Confession time: I don’t actually whip through projects as fast as some people seem to think. More than once I’ve gotten the question ‘how do you get so much done?’ I suppose for people watching me, it might be a logical question. For me, standing amid the chaos I like to call my life, I’m just like ‘what things? I’m getting things done?’
Any poets here? *halfway raises hand* I don’t really know anything about poetry. But I enjoy writing free verse.
And apparently April is poetry month where one writes one poem a day. So I decided to try, because why not? It’s been a challenge but it’s also fun. And I find myself writing all these little random things I wouldn’t have taken the time for otherwise.
A banished prince tries to avert a war he helped to cause, and in the process ends up as bodyguard to the enemy king.
Rebel Heir. In one sentence.
Yes, I’m proud of the hook. I feel like I have a right to be.

Healer’s Bane is out and has been released in paperback as well as ebook!
So this was supposed to go out Friday. It didn’t, because of reasons.
Those reasons mainly involving me not planning my time well and running things too close to the deadline.
But… I have a short story for you all!
For some time I’ve been considering creating a new lead magnet for my newsletter. Basically, something free you get when you sign up. And this is it!
If you are signed up to my newsletter, you’ll have received an email with this short story earlier this morning. Otherwise, you can sign up here to claim your own copy!
As hard as it is for my focused, goal-oriented mind to sometimes comprehend, life is about more than writing.
It’s even about more than marketing, or readers, or that next book I finish reading myself.
I’ve talked about it enough the past month.
In fact, I’ve talked about hardly anything else.
Shadowkeeper is here, peoples!!!
Death can die as easily as any other man.
Cedra has kept her sister safe for years. None of that changes just because Pethra got herself kidnapped by Death himself.
Claiming the questionable aid of Death’s weary older brother, the Shadowkeeper, Cedra forces her way through mist and shadows in pursuit of her hapless sister. But Death wants much more than he has revealed.
A wish that will splinter her and Pethra’s world no matter what she chooses: death, or a chain.
Loosely inspired by the stories of Hades and Persephone and Castor and Pollux, Shadowkeeper will sweep you into a world of wavering mists, shadowy passages, and the love of two siblings fastening them with ties stronger than Death himself.
Also, guys. I’m trying to do something here, and since I can’t clone myself 100 times I need your help. I want to sell 100 copies of Shadowkeeper today and tomorrow.
It seems like a huge goal, but I think it’s doable. Last time I tried to sell 50 and got 30+. But last time I was selling the book for three times the price (a whopping $2.99. Imagine that. *evil laugh*). This time it’s a mere dollar which is like… less than you’d spend for nearly any snack.
The reason for this goal? If enough of you buy the book in a short enough time it goes up in Amazon algorithms. If it goes up, other people see it who don’t know about me and get it. I get to claim readers and spread my base of minions. And it goes from there.
So, if you want to help me get up to 100 sales in the first 48 hours, click here! Then feel free to share this article with those of your friends who you think would be interested in a story about Death and sibling love, mingled with powers and hints of mythology.
One week until launch date! And today I have a bunch of random fun ‘somethings’ about Shadowkeeper!
I always swore I’d never do it.
But I did.
I can’t say I’m sorry, even though I’ll probably never do it again.
I wrote a story without an outline.
Yes, I’ve had cover reveals before. But this is my absolute favorite cover that I’ve shared with you all to date. *grins* Kate really outdid herself this time.
