Today is Tremontaine day. Every Wednesday is, because that’s when we release new episodes in ebook and audio. Today we’re up to episode 3, Joel Derfner’s “Heavenly Bodies” — if you need to get caught up, you can subscribe at SerialBox.com or pick up episodes wherever you prefer to buy ebooks and audiobooks.
Today is also a Tremontaine day around here, because we can now reveal the cover for the episode written by Patty Bryant and myself, “A Fair Hand.”
Episode 6 – A Fair Hand
Tess shows her stuff. Micah ponders society.
The annual Tremontaine Ball is always the event of the season. But now, with the family fortune at stake, Diane assembles her guest list with all the cunning of a general preparing a battle plan. As the chocolate merchants of the City, led by the Balam family, debate how to respond to the Duchess’s unprecedented invitation, Micah, eager to help her family, makes plans to crash the party. And Kaab finds that learning from Vincent Applethorpe is a painful experience.
This episode is brought to you by Racheline Maltese and Patty Bryant, who cordially extend you an invitation to the Ball.
A Fair Hand is part of the 13-episode serial, Tremontaine, presented by Serial Box. This prequel to the cult classic Swordspoint is brought to you by the collaborative effort of a team of writers under the creative direction of Ellen Kushner herself.
