More Books Coming Soon!

I’m excited to tell you that more books by Kitty will be coming your way soon! Yay!

I just finished the first chapter and synopsis of BELLA AND THE BOUNTY HUNTER and sent it off to Love Inspired Suspense last Thursday. In a month or so, I’ll know whether or not they liked it and want to see the rest of the book. When Isabelle’s sister is kidnapped by Chinese corporate spies, she has to work with the bounty hunter who is hunting Lucy to have any chance of saving her.

UNEXPECTED HERO will be coming out in February if Harper Voyager doesn’t buy it. That’s my fun superhero romantic comedy. What will happen when a young newlywed discovers she has a superpower?

Starting this week, I’m back to working on the print version of LITTLE MISS LOVESICK. Hard work, and a lot of it, but I think the next book I bring out in paperback will happen quicker and easier. I’m so excited to hold my first book in my hand, and not just on my Kindle!

And in December I expect to be working on the second draft of LOVE AT THE FLUFF AND FOLD, the first book in my Strays of Loon Lake series. I hope to have that to you in the spring.

Oh, and look for “Rescue at Loon Lake,” a short story in that series, to be appearing in the anthology MOONLIT ENCOUNTERS in December!

If any of you have bought the anthology ROMANCING THE PAGES, where my superhero short story “Hero in Disguise” appears, I’d love to know what you think of it. I know a couple of people have read the story now. Yay!

So if you like the fun way I write stories about women who find themselves in crazy situations and realize that they have more power than they realize, stay tuned! I’m going to give you a lot more reading material in the next few months!

Meanwhile, find a good book to read by somebody else and tell me about it! 🙂

The Joy of Finishing a Race

No, not a footrace. Not this time. Today my joy comes from knowing that I said I would polish my superhero book and send it to Harper Voyager during their open submission window. The window closed at midnight Sunday and I submitted my book at 10:15pm.


I worked 5-16 hours a day (mostly 8-12 hrs) for the last two weeks moving scenes around, finding plot holes, fixing problems, and tweaking word choices. Whew! But the book is GOOD! Really good! I cried writing the second to last scene!

So here’s the way it works. The publisher says to wait three months for them to contact you if they like your book. If you don’t hear from them, they aren’t interested. That gives me till mid-January to give it to my editor for one more polish, create a book cover, and consider all the tasks on my self-publishing checklist.

If Harper Voyager doesn’t take the book (it may or may not be right for them; they published Game of Thrones, after all), then YOU will be able to buy the book in February! Yay!!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a long-awaited date with my bed. I’m exhausted, but so so happy! Thanks for enjoying my excitement! 🙂
