Bound to the Highlander Turns One! #Giveaway

Posted by on 10 October, 2014

Bound to the Highlander, Highland Chiefs book one

Bound to the Highlander, Highland Chiefs book one

Once upon a time there was a girl who had a dream…scratch that. Once upon a time, there was a girl who never thought in a million years anyone would want to read her book. She’s happy to say she was very wrongβ€”it had to happen sometime. *makes note in calendar* πŸ™‚

A year ago today, my debut novel, Bound to the Highlander, was unleashed unto the world. I don’t think I slept for the entire week leading up to it. And what was I doing at the exact moment it went live? Skyping with my brother who was on tour in Afghanistan. He had checked, and sure enough, there ’twas. I recall a moment when we just looked at each other and then a dirty big grin (you know the one–you’ve seen it) spread our across our faces. That was it! The book was live and I couldn’t take it back now.

The next few months were a blur between learning about Amazon algorithms and surviving one star reviews. Two huge highlights would have to be the day the print copies of BTTH arrived at my door and the day it hit #1 for Medieval Historical Romance on Amazon dot com. Yup. Definitely moments to savour.

I’ve met many authors in the romance community along the way and they’ve been helpful, gracious, and mostly, passionate about what they do–my kind of people. Whoever said writing is a lonely business has never attended a Facebook launch party. Which brings me to another point, READERS! You are all amazing. I am thrilled that a reader can finish my book and seconds later send me a message! How feckin’ cool is that??

It’s been an incredible year and I can’t even imagine what the next one will bring. Well I can imagine a couple of things, like sitting on a panel with six other amazing authors in Palm Springs next September. Oh and then there’s book three of this series coming out in November. Those two are definites, but everything else is a moving target and that’s the way I like it.

So, in honour of BTTH’s birthday, I am giving away a signed print set of Bound to the Highlander and the second in the series, Promised to the Highlander, which is hot off the printing press itself! What do you have to do? Leave me a comment here. I’ll select a winner tomorrow. Now where’s the champagne?

    Congratulations Kate. I didn’t realize you had only been at writing for such a short time. I love your books and the print covers are just beautiful. Now that #3 is soon to be released, just wondering what is your next step.

      Next up for me is the novella for two awesome characters from Bound to the Highlander. Gwen and Calum need their story told–seriously they’re driving me nuts. I hope to have a first draft written by Christmas and release it some time in the new year. Wish me luck!
