What's New from Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers?

I know, I said I was going to do this the third Tuesday of the month. But then I started booking RMFW writers to guest post or be interviewed, and the third Tuesday was on the authors' virtual tour schedule, so there you have it. My "What's New?" feature will float, and I'll go with whatever news I have at the time.

Before I begin, let me remind you of the Contest! Contest! Where Do You Get Your Leeches? post from yesterday. Post your comments by January 8th to be eligible for the cool prize.

And now for the news in random order:

"What could possibly go wrong on a date with a vampire?" Betsy Dornbusch announces that Quencher by E. Cameron Stacy and Ainsley is now available in a Kindle edition, as well as the ebooks from Whiskey Creek Press. Fallen Angel Reviews has posted an interview with Betsy.

The third book in the trilogy, Quenched, is now available as an ebook from Whiskey Creek Press.

Betsy also has two new short stories, one in Big Pulp and the other in Short-Short.me! For more information and the story links, visit Betsy's blog post, business first, at Sex Scenes at Starbucks.


N. R. Williams announces the release of the Kindle edition of her high fantasy novel, The Treasures of Carmelidrium.

"Missie is a gifted flutist in her final year at the University of Colorado. Despite her talent, she questions her abilities, instinctively knowing that something is missing. An unexpected spring blizzard blurs her vision as she is driving home for spring break. When a cloaked man appears in the middle of the road, she nearly collides into him. He points a staff at her and she is propelled through a portal into a medieval world."

Nancy will be a guest at Chiseled in Rock on January 18th as she makes the rounds on her vitual book tour. Here's the link to the complete tour schedule.


Janet and Richard Fogg announce their book, Fogg in the Cockpit, is now available for pre-order from online booksellers and Casemate Publishers. For more information, visit their blog, Fogg in the Cockpit.

"Fogg In The Cockpit began, and ended, as a labor of love, but the focus of that love changed as the work unfolded. Howard Fogg's legacy was already firmly established thanks to his success as a railroad artist, but what son or daughter-in-law could resist the opportunity to build on that legacy when presented with a document as fascinating as a wartime diary?"

Learn more about Janet at her website.


Today is the official release date for Carol Berg's The Soul Mirror: A Novel of the Collegia Magica. The opening chapter is posted at Carol's website.

Carol's upcoming appearances:

Tuesday, January 18, 5:30pm at Reader's Cove, Fort Collins

Terry Wright announces The Beauty Queen, Justin Graves Series Book 5, is now available in Kindle and Nook editions, and from TWB Press.

"Struggling to get on with her life after the murder of her daughter, Sandy Brandish returns to the glitz and glamour of child beauty queen competition. There she meets an orphaned girl. Adopting her will catapult them to the top of Deckers' local pageant registry and spur a repeat performance of the night her daughter died, revealing the murderer and a dark secret in the Brandish mansion."

Learn everything you ever wanted to know about Terry and were afraid to ask at his website. He also has a blog about zombies and other dead things, if you're so inclined.


"What if...a colony on Mars inadvertantly contaminates an ecologically devastated Earth?" Find out in Crawlers, a novella by Rebecca Bates published in the anthology Infradead.

The anthology can also be ordered through High Crimes Mystery Bookshop.

Thanks for the shout out Pat. I didn't realize so little of my blurb would show up, so I recently changed it. I will post it on Thursday this week, Friday, my tour starts.

Janet Fogg said...

Pat, thank you so much for including Fogg in the Cockpit with so many great books!

Fogg in the Cockpit is truly a project from our hearts and it's been a long journey. We're anxious for May when it will be released (in hardcover, no less!).
