It’s Brimstone Day!

FINALLY. The day is upon us! Brimstone Day! Whereupon you may officially purchase Brimstone, rather than pre-order it and wait impatiently! NOW IT CAN BE YOURS.

Thank you times a million to everyone who DID pre-order, mind you. Those pre-orders are important, and they are deeply, deeply appreciated. But likewise beloved are the people who pick up a book once it’s been released!

So…Brimstone. It’s a little different for me (according to some folks) – I mean, it’s a dark historic fantasy, kind of horror-y, but I’d like to think that it winds up in a different place from some of my other material. (Like, if you hated the end of The Family Plot,* you’re going to like this one much, much better.) But to be more specific, Brimstone is my subtropical (art)deco mystery about a young clairvoyant in a historic spiritualist community who teams up with a shell-shocked haberdasher with a fistful of love notes from hell…as inspired by a real place and a real set of bizarre (otherworldly?) incidents.

In addition to a groovy real-life setting in 1920s central Florida, Brimstone features a variety of fun elements – including a camp meeting full of happy mediums (wocka wocka), a massive vintage flame-thrower, a vindictive German poltergeist, high-end haberdashery, and a little white dog.

NOTE: The little white dog does not die in this book. I wouldn’t do that to you. The pooch gets a tad traumatized, but he lives happily ever after, I swear to God.

Maybe that should be called a spoiler or something, but screw it. I hate reading books/watching movies or TV shows and worrying myself to death about whether or not anything terrible is going to happen to the dogs/cats/whatever. Therefore, consider yourself advised that all the animals in this book are safe and well cared for, despite any alarming adventures.

Some of the people…not so much.

Right. Anyway. If you’d like to read an excerpt, Tor.Com has you covered! Go take a gander, and see how you feel about it. Publishers Weekly gave it a gave it a starred review, and Romantic times/Booklist also really dug it. And the B&N sci-fi/fantasy blog called it a spellbinding historical fantasy. If any of those recommendations might prompt you to give it a try.

With that in mind, let me make things easier for you – if you want to grab Brimstone without leaving your keyboard:

Thanks so much for reading, thanks for leaving reviews, and thanks for sticking with me after all this time. You guys are the best, and I couldn’t do it without you.


* Everybody either loved it or hated it, split right down the middle. NO REGRETS.
