Upcoming (Online) Appearances in September

Hey everybody! Just a quick announcement that interviews and guest posts by yours truly will be hitting the web in the next couple of weeks. Here’s the schedule for where I’ll be starting on Monday, September 10.

On Monday I will be featured on Jay Noel’s website.

On Tuesday I have an interview going up at Lyndi Alexander’s website.

Wednesday finds me visiting James Peercy.

On Thursday I shall stop by Literary Lunes Publications.

On Friday there will be a guest post by me about standalone fantasy novels vs those in a series on Tricia Ballad’s site.

And finally, on Saturday there will be an interview with me on the website of one Blaine Pardoe.

So those are all the places I’m going to be (well my words at least) starting in two weeks. Be sure to check them out. And be sure to visit my site during that time because I’ll be hosting a selection of authors from Hydra Publications.

 

Official Cover Art for Steampunk Novel “The Exile’s Violin”

I teased it and hinted at it over the past couple of days, but now it’s finally here. Here is the official final cover art for my debut steampunk fantasy novel, The Exile’s Violin. I’m incredibly happy with the cover. What do you guys think? Does it capture that steampunk feel?

I love how the cover art features a very steampunk airship/battleship. It’s actually based on one of my very, very rough sketches. I also love how Enggar was able to capture the “look” of main character, Jacquie Renairre. And now for a quick blurb about the novel itself:

Why hire mercenaries to kill an innocent family just to obtain one little key? That question haunts Jacquie Renairre for six years as she hunts down the people responsible for murdering her parents.

Not even accepting an assignment to investigate a conspiracy that aims to start a war can keep her from searching for the key. Armed with her father’s guns and socialite Clay Baneport, she continues her quest for answers abroad.

With the world edging closer to disaster, Jacquie is running out of time to figure out how the war, the key, and ancient legend are intertwined. The fate of the world hinges on her ability to unravel both mysteries before it’s too late.

Look for The Exile’s Violin on Amazon in ebook and trade paperback later next month. For now, check back here for more details and be sure to stop by Hydra Publications and check out all their great titles.

The Exile’s Violin Cover Art

As part of Steampunk Sundays (a thing I just invented), I’m sharing the cover art for my debut novel, The Exile’s Violin. The font for the title and stuff hasn’t been decided, but the artwork is done. I think it looks great! It really captures the steampunk nature of the book, and I think Enggar did a great job with the two main characters.

What do you guys think? Is it steamy and punky enough? Expect more info about The Exile’s Violin soon. The book will be released in September from Hydra Publications.
