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.

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!

Djabbim cover 4TDP cover new b

My birthday is coming up and I love to give YOU things on my birthday. This year, I will give away The Disenchanted Pet FREE on Kindle for my birthday, February 9th! In addition, I will start a Kindle Countdown deal on Don’t Judge a Book By Its Magic, starting at 99 cents! This will have to be delayed until February 23rd, but it will last for a week.

Last, but certainly not least, I will launch my new blog blog with pure blogginess, Honest After Forty. Yes, I am turning forty this year and I will be totally honest about that, and lots more. I hope with this new blog to leave you uncomfortably amused, anxiously inspired, and awkwardly touched.

Woot!

A new ebook by Kate Policani

Rites path

Rite’s Path

by Kate Policani

It’s been a while during my hard work on Wilding (which you won’t see right away because I am looking to publish it through traditional channels), but finally I have released a new book! This is a short story with a fun twist – it is a choose-your-own-adventure style book for adults! Yes, you can click through the ebook to reach the next part of the tale. It’s also a 99 cent title and a Kindle Select book, so you may get it for free!

Synopsis:

Mesha and her brothers attend the Grand Festival of Duman to see the greatest spectacle in the land of Sas against their Father’s wishes. Mesha’s people don’t worship Duman and consider his believers to be reprobates. Her sneaky brothers brought her along rather than give up their fun, and she didn’t object.

In the Queen’s Courtyard, everyone expected that the ceremonial dove the queen released would choose a sacrifice. But it should have landed on an object, not a person! The bird lands on Mesha, choosing her as a sacrifice to Duman.

What will Mesha do? Will she die for a god she doesn’t believe in? Can she cling to her beliefs in the face of death and all the decadence of the palace?

The Disenchanted Pet refreshed

TDP cover new b

I’ve done a deep edit on The Disenchanted Pet and another pass with Kathleen, my editor. If you’ve purchased the Kindle file, it should automatically upload the new version. If you purchased the paperback, you now have a limited edition!

The print book gets an upgrade next!

The last time I checked, Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, WA still has some copies of the old book with the old (award-winningly ugly) cover. If you like limited editions, this is your chance to get one.

If you don’t have it, you’re missing one of my most popular books.

NaNoFiMo

While many of you gorgeous babies plunge into National Novel Writing Month, I will embark on my own “National Novel Finishing Month”! The Stray remains open on my task bar for (mostly) daily work. I’m not sure if I can finish this month but I definitely hope to complete it before the year ends.

Also, The Disenchanted Pet sits on metaphorical blocks for an overhaul! My darling first book deserves the touch of all the knowledge I have learned over these two years since its publication. It feels fitting to work on the series books together, and I find I discover many insights to share between them.

Sorry to say it, but The Stray will not appear on Kindle as soon as I finish it. I will be searching for a most excellent literary agent to help me take the book to traditional publishers. If you know somebody or are somebody, give me a holler!

Another Stab

Did I scare you?

I’ve been working on cover designs to update Don’t Judge a Book By Its Magic. This is the winner of this round. What do you think? Any suggestions?

Is it an improvement over the original cover? (I love this cover but I’m told it looks too Middle Grade instead of New Adult)
