Just a quick reminder that we’re less than two months away from the launch of #TNE1. (What’s that? I hear you ask…)

Well, ask no more. Here are the deets (and there will be lots more to come):

The Nemesis Engines – Book One: The Peacemakers

Genre: Historical Fiction, Adventure, Science Fiction

Subgenre: WWI, light Steampunk elements

Anticipated release date: March 2014

Summary: 1915 – a time of wondrous technological advances but also a time of war. While all eyes are on Europe’s battlefields, scientists, anti-war industrialists and financiers are around the world are being systematically kidnapped or assassinated. A mysterious new power seems to have its eye on unseating the world’s embattled empires, and rumors of a plot to supply Germany with devastating new weapons of war have forced Britain’s intelligence services into a frantic, desperate race to hunt down and stop their new faceless enemy before it is too late.

Thrust together by fate and pursued half way around the world by ruthless killers, four unlikely allies will risk everything to keep these mysterious new machines of war from falling into the wrong hands: Gustav Steiner, the visionary industrialist determined to stay one step ahead of an assassin’s bullet; Alexandra Meade, the haunted young woman desperate to escape her gilded cage; Harbert Pencroft, the idealistic young American aviator on a mission to save the woman he loves; and Archie Whitfield, the lethal British agent, betrayed and left for dead, now driven by a relentless thirst for revenge.

An homage to Jules Verne and H.G. Wells novels, “The Peacemakers” is the first of three volumes in “The Nemesis Engines” trilogy, which weaves epic adventure, historical fiction, science-fiction and a dash of steampunk into a spell-binding, one-of-a-kind, deeply human roller-coaster ride that promises to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Sequels release schedule: Book Two – “Steel and Bone” (anticipated release Q1 2015); Book Three – *untitled* (anticipated release Q1 2016).

So there you have it. Check back in a few days for a little more info. I am planning to start talking a little more about the book now that it’s ready to hit the shelves (so to speak).
