About the Author

Shae Ford is a USA Today bestselling author from a not-so-small town outside of Ft. Worth, Texas. She comes from a long line of storytellers, and has spent countless hours seated at the kitchen table: listening to the fisherman’s tales, passionate political rants, and sidesplitting antics of her often-mischievous extended family. Her mother, who could always find room in the budget for a new book, has been the unwitting accomplice to several of Shae’s minor classroom crimes — from excessive doodling in the margins, to concealing the latest “Harry Potter” book beneath the pages of her algebra assignment.

She has yet to be charged.

Shae’s debut series, “Fate’s Forsaken,” follows the story of a young man who is gifted with extraordinary powers, but plagued by rotten bad luck. Having the chance to share his many (mis)adventures with readers all over the world has been the opportunity of a lifetime, and a journey she’ll never forget.

    I’m in love with your Fates Forsaken series! I read them through out my workday via Audible. Could you possibly tell me when DayBreak will be on Audible? They make my day go by so much faster. I feel like I am being sucked in to the amazing world you have created, I don’t even feel like I’m at work.

      Hey, Randi– thanks for stopping by! I am so happy to hear that you’ve been enjoying the Fate’s Forsaken series on Audible. Derek Perkins does an absolutely fantastic job, and I am very eager to listen to his narration of Daybreak! I did receive some news from Podium last week, and am optimistic that the Daybreak audiobook will be available for pre-order by the end of the month. However, I have been optimistic before. So I’m going to hold off on making an announcement until I get an official release date.

      Believe me: the moment I know for sure, I’m going to send out a newsletter blast. So check your spam folder 😀

      Thank you again for your post, Randi, and for the kind words about my books. Have a wonderful week!

    I started reading fate’s forsaken September 26th now 4 weeks later I’ve finished reading the whole series, for the second time. Out of the literal 100s of books (seriously own in the neighborhood of 400 fiction books) I’ve read since I figured out books are awesome way back in sixth grade 15 years ago, this by far and wide my favorite. I kid you not I think this is best story ever written. I just have one problem….. are you absolutely sure you not going to write anymore stories about Kael and Kyliegh? Cause as ridiculous as this may sound I’m just not ready for their stories to end.

      Hi, Kevin– thanks for the post! Wow, the whole series twice in four weeks? I’m seriously impressed!

      Yes, books ARE awesome. Pretty sure they’re the closest thing to “magic” that the real world has to offer. I’m honored that the Fate’s Forsaken series is your favorite … though I must admit that all that praise makes it hard to stay humble 😉 But truly, thank you for letting me know. Having the opportunity to share these stories has been the adventure of a lifetime– and to hear that my readers have been enjoying it so much is just the icing on the cake.

      Now to answer your question: Kyleigh and Kael are a tremendous force in the Kingdom. It would be impossible to write anything about the future without including them in it. And, as you know, Kyleigh’s story began long before Kael. So it’s likely that we’ll hear from them again somewhere within those parameters. But for now, they will be relinquishing their roles as “main” characters.

      Again, thank you so much for reading Kevin, and for taking the time to leave me a post. If you have any other questions, you know where to find me! In the meantime, have a wonderful week 🙂

    I stumbled across your books via a suggestion from Goodreads and am really enjoying listening to them on Audiobook. Is there a release date for the 4th book Daybreak on Audio?

    1. Shae Ford (Post author)

      Hello, EmTay! I’m glad to hear you’ve been enjoying the Fate’s Forsaken series thus far– and thank you for letting me know how you found it! I was debating about whether or not to run another campaign with Goodreads, so it’s great to know that people are finding me there.

      As for Daybreak‘s audio release: I haven’t heard anything new since I made that post in the announcements during the ebook’s launch. Podium works quickly, so I highly suspect it will be out within another month. As soon as I receive word, I’ll let everybody know through a newsletter and all the various social media outlets.

      Until then, I want to thank you for reading, EmTay– and have a wonderful weekend!

    Hi Shae,

    I have just finished reading Daybreak. What an adventure this complete series was. Totally mesmerising. I’m so glad that the story had a fairy tale ending. I think a lot of people would like to live the life of Kael and Kylieh, and which is why I’m going to miss these characters. Do please keep us updated on your new projects. Would look forward to many more such super stories from you. Thanks.

      Hi Tauseef! I’m very happy to hear that you found Daybreak to be a worthy end to the series. Our characters have had a long, and often difficult journey– their happiness was well-deserved. It would be nice to be able to hop between the pages of a book and experience the worlds our characters live in (I spent much of my childhood waiting for a letter from Hogwarts … am still waiting). But the good news is that because these worlds only exist inside books, they’re never going to change. They won’t crumble, they won’t fade. Whenever you’re ready for an adventure, the Kingdom will be waiting 🙂

      Thank you for your post, Tauseef– and for your kind words about the Fate’s Forsaken series. It’s been an honor to have the opportunity to share these stories! I will certainly keep everyone posted on what I plan to do next. In the meantime, thank you for reading, and have a wonderful week!
