Updated: Want to talk about the books?

KDT is growing in popularity, but unfortunately, it’s not so widespread that all of your neighbors and co-workers will get your KDT-inspired humor. Do you have a desire to talk to other KDT fans about the books? There are places to do that! Here are a few that I know of, and you guys are welcome to let me know if you find or create others.

  1. A Goodreads discussion group called King’s Dark Tidings has been founded by a KDT fan. Click here to join.
  2. A Goodreads reading group called Reading Addicts has selected KDT to be the topic of discussion this month, including Q&A with yours truly. Click here to join.
  3. My Amazon Author Forum has a very vocal group. (Sorry, I cannot join in on these discussions directly, but I do follow them with interest). Click here to participate.
  4. Right here! You can post comments on my blog! (www.kelkade.com)
  5. (Update) Here is another one someone sent me: Subreddit for King’s Dark Tidings

Please enjoy talking to each other, and try to drag as many of your neighbors and co-workers into the discussions as you can. (Maybe not during work hours, though, unless your job is to discuss books.)

    Love your books. The Don Quixote comment on your Amazon page (and your reference to it in your August update) made me want to ask you if you had seen / were a fan of the movie Being There starring Peter Sellers? While reading KDT, I loved the way people coming in contact with Rez interpreted his simple, straightforward, and truthful statements and actions through the prisms of their own experiences. Like the reaction of political and business elites to Chance the Gardner (aka Chauncey Gardner) in Being There, Rez’s “friends” do not see him as naive or unworldly. Instead, they project onto him the epitome of all that is noble. Unlike Chance, however, Rez is not actually simple-minded. As time goes by he begins to recognize the tendency of people to misinterpret his words and actions such that, in Reign of Madness, he is able to manipulate them (albeit still for noble purposes) with implications based on purposeful omissions. Great series. Can’t wait for number 3.

      Thank you for writing to me. I don’t think I’ve seen “Being There,” but now that you mention it, I’ll look it up when I have the time. I’m glad you appreciate the subtleties of the character interactions. I hope you enjoy the rest of the series.

    There’s also a brand new subreddit dedicated to the books! https://www.reddit.com/r/kingsdarktidings/

    There’s not much there yet, but everyone is invited to start discussing things over there.

    I greatly enjoyed reading your books. I have them both on my kindle but they’re so good I’m considering buying them all in print when the next one comes out. The main character was a breath of fresh air to me, his knowledge of the world is astounding but he adapts quite well when his ignorance of the “way of world” becomes apparent. I’ve recommended this to my sisters and I’ll continue to tell others. I’m uber excited about the third installment!

      Thank you for passing on the recommendation to your family and friends. Hopefully I’ll have the books out in print soon. I’m still working on that. I appreciate your taking a moment to write to me.

    Indeed! I was fortunate enough to stumble across your books and ran through them in about a week. Since then I’ve had 3 friends read them. We shall make this as wildfire.
    I know this is answered somewhere, which December is the next supposed to come out, this?

      Thanks for your support. Yes, I am shooting for this December, but I am not optimistic about making my self-imposed deadline. It will be soon, though. I appreciate you recommending the books to your friends!

    I’ve been shilling your books to everyone I know, even people who don’t read, just to have someone to talk to. Thanks for posting all of these resources! It’s always fun to gush with other fans. Do you know exactly when the Q&A is planned for? Thanks for your wonderful books and happy writing!

    P.S. If for some strange reason you find yourself wanting beta readers, I volunteer myself. (I actually have experience, so I always ask)

      I’m glad you are excited about the books, and thank you for recommending them to the people you know. The Q&A is going on all month. People post their questions and discussion topics, and I log on to answer. You could do the same here, but in the group you have the chance to see other people’s questions and remarks as well.
