Lee’s Harper Revolution series continues in book 2, Crawlspace, releasing next Tuesday. If you missed it, book 1 is Porcelain, a young adult space opera portal fantasy with aliens, wormholes, eating disorders, laser guns, grief, space ships, and low self-esteem.
Emma now knows she has a problem. It’s time to figure out what that means and how to solve it. The path to healthy eating is a long, twisty one sometimes made easier (and also harder) by the existence of ration bars.
Lee anticipates releasing book 3 next fall, and has managed to get a prequel, Defiance, included in the Rogue Skies box set, which is currently available for pre-order for 99 cents on iBooks, Kobo, and Nook. Hopefully, she’ll have books 4 and 5 out in 2020 to complete the series!
We’re excited to announce our first professional anthology featuring stories by Jody Lynn Nye, Raven Oak, Robyn Bennis, and many others, including our own Jeffrey Cook and Katherine Perkins.
Lee edited this volume with help from Sarah Craft, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. The stories within feature women and girls defying their labels to save the day on their own, thank you very much.
Swords, Sorcery, & Self-Rescuing Damsels releases on April 16, 2019, in print, ebook, and audiobook formats and is available at on all major online outlets.
We’re proud to announce the next book set in the Fair Folk universe, You’re Not A Real Goth Until You Sack Rome. Jeff and Kate have teamed up again to bring a story of Eastern European witchcraft set against the backdrop of Seattle’s 1990s goth scene.
As usual, you’ll learn something about folklore by reading this book, and we’re all excited about this new series called Gothcraft. We expect the next book, SPF 1066, soon!
While Lee recovers from her NaNoWriMo hangover, Nikki studies for midterms, and Sechin prepares for a different kind of midterms, Jeff is still out gallivanting across the region. Last weekend saw him at Victorian Country Christmas in Puyallup.
Next weekend, Jeff will be at Alterna-Steam in Seattle. Everyone was bummed about the Steamposium cancellation, and this is what some folks managed to put together to make up for it. We hope you’ll show up and support the effort.
After that, Jeff heads down to Portland for his annual appearance at Geek the Halls.
And then, the long, slow breath before the next year of shows begins. Our first show of 2019 will be Orcacon once again, in Bellevue. We hope they can return to Everett someday so Sechin can come!
Here’s a blast from the past in the form of Business Deadpool holding Jeff and Lee’s hats at Norwescon a few years ago. You may remember us posting these images on Twitter for a solid year. Then Deadpool lost his popularity as a cosplay choice and we haven’t seen many since.
We still love all the old pics, though. Since they were never put up on the blog here, we’ll be posting them in random order with news updates in the year to come.
Happy holidays from the Clockwork Dragon crew. We hope to see you at a show this year. Make sure you say hi to Dwago! He loves attention.
Nikki’s latest book, Dark Hope of the Dragons, is the start of a new fantasy series.
Dragons! Fantasy! Subterfuge! Tyranny! Revolution! All the things you love most about fantasy come together in this amazing story. We’re already in love with it, and hope you enjoy it too.
Our Patreon backers have had a copy of this book since a few weeks before it released. Have you considered backing us to streamline the delivery of our books to you? Only $5 per month gets you a minimum of 6 ebooks per year, every year, delivered straight to you with no delay or fuss. Before they’re released.
So much has happened, and so much is about to happen.
*takes a deep breath*
Since Spirit Knights book 5, we’ve released:
Hideous Progeny: Horror Goes Punk (stories by Jeff and Lee are included)
Porcelain by Lee
Nova Ranger Academy by Lee and Jeff
Our Patreon patrons have gotten advance e-copies of all these books. Join up at the $5+ levels to get all the books into your book hole as efficiently as possible. We expect to give our patrons a minimum of 6 books per year, and that patronage helps us with the costs of doing all the shows so we can get you more signed books! (Side note: because they’re novellas and have a fair amount of objectionable content, Lee’s Darkside Seattle books aren’t included in the Patreon.)
Coming for sure before the end of the year:
Dark Hope of the Dragons by Nikki
You’re Not a Real Goth Until You’ve Sacked Rome by Jeff
The Greatest Sin #6 by Lee
Darkside Seattle: Hacker by Lee
We’ve been at a bunch of conventions and shows, including Emerald City Comicon, Norwescon, and Gencon. Wen-Con in Wenatchee is becoming one of our favorite places to visit for an excellent one-day show with excellent people.
We hope to see you at an upcoming show. The list is kept as current as possible in the sidebar. Our next appearance is Dragonflight in Bellevue, WA.
