To save her father…
 

…she must take to the sky.
 

But will it be enough?
 

Zaira von Monocle has big shoes to fill, inheriting the airship Liliana in the middle of one of the most devastating wars the kingdom of Rislandia has ever faced. 

Leadership, loyalty, and fighting aren't all she has to learn in this steampunk series which has gone on to become a #1 Bestseller in Steampunk on Amazon. 

Read the series so many readers have fallen in love with, with this special signed hardcover edition celebrating the 2nd anniversary of the award-winning For Steam And Country's release. With delivery in time for Christmas! 

5-star reader reviews of For Steam And Country

"A great piece of swashbuckling adventure." 

"Serious fun in a unique fantasy world you haven't quite seen before."

"Well written, absorbing, unpredictable, imaginative."

The Books: 

Backers will be receiving signed collector's edition hardcovers of the following books (which the ebooks and softcovers are available on Amazon at the links below for those who wish to check out or see book previews/reviews):

For Steam And Country -  Zaira inherits her airship and must command it to rescue her father from the clutches of the enemy Wyranth.

The Blood of Giants - Zaira takes her airship to the foreign continent of Zenwey in order to try to find a cure for soldiers suffering withdrawals from a giant's blood serum. 

The Fight For Rislandia - The Wyranth have invaded, sacking Rislandia City itself. Only Zaira and her airship can save the kingdom. 

The Iron Wedding - Will Zaira marry the evil Iron Emperor in order to bring peace to Rislandia? 

The Short Story Pack: 

Backers will get a short story pack of stories crucial to the Rislandian Saga. 

  • "Tangled Web" is a story of the Liliana's pilot Major Ral when the ship was decommissioned following Baron von Monocle's alleged death, which plays into later events in the series. 
  • "Baron von Monocle And The Island Of The Fey" - Wonder what it was like on the ship when Theodore von Monocle was in command? This is one of his early adventures.
  • "The Front Line" is a story following Corporal Tyson from The Fight From Rislandia as he joins his comrades on the line to do battle with the Wyranth after the events of the book. 
  • Plus a brand new short story just for this campaign!  

The Writer: 

Jon Del Arroz is known as the leading Hispanic voice in science fiction. He's run 3 successful crowdfunds for his comic book work, and released 9 prose books in science fiction and fantasy. His books have been #1 bestsellers, won awards, and been hailed by readers as a return to the classic sense of wonder that sci-fi promised. 


What's The Crowdfund For? 

The crowdfund will pay for the set up fees for the printer, the formatting involved in making hardcovers, and print costs. This is a Quickstarter- simple and only running for 15 days so we can get these books out quick! 

Risks and challenges

I've successfully delivered on three crowdfunds for graphic novels: Flying Sparks Volumes 1 and 2 and The Ember War. When this project launches, the books are already complete. I do not anticipate any problems. However, if there are any shipping delays or hiccups with the printer, you'll be the first to know. The book will be published by Superversive Press, a small press which has been in print for over three years with more than a dozen books in print.
