The Books of Joan Wendland

Mr. Darcy: Cogs Maketh the Man.

Who hasn't read Pride and Prejudice and said to themselves - that was a great read, but it would be even better with air ships and clockwork servants! So buckle up for this steampunk reimagining of the Jane Austen classic as told from Mr. Darcy's perspective.

Backstage: A Novel of Secret Agendas, Slow Burn Romance, and Imaginary Cats

CC Law, 36, single, and on the edge of bankruptcy joined the secret society for a steady paycheck. She never counted on mystery, romance, or a chance to change the world one improbable increment at a time. Join CC as she attempts to decipher just who runs Backstage, and what is the source of their seemingly limitless power.

Looking for Trouble: Backstage Book 2

CC Law and her team have a new and terrifying assignment. Even the resources of Backstage may not be enough to avert the coming disaster. Can a secret society thousands of years old fail in their duty to cure the hidden cancer at the core of three different countries? Not if CC can help it!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The games of Blood and Cardstock

Showbiz Shuffle is an exciting new card game for 2-4 people. Collect actors and directors, then combine them with stunts, special effects or other pluses to make the biggest box office hits. Out-mogul your friends - or if that doesn't work try giving them bad ratings or a drinking problem! The most fun you can have without making it into Entertainment Weekly!

This game is rated PG-13. Recommended for players age 13 and up. You can reduce the game's rating to G by removing some cards. Removal of cards will not effect gameplay

Counting Zzzzs is a surreal new card game for 2-4 people. You and the other players are trying to get a good night's sleep. That means getting some good REM time in. During REM you will dream, and who knows what dreams may come? Some dreams are good, some bad, and some merely help you clear your head for the new day. Try to assemble a pleasant dream while your opponents try to give you nightmares or wake you up. It's the most fun you can have in your sleep!

X-Machina is the fun party game where you make impossible inventions out of improbable components for unreasonable customers. Tons of fun for 4-8 players.In addition to 240 Cog cards and 60 beautifully illustrated Req cards, X-Machina also comes with a glossary so you can look up Cogs you might not be completely familiar with.
