Beware the Kitty Maths!

Dear Friends,

Just dashing off a quick newsletter, as we’re in the final throes of pushing Playing with Fire out the door and into the world. Our ARC team has been very helpful, giving us feedback and pointing out errors. Thank you to all! We’ll be pushing out a final ARC this week, and then doing at all again later this year for the next book.

While our author had her nose stuck in books, the cats have been up to things. Naughty things. And now some kitty maths have occurred. We went from this in December: (Stormy and Ginger)

Merry Catmas

To this recently: (Sofia, Princess, Oscar, and Sonny)

Kitty baby love

Now everything’s blooming kitties, and the author can brag that she has more cats than Black Kat herself. But somehow, she still didn’t end up with an actual black cat. Nevertheless, you may even find one of these cuties in the pages of next book….(grin.)

And honestly, who can adult these days? Give me a good book anytime! And you shall have one soon! Playing with Fire will be out in the next two weeks across all storefronts. First on Amazon, and then to the rest, simply because some of the others required longer lead times for the finalized version and we wanted to upload them all at once.

 Need something to read in the meantime? Keep reading, there’s plenty of great picks down below!

Black Kat IV: Playing with Fire

Firefighter Shane Sumner has a secret. He’s not the brave, hometown hero everyone thinks he is. He’s fireproof, and possibly crazy, or telepathic. Now the dog is talking to him, along with the plants, threatening to upend his sham of a perfect life. Can he conceal his strange abilities or will they expose him for the freak he knows he is? 

 One hot mess deserves another…Life isn’t easy for a fire shifter. Fiona and Aislinn’s powers keep them homeless and just might have burnt down the Denver safe house. The streets are full of Rogues and unsavory characters. Their chances of survival look bleak, but a handsome, flame-retardant stranger may be the answer to all their problems.

 And where, oh where has Hugh gone?

Kat struggles to find the answers while chasing a boatload of Rogues. Join Kat Hugh, Dale, Jacob and the rest of the gang as the adventure continues!

The Shadow Project by Cecilia DominicFAE SERIES: THE SHADOW PROJECT

On the same day she agrees to help smoke out a traitor on a team of scientists, an invisible shifter attacks her in her supposedly ultra-secure home and a teleporting kitten adopts her.

After discovering a shadowy manipulator is intent on seeing her fail, Reine must confront a deadly conspiracy that reaches into the Fae realm and could spell the end for her kind. Can Reine unmask a sinister cabal before she loses her ticket home…or her life?
