know all three books were available? Yup! The trilogy is complete and you can grab it here:

The Blood Clan Chronicles

Fine… but we HAVE to ask, where’s book 3 of The Darkness Saga? Killing Darkness ended on the ultimate cliffhanger!

Yes, it did. But I can honestly say, I have no intention of returning to Darkness before the fall. Wait! Don’t start cursing me out just yet. I have my reasons. Pull up a chair, let me explain. I spent six years writing Killing, and another year working on Taming. That’s seven years of Lucas Starr. The final book will be the end of that story, and I’m not ready to work on it yet. Basically, I’m not emotionally prepared to say goodbye to Lucas, Michael, or Brielle. I told myself I would take a year off and seeing as Killing released on December 5, 2014, that year is not up yet.

Haven’t met Lucas Starr yet? EEK! Don’t let him hear that. What are you waiting for? He is the ULTIMATE bad boy.

You can experience what it feels like to root for the villain!

Check it out! ~~> Taming Darkness

So what can you tell us about your new series? You’ve been rather cryptic on Facebook and Twitter.

I can tell you it’s fantasy. And here’s your enormous clue:

tumblr_mu8rpcG5Wj1rrecxqo2_500

Are you working on anything else once this fantasy is done?

Yes! It’s no secret that I’ve been working on a Snow White retelling. That book is outlined and about 1/3 of the way written. It too has a GORGEOUS cover. I also plan to write more books under the pen name, Karen Anne. My New Adult Contemporary Romance, Death by Social Suicide is a book that is so close to my heart. I have been asked to write spin offs, and I can say now that Kristen will be getting her own story. If you haven’t read Death by Social Suicide you can grab it here:

Death by Social Suicide

So now you’re all caught up. I’m here, at my keyboard working hard, and hoping to release my babies very, very soon.

Love,

The Mother of Dragons.

THE EMBERS OF LIGHT Tammy Farrell

Look what released… TODAY!!! I couldn’t be happier for my friend and fellow author, Tammy Farrell! Book Two of her series, The Dia Chronicles is available NOW!

???????????????????

THE EMBERS OF LIGHT
The Dia Chronicles Book Two
by Tammy Farrell

Genre: Adult Historical Fantasy
Release Date: January 28th, 2015

Blurb:
The descendants of the ancient gods think they’ve found peace, but the time has come when new magic and ancient powers will collide… 

Stripped of his Dia powers and left to rot, Malcolm is a prisoner of Valenia—a sentence he finds worse than death. His thoughts of revenge are the only thing keeping him sane, but when he finally manages to escape, Malcolm discovers that living as a mortal is more dangerous than he ever imagined. After stealing from the wrong man, Malcolm becomes a captive once more, only this time his punishment is one that he won’t soon forget. His only hope of survival is Seren, an enigmatic young girl with golden eyes and a malevolence to match his own. 

When he’s led to Mara and Corbin, the two responsible for his fall from grace, their new faction of Dia is in chaos, infiltrated by an ancient power thought to have been banished forever. This only fuels Malcolm’s ruthless ambitions, but he soon realizes that he too is under attack, a pawn in a centuries old game of power and greed. As new battle lines are drawn, Malcolm finds himself in uncharted waters, forced to choose between helping those he’s vowed to destroy or give in to his lingering desire to settle the score. 

Debts will be paid, lives will be lost, and no Dia will ever be the same.

EXCERPT:

By the time the smell of smoke and roasting meat finally reached Malcolm, and his hole in the ground was completely black, he knew the time was drawing near. The sound of laughter and flutes from above stoked the fires of determination within him, while the repetitive drumbeat counted down the minutes.
His mind wandered as he stared sullenly at the walls of black earth. He clutched his mangled hand to his chest, far too weary for anger. He was humiliated. Over and over again he’d been disgraced, robbed, laughed at. The hardest truth to face was that there still might be more degradation to come. He had wanted everything and succeeded at nothing. Hope was now but a whisper in the past, still carried on the winds, but too distant to hear.
Malcolm pressed his head against the soft earth. He had nothing left to lose and nothing left to love. Even his own mother had become an unseen shadow, abandoning him in his time of need. She was useless to him, as she always had been, and he vowed that if she ever showed herself to him again, he would speak any word that might pierce a mother’s soul.
