Set in a world of NeoVictorian conspiracy and mechanical augmentation, Lisa Mantchev's highly-anticipated new steampunk novel tells the story of a girl with a clockwork heart who must race to save her family and keep her heart ticking when the man who created her heart is put on trial for murder and her family is kidnapped and held ransom for his research. For the chance to get your hands on the captivating tale of imagination, mystery, adventure, and heart before anyone else, join us as we celebrate its release at a launch party during Small Business Saturday featuring a reading, discussion, and signing with Mantchev.
Lisa Mantchev is a temporally-displaced Capricorn who casts her spells from an ancient tree in the Pacific Northwest. When not scribbling, she is by turns an earth elemental, English professor, actress, artist, and domestic goddess. She shares her abode with her husband, two children, and three hairy miscreant dogs.
She is best known as the author of the young adult fantasy trilogy, The Théâtre Illuminata. Published by Feiwel & Friends (Macmillan,) the series includes the Andre Norton and Mythopoeic awards-nominated EYES LIKE STARS (2009), PERCHANCE TO DREAM (2010), and SO SILVER BRIGHT (2011.) Lisa's short fiction has also appeared in venues like Clarkesworld, Weird Tales, Fantasy Magazine and Strange Horizons.
