Lol. I just posted an hour ago. But I'm posting again.
Because I have God and anime on my side.
But I feel so comfortable with you guys, and I'm not quite sure if it's because y'all aren't commenting as much and therefore feel like no one reads these or because I've realized something cool over the past few months.
A lot of people (especially on YouTube or in a fanbase) there are a lot of the same type of people (not putting y'all into categories or anything—bare with me). Example: PewDiePie has some of the worst fans. I know, because I'm one of them. Rick and Morty has an even worse fanbase. And then there are those who like Once Upon A Time. Those who like specific authors. People that like The Office. People that actually think anime is cool (*cough*). It's really interesting to see different people liking the same things. Of course, I'm thinking of the extremists, but I think I'm one of them xD.
So, anime. I like Japanese humor. And I'm trying to learn the language—mostly so I don't have to read stupid subtitles. Which is actually common to those who read manga and watch anime.
Doctor Who. Don't even get me started on why I love this one.
PewDiePie. He's salty and the world needs more salt like his. (xD that doesn't sound weird at all) And I find him hilarious.
What am I getting at?
Most of you who followed me are a lot like me with the same interests and whatnot. Most of you love mermaids. The other 10% are probably in the "other" category.
Honestly, I have no idea why you guys are following me, but I love that you are! I've made some awesome friends on here.
Man, this is getting away from my point and you've probably already given up reading! Aghhhhh
For a long time, I tried being "professional sounding" and whatever but it's so stuffy. The only thing that should seem professional is the way I present my books and how they look as a paperback and ebook.
So recently, I've become more "casual". (And using a lot of quotation marks, apparently). I like being playful and (failing at) being funny. I like putting memes in random updates in "Curious?" and laughing at myself in my book because I did something wrong and didn't catch before. And man, do I love reading y'all's punny jokes in The One-Hundred on that one chapter (if you haven't seen it, you need to—but don't ask me which one!).
Plus, I'm that kind of person that doesn't connect to someone who acts proper and professional. I want goofy and weird and giggly (unless you need to be professional, then I'll give you a weird look). So that's why I've been so laid back. And I feel like it's reflecting in my quality of work—meaning, the quality is higher and I'm not rushing to get things out there (even if I need to). It's letting my mind cool down and stress go away.
I'm in a comfortable spot. Not stressed. The only thing I stress about is my connection with y'all because y'all are awesome and supportive and probably getting tired of hearing me say "y'all". So that's it.
Sorry if it made no sense. *~*
It seemed like this day would never come, but HERE IT IS! Sameness is now available as both an ebook and paperback AND hardcover! It might take a few days for the paperback to reach stores in other countries, but as for the US, it's up and ready to purchase on Amazon.com, as well as Createspace.com, which has worldwide shipping! If you haven't checked it out at all, anywhere, it's a definite must-read and I had so much fun writing it! I'll post a few links below for y'all to click on to take you right to the page, but other than that, anywhere you go for books, you will be able to find me; just search K. Weikel OR Sameness. If you're having problems, please let me know, and I will try and get something straightened out.
Nine months of sleep, three months of being awake, that's how the year goes for us. Half of us wake up tired and sore while all of us wake up smelling of either lotion or bleach. But during the nine month period of hibernation, I woke up. And now I know why I always wake up sore and reeking of bleach.
> SAMENESS, WHAT WE STRIVED FOR SO LONG TO ACHIEVE. BUT WHAT IF YOU'RE DESTINED TO BE DIFFERENT? <
Humans have always strived for equality, for everyone to be treated equal. We finally reached the point of this harmony, this level of sameness--and everyone is happy. Many, many generations later. But what happens when, in a wold of people knocked down and stood up to be exactly alike, a person wants to be different? What if they're destined to be unique in a world of strict equality?
I’ve been waiting for his day for a LONG time! Sameness will be released as both an ebook and paperback on 10/14/17! The countdown has begun - are you in or out?
Available for preorder now.
41 chapters. That's what Sameness will have.
Took me a week to finish the fricking outline. But I really love this story and where it's going. I really, really hope that this story wins something in the Wattys.
As you may have noticed, if you're reading it, this book is different than the rest in its structure. This character even feels different to me, and that's good. It's the kind of character I need to write about. And I know there are questions just building, and you get hints here and there about their answers.
I hope you like the journey this story takes you on, because the messages are weaved within it. This is one of those books where I hope you take the lesson to heart, and you remember it because it moves you.
Also, I want to do something cool. I want everyone who has ever felt excluded and negatively different to send in something sharing their story, and I want that story to help you, and someone else, to overcome those feelings, whether it's artwork or poems or songs or stories. Show me your individuality and don't be afraid of it. Because different is beautiful if only you let it be beautiful.
There is no deadline.
There are no rules (except keep it G - PG-13)
I will feature each and every one of them in this book.
Hopefully you will all participate. I look forward to seeing your entries.
In other news, I'm working on getting The Unnamed and The Elite into Amazon and whatnot, so keep your eyes peeled!
Since I have both Tamir and Untouched Water as premium on Radish, I can't post them on Wattpad for free.
But thats okay.
So! Here are the books for FREE!
The One-Hundred Bundle (books 1, 2, 3)
These codes all expire 06/30/17
get them on Smashwords.com
Damian's Deeds is available as a paperback on Amazon. Go check it out!
Just finished editing Labyrinth! It's available as edited on Smashwords only for maybe the next couple of hours before it is distributed to other retailers. The book IS free, so go check it out. It's short (11,000 words long, approximately) but I really love it 😊
thanks for your continued support, and keep reading! (And swimming 😉)
i just finished editing The Vampire's Carnival as an ebook and it will be up in paperback form soon with a new cover! I'll keep you updated!
Also, Damian's Deeds is coming out soon, and I'm trying to get he paperback to upload prematurely so y'all can get the paperback BEFORE it's supposed to go on sale, but the site's being buggy.
Alright! That's it for today. Thanks for your support and encouragement :D and make sure you check out TVC - it's worth it!
i made a new cover for Damian's Deeds, and I'm finally happy with it. Check it out! What do you think? (Be nice please 😬)
everyone is probably wondering (if they've visited my Lulu page recently) why I have unedited versions of some of my books, like The Blood Room and Building Monsters. They're mainly for me, but I know there are people out there like me that like to see the "before" because of curiosity. If you're one of those people, go check them out and see all my mistakes BEFORE I try to fix them (even if they sometimes accidentally don't get fixed *~*).
I want to thank everyone for their support and to not forget to leave reviews about my books wherever you got them from. I love all the ones on iBooks for Dollhouse - they're so sweet and inspired. I'm thinking of making another one like it. Not a sequel, but the same tone.
Also, I am thinking about making a sequel to Building Monsters. Still don't know what I want to call it, but I definitely have some ideas for it.
I also still want to do a prequel/fourth book (switching between the past and the present like Tamir and Damian's Deeds does) for Hiding Behind A Mask. And I do have a name for that one.
I also want to do one for The Vampire's Carnival, diving into Adam's life pre- and post-Vanessa.
in other news, Damian's Deeds comes out 5/31! Excited! Hopefully I can finish editing by then. And then you'll be hearing crickets from me as I redo EVERYTHING. Also, I can't take my stuff off of Wattpad because I've entered contests with almost all of my books -_-. I really need to think ahead more.
But once all all the competitions are up, I'll be taking stuff down. I'm still on Catrina Billowson because, man, does it need a lot of work. That's what I get for starting at the beginning, I guess.
But ill I'll be updating here when I complete them. So watch out for me, and watch out for your favorite books, because they might be changing (If you get the ebooks, they'll update automatically, just an FYI).
I want to thank everyone for their support. I really need it now because I'm in a very dark time in my life and I can't make it through this alone. Seeing y'all comment on my books and leave nice reviews makes my day and really helps me push on. So thank you all 😊.
um... so I think I finished Damian's Deeds.
I didnt go as deep as as I wanted to in his past, but I guess I'll do that in the second part. Yes. I said SECOND PART.
DD will be a lot like the setup of The One-Hundred, where there were two separate parts that made one book. So don't worry. There will be more of Damian. But this specific little part will be a twist of what you're used to seeing. Remember the intro for DD? No? Read it before I went through and added a whole new plot line?
Shame on you.
But really. It's going to be different. New. And, surprisingly, it won't be mandatory to read, just like Untouched Water and Tamir. They're prequels and "what if"'s, unlike The One, which I will begin writing soon. I'm so ready for a new adventure with these characters.
Also, I realized something. I'm at a crossroads with Sameness and I want to bounce some ideas around and off my husband so that I can do what I think will be best for the story, but I realized why I work on more than one at a time. They inspire me with the other stories.
Oh, and another thing, Sameness will be linked to one or more of my stories. Can you guess which ones?
also forgot to mention that Dametria, the short story attached to the end of Tamir, is available by itself on Smashwords for .99¢. Yay!
