In celebration of the 2nd Edition of my book, Sings With Stars, I am officially launching it at the World Steam Expo, Dearborn, MI Memorial Weekend, May 2011.

I am raising money to buy copies of the book to sell at the World Steam Expo, the only Steampunk convention in Michigan!!

Vending at this convention means an amazing amount of exposure for my book within the Steampunk community!

Book's teaser:

What if you found a peep hole into another world? For seventeen year old Gigi Storme, that’s how it feels every time she holds certain mysterious objects at Mr. Whitley’s Junk Emporium. Gigi is different. How and why, she doesn’t know or understand, but she feels it. So does everybody else.  

Gigi’s life is about to change forever, with the clandestine meeting of a stranger she has longed to know and an attack upon Mr. Whitley, her only friend. These events reveal the truth that Gigi is from a magickal realm. In this new world she must face unexpected betrayal. While finding an unexpected magickal connection, she must learn to trust Kenyon, a handsome stranger from the magickal world to whom she’s inexplicably drawn.

Finally she must undergo a series of magickal initiations with the mysterious Sisterhood of the Seers to unlock her own sequestered abilities. Gigi will confront an unknown, yet hauntingly familiar enemy with devastating powers.She must accept all these truths and overcome her own dark heritage in order to emerge victorious in the end.

In the climactic finale of the book, Gigi must fight to prevent her magickal gifts from being stolen and to save her own life and the lives of those around her. Gigi will finally discover exactly what it is about her that is different, and how it could be the very thing that saves her and everyone around her.

 Where and who she comes from will have less to do with where she'll end up, than her own choices...
