5 Reasons Storming Is Dear to My Heart
1. I had probably more fun writing it than I have any of my other books.
2. Which makes sense, since I think it's the most objectively "fun" story out of anything I've written to date (but don't worry, you'll still get all your angsty characters in search of redemption, blood-and-thunder stakes, and what my totally prejudiced brain insists is the most adorable romantic subplot I've written yet).
3. Its setting (western Nebraska), if not the time (1920), is very familiar to me, which was a blast for a change. So I get to show you around my favorite places along the way.
4. It's got biplanes!
5. For the first time ever, it combines my two genres-historical and speculative-by tossing in a fun dose of dieselpunk. (What's dieselpunk? Think steampunk, but set between the World Wars instead of the Victorian period.)
