They say death can

be beautiful. But after the death of her mother, seventeen-year-old Raven

Weathersby gives up her dream of becoming a fashion designer, barely surviving

life in the South Carolina lowlands.


To make ends meet, Raven works after school as a seamstress creating stunning

works of fashion that often rival the great names of the day.


Instead of making things easier on the high school senior, her stepdad’s

drinking leads to a run in with the highly reclusive heir to the Maddox family

fortune, Gideon Maddox.


But Raven’s stepdad’s drying out and in no condition to attend the meeting with

Maddox. So Raven volunteers to take his place and offers to repay the debt in

order to keep the only father she’s ever known out of jail, or worse.


Gideon Maddox agrees, outlining an outrageous demand: Raven must live in his

home for a year while she designs for Maddox Industries’ clothing line, signing

over her creative rights.


Her handsome young captor is arrogant and infuriating to the nth degree, and

Raven can’t imagine working for him, let alone sharing the same space for more

than five minutes.


But nothing is ever as it seems. Is Gideon Maddox the monster the world

believes him to be? And can he stand to let the young seamstress see him as he

really is?


Praise for THE ARTISANS:


Artisans has all the elements I love – spooky intrigue, strong friendships, and

a romantic tension to be savored.”  ~ Wendy Higgins, New York Times

bestselling author of the Sweet Evil trilogy.

“Read The

Artisans in the middle of the night with a flashlight if you dare. The perfect

blend of romance and horror with a strong female lead kept me reading through

the night.”~ L.S. Murphy author of PIXELATED Bloomsbury Spark and REAPERJ.

Taylor Publishing



That book was so freakin’ good! Intense, insane, freaky at parts and sooooo

good! I haven’t had emotions like this about a book in a long time!”~

Mindy Blogger @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads

“The first

thing I thought when I finished this book was ‘dang, I would love to see this

as a movie’. The Artisans has such an awesome and haunting concept to it plus I

just adore all of the characters.”~Jena Blogger @ Shortie Says


Artisans was a unique modern day retelling of Beauty and the Beast filled with

mystery, romance and wonderful characters. From the first page I was completely

lost in the wonderful setting that Reece created.”~Bridget Blogger @ Dark

Faerie Tales





Born in Ohio, I lived next to my grandfather’s horse farm

until the fourth grade. Summers were about riding, fishing and make-believe,

while winter brought sledding and ice-skating on frozen ponds. Most of life was

magical, but not all.


I struggled with multiple learning disabilities, did not excel in school. I

spent much of my time looking out windows and daydreaming. In the fourth grade

(with the help of one very nice teacher) I fought dyslexia for my right to

read, like a prince fights a dragon in order to free the princess locked in a

tower, and I won.


Afterwards, I read like a fiend. I invented stories where I could be the

princess… or a gifted heroine from another world who kicked bad guy butt to win

the heart of a charismatic hero. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? Later,

I moved to Florida where I continued to fantasize about superpowers and

monsters, fabricating stories (my mother called it lying) and sharing them with

my friends.


Then I thought I’d write one down…


Hooked, I’ve been writing ever since. I write historical, contemporary, urban

fantasy, adventure, and young adult romances.


I love strong heroines, sweeping tales of mystery and epic adventure… which

must include a really hot guy. My writing is proof you can work hard to

overcome any obstacle. Don’t give up. I say, if you write, write on!

Author: Leigh Statham

Pub. Date: March 17, 2015

Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.

Pages: 297

Formats: Hardcover, eBook

Lady Marguerite lives a life most 17th century French girls

can only dream of: money, designer dresses, suitors and a secure future. Except

she suspects she may be falling for her best friend Claude, a common smithie in

the family’s steam forge.


When Claude leaves for New France in search of a better life, Marguerite

decides to follow him and test her suspicions of love. But the trip proves more

harrowing than she had anticipated, revealing secrets and testing her strength

as well as her heart. Love, adventure and restitution await her in Canada, but

only if she can survive the voyage.


“The writing is solid and the world-building – that

clever combination of historical detail and Ms. Statham’s imagination – is

excellent.”~ The Australia Times


“I’d give more

than five stars if I could. I’d recommend this to anyone who is a fan of

young adult steampunk, girls who aren’t afraid to wield guns and wear pants in

an age of dresses, adventure, and a dash of romance.” ~Bitches

n Prose

“ I ADORED this story, and these characters, and I

don’t want to give too much away. It is all worth stumbling across on your own!

With a cover to drool over, fantastic characters, a simmering romance, awesome

historical settings, and majorly cool steampunk elements, The Perilous Journey

of the Not-So-Innocuous Girl (awesome title) easily captivated me, and now that

it is over I want MORE!” ~ The

Best Books Ever


“  I’ve only recently discovered Steampunk, and

every story that I read in this genre makes me love it even more. The Perilous

Journey of the Not-So-Innocuous Girl was such an adventure! This book is

rich in so many things and lacking absolutely nothing.”~ Pretty

Little Pages




Leigh Statham was raised in the wilds of rural Idaho, but

found her heart in New York City. She worked as a waitress, maid, artist, math

teacher, nurse, web designer, art director, thirty-foot inflatable pig and mule

wrangler before she settled down in the semi-quiet role of wife, mother and

writer. She resides in North Carolina with her husband, four children, five

chickens and two suspected serial killer cats. If the air is cool and the sun

is just coming up over the horizon, you can find her running the streets of her

small town, plotting her next novel with the sort of intensity that will one

day get her hit by a car.
