I love Kickstarter (and a Bound by Bloodsong update)

I just backed Candace Osmond's Omnibus for Dark Tides. I've never read her books or even heard of her, but her campaign totally sucked me in. I mean, look at the reward tiers! A mystery box?! A Funko Pop doll?! It was a really hard choice, but I went with the mystery...

Mind. Blown.

My mind is absolutely blown that Brandon Sanderson has raised over $20 million on Kickstarter and 12,698 people have paid $500 for four books (hardcover, ebook, and audio) and 8 book boxes. Mind. Blown. Meanwhile, I'm launching my own Kickstarter later this month (I...

Achievements Unlocked! And Book Drop!

I hit a milestone overnight! Bound by Bloodsong has over 250 pre-orders! That's way more than I've had on any of my books, and it's a HUGE deal! I mean, I very rarely pre-order books, but when I do, it's because I absolutely love a book or an author, so thank you guys...

News!

First up, it's like I remembered I have a website! lol I seriously need to get better at updating this thing. It's been almost a year, and I had a new book release over the summer! And I have a new release this month! It's sort of a prequel to A Void of Magic, but...

The Shadow Reader is a Barnes & Noble FREE eBOOK FAVORITES this week!

    I love it when my books get extra attention from a retailer. The Shadow Reader is a Barnes & Noble's FREE eBOOK FAVORITES this week! Yes, that means you can read it for free. (Psst: you can also find it free everywhere else this week!) If you know...

I Don’t Like Dystopian Novels

It took me forever to read The Hunger Games. I checked it out from the library probably three or four times. I'd read the first page or two, get bored or distressed, and set it down. Little did I know I needed to make it to page ten to get hooked. lol But The Hunger...

Shades of Allegiance and Fast Reader

Shades of Allegiance is here! Finally! It's only been four years, two months, and twenty-two days since my last book, but let's not dwell on that. Let's celebrate the fact that Ash and Rip are back, and they are freaking awesome in this book. You should read. One of...

A Deleted Scene and 11 Days to go

A deleted scene! This was going to be the opening scene to Shades of Allegiance. I wrote it years ago, and it stayed in the book all the through beta readings and even went to my editor. I like the scene, but it didn't set up the book quite right, and after some deep...

Blueberry Muffins

Forgive me for a post that's totally unrelated to writing. My boys are in 4th grade. They're allowed to bring a snack to school. A few years ago, I started making blueberry muffins to send with them. I figured making them myself was better than buying them, and...

Should I write more Science Fiction? Or get back to Urban Fantasy?

54 days until Shades of Allegiance! I can't wait for you guys to read this. I think it might be your favorite Shades book! I love so much about it. I'm still waiting on a few last comments from my editor, then it's on to the copy editor, then proofreading, then I have...

A Video!

Thought it might be fun (or weird?) to record myself signing the very first print copy of Shades of Treason. I've got videographer skillz. Not. Watch me totally geek out over a pen, and find out who gets the very first copy. WARNING: Do not watch this in full screen...

I’m Back! Blog Tour, and Giveaway (and a secret!)

I’m Back! (And note to self: never again schedule a long vacation the week before a book release.) Yep, that’s right folks. I was on vacation last week. In Alaska. It was just as beautiful and relaxing as everyone says it is. Spreadsheet Guy and two other couples who...

Self Improvement, Food Prep, and No More Shopping

Kind of a stressful week here at Casa Williams. Lots of stuff going on, and I'm having a fair amount of Mom Guilt this week. I'm hoping to get some writing done a little later this week. I'm way behind where I want to be (surprise, surprise), but I'm hoping some of...

Some Uploading Thoughts

(This is kind of an "inside baseball" post (INSIDE BASEBALL! I've always wanted to use that term, even though I'm not a baseball fan. Woohoo!) so if you're not interested in behind-the-pages kind of technical stuff, you might want to close your eyes. :-)) What have I...

Shades of Treason (Teaser Tuesday)

Shades of Treason (Teaser Tuesday)

Got a snippet from Shades of Treason for you guys today. It shows one of my favorite parts of the book--Ash's flirtatious interaction with her former instructor, Rykus. Ash gets a kick out of provoking him, and she's pretty darn good at it. 🙂   Katie said...

Aren POV #3

Warning: Unedited writing commences below. Aren’s POV #3 Falling into a fissure without a plan is never a good idea. It’s even worse when the deadliest shadow-reader in the Realm is nearby. The shock of the In-Between makes it impossible to arrange a strategic exit....
