Merrick Update!

Hello readers!!

This post is to update you on my writing schedule. I know you are waiting on a release date for Give Me Hell. In the past I made the mistake of announcing a release date for The End Game and subsequently had to change it! I don’t want to make the mistake of doing that again! This book is in its final stages and a release date is imminent. When I’m 100% sure of it’s release I’ll announce the date on all social media.
If I get all my ducks in a row (editing, proofreading, formatting etc) it should be ready for Christmas.
There have been a lot of you questioning me over Merrick’s release and unfortunately I haven’t been able to answer you all individually so hopefully you get this update!

Merrick is happening! This book is my next release after Give Me Hell. For those who have been waiting two long years for this, my apologies, but this story couldn’t be written until now. I had The End Game to write and release (and I’m so glad I did because that book was loved so much it made me a USA Today Bestseller, which has been the absolute highlight of my career! Thank you all so much!), and then Give Me Hell to finish up (or risk being lynched lol).
BUT THIS! MERRICK! Never have I been more excited about a story than I am about this one. So much that I literally cannot sleep. The book is outlined and ready to go now that Give Me Hell is in its final stages.
Be ready is all I can say. Nothing in this story is what it seems, and Merrick is going to break you.

The Give Me series update!

Guess what! The badass brigade is getting a makeover!!!!
I’m so excited about this! The new covers have been updated. They’re edgier, darker, and whole lot sexier. You’re going to love them, I promise you.

If you LOVE the current covers, they are now limited edition. So if you want signed paperbacks with these covers (for an upcoming book signing I’m attending or just in general), you need to let me know!!
You can either order them via this link:
You can just shoot me an email

If you’re thinking you want the paperbacks for the new covers then hold off on any paperback purchases until they’re ready to be rolled out.
Thank you! xo

PS Here is a little sneak peek.
PPS YES!!! I am writing Give Me Hell right now and I’m so excited about this book. It’s a little different then what you are used to when it comes to this merry brigade of troublemakers, but it’s awesome all the same, because Mac and Jake have a long history that needs to be shared. No release date yet. I will post here on my blog and all social media when I do, so be sure not to miss it by keeping up with my posts!

Preorder THE END GAME now at 99c

OMG I’M SO EXCITED TO FINALLY HAVE THIS BOOK UP ON PREORDER FOR YOU ALL! Let’s start with the links, and then I can move on to other matters.

Phew! Now all those internet hieroglyphics have been dispensed, I can speak freely.

I’ve been told I’m a little bit insane offering up this book at 99c. It’s a 433 page book, and it took me a year to write. A YEAR OF MY LIFE and my work being sold off at 99c. Granted there was time off in there for personal breaks. It’s been a difficult year. Some of you may know, some of you may not, that I lost my mother while writing this story, and I also lost someone else as well (not to a death, but it feels in the same manner), and it meant putting the release date back by five whole months. That being said, I’ve dedicated this book to my mother. The ache of her loss is still as sharp today, as the day she passed away.

During that time I received from some very not nice letters from readers expressing their anger in relation to my delay (and really, isn’t there enough hate in the world without adding more to it?).
To those readers I ‘lost’ during the writing of this book, I’ll tell you that some things are more important in life than getting your hands on a book instantly.That patience is a virtue (or so my Gran always told me, God bless her sweet little soul). And that it’s better to get an authors work that is done to the best of their ability, rather than something half-assed in order to meet a deadline.

And I’m getting to my point I promise you. I finally finished that book, and I’m throwing a corny cliche out there (and for that I sincerely apologise), but it feels like this book is something I CAN be proud of, and something that’s been born from the ashes of a horrific year, a year that I’m not trying to put behind me, but a year I’m trying to learn and grow from. It’s also been a year that readers have stuck by me, patiently telling me they’d wait for my book for as long as it takes to write it, and that humbles me, makes me a bit teary, and it fills me with pride, mothertrucking PRIDE, because I have the best readers in the world. I also have a wonderful network of author friends and bloggers in the industry who’ve kept me sane, and who have made me smile, and have made me realise that no one ever figures out this living thing anyway, so lets just embrace it and enjoy it for what it is.

But now that ARCs have been unleashed on the world and preorders are being made (and thank you so much for being a part of this with me!), I’ve been FULL of self-doubt. Why can I never quite believe in myself enough to have confidence in what I do, and who I am? I’ve received some exciting, glowing, five star reviews. I’ve also been told this is the best work I’ve ever done. That this book is gritty, and real, and it’s full of heart and love, and laughter and that it’s made them FEEL (and OMG seriously, are you all for real? I know in my mind you are, but my heart struggles to wrap its little feelings around what I’m being told). And heck, the whole premise behind this book is about learning to believe in yourself. How can I write about that if I can’t put it in practice myself? But I’ve since realised I do believe in myself. I DO. Writing books has always been my dream, and here I am writing them, aren’t I? Doesn’t that mean I believe in myself enough to try? Damn right, it does!

Do you believe in yourself enough to do something you’ve always wanted to do?

I want everyone to read this book. I want them to know that the road to believing in yourself can be easy, or it can rocky as f#*k, and full of a million obstacles (some of them painful lessons to be learned), but if you truly believe in who you are, you WILL TRY. That is what this book is about. THAT is why I’m releasing it at 99c. I want readers to pick this book up, immerse themselves in the story, and come out of it knowing that they (YOU) need to do something for YOU and believe that you CAN do it. Or at least believe in yourself enough to try. Because that is all we can do, and I’m a damn sight prouder saying that I tried, rather than saying I gave up at the first hurdle because that hurdle was a bit high and I couldn’t quite get my short, stubby legs over it.

And now that I’ve finished sounding like a motivational speaker, I will leave you alone to enjoy your day/night, and tell you to get your copy now. It’s a special release price only and won’t stay 99c for long.

Much love
Kate xo

Prologue – The End Game

I’m deep into edits with The End Game and looking forward to announcing the release date once the book gets to my editor. After an extended 6 month leave from writing, this book has been a long time in coming! It is a lengthy book so be prepared for this read to take some time!
Thanks to you all for your patience. For those interested, I’ve attached the prologue below (UNEDITED) for a special preview. Hope you all enjoy it. I CANNOT WAIT to share Brody and Jordan’s journey with you, and it is just that. An epic journey full of great high’s and the worst of lows, but through it all their love for each other never wavers, and their strength and determination have inspired me.
Love Kate xo
