Thanks for coming by! I hope you find something here to enjoy!
Sunday catchup ahead, and since it’s almost time for holiday shopping to begin, I’ll remind you that ebooks make great gifts. Even mine. [grins] More after the cut! Continue reading
Helloooo Sunday Catchup! This exchange may just have been written for the upcoming Peavley Manor novelette, “The Missing Mallard (Or ‘Duck, Macalley! Duck!)”:
Macalley raised an eyebrow. “You’re not worried that you might actually have to find a space to display that duck, madame?”
“Not at all, Macalley. I never win these raffles,” I said with a grin as I started the motorcar.
Heh heh heh,
More after the cut!
Sunday catchup, and did you know that today is National Redhead Day? Here’s a quick story: In Copper Cove, I never specified Tabitha Miles’ hair color, but I always saw her as a blonde. However, when Shei Darksbane was preparing the book cover, she found a stock image with a ginger model and pleaded with me not to change the hair color. I gave in. More after the cut (and a reminder that Copper Cove is available now at Amazon)!
It’s Sunday, and here’s a bit of overdue catchup: The first two Peavley Manor novelettes, “Book Fair Frenzy (Or, Macalley Turns The Page)” and “The Thorn Harbour Road Rally (Or, Macalley Takes The Wheel)” are now available on iTunes, Kobo and Barnes & Noble (for your Nook) as well as Amazon! Search your store of choice for e-books by “Robert Dahlen”! You can still read “Book Fair Frenzy” for free here, and you can get your e-book of “Thorn Harbour Road Rally” for free by subscribing to my mailing list, but you can also show your support for what I do by buying one of my e-books or gifting one to a friend! More after the cut. Continue reading
Sunday catchup, and I’ll start with this reminder I post from time to time: If you’ve enjoyed Copper Cove, or any of my other stories, would you be so kind as to leave a review somewhere? Reviews do help people decide if a book is for them, and increase its visibility. They’re one easy way to support any author whose work you enjoy, not just me. So, head over to Amazon, Goodreads, or your social media of choice and spread the word. Many thanks! More after the cut. Continue reading
Welcome to Willow Wednesdays! Featuring art by Willow, the cover artist for the Monkey Queen series, with her kind permission! Read on after the cut for more! Continue reading
Sunday catchup! I’m back from Gaslight Expo 2017, rested and revved up for further writing and steampunk adventures! (Sorry about missing last week. The tea dueling started at a rather early hour on Sunday.) There’ll be a quick wrap up, and other things, after the cut, but this announcement first for those who might have missed it on social media:
Coming later this fall – the new Peavley Manor novelette, “The Missing Mallard (Or Duck, Macalley! Duck!)” The feathers will fly when Alice and Macalley get mixed up in a crazy yet sinister scheme! Stay tuned for more! Continue reading
Sunday catchup time, and there’s news to report: Copper Cove is now available at iTunes, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and more! Find buying links after the cut! Continue reading
It’s here! Copper Cove, my new novella, is now available on Amazon! It’s time to meet Tabitha Miles! If you haven’t read the extended preview yet, click here!
(I should have posted this on Tuesday, I know. I was busy moving bookshelves and cleaning up so the windows in my apartment could be replaced. Real life. Time to escape that for a bit!)
There’s been a snag or two in getting Copper Cove up at other ebook sellers and in paperback, but we’re working hard on that. With any luck, we’ll have news on that soon.
If you’ve already read and enjoyed Copper Cove, might I ask that you leave a review on Amazon and Goodreads? Reviews do help influence people who might be on the fence about buying an ebook, especially in a crowded market, and getting a few for Copper Cove could go a long way towards bringing in new readers. Don’t feel obligated to do so, but I’d be grateful if you did. Either way, thank you for your support!
