Jay Noel’s DRAGONFLY WARRIOR Cover Reveal

Wow wow wow! Wotta cover! I’m so tickled that Jay has chosen my blog to be part of his Cover Reveal Street Team!

JayNoelAfter doing some freelance writing and editing for more than a dozen years, Jay decided to stop procrastinating and pursue his dream of being a novelist. He’s been blogging for over eight years, and even had a comedy podcast syndicated all over the internet. All of that was fun, but all the steampunk-inspired stories in his head just wouldn’t leave him alone. Jay spends his days working in medical sales, but he can be found toiling over his laptop late at night when all is quiet.

He draws inspiration from all over: H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Shakespeare, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, and Isaac Asimov.

And Jay loves cookies.

What’s not to like, right?

The Mechanica Wars: Savage Machines Are Afoot…
DragonflyWarriorAt the age of twenty, Kanze Zenjiro’s bloody footprints mark the bodies of those who stood in his way to protect the throne of Nihon. Now, the tyrannical Iberian Empire is bent on destroying his kingdom, and they send their steam-powered giants and iron spiders against him.

Zen embarks on a quest that takes him on the most dangerous journey of his life. To succeed, Zen must live up to his nickname, the Dragonfly Warrior, and kill all his enemies with only a sword and a pair of six-guns. He is called upon to somehow survive a test of faith and loyalty in a world so cruel and merciless, it borders on madness.

Book Information: Dragonfly Warrior is a steampunk adventure like no other. It’s a dynamic mix of Asian and European mythology, the Wild West, martial arts, traditional fantasy, and high powered steam action that will keep you turning the pages.

Dragonfly Warrior is the first book of The Mechanica Wars, and will debut on January 6, 2014.


One word, my sweet little baby angels, one word: WANT!

Jay says:

I will be doing a drawing out of my steampunk hat for the lucky guy/gal who will receive a very cool steampunk bookmark, and I’ll be announcing the winner on my November 11th post.

I appreciate everything, and I can’t thank you enough for your love and support.

Thank YOU, Jay! Can’t wait for the book!

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Invent a book that your main character can’t wait to buy and read.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
