The Adventures of Miss Upton and the Sky Pirate by CJ Archer

C.J. lives in Australia with her husband, 2 kids and a kitten who thinks she owns the keyboard.  C.J. has been writing for 15 years while holding down boring day jobs and raising a family.  She loves writing, reading and consuming good food and wine.  When she's not doing any of these things she's catching up on the latest episodes of The Tudors, Dr Who or Ashes To Ashes.

Tilda Upton's talent at finding things with the aid of a talisman puts her on the edge of the dangerous hellhag category. Rather inexperienced in using her magic, she's prone to mistakes. It is one such mistake that lands her in debt to the Chief Royal Inventor who blackmails her into retrieving an Oriental and his machine. But to find the Oriental she needs to intercept an airship and the best way to do that is through piracy.

Tilda turns to the notorious Black Jack Knight, a sky pirate known for his cruelty and cleverness who dislikes passengers, particularly of the female variety. Fortunately for Tilda he accepts a currency she can provide—the location of a man who witnessed his brother's murder, a murder which Jack was falsely accused of committing. Together they fight corsairs, a mad inventor and their growing attraction to each other in order to retrieve the man Tilda has been forced to find, only to learn his machine could destroy her.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
The snappy dialog, fast-paced adventure, sword fights, tender romance and of course pirates!

Q: Why did you go indie?
I'm a control freak.  Being indie means I can make all the decisions from the cover and content to the price and blurb.  It's my kind of heaven.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
In historical romance, I love Amanda Quick.  In steampunk, I enjoy Gail Carriger.
