~ Blurb

The world against dragons. One girl against the world.

There are dragons in the Arizona Mountains, and only Alita Drake knows it. No one believed her at three years old when she stumbled across them during a family picnic. They certainly wouldn’t believe her now.

Not that she’s allowed to tell anyone anyway—her dragon, Yackros, made that clear. The other dragons can never know about the human who now visits their hidden forest, and humans aren’t supposed to know about dragons.

But nothing stays secret forever.

Now Alita must accept that she alone can save her dragon from the dark clutches of Ruxsiu, a false king acting as ruler. Finding the true dragon king can save her best friend, but it isn’t something she can do alone. She must convince her boyfriend to help despite his disbelief in dragons and trust a strange old librarian in the race to save the only relic that can fix everything—the dragon’s pearl.

Relaunching - The Why and How

~ The Why

September 27th, 2013. My debut, Only Half Alive, released out into the world. I was proud of the book. I wrote it and published it. I accomplished something so many people told me I never would.

I'm often asked, "If you could give your younger self-advice, what would it be?" And my answer is, "Wait. Learn more about the craft. Learn how to market. Do the work."

I made every rookie mistake possible. The writing wasn't great. The story contained too many plotholes to count. Contradictions, character flaws (and not the kind that help readers relate to them), magic plot-solving. Oh, and umm ... yeah apparently I wrote a character in that is literally in two scenes and never mentioned again. Oops. My bad.

Then there is the great KU vs Wide debate. For those not familiar with what that means, here is the break down:

KU = Kindle Unlimited. Amazon's exclusive program where authors get paid per page read.
Wide = Books available on multiple sites such as Amazon, iBooks, Google Play, Kobo, and more.

There are pros and cons to both and each author must decide for themselves the best route to take.

Up until this year I have been exclusive to Amazon. All of my books were in the Kindle Unlimited program. But sadly the cons for me personally outweigh the pros. So it was time to change things.

So there it is ... my books need an update, and it's time to go wide.

~ The How ~


Right now I have eight books published, all in uncompleted series.

The Only Series - 2/5 Books Available
1. Only Half Alive
2. Only Barely Dead

The Finding Gold Series - 4/8 Books Available
1. Missing Royal
2. The Enchanted Rose
3. Once Upon an Assassin
4. Beauty's Thief

The Eclipsed Series - 1/3 Books Available
1. Magic Me This

Stand-Alone's -
- Curse of the Undead Dragon King

On May 8th they will be removed from Amazon and the current versions of those books will no longer be available for purchase.

Each book will be thoroughly edited and revised. They will undergo one initial round of revisions before heading to my content editor for three rounds of development. After that, they will be handed over to the line editor.

There will be brand new content, better content, but the same stories readers have already fallen in love with.

Then comes time to re-release the books.

Unlike before, they won't be published in a random and sporadic order. Take a look at the schedule for the next year!



I am ecstatic for all the changes! And I hope you are too! Feel free to comment with your thoughts and/or questions!

Hinder by Kristin Ping + an EPIC Giveaway!


Book Title: Hinder: A Bender’s Novel
Series: The Guardian Of Monsters 
Genre: NA Paranormal Fantasy Author: Kristin Ping
Publisher: Fire Quill Publishing 
Release Date: 15th  May 2018

ABOUT THE BOOK

Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that’s what he’s trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals,  Ethan is
what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches’ Guardians, who are able to control a witches’ ability,
bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan’s case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one  of two things:  His Wielder is either dead, or hiding  out somewhere.

Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt’s locket for the past sixteen years with her mother —a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find  her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake.



Kristin resides in South Africa with her husband, two beautiful girls and two bulldogs that tries to eat her house. She has been writing for the past eight years and her first debut novel, Hinder: A Bender's novel will be published 2018 by Fire  Quill Publishing.

When she isn't writing, she is spending her time with her family, or trying to teach her two bulldogs to not eat her house. You can find more about Kristin at www.authorkristinping.com
