Ten Thousand Steam Heated Bedeviled Black Dresses

So after months of constantly struggling to get back on my feet, things are starting to look up. I have a ton of exciting projects, trips, anthologies and fun things coming up. I'll cut to the chase.

The Black Dress
I'm submitting "The Black Dress" to the Imagicopter Steampunk vs. Magic anthology. This story is a much more action packed take on the Ipswich Witch Trial.

Ten Thousand Years
"Ten Thousand Years" is my contribution to the Echelon Press steampunk anthology "Her Majesty's Mysterious Conveyance" and has a projected release date of October of this year. (It has a rad cover too!)

My steampunk/horror short "Bedeviled" will be in Dreams of Steam II (Kerlak Enterprises)

Thomas Riley II
I'm still working on Thomas Riley II and I only have a working title for it but I have received some preliminary cover art from the amazing Will Routon. I can't quite show you yet... not that it isn't amazing but I don't think it's legal to show without every one's permission.

Dragon Con
It looks like the amazing Elizabeth Darvill and I will be attending Dragon Con in Atlanta, GA this year and we are super excited!

Steam HeatSpeaking of the Amazing, gorgeous and super talented Elizabeth Darvill, she just received her cover art for her first Harlequin book "Steam Heat" that is also due out in October. Here's the blurb:
In a world of speed steamers, poisoned air and soulless paranormal beings, two people hold the fate of millions in their hands—and their bodies…. As a half-succubus, Angel needs energy from sex to live. The temporary fulfillment she gets from strangers is nothing compared to the erotic encounters in her linked dreams with Ian, the man whose soul she shares. Lately the dreams have become more intense and intoxicating, which can mean only one thing: she and Ian are dying, just like the magical crystal that purifies the city’s air. Only by making love in person and joining their split soul can they heal both themselves and the crystal. Yet despite Ian’s amazing sexual prowess, Angel doesn’t want to give up her other lovers, like sassy steam engineer Jezebel. Can they resolve their differences and continue sharing a bed to save themselves—and the world?

So very excited! My steampunk/horror short, "Bedeviled" will be in the new Dreams of Steam II "Of Bolts and Brass" anthology published by Kerlak Enterprises. I'm not sure when this will come out but last year they had it out by Dragon Con.

Bedeviled follows failing and drug addicted inventor Joshua Hardwick as he returns to his laboratory following a murder he just commited. Joshua speaks to a self proclaimed demon who calls himself Bartleby Green and seems to have control over the poor inventor. When Bartleby reveals his brutal plan to Joshua, he attempts to take control and alter his destiny by the most extreme action available.

I wrote Bedeviled based on my own personal demon who I also call Bartleby Green. Really Bartleby is more of a manefestation of Murphy's Law and all things life throws at me but in Bedeviled you get a little inside look at the demon (Both fictional and real) and his personality. Basically, it's a steampunk/demonic styled look at the Jack the Ripper killings. (You'll see how that fits in.)
