If you’ve been paying attention over the last few months, you know that I’ve been working on a number of different projects. Because editing and artwork tend to become a bottleneck, rather than seeing one project all the way through, I’ve been continuing on to another project just as soon as I complete the previous one. That means things get really confusing for me, since eventually I end up doing a release on a book that I’ve not had to think about for MONTHS. To that end, I’m happy to announce the pending release of last year’s NaNoWriMo project, Ichor Well.
The cover is, as always, by Nick Deligaris, and here’s the Blurb:
Ichor Well is the third adventure in the Free-Wrench Series of Steampunk novels.
Ever since Nita Graus left her homeland and joined the crew of the Wind Breaker, the reputation of the airship and its crew has been growing. The destruction of the mighty dreadnought, the escape from the legendary Skykeep, and the inexplicable ability to remain hidden from the ever-watchful eye of the Fug Folk have combined to make her and her fellow crew the stuff of legend. Alas, legendary heroes cannot exist for long without attracting a worthy villain. Luscious P. Alabaster strives to be just that foe.
While he works his nefarious plans, the crew itself is not without turmoil. Captain Mack, already having survived far more years in the hostile skies than he had any right to expect, is making plans for his golden years. The crew is gradually learning all that Nita can teach them, leaving her with the looming decision of whether or not she still has a place among the crew.
Before the matter of the future can be settled, the crew has the problems at hand to solve. And in escaping the webs woven by the cunning and eccentric Alabaster, they may discover the darkest secrets the churning and toxic Fug has to hide.
