Today's video is a special one. I had the pleasure of being the guest of the inaugural episode of the Urban Fantasy PH podcast run by my good friend CJ Edmunds. In this episode, we talk about creativity, Stephanie Meyer and Midnight Sun, how to get rid of writer's block, how I bake when stressed, what I think about inspiration, and my great love for yaoi, boys love, and shounen anime. This podcast takes a funny turn and you will learn a lot about me. I hope that you enjoy it:

Happy October, Everyone!

It's Tidbit Thursday and boy do I have a tidbit for you. My first YA novel in hardcover with a Filipina main character is coming out from Swoon Reads on July 3, 2018. I know that is still a ways away, but there are things you can do today to stay updated.

First, you can add TBB to your Goodreads TBR: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35796027-the-boyfriend-bracket

Second, you can read the excerpt that I have published on Wattpad. The Boyfriend Bracket is the perfect "big brother's best friend" love story. Here is the full description:

Stella has had a hopeless crush on Will, her older brother's best friend FOREVER, but now that Cam and Will have graduated and are going off to college, this year is her chance to really strike out on her own. Without her overprotective brother and his sidekick around to distract her, she can focus on having all the typical high school experiences that she's always dreamed of—starting with finding a boyfriend! With the help of her best friend Franklin, she comes up with the perfect plan to have a boyfriend by Christmas: The Boyfriend Bracket.

Or it seems like the perfect plan...right up until Will starts showing up again. How is she supposed to find the perfect boyfriend when none of her dates measure up to the one boy she can never have?

This TBB has a strong fashion designer main character and a swoonworthy online comic book artist. The story has something for everyone. Please help me spread the word about this book by telling your friends.

If you have any questions or just want to connect, hit me up.

Also, please stay tuned for a pre-order giveaway exclusive and an ARC giveaway coming your way.

Best,
Kate

And the winning cover for THE BOYFRIEND BRACKET is...

Is it wrong that as I was writing this book I was already imaging the possible covers? I couldn’t help myself. I would be in class, sitting at my desk while my students wrote out their own stories, daydreaming about the cover for this book. Then the day came when five beautiful covers made their way into my inbox. One of the best emails ever!


Even before I opened each file attachment I knew I was in good hands. Doesn’t Swoon Reads provide the best cover voting options? It was so hard to choose. And I was glad I didn’t have to do the choosing.

Every day of the voting was a total nail-biter for me. Which one? Which one?

Well, the community has spoken! I’m happy to announce that the winning cover by an overwhelming vote is…


The Rainbow Cover!

I can’t believe it. The Boyfriend Bracket finally has a cover. Add it to your Goodreads TBR today! Thank you to the ever supportive and ever-growing Swoon Reads community for helping pick the best cover. Now let the daydreams of holding and sniffing the finished product commence!
