A New Look for Kate Reid

It's a new year, so why not start it off with a brand new look and a fresh take on the first books in my Kate Reid series. And that's exactly what I did!

I've been toying around with the idea of making over books one and two for a while. They were, after all, when I first introduced you to Kate Reid. Can you believe that was almost three years ago? I can't. I was eh-hem, young (okay--younger) and just being introduced to the world of indie publishing. I worked a full-time job, was raising my two young children and decided I wanted to give my dream a chance.

And I haven't looked back since. Now, writing is my full-time job and just last year, I created my own publishing imprint, HARP House Publishing. I have eight books under my belt, and a super-secret non-fiction book about a great American company (maybe not that secret) which will be published by Barricade Books later this year. So, it's been full steam ahead for me.

That was why I thought now was the right time to take another look at my old friend, Kate Reid. I've learned a lot since she first came into my life and she deserved a fresh perspective. So, over this busy holiday season, when I probably should have been spending time with my family, I instead re-examined books one and two in the series (formerly, Redwood Violet and All the Shiny Things) and hacked my way through it. Sometimes with the precision of a surgeon's blade and sometimes with a hatchet! What I was left with was a taut thriller that while still very familiar, is more succinct and polished. And with the help of my fantastic cover artist, (thanks Laura) we gave Kate a brand new cover that stays true to the crime thriller genre in which the series falls.
