October news and updates


For October the Historical Fantasy Bookclub is reading JACKABY by William Ritter

Newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892, and in need of a job, Abigail Rook meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a keen eye for the extraordinary–including the ability to see supernatural beings. Abigail has a gift for noticing ordinary but important details, which makes her perfect for the position of Jackaby’s assistant. On her first day, Abigail finds herself in the midst of a thrilling case: A serial killer is on the loose. The police are convinced it’s an ordinary villain, but Jackaby is certain the foul deeds are the work of the kind of creature whose very existence the local authorities–with the exception of a handsome young detective named Charlie Cane–seem adamant to deny.

Chicken Scratchings

After what seems like an extraordinarily long hiatus (due to horse, health and saddle fit issues) I am FINALLY back riding aside. The only problem is that after such a long break my leg turned to jello in about 5 minutes flat. I need to get my sidesaddle fitness back plus some core strength as its so important to sit up straight and tall. Sidesaddle riders don’t slouch!


Exley’s Expeditions

All is quiet in the reader group. I still run my monthly paperback giveaway and I am hoping to have news about Dawn’s Promise in the next month or so. I have been working with a developmental editor to address the issues that bothered me and I’ve broken through the blockade and its starting to come together. I’m quietly excited about this world as I have a long series planned for 2019 and beyond that I *hope* will be a suitable replacement for those who enjoyed the Artifact Hunters ;)
