Blog Tour Tales Of Ferres – By K. M. Jenkins

Today I’m participating in K. M. Jenkins’ Blog Tour for her book ‘Tales Of Ferres’. Please find below information about the book, the story, and in particular, an interview with the author. Enjoy!


Welcome!

Please introduce yourself.

Well lets start things off with my name since obviously I don’t go by K.M. in my everyday life. My name is Katie Jenkins and I’m an International Best selling Speculative Fiction author. I have published 10 short stories in my Tales of Ferrês series and now published them all together in their very own bundle book. I’m also a stay at home mom two twin boys. I also have a bachelors in graphic design and create all my own logos along with most of my covers. I do side jobs like being a PA for two awesome authors of two completely different genres. They do fantasy like myself so that is the common ground between us three. I live in a boring city in Iowa called Sioux City and I love every second of it. It means I get plenty of time to spend with my kids and live in my own imagination.

1. When did you start writing?

I started writing over five years ago. I started to publish a few short stories back then but quit. School got in the way then I moved to be near my boyfriend. Then life just kind of sucked all my time with work. After that I got back into my writing after the boys were born in 2017. I moved back with my fiancé to Sioux City due to health issues. I needed an outlet so I started to write again. Then in September of 2018 I published the first story in my Tales of Ferrês short story series. After that I tried to keep things going with a new release each month. I failed a few times but I did manage to finish in March of 2020. Now I am putting the closing doors on this series and working on my next.

2. What motivates you to write?

I love writing for my readers and myself. It is kind of like an easy way for me to express myself and keep my mind on other things. I have depression and anxiety which means I need coping skills to help me through stormy winds. Writing is an outlet I enjoy and helps me keep my head on straight. Also I love seeing reviews by readers that enjoyed the tale. Just makes me want to write even more.

3. What genre do you write in and what made you chose this particular genre?

I write both fantasy and paranormal romance. I tend to write towards the younger crowd so most of my works tend to be young adult or new adult in target audience. Since I write within the fantasy sub-genres too I brand myself as a speculative fiction author. It kind of covers all the basis at once.
Why did I choose this genre? Well I grew up reading the fantasy genre every chance I got. I pretty much devoured any book in the fantasy genre I could get my hands on. Paranormal Romance came along later when I started reading more of those books in my adult years. A lot of those books though are rated for 18+ years or older though.

4. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you?

My main goal in writing is to one day make a living on it like a day job. I would love to write for my career. I just have to keep the momentum going. My dream would be to publish a USA Today bestselling book. But I am probably years away from that. Another would making enough money to buy a house to live in. I am okay with making a steady living I don’t need the fame.

5. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and if yes, how do you deal with it?

I struggle with this a lot. Usually what gets me out of it is reading books. I will just sit down and read book after book until I get the urge to get up and write. Another thing I do is work on two projects. If I get stuck on one I go to the other until finally the day comes the next scene smacks me in the face for my prior project.

6. What advice would you like to give new, hopeful authors?

Strongly suggest to build your target audience and fan base as soon as possible. I started out writing a series of short stories to grow my fan base. It is still small but growing each day. Then when I get my longer books out I hope to have individuals interested enough in buying them.

7. Please, tell us about your work.

Right now I am bringing my Tales of Ferrês book to a close. This book features creatures from kyres (wolf-shifters), unicorns, spider monters, elves, dwarves and mages. I got a story for everyone to enjoy. The book features a different character for each tale but has the common element of the Forest of Ferrês. They get drawn inside its depths and have to find out why they are there in order to leave alive.
I do have another book in the works called Gargoyle Sighted. It features Cassie Armel and she is a cop thrown into the world of supernatural creatures. Little does she know she is one herself. I actually release a chapter a month in my newsletter to my subscribers. It is an on going project that I plan to offer to my subscribers free on release day of the book. If you would be interested in picking up this book to give it a try all you have to do is subscribe to my newsletter here: https://www.subscribepage.com/y2i1x7.

Thank you for being my guest. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!

Demon Tracker Blog Tour

Less than twenty minutes later, I received a message from Michael. I was strictly ordered not to do anything but stay where I was. Andreas would pick me up a little later. In the meantime, I could work out in the gardens with some of the angels if I wanted to.

“I’m sorry, Zye. I must leave at once,” Uriel whispered. He kissed my cheek and was gone.

I worked out with Robbie and Daniel while Maria watched us carefully. All three of them were excellent sword fighters and we had a good time. After the workout, I rinsed the sweat off my body, dressed in black pants and a white t-shirt and went outside again to sit down and just enjoy nature for a while.
I watched frogs climbing out the pond, sparrows and hummingbirds flying and hopping all over the place and butterflies filling the air with breathtaking colors.

After a while, Andreas sat down next to me on the white bench. “Hello, Zye.”
“Hi, Andreas. I was told you were supposed to take me somewhere?”

He smiled. “Not just somewhere, Zye. You will be meeting the ‘Council of Twelve’.”

I froze. “Are you joking?”

Magic can’t be real, right? Tell that to the werewolf glaring at me with his near-black eyes or the handsome vampire lounging in the corner.

Did I enjoy growing up rejected by everyone I encountered because of my physical abnormalities? Hell no! The only thing I ever wanted was to be accepted by someone. Not everyone, just anyone. A normal job and one solid meal a day would’ve been nice too.

You know that old saying, “Be careful what you wish for?”
Yeah, that one really sucks.

After a vampire kidnapped me, I suddenly became wanted by all the wrong people. Why would those blood sucking fiends want a deformed, malnourished woman who looked more like a little girl? The elemental mage who stole me from the vampires and forced me into a role I wasn’t prepared for, didn’t provide any explanations.

I thought I wanted to know the answers, but discovering the truth forced me into a fight for my life. One I wasn’t sure I could win.

Mermaid Giveaway!

“Darius.” It came out choking from his chapped lips, and his head jerked as he tried to look up into her face.
“What now?”
“‘S my name. Darius. Thank you.”
Of all the humans drowning around her, she had to be stuck with the one who bothered to mind his manners as he was dying. She bit back a laugh. “Well, good to know. Stay alive, Darius.”
“Death feels so warm,” he whispered, those brown eyes hooded as they looked into hers. “Didn’t know there were mermaids in heaven. Ice mermaids…So beautiful. Jewels for eyes, pearls for hair.”
Behind them, the great ship that had the words “Titanic” painted on its bow was cracking as it tilted into the freezing waters of the ocean.

Lorelei gave a frustrated sigh and tightened her hold on him.

Ice Mermaid is a Salt for Air novella about a mermaid who witnesses the sinking of the Titanic.

Epic Fantasy for $2.99!

Hey, this is Roselyn… Ugh. Why Do I do that? I hate how I always start these entries. I mean seriously; this is my journal. I’m easily two hundred pages in. It’s not like this is something new.
Anyway, I’m stalling. This is actually harder to write than I thought it would be. I haven’t even told my girls yet. I mean, how am I going to tell them I’ve fallen for one of the few people here who could kill me? One of the few people I promised my parents I would avoid at all costs.
How do I tell Evony that all I can think about is the son of the woman responsible for nearly causing her race to become extinct? How do I tell LIra, whose prophecies are taken with high regard by the Realm Keepers, that I’m ignoring her advice and meeting him tonight?
I know it’s wrong. I know I can literally have anyone else in this school, but I can’t get him out of my mind.
Something bigger is at play here.
How I feel isn’t natural; there’s no way.
So tonight, I’m going to meet him. Tonight, I will make Thayer tell me what the hell is going on.
-Until tomorrow … providing that Lira isn’t right and I don’t die the second he has me alone.

Michelle always knew the head cheerleader who stole her boyfriend was demonic. She just didn’t realize Janice was an actual demon. And that’s not even the most interesting revelation of Michelle’s eighteenth birthday—also, coincidentally, prom night. She also learns that she is a half-angel warrior. And nothing could make for a more satisfying birthday-prom than sending that demon cheerleader straight back to hell. Then she discovers that her parents didn’t die when she was 16, after all. They’re alive, and they need her help. What else is a half-angel warrior to do? She heads out to kick some demon ass. Lucky for her, she’s also got her best friend Jonathan by her side. But there are still things she doesn’t know—not only about this hidden world she’s discovered, but about Jonathan himself. And those things could kill her if she isn’t careful.

Author Spotlight: Aurora Jean Alexander – By K. M. Jenkinks

I’m honored to announce I’m a guest today on Author K. M. Jenkin’s blog as her Featured Author. Thank you very much!


It’s Saturday, the first Saturday in the school year here in Sioux City, IA. My nieces went back to school just yesterday, which I think is stupid. Who starts school on a Friday and then bam it’s the weekend. Makes no sense. Well, anyway today I am giving over my blog to Paranormal Romance and Fantasy author Aurora Jean Alexander. She is going to talk about her current series in the works and her lovely kitties. Hope you have an awesome read…


I am Aurora Jean Alexander, AJ in short. I’m an author who recently published her 2nd book in ‘The Council Of Twelve’ series, Sundance.

I was quite young when I discovered I wanted to write. I doubt I can tell you one specific time or even time frame when I started writing. I felt that’s what I wanted to do. Since I lack talent in painting and drawing, I had to do something with my creativity and decided that’s the way to do it.
