About the Author:5820827

I write stories for the geeky at heart — meaty mash-ups of sci-fi, suspense, and romance, with no apology for the latter. I live where it rains nine months of the year. And I have a strange obsession with gingers (down to my freaky orange cat).

I have two sci-fi romance novels published with Tor Books, and a third on the way. I also have a zombie-ish story, RED, in progress on Wattpad (free!).

My Review:

You had me at Automaton! I really love the choose your own adventure books. The problem is, reviewing them can be really difficult, as pace, plot and even character is not linear for all readers. What I would say though, is that I always seem to make the wrong or the safe decision in these books; it just shows me that, when it comes to love, I’m a bit of a Muppet!

From a writer’s perspective, it was great to have a steampunk adventure, and it was sweet and non-sexual in its content, that said this story has been lumped in with much more erotically charged books, which leaves it’s audience limited to adults. Perhaps there should be imprints in this brand so YA and NA readers can see them too. The banner below doesn’t exactly lend itself to sweet romance.

The front cover is okay, not overly exciting or steampunkish, apart from the man’s outfit. But I guess with the story being altered by reader variables, it’s hard to get the theme of a main story on there.

Overall, I’d give A Heart for Copper, 4 out of 5 stars, even when I choose the wrong paths, it was still exciting and well written.
