It's been a hectic pace this year, and I thought it might slow down a bit after the release of Simpletons. But, no! That was only the beginning!
We're in the running for the Steampunk Chronicle Readers Choice…

This post will be short and sweet, because I'm entertaining a spring cold that has decided to take up residence in my body. (Unwelcome guests are the worst, aren't they?)
So, without further ado, may I present to you Steampunk for Simpletons:…

First, I would like to give a steamy thank you to my readers. It was such a wonderful surprise to find a silver star next to The Chronos Clock on OmniLit/All Romance, which marks it as a bestseller in the fantasy/sci-fi category.
So thank you, gracias, merci.
The sequel, The Daemon Device, is…

... About putting things on the interwebs....think, dear friends, before you touch that keyboard. Then stop and think again, before you hit that "send" icon. I say this in all seriousness, because as many celebrities have learned to their detriment, your words can come back to haunt you even decades…Continue

Ooh, that title sounds grim. But there you have it - the Steampunk for Simpletons Kickstarter is, indeed, in its final hours.

Working on a Renaissance Steampunk (I've also heard clockpunk thrown around regarding Renaissance era) costume with a Doctor Who theme. For this, I'm not trying to do an incarnation of any of the doctors, but my own renegade Time Lord. At the moment, my biggest issue is just figuring out how to adequately combine renaissance and steampunk without going too heavy one way or the other.

The smell of the Thames, of…Continue
Picture this scenario:

Both the telephone and the phonograph were invented within a year of each other (1876-1877), so the basic technology was established in the Victorian age, which we all crave. Edison later on even suggested that his phonograph could be used as an answering machine. However, back then there was no…Continue
