Guest Author: Colleen Gleason & Giveaway!!

Colleen Gleason

I’m really pleased to be featuring acclaimed paranormal and historical romance author Colleen Gleason to the blog.  Colleen also writes Young Adult novels, and she’s got a fabulous new book out this week–the first in what is sure to be a really cool series about the sister of Bram Stoker (of Dracula fame) and the niece of Sherlock Holmes, who team up to solve mysteries in Victorian London.

The Clockwork Scarab is already getting great reviews, too:

“The author’s writing exudes energy, romance, and humor, and she gives her heroines strong, vibrant personalities as they puzzle out the expansive mystery unfolding before them.”—Publishers Weekly

“This book has it all… the vivid setting and the finely drawn, compelling heroines make this a fine choice for readers who like their stories with steampunk spice and smart, strong women.”—School Library Journal

Clockwork Scarab

Here’s the blurb:

Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes never meant to get into the family business. But when you’re the sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock, vampire hunting and mystery solving are in your blood.

And when two society girls go missing, there’s no one more qualified to investigate. Now fierce Evaline and logical Mina must resolve their rivalry, navigate the advances of not just one but three mysterious gentlemen, and solve murder with only one clue: a strange Egyptian scarab.

The stakes are high. If Stoker and Holmes don’t unravel why the belles of London society are in such danger, they’ll become the next victims.

Sounds great, doesn’t it?  You can find out more about the book on the website dedicated to the new series.  And check out this book trailer with a great steampunk vibe!

For my readers today, Colleen is giving away a $10 gift card to the winner’s choice of retailer.  Just let us know which actors play your favorite version of Sherlock Holmes or Dracula for a chance to win!
