Check out our newly integrated shop page!

Hello, readers!

We made some changes to our shop today! Instead of the “catalog” page we used to have, we now have a “shop” that’s fully integrated into your browsing experience.

You can now sort books by category, price, and popularity. You can also scroll between them with ease and view the contents of your cart from any page.

We hope these changes will improve your experience, and we look forward to hearing your feedback!

Stay tuned for more big announcements this month as we gear up to add even more enhancements to the website and our Discord server!

Sincerely,

The Kyanite Crew

New Kyanite Press Online Article

Loose Body Parts: How to Keep them Attached in Fiction
by Constance Watson

Who here loves zombies? I know I do! Zombie stories are by far one of my favorite genres. But no matter how much you love zombies, that doesn’t mean that every character should be one, which unfortunately is what tends to happen. Unintended zombification can be a huge problem. Why, you ask?

Writer Wednesday Webcasts

As you may have seen on social media, we started a Writer Wednesday webcast last month. All of our authors and Kyanite Press contributors are invited to attend each week. We have a theme for each “episode” and so far we’ve talked about characters, world building, first drafts, author branding, and publishing.

Our last episode was recorded on 5/22/2019, and it marked the first time we had invited authors who weren’t associated with our publishing company to attend. The topic was publishing, and we had been looking forward to a roundtable full of experience in self-publishing, hybrid publishing, and traditional small and large press publishing.

Our target audience for these webcasts are both readers and writers who are curious about the publishing industry and the craft of writing. We’re very pleased so far with the turnout and we’re planning to expand our YouTube channel with additional webcasts. We’re also planning to move into podcasting, which we’ll be experimenting with later this year.

If you haven’t yet, check out our YouTube channel and subscribe! If you’re feeling especially generous, share it with your friends and family who love reading or writing!

Cover Reveal – Life2 by Aisha Tritle

We are so excited to reveal the Life2 cover! This awesome science fiction story by Aisha Tritle is a thrill ride with deep themes and amazing characters.

Astrid was brought back six months ago for one purpose: to help restore balance in the city.

Cursed with a past she can barely remember, Astrid fills her role as an assassin with ease. Every day, she kills Unworthies – those deemed unfit to be a part of the society so carefully constructed after the Infirmum swept through the earth a hundred years ago, leaving all of the children dead and all of the adults infertile.  

Humanity now relies on a weekly injection of Curat to survive. Everyone is young, beautiful, and almost immortal – including the enigmatic doctor who renewed her, Michael.   

As the city is pushed into a new ice age, Astrid realizes she knows dangerously little about the place she lives and the people she kills for. Her trigger finger begins to fail her, and she fears she might be labeled as Unworthy next. When Michael draws her into a rebellion, secrets begin to come out, and the worst one might belong to the past she forgot. As she starts to remember and Michael tells her the true reason he’s been able to survive for so long, Astrid finds out she won’t just have to save the city, she will also have to decide what it truly means to be human.

Pre-order it here!
