NEW COVER, BONUS CONTENT, NEW AUDIO ADDITIONS COMING NEXT MONTH! (Well, the audio may be a little later, I don’t have those details yet.)
This is a title I released originally in 2015 as Tabula Rasa. The title was confusing and the blurb was confusing. This is one of my absolute favorite books I’ve written but I was really really off brand with the marketing. With so many books out in the world, if the reader is confused, the reader doesn’t buy.
So I re-released it in 2021 with a better title: The Monster Keeps Me Safe. That’s definitely a less confusing title than “Tabula Rasa”.
The only problem was… the book cover, though beautiful, looks like modern PNR (kind of like “Friends with the Monsters” if you’re familiar with that book or have seen that cover, it has a similar vibe.)
The blurb was also similarly metaphorical with terms like “monster,” “castle”, “cage”. So any reasonable person would look at the book and think it’s a Paranormal book.
And I wouldn’t blame them. But this book is a contemporary dark romance.
So let’s try this ONE MORE TIME. I really believe in this book and don’t want my own marketing mistakes to keep it from reaching the kind of audience it otherwise could. Maybe you are a part of that potential audience, someone who saw it and thought “meh” because I didn’t package it right so you’d know this is a book you’d love!
And if you like dark contemporary romance with a contract killer and kidnapping element you will love it! If you enjoyed my novella, Trust Game, the hero in this has very similar vibes to the hero in that (though they are distinct characters, not copies of each other.)
SO… here’s what’s happening with The Monster Keeps Me Safe… it’s being re-released next month…Cover reveal coming soon… (though I’m sure you can make some educated guesses about the cover if you’ve seen my Facebook Page or Twitter Profile recently).
The book has a new cover, a new blurb, and a prologue and bonus epilogue from Shannon’s POV which will be put into the new print version.
AND… I have a new audiobook cover AND I’m adding the bonus epilogue and the new prologue to the audiobook. I will announce the narrator soon!
If you already purchased The Monster Keeps Me Safe in audiobook on Audible, you will be able to get the updates for FREE!
When it’s ready, all you need to do is delete it from your device and then go back into your library and re-download and you’ll have the newest version. I don’t know yet what the release date will be on the audio but you can stay informed either by subscribing to this blog (check the grey box at the bottom of this post), OR by subscribing to my Newsletter (you can either use the popup at kittythomas.com or you can scroll down to the bottom on the homepage and there is a subscribe button there.)
You can’t count on social media to inform you when I have something new. Social Media platforms generally only show content to 1% of a person’s followers, so it’s not a reliable way to stay on top of new things from me.
I’ll keep you updated as this re-release develops with the cover reveal, narrator announcement, etc.

Thanks so much for reading and supporting my work!
