The working cover for Iron Sharpens Iron, designed by the lovliest of loveliesRachel Bostwick, was inspired by a blend of art deco and the rigid civilization Caileth was born into. Each corner symbol represents the main characters, and the central floral design is an artistic interpretation of a mountain laurel - the unassuming, yet poisonous flower the smugglers have christened themselves after. But more on chara...

Some exciting opportunities for Iron Sharpens Iron, my gaslamp fantasy that's been entered in World Anvil and Kyanite Publishing's contest! For those unfamiliar, World Anvil is a unique campaign managing platform where world builders, DM's, writers, artists, etc. can organize their lore, so the contest by nature encourages stories built off RP's. Which is so perfect, because I have been itching to w...

THE RUB: Three Star Island is a delightful historical romance that captivates readers with time travelling, tall ships, and a wee bit of pirate ween. Our sassy-frass heroine, Penny, is trapped in the Carolinas circa 1720’s. She’s already processed the shell shock by the time the story begins, and has hodge-podged a modest life for herself on the outskirts of a colonial town. While scavenging for supplies, she resc...

THE RUB: The Rose Queen is a gender-swapped retelling of Beauty and the Beast, a story that's been retold more times than petals have fallen off that cursed rose. Written in the style of the old fairy tales, the story bears a similar time-honored and otherworldly mysticism in which you know: you've initiated some fantastical endeavor just by cracking open that first page. Bu...

For the past several years, I've (unofficially) participated in NaNoWriMo's annual writing challenge. For those not familiar with how it works, the gist is to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. I say 'unofficially' because I tend to dedicate all my attention on one novel at a time - my method to ensuring I complete it so I don't end up with a laundry list of unfinished, neglected projects. And because I neither...

A Count of Measure : The Music of the Count of St. Germain

At first, this was simply going to be a playlist of the music that fueled my inspiration during the early drafts of writing A Peculiar Count in Time. And alright, why not throw that in while we're on the topic. But seeing as some of St. Germain's own compositions are on the list, it seems a waste to not at least mention that he was a respectable composer, e...

Good, Better, Best : The Alchemy Behind A Peculiar Count In Time

Writing about time travel is something I've avoided for a minute. As an authoress who often utilizes Victorian and steampunk elements, time travel seemed too expected, almost cliche. Perhaps, I thought, this was too on-the-nose for me, so - pass. Enter the Fairfield Scribes, and their upcoming publication, When To Now: A Time Travel Anthology. Oh dear...
