I’m celebrating 1,000 followers on The Brass Trap *and* DTfG’s brand new cover design by giving away TWO autographed copies of this “kick-ass feminist steampunk” novel.
My husband’s Bechdel-Test-passing, indie-published novel is getting great reviews on Amazon:

“Turn of the (last) century historical fiction featuring engaging women as the main characters…can’t wait for part two. Funny, richly detailed, and action packed. Such a pleasure to read.”
“Amazingly well written. The pace is steady and engaging.”

 And from Tumblr book bloggers:

Literature Love Affair: 5 Stars, I Loved this Book “…strong debut novel infused with brilliant characters and feminist literature…Seriously, read this book.  I cannot stress this enough.”  http://literatureloveaffair.tumblr.com/post/87189449709/dicing-time-for-gladness  
YABookers: 4 Stars, It was Really Great “If you enjoy feminism and women challenging the norm then I highly suggest you read this!” http://yabookers.tumblr.com/post/89868176771/dicing-time-for-gladness-by-austin-scott-collins
