Ending January in style!

One month into 2014, I've already reached a huge goal.
Two books, A Taste of Italy and Cajun Blues, topped the best-seller list at two different publications.
At www.Allromanceebooks.com,  A Taste of Italy, sits at number one in books for Red Rose Publishing.
Cajun Blues is first at www.redrosepublishing.com.
Reaching the top is always hard to do. But to accomplish the feat twice in the same week is amazing and something I'll cherish forever.
I'm not going to expect my next release will reach number one or put some high expectations on future books.
Until next time have a good week.

Can 49ers strike Gold in Seattle?

I love this time of year, especially when my team's a game within the Super Bowl.  The San Francisco 49ers face the Seattle Seahawks today in the NFC Championship Game, with the winner going to the Super Bowl.
I've been a San Francisco 49ers fan since my uncle lived there between 1963 and 1977. I guess becoming a 49ers fan started with my late mother and still loves with me and my younger brother.
 The city by the bay, as Steve Perry co-wrote and sang with Journey in their classic hit, "The Lights," didn't have many highlights when my uncle lived in San Francisco.
Things changed when Bill Walsh became coach in 1979, laid the foundations to five Super Bowl titles between 1982 and 1995.
One of the 49ers' greatest moments appeared in my first contracted book, Picking Cotton, at Red Rose Publishing. It's still available at Red Rose: http://redrosepublishing.com/books/product_info.php?manufacturers_id=100&products_id=1070
Steve Young's bizarre 49-yard touchdown run against the Minnesota Vikings in 1988, was historic because it helped the 49ers get into the Super Bowl and win it all (See picture above).
A similar defining moment occured in Picking Cotton for its main character, M.L. Cotton. He made a zig-zag 53-yard touchdown run with seconds remaining as Spanish Fort earned its first-ever state playoff berth in 1985. The Conquistadors didn't win a state title, reaching the quarterfinals, but M.L. landed a college scholarship to play quarterback at Tampa University.
Hopefully by midnight, I'll be celebrating the 49ers return to the Super Bowl.
Until next time.....

A Taste of Italy!

I'm continuing to reap the benefits of A Taste of Italy being free at www.AllRomanceebooks.com. The book moved up to second on ARE's list at Red Rose Publishing 's list of books on the site.

The E-book has been purchased and downloaded by several.

Author A.H. Scott wrote a great review of A Taste of Italy. Here's what she had to say:

"In K.T. Bishop's "A Taste Of Italy", basketball and love mix in a beautiful game of life. Netz is a basketball player, who seems to have a chip on his shoulder. But, as author K.T. Bishop unravels the character of Netz, it just shows this player is determined to live his dreams. Then, there's Giovanna, whose looks and intelligence intrigue Netz. "A Taste Of Italy" is a contemporary romance that leaves you rooting for those who dream."

Thank you, A.H. Scott. For those still interested in getting the book, here's the link: https://www.allromanceebooks.com/product-atasteofitaly-1387364-149.html

For years, I always avoided making New Year's Resolutions. But this year, I became one of billions to set lofty expectations for the next twelve months to try and follow.
I'm determined to make 2014 the year of K.T. Bishop and stamp his name in the everchanging world of E-books.
Five days into the new year, I'm off to a great start. A Taste of Italy is ranked third among best sellers at Allromanceebooks.com under the Red Rose Publishing flagship.
Italy is currently a free read for the next few days, but exposure on the website provides me with a heavy dose of marketability and publicity.
The strong run by A Taste of Italy also sheds my one-hit status label. Classified Love in 2012 was ranked seventh by ARE under Rebel Ink Press. I'm now what you call a "two-hit wonder."
I don't plan to rest on the laurels of Italy. Bookstrand, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and New York Times all have prestigous rankings I'm planning to be on someday.
Folks, when you get a chance, drop by ARE and pick up a copy of A Taste of Italy: https://www.allromanceebooks.com/product-atasteofitaly-1387364-149.html
Happy New Year and keep reaching for the stars!
