The Coffee Legacy is out!


After doing so much work on the re-release, The Coffee Legacy is finally out! Until Tuesday evening it’s available on Amazon for 99c!


The book got a bit of a do-over, the chapters are now illustrated with the coffee pictures and you can find out more about the world of Wiener Blut in the back. The book is still on Podiobooks under the old name, but that’ll be fixed soon as well. I will hold off with the paperback version for a while and start writing on the sequel.

The Coffee Legacy

Here it is, the new title and the new cover:


A while ago, I pulled both the published eBook and paperback of Wiener Blut from the internet. The reason was that I wanted to relaunch it, with a new name – mine as well as the book’s – and a new cover. Although the Podiobooks version is still online, all the rest got a major redo.

The title Wiener Blut now belongs to the series – yes there will be at least one more book in the universe. I am working on the outline and have already a few words written on it.

The eBook versions are finished and also have a release date: April 1st, 2013.

There is an event on Facebook as well as Goodreads you can join or you just follow what’s happening on Twitter.

Wiener Blut relaunch


I have been contemplating this for a while, and I decided it was time to relaunch my book, Wiener Blut, in order to be able to move forward with the series. There will be some re-branding going on and new eBook and paperback versions.

Wiener Blut Book 1 will get a new name and the series as a whole will be called Wiener Blut. With a new name, a new cover will be necessary so I will re-launch all the different versions of the book. Until all the new versions are online, Wiener Blut will not be available as eBook or paperback. The podcast is still up and running if you want to listen to it in the meantime.

All of this work serves the preparation for Book 2 in the series, for which I’m already in the planning stages. I will post here about the progress of the relaunch and the new book as well as talk about it on my Twitter stream and on the series’ Facebook page.

Wiener Blut reading on June 16

I am happy to announce that I will give a reading of Wiener Blut on

June 16 at 7.30 PM (local time)

at Shakespeare & Company in Vienna

Here is the official announcement from the bookshop:
“On Thursday 16th June 19.30 at Shakespeare & Company

An old Cafè, an even older legend and a new threat: On Bloomsday, Katharina Maimer will read from her first novel “Wiener-Blut”, set within the traditional Viennese cafe culture. “Wiener-Blut” is the story of cafè owner Isabelle Schindler-Krug and her role in a struggle for power that stretches back for centuries. As she tells her sons the legend behind coffee and Vienna, it becomes clear that one such legend is still in the making, with her own family caught right in the middle.

Katharina Maimer lives in Vienna and divides her time between the law, writing and podcasting. While writing her book in English she consumed a great deal of coffee.”
