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!

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.

New Review: Waning Moon

Waning Moon

by PJ Sharon

Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Dystopian

Read my review here: http://katepolicanisreviews.wordpress.com/2013/12/12/waning-moon-by-pj-sharon/

Synopsis

In the year 2057, in a post-apocalyptic world where a polar shift threatens the survivors of a widespread pandemic with extinction, sixteen-year-old genetically enhanced Lily Carmichael has more immediate problems. Her uncle is dying of cancer and her healing abilities are ineffective against the blood ties that bind them. In order to find a cure, Lily must leave the protection of her quiet town and journey to the trading city of Albany, all while avoiding the Industry, an agency that would like nothing better than to study and exploit her abilities.

Seventeen-year-old Will Callahan has been searching for his father since severe storms blasted through the Midwest, killing his mother and sister. When he learns that his father may be in the city, he catches a ride with Lily, a girl who has come to his rescue more than once. As the two embark on a dangerous journey, the tension between them grows. But the secrets Will’s keeping could put Lily in far more danger than traveling to the city with him, and if he was any kind of man, he would have told her to run the minute she found him.

Discovery 3: The Disenchanted Pet

TDP cover new b

The Disenchanted Pet

By Kate Policani

Genre: Science Fiction, Dystopian

Short synopsis: Far into the future, the Earth is ruled by the ShaZha, a hyper-intelligent race of alien beings who are plagued by the violence and volatility of the human race. Supposedly intending to repair the broken societies and polluted planet, they have found the Human problem to be much more complex than they ever imagined. Zarah is a Prodigy, an obedient human, with a caring ShaZha master. Zarah wants to prove all her master’s hopes that humans can be civilized and responsible. When she is lost by her master and exposed to the other side of humanity, she must confront the possibility she might be not a valued citizen, but a pet.

I am currently writing my next book called The Stray, a second book set in the ShaZha Earth. It isn’t a sequel, but the story connects with The Disenchanted Pet

Long Synopsis: The Disenchanted Pet is ashort Science Fiction novel that takes place in the popular “post-apocalyptic Earth” setting,  exploreing the unique problems with the Human Race and how to “fix” it. Zarah is a young, optimistic girl, entering into the exciting world of adulthood with an idealistic perspective. But Zarah lives in the a future where Humanity is ruled by an alien race occupying Earth in order to rehabilitate and repair the planet and its people. Reality intrudes on Zarah’s unspoiled outlook when she is attacked and separated from her SaSa, an alien guardian who is like a parent to her. Trapped within the Feral Facility, pregnant and separated from her home and new husband, she learns all the mistakes about the reality she believed in. She sees that the “Ferals”, who who aren’t serviceable within  the ShaZha’s plans, are not necessarily the monsters her Prodigy society has portrayed them to be. Suffering through the harsh truth about her world and the errors in her ideals, she must face a future without the assurances upon which she always relied. The Disenchanted Pet appeals to Science Fiction lovers as well as readers who have never explored the genre before. It explores the disillusionment of growing up and the harsh realities of adulthood, but with aliens.

Author Blog-in: Scarlet Bastards by Sean MacUisdin

 

“Breathe deeply, jawan, it shall be your last.”

So was the memorable opening dialogue of The Scarlet Bastards, the memoirs of a young man named Alexander ”Sikunder” Armstrong. A seventeen year old  runaway from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, “Sikunder”  fled the tedium of a well planned life to the frigid dystopian wastes of the Serberor Campus on the distant colony of Samsāra some 20 light years from Earth. Here, as a jawan in the United Nations Off-World Legion, “Sikunder” experiences the dumping ground of the refugee camps of the United Nations; where tribes and warlords rule with an  iron fist and life is cheap and easily lost.

Come join “Sikunder” as he fights pirates on the decks of a paddlewheeler, teaches the finer points of the j-stroke to his decuria leader, MacShaka the Tartan Zulu, and encounters members of the villainous Chinese gang, The Black Hand, after a bottle of bad pinot noir and a plate of the foulest fish in the Seleucus Lacus!
