History has a way of repeating itself. In the Sunken City that was once Paris, all who oppose the new revolution are being put to the blade. Except for those who disappear from their prison cells, a red-tipped rook feather left in their place. Is the mysterious Red Rook a savior of the innocent or a criminal?

Meanwhile, across the sea in the Commonwealth, Sophia Bellamy’s arranged marriage to the wealthy René Hasard is the last chance to save her family from ruin. But when the search for the Red Rook comes straight to her doorstep, Sophia discovers that her fiancé is not all he seems. Which is only fair, because neither is she.

As the Red Rook grows bolder and the stakes grow higher, Sophia and René find themselves locked in a tantalizing game of cat and mouse.

A Day in the Life of Writing ROOK

So for many reasons that were mostly my fault, Rook had a very short deadline. Like, a really short deadline. So EVERY hour of EVERY day of my ENTIRE LIFE for about five months was all about writing Rook. A routine like this comes with one or two drawbacks.

Writing Life Casualty #1:
Grown-up responsibilities

Writing Life Casualty #2:
Friends (My writer friends didn’t even bother to dial. They knew…)

Writing Life Casualty #3:
Personal Hygiene (sorry, family)

Writing Life Casualty #4:
Basic Needs (sorry yet again, family)

And last but not least,

Writing Life Casualty #5: 

But let’s not dwell! Let’s discuss the amazing advantages that come with being holed up in a writing cave:

Amazing Writer’s Life Deal #1: 
Cause I have to “work.”

Amazing Writer’s Life Deal #2:
It’s creativity in a bag! And a “work” expense.

Amazing Writer’s Life Deal #3:
Google image searches are now also “work.”
Why, hello there, Renè.

Amazing Writer’s Life Deal #4:
Cats increase your word count.
Okay, so that’s not me or my cat. I have no personal pictorial evidence of this phenomenon (see Life Casualty #3) but trust me, it’s a THING.

And the perk to beat all perks:

Amazing Writer’s Life Deal #5:
Getting paid to daydream.

And of course, when you’re done, you end up with this:
Which is the most awesome deal of all.
