Author Spotlight: Kara Jorgensen

Hi all!

Today I’d like you to get to know steampunk writer Kara Jorgensen. I’m posting about her here to introduce you to her book series, Ingenious Mechanical Devices, and its newest release, Dead Magic. Check it out below, and show her some love!


The Ingenious Mechanical Devices series is a group of interconnected historical-fantasy stories set in the late Victorian Era where steam, electricity, and magic power the British Empire. The series follows six characters as they go into the world to find themselves and discover the mysteries of their world. Eilian and Hadley, the Earl and Countess of Dorset, forgo the life of an aristocrat to search for lost cities and ancient relics. Immanuel, a young zoology curator at the London Natural History Museum hides a magical secret, even from his companion, Adam. He shares a soul with Emmeline, a bratty teenage girl who can communicate with spirits. Together, they uncover cabals of witches out to summon otherworldly creatures, outwit a serial killer dressed as Spring-heeled Jack, and discover there is more magic in the world than they could have known.

Dead Magic (Ingenious Mechanical Devices #4): Available  for pre-order now! Out November 10th. 

Immanuel wants nothing more than a peaceful life as a scientist, but his happiness is short-lived when his past demons refuse to go quietly. As body-snatching spirits attack and creatures rise from the dead, he fears his sanity is slipping. Burdened with strange new powers, he struggles to hide them from his lover for fear of losing the only person he trusts.

But the woman who shares his soul has a secret of her own. Disillusioned with her life, Emmeline turns to a handsome suitor who offers her a world of limitless possibilities at an exclusive club. Rumors swirl of occult rituals and magic, and Emmeline soon fears he desires more than just her love.

Something wicked is heading for London that threatens to destroy everything Emmeline and Immanuel hold dear. And it wants more than secrets.


Get to know Kara!

Kara JorgensenKara Jorgensen is an author of fiction and professor from New Jersey who will probably die slumped over a Victorian novel. An anachronistic oddball from birth, she has always had an obsession with the Victorian era, especially the 1890s. Midway through a dissection in a college anatomy class, Kara realized her true passion was writing and decided to marry her love of literature and science through science fiction or, more specifically, steampunk. When she is not writing, she is watching period dramas, going to museums, or babying her beloved dogs.
