Shiny New Toy!

And by “toy,” I mean “novel idea.”

I’m still working out the specifics, but I’ve already started putting together my “Visual Inspiration” folder. Here’s a peek at what’s inside (clicking on the picture will take you to the source I found it at!)

Now I just need to plot out this bad boy and actually write it! First I need some time. Anyone got any of that lying around?

      I have! I’ve got the blurb on my tumblr, but it would probably be a good idea to put it around here somewhere, huh? 😀 Well until that time, here it is:

      1812 Russia: Napoleon watches his troops ignite and melt like human candles at the Battle of Maloyaroslavets, leading to his retreat from Russia.

      1918 Italy: Austro-Hungarian forces combust on the battlefield at Vittorio Veneto, and World War I ends soon thereafter.

      1939 Europe: A world in the grips of a fertility crisis is tumbling toward another war, and all sides are seeking the combustion weapon that twice altered history.

      In London, engineering student Matilda Pickering always wears gloves to hide the tattoo she has had since she can remember. She jumps to obey her father’s summons to China, eager to escape her controlling fiance. Shanghaied by pirates on the way, Matilda is swept off her feet by their captain, only to learn that she is a pawn in a deadly game that will change the course of history—again.
