Today is launch day for the steampunk fairy tale collection I'm part of and I'm very happy to announce that it's free on Smashwords and will soon be free on Amazon too. If, in the meantime, you wanted to buy one at Amazon it's 99c :)
Here's the blurb:
A toyshop owner builds a set of magic clockwork dolls that delight a factory town. A three-inch tall samurai faces a giant iron ogre with only a sewing needle and a coin. A scientist seeks an antidote to his formula gone wrong, with the help of his partner’s beautiful daughter.
All of these stories and more are included in Steampunk Fairy Tales. Written by authors from three different continents, every enchanting tale combines the futuristic Victorian concept of steam and fashion with memorable stories, from the recognizable “Jack and the Beanstalk”, to other popular and unfamiliar works from Germany, France, Italy and Japan.
With steam driven gadgets such as mechanical goggles, hoverboards, and an orchestra of automatons. Steampunk Fairy Tales is a charming and unique collection of works for current lovers of the genre, and those just diving in.
And starting tomorrow for Oz and on the 28th for the US, there's a launch event on Facebook where you can win prizes from each of the authors. Check it out and let us know what you think!
