With the release of The Ghost Rebellion, our journalists are free to run amok…or at least get out a little bit.
First up tomorrow, is our Facebook party to celebrate the launch of the fifth novel. We will be having games, giveaways, and special guests. We’re going to be hosting, Nick and Stacia Kelly, Katie Bryski, PJ Schnyder, August Grappin, Gail Carriger, and Kady Cross
So pop on over on June 24th between 7-11pm EST.
Then our journalists will be attending Escape Velocity, the first convention held by the Museum of Science Fiction at the Gaylord National Resort in Maryland. They will be talking about steampunk in anime and film. Check out our event on Facebook for a discount code.
And then later in the month of July, the 22-24th to be precise, our journalists will be at Motor City Steamcon. They had a jolly old time last time they were in Detroit, so they are certainly looking forward to visiting once again.
Our journalists will have paper copies of the Ghost Rebellion with them at these events, so please find them if you would like to purchase a signed copy.
Finally, the fifth book of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences is available.
The book that our readers and listeners helped us bring to life.
From authors Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris, the award winning steampunk series continues…
The chase is on! After rescuing Queen Victoria from the clutches of the Maestro, Agents Eliza D Braun and Wellington Books are in hot pursuit of Dr Henry Jekyll. While he continues his experiments on the aristocracy of Europe, he leaves a trail of chaos and despair in his wake. However when Eliza and Wellington run him to ground in India, they are forced to come face to face with ghosts from the past, and the realities of empire.
Meanwhile Ministry agents Brandon Hill and Bruce Campbell travel deep into Russia hunting down a rare ingredient to save Queen Victoria’s life. Amid the cold they uncover a threat from the revitalized House of Usher that comes directly from their new Chairman.
All in the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences will find their allegiances in question, and their mettle tested as a new dastardly era of international intrigue dawns.

So we have been fielding queries from people who missed the Ghost Rebellion Kickstarter, but still want to purchase book five.
Next Friday, June 17th is the release day for to the general public and we are very excited, so here are all the details we have available right now.
The ebook is available for pre-order right here, direct from us. This gives the Ministry the most pennies from the sale, as well as the mobi and epub versions for you.
It is also available for pre-order from Smashwords and Barnes and Noble
Amazon and Kobo links will be available on the 17th.
The print books will be online at Amazon, but on the 17th you will be able to buy signed copies direct from our store.
The audiobook should be available in a couple of weeks from the release date from Audible and Amazon.
We’re very excited to get this book out to the public. It has been a delight to write, and we hope the readers and listeners enjoy it just as much as we have.
So as of this Monday, our backers got the ebook edition of The Ghost Rebellion. The delivery of a new book is always nerve-wracking, but our journalists were too busy to contemplate it over much.
Hundreds of books have descended on them, turning their house into—however briefly—a warehouse. However we must investigate because it is entirely possible that it is criminal for a book to look this lovely.
Now all they have to do is warm up their signing hand, pack them up, and send them off. This is the largest part of the Kickstarter shipments, however there will be others. Shortly after this the add-on rewards will be sent out. Then in December that scandalous fiction, Countless Hues of Crimson will be delivered. Finally, next May, Operation: Endgame, the sixth book of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences.
However, fear not, in September—though not part of the Kickstarter—The Curse of the Silver Pharaoh, the first book of the Ministry Seven will be available. The cover art will be revealed once the dust settles from the Ghost Rebellion.
Now back to crack the whip on those journalists of ours.
As you may be aware our journalists have as a little aside, dabbled in steampunk novelette fairytales.
Pip Ballantine produced Mechanical Wings based on Wild Swans, and The Little Clockwork Mermaid.
Tee Morris produced Aladdin and His Wonderfully Infernal Device.
Finally Mr Morris released the fourth and final of the quartet, Little Red Flying Hood.
Prepare for a dogfight with the Big, Bad Wolf…
In France a deadly battle is raging in the skies, but Scarlett Quinn has been shuffled off to reconnaissance duty in an ailing biplane that has seen better days. However, fate will put her in the cross-hairs of one of Germany’s greatest aces, behind enemy lines and way over her head.
Completing her mission will be no easy task, and Scarlett must use her wits and skills if she wants to return safely back to earth.
Additionally, all four novelettes can be purchased as a bundle on Amazon, or read on Kindle Unlimited.
