Two years ago, the Imperial Couple disappeared with neither a trace nor body to be found. While struggling to keep the ship of state afloat, Steve and Rent are forced to deal with the decline of the Empire, the bankruptcy of SdK, an impending nuclear war, and worst of all, a destructive fire in the Palace which levels the Seven Nags Pub. In the meantime, a strange boy and a black eagle appear in Karupatani reminding the old timers of both a boy and an eagle from years past. Who are they and why have they come? Has Senya returned, or is this someone else?
Ah well, here we go again. Another one has materialized out of thin air. At least they don’t require feeding, walking, diaper changes or college tuition. Naming them is much harder though. With the kid, you call him/her after whomever they resemble, Great Uncle Charley or Grandmother Agnes. The dog is named for his physical characteristics such as Spot, Brownie, Spunky or Old Yeller. The book, however, requires a name that has something to do with its contents while providing an intriguing reason to check out those contents but not spoil them. The title should also be filled with double entendré and/or innuendo so readers will study it and think you, “oh, so clever.”
So, here is the new one, affectionately titled “Imperial Masquerade” which I personally think is oh so clever. You’ll have the opportunity to agree or disagree but not until November, exact date TBD.
A lovely interview of me on Lori’s blog today.

2. What made you decide to write (the genre of your book), were there any influencing factors, or were any of the stories based on true events.
I’m a life long fan of Star Trek and Star Wars and have also enjoyed historical fiction. The Two Moons of Rehnor has a lot of elements from all that. In fact, recently a reviewer called it “Game of Thrones meets Star Wars.” I…
