Kelli’s Quill Newsletter - Big End-of-Year Issue

Kelli’s Quill
Big End-of-Year Issue
December 2013

Hi everyone!
Wow, another year is winding down. It’s hard to believe that we’re on the cusp of 2014.

This month in the Quill, we’ll recap 2013 in case you missed anything.

Let’s start with romance, then head into horror...

In May, The Viking's Witch won a Gold IPPY Award for best romance ebook! Kelli went to NYC to receive her gold metal and pose for photos. This year, there were 5,203 total entries and 372 medals were awarded to talented authors in all genres. Kelli also posted a two part blog about The Viking’s Witch (and a few photos) on her blog.

Raven at Reviewing Vixens gave The Viking’s Witch 4 out of 5 kisses. Here’s what they had to say:

“A great read that will have you guessing right to the end of the book. I was literally tied into knots wondering what would happen next, if they would actually make it as a couple or if all they'd done would be for nothing. Two very interesting characters, very opposite and yet the perfect match for one another. Read this book.”

Visit the book's page on Kelli's site (www.KelliWilkins.com) to read the full summary, an excerpt, and more reviews!

 Kelli is a Mistress of the Macabre! 

Kelli’s horror story "Sometimes Monsters Are Real" was published in the Dark Moon Books anthology, Mistresses of the Macabre. More than 500 people submitted horror stories - but only 18 were chosen - and Kelli is thrilled to be part of this collection of great stories written by women.

To quote the editor of the anthology, “Kelli A. Wilkins is the author of “Sometimes Monsters are Real,” a story about a deal with the devil that didn’t turn out as expected. Not to mention, it is the only story to make the editor cry.”

Kelli is Part of the Big Bad Anthology Of Evil!
Kelli’s sci-fi story "The Con" was published in the anthology, The Big Bad Anthology of Evil. In this collection of speculative stories, the bad guys rule!  The “heroes” are anything but good – at least not in the traditional sense. This book is available in paperback and eformats.


That’s all for this issue! I hope you enjoyed this recap. Next month, we start our “revamp” - look for a Q & A with Kelli, writing tips, and more.

Happy Reading & Best Wishes for a Great 2014!
