The Christmas Thieves [Announcement]

November 2, 2017
00:0000:00

Some juicy info on the new story.

The Princess Thieves: Coming to Kindle November 7th

The Christmas Thieves: Coming to Kindle & Bandcamp November 28th

This holiday season will see a return to the shorter story format for the New Century Multiverse with an adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale A Christmas Carol. The Christmas Thieves sees the wizard Merlene and her eternal life partner The Nag stalking Captain Baltus in the winter of 1882 several months before The Christmas Thieves. Merlene hatches a plot that she/he believes may benefit a great deal of people and bring some much needed joy and love back to the city of London. 

The Christmas Thieves will be launched simultaneously in completed form on the Kindle Store and Bandcamp on Tuesday 28th of November 2017. After this it will be released by chapter on the New Century Multiverse podcast feed in the run up to Christmas Day, giving everybody the option to buy it early or wait and listen entirely free. This will not be the only novelette produced in the New Century series over the next year. Before we return to SteamHeart there is one other lost tale set during the first appearance of the Wendigo.

But more on that later. 

Come to www.newcenturymultiverse.com for more info on all the other books.

Music by Gil Haim Steinberg, Kevin MacLeod and I. Sazonov.
