Welcome!

This is a first post. There’s really not much to say here except for the obligatory: STEEL VICTORY comes out in less than a month, WHOOOOOOO! (June 25, to be exact.)

Isn’t she pretty?

One hundred years ago, the vampire Victory retired from a centuries-long mercenary career. She settled in Limani, the independent city-state acting as a neutral zone between the British and Roman colonies on the New Continent.

Twenty years ago, Victory adopted a human baby girl, who soon showed signs of magical ability.

Today, Victory is a city councilwoman, balancing the human and supernatural populations within Limani. Her daughter Toria is a warrior-mage, balancing life as an apprentice mercenary with college chemistry courses.

Tomorrow, the Roman Empire invades.

What they’re saying about STEEL VICTORY:

“A deviously raucous romp through a modern world filled with were-creatures, mercenaries, and Victory—a fanged kickass heroine who must squelch her adopted city’s political divisiveness before the Roman Empire can break down the proverbial gates and tear her world apart.”—Diana Dru Botsford, author Four Dragons and The Drift

“Strong characters rule in this unique debut. Magic, murder, and mayhem wrapped up in one package—definitely my type of book!”—Maria V. Snyder, The Chronicles of Ixia series

Go here to pre-order the book directly from the publisher, Dog Star Books (the science fiction/adventure imprint of Raw Dog Screaming Press).
