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.

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?
