Hey friends! Guess what? I’ve got a brand new novel coming into the world today! An all new cast of characters. An all new world. All new twists, turns, secrets, adventures, and romance! A story that’s been in the works for going on two years. If you’re in the market for a new book, I hope you’ll give this one a try!
A girl with nothing. A prince with everything. Only one can win.
In a world of haves and have nots, where petty crime is punishable by death and magic is forbidden, a deadly contest unfolds in secret. Twelve competitors are mysteriously invited. The winner gets one wish.
For 17-year-old Briar Bishop, this means saving her brother from execution by guillotine, and she’s not going to let anything or anyone get in her way. Especially not Leo Davenbrook, the handsome High Prince, who has grown up with everything she never had and whose very presence threatens her chance at survival. She has no idea a darker battle wages, one that could lead to a fate far worse than the death of her brother.
“K. E. Ganshert thrills with this adventurous, addictive read! Her ability to tap into the young adult mind and pen a story that is appealing, intriguing, and thought-provoking is second to none. And yet, this older adult mind enjoyed every minute between the pages of this compelling tale of avarice and sacrifice, danger and romance. With shades of The Hunger Games but a unique feel all its own, The Contest is a foray into the best of any YA fantasy romance!”

Hey All! Just hopping on here to say that it’s official. LUKA (a companion novel) is out in the world, available for purchase on paperback and Kindle.
If you’re on the market for something to read, here’s the scoop on this one!
Fans of the The Gifting series have long been asking for more and award-winning author K.E. Ganshert has delivered! Experience the intrigue, the romance, and the chilling world of The Gifting, where the mentally unstable are locked away and belief in the supernatural has been eradicated. This time, from Luka’s point of view with never-before-seen content.
17-year-old Luka Williams has a secret. He sees things nobody else can see, feels things nobody else can feel, and dreams about the same girl every night. A girl in danger. A girl he must save. A girl who doesn’t exist.
Until one day, she does. Her family moves in next door—upending his world. Calling into question everything he thought he knew. Maybe he’s not crazy after all. Maybe the things he sees are as real as the girl from his dreams.
I know I’ve fallen off the social media grid without much to report or update in the world of publishing, but I have been working behind the scenes (granted, not as regularly or as efficiently as I’d like … darn pandemic!)
Since my last release, I’ve completed two YA manuscripts, both of which I’m very excited to share! If you want to receive updates on these (such as sneak peeks and release dates), please subscribe to my email list! I haven’t sent anything out in ages (legit cobwebs), but I do hope to have more specific information soon.
Also … I have some fun news!
I’ve been working on a Luka story! When it comes to The Gifting series, quite a few readers have reached out asking for more. So I decided to take a page out of Stephanie Meyers’ playbook and write The Gifting from Luka’s point of view. It’s been super fun revisiting these characters and this story world I had such a blast creating. If you’re wanting the latest info on this project, my email list is the place to get it!
