Teaser Tuesday (4)

I've been having a hard time getting into "Boneshaker". I'm being patient because this is really my first steampunk novel. Yes, I'm a steampunk virgin. Let me say though, that my hard time is more due to a time constraint and other pesky life things getting in the way than any animosity towards the characters or the writing. I AM getting married in 5 weeks, so I'm trying to cut myself some slack. But I came across this quote, from the author Cherie Priest herself about "Boneshaker" and not from the book itself, but I thought it was funny and relevant, so here it is. Her quote alone makes me want to keep reading, especially since I haven't gotten to the zombie part yet....
"OMG YOU GUYS it has come to my attention that SOMEONE on the internet is saying that my fictional 19th century zombies are NOT SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND. Naturally, I am crushed. To think, IF ONLY I’d consulted with a zombologist or two before sitting down to write, I could’ve avoided ALL THIS EMBARRASSMENT." -Cherie Priest
