About ~CRK

My name is Claire Katsion, but you may call me ~CRK, which is my unique pen name for my equally-as-unique self. Not knowing where to turn in this hard world of publishing, I decided independent e-publishing would be the easiest way for me to get my foot in the door.
If you like my works, please feel free to download/buy them and to tell your friends!
Please enjoy my free content on this site and share my books with your friends and family if you enjoy them. It means the world to me that people are reading my books. And please take a few minutes to leave a review or short comment on the books or stories you enjoy. I love reading them; it makes me smile knowing my words touch others. My completed, professionally-edited novels will all be available for $2.95, and all minor books will be available for 99 cents. You can sample everything before you buy, so please consider purchasing my novels!

If I had to describe my style, I honestly couldn't put it to words, so I hope you will read "Flicker," my first published short story (for free!) to get a feel for my style and wording.

Thanks for reading!

In addition, I shall be adding prices to my books from now on because I am trying to pick up some extra money. Please be assured that the free short stories shall ALWAYS stay free. I promise. A new short story to add to the growing trend will be posted before the end of this year. Thanks for the 100 downloads once again!! Please stay tuned for more updates...

*NEW* As "Something" reaches 100 downloads for the current free short story installment, I have a little challenge to propose for the next free short story to be available for everyone to read. This time, I will publish another free short story if "Something" reaches 100 downloads and has two reviews from different customers as well as if one of my main novels gets two [additional] reviews by different readers. Please be honest in your reviews! I would love to hear feedback from my readers on what you think of the story or what I could do better for next time--or even if you'd like to see a sequel or not! Thanks for following my works and reading my books! Don't forget to send word on to your friends and family, too. E-books and E-readers make a good Christmas gift!

*Thanks for the 100 downloads/reads on The Adventures of Maryan! If we hit 250 reads/downloads, I will publish another Maryan book that will include bonus stories and more fun projects!*
*Thanks so much for the 50 reads/downloads of my first novel! I will try my best to finish the sequel and to publish it sometime early next year (around May 2015). As I do not hire any editors, I edit and proofread the documents myself, so that takes some extra time. Thanks for being patient. For now, please continue to support my novels!*

"Flicker" Special
My first short story I self-published has been gaining attention with its unique flavor and its "free" price tag. In this video, I explain a bit about where the story first came from and name some facts about the story. Please help to continue to support me as an author. Referrals, comments, reviews, and reads mean everything to me! Thanks!

Review by: Titans on Jan. 06, 2014 :
A great story of the fears we experience as a child, and how we face and overcome those fears. Flicker brings me back to my own childhood fear of the darkness at my house. I remember late at night, I would cover myself in a blanket going over my head, being close to the nightlight and/or the furnace vent depending if I was cold. I felt if I looked back the “”night monster”” would get me. LoL. Oh my, I remember being over that furnace vent for hours even. Better yet, when I was young, coming upstairs from the basement, I would hit the stair light switch at the bottom of the stairs, and rush up the stairs being afraid that the “”monster”” would get me if I did not go fast. Haha what’s funny, is that there is a light switch at the top of the stairs too. Sadly, what’s even more hilarious, I remember maybe one year ago, rush up the stairs “”in fear”” after turning off the light switch at the bottom of the stairs. LoL, oh wow. I feel like such a dummy sometimes.
