Weekly Update: January 21, 2022

Getting the sad news out of the way first. The cat I mentioned last week did, indeed, decide she was done by this past Wednesday. She will be missed, from her calm acceptance of everything and everyone, to her mighty purr, to the way she made a tribble noise every time a person would pet …

Weekly Update: January 14, 2022

Okay—this week is a little wonky. Like, I lost track of which days I was supposed to post which chapter of which book wonky. Mostly because since last Friday, I have flown to and from another state (in two days!), then come home to an aged and ill cat who we’re at the “coaxing to …

Weekly Update: January 7, 2022 (New Year, New Website)

Happy Friday, y’all. So, the first week of the year flew past in a flurry of getting youngest student ready to return to college. I’ll be accompanying her, so the weekend is basically me, on planes. Crossing fingers weather and flights behave. While all that was happening, I pulled the lever on a small, yet …

Weekly Update: December 31, 2021 (Ringing Out the Old)

Kathleen here, bearing greetings and wishes for a Happy New Year (Solar Edition), from all the Outrageous Fiction crew.

Weekly Update: December 24, 2021

First of all, happiest of birthdays to Mr. L. Gene Brown, who is not only an amazing creator of worlds, he shares a birthday with my (Kathleen’s) youngest—meaning there’s at least one person out there who won’t lose track of that close-to-holiday birthday. To celebrate, both The Gemini Hustle and Outrageous Fortune have been reduced …

Technical Difficulties

Whelp, it’s real—the new version of the website is live, and it’s causing some hitches in our giddy-up (that’s a very western phrase for “oops”). For readers who were following The Libra Gambit, I (most certainly foolishly) created a new link. This is great for my “keeping the closet tidy” but terrible for people who’ve …

Casting a Novel: Zodiac’s Jessyn Breeshandra

A Naihad’s Work is Never Done The role of Jessyn Breeshandra in The Zodiac Files is arguably one of the more difficult to cast. As the half-breed daughter of a Human and As a Rasalkan empath, trained in the famed Naihad Academy, the character must embody grace, compassion, intelligence, and sensuality. Sworn to the service …

RIP KDP

Confirmation of a Death Foretold For those keepingup with the drama from the last post, I regret to inform you that my Kindle Direct Publishing Account (the KDP of the title) is now as dead as disco. Though I cannot, even now, tell you what mistake I made to trigger the event, even after having …
