Huzzah! Hooray! and Bully!
The Dynamic Wingaurd & Kelly are coming to print!
At long last Madame Bluestocking's Pennyhorrid is available for pre-orders from it's publisher, Hunt Press.

Did you love Must Love Dragons? We know we did! Well, Monica Marier is back with a brand new series and it's now available for pre-order! As always, get it now before it comes out when the price goes up?

Madame Bluestocking's Pennyhorrid by Monica Marier

A Hope/Crosby style buddy-comedy in a Steampunk/Fantasy World!

Introducing The Dynamic Wingaurd & Kelly: Blindsmen, Costermongers, Duffers, Dowsers, Factors, Fulkers, Legerdemainists, Limners, Noontenders, Machinists and makers of fine Wigs. One is a washed up, boozing wizard, one is a debonair walking disaster. They’re gentlemen of fortune who realize that the advantage goes not to the biggest hand, but the better bluff. Additionally that any landing you can walk away from is a good one, and chicks dig scars.

Can the pair of them stop arguing long enough to save the citizens of Poulipolis from a watery grave? How will they manage with a shifty working girl and a hardened police inspector dogging their tails? Follow the hijinks of the Dynamic Wingaurd & Kelly (and their blue dragon, Philomena) as they unravel clues in a mysterious underwater city!

The Serial Madame Bluestocking's Penny Horrid can no longer be viewed here!
You can still read it at Doctor Fantastique's Show of Wonders!
See the post below for more info.

(Posted Nov 23, 2010)
Well it's been a crazy wild ride and I can't thank you all enough for staying with me. A special thanks goes out to Tony who inspired me to write this, and to Grace and Barrie who inspired me to finish it by commenting on my story constantly and asking when the next installment was coming.

Now that the headaches and long evenings are over, and the last episode has been posted, I have some exciting news! Madame Bluestocking's Pennyhorrid is going to be published! It's been picked up by Hunt Press (who have also published my novel Must Love Dragons and are currently handling the sequel, Runs In Good COndition).

That being said this first rough of MADAME will not be up on the internet for free for much longer. On DECEMBER 1st 2010, I will be taking down the site. If you want to catch up before then, you can use the user-friendly "Previous Chapters" navigation bar on the right-hand column of the site.

If you can't catch up before then, despair not! You can still read the story as it's being published in Doctor Fantastique's Show of Wonders with additional Music and Illustrations created by your humble servant *bows* But, again, it's only for a limited time.

I'll be sure to post more details about the final publication, which will include new scenes, new back stories, and INFINITELY better grammar and typography.

Thanks for coming along with me on this new writing journey. I look forward to all our future adventures.
