Black Kat News: Merry Catmas!
Season’s greetings, friends! Hugh here. I do hope this letter finds you well and still in one piece as we reach the finish line of 2020 (thank heavens!) What a year. It’s been like Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride times a thousand.
On a lighter note, our kittens are finally getting along. It was touch and go for a while, as the ninja kitties battled it out, but if they can learn to live together in peace, so can the rest of us. Merry Catmas, everyone!
(We’re dreading what they do to the tree!)
While the cats take over the safe houses (and the author’s favorite writing chair) we are wrapping up a few things and planning even bigger ones for 2021:
- God Save the Queen: The update is almost ready and we think you’ll love it. It’s tighter, faster-paced, and there are a few fun surprises in store. Look for an email in the next week or two with links and info.
- Playing with Fire is on now on pre-order at all online stores. Release date is set for April Fool’s Day 2021. It may be out sooner, but we built in extra time due to the crazy nature of current events. More info below.
- Webstore: We are currently building a store into our website. It’s not ready for showtime yet. There’s still some tweaking and testing to do. Next year, we plan to have eBooks, signed paperbacks, audio, and swag available there.
- Kobo Sale: Kat & Mouse and God Save the Queen are currently in the December BOGO sale in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
PLUS: We’ve got some great freebies in the newsletter today. Plenty of tales to keep you busy and distracted from the real world. And who doesn’t want that? Read on for more!

UF THRILLER: WINTER’S RECKONING
UF COMEDY: ROUTE 666
Route 66. Two sisters, one hell of a road trip.
It was supposed to be a reunion celebration, two Navy Brat sisters separated by the tragedy that had led to them both becoming Gold Star widows at the same time now together again and having some well-deserved fun.
Step 1: Buying the right car for the trip- a classic. One restoration later and their bags packed, they were ready to rock-n-roll their way down the historic Route in a ’66 T-bird convertible.
Step two: Visiting both their father and brother and let them know about their trip. That meant a detour through the Southern states, but hey, it was a road trip! Go see them, stop at some roadside attractions along the way, and then hit the closest end of the Route and get their party properly started. More road trip, more adventure!
Boy, was there ever, both off the route and on it!
FREE UF: SKALD’S HOLLOW
When his father kidnaps a dwarf army, Gustav Lausch tries to find out why. Can he escape the evil empire his father, Stefan, is building?
Set in a magical kingdom, Skald’s Hollow shows Stefan Lausch purchasing a mountain. Stefan tells Gustav he wants to spend quality time by going on a hunt to find dragon bones, wolves, and nightshades. He doesn’t tell him that the safari is really an excuse to kidnap mountain soldiers and execute Nazi-like experiments on them.
To distance himself from his father’s crime empire, Gustav built a million-dollar car company and got married to an exiled princess to start a new family with less blood on its hands. Now, Gustav must struggle to prove he can protect himself from his Goliath-like father and the evil he exhibits.
Skald’s Hollow is the prequel to the Chronicles of Alder’s urban contemporary fantasy series.
