The Great We're Not At Worldcon Sale!

I'm not at Worldcon in London! Neither are some of my favorite authors. So we decided to have a sale just because.

Today through Sunday the ebook of The Emperor's Agent is on sale for $.99 through my publisher! If you've been wondering if you'd like my non-Stargate books, or if you've been reading the Order of the Air but haven't dipped your toe into my other historical fantasies, now is the time to give it a try. At $.99 how can you lose?

Courtesan, actress, medium -- spy.

1805: Europe stands poised on the brink of war.

Elza is content with her life in the demi-monde, an actress and courtesan in the glittering society of France's First Empire, but when her former lover is arrested for treason, Elza is blackmailed into informing on her friends and associates. She has one alternative -- to become the secret agent of the most feared man in Europe, Napoleon Bonaparte!

France's invasion of England is imminent, but a spy in the camp of the Grand Army threatens the secret plans. Taking the Emperor's commission to catch the spy means playing the deadly game of spy versus counterspy. However, this is no ordinary espionage, but backed by the power of the witches of England determined to hold England's sea wards against invasion. Only an agent who is herself a medium can hope to unravel their magic in time -- with the life of the man Elza loves hanging in the balance.

From the theaters of Paris to the sea cliffs that guard the Channel, from ballrooms and bedrooms to battlefields corporeal and astral, Elza must rely on her wits, her courage, her beauty, and her growing talents as a medium for she must triumph -- or die!


Here are all the other great books on sale this weekend, including works by Robert Slater, Melissa Scott and Lisa A. Barnett, Don Sakers, Amy Griswold, Geonn Cannon, Steven H. Wilson and Blair McGregor. Each day of Worldcon I'll be focusing on a different book that's on sale, as this list has some favorites of mine.

So give Elza a try! If you like the Lodge magic in the Order of the Air, you'll be fascinated by this Lodge a century earlier.
