Read full description of the books:
This fantasy novel features psychic powers and steampunk in the otherwise pre-industrial world of Malga. Promono-Dei the World-Queen has a jewel called the Oracular Topaz which will answer any question, except about the future. Her great antagonist is Kordo-Strî, leader of the great naval dominion of Nobalos. Kordo-Strî manipulates people’s thoughts, but falling short of full mind control. These two are at war for domination of Malga.
At the beginning of the novel, Promono-Dei is crowned World-Queen. She defeats Nobalos’ allies one by one. Then she confronts a more dangerous coalition, including Âryoso-Rûn, King of Roude-Kî, Nobalos’ powerful but wavering ally. But even before Âryoso-Rûn’s army can arrive, her soldiers have already been driven back by Nobalos’ other forces. Meanwhile, Kordo-Strî’s husband has invented Malga’s first steam-powered warship for the Nobalan navy.
Nobalos, with two other wars to fight, must win quickly. Promono-Dei must win quickly because one of her allies has betrayed her. Meanwhile, the revolutionary Nobalan steamship is launched. The fate of the Hegemony, Nobalos and all Malga hangs in the balance.

Read information about the authorI attended suburban Atlanta public schools before earning a BA in History from Davidson College in Davidson, NC and an MA in Journalism from the Henry Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia at Athens, GA. However, like many refugees from the liberal arts, I then moved into the computer field.
A native of Nashville, TN, I lived in Atlanta from the age of three, not counting out-of-state college, until I moved to Memphis to take a contract computer job on the notorious "Y2K Problem" in the spring of 1999. Having saved the world from disaster (with a little help from thousands of other computer professionals all around the world), I moved from Memphis to Raleigh in the fall of 2000 and worked for the city government. On April 7, 2010, I left the city and became a full-time writer.
I did NOT write "Kept Sissy" and "Sissy maid." Those are works of the other Betty Cross on Goodreads. Goodreads successfully separated her books from mine. Before I got them to do that, there was considerable confusion.
Nearly everybody that knew me before I left the City of Raleigh IT Department knew me as Steve Cross. The fact is, I'm transgendered, and I dropped the male role and my male name in 2010 and will be known from now on as Betty Cross. My relatives know and are supportive. My friends in sci-fi and fantasy fandom know this and they support my decision too. My future works will all be published under the name of Betty Cross.
In my spare time, I like to read all kinds of books, visit with my nephews and nieces, surf the Internet, celebrate Jewish religious holidays, attend science-fiction/fantasy conventions (when I can afford them), and share a loving relationship with my wife Helen Simmons. We have successfully weaned ourselves from the television habit.
