The writing process is different for every author. So we asked Maxym M. Martineau to describe the writing process for her debut novel, Kingdom of Exile. Take it away, Maxym!
I’m always so in awe of the authors who can plot. I’m talking about the ones who create storyboards, creatively move sticky notes around that are color-coded and beautiful, write scene-by-scene outlines before they even begin drafting… That level of plotting is so incredible to me, and totally not the way my writing process works. It just goes to show that there are different approaches to writing a story, and mine is just one of many. So if you’re curious how Kingdom of Exiles came to life, then keep reading (and expect no sticky notes, save the ones I slapped on my desk with upcoming due dates).
With the upcoming release of her newest happy-ever-after, Cowboy In Wolf's Clothing, we asked Kait Ballenger to share her favorite HEA!

In case we haven’t proved it yet, we are ridiculously excited about Maxym M. Martineau’s Kingdom of Exiles. There are two main factions in the book: beast charmers and Cruor assassins. As their name probably indicates, Charmers are the race of beings with the ability to tame magical beasts and call on them whenever they please. Members of Cruor, on the other hand, are undead humans, raised again to live forever in the shadows and work as assassins. While everyone has their own unique, individual traits, there are a few things that make them assassins or Charmers.
So, which faction do you belong to? While we impatiently wait for Kingdom of Exiles, let’s find out!
ABOUT KINGDOM OF EXILES
Assassin’s Creed meets Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in this gripping, epic fantasy romance trilogy.
My heart wasn’t part of the deal when I bargained for my life,
But assassins so rarely keep their word.
Exiled Charmer Leena Edenfrell is running out of time. Empty pockets forced her to sell her beloved magical beasts—an offense punishable by death—and now there’s a price on her head. With the realm’s most talented murderer-for-hire nipping at her heels, Leena makes Noc an offer he can’t refuse: powerful mythical creatures in exchange for her life.
Plagued by a curse that kills everyone he loves, Noc agrees to Leena’s terms in hopes of finding a cure. Never mind that the dark magic binding the assassin’s oath will eventually force him to choose between Leena’s continued survival…and his own.
We are OBSESSED with the new cover of Joanne Kennedy’s One Fine Cowboy (out in August). Okay, we’re really obsessed with the beautiful horse and gorgeous man featured on the cover. We asked Jeff, Buster the horse’s owner if he’d tell us more about him! Jeff is the owner of Casita de Chuparosa in New Mexico.
Y’all, it happened again. Stefani swung by my desk to ask if I could share some more secrets about an upcoming book. But not just any book! She wanted the dirt on Whiteout by Adriana Anders—the novel that’s going to redefine a subgenre!
Don’t believe me? Well, prepare your mind, friends, because it’s about to be blown.
