Amelia’s Revolution by Kim Flowers

OUT NOW! Amelia’s Revolution by Kim Flowers

In this alternate version of history, Amelia and her father, the governor of Delaware, attend a formal dinner at the capitol building with several other local leaders to meet with a delegate for Queen Victoria. The delegate declares the United States must sign a treaty with Britain to reinstate colonial rule, or else there will be war. Amelia runs away to warn the rest of the town, but not before she sees the most beautiful girl on earth. To Amelia’s horror, the beautiful girl is one of the British delegate’s slaves.

Slavery had been abolished in the U.S. two generations ago, after the American Revolution. Automatons do the manual labor now, and all of the melting-pot cultures in the nation live in harmony. But in Britain there are still slaves, and gender-queer people are persecuted. Amelia knows she can’t allow any treaty with Britain to be signed. She sneaks to the harbor of their coastal capital city and discovers not only the delegate’s ship, but an armada on the horizon. She also sees the beautiful girl from before . . . and learns her name is Nadine.

Amelia, her best friend Two-Spirit, and Nadine must organize a rebellion involving slaves, Lenni-Lenape warriors, automatons, and a mechanical horse cavalry. Will they be able to stop the British Imperial Navy? And will Amelia win Nadine’s heart if she can help her become free?

NOTE: The story is continued in the collection, Revolt of the Perfectly Free.

OUT NOW! London Lark by JL Merrow

Apprentice tinkerer Harriet Hodgkins is skilled in the construction and maintenance of intricate clockwork contrivances. She’s also rather good at masquerading as a man … for of course, no self-respecting craftsman would hire a woman.

Repairing a salvaged automaton becomes a labour of love for Hodgkins, and the object of her affections, Miss Pandora Piper, comes to hold her rescuer in equal esteem. But Hodgkins has yet to confess her true gender, and moreover the clockwork coquette is destined for resale.

If Hodgkins can’t engineer a more auspicious ending, Miss Pandora’s restoration will signal their separation.

Blurb:

The last place medium and artist’s model Tally Munro wants to be is Galveston, Texas, in 1908. After the terrible hurricane devastated the island, killing thousands, ghosts assail her with their cries for help. But her fiancé, artist Crispin Reid, has asked her to join him and his new friend, businessman and inventor, Angus McClaren at the Reid summer home.

Angus is a pragmatist and dubious about the reality of spirits. But he’s willing to join the couple in their spiritual venture, plus he’s interested in both Tally and Crispin — and not just as friends.

Cris is a romantic and just wants them all to get along — really well. With the help of one of Angus’s inventions, they take on the spirits of the hurricane and their feelings for one another.
