new book release

Hope and the Clever Man, the second book in Mike Reeves-McMillan‘s steampunk-fantasy series The Gryphon Clerks, is now available from Amazon. From the blurb:

An act of powerful magic in a moment of rage almost destroys Hope’s magical career before it starts, leaving her even more determined to prove her worth. Her chance comes when she’s assigned to work for the eccentric inventor known as the Clever Man. The magical technology they create together could change the course of a war and help an oppressed people plan their revolution, but wealthy and powerful interests will fight to put it down any way they can.

New book deal

Darusha Wehm has signed a book deal with Bundoran Press Publishing House. Ms. Wehm’s new novel “The Wheel” (working title) is set aboard a vast space station orbiting Jupiter where political exiles from Earth and network- based Artificial Intelligences struggle to forge a new life and a new society. The book explores the limits of human freedom within a civil society and the true nature of love. The Wheel is tentatively scheduled for release in November 2014.
