Author has written 15 stories for Bleach.
Welcome to my page!
I am a writer in real life. In fact, writing Bleach fan fiction right here gave me enough practice, and you all gave me enough encouragement and feedback, to strike out on my own. Thus, I have several books out, and more are in the works. Since some of my "original character" books are inspired by my fan fiction, I post the first few chapters here, for my original fans!
This is extra work: I take a book that's no longer Bleach, and characters that I have changed to make them my own, and I have to "bleach" it all over again! Yet I don't mind spending the time on this. Seeing Ichigo and Grimmjow, Renji and Byakuya, or Shuuhei and Kensei get in trouble all over again puts a smile on my face. I hope it puts a smile on yours, too.
"Lummox" - Robbie transfered to a new school after causing an unexcusable loss on a football field. He's grown and his coordination is shot. He meets Brent (Yumichika), whose uncle Attila (Byakuya) owns a stable with his partner Kai (Renji). Robbie and Brent make friends over bombed math tests and disasters that happen to Attila and his horse Sen. First love, first kiss, mutual support, coming of age.
1. "Broken Gait" came out last week. It's a "Wild Horses" sequel, and I just LOOOVE this book! If you love horses, know anyone who struggles with Autistic Spectrum Disorder, AND are a ByaRen fan, this book's for you. Background: Byakuya is so formal and quiet because he can't stand crowds. His ASD was never diagnosed... so he struggled alone. Now he has Renji to help him.
Upcoming releases: Swordfall and Landfall, books 2 and 3 of the Fall Trilogy
I'm working on the second round of edits from Dreamspinner Press on Swordfall right now, and the book should come out around Christmas. Landfall is now officially accepted for publication - I signed the contract today!!! I'm so excited (and relieved!).
In the works
Remember "SwimBikeRun"? I think I can improve it a lot... that would be next year's project. Also, I have an idea for Yumichika, Byakuya's nephew (!!! I know... right?) who struggles through high school and rides competitively, and he just might discover there's this boy in school he really likes. Just a thought... I haven't started yet.
Already published stuff - and how to get it:
My books are published under the name "Kate Pavelle" and are available on Amazon, Kobo, Barns&Noble, and AllRomanceEbooks. You can get most of them at the Dreamspinner Press website. Just search under Author, and they will pop up.
If you don't want to buy a book, ask your library to get one. Seriously, they will! Either through an interlibrary loan, or you might entice them to actually buy a copy.
So - here is what's out there already:
"Wild Horses" (former ByaRen) Kai stole a phone right form Attila's pocket - but Attila texted him, appealing to his better qualities. The rest is history.
"Broken Gait" (sequel to WH, Attila has what used to be known as Asperger's and really struggles with his social anxiety. Kai is there to help.)
"Zipper Fall" (former GrimmIchi "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", where Ichi is a cat burglar and burgles Grimmjow - oops!) Jack Azzuri and Wyatt Gaudens, new characters.
"Breakfall" (former GrimmIchi, based on what really happened to me years ago. The guys are martial arts instructors, but Sean gets attacked in his sleep and then stalked by a serial offender. Asbjorn, a tough classmate skilled in karate, is there to help - except he's not allowed to help, which drives him crazy. This is Sean's fight, all the way.)
"Swordfall" (sequel to Breakfall, coming out January 15, 2015.) Bad guy broke out of jail, and Asbjorn won't let Sean go through the whole stalking/attempted murder thing again. He grabs a sword and goes hunting, resolved to correct the situation. Yet his old, ex-navy PTSD rears it's ugly head and his grip on reality sort of... slips.)
"Landfall" (sequel to Swordfall and the last book of the trilogy. The guys have been together for 2 years and they need a vacation. Who knew they end up marooned on a tropical island over spring break, relying on their wits to survive? Smugglers, storms, a washed-up dead body. What a vacation! Coming out Spring 2015).
"Cancelled Czech Files - On the Run" - an adventure-memoir. True story. I was 13 and our family left on a secret vacation that didn't end. We were, actually, escaping from behind the Iron Curtain. Homeless refugees in a foreign country, later adapting to our life in the US. Coming out January 31st 2015!
"Kickass Anthology" - an illustrated collection of stories featuring a smaller, weaker LGBT character who uses wit, grit, and guile to subdue an overwhelming opponent or impossible odds. This book is a volunteer effort by all writers, and all proceeds benefit gay romance writer Eric Arvin, who finds himself (hopefully temporarily) paralyzed after a brain surgery. Even though he has a long road ahead of him as he trains his body to obey his commands again, Eric didn't lose his sharp wit and scathing humor. Buying this anthology will help him buy high-tech devices to speed up his recovery. Coming out December 11th, 2014!
"Strawberries in the Snow" - a Christmas love story. Realizing he's gay cost him his family - but all is well as long as his daughter is rooting for him, and encouraging him to start dating again. Sweet.
Have a great fall, everyone. Enjoy the early winter! (Positive attitude, and all that...)
