Don’t Be Late

Statue of Alice In Wonderland, NY

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 Lost King by Devorah Fox


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.

The King's Redress by Devorah FoxTo 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.

    Season Two Spire City Pre-Launch Party, or Why Orlando Bloom Is the Secret God of Steampunk Yet to Be

    10369697_10152825148502346_5009985691041206949_n
    Last night I attended a pre-release party on Facebook for Season Two of Daniel Ausema’s Spire City. Many of my fellow Darkside Codex authors were also guests and we had several discussions about writing and the steampunk genre.

    I would like to thank Daniel for hosting a wonderful party!

    Daniel shared beautiful works of art done for Spire City by Worlds Beyond Art. You can learn more about their work at the following: http://worldsbeyondart.com

    We also had a spirited discussion about steampunk re-imaginings of other stories. Daniel brought up The Lord of the Rings as a work he would love to see steampunked. I thought Pirates of the Caribbean would be a natural one for the steampunk genre, and Nyki Blatchley and Eric Spannerman focused on the Greek Myths. During the discussion, I noted that all of these had one aspect in common: Orlando Bloom. He starred in The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Troy.
    Eric Spannerman dubbed him “The Secret God of Steampunk Yet to Be” and the rest of us concurred.
