Well, it had to happen. A House at War was going so well. Then, my editor went out, so we’ve had to delay a month. I decided, as I had to put the pre-order for that back, that I’d drop the pre-order price to $0.99. The new launch date is Halloween 🙂
While I’m at it though, I am about to sort out a new set of horror stories, just in time for Halloween/Samhain, there’s a free horror story for you here. 🙂 It’s my ‘thinking man’s zombie story – Footnotes to a Lesson If you’ve already signed up for the newsletter, and you can’t get at the download, let me know. Just comment with your subscribed email, I’ll fire you a copy over as soon as I’ve confirmed, per GDPR, you’re already willing to have emails from me. 😉

Murder comes in a variety of types, but some of the most heinous are those that are prepared for. Whether one off or part of a mass killing or serial killing, mass shootings and murders with Kill Kits are planned, plotted and designed. In this book, we examine some famous and not so famous kill kit killers, looking at ten of these people, and the aftermath of their actions.

But, by the time they arrive, Arrath is embroiled in a civil war for the Throne of Arrath. And that civil war could destroy the whole continent – if Arrath falls, Vessima’s support will falter, and the Void Walls may fail, overtaking Vessima, Arrath, Delaevir and Cytathi.Can Shula and Tarval do anything, or is the House of Arrath already lost?

Hera thinks that her life can’t get any worse. Her last project has been put on indefinite hold after her lead actor was rightly crucified in the press, then pandemic lockdowns and… the list just goes on.It’s been a long year, and about to get longer because, every five years, Hera goes home to be judg… visit her family and catch up.
Judging though, is always on her mind. Whether her family means to or not, the “playful competition” isn’t playful, or much of a game. She just can’t compete with her sisters, and their apparently perfect lives.
Both her sisters married their childhood sweethearts, while she ends up with all the guys that just aren’t Mr Right.
And it always comes back to that. He’s “Right Now”, not “Right”, and each family gathering always ends in everyone trying to set her up with their single friends. And then, there’s “The arrangement”…So, after she gets stranded returning home to a family reunion, and that stranding is a bubble of cast and crew from her last project, is it possible that an arrangement of convenience that was started two years before could become something more?
A steamy romantic comedy, from the “Her Entourage” universe.
And miles to go, before I sleep – November 12th 2021
Trigger warnings on the contents of this book as it’s an honest and raw view of mental health.
A collection of essays on the lockdown, psychosis, mental health and wellness, creativity, and the reasons suicide can’t be the answer. A poignant, raw and heartfelt look at the modern state of mental health stigma, and support, the essays touch on everything from living with mental health, the changes in diagnosis criteria, psychosis and dealing with everything surrounding it.
Kai breaks down the collection into four sections, based around the final verse of “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost.
These essays and short stories by D Kai Wilson-Viola touch on some of what it is to live with mental health issues in a world that seems to want to help and punish in equal measure. The essays are broken loosely into four parts.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep – part 1 The nature of living with anxiety in a world that’s speeding up, and how embracing it isn’t always as easy as it seems. But I have promises to keep – Part 2 Societal discussions and expectations around mental health and ‘failure’ And miles to go before I sleep – Part 3 Treatments, insomnia and more And miles to go before I sleep – Part 4 Advocacy, art, honesty, passive suicide and more.
