Broken Promises: Special Guest JK Coi

Today I'm very happy to welcome author JK Coi to my blog. JK is one of my antho sisters, as we're two of the authors who have stories in Carina Press' steampunk Christmas anthology,  A Clockwork Christmas. JK's story in the anthology is Far From Broken, a story that I loved. It's dark and angsty and if you haven't read it yet, you're really missing out (Go. Buy. Read. You can thank me later.). I was thrilled to learn she was writing a sequel, and now it's finally here! But I'll let her tell you about that!

Broken Promises by JK Coi

When I wrote Far From Broken, I hadn’t really thought it would be a series until I finished it and knew that I couldn’t just leave Callie and Jasper like that. It wasn’t that the story was unfinished or didn’t have a satisfying ending, but it was a really dark, emotionally draining book and I wanted to give the reader a peek into their future. I wanted to show everyone that life wasn’t always going to be so bleak. Sure, there would be difficulties and conflict, but Callie and Jasper are destined for high adventure!

So Broken Promises is a little lighter than book 1. It’s also got exploding air ships, speeding steam trains, mad scientists, and lots of other excitement! I hope everyone has as great a time reading it as I did writing it.

J.K. Coi is a multi-published, award winning author of contemporary and paranormal romance and urban fantasy. She makes her home in Ontario, Canada, with her husband and son and a feisty black cat who is the uncontested head of the household. While she spends her days immersed in the litigious world of insurance law, she is very happy to spend her nights writing dark and sexy characters who leap off the page and into readers’ hearts.

She also writes Dark Fantasy for young adults as Chloe Jacobs (www.chloejacobs.com)

BROKEN PROMISES (Book 2, Seasons of Invention series), coming September 10, 2012

Former ballerina Callie Carlisle is determined to rebuild her life with her new mechanical limbs. She's just learned to accept the enhancements that saved her from certain death when she experiences uncontrollable twinges and flashes of light that obscure her vision. Terrified of literally falling apart, she resists telling her husband. Jasper's already vowed to keep her out of harm, and she doesn't want to worry him further.

When the War Office's General Black arrives with an urgent mission—rescue the doctor who created Callie's enhancements—she has no choice but to accept. A rogue agent and former patient of the scientist believes the biomechanical modifications he received are killing him, and he's out for revenge.

Callie must reach the doctor before it's too late. But with an overprotective Jasper at her side, and her alarming symptoms getting more frequent, will she be able to hold herself together long enough to save the doctor...and herself?

Thanks so much for hosting me today, PG!!! Muaw!! (I never know how that should be spelled, LOL)

PG Forte said...

Aw, thank you for stopping by. And I LOVE what I've read so far of Broken Promises--no surprise there!

Hmm. Maybe I should clarify that? While I was certainly not surprised by how much I love this story, there are quite a few surprises in store for Callie and Jasper. It's so, so good!

And Muaw! works. Right back atcha!

Sounds like another interesting steampunk book. I'm going to be an expert on this genre soon.

Congratulations on your release, J.K.

Thanks so much!!

JK, congrats on yet another book release!

I loved BROKEN PROMISES as much as FAR FROM BROKEN, and that's saying a lot. The first book in this series, SEASONS OF INVENTION published by Carina Press, was some of the most impressive writing I've come across in any genre. To my delight you've hit another winner with BROKEN PROMISES, giving Callie and Jasper a thrilling adventure while still threading this couple's devotion to each other throughout every page. I don't know how you do it, lady--everything you write is magic to me!

Uh, and I spell it MWAH, if that's okay. So... MWAH to you and PG! <3

Naturally I adored the steampunk element of Broken Promises. It is sooo good. But I have to admit, the emotional element - the rebuilding of a relationship that has fundamentally changed, although the love is as strong as ever - was what hooked me.

Seasons of Invention is a wonderful series. Thank you, JK :)

Thank you! Since I love all of your writing, I'm honoured you like my books!!

Ooh! I ~heart~ you already! I work in an insurance agency and am sitting for my insurance licensing exam today, in fact. I love your bio!

I am looking forward to reading your book; I've only recently gotten into Steampunk and am enjoying my foray. I know this sounds a bit fangrrlish since I haven't read it yet, but I love the cover with the gentleman obscured and peering over this shoulder. Look out, heroine! Is he good? Is he bad? I must know! ... I better read the book, eh?
