A Secret Revealed: Introducing The Midnight Show!

So, you know how I've mentioned a "secret project" a few times in the last few weeks? Well, the time has come for that secret to be revealed! Introducing The Midnight Show, a Jazz-Age-inspired urban fantasy of music, magic, and mystery, featuring fae secrets, strange dreams, a singer with a shoe problem, and a private investigator who has to untangle it all!

This mystery is the case of his dreams — and her nightmares.

By day, Dayo Temitrope is a swinging singer, an up-and-coming star with a shining career ahead of her. By night, she’s . . . well, she’s not sure, but whatever she does leaves her every morning with sore feet and worn-out shoes. And after six months, she’s had enough.

Enter Bastian Dennell, a private investigator just trying to get by. When Dayo hires him to find out where she goes at night, he’s sure it’s his big break: his chance to establish himself and get the funds to pay off his family’s debt. Plus, he gets to work with his favorite singer, even if she isn’t exactly what he expected. What could be better?

But first he has to solve the case — which means navigating a tangled web of strange dreams, fair folk schemes, and show business. It will take all Bastian’s wits, along with the shining talents of Dayo herself, to figure out the truth before the curtains close for good on Dayo’s career.

A jazz-age-inspired twist on the Twelve Dancing Princesses from the author of Blood in the Snow.

(Want to know who designed that cover? Yours truly! It may have been one of my most challenging design projects to date, just because I had to actually draw stuff, but I am SO HAPPY with how it turned out!)

In addition, I am happy to announce that I will be releasing The Midnight Show with the Tattered Slippers Arista Challenge group. This will be my third year publishing as a part of the Arista Challenge, and I'm very happy I get to do so again! (I almost didn't, but this story snuck up on me unexpectedly, and Kendra let me join at the last minute.) Once again, we have a pretty snazzy author lineup, including both new and returning Arista Challenge authors. You can learn about all the Tattered Slippers books by checking out last night's Facebook reveal party or the release info page. And if you want to help spread the word about this release, we are currently taking signups for ARCs and the blog tour, and we have an Instagram challenge you can participate in!

I can't wait to share this story with y'all. Thanks for your support!
