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 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.
Today’s Sunday catchup will be brief, due to a badly-timed power outage. But I do have an announcement, for those who missed it during Friday’s Tea Party: Work is underway on the second Peavley Manor story! It looks like it’ll be another novelette, and the title is… “The Thorn Harbour Road Rally (Or, Macalley Takes The Wheel)”! Look for it sometime in May!
And If you missed Madame Askew’s Tea Party last Friday, you can watch it on Facebook. The delightful, vivacious Madame discussed tea, dances, Scotland, a naughty cat, more tea…and “Book Fair Frenzy”! I cannot thank Madame Askew enough for her time and her kind words. Don’t forget – the good Madame and/or other members of the Temporal Entourage host a Tea Party every Friday night, so do drop by!
More next Sunday as always, Assuming the lights stay on, that is.
I promised an announcement for post #500 on this blog, and I’ll lead off with that. I’ve started writing the second book in the Skyblade Saga…Skyblade’s Claim! If everything lines up right, it’ll be coming out on June 1, along with other books in the next wave of Plundered Chronicles stories! If for some reason you missed the first book in this series, Skyblade’s Gambit, head over to Amazon’s US store to check it out.
More after the cut! Continue reading
Today is the day! ARRRR! Buckle your swash and prepare to set sail! Skyblade’s Gambit, my new novella, is now available! Click here to get the first chapter of The Skyblade Saga! Can a pirate and a Navy officer rescue stolen treasure…while falling for each other? Find out now!
An important note: Due to restrictions of the Kindle Worlds program, Skyblade’s Gambit is only available through the U.S. Amazon store. You should be able to buy the ebook at that link even if you’re outside the U.S., but if you have any issues, contact me and I’ll see what I can do.
The last four weeks, I’ve been working on and hinting at a secret project. At last, I’ve gotten the all-clear to announce it, so here goes…
Coming December 1, an all-new novella, with new characters and adventures…
Captain Annabel Skyblade commands the Peregrine, the most feared pirate airship to sail the skies of Aldarre, plundering the rich and powerful. The rulers of the sky realms have had enough of her, and the kingdom of Cerindel has enlisted top Navy intelligence agent Victorie Brassfeld to capture the pirate, using a lure too strong to resist – a valuable, beautiful sapphire amulet.
But the amulet hides a great secret, and when it is stolen by sinister forces, Annabel and Victorie must join together to retrieve it. And as they face danger and adventure, they also have to face their feelings for each other, feelings they have never had before, when they discover…
Hearts can be stolen too.
I was honored to be asked to be part of this project – Skyblade’s Gambit is part of The Plundered Chronicles, the very first LGBT-themed Kindle Worlds, with stories inspired by the novels of Alex Westmore. My fellow writers and I are taking things in new directions, with adventure, romance, time travel, steampunk, dystopia…and airship pirates!
(Note that as a Kindle Worlds story, Skyblade’s Gambit will only be available through Amazon, and only as an ebook.)
There’ll be official previews and much coming up over the next few days, so stay tuned! I have a load of fun writing Skyblade’s Gambit, and I hope you have fun reading it…and that you’ll want more of Annabel and Victorie!
Starting Sunday with an announcement: For the next few weeks, posting on this blog and other social media will be significantly less than usual, mostly likely just a Sunday catchup post every week. A secret project is involved, but I can’t say more than that for the time being, and there is a deadline that needs to be met. When I can say more, I will, and I think it’ll be worth the wait. More after the cut, including paperback news! Continue reading
