Steampunk Media: Steamed (a Romantic Novel)



I must admit, when I first saw this promo for Steampunk novel, I didn't know what to think, as most Steampunk literature releases do not have dedicated video promos.  However, after doing a bit of research, Miss MacAlister has indeed published very well received novels, with previous works debuting quite high on the New York Times Best Seller's list and on the Publishers's Weekly list, which is very encouraging for her upcoming book, Steamed.  Additionally, the fact that a well-spoken author has chosen to take a foray into Steampunk can only be a good thing for the genre.

After watching the advert, one receives an idea of it's premise, but as the book will be released in February, any reviews of it will (obviously) have to wait.  In the mean time, to learn more about the author, her new book (including an excerpt of her writing), her previous releases, and more, please follow the link to her website.  I shall be looking forward to its release next month!

hmmm ... a steampunk case for the kindle would look nice ! ;)

Liz Maverick's new book Crimson & Steam is also a steampunk novel. I highly recommend it, as well as Gail Carriger's Soulless. You can check out Liz's book at www.lizmaverick.com as well as www.gailcarriger.com.

@ Mr. Wildstar - LOL! Well, I have yet to indulge in that vice, so I do wish you the best of luck with the electronic temptation,sir!

@ Miss Mahon - Ingriguing, madam... thank you for the leads on those works!

@ Miss Carver - It was a unique promo, and if you finish it before I do, please do forward your impressions, madam. It would be good to learn how it was from a reader of the work.
