The Queen of Cobwebs by Jeremy Mortis: Something is hunting people in the foggy streets, and the professor and his assistant are about to meet it.

Vacant by Nick Lofthouse: Where does a dreamer fit into a world where ideas are a finite resource from any one person? Could free thought be our savior, or just a sweet distraction from the inevitable?

Hour of Darkness by Ashley Pasco: Carissa Upton is just your average Victorian street urchin - little does she know that her life is about to change forever. Not only is her entire life a lie, but her future is uncertain.

A Connecticut Yankee in Queen Victoria’s Court by G. Miki Hayden: Engineering professor Dr. Alice Alante doesn't believe in time travel. But when she's sent to Queen Victoria's Windsor castle in a strange machine, her only choice may be to help build a dirigible to defend the crown.

Lucky Escape for Goldilocks Girl by Perry McDaid: On a new world structured to reprise all the patriarchal and elitist notions of the Elizabethan era, a young girl promised to an old but influential suitor chooses to rebel by masquerading as a Knight of the Road … or Highwayman.

Calliope by Terri Karsten: Roscoe Gordon dreams of bringing back his dad’s Steam Calliope, but he’s hindered by a pair of prank-loving ghosts. With their help, will he lead the parade or blow the whole thing up?

The Balloon Thief by Jessica Gunn: Adeline has made a name for herself as Beltham’s Balloon Thief for stealing high-priced jewelry items and leaving only a balloon in their place, setting sail for finer lands on her steam-powered hot air balloon. Adeline has been told the stolen rings and gems open a door on the mysterious Leikei, the temple in the air where she thinks her friend Colin is stranded. On her last robbery attempt, she’s arrested and forced to place her trust in the museum owner’s daughter who has her own reasons for wanting to get to Leikei. If she can trust her, Adeline just might be able to rescue Colin. If not, it might be the end for them all.

Ethereal Coil by S.A. Larsen: A new sin eater's refusal to do her job of keeping balance between good and evil awakens Wrath, one of the Seven Deadly Sins, endangering those closest to her.

Fritz Finkel and the Marvelous Mechanical Thing by Lorna MacDonald Czarnota: Every era has to begin sometime, and every inventor starts someplace. For Fritz, it is the opportunity to impress the "apple of his eye," the lovely, unobtainable Greta Spielmacher--the toymaker's daughter. Fritz wants to be a toy designer, but he's the janitor. Will his special toy be the key to winning his lady love?

Henry the Tailor by Grant Eagar: Henry is a tailor and inventor of flying machines. Sophie is an agent for the English secret service. Henry and Sophie live in the alternate, steam powered world of Victorian England. The country is at war with Count Von-Friedrich and his horde of mercenaries. The spies of the count are killing and kidnapping the English scientists and inventors. Sophie’s job is to root out the spies and she uses Henry’s inventions as an enticement.

Talking Metal by W. K. Pomeroy: Five years after piloting a zeppelin to the other side of the world to find the spark, Saskia is on the verge of inventing greatness, but her old professor appears to have beaten her to the patent office, or has he?

The Women of Lastonia by Lorna Marie Larson: Earth's best team must learn why a distant planet won't join the Interstellar Alliance. Diplomacy is key, but the closed steampunk society has some primeval ideas on how to treat the fairer sex.

A Character That Won’t Let Go. #Authors Have You Ever Had This Problem Before?

For a year or so, my husband had been bugging me to write Ameerah. She’s a character who has made appearances in the last two books in my Beyond the Eyes trilogy. Her story is a standalone, meaning you can read it without ever having read the BTE books. It’s her tale about how she became a dark spirit who can dwell inside soulless humans and live whatever life she desires. If she wants to experience being a hot blonde chick with loads of money, she can. If she wants to drink, smoke, party, have mind-blowing sex, she can and then leave the vessel she possessed. No problem. Her story is a unique one. She recounts her life when she was human in 1925 when she was a flapper gal, on the brink of fulfilling her dreams. But then she was betrayed by her elitist parents who thought Ameerah would threaten their position in society if she continued on with her antics. I won’t tell you what they did, but they took everything from her. 

Her freedom. 

Her dignity. 

Her life. 

Then she was brutally murdered and found herself at a recruiting station. 


She had a choice to move on to the next realm or become a dark spirit and have the opportunity to get revenge on those who stole her life from her. She chose the latter and then takes the reader on a journey, not only on what it’s like to be a dark spirit, which is interesting in itself but through the timelines as well, up to present day where she enlists her dark spirit friend Derek to help her obtain salvation. Here are the timelines Ameerah takes the reader through:

Starts with the present day.

Then the 1920s: Prohibition, flapper gals, speakeasies, the stock market crash.





The Depression:




WWII: The dark spirits had a heavy hand in the war, and the immortals fought against the Germans. 



The 1950s: music, the twist, soda shops, pinup girls.




The Vietnam War: The dark spirits were involved with that as well.




Studio 54: Ameerah was there when Bianca Jagger rode a white horse inside the club on her birthday.




The 1980s:




Back to present day.

I’ve never experienced this before as an author, but my character Ameerah won’t let go of me. Seriously. She’s with me all the time, even though I’m writing another story on something totally different. I wonder if other authors have ever had this problem. I know Ameerah still has a lot to say and she will in the future. We’re not done yet. I also plan on continuing my Beyond the Eyes trilogy with a fourth book, but for now, Ameerah and my BTE trilogy are going to have to wait until I’ve completed this new exciting project, which I will announce in the near future.

So authors, if there are any reading this post, have you ever had a character of yours that stuck with you long after you were done writing about him or her? If so, what did you do about it?


Oh, and just for fun, here’s a picture of Ameerah and her dark spirit recruiter Aiden. He's Irish, btw, and hilarious.

Title: Moonchild 
Author: Kate L. Mary 
Genre : Paranormal 





In a world fueled by greed and corruption, where airships rule the skies and coal mines have been turned into prisons, Scarlett Moon has one goal: Survive. Being tough and looking out for herself is the only way to stay alive, but when her best friend, Rory, is arrested and returned to the mines, all of Scarlett’s carefully built walls threaten to crumble. 


After being rescued by an airship full of pirates, led by the sexy and irresistible Asher Kimura, Scarlett finds herself surrounded by cons and fugitives, and thrust into the middle of a coal-smuggling business. When they take her to Columbus, the one place she never wanted to set foot in again, she wants nothing more than to get away. And her discomfort only grows as she becomes increasingly drawn to Asher. 


But everything changes when she discovers there may be a way to rescue Rory. Enlisting the pirates' help, Scarlett sets out on a mission to save her friend, praying that her overwhelming attraction to Asher doesn’t mean the end to her freedom—in more ways than one.
