The big news hit social media on Monday that I’m writing a m/f contemporary romance series that centers around a cat cafe for Sourcebooks. And despite Monday being April Fool’s Day, I promise this is not a joke!
Whitman Street is a fictional street I created that is in Brooklyn, kind of in the Boerum Hill/Cobble Hill area (like the western end of Atlantic Avenue, basically). A lot of you are probably like, “Where?” but the major takeaway is that I’m writing a series that is very neighborhood-centric, so it’s like a small-town romance, just set in Brooklyn.
If you’re playing at home, you might be like, “Kate, you seem to have a lot of books coming out.” And you would be right!
So, it’s very unlikely I will have any other new books coming out in 2019, because I have so many books coming out in 2020 and 2021 and I still have to write a lot of them. The schedule is roughly this:
This summer: I’ll be reissuing Save the Date, which was a novella originally published by Loose Id that has been out of print for about a year. Save the Date is a romantic comedy about a guy who needs a date for his ex’s wedding. I’ve expanded it about 10,000 words. (Cover art and a fresh edit are still pending.)
Spring/Summer 2020: The Elite Athletes Series. This is a m/m sports romance series set at the Olympics.
Fall 2020 and into 2021: The Whitman Street series. (I don’t have firm pub dates on those.)
Spring/Summer 2021: The Restoration Series, which is a m/m trilogy about people who are on home renovation shows on a TV cable network (that is not HGTV).
I have myself on a pretty tight schedule to get all these books written on time, but I’m VERY excited about all of it.
