The Caelimane Operation

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?

The Darkside Codex

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.

Heart & Mind

Heart&Mind (2)

My short story, “Heart & Mind,” is now available on Kindle Unlimited.

Story Synopsis: A princess with hair as golden as a sunflower and eyes as green as apples was blessed from birth to have beauty and power and to marry a prince on her eighteenth birthday. Unfortunately for all concerned, there is only one eligible prince in all of the kingdoms, and before he agrees to marry the princess, he wants a magical guarantee that she will look a certain way, talk a certain way, and even think only what he wants. What is a fairy godmother to do?

Sometimes a fairy godmother needs more than magic.

I hope that you all enjoy it!

First Novel to be Published with Musa Publishing

Book with Heart

Musa Publishing has accepted my manuscript. I signed the contract on Friday.

It looks like the novel will be released sometime in October of this year.

I will provide more details as they become available.

I am very happy and I want to thank everyone who has provided me support and encouragement over the years—especially my fellow authors. The people I have met through WordPress, Facebook, and Twitter have been wonderful. I am really glad that I discovered the #amwriting group; reading the posts there about both the tribulations and successes of other authors is inspirational. (And I constantly marvel at the word counts everyone strives for each day!)

In an earlier posting this month ( http://chrispavesic.com/2014/05/09/on-writing-writing-inspiration-from-other-authors/ ) I shared some advice from fellow writer Jim Butcher: “*NO ONE* can take your dream away.” I truly believe this and I hope that the readers of my blog do as well.

Perseverance is the key word of the day. Keep at it, keep writing, and do not give up.

Cheers!

Chris
