Update #2 - LATEST NEWS from Kathy Wade Aug. 25, 2018

Greetings to all who've supported my novel, PERFECTION! Here's an update on the book's progress.

August 2018


PERFECTION is now available on Audiobook! Download the Free App – Audible – at, then upload the audiobook version of PERFECTION. You will be awed by Leah Frederick’s rendering of the novel. Readers say PERFECTION (the book) is a quick, smooth, can’t-put-down read.  Well, the Audiobook is all that… and more. For all those who like to “hear” their books, this Audiobook is a must! (Special twist: I had the privilege to teach Narrator Leah Frederick when she was a student in my high-school English and drama classes!!) Talk about full-circle....

AUTHOR ON THE ROAD: Book signings and book clubs…

Would your book club enjoy reading PERFECTION, then hosting the author? I’ve been an honored guest at nearly a dozen book clubs or book signings since April. What fun! Here’s a ‘testimonial’ from one book-club participant:

“It was truly a pleasure and honor to have you come to our book club.  We all felt the book was tremendous, but having your input raised our appreciation to a whole new level.  You captured the spirit and the angst of the period of Church growth that many of us experienced….  What an enriching experience to wonder and then find out how an author writes a book. It’s like being in on an inner secret that makes the book even more relatable and intense.  The insight I gained will stay with me forever.”

Contact me if you’d like me to visit your group discussion… as long as it isn’t too far away from home, I’d love to be there. 


If you haven’t visited my new website, please go to:  for blog articles, sample chapter of PERFECTION, videos, and Readers’ Reviews.


I know hundreds of you have read PERFECTION, but only 30 or so have left a review on my page. If you enjoyed the book, PLEASE DO leave a review! Every review moves me closer to promotion by Amazon. And it’s a real way to keep track of my readers.


Join me (if you’re in town) at Books by the Banks, Cincinnati’s Regional Book Festival, Saturday, October 20, 2018, 10 am – 4 pm at the Duke Energy Convention Center downtown.  I’ll be there promoting my novel, PERFECTION, along with other selected authors. Check out:, for more info.

THANK YOU! Your support and well-wishes have kept me going as I navigate what are uncharted waters for me -- the world of publishing. If you loved the book, please spread the word. I'm deeply grateful.
