With October fast approaching, the official release of the SteamPunk romance, Steamy Cogs, is right around the corner! The release date is this Sunday, October 1st. My newest short story, “Sing of Song of Freedom,” is included in this compilation of four romantic shorts, written in the SteamPunk style.
Meet Zee, a naive young woman struggling to get back her lost memories. As images slowly start coming back to her, Zee realizes that she may have brought unintended trouble to her new friends, Alice and Dylan. A passion as hot as the desert sun is ignited inside Zee for Dylan, but she slowly realizes that another man is searching for her. Will everything unravel before Zee is able to piece together her memories in time?
This was my first SteamPunk adventure, and I enjoyed writing in this style. I just loved how the scenery is in the past, yet in the future all at the same time. It was quite different from anything I have written before, yet the themes running underneath it are ones that I revisit from time to time. All in all, it’s similar to a dystopian piece, but has its own unique feel to it. This story was just wonderful, and I would love to write another SteamPunk story one day.
So please check out the stories in the new collection by Eighth Ripple Press. All four authors have their own take on the theme, which leaves each story mesmerizing in its own way. I hope you enjoy reading our stories as well as we loved writing them! 🙂
