I hope that you enjoy the new trailer for my novel, The Caelimane Operation. It is exciting to see my vision come to life in this format.
The novel will be available January 16th from Musa Publishing. I cannot wait!
When the Temples to the Goddess north of Southwatch are burned and followers of Dione are murdered, Hierocrat Catherine, a bard of the Caelimane Temple, sets out to find those responsible and to bring them to justice. With only the help of a traveling group of minstrels and a retired fae investigator, Catherine must solve the mystery before more people are killed, but will she succeed when she finds herself pitted against members of her own Temple, rogue members of the Seelie Court, and a seemingly unstoppable army of undead?
About the Darkside Codex
The Caelimane Operation is part of Musa Publishing’s Darkside Codex, a shared world series with a steampunk setting. Although steampunk forms the basis, the novels in the series explore science fiction, high fantasy, urban fantasy, horror, paranormal, romance, mystery, and noir themes. At the center of each story is the city of Southwatch and the dark cloud (a toxic stew of chemicals and pollution) that bisects not only the city, but the people who live in it. Segregation is quite literally built into the structure of the city with the rich and the powerful citizens living “sunside” while the poor and downtrodden live beneath the dark cloud.
The higher up you are in the city, the wealthier and more powerful you are.
The Caelimane Operation is scheduled for release on January 16, 2015 by Musa Publishing.

In just a few hours the cover reveal for my first novel, The Caelimane Operation, goes live. Please be sure to check back here. Don’t be late like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland and miss the exciting details!
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice `without pictures or conversation?’
So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, `Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!’ (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

The following is a guest post by the absolutely wonderful author, Devorah Fox. You can catch up with her at http://devorahfox.com/
Happy birthday, King Bewilliam, officially “born” on Dec. 14, 2011 with the publication of the high fantasy The Lost King.
The story was inspired by a friend’s real life crisis, a complete personal and professional derailment. I wanted to see if I couldn’t craft a happy ending.
That turned out to be harder than I thought. Even the strongest among us doesn’t bounce right back from such stunning losses. While he scored some successes, King Bewilliam continued to struggle to reclaim his life which led to The King’s Ransom and The King’s Redress.
King Bewilliam may regain his throne but his life will never be what it once was. His only choice? To redefine himself, find new motivations, new passions, new validations. He continues to rediscover himself. Last month I began The Redoubt, Book Four, in which he dares to contemplate happiness he thought was lost to him.
To celebrate and give you a chance to enjoy the series at a bargain price, the Kindle edition of Book Three, The King’s Redress, is available for at a bargain price from Dec. 14 to Dec. 17 on Kindle US and Kindle UK.
The king’s subjects will be making merry all week throughout the kingdom so check back to see what else we have in store to commemorate this anniversary.
