News: December 2014

Now out: the first book in The Change series, Stranger, about which Kirkus said, A first-rate page turner that leaves its own compelling afterimage. The next book, Hostage, will get a sneak preview release next month. This one ups the stakes exponentially.

Published in September: Rondo Allegro, a historical romance that begins in Naples, and takes my heroine to post-revolutionary France. She ends up at the battle of Trafalgar (which women indeed were involved in) and after tackling war, she tackles marriage.

My co-writer on The Change Series, Rachel Manija Brown, and I are going to be Guests of Honor at ConDFW in Dallas, Texas, Feb. 13-15, 2015.

Working on: Lhind the Spy, and (working title) Firejive, which comes after A Sword Named Truth. This latter, I hope, should be trundling its way toward publication in July. I saw preliminary sketches for the cover art when I was in New York in September. Awesome! Also working on the third book in The Change series, Rebel


The novella "Rule of Engagement" appears in the August issue of Lightspeed.

Recently published: Trade paperback, Lhind the Thief, A Posse of Princesses , and Sartor, sequel to Spy Princess, which is out in paperback from Viking, and Scholastic.

The all-women science fiction and fantasy anthology Athena's Daughters; my contribution is about old ladies who get powers, called "Commando Bats."

Why I link my books here whenever I can

BVC was formed by a bunch of writers as a cooperative publishing effort. Books offered cross all genres, from science fiction to romance to historical to mainstream. We function as editors, copyeditors, formatters, cover artists, and site maintainers. We offer both reprints (currently in e-form, but we're looking at print options) and new books. 95% of the proceeds go to the authors! That means that the author actually earns most of the money you pay, instead of publishers and big venues like Amazon, B&N, and iTunes.

Here is our latest offering, and this is my bookshelf.
