Interview and #Giveaway coming!

The lovely–and bag fanatic–Vicki Batman is hosting me on Get Lost In A Story this Wednesday, July 8th (here!–live on Wednesday!). It’s a not-to-be-missed post for two reasons:

1) We’re offering a giveaway of a print copy of The Unraveling to one lucky commenter


2) I’m revealing what’s in my heroine Annmar’s bag–not your typical Victorian heroine’s bag, but a leather satchel, a la those carried by Civil War soldiers.

What a bag, huh? As one of my reviewer’s said, “… Annmar’s newly found roots give her the mettle to be a woman far ahead of her time!

I’ll be in and out through the day to chat and answer questions about my new release. 🙂

Reviews and interviews!

I’ve had a couple of very nice reviews posted on my Amazon page–thank you so much!

If you’ve read The Unraveling and are able to post where you purchased it–which is only Amazon just yet–or on your favorite book site, like Goodreads, that would be great. Reviews help readers find new authors, which is downright tricky in today’s digital world.

Want to know more about how I came to write The Unraveling? I have two interviews coming up:

Wednesday, 7/8  ~~   Get Lost In A Story, Guest, Interview and Giveaway

Tuesday, 7/21 & 28 ~~  History Undressed, Guest posts on my granddad’s steam engines

This Wednesday’s will feature a giveaway of a print copy of The Unraveling to one lucky commenter selected via

Come chat with me!

Celebrating #IndieBooksBeSeen

Big day on social media for Indie authors!

Setting Teaser

Wow, I’m still grinning stupidly from cover reveal day. Thanks for all the posts, tweets  and good wishes!

So how about that beautiful farming valley my cover artist Craig created? The Peaks District in England–the setting of the story–doesn’t quite look like this, as my Pinterest research board shows. I bet you’ve figured out why already: The Unraveling is a fantasy, so this valley is special in some way. Thus, I had to give it a special name, one not found on any UK map. Critique members and family alike have had the same reaction to the name, so I asked the heroine what she thought:

TU Teaser 4 (Blighted Basin?)

There’s a reason for Blighted Basin’s bizarre name, but like the cover, it’s part of the slow reveal of the story!

How about a teaser?

TU Teaser 3 (How can you draw)

My heroine Annmar is an artist with extra-special talent. Wait until she figures out what she can really do!
