Another book on my shelf.

It's here!

I got my first delivery of 'Where's Holmes?' the absent Sherlock anthology by Queensland group, Specul8. My story, Mrs Hudson Investigates, is in it. A paid gig!

I have a few copies available for anyone living in Adelaide or you can buy them via Amazon or Book Depository.

So now I have another book to add to my brag shelf. Squee.

Inspiration

12.55 am – and a sudden flash of inspiration is scribbled in the dark while I’m half asleep. Now I have to decipher it. #amwriting

Don’t panic if my books are ‘unavailable’ online for a day or so – I’m just updating the cover blurb. #writing

Hi everyone,

Another convention has come and gone. My new book was available. There were lots of amazing costumes, I science-squee’d over Dr Karl, met some Aussie authors and caught up with friends. There’s even a video.

 

   

Katie, Kylie and I all had our third book just published. 

And the promised con video:

Hi everyone.

This week I got my first ever book box – the first produced by Never Never Book Box. I did a book box opening vid. Lots of fun – just like Christmas!

You can find more of my videos on my YouTube channel.


Illusioneer Update and a Bonus Short Story

Originally published at karen j carlisle. You can comment here or there.

Good morning Dear Reader,

There’s been a lot happening over the past few weeks. First, an update on ‘The Illusioneer & Other Tales’, then a link to a bonus (so far unpublished) short story of mine.

The manuscript for Viola’s last set of adventures, The Illusioneer & Other Tales, is completed and edited. The galley was proofread by my busy elves.

Now the final page count was finalised, I could format the cover spread.
Both were sent to the printer and I’m waiting for a proof copy before I can order the first box.

The Illusioneer’s ISBN has been allocated and it’s now listed on the National Library database (Trove/CiP). This is what it will look like on your shelf with the others <shameless plug>.

But there’s more:

a bonus excerpt – the first chapter of my next steampunk adventure series, ‘The Department of Curiosities‘ – with new characters and a new look.
(The story starts in 1883 and is set in the same alternative world as ‘The Adventures of Viola Stewart’.)

I bought a new ring to mark the end of my first steampunk mystery series – one stone for each book.

This month’s Bonus:

Penny, from The Adventures of Messrs Smith and Skarry, asked me for a short story. It will feature on her blog this week.
