Home 9 Newsletter 9 Black Kat News: April 2020

The Black Kat Happs

Hello, lovelies. Hugh Harrison here.

News has reached me about bizarre happenings on Earth. People hoarding toilet paper and hand sanitizer, trying to avoid the plague while hunkering down in their homes. Drive-in churches, drive-in restaurants, drive-in everything. But where are the flying cars?

When I used to dream about what 2020 would be like, that’s what I imagined, something from The Jetsons, not Bill Gates running around scaring people with syringes. That chap still can’t keep viruses off his blasted computers, and he’s been at it for decades. Can’t he work on the flying cars instead?

In the midst of all the madness, I sincerely hope this newletter finds you happy, healthy, and well. Laughter is the best medicine in times of trouble, and it’s my aim to bring you more quite soon. A little escape can be good (says the escape artist.)

And don’t forget to:

Keep Calm and Super On!

Speaking of Supers, Jacob and our other healers are busy keeping Supers and humans as healthy as possible. Kat is off hunting down more Rogues. Apparently they’re stirring up trouble again. As if everyone didn’t have enough to deal with already!

As for me, I’m still stuck on another planet, waiting for Dale to finish his cumbersome calculations so we can head home.

Meanwhile, our author, Kim, is homebound and busy schooling children, one of which has special needs. This has slowed down work on the series significantly, but we press onward and upward. Stiff upper lip and all! The re-edit of Unlucky Charm is almost done and it’s turning out very well. We’ll send out a special newsletter with a free download link when it’s finished.

Don’t forget that you can also pick up a review copy of our other Black Kat books on Story Origin:

Part 1 of Black Kat 4: Playing with Fire, is available for anyone who joins our ARC list. Response so far has been very good. Thank you to everyone who has read and sent in their comments! Part 2 should be done shortly.

    COMING SOON: UNLUCKY CHARM, UPDATED

    Black Kat I: Unlucky Charm

    It’s hard to believe the Unlucky Charm was published 4 years ago. We’ve learned a lot about writing and publishing since then, so we wanted to update the first few books & make them as SUPER as possible. 

    We’re very close to having Unlucky Charm finished. Improvements include: 

    • Updated cover
    • Updated formatting
    • Reorganized scenes for better story flow 
    • Cut/condensed some scenes and added new ones. (10,000 more words)
    • Expansion of Kat’s storyline and scenes = more badass bounty hunting!
    • More showing, less telling
    • Tighter prose
    • A few fun, new juicy details included, along with a new character that snuck into the series… 

    Stay Tuned! We will be giving this away FREE to all subscribers and sending out a special email! It will also be rolled out as an update to all stores. Print versions will be updated as well.
