I’m pleased to announce that my new book MAXIMILIAN STANDFORTH AND THE CASE OF THE DANGEROUS DARE will be released on June 11. It will be available via amazon.com. Here is a description of my fun (and possibly mad) book:
The cursed and foreboding McGregor Castle is the most terrifying and haunted location in all of the British Empire. Only a brave (or foolish) soul would consider visiting it, let alone staying within its walls for five days. In other words, a perfect dare for a man like Maximilian Standforth!
Maximilian Standforth, famed playboy aristocrat and private detective, is a genius with dangerous tastes. With Bob (his trusty carriage driver, biographer, and body guard) and Maggie Collins (actress, spy, and maid) by his side, Maximilian will experience horrors and madness unlike any seen before. For it is at McGregor Castle that the team will discover more than they ever could imagine in this very experimental and genre-breaking thriller.
There is also a book giveaway for the work on GoodReads! Two readers will win a print copy of the book. The book giveaway goes through June 12. I hope you will consider entering below.

I hope you enjoy my new book!
I’ll have to read A Jane Austen Daydream first, but this one sounds fun.
Thanks! I hope you will check out both, they are very different from each other… Actually, Maximilian is a VERY different work from most books.
I like humorous, light-hearted books. My current read is The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen, and though it is middle grade children’s fantasy, it’s fun and witty with a hint of serious. By itself the title of your book tells me that there’s fun to be had.
Sounds pretty snazzy!
LOL. To be honest, of all of my books this one was the most fun to write. It was so liberating and crazy. I could do anything. I’m sure I will be blogging about this soon. But it has some mad twists in it. Seriously, it is out there… Can a writer call their own book awesome? Okay, this is awesome.
I’m always wary of doing so myself, but hey, there’s nothing wrong with a little confidence in something you feel like you nailed! Enthusiasm is infectious, after all. (>^-‘)>
