Celebrating Kate Richards' Latest Release

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Kate Richards' sexy and magical new menage fantasy with Musa Publishing.

AN APPLE AWAY by Kate Richards

The Wiccan Haus: A witch's spell great love may break

Aislinn never wants to see another doctor. Their painful and pointless treatments have done nothing to improve her rapidly deteriorating health. She hopes that the staff of Wiccan Haus can at least offer a change of scene, if not a return of a little of her former strength. She’s delighted to meet Punda, a masseuse, on her arrival and charmed by the cottage in the apple orchard where she will stay.

Dr. Hugo Peralta visits the island at the insistence of his boss. The distinguished brain surgeon is in desperate need of a respite before overwork makes him one of his own patients. He is surprised but pleased with the privacy and serenity of his cottage - across the orchard from Aislinn’s. An idyllic location on a magical island where love can blossom - if the Rowans can help the trio save Aislinn from whatever is killing her.


Kate Richards is a SoCal dweller with a beach-loving family. She spends as much time as she can in the Pacific waves, but when surf’s not up she enjoys writing, reading, and growing vegetables in her garden.

Writing erotic romance is a dream come true. Kate’s first release, Finally, My Love, was a loose, very loose, adaptation of when she met her beloved husband online nine years ago. Since then she has sold several other books, but Finally will always be close to her heart.


WIN - Leave a question today for Kate and your name goes in the hat for one of two prizes - either a copy of her book or a T-shirt.  Please leave your email address so we can contact you if you are one of Kate's winner's today!


  1. Hello Kate and super congrats on your new release!

    Please tell us all about your new book and since you're new to AuthorIsland, please tell us about yourself and how we can learn more about you.

    Please tell us about this series, is The Wiccan Haus your series or a multi-author series for Musa?

    I love magical romances so I can't wait to read it!

    I hope you enjoy your cyber launch party and I hope AN APPLE AWAY is your biggest seller yet!

    Have fun!

  2. Hi, good morning! First cup of coffee, so I'm almost awake. The Wiccan Haus is a multi author series at Musa Publishing, one of my favorite houses! Dominique Eastwick asked me to write for it and I was thrilled, first, of course to be asked, and then because it was so inspiring. I was excited and nervous about stepping into this world, because I'm used to my own series, but it's such an amazing place, I couldn't help but fall in love.

    1. Great to have you here! I just saw the great character interview you did - it gives a great insight into the book, so I thought I'd share the link again in case any readers are interested in heading over to take a look.


  3. I love me a party:) So thrilled to have you as part of the series, you really have added to the world :)

  4. Congrats, Kate. It sounds like a lovely story!

  5. Yep Cafe Risque was sweet enough to host me and it was a lot of fun at their place, still chatting with readers!

  7. I started celebrating at Lori Foster's get together right before the release with all kinds of swag and I had a blast with the readers and a bunch of wonderful authors!

  8. Woo-hoo! It's a party. I love the Wiccan Haus world, and I love Punda, Aislinn and especially Hugo. ;)

  9. Hugo is kind of charming, isn't he :)
