I hope you all had a very happy Thanksgiving. And if you’re not in the US, I hope you had a lovely 4th Thursday in November. I haven’t been up to much. My fucking stove broke like two weeks ago and even though I ordered one (with an air fryer!!) it won’t be delivered until December 18th. So that’s fun. lol We got Black Eyed Pea takeout for Thanksgiving! Whatever. Nothing can stress me out this year. I’m over all of it. I just go with the flow now.
I bought a new microwave too. I tend to use things even if they kinda break because where I live, change is a hassle. This microwave has had a broken handle for like two and a half years. It was time. But getting new appliances when you’re on liquid propane gas isn’t as straight forward as it is when you just have regular natural gas. Home Depot and Lowe’s won’t install it. At least here in CO, you have to call someone special because they have to put in different valves or some shit. And I live in the middle of nowhere, so not a lot of options when it comes to installation people. Everything is harder out here. Even though Black Forest, Colorado is only like 25 minutes down the highway, they won’t come here. Same for the Castle Rock people who are 25 minutes up the highway. So I usually have to call someone who is in one of the small-small towns in the area – those guys don’t mind driving. But they are very busy all the time. So unless it’s an emergency, you have to wait and wait and wait for them to fit you in. Anyway. That’s my kitchen appliance update. haha.
I stopped writing the book I’m on to do some marketing. I feel like it’s impossible to do both. Because when I’m writing, I write 6000 words a day. The reward center in my brain likes to see word count go up and this is what keeps me motivated. The problem is, when I’m done–even though it’s only like noon–I don’t want to think about marketing and business stuff. lol So I’m usually doing nothing but writing or nothing but business and marketing stuff. And I HAVE to do marketing and business stuff right now because I have 125 orders to get in the mail (This Thursday! About 80% of the signed-book orders will be in the mail!) Plus I have to get my Christmas cards out. AND I wanted to do a 12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS this year.
It’s been a shitty year in a lot of ways. I really can’t complain because aside from the untimely demise of my stove, no major tragedies have befallen me. But it’s been stressful. So I figured if ever there was a year begging for a 12 Days of Giveaways, it’s 2020.
IF YOU SCROLL DOWN, YOU WILL FIND THE FIRST GIVEAWAY!
OK, that’s enough about my rural writer problems… lol.
I have a bunch of things to fill you in on today so I figured I’d write a blog post and do a newsletter instead of just posting it up in the fan group.
First of all the really big news – the last HAREM STATION book, UNCROSSED, now has a cover revel date and a release date.
THIS IS CRUX’S SECOND BOOK.
The first book was a free novella called STAR CROSSED.
The cover reveal will happen on December 10th and the release day will happen on January 26th. The audiobook will be released with the ebook and the narrators are Shane East and Christian Fox. I’m so fucking excited to listen to this one. I don’t have the files yet but hopefully I will get them soon and I’ll post some teasers for you guys.
This book took a while. The last Harem Station book released in October of 2019. So it’s been OVER A YEAR. Um.. Sorry about that. This is the seventh and last book in the series so I had a lot of story to wrap up. It’s on the longer side, so if you like long books, bonus for you. And this little side project was super fun and the KC Cross pen name is far from over. I will be releasing an erotic PARANORMAL ROMANCE later in the year. Maybe more than one. We’ll see how things shake out.
So here are all the important details for UNCROSSED.

BOTH are being hosted by XPRESSO TOURS.
Princess Corla was supposed to be my soulmate.
But we were star crossed.
Two ships passing in the dark. Meant to be together, but never able to be together.
At least that’s what I thought.
But it turns out—my life is a lie, evil forces are out to get us, Harem Station is spinning chaos, and the soulmate bond won’t protect us.
Sounds pretty bad, right?
But here’s the best part.
I can change it.
I can change all of it.
If I can just find a way to get myself uncrossed.
Uncrossed is the last book in the Harem Station Series and features a man chasing his star-crossed soulmate through time, a bazillion enemies at the gate, an entire station in chaos, and an explosive ending that proves, once and for all, that love WINS in the end.

My winner is Shedevilreads Bookstagram for her retweet on Twitter. She has been emailed. Thank you!
THE 12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAY ARE HERE!
I don’t really remember the first year I did the 12 Days of Giveaways. I know I skipped a year or two in there, but I think I started them in 2013 maybe? And I often host other authors for this. Most of the time I do. I’ve never done one by myself like this I don’t think. But this year I got started so late and I just wasn’t organized enough to get other authors involved. So all the giveaways are mine. And they are all in that pic up top! This year they are all a combination of signed books, and self-care, and gift cards, and fun goodies!
The first day of giveaways is for THE DIRTY ONES. And this book IS FREE ON AMAZON TODAY! I just put it in Kindle Unlimited too, so if you find this blog post late and miss the free days, you can always pick it up free in KU.
