My dear friend Patricia is releasing the final book in her Path of Angels series today! Take a look!

GabrielPoACover

The end is in sight.

To stop Uriel from freeing Lucifer, Gabriel and his brothers must fall and go to Hell. It is a sacrifice Gabriel is not entirely ready to make. Will he fight alongside his brothers or forge his own path? There is only one choice.

Alexander doesn’t want to help Uriel nor does he trust him, but the angel has promised him a better life. He swore to protect Charlie, and he’ll do whatever it takes. When he meets the archangels and learns the depth of Uriel’s lies, he understands the true meaning of sacrifice. If there’s any hope of stopping Lucifer from being freed, Alexander, Charlie, Zephyr and Lake will have to get to Hell and help Gabriel and his brothers in the fight against Uriel.

The path is finally ending, but the price may be too high.

What’s in a name?

Gabriel

Angelic Messenger

Gabriel, an archangel and one of the two highest ranking angels in Judeo-Christian and Islamic lore. Her name means “strength of God”. She is a unique archangel in the sense that it is almost certain she is the only female angel in the higher echelons, although some believe there are no female angels. Gabriel fosters joy, truth, justice and love. She grants wisdom in interpreting our dreams and visions.

Well, in Path of Angels Gabe is a guy and would probably be grumpy to read this. He is all about justice

Overall, I’m pretty happy with my progress so far. But the month is drawing to a close and I need to find a time turner stat! Anyone? Please?

Time has such a horrible way of running out lol

How is everyone else doing?

Counting down…

Originally published at K.T. Hanna. You can comment here or there.

Two weeks.

Fourteen days.

336 hours.

20,160 minutes…

You get the idea

Even though I’ve always liked fortnight better.

Anyway! In less than that up there – Chameleon will be out there.

In the world.

Available for people to love – and for people to hate.

And that’s just it, isn’t it?

When you write your book, you love it. You want others to love it too. And when it gets out there – into the big wide world, you no longer have any control over that. Which is okay, even while it’s not. Some people might love it, other’s might think it’s okay, and others will hate it.

And that’s just how the world works.

Hey, I despise olives. My daughter loves them. And now I feel better.

So, I’m gearing up for that more than anything else.

All the nerves. I may be a little scared.

Scared

Meet Sammy – our new Corgi pup!

Originally published at K.T. Hanna. You can comment here or there.

We got a nice surprise last week – unexpected, but ultimately nice. My father-in-law arranged for us to get a new Corgi puppy.

On Sunday we all piled into the car, and drove for an hour to go and get him.

Meet Sammy! The new addition to our family.

Kami pup 1

He is this adorable little thing. His personality is sweet and eager and we just adore him. He’s setting line quite nicely.

He gets on well with Kira, Kami loves him, but Winchester is very unsure of him. I think it’ll take Kitty a while longer to adapt to our new addition, but that’s ok.

This means a few sleepless weeks for me – but hey, I’m up to a challenge, right? Now I just need to get ready for release, finish edits on book two, start organizing for book two’s launch, finish my pitchwars bio, read all my pitchwars entries, do all my intern and editing work, and crate train the new puppy…

What an exciting (read: exhausting) few months this will be. I got this!

 

Edits, Giveaways, and a Blurb!

Originally published at K.T. Hanna. You can comment here or there.

The life of a writer might sound dull to some people. You know, those who don’t write. You get your idea, go through your process to turn it into a draft, let it sit for a while, edit it – then we send it off to betas and cps, get it back, edit it – might have a second round of readers and have to edit it again… and then polish it, proof it…

Then you go through it all again.

And you know what – we can’t help it, because it’s a part of us, and it’s worth it.

Extra worth it especially when a writer you really admire gives you a blurb for your book!

“Wow! A fast-paced, science fiction delight with fabulous action, a seamless world, and the most unique characters I’ve read in a long time.” — Elana Johnson, author of the Possession novels.

I can’t even explain how happy this makes me! It also really helped give that extra boost I needed to go through Chameleon for the 3984029th (final) time.

I just got done with my final proof of Chameleon (and I swear if it has typos, I’m going scream, but I’m going cross-eyed from trying to find them). But wait there’s more! I now have to edit book 2! Yes, you read that right. Book 2 – Hybrid, is due to release in November, so I’m in full swing for those edits too.

Add to that, I have my preorder giveaway going on. And I’ve just started a two week giveaway on Goodreads with a chance to win one of two signed paperbacks.

So my June actually turned out about 75% complete, which I consider quite amazing. I had my parents visiting and there were just some things that couldn’t be done, because 8700 miles is a hell of a way to travel and never see your daughter. Plus, I liked spending evenings with them. So, you know, worth it all round.

I have a lot to do in July, but quite a bit of it has already been completed.

I’m going to repeat it. Because I need to. And sometimes I think we ALL need to.

Putting yourself out there is exhausting – and that’s okay.

You might ask, what do you mean by putting yourself out there?

I’m glad you asked, because I mean a lot of things.

Putting yourself out there in any form that allows people to see private parts of you, parts you might otherwise keep to yourself – can be truly draining. Especially in this age of social media with the photo craze at our fingertips, and the documentation of everything for posterity…

Showing your face here and there, pictures of coffee mugs, of your dogs and cats, and maybe even that fly on the wall – right down to in depth conversations of politics, identity, and human rights that drag you in and make you want to scream at some of the idiocy in the human race.

All of this can be downright overwhelming.

And it’s perfectly okay to feel that way.

Then, as an artist of any sort (be it music, writing, or art), there’s that extra step. Even just the act of showing a single person your work can be excruciating. But if you show a glimpse of your work to the online world, it’s like standing naked in front of a two way mirror. They can see every imperfection, everything that bleeds out of your pores, all of these tiny creative sparks that make up your person. You rarely see the appreciation, but the derisive snorts are always audible. And so it chips away at us.

When others can see your work – they can tear it apart.

But not to show someone defeats the purpose of creating it. You want to share your joy in your art. You want people to love your characters, your art, your music.

At the same time, it’s like baring your soul. And we do it. Over, and over, and over.

If you don’t put yourself out there, you can’t reap the rewards. But you can stay safe in the comfy little bubble, mostly happy with your life, right?

True, but what sort of life is that. I guess that’s why we do it, isn’t it? We put ourselves through the passionate cycle of laboring away at a project we love, tentatively putting it out there with the constant fear of rejection in our hearts, and then dusting ourselves back off and trying again until we get that moment. That one moment. The one just for us that makes everything worth it.

So if you’re not there yet, don’t give up. If you haven’t had your moment yet, then keep at it. Dust off those projects, eye them with determination, and attack the crap out of them. Because at the end of the day putting yourself out there can be exhilarating.

And it’s okay if that’s exhausting too.

regret nothing

Today is release day for my friend Eliza Madison’s Fast, Fresh, and Hot! It’s the first in her Men at Work Novella series. And when I say first – I mean she has more yummy goodness releasing in short order after this. You should buy this now so you have time to recover before the next one hits!

Goodreads WriteUp!

Fantasy guys were supposed to remain anonymous. They were supposed to be nothing more than pretty faces. I didn’t have time for real.Even though she’s ordered 4 pizzas this week, Becca Dahl’s interested less in spicy sausage and more in the smoking eye candy provided by her hot delivery guy, Tariq. It’s not supposed to amount to anything, but when he proposes a co-ed study break, the sex is hotter than she expected. They both want it to last more than one night, but Becca doesn’t have time for a relationship. She’s got to finish grad school with honors if she’s ever going to earn her dad’s praise. But when Tariq’s kisses light her up brighter than the Bat Signal, she can’t help but say yes to another date.As they spend more time together out of bed, Becca starts to see the man behind the pizza box. They find a connection deeper than their mutual love of comic books and nerdy movie quotes. Tariq shares pieces of himself and he sees through Becca’s façade to the pain she’s kept hidden for years. Her resolve to hold him at arm’s length starts crumbling. But when Tariq shows up at her graduation, setting off her overbearing father, can he convince her that when it comes to a relationship, they’ve got what it takes to deliver?</p>

Disclaimer: Fast, Fresh and Hot delivers chocolate that melts on your hand, not in your mouth, Batman tattoos, angry shower sex, 80s movie references, and a lifetime supply of sexy pizza boy. And lots of steamy, delicious sex.
