Heartfelt thanks to everyone who got on the party bus for the launch of Atonement in Bloom! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate everyone who hosted the launch post, reblogged, allowed me to use images, and otherwise helped me promote my new novel. If you missed the launch, don’t worry. The double-decker bus is still rolling! Just click the back arrow at the bottom of this post. Beep-beep yeah!
Mrs Howard Johnston – Dolly Baird of Bunbarton, by Boldini 1906
Welcome back to the spontaneously written, #SteamPunk serial, Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers. Maybe you’ve heard me mention that I seem to have a physical need for color. I used to wear black occasionally — it’s a color. However, I’ve seen so very, very much of where I’ve lived this past decade, that I mostly avoid it now. If I wear…

Well butter my butt and call me a biscuit — Atonement in Bloom is finally published! It was a wild ride, even after I finished all the work on the novel. Meaning I’m not best pleased with all the bumps in the road from the Amazon take-over of Create Space… Now, let’s get this party bus on the highway!
The bus is headed to Atonement, TN, the fictional town of my urban fantasy series. The stories in my “Atonement universe” are not romances, not science fiction, not family drama, or religious — and they certainly are not high-brow literature. They’re whimsical, suspenseful, magical, fantasies set in our current real world.
All aboard! Beep-beep, yeah! The party bus is here. (Click here for theme music Magic Bus!) Our first stop is in Connecticut to pick up Dan Antion, who has a handy guided tour…

It’s Hidebound Hump Day, and another episode of Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers. There was not a Straightlaced Saturday chapter last week, so today we pick up where we left off a week ago.
Remember I’ve mentioned that this serial was originally presented as a “culinary” mystery. All of the random “things” that drove this spontaneously written chapter were food related. How do you think I used all those food things to create a story?
Previously with Copper, the Alchemist, and the Woman in Trousers
The alchemist’s head cold continued to wreak havoc with magical sneezes. However, that didn’t keep our heroes from noticing that someone or some thing was headed their way. Felicity and Cornelis argued about whether or not they should make a stand. Then the woman in trousers noticed that Copper wasn’t there…
