The Unsteady Earth

Book Four in the Veneficas Americana series. Scheduled for release in 2015

As the world rings in 1911, Will Edwards has little to celebrate. He’s lost the girl he loves. His mother has been driven insane by the spirit of the earth she has served for decades. And he can’t contact his brother Ben, who has been helping him control the dark magic of the family curse he’s inherited. With his every step dogged by warlocks from the shadowy “Agency” intent on taking his power, Will doesn’t know where to turn.

Luckily, he still has his loyal friend Harley Briar on his side. With Harley’s help, Will is reunited with an even more powerful ally: his father, who renounced his magic and his name over thirty years ago. Unravelling the magical conspiracies that have entangled his family will take all Will’s smarts and savvy—but will he be up to the challenge of reconciling with the father who failed to protect him from the evil of Aebedel Cowdray?

    What happened to this book? I’ve been waiting months for this to get published. It was supposed to come out today. Has it been delayed?

      Hello, I’m sorry to say that it has been delayed due to several unfortunate personal setbacks. I’m hoping to have it out sometime in 2014. I really do apologize for the wait.

        I totally understand that sort of thing. I hope things are going better for you. I’ll wait as long as it takes for the next one. Love, love, love this series. I would sign up with the mailing list but the link seems to be broken.

        Happy Holidays, and may the New Year bring you good things.

    It looks like the link to the mailing list is broken. Any info. on where we can go to sign up elsewhere? Or ANY info. on forthcoming stories? Cannot WAIT to read The Unsteady Earth! I came across Native Star in the Vaginal Fantasy book club and have torn through all three books. Thanks for sharing your talent and stories with us all!!

      Hi Marguerite:

      Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement. I’m really sorry for the delay in getting out additional stories and “The Unsteady Earth.” In the past 6 months I’ve gone through divorce, foreclosure, and major surgery … but I’m trying to get back on track. I very much hope to have some progress to report in 2014.

      All my best,
      Mary Hobson
