Yes, I’m still alive! I’ve been super busy with grad school and the huge amount of work due at the end of the semester. Now, I’m free! Still waiting on one of my grades, but I’m done with classes for a month, which means I’m back to author business.
Well, I’m back into author business full-throttle. The cover for The Earl and the Artificer is done. Behold!
I finished the book a few days ago, so now all that’s left is some final editing and proofing. If you’re interested in pre-ordering The Earl and the Artificer, you can do so here for 99 cents (the price will jump after publication). It will be released January 30th!
Here is the blurb:
What mysteries lay buried beneath weeds and dust?
Following their wedding, Eilian and Hadley Sorrell journey to Brasshurst Hall, his family’s abandoned ancestral home. As Eilian struggles to reconcile his new roles as husband and earl, he finds the house and the surrounding town of Folkesbury are not as they first appear.
Behind a mask of good manners and gentle breeding lurks a darker side of Folkesbury. As the Sorrells struggle to fit in with the village’s genteel society, they find their new friends are at the mercy of Randall Nash, a man who collects secrets.
Soon, Eilian and Hadley become entangled in a web of murder, theft, and intrigue that they may never escape, with the manor at the heart of it all. Something long thought lost and buried within Brasshurst’s history has been found—something worth killing for.
Over the coming weeks, I will be posting sniplets from the story and more info about what you will find within the pages of The Earl and the Artficier.
Have a Merry Christmas and a happy holidays, everyone!
