The Airship Also Rises Audio Book is Live!

katherinemcintyre28129

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.

What story I’m currently working on:

Thus far, I’ve been really good at staying true to my promises! The fae novella IS finished and out with beta readers! It ended at around 21k, so I just blasted through the rest of it. Of course though, that leaves this big open hole of WHAT DO I WRITE NEXT? However, I think Cupid’s Cafe answered that question, as I started putting the first couple lines down on Lex and Tessa’s story.

What I’m editing/marketing: TOO MUCH. So, this week, my editor actually got the Airship edits back to me AND I turned them back around. OMG. So of course, I’m continuing to stampede through the Wanderers edits as well AND MIGHT EVEN HAVE THEM FINISHED BY NEXT WEEK. Ahhhhh. But that’s not all, folks. My young adult fairytale, A Reflection of Ice came out on Tuesday, huzzah huzzah. And then literally a day later, Corsets and Cogs hit the e-shelves!!!! Now is definitely the time to buy, as it’s only going to stay 99 cents for a week! And of course, the other steampunk boxset I’m in, Gaslights and Graves, is available for pre-order!

Teaser of the week:

Candace brandished a pint glass at the ready. Ale could soothe most of these ruffians, and she_d become adept at taming tempers.(1)

Line of the week:

Some days, Tessa managed to keep the flames to a minimum, but others, that inferno raged out of control. Today classified as grade A dumpster fire with an extra splash of gasoline.

What story I’m currently working on:

I’m back to a normal pace! Which means I’ll probably be able to finish this fae story by next week! After hitting the wall for so long with the other concept, this one is a cork popped free and I’m just flowing with it. I love paranormal romance, and this is a sweet, breezy one in a similar vein to By the Sea. I’m now at 9k on this story, and while the minimum for the anthology is 15k, I’m thinking I’ll probably end up at 20k. This is the fae story for the Legends of the Veil anthology that is coming out in August!

What I’m editing/marketing: Well, shit. A Reflection of Ice is coming out on March 27th, and it’s already available for pre-order! I’m going to make a ballsy promise with the Airship edits, that I’ll be finished them by the time I report in next week and have them sent to the editor. I’m close though. In the final 20 pages for the vibrancy edits I do, and a couple chapters in already for the grammatical and read aloud edits. If you’re looking for more fun, Gaslights and Graves is available for pre-order! And it’s sales galore this week, with both A Tale of Two Airships and Snatched available for only 99 cents!

Line of the week:

She reminded him of the lake itself or a waterfall come to life, the way the liveliness just poured out of her, how it sparkled in the sun.

What story I’m currently working on: Hit 60k on Airship this week, so I’m getting back into it! Just the final 6 or 7 chapters to write! The moment January 1st hit, my mojo returned, and I’m back to writing every day. I just wrote a super big scene, so now it’s action, action, action from here on out. I also made it 1k into a contemporary romance I’m working on for funsies, no pressure. It’s loosely based on a manuscript I wrote a decade ago, and should be a fun friends to lovers romance.

What I’m editing/marketing:Ho boy. So, I came into this new year swinging. I’m requerying Chasing Fate, just sent Outlier Heir back to the agent who requested an R&R, and I’m still waiting to hear from 5 different publishers about Captivating Melody. If those all end in rejection, I have a couple other places I want to submit to. On top of that, I’m spending all of today giving A Reflection of Ice some love, because I got my edits in! This story is going to be AMAZING.

Love was like a cup of coffee—best served scalding, because that bitch will burn you every time.

Some Airship Love!

Currently, I’m working on the final Take to the Skies book, The Airship Also Rises, but I’m also working on going through the files for A Tale of Two Airships! The first book, An Airship Named Desire is already available in audio book, and it’s SO GOOD, guys. It’s inspirational to spend all of this time in the universe while I’m writing the final book, so I can really honor the whole cycle, from beginning to end as I prepare to close out this series.

The hope is to finish writing The Airship Also Rises by December/January, so I can get edits jamming for this book. The plan is for it to come out August 17th, 2018!

Take to the Skies is going to be one unforgettable trilogy, and I’m already getting all the feels while writing this ending.
