A Kiss of Treason teaser quote #1

Briand and Kael are both struggling with their feelings for each other in this A Kiss of Treason. Briand is so passionate and untrusting, which makes sense given her years with her uncle and the things she'd experienced since. It's going to take her some time to rebuild a sense of worth and strength, although I think she's making progress. She still has a lot to learn about confidence, and she is quick to take a place of self-loathing still.

And Kael tries so hard to keep his feelings from showing. Everyone assumes he doesn't have any. Sometimes the stillest waters hide the deepest feelings.

Cover Reveal for A KISS OF TREASON

Hello everyone!

Ready to see the cover for A Kiss of Treason (the Kingmakers' War book #3)?


...

...

...



And here's the summary again:

Following another successful mission with Kael and his company, Briand is torn between two choices--should she disappear to protect herself or stay with her friends, even though she is not a Monarchist?

When she and Kael are arrested as spies and taken to the prince's secret court for trial, everything becomes even more complicated... the Seeker Auberon continues to hunt her in her dreams, Briand's feelings for Kael--and his for her--torment them both as they struggle to trust each other in the midst of secrets and conflicted political loyalties, and then there's a traitor among the nobility who has attempted to assassinate the prince.

And some people seem to think that traitor might be Kael.



I'm not sure the exact release date yet, but like me on Facebook or keep checking this blog for more details. If you want to be sure to notified of the release, sign up for my New Releases Newsletter, as I'll send one out with links when it's available!

Update for the Kingmakers' War book #3!

Hello dear readers!

I know, more radio silence from me lately. :-/ And I intended to be more interactive. I still do. And I am writing. Slowly, painfully at times, but I'm writing. I am 36.5 weeks pregnant and I'm sooooooo tired. I feel like an elephant in quicksand. But I'm regularly beaching myself in front of my manuscript and chipping away.

Here's the details on the upcoming book:

I'm almost done. I've been derailed a few times by some extremely extenuating and unfortunate life circumstances, but I have my eyes fixed on the finish line.

When will the book be released? This is a GREAT question. I am having a baby in 2.5 weeks (ohmygoodness), so probably not by then. (I can dream, though.) But soon. I've got a lot of things lined up and I plan to work whenever I can. Sometime in September is my goal, but definitely as early as possible. I know people have been waiting a long time, and I'm impatient for you all to read it!

In the meantime, I have a timeline and I will endeavor to follow it.

I'll:

-announce the title and summary tomorrow
-reveal the cover before the end of the week
-teasers coming down the pipe periodically

Since I'm about to have a baby, I'm going to have a lot less time to do any kind of promotion for this book, but I want readers to know it's out. So. I might come up with something--a contest, maybe--for those who might be interested in helping spread the word. Stay tuned for that.

Thank you all for reading and enjoying my books and the characters who inhabit them. You inspire me to keep working.

Briand and Kael will be here soon, I promise.

News and Updates

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry it's been so long since I made any kind of update about the progress of my next book, #3 in the Kingmakers' War series. I've been on a hiatus of sorts due to a sudden and very urgent medical situation in my immediate family. The circumstance is still ongoing and will be indefinitely, but I'm trying to return to work now. I feel a bit scattered still, but I'm here.

I originally hoped to release book #3 (I have a title and a cover, and I plan to reveal those things soon!) in June, but you know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men. I'm now hoping for August.

However, between now and then I'll do my best to update you all with a few tidbits about Briand and Kael to tide you over.

Other news!

Frost (The Frost Chronicles #1) is on sale for Prime Day. If you haven't read it or know someone who hasn't but might like to, you can get your Kindle copy here!

Also, on Thursday (7/13) I'll be participating in a Facebook read-along for Julia Hall's Life After series to celebrate the newest release in the series. I'll be giving away some books and interacting with people at 8 PM EST, so come and check that out.

Finally, I thought I would dedicate the latest Kingmaker book to a reader. I will get a contest set up for that soon, so if you'd like to see your name on the dedication page, be watching for that. I think it's going to be a "spread the word" sort of thing--I'll probably put A Gift of Poison on sale and you'll be able to enter by sharing a link to that in some form or writing a short blurb about it on social media.

Thank you all for being lovely and patient. Talk to you again soon.

New Kael Book!

Hi everybody!

Sorry for the months of radio silence. I've been sick since December and it's made writing difficult. But I'm feeling much better now, and I have a surprise!

I know a lot of you are waiting on the next Kingmakers' War book. That is coming soon, hopefully in May. But for now, I've just released another book I'd been working on (partly as research for the rest of the series) from Kael's perspective.

Tip of the Dagger takes place between A Gift of Poison and A Bed of Blades. The story is told in Kael's perspective and follows some of his adventures during the time Briand was with the Hermit. It provides a little insight into this inscrutable man's feelings about the dragonsayer, his relationship with his father, and his loyalty to the true prince.



You can find that book here on Amazon!

In other news, I am working on book 3 in the Kingmakers' War series and also some other projects. Thank you all for reading! I love it when you message me about my books, it gives me energy to keep writing. :)

The Darkest Day in the Frost is here!

Hi everyone,

My holiday surprise anthology is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble for Nook readers.

I enjoyed revisiting Lia, Briand, and Aemi for these holiday stories, and I hope you guys enjoy seeing them again too. All of the stories can be read by anyone, so even if you haven't read the Secrets of Itlantis series or the Frost series or the Kingmakers' War series, you won't find spoilers or be confused about previous plot elements.



Here's the summary:


Return to the world of the Frost (and other fantasy worlds) in this fantasy holiday anthology!

This short story collection contains three stories by Kate Avery Ellison, set in her fantasy series the Frost Chronicles, the Kingmakers' War, and Secrets of Itlantis.

"The Darkest Day in the Frost" - Lia Weaver and her siblings are struggling to survive after the death of her parents. But someone is watching out for her.

"The White Doe of Winterval" - Briand meets the new castle steward, Kael, on the eve of the winter holiday Winterval.

"The Last Sacrifice" - Aemi schemes to get her mother a necklace to wear for the Lighting ceremony. Nol tries to stop her.


Hope you all enjoy!

~Kate
