Something looks different!
You’re right! Thank you for noticing. I have a few announcements to get through, so bear with me!
First thing’s first: When Dead Men Bleed is on Tales.
Click here to check it out!
Tales is an awesome interactive storytelling platform, and the people there are so nice and helpful. They put WDMB together and it looks SO AMAZING.
When Dead Men Bleed is a book I poured so much into. I have so much planned for the next books, and I’m so excited to share it with you guys. Seeing these characters come to life is an amazing feeling. I can’t get over Zeke and Mikey’s art. It’s stunning.
The team was super responsive and listened to everything I told them, and they really brought these creations to life. I will say my favorite character art is by far Etem’s. My goodness, he looks awesome! I have stuff planned for him, too, along with Cayla and Raquel. Everyone’s art is so amazing, especially Zeke and Mikey’s. They’re perfect. Exactly how I pictured them.
The Tales team is currently working on two of my other books, so I guess y’all will see those when I announce them!
Make sure you check out Tales and all their amazing stories.
It’s a monumental time for WDMB! I will be selling 25 copies of When Dead Men Bleed that includes the dust jacket below. They also have their own set of book boxes! But they are available by themselves if you don’t want the book box.
The Limited Edition also includes some artwork on the inside, and it’s all in color. It’s gorgeous, and features art by Reign Cattoni.
Tales isn’t the only thing that’s happening to WDMB.
I made a limited edition dust jacket! If you get the limited edition paperback or hardcover from my store, you get the dust jacket FREE! It includes artwork on the flip side of Zeke nurturing Mikey back to health.
They’re finally here! Check out what’s in them below!
They also have free US shipping, so yay for that! That reduced the price of the boxes by at least $15! I also wanted to add more stuff to the boxes, and I totally achieved that, now that I’m aware of how to do these boxes.
You can also add stuff to the box without upgrading completely to the next step. Want a standee? Add it to the box for a small fee. Want a poster? Add it too!
Limited Edition Boxes
These are just like the others, only there’s 25 available in TOTAL! 25 hardcovers and 25 paperbacks. These limited edition books are in color and feature some of the art inside.
These boxes automatically include a dust jacket cover. In it’s place, you get a poster of Zeke nursing Mikey back to health.
That’s all for now!
if you’re interested in reading WDMB free in exchange for a review, message me over on Instagram (kweikelofficial)! Or if you’d like to be a part of my Advanced Readers Army and get exclusive deals on book boxes and whatnot, let me know. I’d be happy to add you!
Thanks so much for reading and all your support. I hope you have a wonderful day!
Here is the Whiteout Cover Edition for Sameness—and I think it's one of my favorites in the collection.
The colors are White and Gold for Whiteout, but Sameness took on more blues than I originally wanted... and I couldn't be happier.
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?

What’s something that terrifies you?
For a lot of people, it’s the ocean. Which is understandable. But growing up, I was never afraid of it. I wanted to explore it, to dive down to its murky depths and discover things no one else had before.
I guess if you’ve read The One-Hundred or Waterlogged, or any of my water books, you could see that.
I wanted to be a marine biologist or an oceanographer, which includes taking pictures, so I would probably have been better as a marine biologist.
Anyway. College wasn’t for me. Which is fine. It isn’t for everyone. Not including being force-fed lies and listening to teachers bash what I believed, I just… wasn’t made for college.
So I began writing. In 2014, I self published my first book, The Vampire’s Carnival. I wrote it in 22 days and didn’t understand much about formatting, cover design, or really even editing. Eight years, a Watty, and 57 books later, I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Now what I’m afraid of is not achieving my dream: becoming a stay-at-home full-time writer.
But I will make it. I know I will, because I’m declaring it. Jesus says you will have what you say, so I say I will make enough money off my books to live off of it.
Eight years… that’s a long time. Some people give up after one. But here I am. And I’m not going away.
Join me on my writing journey. And for those of you who have supported me since the beginning, or, heck, even at all, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
SO. I didn’t finish Go. Have too many things I want to do in the book and not a smooth way to get it all together. Not to mention February was the last month for the book boxes, so I was kind of focused on that. I also started up DoorDash for extra money, so you could say I’ve been a bit busy!
Either way, here’s the skinny: March, I was supposed to finish Damian. But as February came to an end, I realized I’d written a whole book for Damian, and I left off on quite a cliffhanger. Long story short, Damian is finished and is the beginning of a spin-off trilogy about Damian.
Yes, that means more One-Hundred books.
I hope you’re excited. I have 9 books I want to write for The One-Hundred universe, so wish me luck. I hope you look forward to reading stories from Damian, Morgiana… and even Lily-flor.
Oh, yeah. You read that right.
So Damian is done. When will it be released? When I finish the second book. I want to get in the habit of finishing the next book before releasing the book before it. Example: I won’t release Replay: Peridot before I’m done with Replay: Pearl and so on. This way, the people reading them won’t have to wait four years like they did with Stop; Go.
*Couch cough* Sorry, y’all.
Anyway. I will continue working on Go this month, as well as Pearl. I have some cool ideas I want to implement somehow. I’ve finished drafting the outline of Go, BUT it will probably go through SEVERAL revisions before I’m happy with it. Good thing is I know where I want it to end. If that changes, oh well. It’s happened before and it’ll happen again. It isn’t the end of the world.
Anyway! Don’t forget to vote on the next book box here.
Have a wonderful day!

these book boxes have been a lot of fun. I will begin shipping them out as soon as I get the last little bits in, so watch for them! I SHOULD be shipping out no later than March 5th. There have been quite a few delays with mail because of everything happening right now, but I will get them out asap! I hope you enjoyed this as much as I have :)
Thanks to everyone who helped make the book boxes a success! This is the first time I’ve ever tried doing something like this. I’ve had a lot of fun and those who helped with the numbers and whatnot were SO helpful and amazing, so thank you my friends for all your help and support, I don’t believe I could have done this without you.
I can’t wait for the next box. If you want to vote for the next book theme, check out my linktree. You have six options and if the one you want isn’t available, put it in the “other” spot.

New month, new book.
I'm finally going to finish Go, the second book to Stop in the Stop; Go Duology.
I got 24k words in and stopped two years ago. I couldn't go any further. I was terrified the second book wouldn't live up to the first, and it kind of crippled me.
But here I am, tackling it once more. I've read through Stop and what I have of Go, and I've been making notes. Loose ends that need tying up, random ideas I could throw in there... and I think I'm ready. I'm finally ready to write the other 50-75k words. Cass/andra, Tomoe, Axus... I'm coming back for you, and boy do I have some adventures for you to go on.
If you haven't read Stop, I recommend it. Half of it is in Iambic Pentameter (a very loose version, at least), and it literally straddles the line of science fiction and fantasy. Shape shifting half cyborgs, kitsunes, Jabberwocks, the Cheshire, alien races made from gems, a galactic bounty hunt... I think giving you a list of what's not in this book would be an easier list to digest! Either way, I love this story and I can't wait to complete it.
Oh... and did I mention most all of my books are connected somehow?
I'm also starting to work on the next installment of Replay--Pearl. Alternate ending 6.
I may or may not be doing the whole one book per month thing again. I know, I know, it wore me out last time, but I can do it now. I know I can. Besides. I'm writing like 1 1/2 books every month. So. It'll be fine.
I'll keep you updated with Go and Pearl. Wish me luck!
FINALLY, after two years, Waterlogged is complete. Standing at a whopping 190k (and probably over 200k after editing), Waterlogged is the longest book I have ever written. Granted, it's split up into four parts, but it's still one book.
The entire Replay Series is over 300k so far. The One-Hundred is 100k, and The One-Hundred series adds up to be over 300k as well. So. Waterlogged is 2/3 the size of these two series, AND it's one book.
Sorry. Just kind of blows my mind.
The whole book is something close to my heart. I love these characters so, so very much. The world I created with the sirens and the humans... it just works, for me. Iridessa is such a joy, and she is so eager to learn about the human world while simultaneously so terrified of it and the men that walk it... and I love watching her and Elijah grow throughout the book. The way they provide for each other and the way they go out of their way to help one another, even though they are supposed to hate each other... Ah... it just feels so nice.
Anyway. Waterlogged is finished. I have a lot of heavy lifting when it comes to editing for the last part, but I don't mind. I rewrote the whole fourth part three times. The first time, I got halfway through it and just... stopped. I couldn't write anymore. I ended up hating where it was going. Then I started again. I got almost 20k words in and stopped. Because I hated this one too. So I got a bunch of post-it notes and a friend, and wrote what I needed to happen on the post-it notes. Then, my friend helped me move the post-it notes around until the story made sense.
And that did the trick.
I got through it.
I finished it.
And I can't wait to share it with you.
Thanks for all your support.
I've been working on an unannounced book series for two years now. I JUST finished book 3, and I have so much I want to do with this series. I want it to be a long one, so fingers crossed. Until The One-Hundred, I've never been able to get out more than three books for a single idea. And here I am, writing a seventh book in The One-Hundred series and book fourteen of Replay.
My, how things have changed.
I hope you're excited for it, and looking forward to a new story. I won't be announcing it or publishing it until I'm finished with Replay, though, so no worries.
I'm in love with this series, so far. The characters, the story... I will definitely be pushing my limits with these books,. so I hope you enjoy them when they do come out.
Thank you for all your support!
