It’s festival time! 🎨🍷

It’s festival time, Reader!

This weekend SEP 16 & 17 me and my husband will be at the 41st Annual Santa Clara Art and Wine Festival in my hometown. Once again, they’ve graciously invited me to be showcased in their juried selection of artisans and craft persons.

You’ll find us in the same location as previous years under the shady trees in our story forge in Booth 140.

We’ll have our normal selection of Inspurrational kitty prints, Kawaiinimal Gemstone Dragon prints, and digital and watercolor prints. Scott Aleric will have 2 new coloring books for Fantasy RPG enthusiasts to add to the 4 already available. And I’ll be unveiling the paperback editions of my new Boys Love release Predestined!

As with previous years, remember to ask for your free coloring book page when you stop by (supplies are limited, please claim yours early!). And if you mention this email, we’ll even have an extra little 🎁 for you 😸

It will be a mild 75-78 degrees in Santa Clara’s Central Park this year, but it's still outside, so remember to wear your sunscreen!

We hope you’ll stop by this weekend to say hi. But wherever your weekend leads you, just remember to get out there & spread your unique brand of awesomeness with the world!

Your cohort in storytelling,

Kat Vancil

KAT VANCIL THE STORYTELLER'S SAGA QUEST 50 Well hello there, Reader! Do you ever get to the end of the week and you’re just tired? So tired that all your bright and shiny plans for Sunday just go right out the window? So tired that you can’t even bring yourself to change out of your PJs despite the fact it’s long past noon? I was that kind of tired this past Sunday, Reader. It probably didn’t help that I was woken up way too early by our neighbor’s “valiant” attempt to train their dog...

‘Romance is about two people seeing the world their own way, with their own shards of glass wedged deep into their hearts, that by the last page end up completing one another.’ — Kat Vancil, “Looking to write that love story this Palentine’s Day?”, The St

KAT VANCIL THE STORYTELLER'S SAGA QUEST 49 Well hello there, Reader! Have you got a special someone on this 💝 filled day? Did they get you something sweet? In the days leading up to VDay, sales of chocolates and flowers have been massive. But what about… Books? Yep, you heard me correctly. Over 2.2 billion books are sold each year worldwide. And of those billions, 25% were Romance books. That number jumps to 40% if you’re just counting books within genre fiction. Crazy right? And that’s...

‘That whole New Year. New You. And it MUST start exactly on JAN 1st or you’re a capital F Failure is complete bullshit.’ — Kat Vancil, “So…did your 2023 go exactly as planned?”, The Storytellers Saga

KAT VANCIL THE STORYTELLER'S SAGA QUEST 48 Well hello there, Reader, So…did your 2023 go exactly as planned? We’re 10 days into 2024 and has yours already gone off the rails? Yep, mine too. 😬 I completely feel you on that one. My 2023 ended with a rattling death cough of “Well, I guess I’m not going to be accomplishing that this year.” And the first week of 2024 was entirely a wash, because I’ve been sick for going on 3 weeks now. But am I ready to throw in the towel for 2024 and take up...
