Honorary Blogger Chris T. Kat: After the Hiatus + Excerpt!


After the Hiatus

by Chris T. Kat

Thanks so much to the Blogger Girls for having me on your blog. Dreamspinner Press published my new release, Alpha Unit One, New York, today. Alpha Unit One, New York is a shape-shifter story with a unique twist.

Alpha Unit One, New York is the first book I’ve written after a hiatus of over a year. Two years ago my last book came out, and I retired from writing. Well, that’s what I thought, anyway. I’d lost the fun I’d always found in writing, and health issues didn’t help either. So writing became a chore when before it had always been sort of my relaxation zone. I believed I’d burned out, but as much as it pained me in the beginning, I soon realized I’d find another hobby.

So I went back to doing sports, and eventually my health troubles lessened, and all of a sudden there was this desire to write again. At first I shoved it aside because I was actually afraid if I started writing again I’d overdo, and my body would not tolerate me working myself into the ground again.

But what to do when you have a complete story in your mind with one of the cutest characters you’ve ever invented? Right, I started writing again. At first, I was very careful about how much time I spent at the computer. But I soon realized I could write without overtaxing myself (although I only write sometimes and very little) and the joy in writing came back. I hope that shines through in Alpha Unit One, New York because I totally adore the baby animals in this story. And yep, the twist in this story is having baby creatures as the permanent form of human shifters.

In this story, I could indulge in writing my characters with their playful behavior. I could also describe their features in detail, like the baby fur, large eyes, etc. All in all, I smiled a lot while writing this book, and hope it’ll elicit a smile or two from you, the readers.

Blurb: The cat’s out of the bag….

In a world that accepts shifters as normal and thinks nothing of human/shifter couples, baby shifters and small shifters are treated as subpar. They are not allowed into the more dangerous professions, and their mates have legal control over what they can and cannot do.

Nicholas Reed is about to challenge the established rules. At twenty-eight, Nick has just been accepted into New York’s Alpha Unit One—an elite law enforcement team, composed equally of humans and shifters, that specializes in drug crimes. It is Nick’s dream job. But if they find out what he’s hiding, his career could be destroyed.

Enter a huge complication in the form of Sam Black, an older lion shifter who is the leader of the unit… and Nick’s mate. Nick wants Sam, and he wants to keep his job, but he can’t have them both. He also can’t choose between them. Continue reading
