My official good-bye post

This final blog post should come as no surprise, since I announced my decision months ago. To those of you who’d like some clarification, here’s my official statement now that the final Blue Ruin book has been released upon the world.

I’m retiring from the erotic romance genre, both M/M and M/F. In fact, I’m taking a break from writing professionally altogether for an indeterminate time while I pursue other creative outlets. In doing so, I’m parting ways with Katrina Strauss. I leave you with her stories, and hope readers continue to derive enjoyment and meaning from them.

My first novel came out July 2006; by pure coincidence, my final novel has seen a July release as well. I’ll take that bit of synchronicity as a sign I’m facing in the right direction. My sincerest thanks to all of you who’ve offered support, of both the moral and immoral variety, these past eight years. Take care, and best wishes in all that you do.

Series finale Blue Ruin 5: Only You is available now at Loose Id!

 At long last, the fifth and final Blue Ruin book is available for your reading pleasure. Thanks to a special sale, the price is currently marked down from $5.99 to $4.79. Get your copy today at Loose Id:

I will post additional sales links over the next few weeks as BR5 becomes available on Amazon and other outlets.

I want to thank loyal readers who've stuck with Derek and Blue on the rollercoaster ride that has been Blue Ruin. What started out as my western M/M homage to Japanese yaoi, manga, and anime eventually grew into something beyond that. I also want to thank you for sticking with me over the course of my erotic romance career, whether you came on board during my early M/F days, or discovered my books after I switched to the M/M side. BR5 is not only the series finale, but my grand finale as Katrina Strauss. I will post my official "retirement letter" in the near future. Until then, please keep an eye out for those additional sales links for Blue Ruin 5: Only You, if you haven't grabbed your discounted copy at Loose Id first.

Cheers, and happy reading! Goodbyes aren't easy, but I hope you'll find this last adventure with Derek, Blue, and company to be a fitting send-off.
