Chester 5000: Isabelle and George

Chester5000 Isabelle and George coverTroy-based artist/author Jess Fink is raising money on Kickstarter for publishing the second book in her erotic, Victorian, sci-fi, romance series Chester 5000. Blurbage:

The first volume told the story of Pricilla, a Victorian woman with needs, who falls in love with Chester, a robot made by her husband, Robert. It's a romance with sci fi elements about empowering women's desire. The book was critically acclaimed and pages from it have been featured at the Museum of Sex in NYC.
The second chapter of Chester, Isabelle and George, continues the adventure and explores the character's first meetings. It follows Isabelle, a lonely orphan, reprimanded at every turn by her strict matron, and George, a promising inventor on the cusp of a brilliant invention. It's a romance with dramatic twists about secret desire, industrial corruption, and the oppressive social prisons that get in the way of love.

A few years back, we talked with Fink about her inspiration for the series, women taking control of their own sexuality, and how the identity of a creator can shape erotica.

The Kickstarter goal is $22,000 -- and the project is already past the $20k mark. Pledge rewards include a copy of book (both a pdf and hardcover), and other items.
