Author Jacob Donleyabout this book: Tears of Blood is about an airship commander, Ariana, also known as the first mate, who has to deal with the handling of the crew when her Captain issues irrational and insane orders. Throughout the short story, Ariana deals with her unwritten command, to keep the crew from mutiny, while dealing with her own issues about about love, and life in the skies. In the end, she must make a decision that will effect the lives of everyone aboard, including herself.

I wrote this story because I have always had fun watching pirate movies and the idea of airships. I've been listening to a lot of things about Steampunk, and I wanted to bring my take to it with this story. The steam part of this story is probably pretty obvious with a steam powered airship, but the punk is a little deeper. Here, in this story, Ariana has to deal with an authority figure on the ship. She is forced to make hard decisions that contradict her captain. Another aspect that is fairly Steampunk would be the equality of women, which comes to the front in many novels and stories of the genre. The crew is cast with men and women working many of the same jobs along side one another.
