Wot's Noo?

Not much to report at the moment.

My POD copies of Rast have not yet arrived, so the planning of more promotion is stalled. I may have mentioned I entered Rast in the EPIC Awards this year and am waiting to learn whether it sinks or swims.

I'm following Rast with a Regency work. I'd call it a romance if it didn't have as much action has a great deal of steam train and ship travel but it's not fantastical enough to call steampunk. It takes place in a somewhat alternate Regency because I shifted the 19th century rapid progress of steam to begin earler, with the start England's South Eastern Railway moved to 1802---and gave Napoleon a boost with a new plan to invade England in 1815. Oh...and the female protagonist is the proprietor of a steamship yard on the Clyde---as well as being pursued by interested gentlemen.

Other than those twists I'm writing in a style as near to Regency as I dare, with all the formality and convoluted social graces that one might enjoy in a novel of Jane Austen. I have a Regency practice ongoing, with posts on my other blog to work myself into the groove of thinking Regency.

Rast On Sale

Hi Everyone:

Rast is on sale for 40% off this holiday weekend ... celebrating both Canada Day and 4th of July.

While the regular price is a bargain, the reduction might make a difference to friends of yours who need an extra incentive to risk reading the work of an author they are not familiar with. We need every little push---that's the only way we up and coming writers get to be recognised by the reading public.

I will be offering freebies in July when I receive my POD copies of Rast. The people who have offered to read it for reviews will get free copies, so why shouldn't a new reader get the same thing? Not sure how I will set it up yet, but watch this space.
