Exclusive cover real for WICKED AFTER MIDNIGHT, (Blud book 3) happening today at Bitten by Books. Plus a giveaway.
An electrifying paranormal romance … with a twist!
Only rebellious Demi Ward could be bored with her life as a contortionist in Criminy Stain’s magical traveling circus. But being a cabaret star in the City of Lights is dangerous … especially for an audacious Bludman.
After Demi’s best friend Cherie is brutally kidnapped en route to Paris by a roving band of masked slavers, passionate highwayman Vale Hildebrand shows up to save the day. With his help, Demi rises to the top of the cabaret scene as part of her plot to find Cherie—but what she really discovers is a taste for Vale’s kisses. Meanwhile, wealthy suitors vie for a night of her charms, crowding the glittering club where Demi commands the stage with a host of colorful daimons. She is soon seduced by a smoldering portrait artist whose ties to a secret society could be the break she and Vale need on their hunt. But—unlike the Paris Demi read about in college on Earth—the Paris of Sang is full of depraved pleasures and deadly surprises.
It’s pretty much what would happen if Baz Luhrman had directed Moulin Rouge in a parallel universe filled with steampunk machinery, vampires, and chameleon people. <3

Um, so you have combined carousels, steampunk, and a gryphon? THAT IS PERTINENT TO MY INTERESTS. NAY, MY VERY SOUL.
I’ve submitted a 10-page script to the Steampunk Originals anthology with Arcana. If you like steampunk, murder-mystery stories set on trains, and plucky teen tomboys decoding clues, check it out. The pay’s not there, but it’s a good way to get a byline.
My story: A DEAD MAN ON THE COPPER QUEEN.
A great story for a good cause by a lovely and fantastic author featuring two friends.
This is a story written by Karina Cooper featuring Steampunk Boba Fett and Myself. Half of the proceeds from this story are going to the Make A Wish Foundation. So go pre-order it enjoy a good read and help some children in need.
I can personally vouch for the awesomeness of all three of these people. <3
BTW on my growing interest about steampunk I got Cherie Priest’s Boneshaker, steampunk, alternate history and zombies. Seems interesting.
Question to other steampunk readers, which sort of book shop do you find more steampunk novels? In which section is more likely to find them on a normal book shop?
I get most my books on Amazon but you’re most likely to see steampunk novels in the science fiction section because that’s what genre they fall under.
There’s also a lively bit of steamier steampunk adventure in the Romance section, if one isn’t frightened of a certain sort of cover. Meljean Brook, Kristen Callihan, Bec McMaster, Gail Carriger, Karina Cooper, Kate Locke, Kady Kross, Phillippa Ballantine and Tee Morris. Tons of lovely people telling exciting stories in there.

True love’s kiss isn’t enough for this Blud princess. But blood and music may win her heart forever… .
Delilah S. Dawson’s delightfully dark series takes readers into a clever new world of endless discoveries and sensuous encounters that will leave them breathless.
After four years crammed in a suitcase, drained and unconscious, Ahnastasia Feodor, Crown Princess of Freesia, is not sure which calls to her more: the sound of music or the scent of blood. The source of both is the handsome and mysterious Casper Sterling, once the most celebrated and self-centered musician in Sangland. Fortunately, bleeding one’s subjects dry is expected of Blud royalty. Much to Ahna’s frustration, however, the debauched and reckless enigma—he is definitely not a Bludman, though not exactly human either—is her only ticket back to her snow-rimmed and magical homeland. Ahna needs Casper’s help to defeat an evil sorceress and claim her throne—if she doesn’t drain him first. But as they team up for a harrowing journey filled with pirates and painted ladies, daimons and dashing Bludmen, her craving for blood becomes an unrelenting hunger of the heart… .
"No sophomore series slump here, as Dawson invites readers back into the land of Sang, where Bluds (vampires) rule and Pinkies (humans) struggle to survive. Told mostly from the viewpoint of a dethroned Blud princess, Wicked as She Wants is delightfully edgy with hidden charms— and Ahnastasia is definitely no shrinking violet. Dawson is on the fast track to the top of the genre!" -RT Book Review - 4 1/2 stars, HOT!
