Hello everyone! I have some exciting news: I'm starting to move forward toward the publication of my debut steampunk novel, Grigory's Gadget! I've decided to self-publish, for a multitude of reasons. Because of that decision, I'll have to pay for my own editor, designer, etc. So, I decided to run an Indiegogo campaign to help raise some funds. It's basically a pre-order campaign, with some other goodies as well (tea, candles, and t-shirts!). The link to the campaign is at the top of this post if you're interested.
Here's a little summary of my novel:
Zoya Orlova and her friends decide to leave their freezing authoritarian home of Lodninsk to start a new life in the tropical paradise of Mirgorod. When pirates attack their passenger ship, the friends find themselves caught in a struggle for possession of Zoya's family heirloom: a small gadget of compacted gears and wires. Unsure what power the gadget holds, Zoya feels she must protect it with her life. Will she and her friends be able to make it safely to their new home?
If my campaign is successfully funded, Grigory's Gadget will be available in March 2016.
