The big news! This is the secret group project I haven’t been able to share with you. My Australian steampunk novella “Clockwork Gold” is part of an anthology of steampunk adventurers with big name authors in steampunk: Lindsay Buroker! Shelley Adina! AW Exley! Melanie Karseck! — yes, really! I give you … SKYRIDERS.
Intrigue and airships…
These five novels will take you on soaring adventures set around the globe.
A reckless ship-racer with a shattered past finds herself at the heart of an ancient mystery in Melanie Karsak’s The Star Garden.
In Lindsay Buroker’s Balanced on the Blade’s Edge, the last remaining guardian-sorcerer must enlist the aid of an impulsive colonel to find her bonded soulblade… and must avoid death at that same colonel’s hands.
A young woman inherits priceless artifacts and a world of danger in Nefertiti’s Heart by A. W. Exley.
Shelley Adina’s Lady of Devices will take you to Victorian London, where a young woman loses her place in high society only to find a new path to her future in the underworld.
And in Western Australia, a messenger pilot must navigate a lawless land as well as her own heart in Clockwork Gold by Jenny Schwartz.
These five exciting reads are geared towards adventure and ready to fly!

A werewolf in London romance.
Liz Jekyll might be the most wanted werewolf in London—wanted for dating, that is—but she doesn’t take it as a compliment. In fact, it’s a wretched nuisance because Liz has a vital secret to hide. What she needs is a disinterested werewolf who could pretend to be her boyfriend.
Carson Erving would be very interested in Liz if it weren’t for Gentiana Aeternae. The botanist werewolf from Alabama has found the legendary Elixir Gentian, and ruthless people will do anything, kill anyone, to get their hands on a plant that can grant an extra hundred years of life.
As danger explodes around them, two very independent werewolves will have to do the unthinkable and rely on one another. But when Liz’s secret is revealed, who will die?
Doctor Wolf is at a special release price of 99c. From May 20, it’ll be $2.99 (although free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers to borrow), so hurry!
Going forward, novels in my paranormal romance series, The Collegium, will be priced at $2.99. Earlier in the year I committed to keeping them at 99c throughout 2016. Demon Hunter, the first in the series and a novella, will remain at 99c. New releases will also launch at 99c as an incentive to buy-buy-buy on pre-order and in the first two weeks. However, after that the price has to be dragged up to $2.99. The reason? Amazon.
I just read someone’s analysis of Amazon’s algorithms and while no one outside Amazon can confirm the analysis (and no one inside Amazon will do so) it is compelling. The bit that caught my attention was that Amazon sinks 99c books in its algorithmic searches.
But! you exclaim. I see lots of 99c books in my search results.
Yes. So do I. But looking at the sales data for my books in the context of other people’s sales data and analysis of their book promotion strategies, I can tell you that pricing the series at 99c is seriously hurting its discoverability.
So, because I like to be upfront about these things, that is my reason for reluctantly increasing the price of novels in my Collegium series to $2.99.
Doctor Wolf is currently 99c on pre-order before its April 27 release, and will remain at 99c for a fortnight after it.
I’ve included my collection of short stories, Dare, in Patty Jansen’s super-duper Free Science Fiction and Fantasy promotion this weekend. If you’re looking for a few new (and free) fantastic reads, join me in my one-click frenzy!
If you’ve been waiting for Liz’s story (Steve’s sister) then be happy! It’s nearly here. Doctor Wolf is out 27 April, and available for pre-order now.
I’ve tried out three covers and finally settled on this one. I love it the most, even if it doesn’t match the rest of the series.
If you’re curious about the covers for The Collegium series, I’m keeping quiet about the news (cool stuff, but takes a few months to organise), but I have shared it in The Collegium Facebook group.

You can bleed and die banishing a demon, but Fay Olwen discovers there are worse hurts. Betrayed by the Collegium and by her father, she must build a new life away from New York. Leopard-shifter Steve Jekyll would have her build it with him. But loyalties are never simple and new love never easy. When demons are unleashed, Fay tracks the evil back to the Collegium, and now all hell will break loose because Fay fights for the innocent, and Steve will protect what is his.
For fans of kick-ass heroines and shifter heroes who are alpha-male and sinfully sexy.
