Lorr and Disorder

by Rogerta Rogow

Lorr and Disorder by Roberta Rogow

Nothing is what it seems in the City of Lorr…

Just ask Pola Drach, Independent Eye. In a city founded by refugees from a dying earth long ago, she pursues dark secrets and exposes the shadowy underbelly of society. Who killed the ambitious model? And was that who she really was? Who’s forcing shopkeepers to buy worthless stock, and circulating funny money? Why is the youngest scion of one of the city’s richest families suddenly a target?

Most important for Pola—Who wants her dead?

New Release – Otherworlds Imprint – Madness in Manatas

Madness in Manatas

by Roberta Rogow

Madness in Manatas by Roberta Rogow

This holiday is no vacation

Ned Cooper had made plenty of enemies with his loud vocal attacks on every religion that wasn’t his, but it didn’t seem to Halvar that was enough to justify a knife in the back. Nevertheless, there he is—dead as one of his own barrels. Then Guardsman Zoltan meets a similar fate, and one with even more suspects given his protection racket on the docks and his constant harassment of the women in the souk.

Are these murders personal, or might they be connected to the muskets the captain of the Belle Fleur was smuggling into Manatas? Was Master Albrecht making gunpowder for those guns? Will Halvar still have a job after his contract expires on New Year’s Day?

The intrepid Dane is once again knee-deep in corpses and on the wrong end of pointed weapons. Can he solve all the mysteries before his term of office ends? And what will he do, stuck in Nova Mundum, if someone doesn’t renew his contract?”

by Roberta Rogow

Malice in Manatas

A dead boy, a cougar, and peanuts…

Halvar the Hireling, now the Captain of the Town Guard, must deal with the deaths of a messenger boy and a respected professor of mathematics, both of which may be linked to a shipment of arms being smuggled into Manatas. To make matters worse, a cougar has been spotted in the hills north of the town. Sectarian disputes and personal rivalries make for a not-so-happy holiday for this ex-mercenary and reluctant detective.

New Release – Otherworlds Imprint – Menace In Manatas

Menace in Manatas

Who killed the captain?

It’s not bad enough that Halvar is stuck in Manatas while Don Felipe is off exploring the New World. Now he’s got a dead ship captain on his hands, a nobleman and his virago wife complaining about their living accommodations, and an enemy from his past who claims to be just passing through.

The bodies, though, seem to keep piling up, while the clues continue to be elusive. There’s something rotten going on, but finding out exactly what it is and whose killing people is turning out to be tougher than any job he’s had so far.

(writing as K.D. Hays) will be featured in Southern Writers Magazine’s “What’s the Story” section explaining the inspiration for her latest book, Roped In. Since Kate was a jump rope coach for eight years and Roped In is a mystery surrounding a jump rope competition, the story behind the story could have easily stretched to novel length all by itself.

Stephen Tiano – who works as a book designer, Page Compositor and Layour Artist – has been quite busy recently. He’s currently working on three book interiors, one of which is a sort of retelling of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with a transgender twist!

See some of what he’s been working on below.
