Steamed dress

If books were dresses...

(a weekly post where I create fashionable wear with book cover art)

by Katie MacAlister - my review

Release date: February 2, 2010

Description from
Katie Macalister takes on Steampunk-and romance gets hotter than ever...

When one of Jack Fletcher's nanoelectromechanical system experiments is jostled in his lab, the resulting explosion sends him into the world of his favorite novel-a seemingly Victorian-era world of steampower, aether guns, corsets, and goggles. A world where the lovely and intrepid Octavia Pye captains her airship straight into his heart...

Check out the book trailer:
