The Missing Mallard (Or, “Duck, Macalley! Duck!”) – out now!

The time is here to unravel the mystery, as the feathers fly and the villains gather! “The Missing Mallard (Or, ‘Duck, Macalley! Duck!’)”, the new Peavley Manor novelette, is now available at Amazon and other e-book stores! Just 99 cents US/CA/AU! Check for links below the cut, or search your favorite store for “Missing Mallard”!

One would think that an auction of duck paraphernalia would not create that much excitement. Unfortunately for Alice Peavley and her valet Macalley, one of the items in the auction, a golden duck figurine, is attracting far too much attention…especially from a number of villains and scoundrels. Food fights, pixie sorceresses, mad scientists, adorable yet destructive automatons – can Alice and Macalley prevail, or has doom come to Darbyfield?

Read on after the cut for buying links and a sneak preview of “The Missing Mallard”! Continue reading

Going Wide IV: Redblade…and thanks!

Today is the day that Redblade, the fifth Monkey Queen book, goes wide! You can now get it through Kobo, iTunes, and DriveThruFiction! It should be available shortly on Barnes & Noble, for your Nook, and other webstores worldwide. And you can still buy Redblade, and all the other Monkey Queen books, through Amazon!

Today is also a special day for me. If you don’t know the story: On March 16, 2013, I found the material I had written for a comic book series that never took off and, after reviewing it, realized it could work as a book. The next day, three years ago today, I typed these words into my tablet: “It was another crappy Friday for Beth McGill.” Three years and five books later I’m still writing, with two books and a secret project in progress, and still having the time of my life.

Thank you to you – the fans, the readers, the people who have taken a time to drop me a line or leave a comment or review, the people who have encouraged and supported me. Special thanks, first and foremost, to Willow! And also to Calomiel, Shei Darksbane, Kate Danley, Meri Amber, the crew at KBoards, Stan Sakai, Studio Foglio, Cora and Jessica at the Speculative Fiction Showcase, the enigmatic “M”, everyone else I may have overlooked…and of course to you!

Stay tuned! Don’t touch that dial! 2016 is still going to be amazing for all us! And thanks again.

Going Wide II: iTunes and more!
