Join us as Linda Weaver Clarke "Melinda And The Wild West," Kat Jaske "Gambit: For Love Of A Queen," and Jack Miller "All Crooks Welcome" share their experiences writing for three different eras. For more info, call 702-507-3458

An adventurous Bostonian woman finds love and intrigue on the plains of the American frontier in 1896. A plucky lady musketeer saves her queen by swashbuckling her way through 17th century France. Two detectives from the newly formed Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, while investigating a string of burglaries in 1976, pose as fences to buy evidence directly from criminals which piques the interest of the District Attorney's office and the FBI. The authors on our panel know a thing or two about spinning history into their stories to draw in the reader.

Righting Time
Book 3 of By Honor Bound
by Kat Jaske

What would you do if you were a time traveler and you made a terrible mistake?

What if that mistake is destroying your own history and your only hope is to convince 17th-century musketeers to travel forward in time and set events right?

What if Jala really is from the future and the fate of her future does depend on convincing Laurel and the seventeenth-century musketeers of that truth?


gambit bookBook Two: Gambit For Love of a Queen by Kat Jaske





It's 1639 in the time of King Louis XIII of France. There is absolutely no doubt in Laurel's mind ---Laurel, the secret leader of France's spy network---that he would plunge France into another devastating war when he learns Queen Anne has been kidnapped.
Hear the clash of swords. Feel the pain of their thrusts. Fight alongside the musketeers and Laurel, and find the queen, and get her out, at all cost, and what costs. God may save the queen. But who will save the heroes?

The cover of For Honor features Langeais castle. The cover of Gambit features Chambord castle/chateau in the background, and Azay le Rideau castle, as the "floating" castle. All these castles are in France.
