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.
A few months ago we revealed the beauty of the cover for The Ghost Rebellion by Starla Huchton, but really that is only half the story.
Today we can share with you the full beauty of the cover art, which is revealed in the print edition.
Once again, Starla Huchton has done wonderful work, and even provided artwork for the audio edition.
The proof copy of the print is on its way to us here at headquarters, and next month they will begin winging their way to our Kickstarter backers. Then in June the public will be able to purchase.
Toddle over here to pre-order the ebook if you have not already.
Our journalists have just returned from the RT Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. They were the captains for the steampunk track, and had quite the marvelous time.
They also had the chance to teach at Linnea Sinclair’s Pre-Con Bootcamp. Filling eager minds with knowledge sounds like a House of Usher technique, but they assure us it was only the art of writing they were passing out.
In addition they attended the Cirque de Punk, which was a celebration of all things punk: cyber, diesel and steam.

Tee Morris at the Big Book Fair
Then there was the Big Book Fair, where many readers chatted with them about the Ministry. They also converted a few steam curious and sold out of Phoenix Rising as a consequence.
The huge book fair
RT is one of the biggest romance conventions, and one of the most intense. Our poor journalists are now recovering at home, with their tiki mugs and happy memories. However, they are planning on attending next year, when it will be in Atlanta!
