Coming soon...

One remarkable thing about writing a series is that ideas can sometimes be percolating for years. When I began work on Would-Be Witch, I realized that Tammy Jo's closest living relatives were her aunt and her mother. Those witchy women did not appear in book 1 or book 2. We meet Tammy's Aunt Melanie briefly in Halfway Hexed. But it isn't until Casually Cursed that we will not only meet her mother Marlee, but actually get to see where she's been all this time. Are you excited? I hope so because I'm excited to have written this particular installment with so many mysteries finally revealed.

Coming to stores & sites on: FEBRUARY 3, 2015

Comicpalooza 2014


Comicpalooza in 2014 was the biggest and best yet. Thousands of people. Great costumes.

 I had fun on panels with Rachel Caine, Martha Wells, DL Young and others.  I got to meet Southern Witch fans who were funny and charming. (SW readers are the best! Thank you for coming out!)

Cary Elwes was hilarious and handsome in person. So glad we made it to see him.

It was also fun to listen to an author friend's wild stories. Safe travels home, Mario!

I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend wherever you were. Next year I hope to see you in Houston for Comicpalooza 2015

Kimber Sigthings : Part I

 I am not as rarely sighted as a dusky seaside sparrow--that's a little inside joke for Southern Witch readers who are caught up on the latest in the series. Have you read your copy of Slightly Spellbound yet?--but I'm not spotted around town that often. 

So when I visit places in person, I try to share the news & the pics. I know that you really want to see proof that I exist. ;)

These photographs were taken at my favorite bookstore, Murder by the Book. Like me, it can be found residing in Houston. I've signed there seven times since becoming published, and every time has been a blast! They have so many loyal customers, which isn't a surprise since the staff has a great eye for new talent!

As a reader I've been to fantastic MBB events. Jasper Fforde, Alexander McCall Smith, and Charlaine Harris are all so funny and charming in person, you would not believe it. Or you might, if you've read their books. ;)

Southern Witch story release!

It's been awhile since I've had a new story come out, so I'm excited to bring you the latest installment in the Southern Witch series. This 15,000-word story is short and fun and deals with a little problem that was left lingering at the end of Halfway Hexed. Here's the blurb:

It was the best of times, it was the cursed of times—in this Southern Witch novella from national bestselling author Kimberly Frost.

Tammy Jo Trask is headed to Galveston, Texas for the Dickens on the Strand festival, but there’s no idyllic vacation in her future—not with two magically shrunken ladies trapped in her luggage. Jenna and Lucy were trying to kidnap Tammy Jo when she took them down a notch. The only trouble is she can’t reverse the spell and neither can her gorgeous wizard beau Bryn.

Now Tammy’s hoping to get help from a Galveston ghost named Sally O’Shea. In exchange for her help, Sally sends Tammy Jo and Bryn on a strange and mysterious mission. Bryn is convinced it’s a wild goose chase, but Sally has a few dark secrets up her spectral sleeves, and their fool’s errand quickly turns epic.

Writing Hardships: Research in 4-star hotels
 As you might imagine, a writer's life can be difficult. Sitting in bed in one's pajamas, drinking coffee and typing...so challenging.

But one of the most trying things has to be traveling to gorgeous places to do research. I recently traveled to the Tremont House in Galveston to stay for a night to do research for Magical Misfire, a Southern Witch electronic novella that comes out in April.

I needed to figure out how far the reportedly haunted hotel where Tammy Jo stays is from other locations. Is it in walking distance from the former Red Light district where there used to be a row of brothels during Victorian times? Is the hotel close to the pier where the party boats dock? 

The Tremont was beautiful and the staff were lovely. I had all my questions answered and dinner was delicious. I was unfortunately not contacted by any of the resident ghosts. Maybe next time! 


This is the local map I used prior to arriving to figure out the relative locations of things. Isn't it cute?

I also really appreciated websites that had information and pictures from Dickens on the Strand. (It's a yearly Christmastime festival where people dress in costume and the streets are transformed to Victorian era London. So much fun!)

The website that cracked me up the most however was one that helped me with slang used by Victorian prostitutes. More on that to come!


Here's the lobby. Isn't it great? The bartender made me an excellent Tequila Sunrise. Perfect for a beach vacation. Oranges are summery, aren't they?

Anyway, if you want a getaway, I recommend the island and this hotel. It's within walking distance to a lovely bookstore, some great eateries, a historical ship that actually sails, and a hundred-year-old sweet shop.

I know what you're thinking. The trials of being a writer never end. And yet...I will continue to soldier on. :)








MAGICAL MISFIRE:

During a small-town skirmish, Would-Be Witch Tammy Jo Trask foils a kidnapping plot with a spell that shrinks her nemesis Jenna to a doll-sized diva. When the reversal spells to restore Jenna’s size don’t work, Tammy Jo and gorgeous wizard Bryn Lyons are forced to turn to the ghost of a Victorian-era prostitute who haunts Galveston Island.

Since Sullied Sal only appears to tourists during the yearly celebration of Dickens on the Strand when Victorian food, fare, and fashion are once again the norm, Tammy Jo and Bryn join the festivities. Unfortunately being squeezed into a corset is just the beginning of the trouble in store for Tammy—and the island—when Tammy Jo and Bryn seek the advice of the gaudy ghost.

Southern Witch Covers get a makeover!

Later this year, the publisher will begin re-issuing the Southern Witch novels in mass market paperback. The releases of Would-Be Witch, Barely Bewitched, and Halfway Hexed will lead up to the release of brand new Southern Witch stories. 

In preparation for the relaunch of the series, the books are getting new covers. The art department always does a fantastic job, but I have to say that this is my favorite cover so far! I hope you love it, too!

Tammy Jo Lives On...

Okay, so this map looks like a 5-year-old made it. (No one ever said--or will say--that I can draw.) But I have to have a quick reference. And so far Google Earth has not traveled to Tammy Jo's Duvall. C'mon, Google, help an author out!

Do you like the stuffed Merc holding up the map? (So cute, right!?) Like Mercutio himself, stuffed Mercs are quite rare.

So I'm not showing you this map just for heck of it. I have some Southern Witch news. Awhile ago, I promised readers that I would return to Tammy Jo when I caught my breath after a whirlwind 2011 writing schedule for the Etherlin.

When I finally started work on what I thought would be an electronic novella for fans, my agent and publisher joined the party. So now there will be at least two more full length novels, one short novella, and who knows what else. Hurray!

I'll keep you posted on all the details as I get them.

Many thanks to the fans of this series. I'm convinced that you made this happen by buying and talking up the books. Thank you! As always, you're the reason I write. :)

ALL THAT FALLS - Release!


It's been such a long time since I posted. Bad author! Some nice things have happened. ALL THAT BLEEDS, the first novel in the Etherlin series was a Barnes & Noble "Must Read" for its release month. And ATB got some great reviews, the latest from Fresh Fiction which I'll post on the site.

So here we are just six months later, and it's time for the second novel ALL THAT FALLS. I have to say that this book is the sexiest I've written so far. And it's premise was one that really inspired me.


Here's the ALL THAT FALLS back cover blurb...

She should never have touched his blood...

The Etherlin muses have long served as a source of divine inspiration.
Now their world stands between the forces of Heaven and Hell.

As his muse, Cerise propelled her musician boyfriend to the heights of fame, but when he died under mysterious circumstances, her powers vanished. Now cerise is plagued by disturbing half-formed memories of his final night...until she meets Lysander, who seems to hold the key to restoring her memories and abilities.

Fallen archangel Lysander is consumed by his quest for redemption until it leads him to the captivating Cerise. Now his thirst for revenge is rivaled only by his passion for the woman he can't forget.

Bound by blood and stalked by a deadly enemy, will they pay the ultimate price for succumbing to their passion?


As one reader said, "This book has it all. Sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Plus sexy angels, demons, and muses in one action-packed and suspenseful ride. It's Frost at her best."

I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
