Looking Forward on WIPpet Wednesday

Happiest of Wednesdays, one and all! You know, summer is busy for me. I make no apologies. And that’s why I’ve been somewhat absent of late. This month isn’t too bad, September and October will be hectic, and then things start to smooth out. Along with working my dog, going to Cow Camp, keeping up with projects around the farm, and life-in-general, I’ve been thrown eye-balls deep in editing/redrafting on both Edge of Darkness and Bound in Shadow. I’m getting notes back from Alphas on EoD, and last week I received the first half of edits on BiS. Exciting all the way around. And, in case you missed it on Twitter and FB, there is this (if you’d like to share at any time, let me know, I have a similar graphic with my name on it):

Which pretty much makes it an official thing. Even though no date has been set in stone, it’s looking like some time in November for the release. Some of you will be getting an e-mail from me as I work through my marketing ideas. I’ve got plans. Many, many plans. Those of you not included on the email are still near and dear to me (and Driev) and I’ll be announcing ways you can help as well. Or, feel free to contact me with your own suggestions. I will have ARCs available for anyone who would like to read and review. If you want to be on that list, drop me a pm or put it in the comments.

EoD should also be released before the year’s end, so you Bolin and Ciara fans can stop panicking. It’s coming. I swear. And I’m feeling far better about it than I did early on. This one quite thoroughly beat the stuffing out of me.

In any case, it’s Wednesday, and that means WIPpets. For the time being I’ve had to push Roe and Fader to the back burner. Don’t worry, just like Arnold, they’ll be Bach.

*waits for groans to die down*

Moving on… since I’m drafting on Edge of Darkness I’ve decided to take my WIPpet from that. I went to what is currently Chapter Eight for the month, and I grabbed the 5th paragraph for the day.

She arched an eyebrow at him. “That’s it? Sorry?”


And now I’m off. Have a great rest of your week.
Connect with me on Facebook Goodreads Twitter and Pinterest Read excerpts and buy copies of my works on the Published Works page. e-book & paperback copies also available on Amazon and other on-line book retailers.





  1. Hope you can get some rest in the midst of your busy schedule.

  2. I actually laughed aloud and only groaned inwardly. 😀

    You tease! Though if that’s Ciara talking to Bolen, sounds very in character

    I think I already said this, but put me on whichever BiS lists you see fit. I probably shouldn’t volunteer for any ARCs, but consider this me volunteering for an ARC (I’ll make time for Driev).

    • Hee, hee. Laughing out loud is good — even if the pun is bad. 😉

      And you’re half right on your guess. It’s Ciara, but she’s talking to Berk.

      *claps excitedly* Don’t worry, ARCs probably won’t be available until later in September. I think.

  4. LOL…I think your WIPpet sums up your WIPpet. It’s so meta.

  5. Augh, tantalising snippet… and very fitting spot of mad laughter there. :p

  6. My son would say you get a Sticker of Approval for that very bad Bach joke!

    I DO hope I’m on some kind of list that involves Driev. =) I guess it would be silly to stalk my own email, but, then, I do have a goal to empty my inbox this month, so there’s that….

    The snippet is quite a tease….and that ad….yummy! I will be sharing it, for sure! =)

  7. I accept the Sticker of Approval with solemn reverence.

    Oh, you are on some kind of list, alright. 😉 Stalk your e-mail on Friday. That’s when it should appear.

  8. Love the graphic. BEst luck with the launch. And cow camp. Wow. *jealous

  9. “That’s it?” – Exactly how I’m feeling! 😉

    Can’t wait to get my hands on both EoD and BiS

  10. I have not seen the banner on social media! I don’t think. It’s possible I did, but social media is not something my brain makes a lot of space for. That’s a great banner. 🙂

    And that snippet is perfect. Because it’s exactly what all of us are thinking. 😛

  11. What a strangely appropriate snippet! *g*

    I’ll be happy to help with the launch, btw. 🙂

  12. Beautiful graphic – loving the colors. The WIPpet was perfect!

  13. I’m so excited for you, Kathi. I love the banner, and I’m happy to share it with your name on it whenever you are ready. The quote on top is actually one of my absolute favorites in the book, so I think you chose well!

    I’d also like to help out in any way I can with social media promos, as well as being happy to read and review an ARC for BiS. 🙂
