SPOTLIGHT ON: KateMarie Collins
How did you get involved in the Authors Supporting Our Troops event?
A friend shared it on their page, and I thought it was a great thing to do!
What is your latest release and what genre is it?
I write fantasy. My last release was a collection of short stories (A Stab at the Dark, Looking at the Light). I’ve got a fantasy/romance novella coming out in spring 2014 titled “Fin’s Magic”.
Quick description of it.
Another thrilling story by the international best-selling author of “Mark of the Successor”!
Fin depends on her companions to keep her safe…and out of chains. As one of the Amari, the only race that can harness magic, she longs for a normal life. One where she didn’t have to constantly look over her shoulder, and she could fall in love.
Alaric fell hard for Fin from the moment he laid his eyes on her three years ago. He swore an oath to keep her safe, even if it meant his life. But he knew that any relationship he could hope to have with her would be on her terms.
When a king offers them the chance at a normal life, Fin’s cautious. And rightly so, as there are others who think she’s the one to lead the Amari from a life of slavery.
Something unique about it.
It’s not straight fantasy or romance. I also believe that the romantic pair should stay in love once they realize it. None of this does he love me why isn’t she nicer to me fluff. Once they know it, they stay true to each other.
Links for people to buy it.
It’s not out yet, but there will be a pre-sale on Smashwords soon! Just waiting on the cover art!
