After reading this, I honestly should love to see a short story collection that just covers the absolute CHAOS that is Curia Cloisters—especially now that more and more characters just keep coming to the meetings and making everything even more ridiculous.

Between Killian being a troll, Leila being a money grubber, Grayson with his tech problem and Chloe and Noctus with their disdain for politics and Elite Bellus just existing and getting gray hair from all the chaos…it’s so chaotic and I live for it. 😆🤩

That would be so fun! Kind of like a Magifird version of Lost Files of the MBRC, with glimpses of the future and nods to the running jokes in all the Magiford books.

twins from any couple of different races would be adorable.

This was ridiculously awesome!!
Side note: who wants to bet that Pip and Greyson have twins, one werewolf and one hunter?! Anyone, anyone?

The short story was very enjoyable, the interplay between characters is hilarious.

Please let the last series help with Leila’s financial troubles! I feel like she’s got a great goldmine if she does weekly photobooths with the glooms or something. She can’t be poor forever right!!?!

I love how the audience for the meetings are getting bigger after each book which means that they are also forming their own friendships to knit everyone together.

Loved the nod to the previous short story – A Clocktower Meeting. This one was very amusing – Elite Bellus seems to have given up in getting Noctus back in the Curia Cloisters for the time being, but as the Paragon stated, he’s old and nice, so he’ll find a way!

Absolutely hilarious! I’ve been waiting for a new short story, and this one did not disappoint! 🙂

So much fun!!!!! If Pip can smuggle things in for Greyson, I wonder how long it will take for Ker to smuggle food in for Aristide. Probably depends on how nicely he asks!

I also wonder what the procedure is for adding a new member (or two) to the regional committee. The elves need a representative, not an ambassador, and eventually the shadows might prove to be a big enough group that they can’t be covered under wizards… although if they’re all associated with the elves, that might not be necessary.

You write good stories, Kitty, so of course your champion group keeps expanding! Maybe we’ll get you to the #1 spot someday!

I would read a full length novel of this!!!

Ok, yeah, TOTALLY loved the story! So good! So happy to see them trying to work together, and expressing their… unique personalities!

Question: which one of them will make a motion that all financial decisions will be made by Queen Leila, with committee members free to have a meeting if they want to potentially change a decision? Leila will never overspend, and everyone else will then not have to sit through useless meetings, only important ones that might improve the lives of supernaturals? Given how much they all hate busy work, I think they’d all be down with it.

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting this story the day after the book was released. I was more thinking another week at least. It was completely brilliant! I absolutely love Regional Committee meeting stories or email chains. Thank you for an awesome book and short story!!!

Short Story: The Elven Ambassador

It’s party time, Champions! I’ve been saving this donut image just for this post because I have a special treat for you!

The King’s Queen is now available which means the whole trilogy for The Gate of Myth and Power series is released! I know you really want to read the short story (the link is down below) but I first want to thank you Champions–for the reviews, yes, but also for your support and for whole heartedly embracing this trilogy. Just being blunt, it’s a weird premise. (I mean, really: elf king forcefully adopts a cat he doesn’t know is actually a human??) I actually assumed this would be my least popular Magiford trilogy, but instead you Champions took the questionable premise in stride, and last night The King’s Queen hit # 5…in the entire amazon store! That’s the highest rank any of my books have ever had!! I am still wandering around my house in shock!

So thank you for rallying around this odd little trilogy, thank you for all of your support through probably the worst year in my entire life, and thank you for being a part of our uplifting, bookish community.

Kings Captive read it now

I’d keep going, except, THE SHORT STORY! To celebrate this amazing launch–and, yes, as my thank you for The King’s Queen getting over 100 reviews across the various Amazon stores and Goodreads–I’m releasing the free short story: The Elven Ambassador. (Click here for the short story!) This short story is best read after King’s Queen as it does have some mild spoilers, but–as you can probably guess from the title–it also has a lot of cameos! I hope it makes you laugh!

Gate of Myth and Power Short Story - Elven Ambassador

In conclusion….Champions, thank you so much for your kindness and patience with all of through all of this. This year didn’t start the way I wanted it to, but I’m so thankful for your support and patience since there was a bigger gap between King’s Shadow and King’s Queen than I normally have for the Magiford books.

Also, many thanks to everyone who sent me ideas for salty treats since my tooth surgery means I can’t eat chips right now. It’s given me plenty of ideas for me and future Magiford books! And it warms the cockles of my heart that so many of you have been craving donuts after reading Chloe’s books. I was actually intending to go out and get donuts and maybe a milk steamer this morning to celebrate Chloe’s trilogy, but we’re getting slammed by a snow storm right now, so I’ll just drink some tea and close my eyes and pretend  my bagel is a donut.

Thanks again, Champions! Happy reading!
