June “Vox” Promo and Other Summer Suprises to Come!

Good morning, readers!

I have good news. I have “Aequitas: Book 2 of the Monstrum Chronicles” back in my grasp for the last round of editing. I hope to finish it this week (in reality, it will probably take me 2 weeks). Then I’ll begin the oh so painful process of formatting the book into a PDF file. And so I have concluded that Book 2’s release date will indeed be this fall. In fact, it will be a little sooner than I thought it would be.  The release date has now been scheduled for October 4th, 2012!

In the mean time, I’m running a couple of special promos on “Vox: Book 1 of the Monstrum Chronicles.” The first starts this week and ends on Sunday, June 24th. For a limited time, “Vox” will be available for only $0.99! This special pricing will begin this evening and run until Sunday morning at 7, eastern time. You can find the book by clicking on this link here.

Later this summer, I’ll also be holding a photo contest for the cover of Book 3. I had attempted to take a photograph myself and it turns out my photography skills really aren’t that fantastic. More details will emerge on this in July.

I will also be releasing several short stories this summer with events that pertain to The Monstrum Chronicles series. There are three in the line up and the first will probably be released in August, the next two in September. I’m very excited to get those out and introduce people to a new set of characters that will be integral to the events of “Aequitas.”

With that being said, I will now return to my editing of “Aequitas.” I’m currently on Chapter 8!

Have a wonderful week! And stay tuned for my Cooking Adventures blog tomorrow!



Spring Promo Stats!

Good morning, readers,

So the spring promo has officially come to a close. In the course of 48 hours, “Vox” was downloaded 279 times and climbed all the way up to #28 on the Kindle free Action & Adventure bestseller’s list! That’s quite an accomplishment, seeing as how it was in 700,000th place before the promo began.

Of course since the promo ended, the book has back slid a little bit into 55th place and is now in 1,600th place overall. Seeing as how there are over one million books in the Kindle store, I’m going to take that as a pretty good sign that things went well! A thanks to everyone who purchased a copy of the book this weekend, anyone who helped promote it, and anyone who encouraged me while I marketed it!

Spring Promo Update!

Good evening, readers!

In the span of just a day, the tide has shifted tremendously on my book. The book was in 700,000th place when I went to bed last night. That’s pretty bad.

It’s been about 24 hours since then. “Vox” is now in 53rd place on the Kindle Action & Adventure bestseller list and in 1,323 place overall in the Kindle Store! Wowza! I’m so floored! It just goes to show you, sometimes putting something out for free, even if it’s temporary really is a good choice after all!

Thank you to everyone who has downloaded a copy today! You’re awesome! 

Now, if only I could just get my allergies to give me a break…

One more day on the free promo! I’m excited to see what happens tomorrow!


Vox Spring Promo!

Good morning, readers!

Today and tomorrow, May 19th and 20th, my first novel “Vox: Book 1 of the Monstrum Chronicles” is available for free on Amazon Kindle! Now is your chance to join in on this exhilarating new vampire series. “Vox” is a supernatural horror novel, with a detective lit feel, and thriller influences. Readers of Dan Brown, Michael Crichton, and Agatha Christie should definitely check out this book! The readers will follow three different protagonists who slowly sink into a world where everyone they meet is a monster in disguise.

Here is the official book synopsis!

Torrent is a lilitu, a race of creatures on which vampire myths are based. Cocky and defiant, he’s on a hunt to alter the space-time continuum to change his fate, all the while, trying to outrun his sire who seeks to destroy him. 

Eileen is an Opera-soprano, returning home after seven months in a mental institution following the death of her husband. Secluded in a country estate, she soon realizes she isn t alone. 

Sean hears strange voices. In a desperate effort to save his life, he must discover what they are trying to tell him and why a shadowy corporation values his unusual gift. 

As all of their paths interweave with twists of betrayal, sacrifice, and murder, each character will have to come to terms with what they are and what it truly means to live.

Here are a few things people have said about “Vox”

“New teeth for the vampire genre”

“Fast-paced and full of suspense”

“True-to-death characters”

“Page turner from beginning to end”

“Pulse-pounding debut”

This is Halloween! Facebook Promo Details!

Good morning everyone,

I’m happy to announce that I have (finally) finished writing the content for Book 2. As of yesterday the book is 28 chapters long at 310 pages. The epilogue ends exactly the way that I’d imagined it would and I’m very satisfied with how it reads. Now onto the tricky part: editing and revising the sucker, ha ha. I’m going to take the next two months to really put a shine and polish on this before I begin the whole self-publishing process. That includes making sure that the overall story is consistent, most (if not all) questions are answered, and everything makes sense. This all came at a perfect time as well because it’s almost Halloween!

This year I plan to run a special promotional, starting October  28th and ending on Halloween at midnight. It’s quite simple:


1.) Go to Katherine Silva – Author on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/katherinesilva.author

2.) Become a Fan by clicking the “Like” button on the top of the page (You need a Facebook account to do this)

3.) If you are already a fan of the page, suggest the page to your friends!

4.) The 125, 150th, 175th and (dare I hope) 200th fan will receive free copies of “Vox: Book 1 of the Monstrum Chronicles”. The person that suggested you to the page (if applicable) will receive a free book (if they don’t have one already) and have their name used in “Memento Mori: Book 3 of the Monstrum Chronicles.”

5.) This is a weekend promotional starting at midnight on Friday October 28th. It will end at midnight on Monday October 31st.

6.) At the end of the promotional, I will message you asking for the name of the person who suggested the page to you as well as to get your address to ship a book to you.

7.) All I ask is for you to be fair, ie: don’t unlike and re-like the page, etc.

8.) Good luck!

Be sure to tune in to the fan page and the blog later this week for more news and for more Halloween-y things!

Until then, good morning and happy writing!
