Sunday catchup is late, I know, but that’s because…we have first draft sign! The first draft of Copper Cove is done! Review and rewriting will come shortly, but before long, the book should be ready to go!
So, things are a bit short this week, but I wanted to mention that the people of Houston and the Texas Gulf Coast could use your help after Hurricane Harvey. The crowdfunding website Global Giving has set up a donation page to collect funds to assist area charities with both short-term and long-term needs. Please donate here, or to your other charity of choice. Thanks.

Sunday catchup, full steam ahead! Work is continuing on Copper Cove, and though we don’t have First Draft Sign yet, that should only be a day or two away. I’ll keep you posted. After the cut: Where you can find me (or, places to avoid in the near future). Continue reading →

Sunday catchup, and again it’s going to be light, between working on Copper Cove and the fact that some of my future plans are still being finalized. I did want to let you know that later today, the ever-delightful Madame Askew will be doing Facebook Live videos from San Diego’s Steampunk Day At The Library! Click here for more info on the event, and here for Madame Askew’s Facebook page, where you can sign up to be updated whenever she and/or the Grand Arbiter go live!
This coming Tuesday will be a red-letter day for nerd music fans, as it’s the official release day for Love Problems by the Doubleclicks and Trust Issues by the PDX Broadsides! I’ll try to have reviews for both soon, but no promises.
And another one of nerd music’s bright lights, Meri Amber, is now doing regular live shows on Twitch! Follow her there to get updates as to when she’s on, or check her Twitter timeline.
And with that, tea and writing call. More later.

Sunday catchup is taking a week off, as I realized that is post #550 on the Monkey Queen Books blog (as counted on its original home on Blogger). I enjoy doing special things for anniversary posts, so I’m using this one to formally announce my next book, a steampunk fantasy.
Coming this fall: Copper Cove!
In Copper Cove, city of marvels powered by magic and steam, being a renegade crafter is no easy task. Working past midnight to make ends meet, difficult clients, tough conditions, guild enforcers…all in all, just another day for the talented, plucky Tabitha Miles.
Her latest commission seems like just another job at first…but then Tabitha meets newspaper reporter Sophie Haverford and falls into a web of conspiracy and murder. Can Tabitha unravel the mystery, prevent a disaster, and win Sophie’s heart in time for tea?
I can’t give an exact publication date, as writing is still in progress, but if all works out, it’ll be out on a familiar date. It’ll be available on all my usual platforms (not just Amazon), and there will be a paperback edition.
After the cut: Two brief excerpts!
