Well, this is the day I’ve been waiting for my whole life, I guess.

I’m not trying to oversell it, I promise.

I will have many thoughts about the self-publishing process later. For now, I am incredibly proud of this thing and the work it has taken me to get to this point. I’m also so grateful for the support from my friends (Alex, I’m looking at you) who have assured me that I’m not delusional for wanting this book to be in the world and not collecting dust on my hard drive.

Thank you for picking this book. Thank you for giving me a chance.

And don’t forget to come hang out with me tonight (Feb. 20) at 7 p.m. EST!

Here is the brief summary:

Katrya Millor’s dream of running her own steam-powered airship – and following her father’s memory over the mountains – is within reach. The only thing standing in her way is a man with a grudge… and a justice system that seems to want to lock up her Navigator no matter what they do.

In this world of airships and magic, the ships are kept afloat by the powers of tattooed criminals looked down upon by the true citizens of the realm—men that have been forced into servitude in order to pay for their crimes. When Ree’s Navigator, Ien, the tattooed man whose powers of wind fly her ship, is arrested in Briia, she doesn’t hesitate to bust him out. However, a strange encounter with a disturbing man leaves both of them unsettled. They flee across the range to the capital, Praan.

When the unthinkable happens in Praan and Ree is forced to look inside her own memories for answers to both her father’s past failures and her present concerns, how far will she go to see that dream fulfilled? What is waiting beyond the mountains? Is it worth her best friend’s life?

In the great city of Praan, a breeze kicks up. It is spurred by magic, by people with color-shifting tattoos that can tell the wind to dance. The breeze whips around the tall standards lining the edge of the city perched on the mountainside. It swirls out into the Void, the great chasm between mountains. The valley floor is so, so, so far below. Ree has to make a choice: her own dream, or her Navigator’s freedom. The wind howls down the mountainside. Hopefully she makes the right decision.
