"While I'm part of the unpublished crowd, I've done some research on self-publishing and I have to mirror some of the statements thus far about the changing world of books and publishing. Self-publishing is definitely not the "oh…"

J.R. replied to Bryce Raffle's discussion How do you say "douche" in Victorian English? in the group The Aether Guild of Writers
"Bryce, I've found this site helpful in looking for those period-appropriate slang terms when the more modern, anachronistic ones creep in (and unfortunately seem to fit too well at times). Maybe one in the list will help. Happy writing my…"

"I think there's room to revel in the romantic beauty of time past via the Victorian era, but also room to get down and dirty and examine some of the "scary realism" within the steampunk genre that focuses or finds its base in the same…"

"In the spirit of the Showdown and Tesla vs. Edison I saw this today and thought I'd share. While not necessarily steampunk, it's pretty cool and I think Tesla would be impressed. LIFX: The Light Bulb Reinvented"

J.R. replied to J.R.'s discussion Writing About Aether in the group The Aether Guild of Writers
"I totally agree Jim. My main concern was committing some steampunk taboo that I was unaware of. So far, I feel pretty solid about the story and am just about to finish cleaning up chapter 1, and then onto writing chapter 2 and so forth."

Profile Information

Still relatively new to the whole steampunk culture, but extremely fascinated by it. I'm a writer and enjoy the creative nature of steampunk and how it also pays tribute to time and culture past while blending it with something new. Hoping to meet others and learn more.

Currently working on my first steampunk novel and hoping for it to be part one of a four book YA series.

You can learn more about me and read some of my writing on my website:
