I’m blogged out, and it’s only Wednesday! On Friday September 9th, (only two days from now!) Beyond Prudence will be released from Ellora’s Cave! You can read an excerpt here and watch the trailer here. In honor of this wonderful event, I’ll be tripping the blog fantastic between release day and Tuesday, September 13th. Maybe even beyond! Who knows? Strange things can happen when you enter the blogosphere! I hope you’ll all come to visit at one of the stops, learn a little about me and Prudence, hear how it all came to pass and maybe even win a copy of the book!
On Friday, I return to where it all started, the Passionate Reads blog, with the story of how Beyond Prudence came to be. I’ll also be visiting with Lynne Silver, where I’ll reveal who I’d do if I could have my pick of Steampunk characters.
Next Tuesday, I’m here, there and, oh yeah, everywhere.
· Amy Ruttan! with an exclusive excerpt
· J. Rose Allister! with a recipe
· Cristal Ryder! with another exclusive excerpt
· Michelle Miles! where I answer that wily lady's questions
· Stephanie Julian! where you can find the philosophy according to Prudence et al
And, I’ll be doing a special post at the Uninhibited History blog, run by history geeks Amy Ruttan and me. That poor little blog has been quietly waiting for us to devote some more time to it, and that’s my intention as the summer of crazy comes to a close. The blog tour’s gonna be exhausting…no, not really, since the hard graft is mostly done. It should be fun instead. Hope to see you there! And, for the heck of it, I'll embed the video as well. I love it so!!
The mysterious device in Prudence Hastings’ basement could be the answer to her prayers, if she could just figure out what it is. Needing William Foreman’s help, she’s prepared to do whatever it takes to gain it. Even putting aside her dislike of machines and volunteering to test the risqué apparatus he’s developing for the Acolytes of Concupiscence.
Will’s expecting a lightskirt for a test subject and is horrified when he realizes the tempting woman he just debauched is very much a lady. But despite his best intentions, something keeps drawing him back to her, and it isn’t just the thought of discovering the inner workings of her uncle’s last invention. Unlocking their passion is turning out to be a far more pleasurable, if dangerous, job.
Beset by desire, automatons, secrets, an unintelligible maid and the danger of utter ruin should their association become known, Will and Prudence haven’t a chance in hell of remaining unscathed.
Fire up the boiler, open the sluices and take cover. Something’s about to explode…
