I'm super excited this morning! Not too long ago, I entered a Twitter short story contest. Mine was selected to have a video made, with a voice over actress reading it! https://storypitches.com/2019/06/03/twitter-short-story-you-called-by-katemarie-collins/ Seriously...go check it out! I'm awake now, and it's not the coffee's doing. LOL BB
It's Saturday. The house is quiet. I should be writing. And by that I mean more than just this blog post. LOL There's a sense of celebrity that comes with being able to tell people you're a published author. I can see it in their faces. You've done something that they think is special. With … Continue reading Let’s get real
It's Thursday. Outside, it's raining. Which isn't anything new for this part of the world, but we were dry (and warm) for a time. It's been a crazy few weeks since my last post. I haven't gotten far on either of my wips, which I need to change. I need to stop putting the writing … Continue reading New beginnings, temporary goodbyes
Hi! How are you? I hope things are going great for you. We've got a busy few days, so I'm trying to squeeze in some stuff before things get moving. If you haven't done so already, be sure to check out the new page on my website: D&D stories. They're short stories inspired by the … Continue reading No two writers are the same
I'm admitting it now. Not that I've ever hid it, really. I am now, and always will be, a Star Wars fan. I was 9 when the first one came out. We went to a drive in, and I didn't pull my eyes from the screen until my dad drove us off the lot. What … Continue reading When life hands you a new Star Wars trailer….
According to WordPress, I started this blog 7 years ago today. When I began, I was beyond clueless about what to do with a blog. Seriously wet behind the ears! For some people, seven years is nothing. A drop in the bucket. I've found that, as I get older, time seems to move differently. What … Continue reading Happy anniversary to my followers!
So, I should be writing. I really should. On an actual book and not this blog. But something came to my mind and I had to share it here. Currently, I have the file for 'Guarding Connor' open on my laptop. This would be the 4th book in The Waystation Guardians series. Honestly, there could … Continue reading Let’s talk about reviews
Happy Saturday! Today, dice will roll in our house. Saturday is our weekly D&D game. My husband and I have played, either together or separately, since the game first came out in the 1970's. Both of our children have played. No, it doesn't promote demonic worship or anything like that. What it does is teach … Continue reading Why, yes. My books are on KU!
Happy Tuesday everyone! Winter's grasp has let go at last. The sun has come back, warming the ground. Melting the last icy patches of dirty snow. And Muse the Purrbot is thrilled! I spent a good amount of time cleaning. Not a ton, mind you. But the weather's nice enough now that we want to … Continue reading Sunny days ahead!
I'm pleased to announce that the two Tiadar novels - Mark of the Successor and Consort of the Successor, now have new covers! The stories are the same, wonderful ones. It was time to update the covers, though. There wasn't any real connection between the covers, and I think this pair is amazing! Be sure … Continue reading New covers!
