Strax and the Widow Is Released! The Lady Has Arrived at Her Destination.

When I opened my email this morning, I was greeted with the notification that my Steampunk Western, “Strax and the Widow“, was published. It’s an ebook on amazon/kindle that’s been a labor of love, two years in the making, over twenty hours of editing, and it survived a major computer crash. I am tired, elated and relieved, all at once. I hope you enjoy the story of Kate Church. I have been chomping at the bit to release her on the world. Today is a “soft” release with some promotion. I’ll have a “solid” release with contests, etc. and hopefully hard copies of the book soon. Updates will be here, my social media links below, and on my Facebook  pro page, The Countess Official Fanpage of Victoria L. Szulc (link here): https://www.facebook.com/MySteampunkProject

If you’d like to purchase Strax and the Widow here is the amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/Strax-Widow-Society-Trilogy-Book-ebook/dp/B00NSENACA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1411413477&sr=8-1&keywords=Strax+and+the+Widow

I would also like to share that my Etsy store blew past the 3,000 views mark last week, much to my delight. I have a pre-Halloween and holiday sale and am adding many more items to shop, some as low as $5! My Etsy link is here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheHauteHen

And WILL RETURNS! Volume 9, “Svetlana Red” of The Vampire’s Little Black Book Series is soon to arrive, followed by v.10 “The Vamp Hit List”. I hope to have the whole series in a collection, “The First Ten Bites” available by Christmas/the holidays.

Thank you for your support. And as always, thank you for reading,

Victoria

Getting Wiggy With It and Changes

I have eight wigs, none of which of are real human hair. Now that I’m working for a costume/Halloween store full time, I have access to even more strands of colorful delight.

Last month I decided I was done with the rat race, the nine to five.  I quit a new day job I’d only had for six weeks. Although the pay was good and it was in my field,  some things I was promised at the onset didn’t evolve. I had just been through seven years of that madness in my previous employment. I’d decided I wasn’t going to go through another seven years of not being happy and broken promises.  So I quit and went full time to a fun job that will also allow me to write and create more. I was ready to make a leap of faith, ready to change.

It’s put another delay in finishing “Strax and the Widow”, but I am much happier and less stressed.

I find inspiration everywhere in the shop, in all the fun costumes and accessories.  I love the endless styles of wigs.  They too help me to change. I’m happy to share a bit of the selection here. Enjoy, I’ll keep you posted on the nifty things coming soon. And note I have reduced prices for a pre-Halloween sale in my Etsy store, so please take a gander.
