Today’s the release day for Swift the Chase! You can “buy” it (it’s free!) at your preferred ebook retailer.
All the samples in this collection are hopeful, thoughtful, and action-packed. If you love Tea Princess Chronicles, it’s a great way to check out other authors whose work is likely up your alley! I’ve personally read and would recommend stories by every one of them.
My short story is a bonus scene set after Chapter 17 of Tea Set and Match, Book 2 of Tea Princess Chronicles. It’s designed as entry point for new readers, so don’t worry if you’re not all caught up! But if you do know what’s been going on, it’ll be extra special. =)
Told from the perspective of Miyara’s best friend, the brilliant and prickly witch Lorwyn, this scene also features Miyara’s former bodyguard from Book 1 (A Coup of Tea), the assassin Entero, whom Lorwyn is Definitely Not dangerously in love with…
Magic—danger—and the thrill of the chase!
Experience the rush of racing across rooftops with thieves—or the desperation of fleeing an assassin who knows you a little too well. From the fish market of a tropical island sultanate, to the monster-filled alleys of a steampunk London, to a land where souls take different forms as they rise or fall through the layers of the world, this collection of chase scenes and vignettes set in nine distinctive worlds will leave you spellbound.
Find unexpected allies, unshakeable enemies, sudden twists and turns, and always the swiftness of the chase—whether you’re on the hunt, or racing for your life.
This sampler includes an exclusive bonus scene set during the events of Tea Set and Match by Casey Blair, available for free online, and a scene from an unpublished novel by Rachel Neumeier not available anywhere else. The excerpts by Intisar Khanani, Raf Morgan, P. Djèlí Clark, Sherwood Smith, Joyce Chng, Melissa McShane and Andrea K. Höst are from longer works that are available for sale at all major retailers.
