Home 9 News 9 Black Kat News: September 2021

A Homecoming + A Cover Reveal


Hello Friends,

How is September treating you? We’re doing peachy here. Quite literally. Our author’s fruit trees are bent down to the ground, loaded with apples, almonds, peaches, pears, and nectarines. The weather is lovely, the fields are an ocean of gold under clear blue skies. Fall in the Midwest is utterly spectacular.

In celebration, we’re having a homecoming here of sorts, but not the dance type. Our author may be coming home far sooner than she thoughtfrom her day job. It’s not the timing she planned on, and while sales have been encouraging since the release of Playing with Fire, transitioning to living off your art can be a bit nerve wracking.

It also means she gets more time with kitties and us Supers, and more time to write our stories. There are still so many to tell, and we could use your help.

Princess Cleo assisting Dale with the maths. Not her favorite pastime.

If you’ve enjoyed our stories, here are a few ways you can help:

  1. Spread the word– tell a friend, neighbor, relative, co-worker about the Black Kat series! Word of mouth is a powerful thing!
  2. Write a review– Please leave a review wherever you purchased one of our books: Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, Kobo, Smashwords, or one of the other smaller stores we’re in.
  3. Sign up for the ARC team help shape our future books
  4. Forward this newsletter or one of our social media posts to a friend who might be interested.
  5. Ask your library to stock our books. We’re in Overdrive, BorrowBox, and several other programs that sell to libraries all over the world.

Meanwhile, work continues on Black Kat V: Kat-A-Strophic. We’re hoping to have an ARC for our ARC reading list next month. Click here to sign up.

And we are over the moon, literally, with how the cover for Black Kat VI: Star Crossed came out. Kat and I look quite smashing, though she still had to stand on a box due to her vertical challenges. The pre-order is up at most online stores. We’re shooting for a Summer 2022 release (well, Kat is, with her obscenely over-sized golden gun!) Find out more below.
