- False Hearts has been shortlisted for the Bisexual Book Award! Pantomime won back in 2013 so it’s an honour to be shortlisted again.
- I was on the main Waterstones blog, talking about gender and genre.
- The first review of Shattered Minds has come through, and it’s a nice one!
- There’s a sign up sheet for the US leg of the Shattered Minds blog tour here.
- Shattered Minds is up on Netgalley for North Americans! UK one should follow soon.
- The Fifth Vestigial Tale is now up on Kindle if you didn’t participate in the Masquerade pre-order incentive. It can be read for free on Kindle Unlimited if you’re a Prime member (and I still get paid for page reads–so even if it’s not your thing, downloading and flipping through would still help me out!). It’s best read after Masquerade as a cap to the series. There’s a few Easter eggs in there.
Untold centuries ago, the Archipelago was ruled by the Alder—mysterious beings who vanished, leaving behind only scattered artefacts of unknown power, called Vestige. Sometimes, a person will be lucky or unlucky enough to discover that each piece of Vestige has its own tale to tell . . .
The Mechanical Minotaur
Evander’s father locks him in the cellar on his twelfth birthday. Their house in the Emerald Bowl is cold and empty, far from the warm home in Imachara where he lived with his parents back when his mother was alive. Yet down in the dim, dark cellar is a trunk with Evander’s name on it, and within is an automaton that says it can lead the boy back to his mother . . .
Vestigial Tales are stories set in the world of the award-winning Micah Grey series. Step behind the circus ring from Pantomime, the theatre of Shadowplay, and the court magic of Masquerade.
And that’s all for now! This will probably be the last Vestigial Tale. I’ve enjoyed writing them, and they do still sell, but not in amounts enough to justify the time away from other potentially paying projects, sadly.
I have a few more events coming up in the next few months, so I’ll do a roundup of those soon as well. Happy May!
