Exciting News...And A Whole Lot More!

Happy Monday!

Well, as my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, there's some exciting stuff I'm about to share with you. But first -- have you signed up for March Mania yet? There are LOTS of prizes and it's not too late! Just click right HERE and get entered to win big!

Next up, look at this cover to the left. I personally think this might be the cutest, funniest UFO cover yet. But it won't become real if the Kickstarter isn't funded. :-(

There are lots of great backer rewards, and there are still some tuckerizations left, including a couple of mine.

(Psst... Due to some things you don't know about yet, but will find out soon enough, whoever gets the tuckerizations for UFO6 is going to end up tuckerized in short stories in both the Alien Series and a different series...and that means main series bleed-over. Not saying which additional one yet, but it will be cool.)

So click HERE and head on over to check out the Kickstarter so we can get some funny on!

Now...guess what was just named an RT Book Reviews Top Pick? That's right, Alien Education! In fact, check out some of the lovely things they said in their May 2017 issue:

"Koch’s genius for taking the completely outlandish and making it seem perfectly plausible insures her loyal readers are in for yet another amazing roller-coaster ride. Great stuff!"

Guess what helps your girl out? That's right, pre-orders! They're about the most important thing going for authors these days (followed closely by Amazon reviews). So please do your girl a solid and pre-order Alien Education (and Aliens Abroad, while you're at it) and help ensure that we keep on keeping Kitty going and going and going...!

And speaking of going... It's time for that BIG News I mentioned earlier! Wait for it...wait for iiiitttt...


I know, it's too happy to be true, but true it IS! DAW Books has just bought Books 18, 19, and 20 in the Alien/Katherine "Kitty" Katt series!

Due to my wanting to change a few things around to make it more challenging for Kitty & Company and therefore more fun for you and me, the release order will now be:

Book 15 - Alien Education
Book 16 - Aliens Abroad
Book 17 - Aliens Like Us
Book 18 - Alien Galaxy
Book 19 - Alien Rescue
Book 20 - Alien Reckoning

(If we have any Goodreads Librarians noting this, if you could please share this change with the Powers That Be over there, it would be a lovely bit of help!)

So, get ready to keep rockin' with Kitty all over the galaxy, the multiverse, and the universe, because we're goin' to twenty!

The Unbound Worlds Cage Match 2017 begins TODAY (March 6th)! And Kitty's in the battle and needs all your votes to be able to win! Please vote early, and check out all the other matches going on, too!

Last time I didn't make it out of the second round, but last time Kitty wasn't in the battle. Since she is, show her you believe that she's the best and Vote for Kitty!

Speaking of Kitty, remember to do your girl a solid and pre-order Alien Education and Aliens Abroad. You'll be happy you did and I'll love you even more than I already do.

Next up, we have a new Kickstarter starting on Tuesday, March 7th! (Say that three times fast.) Unidentified Funny Objects 6 is ready to start funding. There are lots of prizes, and I have four (that's right 4) tuckerizations available. So, if you've ever wanted to be in the Alien Series, now's your time, because my story for this antho is Tim's origin story, "Alien in the Classroom".

The Kickstarter is going live on the 7th, so watch my Facebook and Twitter feeds for the links to the campaign, or look on Kickstarter for Unidentified Funny Objects 6.

After that, listen to Moi run the Yap over at the Spaced Out With Lisa Caskey Podcast! Lisa's an awesome author, and she and I yapped for quite a while. So, there's a Part 1 and Part 2 for you to check out!

And, as a little teaser, I'll have some new (and good) Alexander Outland news coming soon!

Last but not least, if you're heading to the movies, check out my review of "Table 19" over at Pop Culture Geeks.

That's it for today, but, as always, more's on the way. So let's be March Mania, Cage Match fighting, Festival attending, with a side of Kickstartering readers out there! Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love, Gini
