Storming’s Launch Day! Win Prizes!

Time to get this party started! Today is the Launch Day for my fourth novel Storming, a historical/dieselpunk mashup that is dear to my heart for a lot of reasons:

1. I had probably more fun writing it than I have any of my other books.

2. Which makes sense, since I think you’ll find it the most objectively “fun” story out of anything I’ve written to date (but don’t worry, you’ll still get all your angsty characters in search of redemption, blood-and-thunder stakes, and what my totally prejudiced brain insists is the most adorable romantic subplot I’ve written yet).

3. Its setting (western Nebraska), if not the time (1920),  is very familiar to me, which was a blast for a change. (I’ll take you on a tour of the real-life settings here.) So I get to show you around my favorite places along the way.

4. It’s got biplanes!

5. For the first time ever, it combines my two genres–historical and speculative–by tossing in a fun dose of dieselpunk. (What’s dieselpunk? Think steampunk, but set between the World Wars instead of the Victorian period.)

All of this means I’m beyond pleased to finally get to share the book with all of you who have been eagerly (and patiently) waiting for it!

Sometimes Even Pilots Have to Wing It Storming A Dieselpunk Adventure K.M. Weiland

Where Can I Buy the Book?

You can purchase the book in paperback, on Kindle, Nook, or Kobo. And if you really, really want the paperback and can’t just decide, I’m trying something new this time around: if you buy the paperback from Amazon, you’ll get the Kindle version free via their MatchBook program.

(Don’t have a Kindle but want to take advantage of the cheaper e-book options? No problem. You can read Kindle books off your computer, iPhone or iPad, or Android, using their respective Kindle apps.)

You can read the summary here, read the first chapter here, and watch the trailer here.

As always, I’m celebrating the book’s launch with PRIZES! So please join the party. There will be hourly prizes all day today and fun stuff all week (including daily games–with more prizes–on Facebook and Twitter), culminating  in the Grand Prize Bundle.

Grand Prize

In the past when you guys have voted on prizes, you’ve always (totally reasonably) chosen the Kindle over the gift box. But I love gift boxes. So why shouldn’t we get the best of both worlds?

Win a Kindle and More!

This time, I’ve put together a huge prize bundle. One lucky winner will receive:

  • A brand-new Kindle (six-inch touchscreen)
  • Signed paperback editions of all my novels, including:
  • A $25 Amazon gift certificate (so you can stock that Kindle right away!)
  • A Steampunk Dial Pocket Watch (comes with a leather cord, so you can wear it as a necklace as well)
  • Replica JN-4D Biplane (as featured in the book)
  • Leather-Bound Journal
  • Cafe La Llave Espresso Coffee Brick (the best coffee)
  • Donckels Cocoa-Dusted Belgian Truffles (the best chocolate)

To Enter

The contest will run until Wednesday, December 9th. You can do several things throughout the week to earn contest points and increase your chances of winning. For every contest point earned, your name will be entered once more into the pool (e.g., if you’ve earned 18 points, you have 18 chances of winning). (Note: no purchase is necessary to enter.)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck to everyone in the drawing, have fun, and thank you for helping me celebrate the launch of Storming!

  17. Oh boy, the coffee caught my eye first, I hate to say, but that leather bound journal was a close second!

    Congratulations on your book release! I cannot wait to read it. 🙂

  18. Wanda Bergman says

    The Kindle totally caught my eye first.

  19. Congratulations! So excited that my weekend pleasure reading flew onto my Kindle today. Happy landings, and here is to a book that storms the bestseller charts!

  20. This is so cool. Love the trailer. Congrats!

  21. Congratulations on another book published, what a great giveaway! What I noticed first in the bundle of gifts? The red journal…. I love a good journal, but I’m even more curious as to how it might play out in the novel.

  22. Joining 😀 I kind of want everything, specially that pocket watch, the kindle, the gift card and the books, of course.

  23. Doug Glassford says


    Just got your email and purchased Storming. Looking forward to reading it on my laptop using Kindle PC. What caught my interest is the steampunk watch (I am a huge steampunk fan and a pocketwatch collector – 30 years on the railroad will do that to you.)… along with everything else.

    Wishing you the best always!

  24. This is a really cool giveaway. Excited to get a copy of Storming – will have to wait until my birthday (the 9th) but still. Very much looking forward to reading this book. You rock!

  25. Catherine H. says

    I am really interested in the signed books and the journal. And the chocolates. 🙂

  26. Tessa de Jong says

    The first thing I saw was the airplane, displayed nicely in the middle of the picture. I ususally look at the things in the middle, because you can see the rest too. But the airplane really stood out.

    Congratulations on your book realease! It looks and sounds great. Hope I’ll be able to read it soon.

  27. I haven’t read steampunk or dieselpunk before, but I love action-adventure. I can’t wait to dig into this! 😀

  28. K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

    Thank you all so much! I can’t wait for you to read the book–and have fun with the drawing!

  29. Michael Gettel-Gilmartin says

    Congratulations! I was unfamiliar with the term “dieselpunk” but I like it. The thing that fist caught my eye was the biplane.

  30. Charli Kap says

    I’m so excited to read this book! I’ve been following your blog post updates on it for a while now, and I can’t wait to actually experience the whole thing. (As a side note, your posts about what you learned writing “Storming” have really helped me think on and improve my own writing, so thank you for posting those.)
    I think the pocket watch is really fantastic, but the first thing that caught my eye in the prize bundle was the signed book package. And the Kindle, because the potential for many more books is always fun.

  31. I love truffles. 🙂

  32. Great launch party. All the best with your new book. Would love to host you for a blog interview in January. Contact me.

  33. Congratulations! It sounds like you had a lot of fun writing it.

  34. Congrats on the release. I know from keeping up with your podcast that this one has been an adventure in the making, and now it’s finally here! I have just finished your books on Outlining and Structuring, and found them revolutionary to my writing process. You have been such an incredible writing mentor to me this far. So, I just wanted to share my heartfelt felicitation on getting Storming out to the world. May I get to feel that same joy one day!

  35. I am really enjoying it so far! My cat is not enjoying it. She has several times tried to knock the Kindle out of my hand so that I will pay attention to her instead of St0rming.

  36. Nancy Wilson says

    That watch looks charming. It might help me remember to put down the books in time for all the other things I would ought to be doing…

  37. Alisa Russell says

    This book looks great! Would be great to win the prizes!

  38. Catherine Donovan says

    Thank you for the awesome contest!

  39. Alisa Russell says

    Sorry for the duplicate post. I have a problem paying attention sometimes. 🙂 The signed books were what caught my eye.

  40. That Kindle sure caught my eye. It would be a great way to read my new copy of Storming on Kindle.

  41. The first thing that caught my eye of the gift pack goodies was the Kindle. BTW, I love the book cover. 😉

  42. Oh, I would love to win the paperbacks 😀

  43. How exciting, launch day! Congrats! I can’t wait to read Storming.

  44. Dieselpunk. Yes! We need more of that.

  45. The journal definitely caught my attention! That looks pretty cool. 🙂

  46. Congratulations. I am so excited for you!

  47. Oooh! Storming looks fantastic – as do all the prizes! The pocket watch calls to me. And my wife would love the journal. 🙂

  48. Joanna Marie says

    Ahhhh so excited!! I can’t wait to read it. 😀 I’m loving the possibility of owning signed copies of your other novels!

  49. The plane looks awesome! Thank you so much for hosting this!

  50. Hey, KM. You have so much helpful info-you’ve certainly contributed a ton to my own writing development. So why don’t you ever go on writing/publishing podcasts? I’d love to hear you discuss this juicy stuff with some of those personalities.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      I actually will be doing a couple interviews in the coming weeks, one with BookTrib and one with Kami Garcia and James Scott Bell via the NaNoWriMo site.

  51. The pocket watch or journal touched me. 🙂 All are lovely prizes!

  52. Congrats Katie! What caught my eye? The big shiny airplane 🙂 I like big shiny airplanes 🙂

    Oh and I suppose I COULD eat a truffle or 10.

  53. Congratulations on your book launch! So exciting!

  54. The paper books caught my eye! I don’t get very many of those these days! I wouldn’t sneeze at the new Kindle either though hehe
    Good luck with the launch!!

  55. You’re gonna have a busy day Katie! 🙂 A good type of busy day though!

  56. Emma Grabin says

    So excited to read “Storming”! I have to say, what caught my eye first was the books and the chocolate! 🙂

  57. Liz Thomas says

    The watch looks terrific. Can’t wait to read your book!

  58. Yay! Can’t wait to read the book! So excited for you. Also, thank you so much for being a constant source of inspiration and motivation for my own writing. You are awesome!

  59. I’m so excited to start reading this! I gotta say it was the Kindle that caught my eye at first though. 😉

  60. Congratulations! I’m very intrigued by Storming, and the idea of “dieselpunk.” I never knew there was a term for this. Very cool!

  61. Hey K.M., you have done such a great job with all these blog posts! Interesting to read, helpful, inspiring. Congrats on your new novel! Keep up the great work!! 😀 That leather journal looks amazing!!

  62. I so hope to read Storming soon! We’ll see if I can afford it with my budget . . .
    And the Steampunk Pocketwatch is what I’m drooling over. It looks fantastic.

  63. What an amazing giveaway package! And your new book looks really interesting as well. I think my brother would especially enjoy it.

  64. Congrats on the book launch!

  65. Ooh, this looks super fun. o.o :3 I’ve never tried entering soemthing like this before. :3 The journal was what caught my eye. :3 And then the pocket watch. O_O

    Storming’s book trailer though. It was really cool. O_O I think I’ll be buying that today. I have an Amazon gift card that needs using up. B)

  66. Congrats, Katie! What a great prize bundle! Hard to choose what caught my eye, but the pocket watch looks great!

  67. Wow! Congrats! Great giveaway–the journal is gorgeous and that pocketwatch looks so cool!

  68. Already snagged my copy and can’t wait to dig in! Congratulations on your Release Day and Launch Party! 🙂

  69. Been looking forward to this for so long! Congrats on another success! You’ve been inspirational this year. My own writing journey has felt stale lately, but that all changed after picking up a copy of both Outlining and Structuring Your Novel! I’ve never been as motivated to write and persist in my dream before! So thank you very much! And congratulations once more 🙂

  70. Melinda Primrose says

    Hi Katie! Congrats on your new book. Can’t wait to read it. I love seeing when an author is passionate about the story they wrote. I’m sure it will be great!

  71. The leather journal totally won my heart. I may be a tech geek, but I have always loved something about a fresh new journal or notebook. Old school for the win! Lol

  72. Ahh, Katie, only you could come up with such a genre-breaking story. I know I shall enjoy it as much as I did your previous books. Blessings, girl!

  73. Signed paperbacks – those caught my eye. Of course, a Kindle
    would be something new for this crusty old Luddite!

    Best of success on your launch today – Amazon has my paperback
    order already. Keep up the good work.

  74. Kelsey Zink says

    congratulations! I can’t wait to read it!! 😀

  75. Yay!!! Congrats! 😀
    I think the pocket watch looks the coolest. 🙂

  76. Congratulations on the release. So excited to read it. I can’t decide which would be the best in the bundle, the pocket watch or leather bound journal.

  77. Sounds awesome! Historical and speculative…must have been a blast to brainstorm, research, and write.

  78. Great prizes… and coffee always catches my eye first in the morning!

  79. Hey KM,
    I’m so happy for your book release today! Thank you for all you do for writers and the writing community. I look forward to reading your newest novel!

  80. Roan Michael Coulee says

    Biplane! Biplane! I want to win a Biplane! (okay, okay, how about a model of a biplane? Er,… a nice photo? A simple sketch? … an old scratch n’ win ticket: somehow related to biplanes, or regular planes, a regional air show maybe, …or, uh… a really colorful species of duck…)?

  81. Congratulations on the release! Wishing you lots of success.

  82. Everything about this prize pack is amazing, and everything about this novel feels like an ice cream sundae. I am so excited to read Storming!

  83. I have to say the steampunk dial watch jumped out at me. What a neat prize idea !

  84. It’s been awesome to hear about your journey as you wrote this. Congratulations on release day!!

  85. Othoniel Delgado says

    Hey congratulations, KM on novel #4. 😀 Here’s wishing you the very best book launch ever!

  86. Very excited about Storming, K.M!! Definitely one I’ll have on my shelf. What interested me most in the grand prize? The signed copies of your books. 🙂

  87. Congrats on launch day! Wheeeee! Super excited about the giveaway bundle–the journal caught my eye first, though I can never bring myself to write in them because I’m always afraid of spoiling their pristine perfection. 😛

  88. The leatherbound journal caught my eye. I like using those as notebooks. Very cool looking.

  89. Also — did you come up with the tagline, or did your editor? Taglines are something I have a hard time with. I think I’ve cracked loglines, but taglines not so much.

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      I came up with this one. I agree: they’re hard! What I did for this one was research phrases that related to flying and pilots–and ta-da!

  90. “Which of the prizes in the bundle caught your eye first?”

    The pocket watch; it’s so shiny. ^.^ The books ran close second, though. Those covers are amazing! 😀

  91. Just got my copy of Storming! Can’t wait to read it!

  92. Lydia Hansen says

    What caught my eye? Phht! EVERYTHING! I’ve wanted to own a Kindle for a long time, but have never felt comfortable with laying the money down, since I have other financial expenses I have to deal with first (paying for college, ect). But definitely before that was the opportunity to own ALL your books. Again, limited funds have kept me from getting them all, and I would love love LOVE to have the complete set. And who can so no to all the cool memorabilia? Dieselpunk is so cool, and I’m looking forward to Storming so much right now – that biplane would be an awesome thing to have in my room. (just sayin’.)
    *crossed fingers that I win*

    *crossed fingers that I win*

  94. Dominic Brasted says

    What caught my eye: the Kindle. I use a Kindle app on my phone, so an actual Kindle would be a nice alternative!
    I’m in a bit of a dilemma – if I read Storming now then I won’t have the wonder of reading it for the first time anymore. But if I wait, it’ll be there, whispering to me with its promise of thrills and spills, and extending the on-the-edge excitement of knowing a brilliant novel (because I’m confident it will indeed be brilliant) awaits me…

  95. Congrats! The book sounds amazing! I can’t wait to read it. The bi-plane and journal caught my eye. I need a nice journal to keep all my writerly brilliance in!

  96. chris tarango says

    The Kindle is great but the signed books is what drew me in.

  97. Congrats! The book sounds really interesting, and I’m looking forward to reading it!!

  98. The cover looks epic!

  99. Pre-ordered this one for my birthday two days ago! It’s on my tablet now and I can’t wait!

  100. Jackie Mudge-Cooke says

    I can’t wait to read this book, since it’s my first Dieselpunk. I also would love to win the grand pirze but honestly I would love to win any prize. I love your non fiction books, I will admit that the time to read your fiction is long over due. (At least I have somewhere to start)

  101. Benjamin Farnum says

    Looking forward to reading this!

    And I’m a sucker for gift-cards… and coffee… and chocolate.

  102. I would love to have all those signed paperback books and the journal! 😀

  103. Duane Wiley says

    Been reading your blog for a while now and this book Storming (diesel punk ) is totally new to me. Looking forward to reading!

  104. Congrats on your fourth book! Keep up the good work. 🙂

  105. Looks really interesting, can’t wait to read it.

  106. Polaris Northstar says

    Wow, cool prizes! Um… I don’t know which prize caught my eye first… my eyes just went crazy all over the place!

  107. So excited for you! Just got my copy!

    P.S. I think the pocket watch is a really fantastic prize! 🙂

  108. The kindle caught my eye right away, but I have to say, the books are quite tempting, too. I’ve had Dreamlander on my TBR list for a while.

    Congrats on your release. It must be a great feeling. 🙂

  109. Congratulations on the launch! Wish you lots of success. 😀

    I’m not one for contests, but if that cap and goggles were a prize… I’d be pretty tempted to give it a go. (then again, probably wouldn’t look as good on me!)

    Again, congratulations!!

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Hah. Actually, I am thinking about giving them away as a prize for the one the games on Facebook this week. If you’d like to join in… 😉

      • really? hmm… though I’m not much on facebook will have to check your page… you know, just in case! 😉

        • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

          Look for it tomorrow around 1:20PM MST–on my fan page, not my personal page. 🙂

          • Okay… that’s just a bit confusing as I used the link at the top of the page thinking it was… oh, well, my mistake and thank you for providing the link! 🙂

  110. Christine Monson says

    Congrats on your latest book. 😉
    I have my eye on the journal.

  111. Ilima Kung says

    The signed copies of your books definitely caught my eye!!

    Congrats on your launch! I’m so excited for you!

  112. Looks like a neat book! I think the leather book caught my eye first, but hearing about the signed books was also a plus 🙂

  113. Steve Mathisen says

    Yahoo! Wonderful stuff to giveaway. Three cheers for you and your fans!!

  114. The pocket watch caught my eye. Very nice!

  115. My father flew bi-planes; In those days the pilot was taught to listen to the wind in the wires to make sure the plane was flying properly!!

  116. The signed copies of your books definitely caught my eye first!

  117. Happy launchings!
    Thanks for the great tips; I’m hoping to use them so that one day (soonish), I can celebrate a launch of one of my own books.
    Congratulations. Also, I love the aviator cap.

  118. They all look great!!

  119. I was first drawn in by the signed paperback books. While I love eBooks, I do enjoy the feeling of holding a book in my hands, and a signed book is that much more special. Thank you, K.M. for the opportunity to win, and I cannot wait to read it! 😀

  120. The plane caught my eye first, but your whole prize package looks great! I just finished my current addiction last night, so the timing is perfect — I can go straight into your book tonight. Promise not to keep me up too late turning e-pages?…

  121. Definitely the signed copy of your books. Thanks for all the great writing advice! And thanks for the opportunity to win this prize. Keep up the great work.

  122. Congrats on the book! I’m a huge fan and wish you mega-sales. The Amazon gift certificate caught my eye–stocking the Kindle is always a joy. Thanks for the opportunity.

  123. Cool prize pack!

  124. Well, what caught my eye in the bundle first was your Storming book of course. Then, I saw the journal! I would love to put pen strokes down in that gorgeous thing!
    Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  125. Hi Katie! 🙂

    The first thing that caught my eye in the giveaway was the books. Then the Kindle. Then the card. Then the chocolate. 😉 What an amazing giveaway!
    I can’t believe that Storming is finally out! I plan to review it really quickly here, so the review should be up at Google+ and Goodreads within the next few days at most. Sorry it took me this long to get one formatted and sent to you!
    My sister wants to read and review the book as well, so if my parents agree, we should both be able to put a review up at Amazon. 🙂


  126. Cailin Scrib says

    This looks really exciting! Curious to see how the book goes and a very happy congratulations to you on your new book!

  127. The Kindle caught my eye first– then the beautiful journal!

  128. Elle Audrey says

    I think the prize that caught my eye the most were all of your books–I love to read, especially new things!

  129. Ooohhh…all the prizes sound wonderful but the steampunk pocket watch caught my eye first! Congratulations on your latest accomplishment!

  130. Everyone else: Sees kindle.
    Me: Wait coffee?
    Me: And FREE BOOKS(In physical form?!)?!
    Me: dead

  131. oops ignore that wrong email… 😛

  132. The signed paperbacks, the Kindle, and the leather bound journal (because journals are my peeve)

  133. Gerardine Baugh says

    Congratulations on the new book! Love your giveaways!

    Have a wonderful day!

  134. The books caught my eye first. We just moved and all my books are in storage and I neeeeeed more books! I miss them.

  135. Klara Lawson says

    The kindle and the autographed books caught my eye, but everything in the package looks great 🙂 Congrats on the book launch and thank you so much for all of your wonderful writing advice on this site.

  136. The plane and the book! I want to read it!

  137. The Kindle caught my eye first in the giveaway. The books also look great! I always enjoy a good read.

  138. Wow! How exciting!! Congratulations, you are amazing!! I look forward to reading your books (whether I win or not) <3 <3

  139. I found you by chance when I clicked on a link for your Why Every Story You Write Is A Guaranteed Failure. I’ve been in one of those depression writing slumps and was looking for help, so first off thank you. Second, I am so excited about this, I love historical fiction and that’s currently what I’m working on plus your website and podcast have so many useful things on them!

  140. P.S. just the idea of a book related contest gets me excited. The pocket watch has me more curious than a cat (excuse the cliche).

  141. I saw the red journal first.

  142. KM, I’m brand new at your site. Congratulations on the publication of your latest book!
    You have a wonderfully generous way of celebrating your book launch.

    The question asked as I was trying to sign up for the prize (I’m not even sure I was successfully signed up, but I really hope I was!) was which of the prizes caught my eye first. My first thought: Oh, that’s easy–the Kindle! Because, though the other prizes are really cool, the Kindle is what would be most useful to me.

    But then I thought, wait a minute! That’s in the figurative sense of ‘catching my eye’. In the almost-literal sense (almost), it was the model airplane. Because of its position on the page, and the way it’s all laid out, that what drew my eye first when I looked at the representation of the prize package.

    Am I the only one who manages to make answering that question complicated?

  143. Eva Malone says

    Another “too good to be true… Not!” giveaway from the fantabulous Weiland! Not to mention, another “too good to be true… Not!” story from the literary genius! We’re all pulling for Storming, and its amazing elements, to shine, and rock this world with its creative genius!

  144. Eva Malone says

    P.s. The journal immediately caught my eye!

  145. DianeEstrella says

    Super mega congrats to you on your latest book. I have had a crush on steampunk for a while now and yours is my first to read. WHEEEEEEE!

  146. Having loved your books so far, and being a fan of all things steam – even Diesel – I have to buy Storming at once.

  147. Well, I want to win a copy of Storming because I love dieselpunk, and the watch is very cool. Gotta have it. Thanks for the opportunity to win great prizes, the consistently useful writing advice, and congrats on your book baby!

  148. I love reading your articles, and have several of your books on writing! The coffee and the books caught my eye, of course – the two best things in life. 😉

  149. The journal is beautiful and definitely caught my eye! The book looks so cool, hopefully I can read it soon.

  150. Lorna G. Poston says

    Cool package. I can’t find that coffee here—tried to. Failed. 🙁

  151. I love historical fiction! I never knew there was a dieselpunk label but reminds me of Sky Captain and totally fits. I love that you are able to come up with something so unique yet familiar. I have to say the leather journal caught my eye first–one of my hobbies, though mine have more of a Harry Potter flavor for the grandkids.

  152. I love your podcast the most! You’re an inspiration. Thanks for sharing the giveaway, too.

  153. Congratulations! Looking forward to reading it!

  154. Suzan Robertson says

    I like the leather journal and the amazon gift card. I already purchased the Kindle version for myself and gifted my nephew, a fellow writer. We both have Kindles. The other gifts look awesome, but I have no need for them. 🙂 Congrats on the release!

  155. congrats. looking forward to a good read.

  156. So excited for my day off so I can read this! And my eye is on the gift card for Amazon because we can never have enough books!

  157. Kathy Reynolds says

    Congratulations! I’m so happy for you!

  158. Meredith S. says

    Wow! A chance to win great books? Count me in!

  159. I laughed when I saw you in that costume! I love it! (can’t tell you how much I love costumes-and you look gr8!) I have only four of your books so far but none of them are your fiction. I read your excerpts from Storming (and by the way, for me, it’s the best way to get me to buy a book) and you write dialogue really, really well! Your characters are charming and I’m intrigued by your premise! So, I’ll be buying it on my Nook- though I do want for a Kindle. Also, I am afflicted by chocoholism, and I must say, the Belgians do it best, so you’ve offered some very intriguing prizes! Best wishes for a wonderful launch!

  160. The Kindle caught my eye!

  161. First, I couldn’t get the comment box to allow me to write, so I’m answering the question here. 🙂 The first thing that caught my eye was the leather notebook. All writers understand the draw, I think. Then the paperback version of Storming then the Kindle Fire. I have an old, 2nd generation Kindle with no backlight so it looked sort of like “my p;precious” to me. 🙂
    I am so excited for you and no matter what, we all win with Storming. Can’t wait to read it. Comments will be in the review. Sending my blessings to you!
    I’m adding this launch to my Monster Marketing Series as it’s stellar. Your excitement is contagious and the triplane shots of the settings is pure genius.
    Thanks for bringing great stories, joy, and top-notch teaching our way! Congratulations!

  162. Marie Walker says

    The Kindle caught my eye first but I love everything else! So excited about the new book and I know it’ll be great! Congratulations!

  163. To tech challenged on my tablet to be able to enter other than this post. Kind of depressing. At least I can still read the books.

  164. The leather journal caught my eye right away.

  165. Looking forward to reading Storming!

  166. Congratulations!!!

    I love the A $25 Amazon gift certificate possibility 🙂 But the coffee is also eye-catching!

  167. Your novel sounds awesome and I would love to read it soon.
    The amazon gitft card catched my eyes as much as the beautiful notebook

  168. Great launch, Katie. Way to go. Looking forward to reading the book.

  169. I’ve been following your blog and podcast for a while now and just got a copy of Behold the Dawn and will definitely be checking out Storming. Though the whole grand prize package looks great, I think the best part would be signed copies of your books. 😉

  170. Coffee, truffles, and good books? Who could possibly resist? 😉

  171. Gosh what a lot of comments! Looking forward to reading your book.

  172. Barry Cowden says

    Storming is obviously the best prize here. If you had fun writinv it, it’ll clearly be a fun read – but I’ve been told not to buy anything for myself for Xmas by the kids – hints dropped though!

  173. Congratulations! This is a fantastic collection of prizes. I think the leather journal caught my eye first, but then I saw the chocolate! Yum!

  174. Wanda Dent says

    I love the vintage look of the journal. Actually , I love the whole package as it has all of my favorite things. I ordered the kindle version.
    Cant wait to start reading!

  175. Congratulations on the launch of your new book 🙂
    The first item that caught my eye was the Kindle, but then the second was definitely the Belgian truffles!

  176. Mikayla L. says

    Congrats… I can’t wait to read Storming!

  177. Congratulations on your new book. I would love signed copies 🙂

  178. Fantastic, I looking forward to a grand literary adventure, and great promo with the raffle! 🙂

  179. This is pretty exciting!

  180. The word “Prize!”

    Love the “thumbs up” photo!

  181. Just picked up Storming from Amazon! Looking forward to it! 🙂

  182. Marie cole says

    The Amazon gift card caught my eye first. Congrats on your new book launch!

  183. Truthfully, the hard copies of all your books!

  184. I think the first things to catch my eye were the books and the pocket watch. I love steampunk and dieselpunk too, so the book you just released sounds like something I might like to check out and read.

  185. Your enthusiastic endorsement of this book has given me the urge to check out your book. The prize package sounds amazing. The book is worth its weight in gold.

  186. MaryAnn Smith says

    It was very cool to have received an email from Amazon announcing the release of “Storming.” I look forward to getting a copy and nosediving into it, especially since my husband and I have gotten into Steampunk. My collection of K.M. Weiland’s books is growing! I have your how-to books; they are straightforward and of immeasurable worth as I attempt my first novel. And oh yeah, I’d LOVE to have that leather-bound journal in the prize package!!!

  187. The Kindle is a fabulous prize. Thanks for the chance tow in ALL of these wonderful items. 🙂

  188. Would enjoy the opportunity to read your novels, that’s what caught my eye. I’ve read and own your non-fiction. Now I’m starting to wonder which I should have read first (like the chicken and the egg).

  189. Kindles always catch my attention, but the books drew me in. Congratulations on your release! You excitement is contagious 🙂

  190. The word win then I saw the bi-plane and then the leather journal. You hook us up with great advice and then book us up as a winner! Thanks for the chance.

  191. What a fun contest! The first thing that caught my eye was the name that appeared: K.M. Weiland. (One of the best writers in the world!)
    I love your books. Thanks for running this competition.

  192. The Biplane and the journal both caught my eye. Could be because they are side by side. However, it doesn’t matter because they’re both cool.

  193. I’ll be honest, the kindle first caught my eye. But that leather journal looks spectacular too! Awesome giveaway! I can’t wait to read Storming!!

  194. Robin Witt says

    Wow! What a great prize bundle – a kindle AND all those books! You are the queen of giveaways. 🙂

    Happy Launch Day!

  195. I’m a new follower and would love to win!

  196. Giveaway that has a journal? I’m in!

  197. Hi…

    I’m so excited for your new book. In fact, I had also released a book this week too but it is a debut book and I feel much more like a rookie, making many mistakes in the marketing aspect. But I’m here to discuss your book many options especially the Belgian truffles, leather-bound journal and who could beat the Kindle giveaway???All the best to you!!!

  198. Happy Book Launch!

  199. Can’t wait to read it.

  200. Denise Esse says

    Wow, congrats. I like the signed books. I already own the ebooks, but do miss the feel of a paperback. Thank you for all the writing advice, and for this amazing giveaway. Cheers

  201. Amber Ashmore says

    Great giveaway! Kindle caught my eye first, but the rest sounds great!!!

  202. Jenny Bartoy says

    Congratulations on the launch of your novel! The whole prize package is pretty exciting. I think the journal and Amazon GC are most full of possibilities for me. (Of course, I’d love to check out your books, and the Kindle is a generous gift!) Thank you for this giveaway.

  203. Yay! Launch day!

  204. Chandra Crawford says

    Congratulations on your release. You’re new to me. The prizes that excited me most were paperbacks and coffee.

  205. The 25 dollar gift certificate caught my ee

  206. I love the writing books and the writing blog posts … I’m looking forward to reading your book … you’re so excited about it. I gotta say as well, I love how smiley you are in all your pictures. So cute! I’ll try to remember to repost with comments after I’ve read Storming.

  207. That’s an outstanding and generous prize package.

  208. Oh, and the kindle/ $25 Gift Certificate caught my eye first. But close behind were signed copies of your books. I loved the audiobooks for outlining and structure, and you reference them … but it’s not my usual genre, so it would be nice to see. Of course, I did just buy storming, so I can see how you put it all into practice. Oh, and thanks for the scrivener templates.

  209. I am so excited about this book. It looks amazing and I hope it does as well as I believe it will!
    Good luck to everyone!

  210. Nicole Cruz says

    Looking forward to reading this!

  211. Cool giveaway! Your new book sounds very exciting:) The first thing that caught my eye was the Kindle, (mine is literally beginning to fall apart) but I love the watch too! It’s pretty nifty.

  212. Honestly, all of the prizes sound amazing (especially the coffee and the chocolate…), but the Kindle would definitely be the most handy of the bunch. I’ve been reading kindle books on my little iPhone 4. 😛 Just finished Dreamlander by the way! I was a bit dismayed by the twist at the end, but I’ve decided it’s actually the perfect touch. Awesome work! I’m looking forward to Storming. 🙂

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      Psst. I do have a Dreamlander sequel in the works. I get to start work on it next year. Can’t wait! 🙂

  213. Hey! Congratulations on Storming!!

    I love your site and I’m really interested in reading your books. I just can’t afford them right now, so that’s the thing that caught my eye the most about your prizes!

    ~Sarah Anne

  214. Congrats on the new novel. Sounds like a fun read — and I love the way you launched it.
    All the best!
    Judy Christie

  215. The journal caught my eye first – but all the prizes look great. The signed copies would be the best.

  216. Signed books would be the perfect Christmas gift — although that Kindle is kickin’ too!

  217. The leatherbound journal (or, truthfully the coffee as well) for me and the pocket watch for my 12 year old who is timepiece MAD! (She’s got like over 40 watches and clocks.)

  218. Chris Bailey says

    The book DOES sound like fun! Which prize caught my eye? Kindle–because I read words better than pictures. But studying the list? I’m into the toys. The pocket watch! The model plane! The journal! Best wishes on your launch!

  219. That model bi-plane looks great as a gift for my son!

  220. Looks good!

  221. Congratulations and good luck with Storming!

    Hard to tell what I’d like to win most. All good choices. The red leather journal caught my eye first, the kindle is always a good win, but I’d also love the rest of the bundle. No idea 😀

  222. Peggy Bjarno says

    Leather journals make a writer want to find that isolated cabin and write with a fountain pen. . .

    Thanks for all the help you give other writers!

  223. Anni Corley says

    Best wishes on your latest book!

  224. Hi there K.M. a.k.a. Katie! Your new book sounds awesome. I will have to add it to my Christmas stocking list! 😉 I just have one question though: in order to enter your fab contest, do you need to live in the U.S./Canada, or can anyone in the world enter? (I currently live in England).

    As a passing comment, I’d also like to thank you for your continued generosity in helping writers on this site – it’s always a pleasure to read your thoughts on creative writing, and I look forward to hearing from you on this occasion! (another) Katie (who’s a writer) 🙂

  225. I’m a loyal follower of your blog, and am excited to read some of your books!

  226. Congratulations on the new novel, it seems like it’ll be good!

    Man, there are so many choices, I don’t know what ones I like best. The signed copies of your books are cool, but that watch… It’s a tie between the books, the watch, and the journal. I just can’t decide.

  227. Ooh! Sounds like a good book! Congratulations on getting it written 🙂

  228. I just texted my kids & told them to get this book for me for Christmas! Can’t wait to read it. And thanks for the fantastic giveaway opportunity!

  229. Meagan Williford says

    The Kindle caught my eye!

  230. The sounds awesome! The Kindle first caught my eye, but your new book sounds really neat. I also love the beautiful journal. Congrats on another book published!

  231. I would love the kindle. I read all the time!

  232. I’ve been waiting for this book to come out ever since you posted your first chapter forever ago. I’m so excited to finally find out what happens next!

  233. All of the the books caught my eye first. I have always wondered what the books are like.

  234. kindle caught my eye first; then the promo for the novel mentioned a time and place that interest me.

  235. I’m so excited for you, and excited to read this new addition! I’m glad it was so fun for you to write and am anxious to have fun reading it.
    And this giveaway sounds magical! I’d love the signed books.

  236. Love the autographed bundle of your fiction novels, and that journal is beautiful! Thanks again for the opportunity. Congratulations on the launch of Storming!

  237. I really enjoyed Dreamlander, and I’m looking forward to Storming. I just want the book, more than the prizes. Thank you for writing, while you teach us to write too.

  238. The biplane replica caught my eye, but the Kindle is what I’d really want. By the way, I’m into chapter 6 and loving it!

  239. Congratulations on the release of Storming! Its a pleasure to read!
    Thank you for the opportunity of your give-away, the Kindle caught my eye at first, but the signed paperbacks came in a close second. If I should be so lucky to win, I want to give the Kindle to my teenage daughter. She loves to read but hasn’t fully explored the world of e-books yet. Of course, she’d probably wrestle with me over your paper backs; somehow my paperbacks/hardbacks end up in her room. All of the “goodies” in your gift basket are enticing, we’ll call them the icing on the book cake…

  240. Congratulations! Looks like a really fun book & contest.

  241. Dr. Kenneth R. Cooper says

    Have read the first chapter of Storming and am captivated. Looking forward to the rest of the story. I love adventure & mystery and this story offers both. Way to go, Katie!

  242. Congratulations, K. M. I’m excited to STORM Kindle store for my e-copy. Your how-tos on novel structure and outlining are enough motivation. I wish I can fly in from Lagos, Nigeria to take part in the launch draw. God bless you, fellow fighter and writer.

  243. The book looks fantastic. I wish I had more time for reading, but I’m buried alive under my review queue and editing commitments. Best of luck!

  244. Kindle

  245. This is an amazing giveaway. I would love a copy of all your books, as I appreciate all the help you give to newbie writers like me.

  246. Congratulations on your latest book! I’m so happy I’ve had the opportunity to thank you for all your support this year. Talented and with a huge heart. I don’t know where you find the time but just know I appreciate your help – and I’m glad you’re out there writing and helping those of us floundering!

  247. Emily Grace Claggett says

    Well, the Kindle jumped out at me, but honestly the thing I’m most interested in is probably the pocket watch! As a huge Doctor Who fan, lover of all things fantasy, and someone who’s beginning to be interested in Steampunk, the idea of a steampunk pocket watch is delightful! Looking forward to this chance to try my luck!

  248. The kindle and the coffee caught my eye first. What writer doesn’t want/need coffee?

  249. Linda Zastawnik says

    I would love to win this package. Can’t wait to read Storming – I’m a Steampunk fan, and now I’ve progressed to Dieselpunk after reading the blurbs.

  250. Mary E. Hammer says

    Stormings sounds like quite an exciting adventure! Alas, I shall say in truth that since I was hungry, the truffles first caught my eye– or maybe I should say my stomach. But upon a second look, I do believe I found an immediate attraction to the book copies and leather-bound journal.

  251. I can’t hardly wait to read this book. I try to do something else, worth while and needful but I find myself waiting to read and not working.

  252. Storming looks like great fun, I love dieselpunk, and I haven’t found a lot of it outside of shorts and graphic novels, so I’m super excited to dive in.

    I think the first prize that caught my eye was the journal, I’m a journaling fiend, but the signed books are what I’d like the most. I have most of them, but all in kindle format, so it would be lovely to have the whole signed collection. Plus coffee AND chocolate? This may well be the best giveaway ever 😀

  253. Dieselpunk? Never heard of it, but sounds like just the thing I’ve been looking for. Both to read and possibly add to my WIP. Congrats on the new book, looking forward to reading it.

  254. Mmmm … chocolate, coffee and a good book. What more could a reader ask for?

  255. Andrea Rhyner says

    I love that you are giving away prizes! I already have your books but to have signed ones from you, and/or a signed journal from you for me to take story idea notes in, would be the BOMB. 🙂

  256. Great work on your book, sure it will become a big success, the competition seems awesome, especially the Watch and Biplane.

  257. The first thing that drew my attention was the Kindle, but new books to read and a leather-bound journal would go with it nicely!

  258. So excited to read your book! Everything in the package looks awesome, but the kindle caught my eye.

  259. Kinza Sheikh says

    Such a long list of reasons I totally wanna win this time. :/
    Whatever, good luck to all of my rivals in the giveaway. Lets see who gets it. 😀

  260. loretta chefchaouni says

    Great books, plus coffee and chocolate. I think this prize pack was designed especially for ME!!

  261. Congratulations! I can tell how much you love this book with a passion. <3

    I really want to read it now:)

  262. Mitch Weaver says

    LOL…the “Cafe La Llave” caught my eye first. I haven’t seen that since I left Miami 15 years ago. 😀

  263. The kindle, gift card, coffee, and books ALL caught my eye!

  264. The red book!!

  265. Congratulations, Katie! Your newest book is so fantastic. I love Storming, and hope it gets into the hands of many thousands of readers! You’re my role model for a modern-day author I want to imitate and be like. I love your kind interaction on social media along with your quality writing. 😉

    The prize that caught my eye (besides the Kindle) is the autographed collection of your books. That would be amazing! And I love the fact that you included a steampunk pocket watch as well. 🙂


  266. So exciting…a new book from KMW. Hooray. Love how you launch your books with so much fun. Th Kindle caught my eye first…then thethoughtful gift card to go along with it.
    Good luck with this new title.

  267. Eric Stallsworth says

    This is an awesome giveaway. Thank you for always doing so much for your fans and those of who enjoy everything you do.

  268. A.P. Lambert says

    That Replica Biplane looks awesome!

    Congrats on another book!
    Not to come off flighty, but you really are an inspiration to us all. 🙂

  269. The first thing that caught my eye was the autographed copies. I loved Dreamlander and I’m sure I’ll enjoy Storming just as much. Hope you’re having a great launch!

  270. Laura Lesko says

    Congratulations!! The book looks GREAT!

  271. The free copies of your books, the journal, and the kindle caught my eye.

  272. I’ve started the book and am excited. Mostly I’m excited for you, Ms. Weiland. You have accomplished great things. I love the idea of a contest and all you’ve set up here. Anything would be lovely to win. Who doesn’t like to win, or at least think they might. I think the signed paperbacks would be lovely. Or the Kindle, or any of the prizes as, well, who doesn’t like actually winning something! You’re a winner ;-P

  273. Looking forward to the new book!

  274. I don’t understand. I shared the post to google + and it won’t give me a point! What did I do wrong???

    • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

      So sorry you’re having trouble with the widget! Have you tried copy/pasting the URL of your share into the “Share Link” section of the widget?

      • Yes, and it showed up like I completed it at first, but then when I came back it acted as if I had never done it.

        • K.M. Weiland | @KMWeiland says

          Ah, that would because you have the option to do complete that entry every day to earn more points. Don’t worry, your original entry has been logged! If you want to do it once more, you can earn another point.

  275. What an amazing prize! You are so generous and I can’t wait to get your book.

  276. Lilly Anderson says

    I like the idea of a kindle and the coffee! And books to read!

  277. Biplanes? Dieselpunk? Count me in!

  278. Lilly Anderson says

    The Kindle and the coffee are making me very happy now!

  279. Thank you so much for all your helpful writing posts. I read and re-read them at least once a day when I’m writing!

  280. Congratulations! The Kindle caught my eye first 😉

  281. That leather bound journal really caught my attention! Gorgeous!

  282. Congratulations! So excited to read this one! What caught my eye first? Definitely the biplane, but also that you’ve included signed copies of all of your novels!

  283. Curtis Manges says

    Such a nice assortment of goodies you have there, and a very clever way of promoting your book, too!

    Someone’s going to be a happy reader!

  284. Melissa Keaster says

    Super excited to read this book!

  285. Your podcasts on writing have been incredibly helpful to me in getting started in writing fiction.

  286. ShennonDoah Helms says

    Congrats on the new book! Since I spent part of my childhood in western Nebraska, and still live in Nebraska, I am very excited to read a book set in this beautiful state. Plus, I am a huge supporter of Nebraska authors.

  287. It was the journal that caught my eyes first. So scarlet. Then I looked at all the other things, and thought ‘what a perfect package!’

  288. I’ve been waiting to read – excited launch day is finally here!

  289. The leather-bound journal caught my eye first, yet the entire bundle is superb. Thanks for the ongoing help for writers and congratulations, K.M. Weiland!

  290. Congratulations on Storming! It sounds like a great story.

    I Tweeted and Pinned. Have a great day!

  291. Wow! To choose which catches my eye first is not just one item, but all. I journal, therefore, love-love-love leather-bound journal, the kindle would be a super replacement as I have an oldie-but-works kindle… and then there is all the super reading! Hmm

  292. This sounds like an interesting book! And such a nice thing to offer the prizes. A kindle? Wow. Your two books, Structuring your novel and Outlining your novel have been a wonderful help to me so far. I used the skills I learned to complete my NaNoWriMo book last month.

  293. Congratulations on your latest book! Looks like a winner. 🙂 Thanks so much for offering the giveaway!

  294. The Kindle

  295. Congratulations! What a thoughtfully put together prize pack too! 🙂

  296. Laura Hansen says

    I’ve always wanted to read your Outlaw book–I love westerns!

  297. Love the sound of this one! Diesel punk might just be my new thing.

    What caught my eye first? The kindle but that was quickly followed by all the other snuggly swag, books coffee, chocolate … a bi-plane! What’s not to love!


  299. Dana McNeely says

    I like bi-planes but my husband LOVES them. We are still looking for a lego version that was retired several years ago. I’d LOVE a new kindle, even though I’m still happily reading on my original black and white version.

  300. Looks great – can’t wait for this book to come out!

  301. Hi KM! Life is full of adventures and can’t wait to read Storming! Whew hew! Never a dull moment right? SO TRUE. And a big THANK YOU for giving back to the writing community. You are true awesomeness.


  302. Congrats, I got my copy of Storming to read later this month. I’m reading A Man Called Outlaw right now. Thanks for your help to all who aspire to be writers also.

  303. I like your site and hope you will tell us how this promotion method worked out for you. I haven’t seen the Raffelcopter widget before. Very interesting.

    These days I mostly read (and write) suspense, but the Dieselpunk novel might be a fun read. I’ll check it out.

  304. Looks as fun to read as it was to write! And as I have not yet read your other books, having those copies (especially *signed* :D) would be so cool!!

  305. The prize pack is excellent! The journal and Kindle caught my eye. Congratulations on the book. I got my copy earlier last week and can’t wait to dive into the story.

  306. Heather Culler says

    The kindle caught my eye because I really need one. I live in a small space and while I LOVE paperback books I dont have the room for all the books I want to get so storing them up on a kindle would help with space issue. And I also need a kindle…my computer doesnt work and I have a novel to finish rewriting. Im typing this on my phone as we speak… a Kindle means a bigger screen and I can get a keyboard to plug into it; and get my novel typed out and completed. Also would be great to take to writers conferences and take notes with as well. Better than lugging around a notebook and folder and such. 🙂

  307. As I read DREAMLANDER, told my friend about it. She bought her own copy and loved it! I am starting STORMING today and I will be telling her about it as well.

  308. Poppy Wrote says

    All the giveaways look great as does the cover of the new book. What caught my eye was the plane. 🙂

  309. Exciting concept! I’ll have to read this book. 🙂

  310. I really enjoyed Dreamlander, so I’m looking forward to reading this. Oh, and both the Kindle and the leather-bound journal caught my eye.

  311. Wow! Great suite of gifts… I don’t really need a Kindle (I use an app on my iPad) but love the whole package!!

  312. As much as my son would love that plane or my daughter would love the Kindle, the first thing that caught my eye was that beautiful leather bound journal.

  313. Congratulations! What a creative book launch!

  314. Signed copies of you books caught my eye as well as the gift card – so I can purchase your Outlining books. 😉

    I’m so very excited for you in this new venture. I’m intrigued by this story and can’t wait to read it.

  315. Great giveaway! I’d love to win more of your books and of course the kindle. You’ve helped me with my writing. Thanks.

  316. I am in love with the Storming cover!!! <3

  317. Congratulations! Launch Day!! I can only imagine what that must be like. I imagine it is wonderful.

  318. Congratulations! I can’t wait to read it!

  319. A new book and already 19 reviews on Amazon. Proof you have a loyal following. Keep those books coming.

  320. Signed copies of your book! I’d be in heaven. 🙂

  321. I think for me it was the kindle that first caught my eye, because it is so prominently advertised. 😛 But after that I think it would be the signed copy of your book(s), and the gift card. 🙂 I probably won’t win because I’m only going to have one entry, but still it’s fun to see authors get so stoked about their new books! You do a great job getting people excited about your novels.

  322. Congrats for your new book! Just added it to my Goodreads list. 🙂

  323. Which prize caught my eye first? Books, books, more books. Bit of an addict.

  324. Becky Avella says

    The first thing that caught my eye on the graphic was the red journal and the word Kindle. But when I read the list of prizes, I got really excited about the $25 giftcard, the coffee brick, and the chocolate. I imagined myself reading the books I bought while I sipped the “best” coffee and munched on the truffles. Thank you for such a great giveaway. I hope you are enjoying your launch.

  325. I absolutely adore your books on writing K.M, the what-ifs question exercise is something that I never would have thought of on my own but it has changed my life!
    I’ve been wanting to read your fiction works for a while now but with an ever growing to be read pile, I had been procrastinating buying them. To add to that, the charging port on my kindle recently broke (hear the sound of me sobbing in the distance) but I’ve been wanting to read Steampunk for a while but Dieselpunk sounds even more my style.
    Also, where did you get that leather bound journal? It is absolutely beautiful!

  326. Congratulations on your launch!! The KIndle and the journal caught my eyes.

  327. I’m so excited about the chance to possibly win all of your books! I love your writing!

  328. Probably the Kindle and $25 amazon gift card caught my attention first

  329. Wonderful giveaway, and I’m excited for you about your new book! All of the potential gifts look amazing (and I would love copies of your books), but personally, the Kindle is most enticing one since I need to replace mine and funds are low this holiday season.

    Congrats about the new book, and I look forward to reading!

  330. Awesome Giveaway! And Congrats on the new book 🙂

  331. The airplace caught my eye first 🙂 congratulations on the launch!

  332. Can’t pick – the entire bundle looks awesome. 🙂

  333. Congratulations on the new book. I have read two of your books so far and though I havent read Dieselpunk ever, i cant wait to get my hands on this one. The plane replica and the kindle caught my eye first but now I want everything. I feel like a kid in a toystore. Help!

  334. The Kindle caught my eye first, but then I saw all four books and I love the idea of getting all four together (and they’re signed!), and then I thought that the pocket watch looks so cool, but the truffles made my mouth water and… oh, I just can’t decide which is the best bit. What I have decided is that you’re a very generous lady to give them all away, and the person who gets them will be so happy. I wish you all the best with the launch of your new book. It looks engaging, exciting and everything that a great read should be! I’ve never read dieselpunk before and am looking forward to enjoying it!

  335. Congratulation on your newest book. I had not heard the term “dieselpunk” before. Thanks for the newest bit of knowledge.

  336. Congratulations on the launch of your new book!
    The signed books would be a great addition to my library. I’ve never had a kindle but I sure would like to try one.

  337. The things that caught my eye first were the Kindle (even though I am normally a real book person) and that lovely biplane. I love planes!

    Congratulations on the release of your new book!! Also, thank you for all your writing articles, your advice, and being such an inspiration!

    Prizes in the bundle that caught my eye first were the Leather Bound Journal, signed paperbacks, and Kindle. But everything looks great!

  339. Ummm… The kindle or the gift card probably caught my eye first.
    Happy launch!

  340. Kristine Drumm says

    Excited to read your new book. You had fun writing it, I know I’ll have fun reading it!

  341. The Amazon gift card caught my eye 🙂

  342. Congrats on the new book. ..signed books and Kindle. Rest is cool too

  343. The whole package looks amazing! I’m really excited about getting a copy of your book! I’ve never read anything like it. The journal also caught my eye, as did the necklace/locket. And is that coffee?? Thanks for hosting a giveaway! And congrats on your release!

  344. Ooh, your books first caught my eye! And the Amazon gift card so I can *buy* more books. 😀

  345. Candida Nunez says

    Good luck with your latest publication, Katie! You are one of the very first people I followed on twitter. I still greatly enjoy our interactions. #steampunkfever

  346. I really want to win, so I can brew some coffee, then sit down to read your novel and eat chocolate! I also love all the nostalgic items, especially the pocket watch!

  347. Carrie-Grace M says

    This giveaway looks amazing. o.o The books caught my eye first, but all the prizes sound fabulous!! Congratulations on getting another book published! =)

  348. The four signed books definitely caught my eye first. 🙂 I love Behold the Dawn, and have been meaning to get some of your other books too. And I definitely will, even if I don’t win. I also would love having an extra copy of Behold the Dawn so I can give one to my friend. 🙂
    Thank you for this amazing giveaway!

  349. Storming sounds utterly fascinating. I can’t wait to read it someday!

    Of the prizes, the ones that excite me the most are your books, the gift card, the journal, and chocolate. ^_^

  350. Well now I know what I’m putting on my Christmas list this year!

  351. I love your book “Outline Your Novel”! I have a copy on my shelf and I often talk about it when writer-friends ask about my writing process.

    Hm, which prize first caught my eye? Well, I’ve been eyeing your fiction for a long time…I would be most excited to get a copy of each! 😀 Thanks for doing the giveaway. I review spec fiction on my blog and it would be a pleasure to review yours.


  352. I want this!! The whole prize bundle is irresistible…

  353. Amazon gift cards will always catch my eye, as will interesting-looking books. And Kindles. Kindles are wonderful. Basically the pack as a whole caught my eye.

  354. Oh, gosh, I think I might have accidentally submitted the link for the same tweet twice because it passed midnight and it said I only had one entry (and I was supposed to have two because I left a comment). But the entry total is correct now, so maybe I didn’t…?

  355. I like the prize of the $25 Amazon Gift Card the most of all of the great and lovely package.

  356. Crimson Knight says

    Amazing giveaway! Thanks for the awesome opportunity. ? Can’t wait to read.

  357. Well, I left a comment but for some reason it didn’t come up!
    Anyways, what I tried to say was that the 4 signed copies of your books first caught my eye. 🙂
    Congratulations to whoever won!

  358. Congratulations on the release of TWO novels! I am glad for you and know you are excited. Wayfarer sounds really interesting, and I plan to buy it. I am close, so close to the final rendition/revision of my novel, Caden’s Crime. Thanks for your guidance and all the sharing you give us about writing.

  359. Wow, so sad I just read this book! This was one of my favorites!
    Katie, you are one (if not my top) favorite authors. Every book of yours I read, I am amazed at how well it is written and how much I enjoyed it. I am really looking forward to reading Dreambreaker! Keep up the good work!
