Happy One Month, Alchemyst’s Mirror!

Celebrating 1 month of The Alchemyst’s Mirror, and a full recipe for the Raspberry Crumble Bars.

Can you believe The Alchemyst’s Mirror has been out for a month already!

“Liz Delton is a wonderful steampunk author who infuses her novels with action, humor, whimsy, and charming characters set in a unique fantastical world.”

Elizabeth Chatsworth, Author of The Brass Queen

This was one of my absolute favorite books to write, and it’s definitely got one of my favorite cover designs! I’m already working on writing book #2, The Thief’s Amulet, and just started messing around with the new cover–because if I’m going to procrastinate writing, I might as well do it with another writing-related project, right?

I’ve had some awesome reviews coming in for The Alchemyst’s Mirror, had the local newspaper do a feature on me, and even got to talk about the book on a UK radio show.

“A fast paced tale of mystery, sisterhood, and tea.”

H.L. Burke, Fantasy Author

“If you enjoy steampunk or mystery adventure stories, then I recommend reading The Alchemyst’s Mirror. It was a mix of Indiana Jones and Sherlock Holmes, but with two sisters leading the story.”

The Plum Report

To keep on celebrating this book, I’m going to start releasing some of the recipes featured in the blog tour, but with more pictures! When I decided to include “tea shop recipes” in the blog tour, I test baked all of them. Today I’m going to share a really yummy one, Elliot Everturn’s Raspberry Crumble Bars.

The Recipe: Raspberry Crumble Bars

Ingredients

Flour- 1 Cup
Oats- 1 Cup
Baking Powder- 1 tsp
Brown Sugar- 3/4 Cup
Butter- 1/2 Cup (1 stick)
Raspberries- 2 Cups (fresh or frozen)
Lemon Juice- 2 tbsp
White Sugar- 1/2 Cup
Flour- 2 tbsp

Instructions

  • Mix the flour, oats, baking powder, and brown sugar in a bowl.
  • Melt the butter, and stir it into the mixture until crumbly.
  • Pour two thirds of the mixture into an 8×8 pan (or pie dish)
  • In a small bowl, mix the raspberries with the lemon juice, white sugar, and flour.
  • Spread the raspberries evenly across the crumble in the pan.
  • Sprinkle the remaining crumble on top.
  • Bake at 350F for 35 minutes
  • Cool and cut into squares
  • Top with lemon glaze: Powdered sugar with a dash of lemon juice added until it reaches desired icing consistency.

When I made mine, I used frozen raspberries, and they worked perfectly!
Just look at that crumble

The Alchemyst’s Mirror Blog & Bookstagram Tour

I’m so excited for the release of The Alchemyst’s Mirror on October 27th! This steampunk/gaslamp fantasy novel is the first in the Everturn Chronicles, but is a standalone story, so you don’t have to worry about cliffhangers or catching up for the next book.

Check out all the stops along the Blog & Bookstagram tour with some great features; this post will be updated daily.

The Alchemyst’s Mirror was actually a pretty fun read. From the beginning, the plot gets rolling and doesn’t stop for the entire novel. The pacing in this book is really good, and I found Maisie and Petra’s desperate quest to reunite their family to be a narrative that was super compelling and engaging. I loved how the bond between sisters is truly the heart of this book. Maisie and Petra would do anything for each other, and seeing their relationship was really rewarding. I thought the plot and the different factions wanting the Alchemyst’s Mirror was really well-thought out and intriguing. The Alchemyst’s Mirror is a delightful steampunk fantasy about the lengths we will go for family and power. โฃ โฃ Thank you @lizdeltonwrites for the ARC and swag!โฃ โฃ ๐๐Ž๐“๐ƒ Favorite fall hot drink? โฃ โฃ โฃ โฃ #bookstagram #bookstagrammers #bookworm #booklover #bookdragon #bibliophile #bookaholic #readersofinstagram #readerlife #bookish #bookaddict #ireadya #igreads #instareads #bookcommunity #bookobsessed #amreading #bookphotography readersrejoice #spookytime #halloween #tuesday #thealchemystsmirror #newreleasetuesday #lizdelton #arcreview #steampunkfantasy

โš—๏ธAlchemystโ€™s Lab โš™๏ธ โ€ข โ€ข Hello there my spooky, Bookwyrms! I am so thrilled to be featuring @lizdeltonwrites new book The Alchemystโ€™s Mirror for todayโ€™s #clocktobereadathon prompt. The theme is Magical Objects and the firs think I thought of was the Philosopherโ€™s Stone. Red Stone Necklace from @sweetmelissasgiftsetc. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข The Alchemystโ€™s Mirror was officially published just yesterday! I was so excited when I received my bookstagram tour package. It includes an exclusive tea blend called Brass Breakfast, an exclusive book mark made by the author and of course the book itself. I absolutely love the cover design and the color scheme. Of course itโ€™s steampunk af and I look forward to reading it soon. I just been so involved with reading spooky books this month I couldnโ€™t squeeze it in but I will definitely read this in November! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Also some shop news from @orderofchaospins. She will no longer be producing any Harry Potter inspired designs due to WB cracking down on fans selling thier art based on the series. So that means once her poster designs sell out the will not be returning. Link in my bio use code CLOCKWORK15 to save! โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Question: What are some of your favorite magical objects? Can be from any book or show or video game. Please just let be know what itโ€™s from wan what it does. TIA โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข Answer: From the Wizarding World I really love the Ravenclaw Diadem before it was turned into a Horcrux. Having seemingly infinite wisdom sound amazing but also a bit unsettling. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #thealchemystsmirror #lizdelton #steampunk #steampunkstyle #steampunktea #steampumkin #yareads #yabooks #yabookstagram #bookish #bookdragon #bookwyrm #booklover #bookreader #sweetmelissagiftsetc #orderofchaospins #enamelpins #spooky #spookyvibes #spookyseason #bookmark #newbook
