And Now For Something Completely Different: IRON GUNS, BLAZING HEARTS

I’m excited to share that I’ve contracted an ebook with Lyrical Press!

IRON GUNS, BLAZING HEARTS is a category length Western steampunk romance (release date TBA).

Here’s the premise in a nutshell:

TRUE GRIT gets steampunk’d when Violet Whitcomb, an inventor’s daughter, joins forces with dangerous outlaw Logan McCoy and an automaton gunslinger to rescue her father from the clutches of an evil overlord known as the Iron Scorpion.

Think: a modern-day penny dreadful.

I’ll have an official blurb and more for you in the near future. Stay tuned! In the meantime, what I can tell you is that this story features action-adventure romance, weird west steampunk fun, and a “sweet” heat level—as in, 100% sweet!

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: digital publishing means creative freedom. Not only has Lyrical Press been seeking steampunk romance for some time, but they are also open to all kinds of heat levels. Incidentally, I entered this manuscript in Lyrical’s recent advance contest, which led to a contract--all in about one month.

I’m looking forward to entertaining you with this story!

Joyfully yours,


P.S. Did I mention there’s an automaton gunslinger in the story?!
