Some exciting news: Decay, the second book in my Steampunk series the Tesla Evolution (set in the Australian outback) has been chosen by UK's respected review site, the Bookbag, as one of the top ten self published books of 2014.

Hot on the heels of being awarded runner-up in the SelfPublishingReview's Full Moon 2014 Science Fiction Awards.

So Steampunk Aficionados:

I present to you my latest creation, which has been brewing for the last few years. Made by one of your very own antipodeans.

As this Discussion has progressed, I see that this is a veritable issue, affecting a number of citizens across the Empire. As a result of these well-reasoned requests for change, I plan to take steps to try to prevent duplicate emails from multiple postings from landing in people's Inboxes. In the future, if something I am doing is bothering you or causing dissent in the Forums, please report the issue to me in this manner. I certainly do not wish to antagonize anyone, and as soon as I am made aware of an issue I can take actions to prevent its re-occurence in the future.

Miss Orton, As the Professor had pointed out, it is not your publication I have issues with, but the quantity of notices that remind me of a ticker tape parade. As a possible solution, perhaps the moderator of Empire may be willing to create a new forum along the lines of the events listing that can showcase new publications of magazines, blogs and other prose. Rather than the more grapeshot effect currently employed.

I am certainly glad the standard has not fallen. I was actually referrencing a message I received from a like-minded soul who suggested that he would not be averse to fewer such gems arriving in his Inbox all at once. I believe the combination of your two esteemed options has thus presented a "growth" opportunity for myself in order to better the presentation of The Chronicle on the forums. :)

Dear Ms. Orton , I never suggested that I was in any way irritated . Your ' Chronicle ' is a gem . Regards , Sebastian Fate

Comment by Leslie Orton on October 31, 2014 at 4:45am
Why, certainly Professor! While I am of course aware that since people belong to multiple groups across the Empire, and whenever one person posts something in more than one group, there is bound to be crossover, I had no idea my multiple postings were reaching a level of irritation! I am sure there is a way to post in selective, diverse groups that should stem the tide of too many crossover, duplicate messages. I shall take this situation in hand for the next edition of The Chronicle. I cannot promise there will be NO duplicate messages (it is impossible for me to keep track if which people belong to multiple groups, and based on that ratio how many crossover messages will end up in their personal email accounts) but I shall certainly endeavour from this point onward to minimize multiple emails arriving in people's Inboxes. Thank you for making me aware of this sensitive issue.
