It’s here! It’s finally here! I feel like I have been waiting forever for Dead Magic to finally be out, and now that it’s out in the world, I don’t know what to do with myself. It took about nine months to produce from start to finish, and it’s beyond rewarding to know it’s in my readers’ hands. It’s out for Kindle and in paperback.
Because release days are a special occasion, I’ve marked the rest of the series down, so if you haven’t read the Ingenious Mechanical Devices. Now is the time to catch up.
The Earl of Brass is FREE.
The Winter Garden is 99c
The Earl and the Artificer is 99c
and you can get Dead Magic here.
Around release dates, I get a lot of questions about how to help an author out. Here’s how:
- Share this post on social media
- Recommend my books
- If you’ve read my books, leave an honest review on Amazon or Goodreads or where ever.
As you can see, the entire Ingenious Mechanical Devices series is on sale this week from Monday (5/16) to Thursday (5/19).
I decided to mark everything down as a little congrats to all of the college/grad students finishing up this week and the professors who are finally finished with papers. You can get the whole set for less than $2. The links are below, and if you are able or would like to help an indie author out, please share the pics under the links on your social media accounts to help spread the word.
The Earl of Brass FREE
The Winter Garden FREE
“An Oxford Holiday” 99 cents
The Earl and the Artificer 99 cents
I have decided (now that I’m about halfway in) to announce that the first short companion story for my steampunk/historical fantasy series the Ingenious Mechanical Devices will be out by the end of the summer.
What is it?
The story will be roughly 5,000 words or so and will take place after the events of The Winter Garden (IMD #2). It will be a standalone, but obviously, it would make more sense if it was read along with the other Ingenious Mechanical Devices stories. The working title is “An Oxford Holiday,” the story revolves around Adam journeying to Oxford to visit Immanuel. Unfortunately, getting a little privacy and time together is more difficult than it seems. The story will be offered for free on all platforms when it is finished (Amazon may take a few days to catch up with the other ebook platforms).
Why do this?
It may seem odd for an author to post something so short and for free, but I’m thinking of this short story as a free sample, a bonus for being a loyal reader or an incentive for new readers to give my work a try. I also know that it will take me a while to finish writing The Earl and the Artificer, so by releasing a short story, I’ll hopefully keep my readers interested between the two books. Recently, I have been reading K. J. Charles’s A Charm of Magpies series, and one of the things I love about them is that she writes short stories to go along with her books. It’s a great little teaser between stories, and I devour them just as I do her full-length novels. It’ll just be a light, fun story, but it will hopefully add a bit to the series and give a hint as to what will happen in book four when Adam and Immanuel reappear.
