On Sale Now: The Courtesan’s Avenger (Desertera #2)

perf5.250x8.000.inddAfter over a year of working and waiting, I’m pleased to announce that The Courtesan’s Avenger (Desertera #2) is available in ebook AND paperback formats on all major online retailers.

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who has helped me get to this point. I couldn’t have published one book, let alone two, without the support of my family, friends, and fellow writers. My readers deserve a special thanks: your encouraging emails, social media shout-outs, and heartwarming reviews are the fuel that keeps my inspiration burning. Thank you joining my journey.

When I published The Cogsmith’s Daughter (Desertera #1) last year, I thought my heart would burst from panic. Here I was, an unknown and inexperienced author, putting her art out for the world to judge. Publishing my nonfiction booklets has felt significantly less personal (more like writing one of my craft blog posts), so I thought I would be better prepared for this launch. After all, this will be my tenth publication. It’s old hat now, right?

Wrong. I’m still a bundle of nerves and excitement, of dread and hope. I’m not a parent, but I have to imagine that this is what it feels like to send your child off to kindergarten or university. I did the best that I could. Now it’s up to you, little one.

I’ll write a longer reflection post after the book launch buzz simmers down. For now, I’m off to take deep breaths, celebrate, then start book three.

If you haven’t bought your copy of The Courtesan’s Avenger yet, click this link to download it from your favorite retailer.

If you’re waiting on signed paperback copies, stay tuned. I’ll have purchase links available once I have copies to sign.

    Congrats, Kate! You’ve written and published two novels since I’ve known you, and I’m still fumbling along with that same story I just can’t seem to finish. Way to go, kiddo! Here’s hoping I’ll take some inspiration from you and get Reese’s story finally done one of these days… 🙂
