What story I’m currently working on:
Well, Taking Root is just flowing from my fingertips. I’m really adoring this book at the moment, and even more than the main characters themselves, I’m falling in love with the whole Dukas family. I really hope I get the opportunity to write their entire series. I just hit 34k, so I’m over the halfway point and heading towards a lot of fun scenes. As for Hypnotizing Beat, it’s coming more slowly, but it’s still moving along! I got to 3k and finished the first chapter, so I’m delving into Danica’s perspective next.
What I’m editing/marketing:
Shocking everyone, I’m waiting on a lot of things at the moment. Loose Id finally pulled my Philadelphia Coven Chronicles and Forged Alliances, so I’m hoping to find a home for them sooner rather than later. I sent a bunch of submissions out early in the month, so I’m crossing my fingers that responses will start arriving soon. I’m on the final edit for the fae novella for Legends of the Veil, which I’m realizing really needs a title. And if you haven’t checked out Of Tinkers and Technomancers yet, you have your chance! Gaslights and Graves went live last week!

Line of the week:
Adrian leaned back in his seat again and tossed the stack of envelopes off his lap. This talk had ripped all the scabs wide open and doused them in alcohol. And as much as his ears pounded and his chest ached like he was drowning, the first bit of cinnamon warmth whispered through his veins.
With Gaslights and Graves coming out today, we’re featuring some of the novellas featured in the boxset!
Title: Of Tinkers and Technomancers
Author: Katherine McIntyre
When technomancer Theo Whitfield’s sister goes missing, she’s forced to work alongside an arrogant prat she’s long despised, the tinker, Silas Kylock. Her sister nicked his clockwork doll, and she needs his help to track the stolen merchandise and by proxy, her sister. However, the more time they spend together, the more she sees Silas as the man she’d run through the streets of Islington with and not the insufferable gentleman he’s become.
Theo’s not the only one afflicted. Silas never forgot the loyal, stubborn woman whose temper he can’t help but spark, and as their search grows more dire, her dedication to her family inspires him to make sacrifices of his own. So when the hunt erupts into a deadly confrontation with the gangs of Islington, Theo and Silas aren’t just risking their hearts–their lives are on the line.
