Copper Cove!

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!

let me blog away with you

Sunday catchup is going to be short this week, for… (glances at pile of laundry) reasons. (peeks over at dish-filled sink) Work is progressing on my next book, and I’m hoping to have the first draft done by the end of August if not sooner. I’ll keep you updated. Until next time…well, I won’t leave you empty-handed.

this time I know we could blog it together

Sunday catchup, and we’ll open with another reminder: If you’ve enjoyed anything I’ve written, I would be grateful if you’d take a moment to write a review. Reviews really do help influence people as to whether or not they should buy a book, and the more the better. So, if you like the Monkey Queen books, the tales of Peavley Manor, or the Skyblade Saga, please drop by Amazon and/or Goodreads and let others know. Thanks! More after the cut. Continue reading

Skyblade’s Claim – coming June 27!

Take to the skies again! Skyblade’s Claim, the second novella in the Skyblade Saga, is coming to Amazon.com June 27!

Annabel Skyblade, notorious pirate captain, has a mystery on her hands: an enchanted piece of parchment she acquired while raiding a Svendaran airship. Victorie Brassfield, the Cerindel Navy’s top intelligence officer, found another one just like it in the pocket of a Svendaran agent.

Annabel and Victorie have a history. After coming together over a common goal, their unlikely friendship blossomed into a budding romance. But it’s been hard to maintain a relationship when their hearts take them in different directions – and put them on opposite sides.

Now they share a common quest once more. Can Annabel and Victorie uncover the mystery before them, through wild beer festivals, stately balls, and far-off-tropical islands, without letting their passion get in the way? Will this bring them closer together…or lead them to their bloody doom?

More after the cut!
