May Wrap-Up!

May was kind of epic. BREAKER, my second novel (and first one in 2 years!) came out this month, and went into a second printing within a week! Not only that, but it also has a fantastic new book trailer - check it out!




I also went on a writing retreat to Scotland along with 10 other authors, who were all amazing and such fun to spend a week with. As well as lots of writing (of course!) we did a bit of sightseeing around Inverness, and saw Cawdor Castle -- as featured in Macbeth:

It was great fun hanging out with everyone there - shout-out to (in descending staircase order) Emma Jackson, Fox Benwell, Marieke Nijkamp, Dawn Kurtagich, Simon Clark, Jenn Faughnan, me!, Cecilia Vinesse, David Purse, Tatum Flynn & Ronni Davis Selzer!

Dawn Kurtagich masterminded the whole thing, and look where we stayed - this place is just begging to be a setting for a spooky novel, right?


Reading-wise, I didn't finish as many books this month as I have in previous months, but the ones I read were truly, truly stellar.


Continuing my sci-fi binge, I read CHASING THE STARS by Malorie Blackman, which is a reimagining of Othello in space (and absolutely gripping!) and THESE BROKEN STARS by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, which I'd been meaning to read for absolutely ages because I heard so many people raving over it. It was also A++.

Stepping into contemp thriller territory as part of my continuing commitment to read more UKYA, I read -- or actually inhaled -- Sarah Pinborough's 13 MINUTES. It's actually kind of scary how recognisable the characters were to me from my own high school days (scary because they're all a wee bit terrifying, if not downright sociopathic).

I saved my fave for last, though, because I got to read an advance copy of SEVEN DAYS OF YOU by Cecilia Vinesse (thank you, Cece!!) while I was away in Scotland. This is the story of Sophia in the week before she is due to move to the US from her home in Japan, and Jamie - the boy who shredded her feelings before he left two years ago -- shows up a week too soon for Sophia to avoid seeing him. Intense and romantic, this is one to fight for at the bookshop when it comes out in March. I still catch myself sighing "Oh, Jamie..." at random intervals.

I'm halfway through 3 other novels right now, so next month's reading rundown should be quite a long one -- especially with the great weather we're having at the moment, which basically requires me to read in the garden.

Hope your May was a blast!

It's here! BREAKER is on the loose...

That's right, I forgot to post this yesterday on my actual publication day, because I'm fly like that. But if you were waiting for BREAKER to hit the shops, consider them hit!

Running Press is giving away 8 copies this week on Goodreads (US only) - enter here.

I really hope you'll enjoy my new thriller about murders taking place in a gothic boarding school, and a doomed romance between the son of a serial killer and the daughter of his dad's last victim. If you read it, please consider leaving a review on Goodreads, Amazon, or wherever you like (especially if you liked it!) - early reviews help a lot with getting a book seen by more readers. They're also cool.


If you were wondering where you could buy a copy online, here are some handy links:

Amazon UK
Amazon US
Barnes & Noble
Book Depository
Books-A-Million
Indiebound
Powells
Waterstones

And now I return to my dark cave of secrets to work on the next creepy book...

April Wrap-Up!

Hello! April has skipped past like a schoolgirl with pigtails, and I have some fun stuff to tell you about.

On the writing front, BREAKER (which comes out 24th May - EEEEEEP!) has been getting some great reviews from the trade reviewers. So far Kirkus, School Library Journal, and Booklist have all said very cool things about my killery thrillery book. Check 'em out:
"Spine-chilling and splendidly gory, with a genre-perfect stormy night denouement."—Kirkus Reviews
"Packed full of suspense, red herrings, and creepy taxidermy, this is an intriguing murder mystery and a compelling look at the ties that bind."—Booklist
"Fans of YA thrillers will be hooked from the first page. . . . A standout thriller with a splash of romance."—School Library Journal

Also, one of my all-time favourite authors, CJ Skuse (Pretty Bad Things, Rockoholic, Dead Romantic, Monster) read BREAKER and tweeted this, which pretty much made my year:

As far as my new, secret, not-yet-book-shaped writing projects go, I finished revising the manuscript I started at Christmas, and sent it off to readers. Keeping my fingers crossed I haven't wandered off the writing path and forgotten how to string words together without realising. (Maybe? Does this blog post even make sense? Do they ever?) Now I'm trying to distract myself from waiting for the final reader's verdict, which means I've started writing something new. This one has been simmering in my brain space for over a year, so hopefully it has matured enough to spill out onto the page without too much angst (on my part, at least - my characters will undoubtedly suffer much, much angst.)

I also worked on a fun BREAKER-related project with author Dawn Kurtagich (The Dead House, The Creeper Man), which involved sending my younger brother and sister up onto a roof. More on that soon ;-)

April was a pretty good reading month. I managed to finish 9 books, and these are they:


I might also have discovered some nifty image-faffing apps this month. Just maybe.

The MGs I read were the wonderfully witty HELL'S BELLES by Tatum Flynn (book 2 of THE D'EVIL DIARIES), and SCARLET & IVY: THE LOST TWIN, a delightful mystery by Sophie Cleverly.

I also read 2 Contemporary YAs, which were PIECES OF YOU AND ME by the always-amazing Erin Fletcher (whom I interviewed on her recent release), and KINDRED SPIRITS, a novella by Rainbow Rowell.

There was also YA Fantasy which I've been dying to read for ages, and that was REBEL OF THE SANDS by Alwyn Hamilton - I absolutely LOVED it!

Which brought me to my long-awaited Science Fiction binge: THE TAKING and THE REPLACED by Kimberly Derting; FAIR COIN by E C Myers (I got this audiobook because it was narrated by Macleod Andrews, who is probably my favourite audiobook narrator); and THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS (is it SF or horror? Not sure, but I've been meaning to read it for a while.)

I'm going to carry on with bingeing SF this coming month, as well as catching up on UKYA reads (I intended to focus on regional UKYA in April, but that didn't quite pan out...) BUT I was especially lucky to win a copy of Ruth Morgan's ALIEN RAIN in a Goodreads giveaway, so that's zooming right to the top of my TBR!

Finally, I was thrilled to help reveal the cover for my author-buddy Ian Hiatt's debut YA novel, DEATH OF AN ASSASSIN, which comes out in June. Check out the post here

Coming up in May, I will be holding one last BREAKER giveaway in the run-up to publication (AHHH!) which will include an annotated ARC, heart-BREAKER socks, and a brass knuckles pendant and bookmark... More details to follow. 

I'll end by sharing a cool song I've been listening to a fair bit recently:

Cover Reveal! DEATH OF AN ASSASSIN by Ian Hiatt



I'm so excited to be able to share my author buddy Ian Hiatt's cover for his debut novel, DEATH OF AN ASSASSIN! It comes out on 16th June, and it sounds amazing - I can't wait to read it. Here's the blurb:

Technically, Layla hasn't killed anyone. Ask the witnesses. It was a misstep here, a trip-and-fall there—accidents happen.
And Layla is paid very well to ensure that they do.
Her mother once traced their lineage back to ancient times. Go flip through The Odyssey. Some great-great-great grandmother is in there beckoning sailors to rocky deaths. For eons her kind has made it their business to bring hapless men to quick and messy ends. Layla can't help it that Saint Roch City has job listings for someone who can cause blameless death. You go where the work is.
When the most difficult hit of her career goes sideways, Layla finds out that what she's been told about her own history may not be so accurate. And there is no forgiveness in the business of assassinations. When you're paid to kill someone, there better be a dead body. 
Either the mark's—or yours.

Pre-order from Amazon (US)
Pre-order from Amazon (UK)

Without further ado, check out the awesome cover...





Isn't it gorgeous??

Ian Hiatt is the crazy guy who lives on your block. You know the one that all the neighborhood kids point at and whisper about. He’s cleverly hidden himself by marrying an incredibly tolerant woman and finding himself an adorable dog. This is the best disguise for living in New England. The villagers have not yet run him out of his castle.

When he’s not scrawling delusional words about mythical-filled cities or dinosaurs, he’s busy tapping out code for websites and software. If he’s kept away from writing implements, he treks aimlessly through forests hiking trails, across abandoned beaches, and wandering the shelves bookstores. These three things don’t overlap except for that one time, and that was a really weird day.

PIECES OF YOU AND ME by Erin Fletcher - Publication Day Interview!

Today is the day Erin Fletcher's second YA novel, PIECES OF YOU AND ME, comes out, and I've been waiting for this day for AGES. Okay, for 2 years, since her debut novel WHERE YOU'LL FIND ME came out. I absolutely loved that book, and know I'm going to fall head over heels for PIECES OF YOU AND ME as well. 


Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains references to drinking, addiction, and just the right amount of angst. You’ll want to save this tortured hero, while at the same time, not want to change a single thing about him!

Five years.

That’s how long I’ve been gone. Since I left my best friend—the girl I loved—behind.

Five seconds.

That's how long it takes to realize I am completely, utterly, screwed. Because now that I’m back, my childhood crush has turned into so much more.

Rylee has changed. We both have. And now I’m drawn to her in a completely different way. To her smile. Her touch. To reliving old memories and making new ones. To the happiness she’s always given me that I haven’t felt since I left.


But her friends are hell-bent on keeping us apart. My dad is one drink away from destroying both of our lives, and maybe I am, too. It’s only a matter of time before I have to leave again, and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. I never get a choice.

The one choice I can make? Stay away from Rylee. Because if I don’t, I’ll break her heart—and mine—all over again. 

Buy from Amazon US / Amazon UK 


Erin, as well as being an awesome author, is one of the loveliest people I've met via Twitter, and kindly answered a few questions...


Kat: Rylee and Chase get a second chance at happiness when they meet again as teens after spending years apart, but both their lives have changed a lot in that time. What was the inspiration behind their story?

Erin: Most of my inspiration comes when I start wondering things. For my first book, I wondered what would happen if a girl discovered a guy living in her garage. For this one, I thought about how much people change from middle school to late in high school. I wondered if two childhood sweethearts, separated due to circumstances beyond their control, would be able to rekindle the closeness they once shared, despite their differences. You’re wondering that now, too, right? You’ll have to read to find out!

K: If you were casting a film of PIECES OF YOU AND ME, who would play the lead characters?

E: Oh man, such a good question. First I’d go with Matthew Daddario (plays Alec from Shadowhunters) for Chase, because he seems like he could play the slightly self-destructive/tortured hero character. (Plus, hello? Gorgeous.) For Rylee I’d go with Lindsay Pearce (plays Rebecca from Recovery Road). There’s this line in the book where Rylee tells Chase, “Stop worrying and kiss me,” and I can just see Lindsay Pearce saying that line! She also plays a wide variety of emotions, which is needed for Rylee.



K: I know you’re an author who is keen on music, so which song sums up PIECES OF YOU AND ME for you?

E: Okay, I’m going to have to be cliché and go with “Hello” by Adele. So many of those lines parallel PIECES OF YOU AND ME. Two people who were close but now have differences and a million miles between them. The way Rylee tried to reach out to Chase after he left without success. “Hello” is definitely the Rylee and Chase story. (I apologize if this song is stuck in your head now…it’s definitely stuck in mine!)



K: As a massive fan of WHERE YOU'LL FIND ME, your 2014 debut, I cannot wait to get to know more of your characters! Was it very different writing PIECES OF YOU AND ME? How does writing a second novel compare to the first?

E: Aw, thank you so much! I appreciate that! Yes, writing PIECES OF YOU AND ME was very different. There are surface-level differences (dual POV instead of singular, different tense, etc.) but also some bigger differences. First, when I started writing WHERE YOU’LL FIND ME, I had no idea how the book was going to end! I had no idea why Nate was living in Hanley’s garage (and was very frustrated when he wouldn’t give me his explanation, lol). Eventually I figured it out, but for PoYaM, I had everything plotted from the beginning. Much easier! Writing a second book is more stressful because there are things like deadlines to worry about, but also less stressful because you somewhat know what to expect.

K: You have another new release coming out later this year – what can you tell us about it? Any sneaky insider info you can share?

E: Sure! It’s another contemporary YA romance, this time about a figure skater named Lia and a star hockey player named Pierce. At first, Lia is not Pierce’s biggest fan. Far from it. But then she “meets” Pierce again in an online, anonymous environment, and starts to learn he has a completely different side than his public persona. But by then, things are so complicated that it might be too late for Lia’s online world to line up with the real one…

Thank you so much for having me on your blog! I appreciate it! 

K: Thank you, Erin! And happy publication day! 

Erin is a young adult author from North Carolina. She is a morning person who does most of her writing before sunrise, while drinking excessive quantities of coffee. She believes flip-flops qualify as year-round footwear, and would spend every day at the beach if she could.

March Wrap-Up!

Let's just pretend we're not already more than halfway through April, and I'm not posting this wrap-up horrendously late. Okay? Okay, cool.

March was a pretty sweet month, and I made a decent dent in my TBR. If you follow this blog (or my Instagram account) you'll know I generally try to combine books and exercise by listening to audiobooks when I go for long walks (it's the only way I can convince my lazy self to exercise). These are the books I read/listened to this month:



I continued my MG binge with THE PECULIAR by Stefan Bachmann (beautifully written) and Skulduggery Pleasant: PLAYING WITH FIRE (just as funny as the first in the series), caught up with Lockwood & Co. again in THE WHISPERING SKULL (I love Lockwood. A lot.), and then things got reeeeeally interesting.

The Mara Dyer Trilogy (UNBECOMING, EVOLUTION, RETRIBUTION) has been one I've wanted to binge-read for soooo long, and I decided that finishing the first round of my PURGE revisions warranted a little treat. And it was SUCH a treat - well worth waiting for. Now I can't wait until Michelle Hodkin's next book set in this world, which comes out next year (I think it's called THE SHAW CONFESSIONS, but that might be the series title.)

Then I got 2 ARCs to read from amazing author friends Dawn Kurtagich and Martin Stewart. Dawn's new book, AND THE TREES CREPT IN, is the most creepy, terrifying, gut-twisting book I've read in a long time. I thought her debut, THE DEAD HOUSE, was scary - this is twice as scary. Like, pants-shitteningly scary. If you like brilliant psychological horror and you haven't preordered it yet, then your life choices are suspect at best. I'll be running a contest soon on Instagram and Twitter where you'll be able to win my ARC of this book, so keep an eye out there if you want to get your hands on it early.

Martin Stewart's debut, RIVERKEEP, was also absolutely wonderful. The book itself has a great origin story - he wrote an 1800 word short story for MG author Simon P Clark's 1031 Story Challenge, and Penguin snapped up the book based on just that one short sample. So you have to believe his writing and story are captivating and attention-grabbing just from that, right? Absolutely bloody right. RIVERKEEP is about a boy who goes on a journey along a treacherous river to tackle an enormous sea monster and try to save his father. I highly, highly recommend reading this one ASAP, because everyone is going to be talking about it for a long time to come.

I also got to see some pretty cool places on my adventures. Here are a couple of my favourite pics from this month:

So, on to more bookish news!

BREAKER will be having its official launch in the UK in Prestatyn Library on 15th June, and I'm in the process of getting all the details sorted. If you want to come, it's free, but please drop a comment below or email me at katelliswrites@gmail.com so I can let the library know how many seats we'll need!

I also spent a good chunk of March working on edits for PURGE, which I just found out has an official release date of 8th September. It's available for preorder now, so if you want to show an author some love and order your copy early, please do! (Preordering is hugely helpful because it lets the publisher know there is demand for the book, and -- fingers crossed! -- makes them want to publish more books I write. See? It's a win-win.) Here's the link to buy PURGE on The Book Depository - a) because they offer free international delivery, and b) because they're offering 10% off right now, and who isn't in the market for a bargain?? But of course buy books from whoever/wherever you prefer to buy from :-)

There's no cover up yet for PURGE, but that'll be coming sooooon. And in the meantime, I'm working on the next round of edits. This is one of the songs I've been listening to on repeat as I work on it, because it's kind of perfect for PURGE:


I hope you had a great March, and if you want to share music/book recs, ask about any of my book stuff, or just say hi - then make free with the comments!

Today I'm hosting DOROTHY DREYER, author of the Reaper's Rite series. 

Dorothy has always believed in magic. Born in Angeles City, Philippines, to a Filipino mother and American Father, Dorothy grew up a military brat, living in Massachusetts, South Dakota, Guam, New Jersey, and New York. She now lives in Frankfurt, Germany, with her husband, two teens, and two Siberian huskies. Dorothy not only writes books with some element of magic in them, but has a fondness for reading those kinds of books as well. She also enjoys movies, chocolate, take-out, and spending time with family and friends. She’s known to make a pretty sweet cupcake when she has the time. She also tends to sing sometimes, so keep her away from your Karaoke bars. 

[As an aside, did you notice DREYER has 6 letters? I just LOVE that number.]


MY TETHERED SOUL, Book 2 in the Reaper's Rite series, is available to buy now


It’s been months since Zadie faced her sister’s Reaper, months during which she’s been under her mentor’s magical protection. But now that she’s turning seventeen, that protection is about to run out.

When dark forces lure Zadie to wander at night, she’s manipulated into committing unspeakable acts. With her friends and family at risk, Zadie must try to use her powers to break free from the Reaper’s grasp, or surrender to the Reaper’s Rite, which can only lead to death.

You can find out more about Dorothy and her books on her author website, but here you will find a sneak preview of MY FRAYED ETERNITY (Reaper's Rite book 3). Dorothy is giving away a copy of both MY TETHERED SOUL and MY FRAYED ETERNITY to the lucky winner of the pink team scavenger hunt!


EXCLUSIVE CONTENT

Here is a sneak peek at MY FRAYED ETERNITY, book three in the Reaper’s Rite series.

A floorboard creaked behind me. I swung around, my hand already sweeping the switchblade from my pocket.

What the—?

There she was again. The girl I kept seeing. She stood between the living room and dining room, staring at me.

It took a moment before I could get my mouth to work. “Who are you? What do you want?”

She eyed the weapon I held. Her chin went up, her jaw set, but she didn’t come closer. I pursed my lips and held the weapon higher. She raised her hands out in front of her, palms facing me. My grip tightened.

Taking a step forward into the light, she said, “I’m not here to hurt you.” Her intense green eyes shocked me almost as much as her Irish accent.

“Why are you following me?”

Her eyes dropped for a split second before meeting mine again. “I have a message from Chase.”

I lowered the switchblade. “Wha—? Chase?”

My head swirled. I hadn’t heard from Chase since he left last summer. I was sure he’d been avoiding contacting me as much as I’d avoided contacting him.

Irish Girl took yet another step closer. “He needs your help. He and his father.”

“Why? What happened?”

“They’ve been taken.”

I narrowed my eyes at her, my heart beating faster. “Taken by whom?”

“The dark faeries of Rostrevor Glen.”

Upcoming events - BREAKER launch, giveaways & other cool stuff

Hello!

Some fun shenanigans are afoot - as well as YA Scavenger Hunt (see my last post for deets) I'm busy arranging some fun event-type stuff behind the scenes.

Coming up for definite, I'll be holding a launch event for BREAKER on 15th June at Prestatyn Library+, where the fantastic launch for BLACKFIN SKY was also held. I'm really excited to work with the staff there again to set up an evening of bookish talk and signing. If you'd like to know more/attend the launch for BREAKER, give me a shout on email at katelliswrites@gmail.com

I'm pretty sure I'll be at YALC in London again this year, probably wandering the arena in some kind of non-sweaty cosplay. All being well, there will be samplers of my September release - PURGE - there to pick up for free, and I'll be happy to sign those if you catch me (it's not hard - I'm not a fast runner.)

Some pics from last year's YALC...

Horror panel with Dawn Kurtagich, Darren Shan, Lou Morgan, Will Hill, and Matt Whyman chairing

Agent-Author talk with my wonderful agent, Molly Ker Hawn of The Bent Agency, and me

Authors Moira Fowley-Doyle & Dawn Kurtagich
While I'm getting these things and other more tentative stuff sorted out, I'll also be holding a couple of online giveaways in the run up to BREAKER's release on 24th May. Aside from the YA Scavenger Hunt, there will be one pretty cool BREAKER swag pack to win (including my last ARC, *sob*) and some US editions of BLACKFIN SKY up for grabs on Dawn Kurtagich's Youtube channel and on Goodreads. I have some bookplates I'll be signing to send out to those who preorder BREAKER, too. Keep an eye out here if you fancy winning any of those, as I'll be announcing all the details soon.


For now...
