2019 was huge for my publishing career, and 2020 is shaping up to be pretty awesome, too. As you may have seen in my last post about the Mistress of None series, No Rest for the Wicked won First Place in Gaslamp Fantasy at this year’s Pencraft Awards. I’ve just completed my revisions of the next book in the series and sent the manuscript off to the publisher. I’m thrilled to tell you Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained is coming your way August 27, 2020 from Black Rose Writing!
Here’s the blurb:
There are many types of monsters; Vi just hopes she isn’t one of them.
Now that medium and con woman Viola Thorne has been flushed out of hiding, she must dodge old marks and protect new allies while grappling with her ever-growing psychic abilities. On her way south to root out the clandestine organization that murdered her partner, she and her traveling companions (both living and dead) are drawn into a mystery surrounding a burlesque troupe aboard an old flame’s steamship.
To get close to the suspects, Vi joins the show and is thrust back into the spotlight. Solving this case might be her next step toward redemption, but both mundane and supernatural forces are working against her at every turn. All aboard for wily women, fractured friendships, and ghosts galore in this paranormal adventure down the mighty Mississippi.
I’m going to start posting some teasers as we get closer to launch day, so stay tuned for a sneak peek inside the pages of Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained and check out the first book in the series to get yourself ready. No Rest for the Wicked is available in ebook, print, and audio formats.
