"Wild Cards and Iron Horses" Book Launch Party!

It's time to saddle up and get those airships aloft! Yes, folks - "Wild Cards and Iron Horses releases in a few hours from Samhain Publishing!




First, the blurb and excerpt - but keep on reading to find out about the giveaway!

Their love rides on a spring and a prayer…

During the recent Civil War, a soldier risked his life to save Jonathan Handleston—and lost. With the help of an advanced metal brace on his crippled hand, Jon now travels from one poker tournament to the next, determined to earn enough money to repay the man’s debt.

Prosperity Ridge is supposed to be the last stop on his quest, but his brace is broken and he needs an engineer to repair the delicate mechanisms. The only one available is Samantha Weatherly, a beautiful anomaly in a world ruled by men.

Sam is no fool. Jon is no different from any other gambler—except for his amazing prosthetic. Despite a demanding project to win a critical contract to develop an iron horse, she succumbs to the lure of working on the delicate mechanisms. And working with the handsome Englishman.

Like a spring being coiled, Samantha and Jon are inexorably drawn together. Sam begins to realize honor wears many faces, and she becomes the light at the end of Jon’s journey to redemption. The only monkey wrench is Victor, a rival gambler who will stop at nothing to make sure Jon misses the tournament. Even destroy Jon’s and Sam’s lives.

Now available at Samhain Publishing, Amazon.com and coming soon to other fine ebookstores!

But wait, there's more!

I'm going to give away a copy of "Wild Cards and Iron Horses" to one lucky person - all you have to do is post a reply to this post before Thursday, August 12th at 9:00 pm EST.

But wait...

IF I receive more than twenty posts, I'll toss in a paperback copy of my most favorite steampunk/gaslamp fantasy series, Girl Genius!



Volume 7 - Agatha Heterodyne and the Voice of the Castle

Jump into this Hugo-winning series feet-first and you won't be disappointed!

BUT... you only get the ebook and the paperback if I get more than twenty responses to this post!

So who wants to grab the next airship for the Wild Wild West?
