This collection of short stories is the beginning of an adventure for me in many ways.
For one thing, I love writing steampunk adventures for feisty, strong heroines and I plan to continue doing so. I’m delighted to be able to include Evie, Phailin, and Cadence in this first anthology.
For another, I’ve been considering self-publishing–or indie–for quite some time and have launched the self-pub aspect of my hybrid career with this collection. It is important to me to maintain quality in all aspects of the production of this book from authoring and editing to cover design and layout. I hope readers of either the ebook format or the print format will appreciate the attention to detail I strove to adhere to with my editor(s), cover artist, and layout team.
This is the beginning, and I hope you will all enjoy the adventure!
I’ve got an Amazon giveaway running to celebrate the official release of Into the Aether. I hope you’ll enter and give my steampunk collection a try!
In Evie’s Gift, Evie travels to England with her brother to find a sponsor for her first season in London. She’s finding much more than intended, including an enemy submarine bent on destroying the airship carrying them across the ocean and a conspirator responsible for sabotaging her host’s mechanicals.
In A Swan in Siam, Agent John M. Alvey of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences searches for the source of a swan feather of peculiar properties in the court of the King of Siam and encounters both an assassin and a living legend.
Plus in the new, never before published Keeping Cadence, fiery Cadence is assigned as both gun expert and bodyguard when the senior crew of the Airship Vulpes is hired to transport precious cargo. Things never go as planned, but the two things Cadence can rely on like clockwork are her captain’s explosive temper and the opportunity for a good fight.
