Welcome to yet another Weekend Writing Warriors.

And, yes, my friends, your eyes do not deceive you, the new Antique Magic novel, MOURNING DOVE LOCKET, is here! 🙂 So what are Caitlin and company up to this time? Here’s a little taste of the book in 8 lines. A little set up, a teenaged girl has come up to Caitlin in a thrift store and offered her a gold locket, now she’s checking with the mother to make certain she has permission to offer it…or that’s the plan, anyway, until the teen opens her mouth:

 

A woman of clear Hispanic descent stood [at a display], perusing [some] items. Caitlin approached her yet her daughter made the introductions. “Mom, she’ll give Abuela her necklace.” Continue reading “What mysteries will Caitlin find in the palm of a teen’s hand? #new #paranormal snippet #8sunday”

Weekend Writing Warriors #1: WATCHMAKER’S HEART

(This is an old post circa May, 2016) Entering a new snippet blog hop, this week.  This week’s excerpt for Weekend Writing Warriors is from my novel Watchmaker’s Heart. A little glimpse at Cora’s first hint of the (possible) new man in our heroine Phoebe’s life.

Available on Amazon.

 

 

Watchmaker's Heart by Juli D. Revezzo, Steampunk romance
“Mortimer,” Cora muttered.

Phoebe nodded.

“So, to top everything, you’ve already memorized his first name and what he does for a living?” Cora said.

“Yes. He thinks the goddess [ed note: Phoebe’s diffuser] will work,” she said. “Even suggested I give it to—”

She glanced to Cora’s chaperone, strolling ahead, and clamped her mouth shut.

“Who?” Cora demanded.

Phoebe gulped. “I forget.”

Cora’s light eyes lit with mirth. “You do not! Tell me everything!”

She waved a hand, batting the conversation away. “No one important.”

“Important or exotic enough to make you uncomfortable.”

 

 

Who did Mortimer suggest and why does it make Phoebe uncomfortable? You’ll have to read WATCHMAKER’S HEART to find out! 🙂

Genre: Historical Romance with Steampunk elements.

Synopsis:

 

 London, 1898: For Miss Phoebe Lockswell, fashionable London tea parties and balls aren’t her style. Instead, she prefers to tinker tirelessly with a clockwork diffuser she’s built from scratch. If only she can get the invention to work on command, she might earn her way out of an arranged marriage to a repugnant member of the House of Commons.

London watchmaker Mortimer Kidd was brought up hard in the arms of an infamous London gang. Despite the respectability he strives for now, the gang leader is blackmailing him. When Mortimer sees Phoebe’s diffuser, he thinks he’s found a way to buy himself out of trouble. The brash Phoebe manages to steal his heart, however, before he can purloin her invention.

Will Mortimer’s unsavory past catch up to him before he convinces Phoebe of his devotion? Worse, once Phoebe learns the truth, will she ever trust him again?

Friday News and Reviews

News, well…There’s not much news to report. I’ve been working on revising a novel for release, I hope in another month, but we shall see. Also, as you can see, I’ve had lots of fun hosting guests. I hope you haven’t missed any of them. In the meantime,  another review popped up for Changeling’s Crown:

“Changeling’s Crown by Juli D. Revezzo is a delightfully light fantasy romance filled with humor, an endearing heroine and a darkly fascinating hero….Fun, fast, filled with light humor, a taste of darkness and just the right touch of magic, kind of makes you forget that Ianthe DID have a job to do!”~ Di, Tome Tender

Thank you, Di! I’m pleased you enjoyed CHANGELING’S CROWN.

Changeling's Crown, fantasy romanceWhen Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again.

After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.

But why?

Worse, she definitely doesn’t need an attractive mortal man distracting her from her duties. Of course, needs and wants are two different things.

Briak has had his eye on Ianthe for a very, very long time, but he’s been waiting for just the right moment to make his move.

Despite the fact all hell’s about to break loose on his watch, he can’t resist the opportunity to insert himself into her earthly assignment. Can he convince Ianthe of her true calling and thereby win her heart? Or will his subterfuge ultimately cost him her love?

Available at: Amazon, Barnes and Noble more through this one stop link, and in paperback.
