Katherine McIntyre (2)

So, I decided to join in on the Patreon wagon! Mostly because I LOVE sharing my creativity with people, but my bills are also not paid on dreams alone! This is the link for my Patreon if you’d like to come and support: HERE!

I have 7 different levels of patronage, starting at Sleepy Kittens!

Access to sneak-previews of my latest work, plus cat pictures! (Who doesn’t love cat pictures?)

The later levels include awesomeness including TEA and SIGNED PAPERBACKS, but there are limited quantities of those tiers, so check ’em out fast!

What story I’m currently working on:

Well…I FINISHED THE WANDERERS! And now I have a sad, because it’s over and I just loved it so much. This story was just everything to me, and I want to keep living in their world and writing their next adventure ;_; Next on my writing agenda is the fae novella I have due at the end of May, and probably another Cupid’s Cafe story.

What I’m editing/marketing: Come March, I’ll have line edits in abundance, so that is a yay. The Take to the Skies short is finished from the editor, and so that’s ready for submission to the anthology coordinator. So I’ve finally started delving into The Airship Also Rises, because I now have that and Musketeer Pirates to edit. The Wanderers is now out with beta readers and getting feedback! Also, Gaslights and Graves is now available for pre-order! Nab a copy now!

Line of the week:

Riley slumped down beside him on the stoop like he belonged there, as if their friendship hadn’t shattered into a thousand pieces. As his best friend snagged the pack of cigarettes and pulled one out for himself, Cole’s heart began to beat again.

What story I’m currently working on:

Back to a normal pace with the Wanderers story! I’m hoping to hit 60k by the end of today, but I’m currently at 58k, and I’m hoping to potentially finish the novel by next week. CAN I DO IT? Again, hopefully. I’m usually able to binge write a little more readily closer to the end because the finish line is in sight. And damn, this whole thing unfolded just so perfectly. I adore this story!

What I’m editing/marketing: Both Of Tinkers and Technomancers and A Reflection of Ice are with the line editors now! I’ll be getting both of them in soon, which will be so much fun, and put each of those books that much closer to release day! I’m going to finish editing my Take to the Skies short this week, so I can get it to my editor. I’m almost there, and I’ll be able to reach this deadline just fine. Once I’m finished that, I am switching editing focus solely to The Airship Also Rises, since both of my betas gave their feedback to me. I have a lot of fun releases on the horizon this year! Also, Gaslights and Graves is now available for pre-order! Nab a copy now!

Teaser of the week:

“Because it took a stubborn technomancer willing to risk everything for those she cared about to remind me I was capable of a little daring too.”.jpg

Line of the week:

“Over the river and through the woods.” Bree flashed him a wide grin, her heart racing with the thrill of wandering through the Warrens, nightmare fodder since she was a kid. Anything could pop out at them here, most of it bloodthirsty and wanting them dead. Meaning, she could stab anything that charged their way, and if that didn’t excite her, little did.

“You’re far too chipper for a life-threatening situation.” Jai cast her a glance, even though a hint of a smile tugged at his lips.

What story I’m currently working on:

So, my pace finally slowed, but that’s because I had an event from Friday to Sunday and couldn’t write for 3 days. I hit 44k with the Wanderers story, and I’m hoping to cram in some more today through Sunday to get to 50k by Monday. I’ll be back to chugging away at a faster than average pace, because this story is still flowing out of me just as strong. These characters just CLICK in a perfect way. However, I also finished the Take to the Skies short this week, rounding out at 7k, so, yay! Winning!

 

What I’m editing/marketing:I got my first edits for Of Tinkers and Technomancers in! I am so excited! Soon, we’ll be entering into line edits on both A Reflection of Ice and Of Tinkers and Technomancers, which is all sorts of yay. Still living the waiting life on all of my submissions, and I’ve been refreshing my email like a beast. My one beta finished reading and critiquing The Airship Also Rises, and the other is almost done, so I’ll be editing that soon, and I’ve also got to dive into edits for the Take to the Skies short so I can get it to my editor ASAP.

Teaser of the week:

Wistful notes spoke of loneliness, as solitary as the final birdsong of autumn or the trill of summer_s last cicada before the wintry freeze.

Line of the week:

Cole buzzed with adrenaline, stuck at the top of the coaster and waiting for the descent. Riley’s familiar scent, that dark amber of his aftershave, made his chest ache so hard he could barely breathe.

What story I’m currently working on:

My god, what is this pace? I just hit 38k on the Wanderers story, which I’m projecting to be around 70k. I’ll probably flesh it out a little further in the edits, but for a YA urban fantasy, the fast pacing and rapidness of the story just works. I’ve been living and breathing this story the past couple weeks and it’s been the sort of experience that makes me fall in love with writing all over again.

However, I also started another story, because I decided to join in on the steampunk anthology, Corsets and Cogs, which is coming out in the spring! I hit 2k with it yesterday, which is the minimum amount for the set. The maximum is 10k, but I’m projecting it to fall around 5k, which I can finish over the next week. My hope is that by the end of the day today I’ll have hit 3k on this project and 40k on the Wanderers story.

What I’m editing/marketing: I think the beginning of February heralds a lot of the edits I’ve been waiting on, ones for Of Tinkers and Technomancers, as well as line edits for A Reflection of Ice. As for the multiple fulls and manuscripts I have out with agents and publishers, I’m living that waiting life. However, with two boxsets to promote (Corsets and Cogs, as well as Gaslight and Graves–both steampunk!) I’ll be super busy on the marketing front! I’m starting to get beta responses in on The Airship Also Rises, so that will be on my agenda soon 🙂

Teaser of the week:

_Each step forward offered a better view of the crystal walls ahead, the castle appearing like something out of a fairytale._(1)

Line of the week:

“Hey, Pops,” Bree called back down, offering a small wave. He might’ve been furious and disappointed with her the other day, but he wasn’t the sort to hold grudges. Not that she’d forgotten the dressing down. It was always the tiredness in his eyes when he reprimanded her that shredded her to pieces. That was her effect on everyone in the family. They’d all gotten tired of it over the years, her fury, her impulsiveness, her.
