General Questions

All of my series are now on a 6 month release schedule and will therefore get 2 books a year. I generally release in the middle of the month on some Tuesday, so you can guess from there. Preorders go up within the same week as the previous release (Book 6 preorder will come the week of book 5's release), so if you are reading the new release, you can probably find the next preorder.
Right now, the release months are such:

 

Jacky Leon Release Months: January and July
Everly Abbott Release Months: March and September
Kaliya Sahni Release Months: May and November

Standalones Novels, Novellas, and Anthologies:
I will sometimes write something outside of the series. This will go on preorder whenever. There's no real schedule for these right now. When there's a preorder, I'll let you know.

Check the series page. It'll be there if there's an answer.

Hardbacks are ONLY available for FIRST BOOK of each Tribunal Archive series at this point.
Servant of the Blood (Everly Abbott 1)
Oath Sworn (Jacky Leon 1)
Bounty (Kaliya Sahni 1)
And future book 1 of series.

Why?
Because I -currently- intend for this to be a special collection for signings and collectors and ME. Also, nearly no one buys print editions, even in paperback, which is more readily available and cheaper. Space and money are a consideration for most people. On my end, it takes 5-10 hours to make a hardback edition thanks to the covers(which I do, myself) and very few people would buy it.
IF the hardbacks sell REALLY well (like 1000 times better than paperbacks currently do), I will start doing hardbacks for every book. They wouldn't all happen at once. The backlog of what needs to be hardback would be slow. Like 2-3 books a month until I catch up. (See: Takes 5-10 hours for me to make the covers for hardback. I have books to write and would much rather be writing more than making these)
Amazon will mark every series complete, no matter if it is or not. What they're trying to say is they've made a 'complete' list of the available books, therefore they have the complete set of the series as it stands at any given time. This could just be the first book or the series or 5 books or whatever, but that's what they decided for the terminology, so we just have to live with it.
So stop sending me angry emails about how you thought the series was complete and then it wasn't. I won't reply and if I do, you will not like it.
Because I'm in Kindle Unlimited which requires (most) authors to be exclusive. I am required to be exclusive.
If you find and download my book online through any other site, it's piracy and therefore you are breaking the law.
Please don't. I have 5 pets to feed.
Well, normal paperbacks are available on Amazon. Just change the format on Amazon to paperback and it will be right there. (For some reason, not available in all countries. Go bother Amazon until they fix it).
Normal hardbacks should be available on Amazon too.
Signed paperbacks are only available in person or through giveaways, signings, or the occasional sale. Signed hardbacks are the same.
Not right now. I have better things to do with my time, like write the next book.
I no longer do POV's with regularity. I got tired of being asked for them and I got tired of doing them. It's rewriting something I've already written. I would rather write a short story, novella, or stand alone novel. I would rather write a series book.

Maybe if I have a big idea, I'll write another, but I no longer take requests, nor do them as any sort of reward.

Audio

Jacky Leon, Kaliya Sahni, and Everly Abbott are being worked on as fast as myself. a team member, and my narrators can.

 

I am an indie author and therefore, preorders for audiobooks is not worth the time and energy to get. They will be shared through social media once they are live.
Audiobooks don't enter production until the book has completed my entire editing process for the ebook and paperback. This is sometimes a month from a release, sometimes only a week (shit happens). We normally can't get started immediately (narrators have lives and other work that isn't just narrating for me, and my girl, Erika, listens to all of them for quality and consistency, but she's busy being a lawyer). Narration can take weeks to months. We submit it and it can take time for the approval process to come through. I've seen it go through in 3 days and in a month.
Then it goes live on a random day. We'll let you know when we see it.

 

Remember- Audiobooks of a series don't get produced if they don't sell.

 

The Redemption Saga will not be finished.
None of my other series are getting audiobooks or have audiobooks at this time.

More Official Questions

Well, it's a genre thing.
K.N. Banet: I write MF Urban Fantasy here(with an occasional paranormal romance standalone in the same world). And possibly MF epic fantasy one day as well. I want to.
 
Kristen Banet: I publish reverse harem series under this name. Any genre. If it has any sort of reverse harem in it, it's under this name. And yes, urban fantasy and epic fantasy can be reverse harem (check out The Redemption Saga or Age of the Andinna from me). So can horror, YA, and more. There's loads of amazing authors pushes the bounds of reverse harem and taking it into new genres. Currently, I am on an indefinite hiatus from this pen name and RH.
Reader: Possibly? Contact us and Andi will talk it over with you. We limit this because of the risk of pirated copies getting out before a release.
Blog/Booktube/bookstagram/booktok reviewers: Yes! If you reach out, Andi has got you covered. We would love to add you to the release ARC list as well!

Certainly! You can find my email on the About Page!

Yeah, I'll do them. Send me an email, explain what the interview is for and I'll get back to you! If you need any graphics for my books, all of that can also be handled. I promise, I'll answer the interview questions, not Andi (my PA). She just helps me stay on top of all the moving pieces.
Arizona.
No, you can't visit. Don't even joke about it. It feels weird and I don't like feeling weird.
I have a husband. You can call him Nick.
And then there's the zoo:
Sif, the border collie. He's the goodest boy that loves fetch and will nicely give you his toy for you to throw. All the time. It never stops.
Carbon, the cardigan welsh corgi. She's not the goodest girl 99% of the time, but if you catch her while she's sleepy, she'll cuddle with you.
Io, the tabby cat. Older, cranky, hates everyone and everything and really wants you to leave her alone. But also doesn't want to sit alone and will come sit in the same room as you. We love her for that.
Hades, the black cat. Chaos incarnate.
Kore, the siamese mix thing. She's crossed eyed and strange, but we love her any ways.

Questions about some different series

No.

I don't currently intend to write anything about what happens after the books have ended.

Begging won't change my mind.

 

On the subject of Rain, Alchan, and Lily:
To them, it was a very private, intimate, and honestly, awkward thing. It was hard dicussions and some arguments. It was troubling and difficult in some ways. So no, I will not write the sex scene to add to the spank banks. It's not appropriate to me to write it for that. Also, it's too intimate and private for me to even want to write.

We don't talk about that mission.

It was fun while it lasted.
Aw, my first series and it's follow-up. I hope I've gotten better since I've written it.
Witch of the Wild West was unpublished in early January of 2021.
The series is offficially cancelled and been pulled from the website as well.
Personal- In the most basic of terms, some of my early readers thought book two was trash. And they let me know. They hated the entire vision I had for it (and they left my team right after, leaving me fucking reeling). It completely killed my confidence in the little experimental fun series I was trying just to have a laugh of a series.
Professional- Shortly after that, book 2 released and all the sales were abysmal. They are two of my worst selling books since I started publishing. Very fews of my readers from my other series wanted to try them. If you want to know why it's important to support your favorite authors early in a series, this is why.
It is my only series to be cancelled and I hope to never have another.
