Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes …

Remember when I said my publisher changed? Yeah? Of course, you do. Due to this change, my books are NOT available in a paperback version from any overseas site. Waiting for it to happen is futile. There are NO plans to make The Byte Series paperbacks available overseas. Remember I am a kiwi. Overseas is EVERYWHERE that is not New Zealand. 🙂

If you like reading paperbacks you can purchase them from Writers Plot Bookshop. 

Writers Plot website has a gorgeous shopping cart and Paypal.

When I say they are ONLY available from Writers Plot Bookshop, I mean it. The decision was made to stay away from Amazon with my paperbacks. Why? A few reasons but the biggest is that they allow 3rd Party Sellers to flog off authors books at whatever price they see fit … but (for mine at least) I can find nothing that says those books were purchased from Amazon (or anywhere else) via my former publisher. That means there was no royalty payment. So how exactly are these 3rd Party Sellers getting the books they’re selling? I have no idea! How are they allowed to sell books and cut the author out completely? Again no fucking clue. But I will not be part of this shitty scheme. So, my books are available from New Zealand. And ONLY NEW ZEALAND. For absolute clarity, they are ONLY available from Writers Plot bookshop. Should you see them anywhere else, please do not purchase them. They are not authorized copies, I have not and do not receive any royalty when they’re sold.

Digital versions of my books are available from all good digital retailers. But not all of my books are available from Amazon. Some have been reformatted and are available, for example: Eraserbyte, Psychobyte, Metabyte. Qubyte is available on Amazon. The first six novels are not yet available. Mostly because I don’t have the files for Flashbyte, Soundbyte or Databyte. I didn’t have the files for Eraserbyte, Psychobyte or Metabyte either, so had to find the last edit I did have for those files, cross my fingers and format those. It’s a little bit frustrating and annoying.

On the plus side, you can buy them all in ePub from ePub distributors everywhere. Why? Because Smashwords allows publishers to revert rights to the author and Amazon does not.

Volume Three!

This was supposed to happen last February but it didn’t (remember how my publishing life turned upside down last year?). I’ve spent the last few days trying to find original files and whatnot to make this happen now.

There was much stress. Much blue air. Twice I had to start again with various files. But, this morning, on the last day of my holidays … we have success!

The byte Series Volume Three lives! And look how pretty!

It is available for pre-order across most platforms (not Amazon though, we’re holding off there, for now, mobi versions can be purchased from Smashwords) over the next day or so. I’ll share links as I find them. For now here’s the Smashwords link: The byte Series Volume three

I love the cover, I love these three books, and I especially love the story ‘heard it through the grapevine’, hope you do too.

Massive sale and Merry whatever to you my friends!

The entire Byte Series is heavily reduced (killerbyte is free) until New Years Day, on Smashwords.

Here are is the link you need to take advantage of this:

The Byte Series.  

Also, the In between byte stories are heavily reduced (in most cases free).

Here is the link to those! In between bytes.

Get in there, folks! The latest Byte Novel – Qubyte releases on Dec 30th! You want to be up with the play before that drops, so you know the buzz is about. 🙂

Trust me. I’m a professional.

News

Howdy!

So this is the first announcement regarding Qubyte.

We have a launch date!! 

Dec 31st 2018. Yep, New Years Eve. How awesome is that?

The next announcement will be the cover reveal, that’s a little way off yet.  At the moment I’m reading before I fire this manuscript back to my editor for another look. Once the edits are done and dusted, it’ll be format time. Dec 31st will be the official launch date but Qubyte will only be available in digital formats on that day, unless a miracle happens and I manage to get the bookblock ready for print. Don’t count on it! The plan there is to coincide the paperbacks with the physical launch (at some stage) and have the books printed in Auckland like the rest of the series. That means paperbacks will be available from Writers Plot bookshop here in NZ (we do have online sales so I’m sure the rest of the world will cope). I have zero interest in having the paperbacks on Amazon but who knows? Never say never, right?

Hi, I’m Cat …

Hi, I’m Cat.

I’m a writer. Good chance you’ve heard a whisper about my work. This is the place where you’ll find reviews, links, contact info, information about my work, competitions, and other bits and pieces. There are videos on various pages (turn your sound on).

FYI my books (individually) are cheaper than a good coffee, so, you have nothing to lose. You can read while drinking a coffee. I prefer to read while drinking a good tequila but whatever.

A few questions I get asked a lot;

Why Thriller writing? Thriller writing wasn’t a choice, it’s just the warped way my mind works. Easier to go with it than fight it.

Where can we find you? My work is available worldwide (at all good booksellers), you can find me at Writers Plot which is a unique bookshop that stocks ONLY Kiwi authors.

Who is Romeo? He’s my rescue Greyhound. He hangs out at home with his pals, Missy the fat gray cat, and the guinea pigs Bucky and Timmy.

What’s in the silver case?  Body parts … I’m not even going to try and explain that, on the plus side I removed the M9 from the case.

What are you working on now? I’m writing the 11th-byte novel, Cryptobyte. I’m also working on a screenplay.

Do you have an Everipedia page? Super excited to say I do have an everipedia page. Big thanks to Pete Turner on the Break it down show. 🙂

If you follow me on social media (and you really should) just be aware that some days my social filter doesn’t quite kick in at all, if I think it, I’m liable to say it … don’t say you weren’t warned.

Until recently I was published by Rebel ePublishers, USA, they’ve now closed so I’m publishing under 9mm Press and part of The Renegade Guild.
