Meet Lily Stargazer, "Chasing the Star Garden" Blurb

I was very happy to release the title of my steampunk novel, "Chasing the Star Garden" a couple of weeks ago. As a Waiting on Wendesday special, I am excited to reveal the name of my protagonist and to provide you with the "unofficial" book blurb!

Are you ready to meet the girl behind the goggles? 

Concept artwork to help capture the feel. Cover reveal coming October 29th

 I am excited to introduce Lily Stargazer
airship racer, opium addict, and the loveable mess of
a heroine in my new steampunk series. 

What's the new novel about? Well, I think "Chasing the Star Garden" was best describe by a beta reader as . . .

 Sex, drugs, and airships!

But here is the blurb for the new novel:

Chasing the Star Garden

The Airship Racing Chronicles I

Airship racer Lily Stargazer is having a bad day. She just lost the London leg of the 1823 Airship Grand Prix. To top it off, a harlequin being chased by constables shoves a kaleidoscope down her pants, tells her to fly to Venice, then throws himself from her airship tower. What’s a girl to do? For Lily, the answer is easy: drink absinthe and smoke opium. Lord Byron, Lily’s lover, encourages a reluctant Lily to make the trip to Venice. Lily soon finds herself at the heart of an ancient mystery which has her chasing the stars, unraveling her past, and falling in love along the way.
