An Author’s Desk: Pippa Jay

British Scifi author Pippa Jay visits today. Pippa shares a pic of her writing area, info about her writing circumstances, and the blurb and pic of her latest release, Keir, from Lyrical Press. Her next novel, Gethyon, is scheduled for release in June, 2013 by Champagne Book Group.


WP_000457My desk sits in the corner of our back room and gets the sun for most of the day. So even in winter, if the sun is out, it’s the warmest, brightest place to be. I like to have pictures up on the wall relating to my current project as visual incentive – usually a mocked-up cover. Music is a must, and usually chosen to fit the mood of the story. Now all three of my little monsters are at full time school, I don’t have to do any early mornings to get my quiet time and gives me the luxury of planning out my day around writing, social media (ahem, aka chatting on Twitter) and the glorious household chores (meh!). Right now I’m waiting to hear on two submissions, working on a scifi short for a recent anthology call, and polishing up a steampunk superhero romance I drafted during CampNaNoWriMo last August.

Outcast. Cursed. Dying. Is Keir beyond redemption?

For Keirlan de Corizi–the legendary ‘Blue Demon’ of Adalucien–death seems the only escape from a world where his discolored skin marks him as an oddity and condemns him to life as a pariah. But salvation comes in an unexpected guise: Tarquin Secker, a young woman who can travel the stars with a wave of her hand.

But Quin has secrets of her own. She’s spent eternity searching through space and time with a strange band of companions at her back. Defying her friends’ counsel, Quin risks her apparent immortality to save Keir. She offers him sanctuary and a new life on her home world, Lyagnius.

When Keir mistakenly unleashes his dormant alien powers and earns instant exile from Quin’s home world, will she risk everything to stand by him again?
