Cover Reveal: Steam by Jessica Fortunato

I'd like to introduce you to a short story from one of my dearest authorly friends and a fabulous writer, Jessica Fortunato.  She's already written The Sin Collector and The Sin Collector: Thomas, two gems in her super original paranormal series.  Check out her new story, a clever steampunk romance that I can't wait to dive into.  (Also the cover is gorgeous, isn't it?)  Enjoy!  

Charlotte Amelia Caprice may seem like an ordinary girl.  She has a job she hates, a boss she despises, and zero romantic prospects.   Her friends call her Charlie, when she can keep one for more than a few weeks.  Though Charlie may seem ordinary, she is anything but.  Charlie doesn’t have a heart.  Instead, she has a steam driven machine in her chest, always making her feel less than human.  Gears and pistons have been using her own body heat to pump her blood for over a decade.  There is one small problem.  Her heart is beginning to break. When Charlie meets a brilliant man, one who could save her life, she must choose between being heartless and being alive.  A simple choice for some, but for Charlie living on steam isn’t easy.

Steam is a new short story from author Jessica Fortunato.  Also from Fortunato is The Sin Collector, The Sin Collector: Thomas and the short story Banished which can be found in the Nocturnal Embers Anthology.  She lives in Pittsburgh PA with her family and ever-growing menagerie of pets.

  1. I love this cover! I follow her on pinterest and she keeps pinning BTVS quotes to her Steam board. Makes my Whedonite heart all kinds of curious! :)

    1. She's a huge Buffy fan. I definitely recommend her work! Very similar kind of snark. (:
