WIP it Real Good: Stranger Rituals by Kali Rose Schmidt + giveaway

I’m Kali Rose Schmidt and I am the author of Stranger Rituals, a dark adult fantasy set in a horrid world where blood spills in the streets and magic is punishable by torture. Did I sell you on it yet? ;)

As for my work in progress, I’m currently working on a few things (I’m one of those strange creatures that enjoys keeping busy…like…neurotically busy).

Firstly, I’ve gone through a few drafts of Stranger Rituals II (Shadow Palace), and I’m working on edits for that. It’s as dark and bloody as the first, which is great for those of us with strong stomachs. Half of it takes place in a different world from the Stranger Rituals settings and is in a kingdom loosely inspired by Scotland. As such, I’m doing a lot of research on Scotland which may or may not include booking a flight to visit. I hope to have this released in the fall.

In addition to that, I’ve got a new book coming out in the fall called An Unholy Magick, which is just as occult-ish as it sounds. That book is completely finished, but it’s part of a four-book series (The Vile Sacraments series…lovely, right?), so I’m working on book three now. This book has a lot of occult elements and a bit of Norse mythology blended in, so it requires a good amount of research.

And lastly, I’m working on a new book set in the world of Fae, full of elves, faeries, and demons, and that, too, needs a lot of research. As such, I’m currently browsing an encyclopedia of demonology, which is only a little bit frightening.

As always, I’ve got a notebook full of other ideas, just in case, but that’s what I’ve got going on right now.

Thank you so much for letting me guest post here, and if you can stomach a lot of blood and dark magic, I hope you’ll check out Stranger Rituals, which is available wherever books are sold.
