New Cover Alert: Heart of Steel by Meljean Brook

Although the cover for Meljean Brook's Heart of Steel (The Iron Seas #2) was posted awhile ago, it looks like it has undergone some revisions.While it isn't a huge change, I have to say I like the background a lot more. The image of the clouds and air balloon gives the book more steampunk edge. After absolutely falling in love with the first Iron Seas novel, The Iron Duke, I can't wait to get my hands on this one. Unfortunatly, Heart of Steel isn't scheduled for release until November, 2011. BOO!  If you've never read a steampunk romance before, I definitely recommend you start with The Iron Duke.

Check out Meljean's blog to read the jacket copy for Heart of Steel!

Jeeze, don't they know that once a cover like picture is posted anywhere on the web that the blogosphere will jump all over it? Anywho, the 'new cover' is the real cover for Heart of Steel.

  1. I talked to Meljean on twitter when the 'old' cover started showing up here and there and she told me it was not an actual cover. It was just a photo they used in the publisher's catalog. But now we have the 'real' cover and I like it!

  2. Oooooh, that makes sense. I'll have to do an update. Thanks Julie. I need to get a twitter account so I can talk to my fave authors too!

  3. I was reluctant about twitter at first but now I'm on there all the time. It's amazing who you can talk you on there. It's so much fun and the authors are SO NICE!

  4. I saw your post on Fiction Vixen so I figured I'd come check out your site. Thanks for the post--I didn't know the original picture wasn't the actual cover!
