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.

Curiouser and Curiouser - Steampunk Alice in Wonderland coming in the Dominion Rising Boxed Set! Now available for pre-order on Amazon!

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!

Dominion Rising really has some great books under way. I'm really excited to read this set. Not only are all the books new, but guys, they are very high quality. The authors included in this box are USA Today, NYT, and award-winners...and just really good writers. This set is going to kick-ass. The cover got a new look. I like the steampunky arm, don't you?

Now, for the box details and where you can find it:

Where to Pre-Order a Copy:

I'm super excited to be in this new boxed set. It's an amazing collection and I think if you like steampunk, fantasy, and scifi, you are going to really be happy with this collection. I kinda had some fangirl moments where I discovered who was in this set with me. Epic!

And I'm really so excited to share my new collection with you. I will be finishing the Airship Racing Chronicles and the Celtic Blood Series this summer. Next year, I am on sabbatical for work so I'll be research and writing full time for a year. Cannot wait to get started!
