Drum up the Dawn on Women and Words

I had the opportunity to guest blog today at the fabulous Women and Words about activism, police brutality, Supercorp, and my new F/F urban fantasy, Drum up the Dawn. Check it out if you get a chance. BLACK LIVES MATTER!

Women and Words

I don’t have to tell you that the first half of 2020 has been rougher than any recent year in memory—and that’s saying something in these seemingly apocalyptic times of increasing authoritarianism and devastating climate change. We started the year with wildfires in Australia, locusts in Africa, and Kobe’s helicopter crash, but even these events were soon overshadowed by the COVID-19 global pandemic. In the US, since March, more than 100,000 Americans have died while schools and businesses have closed and unemployment has skyrocketed. When a video of a white Minneapolis police officer brutally murdering George Floyd, a Black man, went viral a couple of weeks ago, we seemed as a nation to hit our collective wall.

Just as generations of Americans have done before us, we are now taking to the streets to express our outrage, sorrow, and frustration over the deep-rooted systemic racism in America that leads our…

    I tried to buy it but it’s not available in Brazil, that’s so sad, I was really interested in buying it. Do you have other options for buying it?

    I absolutely LOVED Drum Up the Dawn! I bought it shortly after its release and I keep looking for book 2 (or 3 or 4 – no pressure) but I’ve not seen any timeline. Do you have an idea about when we’ll be able to buy it?

    • Hi Kelly! Thanks for the note. So glad you enjoyed Drum Up the Dawn. I’m actually working on the sequel currently, Between the Dawn and Day. It’s about half-done, possibly a little more, though I am considering splitting it up into two shorter novels (70-80K words) instead of one massively long book. My goal is to get something out in November–fingers crossed! Have you joined my mailing list? I’ll be sending the first chapters, cover, and a giveaway chance there very soon. Thanks again for your interest in my books. Happy almost Halloween! -KJC

        Thanks Kate. I just subscribed to your mailing list. If you decide that you are going to break it into 2 novels I hope that you don’t have a cliffhanger (unless the books are just a month apart or so). My heart couldn’t take it! 😆

      • Haha, I literally just told my wife I was thinking of doing a cliffhanger, just to be evil! But I promise, I’ll only do that if the release is close together. Muahahaha (evil laugh)…

    • Hi again Kelly. Book 2 is available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback, if you’re still interested in picking it up! And no evil cliffhanger to worry about… 🙂

      • Kelly Buchanan says:

        Thanks Kate! I just read it and I’m excited to read book 3! This is turning into a great series. Being from Seattle (though now on Whidbey) it’s an especially fun read!

      • Wow–fantastic! Apparently the mailing list works. Thanks for the support and enthusiasm. I’m working on book 3, though I am also thinking about finishing my queerification of Austen’s Emma. Any votes on which I tackle first? Also, Whidbey is beautiful. Cheers, fellow PNWer!

      • Kelly Buchanan says:

        Galaxy Girl!! Don’t leave us hanging!😁

      • That’s what my wife said, too! I’m looking at cover art for Ends of the Earth (GG book 3) right now. That’s my usual window into the next project, so… I’ll keep you posted! 🙂
