What’s coming in 2019

Author Nanci M Pattenden will be launching a new series this fall.

She is currently awaiting feedback from her editor on Generation Witch: Rebirth. While this doesn’t exactly fit her normal genre of Victorian mysteries, it does have an element of mystery to it. Gen Witch is a contemporary Urban Fantasy Paranormal story. The main character, Marcy has abandoned her family heritage as practicing psychics to lead a so-called normal life. After inheriting from the last relative in her direct line, she begins to embrace her natural-born talent. After a quick trip to England to visit the only family she has left, Marcy soon realizes she is the target of psychic attack. She must enlist the aid of her family to win the battle. This is the first book in a short series.

In addition, Pattenden will be working with fellow author M.J. Moores in a novella series called D.E.M.ON. Tales. A tongue-in-cheek adventure with local agents hunting demons and mythical creatures. There will be 28 books in the series, with each author taking turns with the alphabet. The first will be done by Pattenden, and the expected release date is Hallowe’en. They will be put out in e-book, with a print version done every four books.



Detective Hodgins Victorian Mysteries book two

The major project for 2015 will be book two. It has been started and has been marinating for a few months. There are a few other things that have been partially written, but they will be put on the shelf until book two is done.  I guess the writers version of Elf on the Shelf is Manuscript on the Shelf. For most an e-shelf inside the computer.

Updates for the book will be on the author’s site at http://www.nancipattenden.com.

Stop the Press

Actually, it’s start the press. Body in the Harbour went to the printer Friday, so the copies for Bookapalooza will be hot off the press. It’s also been uploaded to Kobo and Book Baby for e-book versions.  All set to release November 22, 2014.
