Residential Rehab is out now!

Hitting bookshelves today: Residential Rehab! This is book 2 in my Restoration Channel series. (While you’re at it, get Book 1, too!)

Here’s what it’s about:

It’s never too late to try something new.

After a year of mourning, it’s time for Nolan Hamlin to live again. But finding a new place in the world doesn’t happen easily.

Already famous as a designer, Nolan is a shoo-in for a new Restoration Channel show host. The brief is simple—help people who’ve gotten in over their heads with their fixer-uppers—but the costar situation is anything but.

For up-and-coming interior decorator Grayson Woods, working with a veteran like Nolan is a dream come true. For one, he’s young and this could make his career. For two, he’s had a crush on Nolan forever. But while Grayson has plenty of life experience, his résumé doesn’t hold up to Nolan’s. He hopes he can keep up.

Despite clashing design aesthetics and a fifteen-year age difference, Grayson manages to charm Nolan. With the show keeping them in close proximity, it’s only a matter of time before they give in to their growing attraction. It isn’t the life Nolan thought he wanted—but when that life comes calling, he has to make a choice. Is there room in his future and his home for a guy like Grayson?

The Whitman Street Series + Future Publications

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.
