Cover Art - "Steamed: A Steampunk Romance" by Katie MacAlister

Now this looks absolutely delicious. Steamed: A Steampunk Romance comes out next February from paranormal romance writer Katie MacAlister. I for one would like to see more of this sub genre. Visit her website or blog for more information.

Jack Fletcher's heart is about to get punked.
Computer technician Jack Fletcher is no hero, despite his unwelcome reputation as one. In fact, he's just been the victim of bizarre circumstances. Like now. His sister happens to disturb one of his nanoelectromechanical system experiments, and now they aren't where they're supposed to be. In fact, they're not sure where they are when…

…they wake up to see a woman with the reddest hair Jack has ever seen-and a gun. Octavia Pye is an Aerocorps captain with a whole lot of secrets, and she's not about to see her maiden voyage ruined by stowaways. But the sparks flying between her and Jack just may cause her airship to combust and ignite a passion that will forever change the world as she knows it…

  1. I like Katie's books! But what is 'steampunk'?

  2. Steampunk combines vintage worlds (think the Edwardian era and Sherlock Holmes) with advanced, but kooky, technology. Sometimes magic comes into play.

    Did you ever see Will Smith's Wild, Wild West? That's steampunk.

  3. Cover looks interesting. Never read MacAlister before. Still deciding if Steampunk is the type of books I would enjoy.

  4. Caffey Liana hits it pretty good below, also think Jules Verne 20,000 Leagues or Well's Time Machine or the train in Back to the Future 3 or even the moveie The LEague oif Extraordinary Gentlemen.

    Great definition Liana.

    KB if you ever decide to give it a try maybe consider Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliassotti

  5. This is great cover art, I've read a little steampuck, mostly graphic novels. I love some of the anime that falls into this category.
