I am here to introduce myself and my project I have been working on since NaNoWriMO 2017. Yeah, that long.
First, let me talk about myself:
I am Canadian, perpetually tired an avid dog lover, though I don’t own one, and currently trying to pretend 2018 never happened and hoping 2019 will be My Year. I post often on twitter, you might have seen my tweets before over on @KatieCWrites (please ignore the typos, I edit my books, not my twitter). Villains are my jam and I love them all from the Darkling to Kylo and Carden and recently Corien in Claire Legrand’s FURYBORN (please read this book it’s AMAZING) I like to yell about books and complain about my own, but its all in good fun because I love writing its just hard sometimes. I put sour cream in my instant noodles (try it) cheese on my fries and gravy (see: Candian) and will shamelessly go to Starbucks multiple times a day. I love mythology, history and fairytales, and most of my books combine at least two of the three.
Here are some of my recent fav reads:
- THE CRUEL PRINCE/ THE WICKED KING (still recovering RIP me)
- THE BELLES
- GIRLS OF PAPER AND FIRE
- SHADOW OF THE FOX
- THE DIVINERS audiobook (THIS IS SO GOOD)
- DESCENDANT OF THE CRANE
OKAY so now I will talk about my AMM project since that is why you are all here.
My 2019 AMM project will be my 1920s reimagining of Hades and Persephone. It features:
- Devilish gods
- Probably too much prohibited liquor
- Flappers, speakeasies and lots of 1920s slang.
- One handsome devil by the name of Liam Cronin
- A soul-mate themed romance filled with betrayal and murder
THE DIVINERS x THE STAR-TOUCHED QUEEN
Eighteen-year-old debutante gets captured by Hades after sneaking out to his club & finds out they share an ancient curse. She must remember who she is before the goddess inside her destroys everything she loves—including the devilish god that haunts her.
“And perhaps she had known from that very moment whose eye she had caught, not that she would ever admit it to anyone afterward.”
“Perhaps I thought I deserved whatever judgement I received, long ago. I lost myself for a time, Josephine. I might not be privy to the same things I once was, but I come by my reputation honestly. I am not a good person.“
“They were falling for each other and falling hard — anyone looking could see that. Even Eros himself couldn’t have changed anything.”
Hope you enjoyed learning a bit about me and my book! Please follow me on twitter @KatieCWrites to follow my journey and obsess over creating and reading books together!
