Monday’s Friend: Melisse Aires
Today I am pleased to welcome writer Melisse Aires to my blog, who presents her case as to why we should read steampunk romance.
Top Ten Reasons To Try Steampunk Romance
By Melisse Aires
1 Victorian clothes are so cool.
2 It is the only genre that might pair a governess with a space captain.
3 You are a secret Browncoat.
4 The Mad Scientist might be the nerdy but hawt hero.
5 Robots and flying machines abound.
6 Fine hand-embroidered undergarments add a nice touch to love scenes.
7 Your Gallant Hero might pack a laser gun.
8 You enjoy grand adventure in your romance.
9 You secretly desired Dr. Emmet and Clara Brown’s Hovertrain in Back to the Future III
10 A Lady can be resourceful and use her parasol, laser or hatpin in sticky situations.
I hope you will give it a whirl. My Steampunk/spacewestern releases November 1st!
