What a rollercoaster of emotions! I just finished reading the two first books of the Age of Retha. I needed a moment to sort out the mix of emotions that followed with the realisation of a delayed but soon upcoming 3. book yet it still being an ongoing series for some time 😉. I knew I’d like the Age of Retha but kept putting it off while trying to catch up with K.M Shea’s work. Which I love too. Naturally. So, onwards to Royal Magic while eagerly waiting for September. Thank you for writing such wonderful books!

So, I am not a gamer, at all. But I love The Second Age of Retha! I love Kit’s sarcastic humor, and her ability to swar proficiently that makes me laugh instead of cringe. I introduced the series to so friends of mine that are gamers and they loved it, in fact I got in trouble for getting them into a series that was not completed and that they would have to wait for the rest. We are eagerly awaiting September and a release date. I never thought I would be so interested in the adventures of a character named Kitten Lovemuch but I can’t even recall how many times I have re-read the first two and I am excited that there are three more to come.

I heartily second Abby! Not a gamer, and eagerly awaiting more books, because these combine the best aspects of fantasy, realistic characters, and watching someone else play a video game 😉 (a thing I sometimes enjoy, but it’s a terrible thing when I try to “drive”).

Awww, thanks for the recommendation, Abbey!
🙂 On the plus side I can say “the Revived” introduces some super fun characters! (Also Solus Miles and Pax are in it way more, so double the fun, buwahaha!)

I love the Age of Retha series so far, the problem is I want to binge read everything to the final end. But instead I must be patient and wait for the Final Battle!

Well the Revived will be nice and long, so hopefully that will make up for the delayed release! 😉

LitRPG Week

It’s LitRPG week here in the Summer Reading event, so to celebrate I’ve put the first book in my Second Age of Retha series, The Luckless, up for free from today through the 18th! If you haven’t heard about The Luckless before, it’s likely because it’s under my not-so-secret pen name, A. M. Sohma.

The Luckless Free Book

Lately I’ve had a few people ask why I have the two names. The difference is this….A. M. Sohma books have a bit less romance. More correctly, I should say A. M. Sohma books have slow burn romance, meaning it takes more than a few books to develop. In just about every book/series I’ve written under K. M. Shea, the romance is solved in a single book–maybe two, tops. The only exception to this rule is my King Arthur and Her Knights series. (Which that still might not count because the first six books are all novellas.)

So A. M. Sohma books still have the same humor, same characters, same morals, same standards…it’s just that the romance is a little slower to develop.

Some of you are still a little leery of A. M. Sohma books, considering the only series–The Second Age of Retha–I have out is something called “LitRPG,” which is basically a fancy genre name that mean the story takes place inside a video game. But although the setting is a video game, you do not have to be a gamer to understand (and laugh at) the story! Check out the images to see what some fellow Champions had to say about the series.

Personally, the way I (Kitty) would describe Second Age of Retha to my faithful Champions, is to say that I wrote it with the desire of doing to Epic Fantasy what I did with the MBRC series and Paranormal romance/urban fantasy: lovingly make fun of it. Though admittedly, the Second Age of Retha has a more complex and danger-filled plot. But it’s basically what would happen if you dumped a modern 20-something-year-old girl who is a big fantasy fan into an Epic Fantasy storyline. (A lot of sarcasm ensues.)

So why am I pushing this series right now? Because, as I mentioned at the top, The Luckless is free today through the 18th! That means you can try this series for free! (Or tell your friends/kiddos/significant other about the book and they can try it for free!)

If you still decide to pass, no hard feelings. 😉 I do understand that this series won’t be for everyone.

So I do hope you’ll give The Luckless a try, and if you do I really hope Kit and her crew make you laugh. Until the next post, thanks for reading!
