Shadow Talkers – Episode 6 #beanboozled

Here it is 2018 and I must say we are off to an amazing and wickedly fun start. so what better way to start the year off than to play a silly taste test game with my bestest of buddies, Jenna Mclean.

Not really sure what I was in for, I sidled up to the the table, sat down and got ready for the game. Wow, and what a game it was.  Come check out the video to see why.

Cheers, Kade

End of Year Reflection… #TCOS

As 2017 fades out and draws to a close, I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on how far I have come with this crazy idea of being an indie author.

Well, let us see…

With determination or stubbornness, I am not sure which, I managed to write and edit (thank you Kayla Krantz and Michelle King) the second book in the TCOS series. After a bumpy start, we finally pulled it all together and I managed to upload it on Amazon… that is after I fought with the online demons that hexed the create space app and nearly drove me to tears. But I listened to a friend who said sometimes it is easier to scrap it all and start over from scratch. Very smart girl she is…

Next, the Center I wished to book my physical launch was not available nor would it be for what seemed like decades, (not really but when you want what you want and it is not happening I tend to get a bit dramatic, 😛 ) and so I lucked out and the community emergency center had an opening which I quickly snatched up and began my preparations.

On November 24th, a wonderful friend of mine, an amazing YA&SciFi author, John Winston, joined forces to bring the world our duel releases, IA:Union and CALICO, which was a wonderful venture and one I look forward to doing again. Thank you John.

On Nov 26th, the launch was held and so many beautiful souls came out to help me celebrate the birth of CALICO. It was an amazing night and so to all of you who took the time to be there, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The following weekend, I took part in two craft fairs where I was welcomed with open arms, many smiles and tons of incredible questions…I even got a few hugs out of it, and a few new friends as well.

At the beginning of December , myself and a few amazing authors decided to join the group Books4ANewGenerationChristmasEvent and donate a portion of sales, throughout the entire month of December, towards a much needed Charity called Reach- a program designed to help many people who are in need of prosthetic limbs. I very much am pleased to be part of this even though I was unable to do more online and interactive participation due to circumstances beyond my control but my heart was there with them and so is my donation.

Somewhere within all the writing and the editing of Book two of TCOS, I found an amazing voice that was willing to be part of my supernatural world, and sign on to help me create the audiobook of GREY. Now finished and uploaded on the Amazon, Audible and ITunes platforms…GREY is alive and waiting for all to discover it. What an incredible thrill to hear another speak the words you have written and portray them as they sounded in your head.

And so here we are, as the few moments quickly slip away and bring us closer to a new year, it allows us the opportunity to make a clean start, or if you are pleased like I am of how this year ended up an opportunity to push harder, to make more connections on the path I am traveling, to strengthen the already forged bonds that have been made and dream a little bigger, to climb a little higher on the mountain I call my future and to embrace every challenge that comes my way, to face it head on and to overcome them, as this time next year I can reflect once again to see how far I have come, living to dream and dreaming of the limitless skies filled with opportunity this new found world has brought me.Newyears

So I say to all of you, take a quick moment to reflect. Ask yourself if you are further along or still waiting on things to be perfect before you take the steps toward what you dream of…just a word of warning to all who have delayed…time waits for no one so don’t delay too long.

Lastly, I want to take this moment and say THANK YOU to all the beautiful and generous people who bought a book, e-book or audiobook of the TCOS Realm, your patronage means more to me then you will ever understand. You are my inspiration.

I wish you all well and many blessings this turning of the year. I will catch you on the flipside…Big hugs and bigger dreams. Cheers from the Shadows, K

Naz has lost everyone that he loves. And while he may have found refuge and pause at International Academy, he has found no peace and certainly no answers. All that he knows calls to him from the streets of the Exclave and Union High School where he reunites with friends and mentors.

Naz struggles, unsuccessfully, to put the pieces of his shattered life back together again—until D comes into his world and changes everything. She helps him put things into perspective, see things he couldn’t see before and remember things he had all but forgotten.

But when D goes missing, it will take more than Naz’s newly found abilities to discover her whereabouts, rescue her, and bring her unlikely captor to justice. Will he reach her in time?
