Even if it's just a little bit. I used to bargain w/ myself.... You just have to sit down for one hour-- that's all I'm asking of you today. The art of writing is applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair was once said to me by a very wise person. That, and don't take your reviews too seriously. Not every book you write will be well-loved, liked, or received. It will not be everyone's cuppa. in other words. Be true to yourself. Be honest. Be diligent. And don't publish until you know it's ready-- and publish w/out typos--- so whatever happens-- you can be proud of what you have done.(less)

Interview with Author KateMarie Collins: Guarding Charon

Guarding Charon

1. Your writing contains several series and one or two trilogies. Are the Guardian Books, Guardian Charon and Guardian Amber destined for more?

Yes! I’m working on the 3rd book now, titled ‘Guarding William’. If you’ve read ‘Guarding Amber’, you know who he is! LOL

Gallows Ascending (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: Continuing the saga of tracker and visionary Luke Stone, Book Two of the Stone Quest Series, Gallows Ascending, finds Luke thirteen years after his battle in the desert with black magician Armand Jacobi following two cases: the disappearance of a young boy that is centered in the tiny hamlet that Luke now calls home, and the murder of a prominent politician with whom whose wife, Dr. Bethany Rutledge, Luke is, despite his best efforts against, falling in love. As Luke delves more deeply into each mystery he discovers that the two cases are not only bizarrely intertwined but also entangled in a two hundred year old mystery of accused witchcraft, the murder of an infant, and the grotesque public death by hanging of a beautiful young woman.
