Don’t look at your calendar, my chuckaboos. You’re right, this is not Wednesday. I couldn’t wait to let you know that I have a new novelette. With your encouragement, I finished the story I told you about last week!
I even made a video trailer for this whimsical steampunk-Victorian tale.
People in the Steam Era sent valentines to friends as well as family and lovers. The darn things cost a small fortune these days. How often do you see a charming valentine for just 99 cents? Not to mention that this valentine includes more than an hour of fun (depending on how fast you read). As of this writing, Amazon has not yet released the paperback, but the Kindle version is ready.

Put your feet up and enjoy a whimsical break with this quick, lighthearted story. There’s some romance, and a lot of silliness. This is a tale of an old lost valentine and the shenanigans that ensue when it turns up. Fiona Finch and her brother Steele – along with a helping “wing” from Quellie the duck, work to bring two long ago sweethearts back together. Even though it is a Valentine’s Day story, it does not include sex or passionate romance. It does, however, include a lot of imaginative fun.
My post last week included a generous snippet, so I’ll only share a tidbit today.
There was a bit of drizzle that might well become a harder rain. However, that wasn’t my reason for picking up the special umbrella Steele had created.
I opened my French doors and stepped out onto the balcony and looked down at the street forty feet below. The trolley was very near. I climbed over the railing. When I pressed the little catch, the umbrella opened. I shifted a lever near the top. Propellers lifted up from the fabric and started to spin. I jumped away from the balcony and…
Quellie is “in the pink” and tries to take over for Cupid
Thanks for visiting. Hugs on the wing!
