First Blog Post

Hello! My name is Katie Kay and I am 22 years old. I've always been an avid reader and I love stories that have supernatural elements and/or are about romance. Some of my favorite books are the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, anything by Meg Cabot, Keary Taylor, and Samantha Young, the Night World series by L.J. Smith, the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, and The Host by Stephenie Meyer (just to name a few). I'm currently working on my first novel, The District (this is just a working title). It's somewhere between a young adult and contemporary fiction novel. It is surprisingly not about anything supernatural, but is instead a totalitarian action/romance novel. This is weird for me because most of the stories that I've come up with are supernatural romances.

I can't wait for this novel to be done. It's taking a while to write and I haven't even got to editing any of it, but I'm enjoying the journey. Once I've completed it, I'm going to try to send it to the publishers and if that doesn't work out, I'm probably going to try self-publishing. Somehow, some way this novel is going to get published. I'm so excited for that day to come, but for now I'm just going to have to read, write, and sleep.

Amen to anything by Meg Cabot! I'm so happy you have a blog now! Can't wait to someday read The District! You better believe I will be buying copies for everyone I know!

Hahaha thanks! I'm only like 40 pages into writing it, so it's going to be while, but thanks for the enthusiasm!
