Official Steampunk Holmes Press Release

Steampunk Holmes: Legacy of the Nautilus Enhanced Book for iPad Gives Readers an Innovative Storytelling Experience

On September 30, 2013 Noble Beast released our first enhanced book, Steampunk Holmes: Legacy of the Nautilus.

Enhanced books are fairly new to adult fiction, so let me describe our product. Steampunk Holmes is an interactive book app with

  • optional audio narrative
  • illustrated designs of devices
  • gorgeous painted illustrations
  • character profiles
  • an interactive map of 19th Century London
  • a musical score by the fantastic steampunk band Abney Park

The app is available on  iTunes for $9.99, exclusively for the iPad. Most enhanced books are either non-fiction or for children, so we find we have a very open market. However, it's also so new that most people don't know what an enhanced book app is...but that’s one of the challenges of being a pioneer!

Critics are already raving about Steampunk Holmes. The book has been nominated for an Airship Award for Best Fiction at Steamcon and was mentioned in the New York Times. Here are some of our favorite reviews:  

“[Steampunk Holmes is] revitalizing old-fashioned storytelling in new ways.”

“Steampunk Holmes was a joy to read!”

"Really enjoyed the book and even have my mum into it now."
-Twitter Follower (we are a sucker for our mums)

Steampunk Holmes: Legacy of the Nautilus iPad app is just as whimsical, beautiful, and engaging as its creators promised."


If any book reviewers or app reviewers are interested in getting a free copy for their review site, please email: tara@noblebeast dot com. We j'adore reviews as much as Sherlock Holmes j'adores data, data, data.


Also, the giveaways are still going on!  If you share the iTunes app link (and tag us) on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, you'll be eligible to win a free copy of the app, and the gorgeous octopus hat pin from Victorian Curiosities.

But that's not all! If you buy or review the app, you'll be eligible to win your pick of any Steampunk Holmes Digital Art!

We have some really exciting news to share tomorrow about a future project! Stay tuned...
