Cover Reveal: The Wolf Witch (IMD #6)

Can I get a drum roll, please? May I present the cover of book six of the Ingenious Mechanical Devices, The Wolf Witch.


After three months abroad, Emmeline Jardine has returned to England ready to start her life anew as a free woman. That is, until a suitor from her mother’s past arrives looking for her help, but the gentleman is more than he seems. He’s Emmeline’s father.

There’s one person Emmeline can turn to: Nadir Talbot. A writer, unrepentant decadent, and all around busybody, Nadir is everything Emmeline has been taught to avoid. But when she needs to escape her family’s past, she convinces Nadir to follow her to an estate deep in the wild of the woods.

When guests go missing and turn up savagely murdered, Emmeline, her new found family, and Nadir must join forces to stop an awakening evil with not only the power to destroy their lives but bring the empire to its knees.

I can’t wait to share this book with you. Emmeline is a… unique individual, and in The Wolf Witch, we come to know a different side of her as she discovers has family’s past and moved toward finding who she is. The question is how does Nadir Talbot factor into this? Why are they on their way to an estate in the woods? What does Emmeline’s father want? And of course, who is he?

The current estimate for The Wolf Witch’s release date is May if all goes well. I will keep you updated, and stay tuned for more tidbits and teasers in the coming months.

Writing Update

So I’ve been incredibly negligent with my blogging. Grad school started toward the end of January, and I’m still finding that balance between work and writing.

What I can say is that I have begun brain-storming and writing book 4 of the Ingenious Mechanical Devices series AND I have a title!

dead magic

The working title is Dead Magic, and I’m really hoping it doesn’t change because I quite like it.

The story will center around Emmeline Jardine, Immanuel Winter, Adam Fenice, and Nadir Talbot a few months after the events of The Earl and the Artificer.

While I can’t give too much away because it’s very subject to change at this point, I can say that the trial from book 3 doesn’t quite go the way Nadir plans, Immanuel is now working at the natural history museum, and Emmeline finds a mysterious book. The aesthetic is flowers growing through bones, moonlight breaking through fog, a museum at night.
