New Release: Ghost Is the New Normal #ya #fantasy

We’re excited to announce the next installment in Lee’s young adult urban fantasy series, Spirit Knights.

The ebook is currently in pre-order until March 21, the official release date. Until the 22nd, the ebook is only 99 cents.

If you’re new to the series, this book has massive spoilers. So massive we can’t offer an excerpt without spoiling something. It all begins in book 1, Girls Can’t Be Knights, an action/adventure story about ghost hunting in Portland and a mentor/apprentice relationship that becomes a father/daughter dynamic.

The series is available in print, ebook, and audiobook. The audiobook for Ghost Is the New Normal releases on March 28th.

Clever readers may notice some overlap on the dates. Jeff and Lee will be handling all these shows, sometimes splitting up to divide and conquer.

Our new release schedule is in flux right now, with only one confirmed date so far for 2017. But stay tuned, because we have a bunch of stuff in progress already, and we’re looking forward to another busy year.

Next events: August is Busy!

Jeff and Lee are about to set out on a massive road trip adventure across the scorching Midwest.

August 4-7–First stop: Indianapolis for GenCon! Lee used to go to GenCon as an attendee back when it was held in Milwaukee, and she returned last year for the first time in *mumble* years as an author in Author’s Avenue. This year, Clockwork Dragon is making its debut at the Best Four Days In Gaming. Sechin will also be there as often he can be dragged away from everything else.

August 12-14–Second stop: Denver for Myths & Legends Con, AKA MALCon, which falls conveniently on the weekend after GenCon.

August 17-21: Third stop: Kansas City for WorldCon, this year called MidAmericon 2. Both are looking forward to seeing old WorldCon friends and making new ones.

When all that’s over, Lee has to go home, but Jeff will stop in Sandpoint, ID for Sandemonium on August 27.

Everyone is looking forward to the pictures from all these back-to-back events!

Capital = Olympia is the state capital of Washington

Indie = Indie authors! Some are also traditionally published, but everyone will have at least one indie title

Con = A convergence. Of all things indie, book, and awesome.

Bus routes 41 and 48 both go to Evergreen State. Parking is free across the entire campus.

New Release: Unnatural Dragons #scifi #anthology

CDAnthology1ECoverThe authors of Clockwork Dragon–Jeff, Lee, Lindsay, and Sechin–present our first group anthology. This collection of four stories was constructed around the them of “dragon.” But that alone isn’t enough. And because we can’t do anything the easy way, each story had to be a science fiction tale.

The result? Aliens, genetic modification, superheroes, the past, the future…

…and hope.

Includes a new Maze Beset story and a new Mad Science Institute story.

Available exclusively on Amazon.

New Release: Ethereal Entanglements

SK3ECoverEthereal Entanglements is the third installment of Lee’s Spirit Knights young adult series. Now a full Knight, with her dagger and dragon, Claire plunges head-first into doing everything she thinks needs to be done while Justin scrambles to clean up the messes left behind in Backyard Dragons, and some new messes he didn’t expect.

Together with Drew, Claire’s possessed best friend, the trio faces lies and confusion, and steps into a millennia-old feud. The stakes are high with the fate of the world in the balance.


Claire wanted to memorize every line, but not that angry mouth. The worst she’d ever done as a child had only made him sigh with disappointment. Once, he’d let his features flicker with true anger. That time, he left the house and went for a ride on his horse rather than shout or punish her and her little brother.

She swallowed past the lump in her throat. “It’s not him,” she whispered. But she wanted it to be him as much as she wanted it not to be him. For one more chance to hug him, she would sacrifice anything. Seeing him like this scraped at the scab she’d built inside since his death, letting the hollow, empty feeling bleed out again.

Her father relaxed his stance and lowered his blade. “You have to prove yourself, Pumpkin, or you’ll never really be a Knight.”

Claire squeezed her eyes shut. Everything else faded away and she was ten years old again, holding his hand. “I don’t know how, Daddy. Every time I try–” Hot tears burned her cheeks. “All the Knights say I’m not good enough. Nothing I do here will ever be good enough.”

“You’re not trying, Pumpkin. Never trying always fails.”

She swiped her sleeve across her face, smearing streaks of damp gray dirt across it. Opening her eyes, she stood before her father, ready to let him stab her through the heart. She saw the loose dirt beneath her feet and the green light. Behind her father, Enion moved in slow motion, taking his time to position himself for a stealthy charge from behind.

This thing was not her father. Claire hung her head, ashamed of herself for letting it torture her. She knew better and Caius still got to her. “The Palace is the worst place ever. It’s supposed to be a sanctuary.”

Ethereal Entanglements is now available as a pre-order on Amazon. It releases on June 21. The series begins with Girls Can’t Be Knights.
