We interrupt the usual business-oriented side of this blog for a brief announcement:
It’s Doomsday! The first book of the Clockwork Empire has reached its official release, and The Doomsday Vault (by Steven Harper) is now in stores everywhere. Air pirates! Zombies! Mad scientists!
In a clockwork Britannia, Alice’s prospects are slim. At 21, her age and her unladylike interest in automatons have sealed her fate as an undesirable marriage prospect. But a devastating plague sends Alice off in a direction beyond the pale-towards a clandestine organization, mad inventors, life-altering secrets, and into the arms of an intrepid fiddle-playing airship pilot.
I’m kicking off the fun with a blog tour. Hop aboard the airship and follow me around the Internet in 14 days! I’ll be doing guest posts and interviews all over the place. Here’s the schedule:
