so of course I am going to brag...but she's more than that. In this explosive business of publishing, with the field as vast and diverse as it is, she won the top
TEN placement in her category, Mystery, with her 2011 Preditors and Editors Award.
This is especially HUGE because her book only went up for voting FOUR days before the deadline...but it STILL zoomed up to number TEN. That's pretty amazing.
She won her 2011 P&E Award for THE LIGHTHOUSE, her very first release with
Muse It Up Publishing, Inc...so this is JUST the beginning.
THE LIGHTHOUSE is an ethereal murder mystery that will grab you from the first sentence and hold on tight until the surprising finalé.
Kat Holmes has proven she is a writing force that'll keep us all on the edges of our seats whether she's writing about ethereal murders, modern day Olympian gods facing today's financial crunch, or developing an alternate world where ice and perpetual cold challenge those who call it home.
But Kat is far from done...in June she is introducing a brand new series, aptly called Hekate's Web Series with it's debut HIDDEN, a
vampire series with its own unique twist on the creatures walking the treacherous nights.
Sometime this coming year, she will also be releasing, in collaboration with me, L.J. Holmes,
myself an author and 2010 P&E Award winner, HER LAST DAY.
Daria awakens on a day that will change the lives of everyone in Pompeii. Through her eyes we live the events...will she be one of the few survivors?
