More About the Author

Former Host of Georgia Public Radio's "Georgia Gazette" Emilie P. Bush has traded in writing the news for writing Steampunk. Her debut novel, Chenda and the Airship Brofman, sends Chenda and her companions up in the air, across a desert, through a mountain and under the sea in a thrilling adventure. Emilie P. Bush lives and writes in Atlanta. Currently, Emilie is writing the follow up to Chenda - Called The Gospel According to Verdu, and a modern mythological fantasy entitled Cryptid.

"I started in radio, writing and reading the news. The first national story I sold was when I was 19 years old, working in the WOUB news room in Athens, Ohio. A chemical plant in Belpre, Ohio, had exploded and I broke the story to NPR news. I decided two things on that day: I wanted to cover the arts (as I really felt AWFUL for being happy when lives had been lost) and I was in love with public radio. I worked on and off in radio for the next dozen years - Finally ending up at 'Georiga Gazette.' I left radio - perhaps for good, shortly after my daughter was born. After my second child came along, I started to have this feeling like, 'if I don't write a novel, I'll die a horrible death.' So I started writing, and what flowed out of me was Chenda and the Airship Brofman."

I really loved the men (and the women too, btw) in the story.
Scheherezade for 1,001 nights
The characters are all well drawn and compelling and the technology is well visualized.

I've already bought The Gospel According to Verdu and look forward to reading it.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! Nicely written to keep me involved, I couldn't put this book down. The characters are lovely, and the atmosphere delightful. AND full of suspense. Unique and intelligent, I had never heard of steampunk before this but now I can't wait to read more. Especially of Chenda and the Airship Brofman. Hopefully this is just the beginning of Chenda's adventures because this is a world I want to visit again and again.

The characters in this book become so real that I want a sequel to be ready yesterday. I felt pulled to read the next page and yet I did not want the book to end. This book is well written and immediately engaging your own imagination. The characters become like friends that you want to keep communicating with long after the book is finished. I am ready for the sequel or give me any book by Emilie P. Bush.

Keep in mind I am a reader, not a writer. This book is written by a friend of mine. I read the first chapter on her blog and begged her to publish it so I could read the rest. I was not disappointed. I LOVED this book.

As any great book this one was very hard to put down at night. Yes, I had a few bad mornings after reading just a few more pages. She wrote about people who you could believe to be real, who you wanted to believe in, who you want to learn more about. The story in enjoyable, with some technical talk that I could believe in and understand, yet put it "not here/now". It is not a romance, yet has some. It is not a thriller, yet has it's moments. It is not a travel log but talks of another place. I guess the best way to put it is... I liked the end, it felt "right" but I want more.

I anticipated that "Chenda and the Airship Brofman" would be a good book, what I found was that it was an excellent book. Very well written and printed, this book was a well-paced adventure that even with it's attention to detail, did not bog down the reading with overly technical description. Having only experienced steampunk in anime and film, I had no problem getting caught up in this tale that was hard to put down once I got started. Given the chance, "Chenda and the Airship Brofman" would make a nice start to a series of adventures. After finishing the book, and finally placing it on the bookshelf, I have but one thing left to say, "More please."

This novel will remind you of Indiana Jones movies (the good ones!) while catapulting you into an alternate world that you will want to visit by the time you finish the book. It's compulsively readable and lots of fun. I'm hoping for a sequel!

This book really drew me in, and I found myself staying up until 1:30 a.m. on several occasions because I just couldn't put it down. Ms. Bush has done an excellent job building a believable world, where the steampunk elements fit seamlessly into the narrative. The back stories for the Republic and Empire, as well as for the characters themselves, lend an air of realism to the story. This book was a really fun adventure from start to finish, and Ms. Bush let us see Chenda's development from a naive, sheltered girl to a strong, confident woman. I've already bought The Gospel According to Verdu and look forward to reading it.

Emilie creates her own unique world in the Steampunk fashion, and this story is a page turner. She quickly draws into the world of Chenda Frost. We follow Chenda through her tragedies, mishaps and adventures that lead her to the Airship Brofman and beyond. Along the way Chenda meets as colorful a cast of characters as a reader could hope for.

During the journey we watch the transformation of Chenda from a typical Victorian era wife, into a woman with mission and the drive to see it through.

This book I found by typing in steampunk myserties. And was pleasantly rewarded with one of the few hallmarks of such a world that doesn't involve darkness and despair as the general theme. It starts at a funeral of a great man brought down before his time and a far younger widow left in the wake and is at first at a loss as to what to do, let alone her own identity.
This also does follow one steampunk hallmark that too many authors have avoided for some reason: airships and thier crews, the clothing that both crew and passengers wld need... yes, I'm a stickler for details.
Then, 2/3s way through, it adds a new element, magic. A wonderful surprise if only in the way it was woven in and even explained earlier mysteries in the storyline.
With out ruining the tale, it is a wonderful story and brilliantly writen. A heluva ride from start to finish. Highly recomended!
