I DID IT!! And still am....

Howdy Tweeps, Peeps and Creeps!

I haven't posted on here in a while....sorry about that! I'm a busy, crazy lady and had a lot going on. Still do actually, so let me get you all up to speed.

As of yesterday, I officially became a published author! *bows* Thank you, thank you. Yup, I finally finished the #TwitterNovel called Birds of a Feather. After MONTHS of work and edits and thanks to a wonderful publisher, Birds of a Feather is now for sale on Amazon! Check out Kindle Books at Amazon and you'll find me in there!

Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Birds-of-a-Feather-ebook/dp/B00AR8CX4G/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1356190610&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=Birds+of+a+Feather+by+Kara+Stefanowich

I would like to take a moment to thank the publishers, Jim Scott and Derek Semmler at Teague Publishing for all their hard work. I'd also like to thank them for doing what every new author has been wishing for, for so long. For giving us a chance to be seen and read. (They're probably editing this paragraph as they read this....LOL!!)

Teague Publishing actually found ME online. With LITTLE persuasion I submitted my work to them after submitting it to countless other traditional publishers with little luck. Teague Publishing was quick to say, "We'd like to publish you." and give me a chance to show the world what I can do. I'm afraid, in this dying economy, I may not have ever had this chance without Teague Publishing. So thank you. I appreciate your tolerance and hard work more than you could ever know. I hope I do well, not only for myself but also for you, to help launch YOU into further success as well.

On a separate note, Teague Publishing is now working on my SECOND book! That's right, I have more! LOL!! The second one is quite different from the first. I know most writers tend to stick with one genre, but if you know me at all, since WHEN have I ever followed a straight road?

The next book to be released is a Paranormal Romance filled with action, mystery, magic and of course....*grins*...sex! So keep your eyes peeled! I'll be slapping you all with it before you know it!

I hope you all have a great weekend! And if I don't blog again before the holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!!

Good News

Happy to say I FINALLY heard from my publisher today who told me they are beginning to edit 'Birds of a Feather' !! Yay!!

I'm happy they were able to get some additional help. Sometimes business gets too good too fast then you can't keep up so it all falls apart. Fortunately they managed to catch it!

So...... Yay!! :)

Thoughts?

I've been thinking.....

After working on my biography for, oh, I dont know, a MILLION years now.... I realized that I'd left a LOT out. The reason for leaving so much out was because, everyone would know who they were in the story. And it wouldn't be a pretty turn out. The truth never is.

So I got to thinking, what if I change my name for the Non Fiction stories and keep my real name for the Fiction...?? Hmm?? What do you all think?

This way I can 'Tell All' and not have to deal with the inevitable aftermath. The story of my life is a long series of adventures, heartbreak, devestation and unbelievable excitement. Putting the whole story together would give you all a much better picture of adventure, death, tragedy, catastrophy and utter chaos. You know, life. A life you'll never believe actually took place.

This change would also give me the freedom to tell stories of other people's lives without disrespecting them or robbing them of their honor. I think its a win-win. :)

Penny for your thoughts?

NEWS

I'm happy to announce that I've signed a second contract for a second book! YAY!! Thanks to @TeaguePubs (check them out on Twitter and on their website http://www.teaguepublishing.com/ ) I hope to have at least one of the two books out for sale as an E-Book soon!

The first book is called 'Hostage'. Its a Paranormal Romance about a heavy metal band that is more than they appear....much more! When they meet the ever jaded Ivy Stone they find the perfect addition to their band. But will she stay with the band once she's learned their dirty little secret?

Oh, and don't let the genre of 'Paranormal Romance' fool you. This story is not for the faint of heart. This graphic novel has many levels of sin and crime, so pour a glass of wine, lock your doors and put the kids to bed! It will leave you on the edge of your seat.

The second book is called 'Birds of a Feather'. Its a Suspenseful Romance that will leave you wanting more with every chapter's end! Two assassins hired to kill each other soon find themselves in each others arms and running from their own Agencies! But the job they were hired to do was far more complex than either of them knew. Will they escape the tyrant hands of villainy or will they survive to fight another day?

This is NOT another James Bond story. This one will make you laugh, cry and grip your sheets till your knuckles turn white! This book is a cover to cover read! And who knows....maybe they're will be a sequel ;)

You can find excerpts of both stories in some of my earlier entries in this blog! Go take a look! I hope you like it! :)
