Greetings Balogun!

 

Thank you kindly for your offer of friendship, and I hope to see you around the Empire. Best of luck with your book too-- have you heard of SWAG (Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild)? I think you might find them a good resource too: http://steampunkwriters.ning.com/

 

Cheers,

Ay-leen
