The first Iron Seas story is now available as a standalone ebook!
Some of you might have already read this story in the anthology BURNING UP — but for those of you who missed Eben and Ivy’s story, or who would like to have it in a convenient ebook format, it’s finally out!
This novella is one of my personal favorites — not only did it kick off the Iron Seas steampunk romance series, it was one of those stories that just came together perfectly. No fighting the plot or characters; they were all just magic together. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it! Here’s a little more about Here There Be Monsters:
Desperate to leave London, two years ago Ivy Blacksmith secured her overseas passage by striking a provocative bargain with the domineering pirate Mad Machen. Saved from his bed at the last moment, Ivy fled the city, but Mad Machen vowed to come after her…
Eking out a living in the little town of Fool’s Cove, Ivy never expected that her impetuous offer would continue to haunt her. But the beautiful blacksmith owes Mad Machen the price of a voyage, and the pirate captain is determined to collect.
Includes a preview of Meljean Brook’s The Kraken King.
“Here There Be Monsters” previously appeared in Burning Up.
