Pre-order book two in the Gears, Cogs, and Puppy Dogs series

It’s been a while coming, but a new book in Vesta and Henry’s world of the Republic of Texas is about to arrive. Currently, the ebook is in pre-order and will release April 21, 2022.

When last we saw them, they were just beginning to fall in love, and leaving Britain for Vesta’s hometown in Texas. Vesta also had a huge assignment for Queen Victoria. Where are they now? Let’s see….

Synopsis:

A year ago, Vesta Bartlett received a rather unusual assignment.
Now, as if perfecting her clockwork puppies for Queen Victoria weren’t enough, a surprise invitation to present them to the Texas Republic president makes Vesta question a number of things, including will the president accept the clockwork from a woman? Unsure, she agrees to allow Henry to go along, as her spokesman and husband, regardless of how her father may feel about a fake marriage.
But they have bigger problems than her father’s anger when an anti-alchemist group takes issue with her clockwork creations and decide they need to stop Vesta’s work. By any means, no matter how violent.

Snippet from Chapter One:

Henry paid for the supplies he’d come for, and once again drew the shopkeeper aside for a private word. When they finished, Henry led Vesta outside.
Here, they found two girls, one surely sixteen waiting impatiently for a sister younger than herself who ran after a brass-skinned dog, no taller than her ankle. The girls saw them and the youngest waved. “Thank you, Miss Vesta. I love my puppy.” She looked down at the brass dog. “Go on, girl. Go say hello.”
The automaton paused, then trotted up to Vesta and knelt down at her feet. Vesta smiled and patted the solid brass head, the small spines of brass that made up its fur tickling her palm. “Good afternoon, Moonbeam.” She looked to the little girl. “You decided to name it so, if I recall, Miss Shafer?”
“Yes, Miss.”
“And no problems with your pet?”
“None at all,” the girl said.
“Though,” her sister said, “Daddy wondered what to do if the tank goes empty.”
Vesta pulled a small pad from her reticule. “I’ll send some of its fuel over to you.”
Miss Shafer curtseyed, and ran off, the dog at her heels. Her older sister dipped her head. “I’m sorry my sister bothered you.”
“Oh.” Vesta waved a hand. “It’s no bother at all.”
The elder Miss Shafer nodded again before departing with a polite, “Good day, Miss Bartlett.”
When Vesta returned home, she handed her father the race flier. “I think I could win this, don’t you?”
“Are you going to keep one of your puppies back from the queen?”
Looking to their forge, she considered. Can I? No. “No, I can’t. I promised her fifty.”
“You’re right. She wouldn’t be happy with you if you send forty-nine.” He pulled out a carton where they kept their ingots. “I guess you’d better make one more.”

Iron Paws and the Tinker’s Forged Marriage (Gears, Cogs, and Puppy Dogs, book 2) will release on April 21. You can get it today for a special low price of $.99.

New review for Druid Defiance

I just found this lovely quote on the Tome Tender blog:

Review: “(In Druid Defiance) Ms. Revezzo has added another great tale to this series and shored up each character with more depth. In the battle of good versus evil, who will win, the forces of darkness or the Steward who could go Bridezilla on them all?”  5 Stars  ~Dii, Tome Tender.

Thank you, Dii! 🙂

If you’d like to check Druid Defiance out, of course, it is (along with the entire series and related books) available at Amazon. I hope y’all will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

A New Antique Magic story for Christmas

Yes, the sixth story in the Antique Magic series just sort of (and sort of not) came out of the blue.

(Before you ask, no, this isn’t the book I was yakking about writing all last month. This is–what started out as–a flash fiction piece that I wrote for an indie blog hop last year. I took it, this year and reworked it into a longer edition which is what’s now available for download. It’s called A Light Yule Problem, and the synopsis is as follows:

New Antique Magic story for Christmas, fantasy stories, urban fantasy, Christmas, A Light Yule Problem by Juli D. Revezzo

Synopsis:

The holidays are approaching, the busiest time of the year for Caitlin and Trevor’s antique store. Their goals for the solstice are set and they’re looking forward to a quiet break, if only the enchanted things in their shop, and of the Otherworld will let them have it. Sometimes Christmas really does bring magic! But what kind is it, this time?

If you’d like to check it out, it’s available at several e-retailers for free, via Smashwords for free during their year end sale, and I’ve put it on sale via draft2digital at Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and it should be up at Itunes shortly (I hope). You can find all those at this link.

Or if you’d like to support the author with a few pennies Amazon tosses her way, Amazon hasn’t price-matched it so it’s $.99 there. It’s just a little short that I hope you might enjoy. Have a wonderful Yule and Christmas!

After Nanowrimo

I did it!

Or maybe that should be you did it.


Congrats! You did the hard part of putting your butt in the chair, your fingers on the keyboard and kept them there consistently, day in day out, for a whole month. And now you have a full manuscript. That’s awesome! Good job.


Or maybe you find you are approaching a full manuscript, but haven’t finished and you’re thinking “Uh oh! I didn’t finish my project during Nanowrimo. Now what?”

This is the tough part. Because the problem with Nanowrimo is it can make you feel like a real winner, if you manage to put that 50,000 words into their site, but it can make you feel like a real loser if you hit only 30 or 40k. Or if you hit 50k and haven’t finished your story because it’s just not done or you hit some wall in the plot you can’t figure a way around. This is where most Nano-ers stop writing in despair.

But the cool part of being a writer is, if you are a writer and not just a dabbler, you take a breath, and get back into the fray and finish the darned thing. Because if you’re a writer, you’re going to write. There are no two ways about it.

So what do you do after Nanowrimo ends?

Nano day 30

And…. finally, just to wrap up the month, I put my final tally of AM6 in last night and (apparently, my math sucks or I forgot a day’s posting to the actual Nano site!) My final word count for the month according to their calculations was 59,819.

Nearly 60k. (The completist in me wishes I could’ve pushed it over to a round 60k!) The book isn’t finished yet. Almost, but not quite. Still, it’s better than what I had at the beginning of the month and a semblance of something I think fans of that series are going to like! As it stands, it’s not ready to release yet, but stay tuned (or join my newsletter!) for news of its release.

I hope y’all had a productive month! 🙂
