Announcing My Latest Novel: Wayfarer! (And Prizes!)

Wayfarer PinterestToday, I am officially launching my fifth novel Wayfarer. Hooray!

If you’ve been following along on my journey with this book for the last several years, then you’ll recognize it as the one I keep referring to as my “historical superhero” novel. Set in 1820 London, it’s something I also like to cheekily think of as “Spider-Man meets Charles Dickens.” Turns out there’s actually a super-niche genre for this (which I had no idea about until I started researching keywords and categories on Amazon): gaslamp fantasy.

Best titled genre ever.

Basically, gaslamp fantasy is the more magical cousin of steampunk. Like steampunk, it is set in pre-industrial historical periods, but with less emphasis on steam-powered tech and more on magic or “mad science.”

Wayfarer by K.M. Weiland

Here’s the back-cover blurb:

Think being a superhero is hard? Try being the first one.

Will’s life is a proper muddle—and all because he was “accidentally” inflicted with the ability to run faster and leap higher than any human ever. One minute he’s a blacksmith’s apprentice trying to save his master from debtor’s prison. The next he’s accused of murder and hunted as a black-hearted highwayman.

A vengeful politician with dark secrets and powers even more magical than Will’s has duped all of London into blaming Will for the chilling imprisonments of the city’s poor. The harder Will tries to use his abilities to fight crime, the deeper he is entangled in a dark underworld belonging to some of Georgian England’s most colorful characters.

Only Will stands a chance of stopping this powerful madman bent on “reforming” London by any means necessary. Unfortunately, Will is beginning to realize becoming a legend might mean sacrificing everything that matters. 

Read this new adrenaline-fueled historical superhero adventure today!

How Wayfarer Came to Be Written

My journey with this book started many years ago when I was sitting on the couch watching, for the umpteenth time, as Spidey swings through the closing scenes of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. Since I’m all about the historical aesthetic, I found myself idly wondering, How come no one has ever done a historical superhero? (As I would later discover, there have been many “historical” iterations, with Captain America’s steampunk jaunt through World War II being perhaps the most obvious current example.)

From there, my imagination took off. What came out is a book I’m very pleased with and proud of. It’s darker than some of the stuff I’ve written in the past, but also, I hope, deeper—while still being fun and funny and full of heart and adventure and a little romance. I feel it’s the best thing I’ve written to date, a representation of everything I know and believe about story.

How Wayfarer Came to Be Published

As some of you may have noticed, this book has had a bit of a winding way to official publication. I originally intended to launch it last fall before I moved—which might have worked if I hadn’t decided, at the last minute, to do some marketing experiments under a nominal pen name. So there I was in the midst of a huge move, also trying to launch a book under a pen name (some of you may have seen K.M. Wyland floating around Amazon), all while tweaking and examining metrics.

The idea was to experiment with separating my fiction “brand” from my non-fiction (similar to what Joanna Penn of the Creative Penn has done with her J.F. Penn novels). I entered into this with something of a “why not?” attitude. I didn’t have anything to lose except a little time and effort. With the leverage of Amazon ads and some targeted promos, maybe I’d notch my fiction sales up another level.

Basically, I wanted to see if I could launch the new pen name on the strength of ads alone, without the help of my existing platform, and with the ultimate intent of getting “clean” Also Bought recommendations on Amazon, which would better target my fiction to genre readers, rather than pointing back to my writing books. However, results were only so-so on that score. After the discount promos, I got some nice genre results in the Also Boughts, but my writing books also started showing up almost right away.

Add to that the multiple emails I started receiving from those of you who were concerned that:

a) my publisher had goofed with a huge typo on my book cover

b) I had an evil doppelganger who was trying to pirate all my sales

and… I decided it was all just too much trouble for too few results. It’s an experiment I’m glad to have checked off my list, but to tell the truth, I’m relieved I get to keep all my writing under the same name. Makes everything so much simpler. And I like simplicity!

  1. I live not far from London, so I am super excited to read this. The Dickens era is fascinating and I’m pleased you’ve taken our fantastic history to heart. I must admit, it isn’t a genre I would usually read but I figure it’s good to leave your comfort zone sometimes.

    Your post is timely as I have just started thinking about niche. Admittedly, I have almost outlined my first novel, so have probably left this a little late! I’m not sure if you have written a blog about finding a niche, if not, it would make an interesting read.

    Thank you for all your words of wisdom. I hope the novel is a massive success. I look forward to reading it.

  2. Woohoo! So happy to see this officially out, and best of luck!

  3. Karla Diaz says

    This is awesome!! Can’t wait to read it. I love superhero stories Congratulations on your launch and the best of luck with it.

  4. Casandra Merritt says

    Exciting! I bet it’s rewarding to finally have it out!

  5. Denali Whitford says

    I’m so glad I discovered your books and I really like getting your newsletter as well. Thanks so much!

  6. I have read steampunk before and there were gaslamps, as it was a way for angelic beings to travel via the light. An interesting concept for sure. This one sounds fantastic.

  7. thescratchingquill says

    Hey, that cover is phenomenal!

  8. Yay!! I’ve never read a gaslamp fanasy before but it sounds absolutely fascinating.

  9. Agreed that Gaslamp fantasy is the best name for a genre ever. Excited to read this one. The cover is stunning!

  10. I can honestly say that I have never heard of this genre, much less read it, lol! Interesting premise!

  11. Hooray for an official launch! I’m one of the people who picked up the version with the alternate spelling named cover. I think I shall consider it a collector’s edition. 🙂 I love hearing more about the background of your writing it. Are you going to have extras online, like you did with `Dreamlander’ and `Storming,’ or is that a bit much after moving?

  12. Fantastic! I loved Dreamlander and Storming, so I can’t wait to read this one.

  13. Congrats on the launch!

  14. Congratulations on the release of Wayfarer. Loved “Dreamlander”. looking forward to reading “Wayfarer.”

  18. Jessie Heninger says

    I have been anxiously awaiting this book forever!!

  19. I’ve never read gaslamp fantasy before, but it sounds right up my alley.

  20. I have never read Gaslamp fantasy, but now I’m hooked on the idea! Actually, the other day, I literally thought to myself that it would be so cool if someone were to write a “superhero retelling”…. I mean, fairytale retellings are all over the place, but this is something new!

  21. Congratulations on the release of Wayfarer.

  22. I just got Behold the Dawn for Christmas and I’m still in the middle of Dreamlander, but I’ll have to add this one to my list 🙂

  30. Oh, wow – a gaslamp fantasy in my home city!

  31. Dr. Kenneth R. Cooper says

    K. M. Weiland has done more to help & encourage me in my own writing than anyone else I know. I love fantasy but I don’t think I’ve read much gaslight fantasy, or if I have, I can’t remember. But why not? Everything else she has written is fantastic!

  38. I’ve never heard of gaslamp fantasy before, nor have I read it before. But, I love steampunk so I’m looking forward to reading gaslamp fantasy when I get Wayfarer!

  39. That’s great news! I really wish you the best of luck! I haven’t read anything like this before. It sounds very interesting!

  40. Alex Johansen says

    Congrats! Gaslamp fantasy is an underrated genre.

  41. beardededtechguy says

    I have not read gaslamp fantasy before and I’m excited to.

  54. timothyhicksbms says

  55. Nope! Never!

  56. I don’t think I’ve ever read gaslamp fantasy–but I have to agree with you that it is the best titled genre! I’m truly excited to read your book!

  57. YAY! So excited!!! 😀

  60. Never even heard of Gaslamp fantasy – can’t wait to check it out.

  62. Shelli Proffitt Howells says

    I love the idea of gaslamp fantasy! It even sounds cool, lol. I hope it finds its footing.

  63. Lila Diller says

    I’ve never heard of gaslamp genre before! Though I’ve heard of steampunk and wanted to read some, I’m not sure I ever have.

  64. I’ve never read a gaslamp fantasy, but I am familiar with the genre.

  65. minstrelgirl451 says

    I haven’t read Gaslamp Fantasy before, but I love the genre name! And this is such a neat giveaway! I’m very tempted to leave a multitude of seperate comments, but I’m not sure that’s legal… 😉

  66. I’ve read Steampunk AND fantasy but never gaslamp fantasy. I’m looking forward to trying it out. I love historical fiction (that’s my writing genre) and I can’t wait to read Wayfarer. I just ordered the paperback off Amazon!

  67. This is so wonderful. Congratulations K. M. Weiland

  68. I’ve never read Gaslamp Fantasy, but am eager to try a new genre. Port Townsend, WA, a town I visit often, is a center for Steampunk culture. Seems fun.

  69. Congratulations on publishing your latest novel. It sounds like an exciting read. Best of luck!

  70. Margay Roberge says

    I don’t even know what that is, but it sounds interesting.

  71. I’ve never read (or hear of) “gaslamp fantasy.” But since I LOVE anything superhero related, I’m excited to learn about this genre. Can’t wait to dig into another wonderful K.M. Weiland novel!

  72. This sounds like a fun read! I admit to being fonder of gaslamp fantasy them steampunk myself!

  73. Congrats on the release! That cover though! *swoon* I must get a paperback copy. I need to see that lovely cover in person. LOL! And that genre? Can I swoon even harder? What a cool niche! I love historical and I LOVE London, so I am super excited about getting my hands on a copy of this book!

  74. I have never read a gaslamp novel before but am looking forward to it.

  75. I’m not sure if I’ve read gaslamp fantasy before or not. I’ve read fantasy books with an in-depth magic system, but I’ve never heard it called that before so I’m not sure. Grats on your new release!

  76. I’ve never read true gaslamp fantasy before, although I did read a book that was set in a similar age but in another world. The mood of the book was probably pretty distant from the gaslamp mood.

  77. I love the idea of gaslamp fantasy! I’m so looking forward to this. Congratulations on your book launch!

  78. I never have read this genre but it seems wonderful! Congrats!

  79. Katherine Holom says

    The new novel sounds great. Thanks for explaining about the pen name experiment. That was very interesting.

    This is a great giveaway. Your writing books are listed as bonus gifts-are they included in the giveaway? Thank you!

  80. Katherine Holom says

    Oops, I didn’t realize there was a specific question. I’ve read and enjoyed gaslamp but I haven’t read a gaslamp fantasy. I didn’t even know the genre existed! I learn something everyday.

  81. Sarah Joyce Bryant says

    I had never heard of gaslamp fantasy, but it sounds like a fascinating genre. Excited to read your newest book <3

  82. I have never read gaslamp fantasy before. I took a peek at the first pages of Wayfarer . . . awesome!

  83. mamaholliss says

    I have never read a gaslamp fantasy — and I love that you were able to find such a cool genre! Congratulations on your book launch — it has been fun to get glimpses of this one on its way — and even better to see you get your “proud mama” moment!

  84. I look forward to reading this book. Thank you for all the help you’ve given me through your blogs and free downloads. I would love to win the prize, too.

  85. Linda Tillis says

    Sounds fascinating!

  86. Gaslamp fantasy!! What a neat sounding genre! Looking forward to reading your newest novel!

  87. I have never read gaslamp fantasy before, but it sounds very intriguing! Congratulations on the launch!

  88. Congrats on your launch!

    I have read gaslamp fantasy before (I think). But considering I’m not the best with genres it might have fallen under a different sub. It was a series about a group of people in the past who were prophesied to be super heroes connected to Bible verses…(I read it a long time ago so I can’t remember too much.)
    Wayfarer sounds like it’s going to be an awesome read!

  89. I have to admit I was in the is this an evil doppelganger camp. But that’s just because we’re writers and we can never go with the first or logical explanation. It must be more sinister, right? My writer brain says yes. But I’m glad to hear that was not the case.

    Congratulations on the book launch! I can’t wait to read it.

  90. I’ve never read a gaslamp fantasy, but the description of Wayfarer appeals! Congratulations and loads of success for your launch!

  91. I didn’t even know a gaslamp fantasy was a genre, but now I’m intrigued! As a fan of superheroes, I’m excited by the idea of an historical superhero adventure.

  92. I love historical fiction and SciFi, so steampunk is right up my alley. Your earlier book, Storming, was one of the best steampunk-esque novels I’ve read. I didn’t even bother reading the back cover summary before buying this one! It’s KM Weiland, it’s steampunk/fantasy, it’ll be good. 🙂

  93. Kenzy Graeling says

    I haven’t read much if any gaslamp yet, however my steampunk series I’m working on seems to have some gaslamp flair. Excited to check out wayfarer 🙂

  94. Congratulations!

  95. I have not read a gaslamp novel, but I’m willing to give it a try!

  96. Sound like an intriguing genre. Since you are such a good writer, I’ll give it a try. I love imaginative books – I’m working on my own fantasy novel.

  97. Never read gaslamp lit, but somehow I sense I’m about to! I read some dieselpunk and portal though, and it rocked!

  98. AH THIS IS SO EXCITING! I can’t wait to read this! 😀

  99. This will definitely be my first gaslamp fantasy, but it sounds like a setting and time period I will love.

  100. Hannah Ireland says

    I don’t think I have ever read gaslamp fantasy before, but I’m eager to try it out! And as a writer myself, I find a lot of inspiration in your writing! You have the gift of both storytelling and writing ability…not all authors have both. Keep up the great work!

  101. Yolanda Allen says

    This sounds like a thought-provoking yet fun read.

  102. Good luck with the launch, Katie! You have created yet another excellent novel. Can’t wait to read it again.

  103. I just got the email about Wayfarer’s release! I have been reading about this story for months when you wrote about it. Blurb and cover looks good. Congratulations

  104. Never read Gaslamp fantasy before but have excitedly waited for the day Wayfarer would be realesed for ages. I can’t wait to devour this book!

  105. Another interesting book to add to my ever-growing reading list. Looking forward to it!

  106. I haven’t read anything I have identified as gaslamp fantasy, (does Johnathan strange and Mr Norrill count or is that too early?), But it does seem like my sort of genre. Hmm… I should read some and write some.

  107. This is the first I’ve heard of Gaslamp Fantasy term. I shall be looking this up to see what exactly it is.

  108. Oh my goodness, Waylander sounds SO EPIC! Congratulations on this new release, K.M.! <3

    Liv // livkfisher.blogspot.com

  109. I’ve never read gaslamp fantasy before, but I think I would love it! Glad you brought it to my attention!

  110. Benjamin Farnum says

    This sounds like so much fun! Really looking forward to reading it!
    Probably the closest thing to Gaslamp Fantasy I’ve read is The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher.

  111. Never read gaslamp fantasy but I can’t wait to!!!

  112. Nope, I’ve never read gaslamp fantasy before, but it sounds cool! Congrats on your launch! ☺

  113. James J Heiney says

    I don’t know if The Mistborn trilogy could be considered gaslamp fantasy, but it does have a feel to it. I’m looking forward to reading this.

  114. I just ordered the book on Kindle. I have been reading your books on writing and I follow your blog. I am curious to read your fiction. The cover alone makes we want to read it.

  115. I feel like I’ve read gaslamp fantasy before, but I’ve read so many books that I couldn’t tell you what specific book it was. One of my favorite types of books are thrillers that have to do with deep tunnels underground, and there was one which was a gaslamp fantasy AND a tunnel thriller book. Wish I could remember the name.

  116. I’ve read a couple books from the GRIFFON CHRONICLES which are gaslamp fantasy, but I’ll admit that the genre name is new to my ears.

  117. Lisa Capehart says

    I’ve read one or two, but none I enjoyed like I did “Wayfarer”! I highly recommend it.

  118. I don’t believe I’ve read any gaslamp fantasy before. Sounds interesting. I had to look it up. At first I thought it would be gaslighting, but thats totally different. Lol.

  119. Congrats! I’m pumped for your new book, especially after having heard so much about the creation process and knowing you’ve put a lot of time and love into this one.
    Thanks also for sharing the motivation and results of the pen name experiment. I’m glad that the conclusion is you get to stick with the simpler approach. 🙂

  120. Donna Robertson says

    I’ve never read, or even heard of Gaslamp Fantasy before. Looking forward to it.

  121. Sounds great! Adding to my to read pile now

  122. I love reading new books!

  123. I have not read a gaslamp fantasy before. But it sounds interesting.

  124. Michele Helsel says

    Have you ever read gaslamp fantasy before? No. Good luck on your book!

  125. dnisaacson3 says

    You have such a great following on your blog. I feel like you will do great with getting the word out about your book. Can’t wait to read it!

  126. Congrats on your launch! Best of luck in the exiting new genre.

  127. I have never read a gaslamp fantasy before. I’d never heard of it either, though. It sounds like an interesting genre.

  128. Sounds great. I enjoy your writing books and look forward to experiencing your fiction works.

  129. Nehal Hussien says

    can’t wait to read it!

  130. Steampunk anything has always interested me, but I’ve never heard of gaslight fantasy before. I’m looking forward to your new book!

  131. Yakira Goldsberry says

    This sounds super awesome!!

  132. Dawn Dixon says

    Gaslamp fantasy is a new term to me – can’t wait to embrace it!

  133. Logan Jordon says

    Gaslamp fantasy sounds interesting, but Wayfarer’s premise sounds neato!

  134. Tony Findora says

    My wife got this book for me for Christmas! I’ve really been enjoying it. She wanted to read it and because she is a super fast reader, shes nearly done with it lol. She LOVES it! 🙂

  135. Question: Have you ever read gaslamp fantasy before?
    Answer: Nope.

  136. Sounds very cool! Excited to check it out.

  137. Cool prizes and book! Can’t wait to read it!

  138. Janet Kerr says

    No, but it sounds interesting!
    & Congratulations!!

  139. Great idea for a book, looking forward to reading it!

  140. I have not read a gaslamp fantasy book before, but it totally sounds up my ally! I love fantasy and I love historical fiction, so I think I would love it.

  141. Denise Howeth says

    I’ve never read a gaslamp fantasy, but I love historical sets especially the 1800’s. I just purchased Wayfarer and cannot wait to read it.

  142. Sounds exciting! I have never read a “gaslamp fantasy.” Or, at least, it’s been a long time. I hope it does well. I’d like to read it soon, but that may prove difficult … Well, I’ll tell you what I think when I read it.

  143. Catherine H says

    No, I’ve never read a gaslamp fantasy, but it sounds like the type of book I’d like. 🙂

  144. I’ve never read gaslamp fantasy before, nor have I ever heard of it! 🙂 It’s amazing how creative you are and the unique genres you introduce us to through your books! Congrats on the new book!

  145. This does sound interesting! I’ve read a couple victorian fantasy novels and they were pretty fun. This sounds like it could be one of them.

  146. I have not read Gaslamp Fantasy, but I love 19th century stuff (more on the gaslamp side of things, than the steampunk, actually) and I happen to really like Spiderman! When I heard of this book last year, I was really excited for its launch and was hoping to read it over the winter break, but at least I’ll be able to read it now.

  147. I’m on a MAJOR Marvel kick right now, so this book sounds right up my alley! So excited to read it!

  148. Aahh, so cool! I’ve been seeing this book floating around and it sounds incredible! The only Gaslamp Fantasy I think I’ve read is H.L. Burke’s Spellsmith and Carver series. I ADORE this genre! I might even technically write it myself? Anyway, so cool and congrats on the release! 🙂

  149. Oh Happy Day! Just ordered the paperback. I’ve been anticipating the release of Wayfarer since you first started talking about writing it. I hope you’ll be doing some “What I learned writing Wayfarer” posts the way you did with Storming.

  150. Sally M. Chetwynd says

    I like that! “… cheekily think[ing of your latest novel] as “Spider-Man meets Charles Dickens.” Dickens would have loved it! (On the other hand, Darwin might have tried to inspect Spider Man’s legs looking for arachnid hairs to count as a means to identify the specific species.)

    “Cheekily” reminds me of the mental images of the Three Stooges in their courtroom episode (“Take off your hat!” “Raise your right hand!”) when I was speaking over the phone last week with a prosecuting attorney over what to expect in the courtroom where I was to appear the next day as a witness in a trial. I had just seen that episode on New Year’s Eve, and had to restrain myself from chortling in the prosecutor’s ear. I felt somewhat less cheeky the next day as I waited, being an early hour after two hours’ drive to get there. (Downside: the defendant never showed up, so I may have to return, but one does what one has to do …)

    I just downloaded your “Creating Character Arcs” to my Kindle last week. It’ll be a little while before I get into it, but it will be waiting there when I need it. My next writing project will be non-fiction and a little while before there is written narrative, but your book may well prove useful as I develop the portrayal of the real people in my story. I’m still looking for an angle to make the story currently relevant – the pivotal event took place over 50 years ago, but its repercussions continue to resonate throughout the family and its surrounding community.

  151. I have been looking forward to this. I love steampunk and gaslamp fantasy!

  152. Adaline G. says

    Gaslamp fantasy and Wayfarer sound AWESOME! I can’t wait to read it, congratulations!

  153. John Poindexter says

    I have not read Gaslamp Fantasy, but I love Dickens. I used to teach several of his books.
    Good luck on the new Novel.

  154. Edward Cordova says

    My daughter told me about this book and I am really excited to read it with her! What a great concept!

  155. Michael R Warner says

    If you count Gotham By Gaslight, then yes. Otherwise, this would be my first. Looking forward to another great read from you. All the best.

  156. Gaslamp fantasy? How have I NEVER heard about this genre before? I need it in my life.

  157. I really like your blog. I have been searching for something like this for awhile now.

  158. Juliana T. says

    I have never read gaslamp fantasy, however, from the description you’ve provided I am very interested in reading this novel. Congratulations and good luck.

  159. I’ve never heard of the gaslamp fantasy genre before. It does sound intriguing. Happy Book Launch Day.

  160. No, I don’t think I have ever read gaslamp fantasy before unless maybe Sherlock Holmes would qualify? Sounds very interesting.

  161. Linsey Susanne Painter says

    Sounds like so much fun. I just got the kindle version and I can’t wait to read it. I really appreciate your non-fiction for writers to. Keep up the amazing work!! Happy New Year.

  162. Lynn O'Brien says

    I have not read the genre but love Charles Dickens, Historical Fantasy , Fantasy in general and stories about super heroes! I enjoy reading books by those who know about writing. Your experiment to use a pen-name for Fantasy sounds hilarious. I have considered using a Pen name for a totally different reason. My name is not a common name, first, middle or last. I want to be me and not some other professional. So I have decided a reversal and combination of first and middle names will do. One of my maiden names for a surname. Tried other variations but there were too many people with the same names. Maybe you should have experimented with a different name but maybe loosely similar instead of a different spelling of one vowel sound. Simplicity is best though.

  163. Congratulations!! Good job!
    Hope it takes off for you :).

  164. I have not read a gaslamp fantasy book yet but I’m intrigued. I enjoyed Storming and am anxious to dive into Wayfarer.

  165. JOHN CRYAR says

    Just bought your newest – Wayfarer. Excited to read it since I’ll be able to see how you follow your own blog advice. You are one of my mail sources of info for writing. Happy trails

  166. Andrewisediting says

    Congratulations! I’ll definitely grab a copy over on the ‘zon this week.

    Hope it’s a roaring success for you 🙂

  167. HELLO BOOK I DIDN’T KNOW I NEEDED UNTIL NOW. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?

    *ahem* I tend to just refer to gaslamp fantasy as steampunk, even if it’s more focused on magic than steam. So I’m not 100% certain what does and doesn’t count as that genre. But I read H.L. Burke’s Spellsmith and Carver books and really liked those, so that has to count for something!

  168. Sharron Minchella says

    I have read steampunk and fantasy and used a gaslamp when camping, but never combined them 😉 Looking forward to ‘researching’ this new (to me) genre 🙂 Still hoping for a sequel to Dreamlander some day, but happy to console myself in the meantime with your latest creation! Congratulations!!

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Hope no more, because I just finished such a sequel. 😉 It’s the second in what turned out to be a trilogy. I’m outlining the third book right now, and will be publishing the second as my next novel.

  169. Congratulations! So excited to read this, and thank you for the shopping spree giveaway!

  170. Never heard of gaslamp before but it sounds great. Congratulations on the new book!

  171. Congrats on your latest launch!!! And thanks for all the help you give writers. Love your Character Arc book.

  172. What a fresh premise, Katie! ALL of this sounds good—and CONGRATS on the book!!!!!!!! 😀

  173. Ooops! I commented before I saw you asked a specific question lol…actually, this is the first time I’ve even HEARD about gaslight fantasy!

  174. This sounds amazing!!! I’ve got quite the list of books to be read in 2019, and Wayfarer was just added to the top. 🙂

  175. Sunny Smith says

    Congrats on finishing your book! I feel like I remember when you first announced that you were working on Wayfarer.

  176. Congratulations in publishing Wayfarer. As a longtime steampunk fan I cannot wait to read it since I am intrigued by ‘gaslight fantasy’. Sounds like another fun subgenre.

  177. My copy is on its way from cart to doorstep! Congrats on the new release. Can’t wait to read it. I’m usually a fan of straight-up historical fiction but I’m intrigued by this whole gaslamp fantasy thing…and yes, best titled genre ever!

  178. I haven’t ever read gaslight fantasy … so many genres and sub-genres and combined genres … 🙂 Congratulations on your book launch!

  179. Abigail E López says

    Whoop whoop! I loved Dreamfinder, so I’m stoked for your newest book!

  180. Josiah DeGraaf says

    I’ve been waiting for this book for a long time. Just ordered it! 😀

  181. Linda Beretta says

    Congrats, and thanks for this great news! Looking forward to reading your latest book soon. 🙂

  182. This will be my first Gaslamp Fantasy. Looking forward to it!

  183. Congrats on the launch! I haven’t heard of the term gaslight fantasy. Learned something new!

  184. Does Fawkes by Nadine Brandes count as gaslamp fantasy? If not, I’m excited to try something new!

  185. I loved Wayfarer! It was my first adventure in the gaslamp fantasy genre, but now I’d love to read more. (Especially if there’s ever a sequel … hint, hint!)

  186. I love the concept and cover! I’m in, take my money! 🙂

  187. I’ve never read gaslamp fantasy, but Wayfarer’s concept sounds like fun. And I love the cover! Congratulations, KM!

  188. I hadn’t heard of a gaslamp fantasy before. I’m only just starting to read fantasy of any kind, but it sounds interesting.

  189. Awoooooo SUPERHEROES OF LONDON!

    AWOOOOOO!!!!

    (Sorry for the Warren Zevon reference…)

  190. I`ve never heard of gaslamp fantasy, but I like that it focuses more on magic rather than science, unlike Steampunk. Wayfarer looks like a fun read and I love the cover!

  191. Hi, no I haven’t heard of gaslamp fantasy before, but I’m interested in reading it now!

  192. Renae Mackley says

    No, but I would read it on the sole basis that I love your blog posts. Congrats!

  193. Marie R Raymond says

    I am intrigued by “gaslamp fantasy”. Congrats on your fifth and more power to you!!!! You are a star!!!

  194. Congratulations! I love your writing style and tips.

  195. Congratulations on publishing your new book, and for keeping your “old” name (it will probably make life easier). I actually discovered Wayfarer on Amazon earlier this month and I can’t wait to get started reading it.

  196. Never heard of the term gaslamp, but it actually describes a few of my favourite books!

  197. I’ve never read gaslamp fantasy, but Wayfarer sounds heavier on the historical so I want to give it a try.

  198. Diane Estrella says

    No to gaslamp, but I am definitely intrigued!!! Congrats on your newest book. We seem to be all about the superherheros so this should be a success!

  199. I have never read gaslamp fantasy before. If I have, I didn’t know it! 😄

  200. I was wondering what was going on with Wayfarer. I saw it out there not doing much. I did not notice your marketing experiment. I would have advised for it in the beginning, but once you have the books published, it’s hard to change. And, especially a problem changing the spelling of your last name, for the reasons you mentioned.

    I think few people will be less interested in your fiction because you write about writing. If you stick with historical fiction and fantasy, and especially if you stick with historical fantasy (which I think is a cool idea), your books should be enough alike to not cause problems, and your non-fiction adds credibility. But, if you start writing romances or spy thrillers, try another name.

    I never heard of Gaslamp Fantasy, but it’s great that there is such a thing. It makes me think of “gaslight” though, and thanks to Hitchcock, that has a whole different connotation.

    Good luck with your book.

  201. Craig Maresch Jr. says

    I’ve never even heard of gaslamp fantasy, but I’ll give it a try. I’ve actually never even read your fiction books yet. So this will be my first.

  202. Sounds like a fun read! I’ll have to pick it up and see your helpful advice in action!

  203. Congrats on the launch of your newest book! I’ve never read gaslight fantasy but enjoying reading (and writing) historical novels and am eager to read yours. I learn a lot from your blog!

  204. Rebekah Moon says

    I haven’t read this genre before, but I find it very intriguing. I like fantasy in general, and like to give all its sub-genres a go. Plus, the synopsis sounds great. 🙂

  205. No I haven’t read that genre before, but it has an awesome name!

  206. Tim Seabrook says

    I’m pretty sure that I’ve never read gaslamp fiction before—though with my reading habits and book volumes—it’s hard to be sure. I do have at least one of your fiction books which I’ve yet to read, though your non-fiction is to die for when providing advice on writing, characters et al.

    The competition sounds great, lots of fun prizes though alas, I’d fall into the international winner status, though a $100 Amazon voucher would still buy a lot of books and feed my craving of fiction and writing help books.

    Good luck to all who are entering, and another BIG thank you to KM Weiland for contining to inspire.

  207. So excited for you and your new book! It sounds great.

  208. Kylie Allen says

    I’ve never heard of it! It sounds really good though and exactly what I would be interested in. Can’t wait to read the book!

  209. I think I have read gaslamp fantasy, though I didn’t know it was called that.

  210. Alice Baldwen says

    I don’t know how accurate it would be to say it’s gaslamp fantasy, but your description kind of reminded me of Tamora Pierce’s “Beka Cooper” series. Also, Legend of Korra.

  211. I don’t think I’ve read anything from this genre before, but enjoy your other books, and look forward to reading this one. Congrats on what I’m sure will be another amazing book!

  212. I’ve never read Gaslamp fantasy before, but it definitely sounds interesting!

  213. Gaslamp fantasy, sounds beautiful and daring. I’m starting to read some steampunk and now I’m very curious about this new type I knew nothing about 😀

  214. Jutta Rawcliffe says

    Congratulations on publishing your fifth book! I have never heard of or read a gaslamp fantasy but I look forward to reading one!

  215. I’ve never heard of anything like this before! Can’t wait to check it out.

  216. This genre is completely new to me, and I look forward to indulging in it!

  217. Katharine L says

    Congratulations on your new book! I have read an anthology of gaslamp fantasy short stories. They were some of the strangest, most intriguing stories I’ve ever read. Gaslamp is pretty fascinating stuff, I’m glad you found your way there! 🙂

  218. Looks like a great read! Love your podcast and Dreamlander!

  219. Congratulations on publishing your novel! I’m excited for you. I have most of your writing books and your novel “Dreamlander”, which is in my To Read list.

    I’ve never read gaslight fantasy before (unless Brandon Sanderson counts) so, I’m looking forward to jumping into both “Dreamlander” and “Wayfarer” as soon as possible.

  220. Historical superhero sounds really intriguing. Love your books, both fiction and non!

  221. I had to look up gaslamp fantasy :-). Now that I know what it is, I have read a couple books in this genre. I give a lot of credit to those who can right in this genre – weaving historical and fantasy elements together into a cohesive story takes serious talent and research. My comfort zone is definitely contemporary with some element of science fiction or paranormal to enhance the story.

  222. I hope I can win! I haven’t read your new novel, but I have read many other books with advices for writing 🙂 Giuliana

  223. I admire the enthusiasm and energy you put into the marketing! And you write well too…I wish you all the best for your new book.

  224. Jesus Meneses says

    I think i´ve read 1 gaslamp fantasy book and it was awesome!

  225. Cathy Peper says

    I have never read gaslamp fantasy, but it sounds interesting.

  226. I love your books on writing! I listen to the audiobooks A LOT. Any chance of Wayfarer being available as an audiobook?

  227. Tom Crepeau says

    Thank you for this give-away. I’ve ordered Wayfarer the moment I saw I could. So looking forward to it! -tc

  228. Robert Th. Lazet says

    Just by reading the backcover blurb, 😉 makes me eager to read your book. Well written!.

  229. I didn’t even know it was a thing… but now you’ve made me curious. I’m intrigued by the many flavours of historical fantasy, and I will certainly give this one a try.

  230. I have not yet read any gas lamp fantasies, but I’m thinking maybe I should. Congratulations on your upcoming release!

  231. Tasha Stewart-Gallant says

    This sounds like such an amazing premise for a book! I’ve read all of your books on writing, and I think I’ll be putting this one in my cart too 🙂

  232. Wow, this is pretty awesome! Congratulations, Kate!

    *crosses fingers hoping that she’ll win the $100 Amazon Gift Card for international users*
    *meanwhile, comment is lost among all the clamor of people entering*

  233. I’ll admit, I don’t think I’ve ever read a gaslamp fantasy before, but the name of the genre sounds awesome, so I might have to check it out sometime.

  234. I also have not heard of gaslamp fantasy before, but it sounds intriguing!

  235. Kristy Hiles says

    I have heard of steampunk but not gas lamp. Sounds interesting!

    Good luck with your new book launch! 🍀

  236. So excited! Congrats! Already got my copy!

  237. Just started reading on my Kindle. Already loving Will. Way to go!

  238. I’ve never read a gaslamp fantasy, but I’m looking forward to this one!

  239. Jennifer Castro says

    I hadn’t even heard of Gaslamp until recently but I was really excited about it I googled it. And I’m pretty sure I found a new book genre to fall in love with as it seems to be based on my favorite period of time. I’m so excited & thank you for the incredible opportunity. I can wait to read this after I finish 2 of your other books.

  240. I’ve never read a gaslamp fantasy before, but based on your description, I might. I’m trying to expand my range anyway.

  241. I haven’t heard the term “Gaslight Fantasy” before, but it sounds intriguing. Congratulations on your book launch and thanks for doing this contest. It’s great!

  243. A. Mariner says

    Not read one yet, but soon! Congratulations on the new book!

  244. I have not read any gaslamp fantasy before, but I am intrigued.

  251. Emma Grabin says

    I’ve never read gaslamp fantasy before and I actually didn’t even know that it was an official genre. I recently got a copy of Wayfarer and I am super excited to read it!

  252. I’ve never read this genre before, but I would again! Wayfarer was wonderful!

  253. Dr. Kenneth R. Cooper says

    I tried to enter your contest by leaving a comment; and although it appeared your site accepted my comment, I can’t find it anywhere on the site. So… here’s another. Until now, I had never heard of anything such as gaslamp fantasy. So, I’m definitely going to look into it. Especially since I’m a big fan of fantasy literature. What better place to start than with a Weiland fantasy, right? In the meantime, I’ve got a pretty extensive list of books to be read in the next year, but there’s a Weiland book on the list. After all. Katie, you have done more in your writings for writers to help me improve my writing than any other writer I’ve checked out online to date. Thanks. And keep kneeling down, looking up, and forging ahead.

  254. I’ve heard of gaslamp fantasy but the historical superhero thing sounds fun! I loved your novel Storming, so I definitely want to get a copy of this one!

  255. Excited to read this!!

  256. Rachel Rowbottom says

    Wow! I love the cover of Wayfarer, and it sounds intriguing.

  260. I haven’t read gaslamp fantasy before, but it certainly has appeal!

  261. Edward Denecke says

    So excited for you! I’m adding Wayfarer to my reading list!

  262. I’ve never read gaslamp fantasy before–it’s a completely new genre to me!

  263. I’ve never read a gaslamp fantasy before but it sounds very interesting!

  264. Gaslamp fantasy sounds like an interesting genre, and it’s all so very new to me. I wouldn’t mind starting off on it with, “Wayfarer.” Congratulations on your new book~! I hope to read it soon. ❤

    • Agreed! Gaslamp fantasy is new to me, and when I’m looking for a new read, this seems like a great place to start. Congrats, K.M.!

  265. Yeah, I’ve read some gaslamp fantasy – I’m a huge fan of the steampunk aesthetic, but I also love the magic and whimsy of a good fantasy world. In fact, I’m actually working on my own gaslamp fantasy novel!

  266. Lacey Kelley says

    I’m greatly intrigued by this concept of a gas lamp fantasy and would definitely like to explore it more!

  267. I’ve never [knowingly] read gaslamp fantasy before but I’ve been looking forward to this one!

  268. Ciara Isabel says

  274. Andrew Fuller says

    Never heard of this genre before. I’m off to Amazon to check it out!

  275. Congratulations! I’ve never heard of gaslamp fantasy, but it sounds like an amazing genre and I can’t wait to read Wayfarer!

  277. I have never even heard of gas-lamp fantasy but I will definitely be checking out your book!!

  278. I have never read gasslamp fantasy before! Can’t wait to try!

  279. You have introduced me to the term “gaslamp fantasy.” I enjoy period-based fiction as well as fantasy, so this should be a delightful fusion!

  280. How funny about the emails you received from concerned fans! Good on you for doing the experiment.

    I also have to admit I hadn’t heard the term ‘gaslamp fantasy’. I’m intruiged about it 🙂

  281. Tomeka Manson says

    I have never heard of gaslamp fantasy but I will look it up. I love your writing btw!

  282. I can’t wait to read your book!!

  283. I had never even heard the term Gaslamp Fantasy before, so no….. I don’t think I’ve read one. Will change that soon 🙂

  284. I had not heard of the Gaslight Fantasy genre until now. I will remedy that by reading your new book!

  285. Goodreads still appears a little confused about the name change. Two versions of Wayfarer are listed, one under Wyland and one under Weiland, and they have different ratings and reviews. Your experiment is living on!

  286. Philana Crouch says

    I have not read that genre before, but it sounds like fun.

  287. I haven’t. I’m usually more of a women’s fiction reader.

  288. Silmarillion99 says

    I’ve never read Gaslamp Fantasy before but have heard it mentioned among my writing friends. I’m really looking forward to this book as my first taste of it 🙂

  289. 5th novel!!!!! Wow. Congratulations. We need an Audible version of Wayfarer.

  290. Through your novels I have learned about Gaslamp fantasy, but now I’m eager to learn more about this genre. Good luck with the launch!

  291. Margaret Fiske says

    Although I haven’t yet read any Gaslamp, it sounds like a marvelous genre and I am anxious to try it. Congrats on the new book, Katie!

  292. Heather Schick says

    I didn’t know about gaslamp fantasy until your books came into my life. I’m exited you have completed Wayfayer and congratulate your accomplishment. This is wonderful news and I have another book to read! Thank you!!

  293. Gaslamp fantasy is new to me. Very much looking forward to reading this one though! 🙂 Might be fun to write in the genre sometime, too. 😀

    Thank you so much for all the helpful advice you give us all! Wishing you all the very best with your new book! 🙂

  294. Isabelle Evans says

    I never really knew what gaslamp fantasy was – I’m so curious!

  295. This is the first time I’ve heard of gaslamp fantasy.

  296. I’ve never heard of gaslamp until now.

    I have not read this style before, going to look up your other books to find book#1 and read my way to this new book ,excited about the new adventure. Thank you for the instructional ebooks they will help me move my book from my head to the paper. My stories have been growing for 50 years now.

    I never heard of gaslamp fantay but what a fabulous label!

  303. jessapphire says

    I have not read Gaslamp Fantasy before but this seriously looks amazing and yes! An AUDIOBOOK would be incredible. I love paperbacks, but I love rereading again and again the delights of an audiobook.

  304. Michelle Stockard Miller says

    I have not heard of it, but I’m thoroughly intrigued. I enjoy steampunk so I feel pretty confident I would enjoy gaslamp fantasy as well. Congrats on the release!

  305. I think I’ve read gaslamp fantasy before (kinda reminds me of Nadine Brandes’ Fawkes). Thanks for the giveaway!

  306. Thanks!

  307. Rachel Kolodziej says

    I have never read Gaslamp before. Today is the first time I’ve ever heard of it!

  309. Your blog is where I come whenever i need advice, a clearer understanding, or just some confidence. Thank you.

  310. Larga Parker says

    Congratulations! That is awesome. I can’t wait to read it, I have read ALL your books and they are a blessing beyond what you can ever imagine.
    I admit I have never heard of the genre before. The sound of it greatly appeals to me as I love historical novels and am not that fond of Steampunk, I just prefer the older.
    Blessings with the book!

  311. I’ve heard of gaslamp fantasy before, but I’ve never actually read it. After hearing some excerpts from your “how to” writing posts however, I’m definitely intrigued. Can’t wait to read it!

    I haven’t heard of or tried gaslamp before, but I will be now. I have found your site very helpful and would love to see how your style compares to mine. 🙂

    Yeah, this genre is new to me too. Can’t wait to read Wayfarer though!

  314. I haven’t heard of gaslamp before but I’m definitely intrigued. Who doesn’t love magic? 😀

  315. Tammy J Rizzo says

    I am unsure if what I had read in the past would count as gaslamp fantasy, but it sounds right up my alley!

  316. Tammy J Rizzo says

    My comment hasn’t shown up yet. I wonder if it even went through? I said how I don’t know if what I’d read before counts as gaslamp fantasy, but it sounds like just what I’d love to read!

  317. Tammy J Rizzo says

    I went to buy the book, and it turns out I had pre-ordered it way back near Halloween, when you first put out the pre-order link. Yay!

  318. Ralph Castillo says

    Just purchased the digital copy. Very excited to begin reading

  319. I have not read or even heard of gaslamp fantasy. Thank you for introducing it to me! Your novel is a true wonder.

  320. What an exciting concept!

  321. This sounds like a must read. Heading to Amazon.

  322. I haven’t read gaslamp fantasy before.

  323. Allison Lee says

    Can’t wait to read your next novel!

  324. Shennon Helms says

    Congrats on the release of your new book! I don’t recall hearing about gaslamp before, so I don’t think I’ve read any, although I have read books that I don’t know which genre they fall under. It sounds intriguing!

  325. congrats on new novel!
