Spin Off Series Cover Reveal and Release Date

If you’ve been following along, you’ve heard me talk about the Final Formula side story I’ve been writing that features two characters from the main series, Era and Doug. I had planned this single novel to be one last romp in my Final Formula world before I jumped into something new, but things didn’t go as planned. There turned out to be a lot more story in my little side adventure than I realized and it became a series in its own right. So without further ado, here’s the cover and blurb for Whispers on the Wind, the first book in my Death’s Legacy Series. Era Brant couldn’t have asked for a more perfect project to launch her interior design business. The Nelson mansion has many hidden wonders: cherry support posts, natural stone floors, and an abundance of paranormal activity. As an avid ghost hunter, Era is drawn to the house for more than just its nineteenth-century charm—especially when she gets a little ghostly help with the proposed architectural plans. As the new Deacon, the leader of the Old Magic community, Doug Nelson is catching a lot of heat about letting Era and her New Magic contractor renovate the home of their Community’s founder. But Doug’s troubles don’t stop there. His brother Declan has returned home after a messy divorce and befriends Era. Doug was hoping the renovation project would be a chance to get to know Era better. He doesn’t need his brother butting in. Era doesn’t know what to make of Declan, but when he admits that he’s been communicating with the mansion’s ghost since childhood, she finds a new ally. With his help, she might be able to figure out what this ghost wants. But giving a ghost what it desires can be a risky venture, and as Era knows, dealing with the Nelson dead takes that risk to a whole new level.

Introducing My New Series

With the Final Formula Series now complete, sort of (more on that below), I’m ready to move into new territory.  I’ve been working on this new series in the background, but since it wasn’t scheduled for release until August of this year, I haven’t said much.  (I don’t know about you, but I just hate to be teased by something I want, only to learn there’s a looong wait until it’s available.)  But with the release date less than two months away, I think it’s close enough for me to start teasing. My new series is entitled Iron Souls, and is set in nineteenth century rural America, on the Ohio & Erie Canal.  I’m categorizing this one as a Steampunk Fantasy, though that might not be a true category.  From what I’ve read, steampunk tends to be science fiction, but my steampunk elements are fantasy based.  Since I’m a science geek, that seems to work for me.  I’m always trying to explain my magic with science, but where the Final Formula was alchemy, Iron Souls delves into metallurgy. I hope you’ll give my new series a try.  Though it’s a different world, I’m still me, so you’ll find mouthy characters, a little romance, some darker elements, and an occasional explosion.  And I must admit that I’m digging the magic system in this one. But enough of that.  Here’s the cover and blurb for Ferromancer, Iron Souls: Book One. Captain Bridget “Briar” Rose wants for nothing. Each day is a new adventure, living the life she loves, running cargo on the Ohio & Erie Canal. That is, until her cousin decides to sell the family boat to finance a new business venture. He wants to build locomotives for the railroad—the very industry that could put the entire canal system out of business. Not one to give up without a fight, Briar does a little snooping into her cousin’s new business partner. When she gets a sneak peek at the locomotive plans, she suspects that the man is either a genius, or a ferromancer—one of the dreaded metal mages of Europe’s industrial revolution. Determined to reveal her suspicions, Briar takes the plans and heads for the...
