I love Australian history. I even studied it at university. You can not believe how blessed I feel to have the chance to share stories that take our history and give it a fun, thoughtful twist. I’m having a wonderful time writing The Bustlepunk Chronicles.
“Courting Trouble” releases today, and to celebrate, I’m sharing some Australiana. I love my country, its freedom and beauty, and I want to share some of my joy. Believe me, today, on Release Day, I have lots of joy to go around.
To win the cards and giftcard set, plus a digital copy of “Courting Trouble”, please leave a comment. The contest is open internationally.
Swan River Colony, Australia, 1895
All suffragette Esme Smith wants is respect. Her beau, American inventor Jed Reeve, may be more enlightened than most men, but lately his need to protect her is at odds with her need for independence. Esme begins to wonder if a modern woman can share her life with a man without losing some of herself.
With his courtship of Esme stalled, the last thing Jed needs is the pressure of saving the Prince of Wales. But when blueprints for a sonic destroyer fall into his hands, he uncovers an anarchist plot that could have deadly consequences.
While investigating the threats, Jed is determined to keep Esme out of harm’s way, despite her protests. But when the terrorists capture Jed and demand a priceless emerald in exchange for his life, it’s Esme who must draw on all her strength to save the day.
