Repost: The Cogsmith’s Daughter by Kate M. Colby

Happy Friday, everyone!

I found this today and thought I’d share it. Looks like a great concept by a serious new author, and the behind-the-scenes process notes are cool.

I find projects (and websites) like this incredibly satisfying. I love it when an author has clearly taken the time to think through her content and presentation to deliver high-quality, worthwhile material. And I’m just talking about the website – the book itself looks like it’s going to be killer.

Any other serious new authors doing great work out there? Point me in their direction. I eat this stuff up.

Cheers!
