Writing updates!

I’m just feeling super inspired right now, you guys. So many ideas. If you need book ideas, come to me. I’ve got a thousand. Maybe I’ll sell them on Etsy for a dollar apiece. But like, in nice calligraphy.

And isn’t that itself a book idea? The guy with writer’s block, and the girl selling ideas. You see the problem.

But in the interest of keeping myself accountable, I’m going to tell you what I’m working on right now so if you never hear about any of these again, you can slap me around a little.

First: Kiss and Make Up will be a midsummer release, most likely. It’s about a bad girl makeup artist and a by-the-books cosmetics company owner. I’m having a blast with it.

The Workaround is a stand-alone companion to Screwmates. Remember Ava, the “agent of chaos” best friend who set up Marc and Madison as rookies to begin with? She takes off on a trip around the world, and who better than the tour guide to help her join the 5-continent club?

Finally, I’m working on a short story called Until The End that’s not a romance. It’s sort of in the same vein as That Feel When, if you read that. Just in terms of stretching my writing muscles, I’ve committed myself to one short story a month.

That’s all the active projects I have, but there are multiple more outlines waiting in the wings of my Finder.

So if you see me online too much, yell at me.

Oh my hell, you guys, every time I say I’m going to be better at blogging, I get worse. So here’s a brief overview of what’s happened lately in Kayti news:

More books! I’m on track to release 6 in 2017, plus a few shorts. I’m going to do my best to keep the Books Tab updated. Notably, I’ll have a new traditionally published book (that means you can find it at Barnes and Noble!) out August 30th that I am super excited about. It’s a lot less funny than most of my books, but it has a lot more of my heart in it as well.

Signings! None. I know myself. When I travel, I like to completely immerse myself in the experience. After 2 years of leaving once a month at least, and losing so much writing time to enjoying the world, I am buckling down, kittens.

I moved back to my beautiful hometown of KCMO from my equally beloved Colorado, and as I’m enjoying the early summer farmers market offerings, my friends back in the Rockies are getting pummeled with snow. Times like this make one feel okay about one’s decisions.

I guess that’s basically it? Pop culture-wise, right now I’m super into the My Favorite Murder and Between The Covers podcasts, Sense 8 and American Gods on TV (also new Kimmy Schmidt is out in like a few hours) and Alt J’s new single gives me the highest of hopes for a creepy, catchy new album.

Okay, that’s all, xoxo kittens.
