I am currently about 45% through the first round of edits for my debut fantasy novel, Of Blood and Briar! Things are coming together so, so well and I’m hoping to still hit my goal of a September release date.
The first four chapters are now available to preview here on my website! You can find the link up top or click here to check it out.
I have added The Thorn of Emerill, a short fantasy novella, over on my store so you can pay what you want for a 68 page PDF. Any paid purchases will be going to help fund the purchase of goodies for book launch including shirts, posters, and more.
With things wrapping up for Of Blood and Briar, expect to see a lot more information over the next month including official release date, preorder information, and more!
After spending the last few years trying to juggle different sites for my creative pursuits, I finally decided to just merge everything under one easy to remember umbrella, and thus, Rouhier Creates was…err…created.
As this is the first blog post going up here on the site, I thought I’d explain a little about who I am, what I do, and what I create around here. First and foremost, my name is Kaitlyn – artist, author, and serial hobbyist. I’m a 29-year-old currently residing in the fire prone mountains of Southern Oregon. I love reading, art, music, Critical Role (I’m almost caught up – just finished episode 67), and video games. After some steadily worsening health woes started having a heavy impact on my life, I decided to turn my focus back on the things that I am truly passionate about.
One of those passions is writing. I’m a fantasy author and have written a young adult trilogy called the Allseer Trilogy. I’m continuing work on an adult fantasy novel called Of Blood and Briar that I hope to have out next year and I’m also in the final stages of editing a novella called The Thorn of Emerill which I hope to release later this month. If you’d like to check out my YA trilogy, you can find it on Amazon. It is available in paperback and for Kindle! You can also find me on Goodreads!
Another thing you’ll see often around here is my digital art. Art has always been a joy for me and is something I am constantly striving to get better at. I’m self-taught and, through many trials and a fair share of errors, have finally reached a point where I’m able to start pushing my skill level and creating more complicated drawings and paintings. My favorite thing to draw/paint is characters, either original or characters from my favorites shows and video games. I’m mildly obsessed with drawing horns, freckles, braids, and glow effects. I recently opened up commissions, so if you’ve been wanting to have a d&d character or an OC drawn, I’d love to help!
I plan to add a lot more to the site and will be posting process images, writing and art resources, tutorials, d&d dice, and more so check back often to see what is new!
