Happy Friday, y'all! Anyone have fun plans for Labor Day weekend? My kids barely started school, but I'm already looking forward to a three-day weekend. With that being said, I have some exciting news (as well as a book promotion!) to share with you.
But before I share my (happy) news and latest promotion, I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself, especially to those who might be new to my blog. And what better way to get to know me than to play one of my favorite games—THIS or THAT!
THIS OR THAT:
Vacation or Staycation?
I love traveling and planning vacations, so if money and time permits, it’s vacation all the way.
Netflix or Hulu?
It would have to be Netflix for me. I binge-watch way too many shows on Netflix to consider switching to Hulu.
Night or morning?
I’m a night girl. But now that my kids are back in school, I’m slowly programming myself to wake up early and exercise before they leave the house.
Camping or glamping?
Glamping! I love nature, but I also love a good night’s sleep. Beach or mountains? Beach. Give me a good book, some white sand, and the sound of crashing waves, and I'm set!
Cooking or being cooked for?
I’ll be honest, I don’t LOVE cooking. So, any time my husband or one of my kids cooks dinner, I’m so incredibly grateful and happy.
Play or standup show?
Play, and if it’s a musical, even better.
Attend a party or host a party?
Ahh, this is a tricky one. I do love to host parties (and I especially love to plan them) but it is nice to attend someone else’s party and not have to do any of the work, lol.
Ketchup or Ranch?
Ranch! Perfect for dipping.
Board games or video games?
My kids sometimes make fun of how awful I am at video games, so that would be board games for me.
Instagram or Twitter?
Not a huge fan of Twitter, so definitely Instagram.
Pizza or Chinese food?
This is an easy one. I LOVE Chinese food and would choose it over pizza any day.
Laundry or dishes?
Give me the laundry, please.
Chocolate or vanilla?
Do you even have to ask? Of course, it’s chocolate.
Zombies or vampires?
Is this seriously a question? Vampires are way better than zombies.
Guacamole or salsa?
Well, that was fun! You probably know WAY more about me now than you've ever wanted to know, lol. Now, on to my exciting news!
I'm super excited to announce that CATALYST is being made into an audiobook and will release in October!!
Over the years, I've had so many readers ask me when CATALYST would become an audiobook, so I'm incredibly stoked to have an amazing narrator (Victoria Connelly) bring this book to life. I've heard a sample of the book, and y'all, it is AMAZING! She's so good at portraying the emotion on the page. I can't wait for it to be out in the world!
For a limited time, CATALYST (the first book in the Deception Game series) is only $0.99! Grab your copy while you can. Sale ends Tuesday, September 6th. You can purchase your copy HERE.
I'm so grateful to everyone who helped me celebrate the release of UNBREAKABLE. It was a whirlwind of a week/month, but I loved seeing all of the beautiful book pics of UNBREAKABLE all over the internet. Thank you, in particular, to Leandra Wallace, Beth Ellyn Summer, and Tiana Smith for some of those gorgeous book pics (pictured below).
Of course, my release party was a special highlight. I had lots of local friends come out and support me. Here are some of my favorite pics from Launch Week!
I've been busy! In case you missed it, I had the opportunity to chat with other authors during the days/weeks following my book release. On Instagram Live, I was in conversation with Michelle Mason, author of YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN DELAYED. On Facebook Live, I chatted with fantasy author Jamie Dalton. And on The Book Corner, I had the chance to talk about the DECEPTION GAME series with DC Gomez. I was also featured in an author interview on Christina Consolino's website. If you'd like to check out my interviews, you can do so at the links below.
Buy the Book!
Also, it's not too late to grab your copy of UNBREAKABLE! The ebook is available wherever books are sold, and the paperback is available on Amazon. If you want to read the end of this thrilling, unpredictable dystopian saga, then grab your copy today!
Here's What Readers Are Saying About UNBREAKABLE:
"A must-read if you like: feisty, capable heroines; swoon-worthy book boyfriends; futuristic worlds with cool tech; and fast-paced adventures with a crew that has become family. With evocative writing and characters that stick with you after the last page, The Deception Games is a series that dystopian lovers need on their shelf. I'm happy for a terrific conclusion, but sad that it's over!"
"I’ve been waiting for the last book in this series for years and it did not disappoint. I started and finished this in a day. I laughed, I cried… Kristin did it again and I can’t wait to see what she writes next!!"
"Unbreakable is the amazing conclusion to The Deception Game series (my favorite dystopian series ever). Sienna, Trey, Zane and Trina (LOVED getting Trina's POV, btw) all have a voice, and, of course, a gripping journey. Fast-paced, tightly plotted, and characters that'll stay with you forever, Unbreakable is a book you'll never forget."
