  • Every Month I’m Tumblin’ – May 2014

        Iiiiiiiiiit’s that time again, kids! Let’s see what kind of weird and wonderful things I came across in the merry, merry month of May. 1/ Miranda’s view on makeover shows: [View All] 2/ The majestic deer. [Moar] 3/ Photobomb from beyond the grave. 4/ Angry elk: [Moar] 5/ Historical footage of the last T-Rex […]

  • ‘Divided They Fall’ is FINISHED*!

    * Put the streamers away. It’s only the first draft. I’ve been waiting SO LONG to be able to make this post. Ahem. I FINISHED THE FIRST DRAFT OF DIVIDED THEY FALL LAST NIGHT! You have no idea how freaking happy I am right now. I’m still on a high. Last night, I slept SO […]

  • Every Month I’m Tumblin’ – December 2013 to April 2014

        So I haven’t been keeping up to date with my cross-linking monthly blog posts designed specifically to keep my site active. Oops! Oh well. Here’s some of my favourite Tumblr posts between December 2013 and April 2014. 1/ That one Disney movie… 2/ Game of Thrones / Jeremy Kyle [Moar] 3/ Game of Thrones / […]

  • The Secret Life of Steve Carell

      [Warning: This post contains some spoilers for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty] I can’t sleep on planes. Being a freakishly light sleeper anyway, the constant sound of EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE and occasional roller coaster turbulence moments and people walking up and down the walkway inches from my lolling head, sleep just doesn’t happen. So on the […]

  • ‘Blood of Ages’ Returns to the MCM Expo

    Kier Gill and I will be back at Manchester Comic Con on the 19th & 20th July 2014. I’ll be selling my books; Kier will be selling his comics based on my books. You can buy tickets to the Expo here. We’ll be on table T12 (Here’s a map). Come say hi! We might not say hi […]

  • Get Some SelfControl

    So, for me, it goes like this. I decide to do some writing. I set myself some time to work on a project. I sit down. I open my word processing software of choice. ? Four hours laster, I’m reblogging gifsets on Tumblr or watching YouTube videos. And the writing doesn’t get done, because the […]

  • Music to Write Novels By: Folklore

    Folklore is, in my humble opinion, not that great a game. While it appears to be expansive on first inspection, the progression is actually very linear, and I found the combat elements grew samey very quickly–like MMO grinding without the leveling up. This review can explain it better than I can. Even so, the game itself […]

  • Crisis of Online Identity

    So I’m going through something of an identity crisis at the moment. It’s something that happens to me, oh, about thirty times a day. Every time I log onto Twitter or Tumblr or my Facebook page, I ask myself the question: And I never really know for sure. See, because while my name is Kat […]

  • Extending Deadlines

    Alright, nobody freak out, but I’m pushing back the self-imposed deadline of the first draft of Divided They Fall to mid March. I have been working on this book more-or-less non-stop since November 2013. I need a break. I know people are waiting for this book (which is something that freaks me the fuck out. […]

  • Going on 30

      Next week, I will turn 30. When I was a young girl (a young girl, a young girl), I assumed that 30 was practically dead in terms of age. I assumed 20 was old, when I was 12. 16 was ancient to an 8-year-old. Back when I was 16, scribbling the hilariously bad first […]

Got any book recommendations?
