Groovy new covers for my first three books

My first three novels – loosely known as The Eden Moore Trilogy – will be re-released in the UK next year, with these revamped covers! I adore the original Palencar art, but I like this re-do a lot too; it’s very unexpected and cool, simple and evocative. Thanks so much to the Titan folks, who gave me the images in the first place – and gave me permission to share them.

There’s precious little to report today, I’m afraid – though yes, I do remember how I said there’d be awesome announcements here, and very soon. Well, sometimes announcements get delayed a tiny bit. These things happen! And the news will definitely be revealed soon – before the end of the week, or so I have been told.

I have also been told that patience is a virtue, but let’s be honest – I kind of suck at it.


This has been an day-job-work day, all day long – though I did pause to investigate a frequently asked question with regards to Ganymede.

In short, people have been asking me about Ganymede‘s audiobook status; so I pestered my marvelous editor (Liz), hoping she’d know off the top of her head, and would not be sent on some kind of dungeon-crawling mini-quest through the bowels of Tor. Of course, I accidentally sent her on a dungeon-crawling mini-quest … but she valiantly returned with the answer – so now, I pass it along to you: Where is the Ganymede audiobook? We don’t know! Ha!

No, no – it’s not really so sad and weird as that. It’s just another delay, which is the story of my life right now, but things could be worse. The audiobook was supposed to drop on the same day as the trade paperback, but clearly it did not; however, it should be live any day now. Any moment, even!

Keep an eye on the book’s listing at Macmillan. You’ll see it linked there, when everything is GO. Meanwhile, here are the other useful links that will take you to that book – and don’t forget, writers love friendly reader reviews, so please let me gently encourage you to post and share your thoughts at the vendor of your preference.

Happy Ganymede Day!

Ganymede_cov_REV It’s finally here! Ganymede officially hits stores – and e-readers, and online retailers – today!

And I do very much hope you’ll take a chance on this, my fourth Clockwork Century novel,* set in my alternate history universe with a drawn-out American Civil War complicated by a peculiar form of zombie uprising!

I have more fun with these books than should frankly be allowed, and if you’re interested in diving into the series, this is as good a place as any to get started. Would it be somewhat helpful to have read the others first? Sure, I guess. But each of these stories is written to let people read along without feeling too lost.

This is a franchise more than a series, so please don’t be put off by the prospect of not being all caught up with the other stories yet. If you dig pirates, airships, Victorian submarines, espionage, zombies, and ass-kicking … this might well be the book for you!

Here – allow me to provide you with links, for your clicking pleasure:

Man, I dipped into the exclamation marks again. Well, can you blame me? I’m so terribly excited about this one! Now I just have to run around all over the internet, updating my websites and widgets and information, oh my …

Thanks for reading, everyone, and if you take a chance on this weird little book, I do hope you enjoy it!
