The Railwalkers by Ruth Hanson

OUT NOW! The Railwalkers by Ruth Hanson

America, 1887. In a country healing from the horrors of the Civil War, the American West has never been more treacherous. Evil men do as they please, and the often faulty and corrupt justice system does little to nothing to help their victims.

Enter the Railwalkers. Bandits whose only goal is to punish those whom the law has allowed to walk free. Some think they’re an urban legend, meant to scare would-be criminals into submission. Some see them as no different than the murderers they kill, while to others, they are angels of mercy. To Violet Donovan, they are family.

Growing up as the sole heiress to the sizable Donovan estate, Violet’s place of privilege allowed her wild spirit to flourish. Despite the pressures of her sex — find a husband, stay pretty, have children, be subservient, don’t speak out of line — Violet is passionate, loud, stubborn, and untamed. However, at the ripe, marriageable age of twenty, Violet faces the fact that she may have to give in to her mother’s wishes and marry mean, ugly Eustace Carpenter, the only other family name in their little town with comparable worth.

But Violet’s life changes forever when she is saved from an attacker by a strange woman. A woman who, like Violet, doesn’t exactly fit the mold. Unfortunately Violet gets mixed up in a murder charge and has to leave everything she knows for a life on the run from the law. Through divine intervention, she and the woman cross paths again, and Violet comes to know her and her comrades.

They are Mei Wong, Linus Cooper, Sitting Bear, and Rory McNab. The infamous Railwalker gang.

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! The Flowers of Time by A.L. Lester

Jones is determined to find out what caused the unexpected death of her father whilst they were exploring ancient ruins in the Himalayas. Along with a stack of books and coded journals, he’s left her with the promise she’ll travel back to England for the first time since childhood and try being the lady she’s never been.

Edie and her brother are leaving soon on a journey to the Himalayas to document and collect plants for the new Kew Gardens when she befriends Miss Jones in London. She’s never left England before and is delighted to learn the lady will be returning to the mountains she calls home at the same time they are planning their travels. When they meet again in Srinagar, Edie is surprised to find that, out here, the Miss Jones of the London salons is “just Jones” the explorer, clad in breeches and boots and unconcerned with the proprieties Edie has been brought up to respect.

The non-binary explorer and the determined botanist make the long journey over the high mountain passes to Little Tibet, collecting flowers and exploring ruins on the way. Will Jones discover the root of the mysterious deaths of her parents? Will she confide in Edie and allow her to help in the quest? The trip is fraught with dangers for both of them, not least those of the heart.
