J to tha M: Fangirling on Kate SeRine

Sharing a Big Announcement from a Fave Author

kate serineM: Kate SeRine, one of our new favorite authors, had a super fun announcement this week

and we can feel pretty smug because we kind of chatted/stumbled into/guessed earlier

even though I’m just fangirl excited more than smug

J:  GIDEON!

sorry.

I was overwhelmed

M:  haha – yes!

J:  I’m jumping up and down

and I’m so so happy that we can tell people

M:  Kate SeRine is continuing her Transplanted Tales series

and Gideon is next!

J:  But seriously

for everyone to understand our excitement about Gideon,

they need to read the first three – Red, The Better To See You, and Along Came A Spider

We’ll be talking more about the new one–Spider–next week. Release date Aug 1!

M:  They need to read the first three, period

J:  Because, well, this guy–Gideon–is super hot.

She’s made him so with the least amount of words possible

which is such talent

M:  She’s kind of super talented that way

haha – there we go

on the same page again

J:  Let’s just recap the hotness, shall we?

I mean, we met Nate right away

hot

but she also introduced Seth with such few words

but we still COULD NOT WAIT to meet him in the next one

and then there were the little mentions of Nicky Blue

where he sounded so, so cute, but really steaming hot at the

same time

like a hotter Sinatra

way hotter

and I, for one, couldn’t wait to read his story, just from the few words here and there about him

M:  more like Brando

J:  How does she DO that?

oh, yes. Brando. I’m on it.

M:  I know. Each hero she writes is all swoonified

J:  but I’ve never been so excited about one

even as excited as I was about those heroes

she’s just made Gideon this AMAZING character with so few mentions.

and I already want one.

WANT.

M:  I’m like – Nate’s my favorite kind of hero. Oooh, Seth is. No wait, Nicky. Yes. Nicky. But

wait, Gideon.

She manages to hit all the buttons

all of them

and not just the hero buttons

J:  And I can’t wait to see his actual spot in the Fairy Tale lore

oh, talk buttons

then we’ll discuss his possible character

M:  She hits the heroine buttons, too. And story. And plot. And

characterization. And suspense. Fun. Mystery, worldbuilding. Cleverness.

I have so much love for her writing

just perfect escapism

J:  exactly

so

my guess on Gideon is that he’s more than he’s appeared to be so far

It would be hard to write a whole book about a peripheral character

so I’m wondering if she’s going to bust out some secret fairy tale

M:  or literary character

J:  the frog prince?

M:  or maybe the heroine is a Tale?

whatever it is, I’m looking forward to the unexpected and clever

J:  I’m sure it will be so amazing

who could the heroine be?

who’ve we met so far?

maybe Cindy gets her real Prince Charming?

M:  ooh, I did think Cindy needed a good story and turnaround

or the DA – Mary Contrary

the snarky one

there’s a story there, I think

maybe we can convince Kate to tell or give a hint

J:  I’m for that. gentle persuasion. blackmail. whatever it takes

M:  exactly. we must know so we can discuss and contemplate

and then before we get Gideon’s story, we get more of Nate and Red

Grimm Consequences – a short about the trials and tribulations that were hinted at in the last two books

like a extra little bonus to tide us over while we wait. I think that one will be released February 2014.

J:  siiiiigh

Nate

Look, I really loved Nicky and Seth

But there’s still something about Nate

and the depth of his devotion

he loved the longest

it wasn’t a “hey, she’s cute”

he loved her for years and bided his time

and that…

well, aside from the slight stalker angle

is just so effing sweet

when he told his story, I was just tied up inside

all breathless and near tears.

just unf

M:  Nate was my favorite

But Seth was sooo sexy

and I loved Nicky Blue

J:  oh yes

M:  sigh. Nicky…

J:  they’re all amazing for various reasons

M:  I have such serious sexy fun love for this series

I rec to everyone, and I haven’t heard anyone who has been disappointed

J:  I need everyone to read it

M:  Kate’s giving away a copy of one of the first three Transplanted tales novels–winner’s choice.

J:  wonder if we’re allowed to win. I wouldn’t mind something with her signature on it

M:  yes, a signed paper copy of RED and swag!

We all must enter.

J:  I WANT SWAG

Is it a rafflecopter?

M:  plus, on top of all the talented awesomeness, Kate’s a super nice person.

yes, a rafflecopter entry through the end of the week

enter, enter!

J:  you got it. I’m going to enter rtfn

    Loved Red in this series and look forward to Along Came a Spider. 🙂

  2. LMAO – I just adore you gals! You’re too cute. 🙂 Thanks for all the fangirl love for my Tales!!

    And I’ll give you a little hint… You haven’t met Gideon’s love interest yet. She’s brand new. Bonus hint: She’s from fairytales/folklore – but, of course, the storytellers got her story all wrong. 😉

    • Gah! A new character we get to try to guess. Too much fun! And of course, if she’s springing from your Tales, her story is all cleverly twisted around. So looking forward to Gideon’s story and more from Nate and Tess in February! Yay – and thank you! ❤
