All Hallows Airship Cover Reveal

All Hallows Airship Cover Reveal

A catastrophic blast. A haunting memory. And she only has one chance to prove her family’s innocence.

All Caz Coppersdown has ever wanted is to be a journalist for the Soldark Times. But the chances of her parents letting her pursue a breaking story are slim. Secluded after a childhood illness, Caz finally gets to leave Soldark for a trip to the country to her great aunt’s estate, but she quickly finds out there isn’t anything newsworthy there—unless you count her aunt’s upcoming All Hallows Eve soiree.

Until the local airshow clashes with her aunt’s party plans—causing more than just pumpkins to be destroyed. When Caz meets one of the airship pilots and discovers something about her family’s past, Caz might have just found her big story.

But she’ll need to dig for the facts quickly, because the constables are looking for a culprit, and old ghosts are making themselves known on this All Hallows Eve.

The 3rd book in Seasons of Soldark (which can be read in any order), is coming October 25th!

Merry Christmas from Soldark

Merry Christmas from Soldark

In the city of Soldark, the Inventor’s Guild is giving non-union inventors a chance to join their prestigious ranks. But the deadline to apply is on Christmas day, only 4 days away. That’s not going to stop Aurelia Sundon.

Unless of course her ex-love’s invention gets out of control and only she can help stop it from ruining the city, her own invention, and her chances at a better life.

The Clockwork Ice Dragon is only 99c now until Christmas!

An invention gone wrong. A city buried in snow. And she only has ‘til Christmas to make it right.

Aurelia Sundon has an idea for a brilliant invention that will ensure her family’s financial future. But the elite inventor’s guild has imposed a ridiculous deadline for invention applications: Christmas Day. With only four days until the deadline, Aurelia thinks she can finish it in time.

Until her old love Frederick Grandville steps back into her life when he enters the competition with his own invention. Frederick could be the downfall of Aurelia’s career. Again. But when his invention goes out of control, the wondrous snow it brings down on the ever-sunny city of Soldark turns into an outright blizzard.

With a broken promise between them, she’s not so sure she wants to help him. But the clock is ticking, the snow is getting deeper, and Aurelia must find a way to team up with her rival or risk losing her one chance at a better life.

The Gray Mage is now available!

The Gray Mage is now available!

It’s here! And the paperback JUST went live just in time despite a mysterious error I kept getting with Amazon’s system over the weekend.

The advance reviews of The Gray Mage have been too sweet, and several people have already said that this book is their favorite in the series so far!

With that said, no pressure when I write book #4 then, I guess, right?

I’m hosting a giveaway (US only, sorry) for signed paperbacks of The Starless Girl and The Storm King, and there’s only a few hours left. Two lucky people will win. Enter here:

Are you team Light or team Shadow?

Are you team Light or team Shadow?

With The Gray Mage dropping August 31, I’m wondering…

Are you team Light, or team Shadow?

Comment on this blog post and let me know. 🤍🖤🤍🖤🤍🖤

I’m all about opposites and contrast. So the magic in the Realm of Camellia is too. Light magic is visible, Shadow magic is invisible. Light magic is solid, and you can touch it. Shadow magic is intangible.

If you could choose, which would you rather have?

Light magic allows you to create anything you can think of, summoning a solid object made of Light, that can be used for anything (tools, weapons, clothing, anything depending on your skill to imagine it).

Shadow magic can be almost anything that’s not visible/tangible. Moving things with wind, controlling the weather, plants, etc. This one has a lot of possibilities too.

J.D.L. Rosell spills the tea on The Throne of Ice and Ash

J.D.L. Rosell spills the tea on The Throne of Ice and Ash

Today I’ve got some fun book news to share with you, as J.D.L. Rosell stops by to spill the tea on his new fantasy release, The Throne of Ice and Ash, book one in The Runewar Saga.

Ok, J.D.L, spill it!

Hey folks! I have a new first book in a series out today — which is actually a heavily revised version of the first novel I ever wrote! The Throne of Ice and Ash is an epic fantasy with a lot my favorite things from the genre: big military conflicts, tons of political intrigue, and huge character trauma and growth. It’s inspired by Norse mythology and may, with some accuracy, be considered “Game of Thrones between Vikings and Egyptians.” This book begins my grandest epic to date, and I hope you’ll join me in beginning the journey!

How about some tea?

“Tea? What’s tea? Pass the ale or mead!” – probably one of the characters in Throne

Check out the book, and follow J.D.L. on:

Tourmaline & Quartz Publishing

Tourmaline & Quartz Publishing

I have been sitting on this news for a little while because I was waiting for all the paperwork to go through!

Here goes.

I have established an LLC for my publishing business, Tourmaline & Quartz Publishing! I picked the name for two of my favorite gemstones which are black and clear (white) representing contrasts but also words on the page. Tourmaline is said to repel negative energy, and quartz embodies power.

What does this mean for me?

Not much will change for me immediately, as I’m still learning how to parent two entire human beings while balancing my various publishing projects, but this is the start of a big upgrade.

I’ll be publishing my books going forward under my new publishing house, but I’m also looking to expand in the future to publish works by other authors, which is huge, exciting, and a little scary! My focus will be fantasy and sci-fi, and I’m looking forward to considering calls for anthologies as well.

Additionally, all of my editing and formatting clients will now be served under the umbrella of the company.

This is a really exciting step in my publishing career, and I appreciate everyone who has been there for me during this journey. I’ve learned a lot and can’t wait to grow some more.

Clean Fiction Blog Tour: The Alchemyst’s Mirror

Clean Fiction Blog Tour: The Alchemyst’s Mirror

Hello and welcome to today’s stop on the Clean Fiction Blog Tour!

Sit down and enjoy a cup of tea with me as I tell you about my book, The Alchemyst’s Mirror!

First of all, why do I write “clean fiction”?

Because I want my stories to be available for anyone to read them. I want to share my fantastic worlds, and my fierce heroines with as many people who want to read them!

Today I’m going to share the story of Petra and Maisie Everturn, whose brother has gone missing while looking for an alchemycal artifact. Petra and Maisie run Everturn’s Finest Tea Shoppe, which was left to them by their parents, who both disappeared on an expedition to a far off land years ago.

When their brother Jiordan goes missing too, the sisters are determined to find him. But they soon discover he was searching for a highly dangerous artifact called the Alchemyst’s Mirror, and has entangled himself in a world of danger, mystery, and secret societies.

The sisters must work to find Jiordan or the mirror, before the mysterious alchemyst’s society finds them first.

It’s a story set in a steampunk setting, of family, mystery, adventure, and–my favorite–tea.

The Arcera Trilogy Cover Redesign Reveal

The Arcera Trilogy Cover Redesign Reveal

Lately, I’ll say to my husband, “guess what I’m working on?”
And he’ll reply…
“New book covers again?”

Yep. You got me.

My Arcera Trilogy covers were still not right, so I decided to take another look at them. So today I’m sharing with you a new cover reveal!

I’m really in love with these covers, all featuring a silhouette of Sylvia! Most of them feature scenes from the wilds, except for book #2–the location of which I won’t mention, because, spoilers!

Keep scrolling to see the first paperback of Meadowcity with the new cover. And you can get the trilogy in ebook, paperback, or audiobook with these lovely new covers.

* * *
He wants to forge a new empire, at any cost.
And she’s the only one standing in his way.

Professional adventurer Sylvia Thorne just wants to travel through the wilds between cities for a living, but when the governor of Skycity declares war on her home, she must embark on a quest that will determine the fate of the Four Cities forever.

And if she’s not careful, it won’t be just her life she’s risking—but everyone in Meadowcity.

Governor Sorin Greyling of Skycity is obsessed with knowledge. When he discovers the Four Cities’ darkest secret, he’ll stop at nothing to obtain the knowledge and power that has remained hidden for centuries.

Will Sorin’s discovery make him a legendary leader? Or will it drive him down a dark path of destruction?
