New Release: Steampunk Fairy Tales

We’re live with the anthology! I’ll let Angela Castillo, the project’s fearless leader, give you the info:

Steampunk Fairy Tales 1600x2500

Drum roll PLEASE!!! We are thrilled to announce you can now upload Steampunk Fairy Tales on Smashwords for any platform for free here:,
and for 99 cents from Amazon Kindle, if you prefer that format:…/…/ref=sr_1_2…
Sorry about the price difference, we are still working on getting the Kindle book free but it may be a few weeks. But it’s worth 99 cents! We would absolutely love your opinion of our book, if you could please leave us an honest review it would be lovely. Hope you enjoy!


And 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. 


Saturday Music: The Doctor’s Wife

Today’s music selection is in celebration of the upcoming release of the Steampunk Fairy Tales anthology that I’m a part of! Please feel free to join us for Steampunk goodness and discussions as well as some giveaways by the authors involved.


For me, Steampunk is not just the trappings of the society (although I love the Victorian Era) but the idea of pushing science beyond human reckoning. This song definitely captures this idea and is definitely similar to one of the stories in our upcoming anthology!


Cover Reveal!

So last blog, I mentioned some big news that I was looking forward to sharing with y’all.

Myself and a number of authors from Scribophile, the writing workshop I’m part of, are releasing a Steampunk Fairy Tale anthology! We’re aiming for a March 28th release date with plans for it to be perma-free via Amazon, Smashwords, and a couple other sites.

This will be my first publication as well as Chris Champe’s -my husband- so I’m super excited!

I’m further proud to say that we have the cover, done by Indigo Forest Designs:

Steampunk Fairy Tales 1600x2500
