Monday News and Announcements

Here's what's new and interesting in my world:

* RT Book Reviews gave Miss Bramble and the Leviathan 4 1/2 stars! You can read the fabulous review here.

* Bad Blood, book 3 in my new gothic urban fantasy series for Orbit Books, is done and out with my beta readers.

* Speaking of those Orbit Books, cover art is underway for that series (out next year) - and can I just say, prepare to be wowed. It's going to be unlike anything you've seen on an urban fantasy before. Awesome!

* Speaking of covers, the next book I'll be releasing on Kindle/PubIt/Smashwords is The Perfect Dish. I plan to release it early December. Here's the fabulous cover, done by the talented Kim Killion:

Release Day!!!

Miss Bramble And The Leviathan is officially on sale!!! You can get your copy here. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend! Nothing says I care like steampunk. ;o)

If you like a chance to win a copy, stop by Meljean Brooks blog today and leave a comment.

Here's the book's blurb:

The last thing she planned to steal was his heart.

The Company. Military institution, protector of Praeton and the nation of Grand Isle. Dirty rotten thief.

When Pandora Bramble steps aboard the Company’s premiere airship Daedalus it’s not for the exclusive VIP tour. It’s to secure proof that the Company stole the regulator valve her father designed—even if it means tearing the engine apart. Foiled by the unexpected appearance of a handsome crew member, she despairs of ever getting another chance—until he kisses her.

Captain Theolonius Hatch, sentenced to engine room duty for refusing to take part in the Company’s fleet week activities, never dreamed a woman like Pandora existed. Her brains match her beauty, a combination that adds up to more trouble than he ever expected.

As Pandora allows Theolonius to sweep her into a whirlwind courtship, her wildest dreams come true. As do her greatest fears, leaving her to decide what matters most. Loyalty…or love.

The clock is ticking.

Warning: This book contains airships, mechanical owls, women who are good with tools, men in and out of uniform, steam generated by engines and people, and some hot carriage scenes.

Now go forth and purchase!
