Doylestown resident Kate S. Black’s first novel, “The Love Shot,” is now available on Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble’s Nook sites, and will soon debut on Smashwords. A Southern California gal by birth, Kate has been a Doylestown resident for 20 years, and though her first novel is set in fictional Colway, New York, she closely patterns the town after Doylestown.
“I love all the diverse architecture of Doylestown, and it still has a small-town charm about it, so I used a lot of that when I created Colway, which is supposedly near Oswego, New York.”
Kate’s novel is designated a ‘sweet’ romance versus a ‘spicy’ romance, and she is already at work on the second novel in the series.
“I’m aiming for a trilogy; one of the secondary characters in ‘The Love Shot’ will be the main character in the second novel, and something that is mentioned in the first novel is the plot for the third.”
The book, which Kate began writing in September, took seven months to complete, and a mere 24 hours to be accepted and available on Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble’s Nook.
“The publishing process on these sites is very easy,” she explained. “These two sites do not edit or have restrictive formatting, whereas Smashwords, which is a clearinghouse site for several different publishers, like Apple and Sony, has a strict layout format and style, so the process is a bit more complex.”
Her book will be available on Smashwords in late April.
