New Release: Luckless!

Hi darlins!

I have a new release today that I'm really excited about. This one has been a whirlwind--I wrote it over two years ago for Riptide, then pulled it from them for reasons which many of you know, then sent it in to and almost--almost!--got accepted by them. Seriously, it was the most flattering rejection letter I've ever gotten before or since, but it was still a no. I was starting to think I should change the title.

Eventually I decided to self-publish, and today's the day! Luckless is a story about monsters and dragons and a city under siege, but it's also about second chances, new love, and family. It's one of my favorites, and I hope you enjoy it too.

Evan Luck is a dragon rider with no dragon. Five years ago, his dragon gave her life defending the monster-ridden remnants of Marble, and ever since, his ability to connect empathically to another dragon had been as broken as his heart. Now he spends his days dodging his disappointed mayor, crafting arrows, fighting off the not-as-legendary-as-they-should-be beasts that’ve overrun America, and just trying to get by in the city of Forge.

But when he meets newcomer Lee Caldwell, Evan thinks his lonely luck might be changing. Lee is the only person in the city who doesn’t blame Evan for his dragon’s death, and he welcomes Evan into his own little family. There’s more to Lee than meets the eye, though, and between his refusal to talk about himself, pressure from the mayor to split them up, and a monster attacking the city’s foundations, Evan isn’t sure he’ll live long enough to learn the truth.

But not learning the truth will almost certainly be fatal, both to Evan and Lee’s budding relationship, and to the entire city.
