Fan Art And A Hint Of The Sequel

Got a treat for you!

I have been hard at work on Book #2 in the Inscrutable Machine series.  My publisher, naturally enough, feels that I can't post chapters in a serial format as I write it.  Very reasonable, but it takes away what I mostly did with this blog!  Still, the good news is I'm nearly (I think) halfway done with the manuscript.  I jumped the gun starting it, but after taking a couple of weeks off to redo the plot with lots of new ideas, I now am enthused and inspired.

Along the way, I picked up a new alpha reader.  My friend Nikki is a frothing fangirl for the first book, and now the second.  She has provided me with fan art, so I'm sharing it with you.

Meet Remington 'Remmy' 'The Kludge' Fawkes, a native of the secret Jovian lunar colonies and a major, major character in the sequel.  She's probably the most important character after Penny!

By the way, Nikki gets the same deal Lucy did.  In exchange for the reading that keeps me motivated to write, I will make her immortal in print.  I have so many plans for Ampexia...


  1. Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

  2. liked the first one, but more back story next time please!

  3. I thought the first book was a blast! Cant wait to see what else you come up with.

  4. Loved the first book, dying for the next.

  5. I think the first book is just close enough to mainstream to be something people might consider reading yet far enough away and unconventional enough to be fascinating. So, unlike the other books, 'Please don't tell my parents I'm a supervillain' isn't part of an obscure genre almost nobody really reads. Due to this the unique humor and interesting if quirky storyline really get to shine.
    So...I may have bought it for somebody else as a present (I'm 24!) but...I made the mistake of opening the book myself and now I had to buy another copy 'cause I can't bear to give mine away. So...great book is all I can say ;)

  6. I loved this book so much I forced it onto a friend of mine. I simply cannot wait for the sequel and will by buying it as soon as it comes out. This is by far my favorite new series of this year.

  7. Such a very useful book and i read this book and its give us great info how to make arts designee and how to painting on paper thanks for sharing writing a waiver .
