An Antipodean Steampunk Christmas

Here in Australia we celebrate Christmas in July — an excuse for good company and good food in the middle of winter. In the spirit of cheering up these cold months, I’m offering a giveaway of the anthology, “A Clockwork Christmas“. If you live in Australia or New Zealand, I’ll send you a paper copy. These are rare; only a handful were printed as author copies. If you live in the US, PG Forte, one of my wonderful antho sister’s will send you a paper copy. Everywhere else, I’m sorry. Your copy will be digital. International postage is ridiculously expensive. Leave a comment on this post to go in the draw to win. Contest closes 8 July. Good luck!

We Wish You a Steampunk Christmas

Changed forever after tragedy, a woman must draw strength from her husband’s love. A man learns that love isn’t always what you expect. A thief steals the heart of a vengeful professor. And an American inventor finds love Down Under. Enjoy Victorian Christmas with a clockwork twist in these four steampunk novellas.

Anthology includes:

Crime Wave in a Corset by Stacy Gail

This Winter Heart by PG Forte

Wanted: One Scoundrel by Jenny Schwartz

Far From Broken by JK Coi

Stories also available for purchase separately.

  1. With the help of I've picked 3 winners:

    My email shouting hooray! and asking for your postal addresses should hit your inboxes in a few minutes.

    Thanks everyone who dropped in and said lovely things. You've no idea how much you brightened my week 🙂

    Happy Christmas in July, one and all!

  2. How fun to celebrate in July. Seems strange to think Christmas since its a hundred degrees right now where I am.

    1. That 100 degrees is OUR Christmas here in Australia. Salads, cold meat, ice cream … traditional dinner is a tad different down here, which is why Christmas in July works for us 🙂

      Good luck surviving your summer. Wishing you lots of ice and ice cream and air conditioning

  3. I love how there are more and more Steampunk writer's being published it is a fantastic genre. Well done Jenny.

  4. I'd be interested in winning your book. I've enjoyed the Cassandra Claire series and Phillip Reeve's Larklight series. Your anthology sounds interesting! I love the combinations of Victorian "things" and interesting characters and the feelings they invoke in the process of entertaining us!

    1. Nancy, I've heard so many good things about the Infernal Devices series. It's on my To Be Read list (along with waaaay too many others!). That mix of old and new AND magic really appeals.

  5. I would have never read this book if it weren't for P.G. Forte. I am a contempory romance girl through and through. But I love P.G.'s books, so I have read everything she has published. I am so glad I did! This book is amazing!

    (don't enter me, I have it and love it)

  6. I am looking forward to reading it, wherever it comes from!

    I live in the Pacific Northwest – it's still winter here. We could hold a very authentic-seeming Christmas celebration in July.

      You'll have to send me some snow! Maybe my "winter" day today will even be warmer than your summer one. Blue skies, sunshine & 70 degrees. Not that I'm trying to make David envious 😉

      I hope you get some summer soon

    1. Oh well, what's summer, anyway. It's not like anything important is happening in England this year … like Jubilees or Olympics!

      Thanks for dropping by 🙂

    1. Steampunk has so much style and attitude — I can understand why the mainstream (like Prada most recently) is going there for inspiration.

      And thanks for the kind words! 🙂

    1. I can't decide which I love more — ebooks or paper books — one is instant gratification (I love buying books for my kindle … snap! and they're there), but the other is just so comfortable … although with double stacked bookshelves, I probably need to shift to digital books 🙂

  7. Steam punk is a new to me genre. I would love to get my hands on this book to help me get started. Congrats on your release!
