A new Amputeddy book – FREE

Amputedd makes a choice ebook cover

This spring, I was honored to work with my son’s teacher, Ms. Jamie Davidson, and his 3rd Grade class. First, I read them the Amputeddy books, and later, thanks to their inspiration, I wrote a new book!

We were all so excited about the book that we decided the class should illustrate a special edition of the book. This is our work together. They chose the title and each child illustrated a page of the book.

This was a wonderful project and a beautiful experience for all of us and I hope you will download and read my book with their fantastic art! Don’t forget to read our special message to all amputees. We took special care to write it from the bottom of our hearts.

Limited time release: Wilding

Wilding

I have just released my current edit of Wilding for a very limited time on Kindle for the Amazon Storyteller Writing Competition 2017! Yes, I plan to continue to seek a Literary Agent for this work, and I will remove it as soon as the contest is decided.

Buy Wilding for Kindle

Dellcine cannot submit and become an obedient human. She lives in torment, consumed with bitterness toward her alien masters. The trans-dimensional beings called the ShaZha claim to rule Earth in order to rehabilitate humanity, but she can’t sympathize with their cause.

Her rebellion provides no relief until one day she hears the rumors of a human who knows of the world outside the Prodigy community. This discovery spurs Dellcine to form a daring escape plan. Can she liberate herself from her stifling existence, and will the world outside give her everything she hoped for?

If you loved The Disenchanted Pet and wanted to know more about the ShaZha universe, you’ll love Wilding. Be sure to purchase before the contest period ends!

If you haven’t read The Disenchanted Pet, I’ve made it FREE all this weekend!

Now we’re talking!

Do you love the arts? Do you think that artists should be paid for their work and that work makes our society beautiful and worth living in? I sure do! (Or else I wouldn’t write.) Well, I just found a site to help artists of all kinds find people who value them and will support their work: Patreon!

Do you love my writing? If you do, become my patron! For just $1 or $3 a month (or more if you rock) you can be just like Lorenzo Di Medici and help artists create. The hairdo is optional.

Just click this button! (Or look to the right and click on Lorenzo in the sidebar.)

If you are an artist, poet, musician, or writer, or whatever art form you love, create your own page!

Here’s my page:

Review Submission Service – NEW

reading-1420126

I hope this will be a huge help to you! I realized how hard it is to find time to submit reviews, and thought maybe this would be a great Author Service. So many authors I know say “I never have time to submit my book for review!” What do you think?

New! – Review Submittal Service – $30

Book reviews are the key to success in self-publishing. I will research and submit your book review request to book review sites with your information. I do not guarantee you receive a review, but I will research reviewers appropriate to your genre, submit your book, and supply you with a record of each submission and the estimated time for reply if the site offers one.

The first three reviews for a book will cost extra due to setup time, but each additional 5 for the same book will cost the same, even long after the initial requests. (I won’t have to do as much research, so you get more review requests.) If you don’t have a review request letter written yet, I will write it for you (see price below).

In addition, at no cost, I will provide you with feedback on how easy it is to find you and your books online. Rather than have you provide me with links, I will go looking for you and see if I can find your books for sale.

Each book, First 3 review requests – $30

Same book, Additional 5 review requests – $30

Custom-written Review Request Letter – $10

PNWA: Connections and Reflections

502

I have been honored this weekend to participate in the PNWA Writer’s Conference, and let me tell you, it is an amazing experience! Never in my life have I attended an event where everyone there has something amazing in common with me, and where I can walk up to a total stranger and know exactly what to say with a guaranteed enthusiastic response. “Oh, I see by your nametag that you write Literary Fiction. What are you writing now? Are you pitching?” (If you don’t know about literary conferences, we pitch our books to agents, not baseballs.)

Hi to all my amazing new PNWA friends, and sorry/not sorry that I am here on the couch instead of driving down to SeaTac again to join you for the last day. I just exhausted myself and had to sleep in and sit at home on my couch instead of those chairs from hell. (Well, I guess they are not actually from hell unless you sit on them for almost 16 hours for multiple days.)

One important thing, though: I was astonished how many of my new writer friends had zero social media presence! As a self-published author, that seems like an impossible thing. But they don’t and it gave me an idea to resurrect my Author Services pages with some new options:

Twitter setup

Facebook setup for authors who “Don’t do Facebook” (This will offer and option with NO Facebook presence except related to books.)

WordPress blog setup

WordPress social media connection activation

BlogSpot social media connection activation

and more!

I will start on my page in Author Services after I have had my coffee with pricing and details. If I met you at PNWA I would love to trade services with you instead of charging you money!

Until my information is up, if you just can’t wait for my help, email me at katepolicani (at) gmail.com.

Cheers!

Also, starting today, you can hear all the shocking truths about my life on my new blog, Honest After Forty. At the official cusp of middle age, I have decided to grant myself the gift of frankness in rebellion of all the stupid conventions that prevent us from truly connecting with one another. I will write on this blog to tell you honestly about myself, you, our life, and our culture. Sometimes it will be funny, and sometimes it will embarrass you. It might make you angry. But it’s the truth. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Science or Science Fiction?

When new technology looks like it came right out of Science Fiction, does the science influence the fiction or does the fiction influence the science? The answer is … yes! Both are true, according to an article in The Guardian, The real science of science fiction. Authors get ideas from science and dream ahead to what it will become. Scientists read Science Fiction and become inspired with new ideas. Often, the two groups merge and scientists write Science Fiction.

http://www.theguardian.com/books/booksblog/2015/jan/21/real-science-science-fiction-sf-scholar

Whether you write the stories or create the reality, you’re both important to innovation and progress! Go you!
