Kate in The Gazette: Indie Author Day, 10/13

Check it out, I’m in The Gazette! Again, I mean, because I worked for The G for years, but I’m thrilled they were able to preview my upcoming visit to Colorado Springs this weekend. An excerpt: Self-publishing was not the path (Jonuska) imagined as a young writer, but it turned out to make the most sense, […]

Transference featured in the Denver Post

My novel Transference was chosen as a Staff Pick over at the Denver Post and was featured with the headline: Kate Jonuska’s “Transference” has delightfully despicable characters who earn their laughs I love it!

Transference reviewed in the Daily Camera

Clay Bonnyman Evans, book reviewer and author of the upcoming Bones of My Grandfather: Reclaiming a Lost Hero of WWII, reviewed Transference for the Daily Camera, based in Boulder, CO.
