Double Cover Reveal: Ice and Embers: Steampunk Snow Queen

Monday, July 17, 2017



I'm very pleased to be taking part of a special collection this summer. My retelling if the Snow Queen fairy tale with steampunk elements is part of the Regency Rendezvous Collection. For 12 days, we Scarsdale Publishing is releasing a new Regency novel. Ice and Embers is set during the London Frost Fair of 1814. This novel is part of my Steampunk Fairy Tales Collection. All my steampunk works, including the Airship Racing Chronicles, exist in the same alternative world.

For this novel, I will have two covers. As part of the Regency Rendezvous Collection, my eBook cover has a distinctly Regency feel and fits perfectly with the other covers. Have a look:

The paperback and audiobook for this novel had the feel of the other books in my fairy tales collection. Sometimes next year the eBook will also carry this cover:

The paperback for this book is currently being formatted and will be available soon!


Novel Description


When actress Elyse McKenna fell in love with Lord John Waldegrave, she was prepared to keep their liaison secret. What she wasn’t ready for was how her newfound love would rock her relationship with her dearest friend, Doctor Kai Murray.


With the 1814 London Frost Fair in full swing, Elyse and her troupe at the Ice House Theatre find themselves at the heart of the excitement on the frozen Thames. But when an exotic ship captain, whose vessel is trapped in the ice, turns her attention to Kai, everything Elyse thought she knew about her feelings for her old friend gets flipped upside down.


While the Ice House Theatre’s production of A Midwinter Night’s Dream thrills the London crowd, Elyse’s life begins to take on a distinctly Shakespearean turn.
Elyse must find a way to discover the truth about the captain, Kai, John, and her own feelings if she hopes to escape the Thames with her heart intact.



Ice and Embers is a retelling of the classic Snow Queen fairy tale set in Regency London.



The novel is now available for preorder. I'll be posting the first chapter preview next week!

Cover Reveal: Curiouser and Curiouser in Dominion Rising

Tuesday, June 13, 2017


I'm really excited to share that I have a new series rolling out later this winter. My Steampunk Fairy Tales series will begin this summer with the release of Curiouser and Curiouser: Steampunk Alice in Wonderland and Ice and Embers: Steampunk Snow Queen. Curiouser and Curiouser will release initially as part of the Dominion Rising boxed set. It will be available on audiobook and in paperback as well. The novel will release as a single later this year, early next year. Ice and Embers will have a distinctly regency romance feel as it releases from Perfection publishing, a historical romance publisher. I have several more books in this series lined up. I have a specific newsletter created for my steampunk fairy tales. Click here if you'd like to join my Once Upon a Time list: SIGN UP FOR FAIRY TALE NEWS



Curiouser and Curiouser is currently available for pre-order as part of the Dominion Rising boxed set.



To save the Hatter, Alice must work with the one man she despises so much that she might still love him.


Alice thought she’d turned over a new leaf. No more working for Jabberwocky. No more making deals with the ruthless Queen of Hearts. No more hanging around The Mushroom with tinkers, tarts, scoundrels, and thieves in London's criminal underbelly. But she’d been bonkers to dream.

Hatter’s reckless behavior leads Alice back to the one person she never wanted to see again, Caterpillar. Pulled into Caterpillar's mad schemes, Alice must steal a very big diamond from a very royal lady. The heist is no problem for this Bandersnatch. But protecting her heart from the man she once loved? Impossible.

Sometimes love is mad.

Dominion Rising Reader Giveaway & Authors Interview

Tuesday, March 28, 2017


Okay, so I had to share two fun things! First, the authors of Dominion Rising have an EPIC reader giveaway underway. You are going to love it. Well, unless you don't want to win an ipad mini and 20+ paperbacks! The authors also put some fun interviews together for you. Here is the first one in which we introduce you to the protagonists in our tales.

Giveaway

Celebrate Dominion Rising and win an iPad Mini, over 20 PAPERBACK books, a Dominion Rising bonus content paperback, or custom Swag! All winners will receive a free copy of the full Dominion Rising Box Set!



Dominion Rising Authors Interview

We asked some of the authors of Dominion Rising to share a little about their upcoming releases. In this interview, we asked the authors to tell us about the protagonists of their Dominion Rising Novels:

Tell us about the protagonist of your Dominion Rising Novel:

Author: Rebecca Rode
Dominion Rising Title: Flicker
Ember is a gypsy on planet Earth. All she wants is to pay off her father's medical bills and avoiding a forced marriage. Getting kidnapped and sold to the empire wasn't exactly the plan.
*
Author: Melanie Karsak
Dominion Rising Title: Curiouser and Curiouser
My novel is a steampunk retelling of Alice in Wonderland. In my novel, Alice is an ex-thief who is trying to escape her former life in London’s seedy criminal underbelly. Unfortunately, when the Hatter gets himself in trouble, Alice is pulled back exactly where she doesn’t want to be—working a job for the Queen of Hearts with a man she despises so much that she might still love him.
*
Author: Tom Shutt
Dominion Rising Title:  Iron Tamer
Mal is a young, cursed boy who grows up in the isolated mountain town of Pointe, which has been disconnected from the rest of the Empire for at least a generation. When he accidentally gets the local "police" force, the Brigade, nearly killed by a raging forest spirit, Mal is forced to take the Walk—a one-way ticket to death in the caved-in mine shaft that once connected Pointe to civilization.

He makes it out alive, though, and soon discovers that he has an incredible gift—the ability to manipulate metals. And at the behest of an unlikely new friend, he starts on a journey to become an iron tamer.
Mal is a spirited, kind, and sometimes overly trusting young man who wears his heart on his sleeve and more than once gets the wool pulled over his eyes, but his dedication to his 
friends and belief in himself sees him through many dangers.
*
Authors: Erin St Pierre and Gwynn White
Dominion Rising Title: Reign of Bones and Embers
A young woman with something to prove, freedom to fight for, and a whole lot of sass.
*
Author: Daniel Arthur Smith
Abernathy "Abby" Squire is an Indiana Jones turned detective. He's forever young, due to anti-aging technology common in the future. But his youth is only aesthetic. Over the centuries he's been a university professor, an agent for the Homeland, and most recently a proprietor. He's uncomfortable with his role in the Plane Wars and is reluctant when called back to help with a case because many aspects remind him of his past.
*
Author: Tony Bertauski
Dominion Rising Title:  The Waking of Grey Grimm
There are three protagonists in The Waking of Grey Grimm. Figuring out who they are and where they are is the story arc. Each of them is in search of something deeper in life and the relationships that bind them together. In the end, they discover that reality is not confined by our five senses.
*
Author: Samuel Peralta
Dominion Rising Title: "Labyrinth of Steel"
The protagonist of any of my stories is you.
*
Author: Erin Hayes
Dominion Rising Title: Touching Infinity
Clementine is a cyborg, more machine than human, but she's dealing with an identity crisis of where she fits in. She's a master hacker, the leader of her space pirate crew. She doesn't have many scruples, but she'll put her life on the line to save her crew.
*
Author: Anthea Sharp
Dominion Rising Title: Star Compass
Diana Smythe is an orphan, a pickpocket... and a mathematical genius. My novel, Star Compass, follows her journey from the gutter to the stars and is set in a Victorian Spacepunk universe, where an eternally cloned Queen Victoria has ruled for centuries and the British Empire spans the galaxy.

Saturday, March 4, 2017


Things are about to get very CURIOUS around here! I'm really pleased to share the title of my work in the upcoming Dominion Rising boxed set. I've penned a steampunk Alice in Wonderland titled Curiouser and Curiouser. This fairy tale retelling will be one of a collection of steampunk fairy tales I'll have out later this year. I don't have a blurb yet, but expect a kick-butt Alice set in the same steampunk London as my Airship Racing Chronicles series. All my steampunk works will share the same world so you are very likely to see some familiar faces and overlap. Lots of Easter egg hunting for you! This book was enormous fun to write. I mean, it's Alice! The above banner has just a little glimpse at my cover which I'll reveal later on (along with the blurb). Curiouser and Curiouser will release on its own in the winter and will have an audiobook, but there will be a bit of a wait, just so you know. All the love is headed toward the boxed set as we chase those NYT letters again!
