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,
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
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
And Sunday catchup is back, with this reminder: Copper Cove is coming Tuesday, September 26! My newest book is a steampunk fantasy novella with adventure, romance and a great deal of tea! You can read an extended preview here, and preorder it through Amazon! More after this image, and the cut.
And Sunday catchup is back! My apologies for missing last week. I had two things going on – finishing the latest draft of Copper Cove, and trying not to melt during the monster heat wave that California had going over the Labor Day weekend. Holy cats, was it hot. There are a few goodies after the cut, but first, this update: Copper Cove has been sent to two beta readers; one has finished and given some useful feedback, and the other should be done shortly. The cover designer is hard at work. With any luck, I’ll be able to announce a publication date sometime this week. Click for more! Continue reading
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.
