Another Prism Award And USA Today Interview!

What an incredible week! My new 3 book deal for a Gaslamp Fantasy series with Tor / Macmillan was announced, I found out that The Perilous Prophecy of Guard and Goddess won the 2012 Prism Award for Best Fantasy Romance (my fourth Prism) and a video interview I did in April at the RT Convention with USA Today is now posted on USA Today's Happily Ever After! I talk DARKER STILL: A Novel of Magic Most Foul, what you can expect in THE TWISTED TRAGEDY OF MISS NATALIE STEWART and why I write Gothic Victoriana!

Announcing A New Book Deal: New Gaslamp Fantasy Saga with TOR!

Ladies and Gents it is that exciting time when I am now officially allowed to announce a whole new series!

I am beside-myself-thrilled to announce a new 3 book deal with a publisher I have always wanted to work with, Tor Books, Fantasy imprint of Macmillan.

Introducing the ETERNA FILES (working series title): A quirky, character-driven Gaslamp Fantasy saga set in 1882 New York and London, following two eccentric, unclassified governmental agencies during a paranormal arms race for immortality between the US and England.

Yes, I am blessed to remain in my very favourite time period and in my very favourite setting: a Victorian paranormal adventure driven by a madcap cast of characters. My three series are parallel worlds, so stay tuned for ways in which my other worlds may pass subtly through the Eterna Files, and prepare yourself for a big new cast of zany, gifted, odd and indomitable agents from New York and across the pond, positing two secret bureaus in the early days of America and England's national security service agencies. I'm having such fun with them already.

I'm not sure about release date for Eterna's Book 1, but you can experience an upcoming character in Queen Victoria's Book of Spells: A Collection of Gaslamp Fantasy (March 2013 from Tor) with Eterna likely launching sometime fall 2013.

Huge thanks to my readers and supporters, without you I wouldn't be able to make such an announcement! I do hope you'll stay tuned for future updates, also, within the next month or so I hope to have the first Strangely Beautiful book up for re-release. So a lot of exciting things are coming down the pike as I prepare for the release of The Twisted Tragedy of Miss Natalie Stewart in November!

Cheers and blessings!

Abraham BLEEPING Lincoln

I cannot source this image other than my author friend
Barb Ferrer who posted it on Twitter.
While this scene is NOT in the film, it makes me LOL a lot.
FILM REVIEW: Okay, so don't go see Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter if you want to actually learn anything about the Civil War. However, do go see it if you want to have a ridiculously good time.

My take on the film is up today over at CRIMINAL ELEMENT, please go check it out.
