Release Day- The Song Bird! Win a free copy!

History is filled with exciting adventures and it's a genre I love to explore.  In the past I've written about the old west (The Scarlet Dove, Lawless Hearts) and Regency England (An Innocent Heart) because I've read so much on these time periods.  So when I decided to write about a point in between I was stretching out of my comfort zone.  But as a writer, not only is it my job to push boundaries, its breathing life into my creativity.  I had to research clothing, money, structure of the United States, history of California, as well as figuring out how someone would travel from Louisiana to San Francisco because the railroad wasn't in place.  All these little nuances bring a story to life and I was excited to feature a woman full of spirit and kindness in a world where those traits were almost lost.

Though The Song Bird starts in San Francisco, it ends in a place I created called Alecia Falls, Washington.  This city, along with the one in The Scarlet Dove, sets up two places that are the basis for an upcoming trilogy coming in 2013 tentatively titled the Perth, McKnight & Daire stories.  Book 1 is complete and I'm steady working on Book 2.  I'm very excited about these stories and hope that you'll love the characters as much as I do.

But for now, let me introduce The Song Bird:

Avilon Chambert travels to the wild city of San Francisco to find her missing sister.  All she has is a letter explaining she’s in terrible trouble and that she’s been working as an upstairs girl in a club owned by two handsome men, Eli Masters and Jason Braddock.

When she arrives at the club, the only way she can get to talk to them is by auditioning for the singing position, and she captivates them by her beautiful operatic voice.  But the answers to her questions are vague and filled with holes, rousing her suspicions.

Her arrival at the club seems to set off a chain of events filled with danger.  As she searches further for her sister, she unleashes the wrath of a madman bent of revenge, threatening to destroy everything and every one she’s come to love.
