Army of Brass E-book Available for Pre-order!

Last year I participated in an amazing collaborative writing opportunity. I was one of many authors who co-wrote a steampunk novel chapter by chapter. We signed up to write a certain number of chapters, which we were then assigned randomly. Each week two or three authors would take up where the book had left off and write the chapter and the editors picked one from the group. I have two chapters in the final product, which looks to be amazing.

Said project, Army of Brass, is now available for pre-order for only 99 cents! Amazon counts pre-orders as first day sales, so each order helps us move up in Bezos’ algorithms. The official Launch Announcement appears below with links to the pre-order page and other places where you can find out more about this exciting endeavor.


Steampunk celebrates its 31st birthday on April 27, so join in the festivities with the high-flying adventure, Army of Brass.
 
“Steampunk” began as a literary genre, but has expanded to include fashion, music, art, and live events all over the world. During 2017, in honor of author K.W. Jeter coining the term in 1987, Steampunk Journal editor Phoebe Darqueling and the Collaborative Writing Challenge joined forces to create an amazing work that blurs the line between science and magic. Twenty international authors contributed chapters to this story full of gadgets, romance, and political intrigue set against the backdrop of a fantasy world informed by the culture of the 19th century.

What is
Army of Brass About?
When the mad conqueror haunting Elaina's dreams invades her adopted homeland, the real nightmare becomes what she's willing to do to stop him.
 
The dreaded Hunter Baron has landed on the shores of Mailderet, but Master Tinkerer Elaina Gable believes she has the solution. Giant automatons sit rusting in the valley, waiting for someone with the drive and ingenuity to bring them to life. But the king, swayed by the destruction his ancestors wrought centuries before, harbors a deep-seated fear of the machines. Though he will not allow the alliance of Tinkerers and Smiths to complete the work, Elaina resolves to bring the machines back to life in secretwith the help of a famous airship pilot.
 
From the safety of the swamps, a woman with silver skin jealously guards the secrets of the automatons. Though the Silver Woman also wishes the past to remain buried, she must weigh the value of secrecy against the thousands of innocents her hesitation might send to the grave.
 
As they discover the link between the toxic valley and the inner workings of the automatons, Elaina and her allies are drawn into a web of deceit threatening the balance of power across two continentsand proving the truth behind the deadly legends surrounding the Army of Brass.
