YOUTUBE READING 6TH TURN: KAT by REN GARCIA
This Blitz is a bit of a change of pace for us We are doing something different and fun as Author Ren Garcia is making YouTube videos telling you the backstory of each chapter in his book and then narrating the chapter. The Treasure Hunt Questions will be based on the videos and you can answer the questions in the Rafflecopter.
Ren Garcia is a Science Fiction/Fantasy author and Texas native who grew up in western Ohio. He has been writing since before he could write, often scribbling alien lingo on any available wall or floor with assorted crayons. He attended The Ohio State University and majored in English Literature.
Ren has been an avid lover of anything surreal since childhood. He also has a passion for caving, urban archaeology, taking pictures of clouds, and architecture. He currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, and their four dogs.
Raised in the dark under the lash of the Black Hat Sisterhood, when the woman who would become known as Kat, is sent on a suicide mission into the heart of the League, she was not expected to survive. Her mission: discover the identity of the fabled Shadow tech Goddess, a being who does not exist. All other considerations, including her possible death, are secondary.
But, Kat is guided by higher powers, by merciful hands that feed her, clothe her and whisper in her ear. As she watches the sun rise for the first time, she recalls their words: “Be strong,” they said. “You have much to live for.

with a removable lid,” it said.
She worked the lid until she managed to twist it off. She held the lid aloft in
triumph—she had mastered its operation. Inside the ‘jar’ was a
terrible-smelling substance. She got some of it on her fingers. It was cold and
slippery. “What is this?” she asked with disgust, wiping her fingers clean.
“That is an
alkaline surfactant of fatty acids scented with various perfumes and essential
oils. It’s commonly known as ‘soap’.”
“The soap is
vile-smelling,” she said.
“It’s meant to
cleanse your filthy body. Had you not been such a knobby slag, had you the
occasion to have been presented to a Warlord while in the Shade Church, you
would have been thoroughly cleansed with a similar surfactant, minus the
perfumes, of course.”

she had done to get the lid off, proud of her mastery of twisting and
untwisting things. “Then I shall keep it in trust for the gods and present it
to them when they arrive.” –Kat encountering a jar of soap
for the first time.
