Rise Of A New Dynasty

Sorry I haven’t been good about hopping around to visit everyone this week. We’re on spring break, which means I’m in  my writing cave, busy at work on 18 Thoughts (the third installment of the My-So Called Afterlife Trilogy). I did have a really cool start to my break on Friday/Saturday when I participated in a huge reading festival, but I’m saving that story for my next Insecure Writer Support Group post 🙂
But today you’re in for a treat! Katie Teller, the author of the best-selling KIYA trilogy, is here for an exclusive interview!
J: Tell us 3 words to describe your personality
K: I asked my hubby for these so they might be a bit bias – Fun, bright, and lovable.
J: Give us a sneak peek into what your daily writing routine is like.
K: Routine? Wow, I wish! I fit it in whenever I can. I usually try to get up before my sweet child and do a little in the morning, then squeeze in a few hours during “nap time” in the afternoon, then a few more before bed. Basically, if I have a moment, I use it.
J: What’s the inside scoop on Kiya 3.
K: Kiya 3 is my personal favorite of the trilogy. Everything comes to a head, secrets are revealed, and Naomi finds her peace. It’s by far the most emotional book, with things you know are coming, and twists you won’t expect.
J: What’s your favorite craft book? Favorite fiction book?
K: I don’t actually read craft books. I’m your trial and error girl. I learn better that way, by doing. Always have.
My favorite fiction book? Hmm… Ella Enchanted has held out as a beloved favorite since I was a kid.
J: Can you give us a fun tidbit about yourself?
K: I’m really into singing and sports. I originally started studying to be a P.E teacher, until I uprooted and moved across the world to marry my hubby. It’s funny where life leads you.
Kiya 3

Amazon B&N Kobo Goodreads

Tut has grown into his position as Pharaoh, but he is a wild young man. Naomi fears for him, not only because of his recklessness, but because he has put his trust in Ay–the man determined to destroy Naomi—despite her and Horemheb advising against it.

Meanwhile, death and slavery hang over Naomi and her family. With fear of the booming Hebrew numbers causing talk of enslaving them, conscription is reinstated and Naomi fears
for the lives of her other children. Especially since Ay’s children are now adults, and just as dangerous as their father. They threaten to take Itani, conspire against Tut, and pushing for power.

But Tut is in trouble. While Ay’s daughter draws Horemheb’s attention, and Naomi deals with the struggles of her family, everyone’s distraction could spell death for the young Pharaoh.

It is funny where life leads you! Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by, Katie!
What have you been up to everyone? Do you forgive me for neglecting you?

  1. Jamie, take those precious writing times when you can. Blogs can wait. Thanks so much for introducing us to Katie.

    Katie, with a positive attitude like yours, you will have a long and successful writing career. Thanks for visiting today 🙂

  2. Glad to hear you’re getting some writing it! I never read Ella Enchanted but I loved the movie! KIYA sounds really interesting. I enjoy period stories. Best of publishing success 🙂

  3. Of course I forgive you, Jamie! (And honestly, is not blogging because you’re writing your book really all that wrong?)
    Hi Katie! Thanks for telling us about your stories. I love trilogies! Yours sounds amazing–I’m going to check it out. 🙂

  4. Good job Jamie, working on spring break!
    I love ancient Egypt! I guess I just love all the mystery. Oddly enough, my grandmother fell and broke a rib in a pyramid, in current times, not ancient. 🙂 Anyway, the book sounds fascinating and original.
