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.

image

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.

58047161

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.

Oops! Did I just slip? I meant, Kat! KAT!!! 😉

If you haven’t read In Stone yet by the cool kick-ass lovely Louise D. Gornall you are missing out! I’ll tell you a bit about the book in a minute, but first meet our fabulous author Louise:Louise

Film nerd. Identical twin. Junk food enthusiast. Rumored pink Power Ranger. Zombie apocalypse 2012 survivor, and avid collector of book boyfriends.

And now for this read that made me laugh, tear up and flip those pages!!

Book blurb:

 

Beau Bailey is suffering from a post-break-up meltdown when she
happens across a knife in her local park and takes it home. Less than a week later, the new boy in school has her trapped in an alley; he’s sprouted horns and is going to kill Beau unless she hands over the knife.

Until Eighteenth-century gargoyle, Jack, shows up to save her.

Jack has woken from a century-long slumber to tell Beau that she’s unwittingly been drafted into a power struggle between two
immortal races: Demons and Gargoyles. The knife is the only one in existence capable of killing immortals and they’ll tear the world apart to get it back. To draw the warring immortals away from her home, Beau goes with Jack in search of the mind-bending realm known as the Underworld, a place where they’ll hopefully be able to destroy the knife and prevent all hell from breaking loose. That is, provided they can outrun the demons chasing them.

The Zombie Un-cookbook: Recipes of the Undead by T.A. Brock

Hi all I have an AMAZING guest post for you today! T.A. Brock author of the fantastic YA Paranormal Romance FATAL has given us some selections from the Zombie cookbook!

Read on to discover that there’s more than brains on the menu for these guys!

Beloved Recipes From A Zombie Un-cook Book

Image

Hi all! *waves* I’m so excited to be guest posting today, and I’ve got something super fun to share with you. As some of you might already know, my zombies are not your typical brain-eating, skin-ripping, stank-rotting fleshbags. Nope. They. Is. Civilized. Most of them anyway. Now don’t get me wrong, my dude, Grayson, has been known to rip into a spare rib or two with his bare hands—relax, he gets them from the market just like everyone else—but for the most part, they eat their flesh with a knife and fork. From a plate. Or even a diamond-crusted platter.

Now might be a good time to mention that the zombie diet consists of RAW meat and excessive amounts of water ONLY. They cannot eat vegetables. Lucky? Maybe. Whatever. My point is, unless you’re wearing Lady Gaga’s meat dress, there’s a 97% chance they WON’T want to eat you. If you ARE wearing Lady Gaga’s meat dress… then, well, I don’t know. Run, maybe?

Hmm’kay.

Are you ready for the good stuff? Today you get a peek into the Patch family un-cook book. These recipes have been passed down through generations of Risers. Raina (our main character, Grayson’s, older sister) personally contributed many that would become some of his favorites! So, without further ado…

Oh, beeteedubs, do NOT attempt these recipes unless you are of the risen dead persuasion. Trust me on that.

*Excerpts from the Patch Family Un-cook Book

Image

Bacon and Eggs (Z style)

4 eggs, however you like them (scrambled or whole, but make sure they aren’t cooked!)

6 strips of center-cut bacon

Arrange the strips of bacon on a plate in a decorative pattern. Remember, you eat with your eyes first so make it look pretty. Try a lattice pattern or twist the bacon into rosettes. Whatever suits your fancy. Crack the eggs over the bacon design (if using whole) or pour over (if scrambled). Serves two.

Image

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Fingers

1 lb. Boneless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into strips

1/2 lb. Smoked bacon

Toothpicks

Cut each bacon strip in half. Wrap bacon around strips of chicken and secure with toothpicks. Easiest recipe EVER!

Image

Hearty Meatballs

1 lb. ground beef

1lb. ground pork

1 lb. ground veal

2 eggs

1/4 cup of very cold water

In a large mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together until well incorporated. Don’t be afraid to get in there with your hands (just don’t lick your fingers!). Roll into balls that are approximately one inch in diameter. Serve family style, on a platter.

Image

Image

Carpaccio or Tartare

1 lb. your choice of meat (Ahi tuna, beef tenderloin, lamb, and kobe are great options)

For carpaccio: Cut meat into paper thin strips. Layer strips artfully on your serving plate. Remember to be creative in your design. Finish with a drizzle of ice water.

For tartare: Dice meat into very small pieces.  In a mixing bowl, toss the meat with 2 Tbs. ice water. Using a two inch ring mold, press meat mixture onto serving plate. Carefully remove the mold. Garnish with mint leaves. IMPORTANT: Do not eat the mint no matter how inviting the scent might be. It is toxic if ingested.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this insightful little journey into the FATAL world! Thanks for having me! And um, here’s a paper sack, for those of you who are feeling a bit queasy. *shuffles away, sheepishly*

Fatal_FRONT  TABrock

BLURB:

Grayson Patch hasn’t been human since he was seventeen years old… and that was nineteen years ago. When he rose from the dead, he had no memory of his former life. Grayson desperately wants to recapture his lost humanity. And he’s been told that there is one person in this world who can save him from his current fate before he begins to decompose. One person, whose life must be sacrificed for his.

Cori Abbott has a million things to worry about. She’s the new girl in a school that’s a fraction the size of her old one. Her antisocial tendencies are crippling her ability to make new friends. And then there’s the recent, sudden death of her father, the only man who ever understood her. The last thing Cori wants is the attention of a strange, withdrawn, and consistently angry guy who seems to hate her for no apparent reason. A guy she can’t stop thinking about.

Will Cori break through Grayson’s cold exterior and find the human within, the boy who can love and understand her like no other? Will Grayson sacrifice Cori to rid himself of his undead curse, even if it means losing her forever?
