Just a little sample from my upcoming release Disturbed Fate. Since I can't show you the cover yet I'll show you a bit of the story itself.
Marc tried to stay on his feet as he slid from the post office towards his shop. The city had been caught off-guard by the snowstorm the night before and the cleaning crew hadn’t gotten to this side of town yet. It was uncommon to have this much snow in late November—it promised nothing good for the rest of the winter.
Next to him, his cat, Isis, didn’t seem to have any problem with the cold or the ice. Which wasn’t surprising. It had been on a day like this that he had found the silly cat to begin with.
Isis lightly jumped onto a pile of snow that was in the way, barely making a dent in the surface. But as Marc tried to step on the same pile his foot went into it up to his knee. He growled. That was going to get cold before he reached the shop he owned. Great.
As he stood still to sweep the snow from his jeans Isis walked further ahead and stopped at the corner of the street.
A few meters away a young Japanese man knelt near some trashcans. He seemed to be talking to something but Marc couldn’t see what it was. Though Isis seemed to be really interested in what was going on. Which left very few options, and whatever it was, it wasn’t food.
The young man stepped away and, indeed, a small white kitten tried to follow him. The young man knelt down and shook his head, talking to the little animal.
Isis stepped forward and the kitten looked their way. It tilted its head and mewled. The young man looked up and tried to flee as he saw Marc.
Marc frowned. He knew this guy. He wasn’t sure where from but he was quite sure that he had seen him before.
Marc held up his hands and tried to smile. “I’m not gonna hurt you. I was just curious what was going on.”
That is the beginning of Disturbed Fate. If you want to be kept up to date about when it comes out and other little bits about the story, you know the drill, I've got a facebook, a newsletter and of course twitter. So follow me if you'd like.
Yep, you read it right, it's free in the Amazon US store, the Kobo store and on Smashwords!
I'm celebrating finishing the whole series and the blog tour of the last book, so here is a present from me to you!
I'm still trying to get it go free in the other Amazon stores and waiting on Smashwords for it to go free on B&N, but for now, you can always get a copy from Smashwords for all different readers.
Once again I've changed some stuff around on the website. Yep, again. As you can see there is a new sidebar -> ->
I also added an about section about... eh, me. And I linked some things here and there on the website like a place where you can now find all the blog tours I've done and a few other tiny changes.
I always feel a bit self indulgent when I change things around on the website, but this time I think it vastly improved the look of the website (also, who doesn't like a moving image with all the pretty covers?).
In other news, I'm running a new blog where I talk about learning Japanese and I'm planning on doing a couple of posts on not just Japanese but also English and Dutch. You can find the blog here: Kia Learns Japanese.
Also, my upcoming story is with the editor and I'm working with a cover designer to create a great cover for Otherkin Spirits 1: Disturbed Fate. Unlike Black Sheep this story is not for the under 18 category as it is a New Adult book which does feature sex. Here is the page for the story: Disturbed Fate.
Last but not least, you can find all the posts I did for the last blog tour here and don't forget to sign up for the give away that Boys on the Brink is so kindly doing, you can win the whole Black Sheep Trilogy in ebook format.
Here are all the blogs that the tour wil pass and on which dates.
Some of the posts will be very interesting and I've had some other fun ideas.

And that's it! Have fun reading!!
I wanted to wait until the print versions were also available but that might take a couple of days longer so I'm just putting this out there now.
Black Sheep: Fighting for a Future and Black Sheep Trilogy (Collection) are both out now!! The idea was to release the collection next month but I'm going to be crazy busy so that isn't going to work, this is good news for you.
Both are available in all the stores they usually are (Amazon, Kobo and Smashwords) and I'm totally loving the cover of the trilogy.
Have fun with them!
