A Man in Winter is mentioned in Schlock!

A Critically Acclaimed Author

I try not to mention every time A Man in Winter gets a mention on another website. But today I am gushing because it is the first time I’ve been referred to as a critically acclaimed author.

I’ve had the absolute privilege of being a part of more than one award-winning anthology, but that horrible little voice that so many of us have, also known as imposter syndrome, always says it was me riding the coattails of much better writers. This is the first time I feel like I’ve earned that title on my own.

So I’m totally gushing.

I’m on Lou’s Reviews!

I was very privileged to spend some time on The Writers series on Lou’s Reviews YouTube Channel.

We had a lovely conversation. Can’t wait to go back someday 🙂

Hopefully without the interruption from the furry buttheads who live in my house XD

Also as a childish aside, lookit it’s me on a screen talking about writer stuff, teenage Kate would be super proud.

English Cyriptids with Author Katie Marie

Today’s guest post is by Author Katie Marie.

My name is Katie and I am a horror enthusiast and writer from Norfolk, England. 

I have had the privilege of being published in several anthologies and magazines, and my Novella A Man in Winter was released by Brigids Gate Press last year. 

I started writing while studying at Aberystwyth University in the early 2000’s and several years later I received my Masters Degree and have published many short stories, a couple of novels and novella.” -Katie Marie

I’d like to thank Katie for doing such a wonderful job with this article! -Alyanna

I’ve lived in rural areas of England and Wales all my life, growing up in a small town in Wiltshire, before moving to the slightly larger Welsh Town of Aberystwyth, before moving over Norfolk way where I am now. I’m a country lass, and while I can’t butcher my own pig or help birth a calf, I have picked up a fair few of the country tales.

I’ve kept a few under my hat that I’d like to share with you today.
