Happy Holidays! Here’s a little something for your stocking! As a holiday gift for her fans, Melanie Karsak wrote Chasing Christmas Past, a short story prequel to the steampunk romantic adventure series, The Airship Racing Chronicles. Are you ready to meet Lily Stargazer and her crew? If you are new to steampunk, this will be a fantastic, feel-good series starter for you! Join us in 1820 London (think Dickens’ A Christmas Carol) for the Yuletide Airship Race
Christmas Eve 1820.
At Rose’s Hopper, a popular London tavern frequented by airship jockeys, all is merry and bright—except Lily Stargazer. Lily and her crew are set to run the Christmas Day Yuletide Airship Race from London to Calais, but not before spending the night swimming in mulled wine and longing for absent lovers.
Even the prospect of a Yuletide win can’t convince Lily that this Christmas will be better than any that came before. But Lily’s about to find out there really is a Father Christmas.
