I’m still packing, still moving, and still craaaaazy busy, but I’ve got an awesome spotlight post for you! Joy Noel’s first novel DRAGONFLY WARRIOR is set for its debut on Janaury 6, and I got to have a sneak peek at the cover that I’m sharing here with you!
From the back:
The Mechanica Wars: Savage Machines Are Afoot…
At the age of twenty, Kanze Zenjiro’s bloody footprints mark the bodies of those who stood in his way to protect the throne of Nihon. Now, the tyrannical Iberian Empire is bent on destroying his kingdom, and they send their steam-powered giants and iron spiders against him.
Zen embarks on a quest that takes him on the most dangerous journey of his life. To succeed, Zen must live up to his nickname, the Dragonfly Warrior, and kill all his enemies with only a sword and a pair of six-guns. He is called upon to somehow survive a test of faith and loyalty in a world so cruel and merciless, it borders on madness.
I know, right?! I’m itching to get my hands on this book! Steampunk, Asian and European mythology, martial arts, a Wild West, and fantasy? GIMME.
About The Author:
After doing some freelance writing and editing for more than a dozen years, Jay decided to stop procrastinating and pursue his dream of being a novelist. He’s been blogging for over eight years, and even had a comedy podcast syndicated all over the internet. All of that was fun, but all the steampunk-inspired stories in his head just wouldn’t leave him alone. Jay spends his days working in medical sales, but he can be found toiling over his laptop late at night when all is quiet.
He draws inspiration from all over: H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Shakespeare, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, and Isaac Asimov.
And Jay loves cookies.
As for me, I should be able to resume regular posting after December. There’s a lot of exciting stuff happening behind the scenes that I can’t wait to share.
