Friday Update: Blood and Clockwork + Katey Stuff

January 22, 2016

Hello! Hope everyone enjoyed the Stronger, Better, Faster, More blogging frenzy! Carlin and I had a great time, and thanks to everyone who dropped in to enter our giveaway. The winners have been contacted and if they don't have their prizes yet, they will shortly. ♥

For my next trick, I'm super proud and excited to be a part of Less Than Three's upcoming Solitary Travelers collection of novels and novellas. Check out this gorgeous cover:

Cover by Natasha Snow

Alistair Click set out to lay to rest the superstitious fears about the Mad Prince's clockwork tower. If that meant he might bring the ghost city of Avalonia back to economic life, connecting the western kingdoms once again, so much the better. So what if no adventurer who'd entered the tower in the last century of desolation had ever re-emerged? They didn't have his skill and wit. He could do better.

The tower turns out to be far more than Alistair expected, however. Not only are there clockwork puzzles to open every door, but one of them drops a boy from a strange world into his lap—figuratively speaking, if only just. Marco Murphy was just gaming in his New Jersey apartment, and now he's stuck in what feels like a never ending LARP nightmare.

The deeper they delve into the Mad Prince's tower, the darker the secrets they uncover. They're not entirely sure they'll ever be able to get out again, either. It'll take all Marco's charm and Alistair's cleverness, plus the strange bond growing between them, to get them out together... and alive.

Yyyyyeah, clockwork fun... and freakiness,  but hey. Excerpts and stuff coming soon, and the book happens in march. For now, if you pre-order there's a discount ;)

And in closing, I'm finally getting my horrible spine fixed up today. That means I'll be slow on communication for the next few weeks, unfortunately, but I will be around. Just don't sweat it if I take a few days to get with the program. ♥

SBFM Blog Tour and Giveaway + cuties

January 8, 2016

Well the Stronger, Better, Faster, More blog tour ends today. Here's the rundown if you missed out on some of the stuff:

I definitely recommend taking a look at Carlin's post on creating Beau's backstory and the choices we made for him, as it's a very meaningful one. Also it was nice to get to talk about one aspect of writing a desi character and using Diwali in the story, one of my fave holidays.

A comment on any of them will get you two entries in our giveaway, too, so don't forget. You could buy BOOKS with that prize! HUGE :D Meanwhile, please enjoy these cuties....
