W.W.W. Wednesdays is a weekly event brought to you by MizB from Should Be Reading.  To play along, answer the following questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you are going to read next?

Here is my WWW for today:

What are you currently reading?  I am reading Einstein Must Die (Fate of Nations Book #1) by Chris Kohout.   It is a steampunk sci-fi novel.  Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American “Wild West”.  This book is a mix between the two as it is about brewing war between America and England.  It is my first and I am really enjoying it.  Check it out:

Synopsis:  1910 AD – Impending war with England has given Nikola Tesla the chance to build his dream: a weapon to end all wars. The American steam-powered Beowulf tank is larger than a house, and carries enough firepower to face an army. Beowulf also has a mechanical brain, embedded with the consciousness of Colonel Browning, America’s best military strategist.

But in England, King George has put Albert Einstein to work for his own war effort: zeppelins capable of reaching the former colony, and new, radiological bombs to remind them of the price of disloyalty.

When two brilliant pacifists wield technology to bring peace to a planet at war, the final outcome will surprise them both, and the world.

What did you recently finish reading?  I just finished reading The Wronged Sons by John Marrs.  This was a great first novel full of twists and turns.  I highly recommend it.  I’ve also included a link to John’s site on my left sidebar under “Great Indie Authors”.  Pay him a visit!  You can see my review of The Wronged Sons here.

What do you think you are going to read next?   I am going to read The Santa Claus League by Stephen D. Miller just in time for Christmas!.  Check it out below.

Synopsis:  Julia Martin is the most incredible girl in school, and Mason Howell is hopelessly smitten by her. Julia is in charge of the local Charity Christmas party and she’s pleased with how everything is going…until her Santa Claus calls in sick. In a panic, she begs Mason to help her by wearing his grandfather’s heirloom Santa Claus suit. Mason agrees, just to impress the beautiful girl, but things don’t go as planned…as soon as he puts on the suit, he gets all the powers of Santa Claus!

Together with John Patton, Mason’s best friend, they learn his grandfather was a member of an ancient league of men and women dedicated to helping St. Nicholas use Christmas magic to save the world. The three of them could become the newest members of the Santa Claus League…if they can learn the secrets of Christmas magic!

    Oh wow. I haven’t heard of any of these books, but they sound really intriguing. I think The Santa Claus League will be good fun. Enjoy! 🙂

    • Yes, so far so good. I am definitely on an indie kick and really finding it quite fun (and think that is where I may stay for some time). I enjoy helping spread the word for new authors (and authors without large publishing houses/agents) ~Deanna
