The Airship Also Rises is now available in audio book, narrated by Cari Scholtens!

The crew of the Desire returns for one final, thrilling adventure.

Ever since Bea and the crew stole that box from the British Merchant ship, they’ve been drowning under enemies: the Brits, the Morlocks, and the man who started it all – their ex-employer. However, Bea finally tracks him down and prepares for one final fight against the man who made their life hell.

He’s got superior numbers and more weapons and wealth than she could dream up, while she’s got a threadbare crew running on grit and dreams alone. The crew of the Desire doesn’t stand a chance. But Bea’s spent a lifetime defying the odds, and she and the crew will risk it all – their livelihood, their ship, and their lives for the chance to fly the skies free once more.

Secrets will unravel, and loyalties will be tested in the smoking conclusion of the Take to the Skies series.

Bea and the crew of the Desire are back, and there’s one fierce storm brewing on the horizon. When Isabella’s old clan delivers a letter that sends their crewmate into a funk, Bea’s suspicious. However, when they’re intercepted by gypsies on the way to their meetup for the next smuggling job, her suspicions switch to pissed off.

Thanks for being awesome.

Grab a copy of the first Take to the Skies book for only 99 cents!

Airships, sky-pirates, smugglers, and soldiers…An Airship Named Desire will take you for a thrilling ride.

Ever since their last botched smuggling job, First Mate Bea and the crew of her airship can barely afford fuel, let alone a barrel of grog. So when a gentleman from Old Germany offers them a fortune to steal a locked box from a British merchant airship, they jump on the opportunity. However, their employer forgot to mention the box’s military escort and the Morlock mercenaries who would slit throats to get their hands on it. Oh, and if made public, the contents could engulf Europe in another devastating war.

Stealing the box was the easy part. Now, with a target on their back and some of the toughest characters in the skies after them, if the crew of the Desire doesn’t polish their pistols and prepare for a hell of a fight, they’ll end up worse than grounded. After all, everyone from the Brits to the Morlocks will kill for the contents of that box, and no one survives an airship crash.

The Journey of the Take to the Skies Trilogy

panoramic-3049543_1920

Today I want to talk about journeys.

Six years ago to the date, my first book was published: An Airship Named Desire, through Hazardous Press. Back then, I had submitted it around to the big leagues with no luck and hadn’t even considered smaller presses, until I ended up giving it a try. An Airship Named Desire got picked up, and funny enough, that choice paved the way for me becoming a romance author. I was determined to write scifi/fantasy until my fingers bled, but when my publisher mentioned they were looking for paranormal romance submissions if I had any, I decided to give it a shot. …that ended up becoming By the Sea, which was published by Decadent Publishing two years later.

Life is weird and unpredictable that way. You never know where the path will lead you. And over those years, I dealt with a couple publishers closing, including Hazardous Press, which gave me the option to continue the series on my own. I continued working with other romance publishers and found myself writing more and more in the genre, completely falling in love with it. But a part of my heart will always belong to Bea and her ragtag crew of misfits aboard the Desire.

Their journey has taken me from never-before-published, to next year when I’ll have reached twenty books out. Six years, an explosive amount of growth, and a whole lot of memories and lessons along the way. When it came to writing/publishing, I took Bea’s approach the entire way. I’ve submitted even when I’m terrified, I’ve collected so many rejections I’ve drowned in them, I’ve gotten so, so close to goals I’ve only dreamed of just to plummet to the ground. Yet, I’ve continued to get back up. I’ve continued to slam my head against that wall until one day I’ll break through the damned thing. Bea and her crew taught me a little about resilience back then, and I’ve carried that lesson with me the entire way.

So I seriously hope you enjoy this final entry into the Take to the Skies trilogy, because I adored writing this series. However, even though it’s the end to Bea and her crew’s tales, I have so very many stories to share with you, and I hope you’ll stick with me for the adventure.
