What story I’m currently working on: Well, the fantasy heist picked up steam. I am going to attempt the crazy and try to finish it before the end of October…we shall see…I polevaulted ahead to 40k this week, almost at the halfway point, so it just might be doable. I had an aggressive start, which was awesome, and ideally, I’d like to finish it so I can switch gears to The Airship Also Rises come November! (steampunk pun, hee!)

What I’m editing/marketing: Forged Alliances came out two weeks ago, but already I’m switching focus to the release coming up IN two weeks! Captured Memories is now available for pre-order here! Beyond that, you’ll have Of Tinkers and Technomancers and A Reflection of Ice to look forward to in the beginning of 2018, and I’m not stopping for a heartbeat. Gotta keep on, keepin on. I’ve begun diving into edits for Forged Decisions, and I have a good idea of where I want to go with that, so I’m excited to push them through. My hope is that Forged Decisions will be submission ready by the end of November!

Teaser of the week:

Lyra had been born in the cold, and in the stark of winter she thrived.

Line of the week:

How wrong she had been. The girl who stood before her was the same jagged glass personality, quick for a response and too blunt for her own good, but Weavers bless, she had a devoted heart that hadn’t changed. Once Fiona Blackwater got her talons into you, the woman would sail straight through a storm, torch a building, or even thrash the bitch who ran the serving quarters in retribution. Even when she’d gotten whipped out in the yard afterwards.
