Congrats to eiricmacbean who won the prize here for the BVC Grand Opening! 

His choice:

What Ho, Automaton!What Ho, Automaton!

“A fun blend of P.G. Wodehouse, steampunk and a touch of Sherlock Holmes. Dolley is a master at capturing and blending all these elements. More than fascinating, this work is also rip-roaring fun!”
SF Revu

Great book, I really enjoyed it.  Hope you do too!

Whew!  This spring has been super busy for me.

Today my first original novel ebook came out from Book View Cafe!  First as in the first to come out first as an ebook.  There will probably be a print edition later this year.

coverThe novel is IMMORTAL, an urban fantasy.  Here's the cover, and here's a description:

What do you do if the most gorgeous guy you've ever seen asks for your help?


No brainer. Len Whiting is smitten from the minute she sees the stranger's amazing eyes. She agrees to help Caeran find the healer he's been seeking in rural New Mexico. What Len doesn't know is that neither Caeran nor the healer is human: they're immortal ælven, and they're locked in an ancient struggle with the vampires who are their kin. Len wants Caeran’s love, and wants to help the healer find a cure—but first they must cope with the bloodthirsty vampire who's got his sights set on them all.

I've been even more quiet than usual lately, because I was working on finishing this project, of which I'm extremely proud:

Many PathsIt's now a year since my fantasy novel The Betrayal was published. The second novel was delayed because of the financial crisis, and won't be out until January 2011. Naturally, I was very disappointed about that.

I want my readers to have something new this year, so I've put together Many Paths, a collection of original stories set in the same world as the novel. It's an ebook, initially available only through Book View Café.

The stories range from short to novella in length and feature both familiar characters from The Betrayal and new faces. Together they make up a full book-length collection.

Contents: "The First Sword," "A Midsummer's Song," "The Three Veils," "Shades of Joy," "The Eighth Successor," and "First Love."

Available for $1.99 at Book View Café
